Comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

Some minor mechanical repairs necessary (wobbly toilet in master bedroom, very loose sink handle in kitchen). Otherwise clean, and great views of sunrise. Near pool, safe, walgreens on site!

Very Happy

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Vista cay reception around 10pm and was checked in with minimal fuss .

The apartment was very nice, comfortable and clean with a view over the clubhouse and pool. The facilities in the apartment were ideal, with a washing machine, cooker, and a large fridge. It could have done with an electric kettle though.

Outside of the apartment were Walgreens and publix both easily accessible.

We did have some kind of pre arrangement with the owner for a late checkout but the onsite management wasn't happy about it and we had to leave earlier than planned. Also once your checkout time has passed your door key no longer works in the door, so one could get locked out whilst taking their luggage down to the car.

Apart from that small gripe at the end we had an excellent stay in a very nice apartment and if we are ever in this area again we would definitely look to stay here.

Thanks.

Fabulous condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Booked our apartment online directly with the owner through homeaway.co.uk (Harvard Valderhaug). The owner checked in with us and was prompt in replying etc.

We arrived at Vista Cay late afternoon and checked in at reception no problem.

Top floor apartment (lifts available) was clean, well equipped and spacious and perfect for our family - as described in the advert. We were close to the reception and pool. We didn’t have much interaction with the management other than a couple of things in the room which maintenance sorted very promptly so no complaints on that front. I can’t recall seeing or hearing any of our neighbouring apartment occupants and was quiet with plenty of parking outside our block.

The pool was a reasonable size and could be a bit busy with various ball games and families enjoying themselves but that suited us and our kids made some friends. It tended to be busier around dusk till 10pm. Other times there were very few people in it. The water was always warm and no too deep (5ft at most but more like 3-4ft at the sides) being child friendly.

Our kids especially liked the Friday night Karaoke and Saturday pool party run by Jay (local ‘DJ’) which mainly involved kids singing their favourite tunes or Limbo dancing, Hula Hooping etc. It’s not as cheesy as it sounds.

There was a bar pool side selling alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and you could get ice-creams from the shop next to reception just off the pool. A couple of games just off the pool which I felt were reasonable value (2 tokens a go – 4 tokens cost $1) and a small arcade. We did succumb to giving the kids the odd dollar but it felt reasonably good value.

Within walking distance is the Publix supermarket, SubWay, NYPD Pizza (probably the best Pizza we had during our stay). If you’re doing a ‘big shop’ you need a car to cart it back anyway!

Our stay was primarily around Sea World, Aquatica, Discovery Cove which were a 5 minute drive – for us a really good location but then again not far to anywhere.

Vista Cay was our base for 12 days and provided a great base to holiday from. There were a lot of UK travellers in the pool but also other nationalities. I would definitely recommend Vista Cay.

Vista Cay Resort

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in the same condo at Vista Cay and we loved it just as much the second time around. The property at Vista Cay is gorgeous and we just love this unit close to the pool with the three bedrooms and updated televisions and beautiful views from the balcony. We hated to leave! Thank you again for a wonderful, memorable vacation! We will be back for round 3!
