“Delightful apartment at the water's edge” Lovely apartment with the major added bonus of the water lapping outside. Not only that, but during our stay as well as the many "flying fish" that it's great fun to observe, we also saw dolphins literally metres away from the apartment terrace on 3 of the 7 days we were there. Wonderful experience for us Brits!
Nearby St Petersburg has a great selection of restaurants and bars, plus some excellent delicatessens where you can buy a delicious feast to prepare back at the apartment.
Oh, and there's also a large, very quiet private swimming pool a very short stroll away from the apartment, which is only available to apartment residents. All in all, thoroughly recommended.
“Superb accommodation set in stunning surroundings with excellent facilities.” The accommodation was first rate, spacious and tastefully presented with carefully chosen furniture and soft furnishings. The condo has everything to make a family stay comfortable and relaxing. It is situated in stunning surroundings, meticulously maintained with excellent on site facilities. All the staff were helpful, friendly and courteous. In addition to this, it is in close proximity to all of the Disney Parks and other major attractions. We were delighted with our accommodation and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I would definitely go back and unreservedly recommend this vacation rental.
“One word fabulous” Great location with everything you need and more! Luxury condo on a beautiful complex, swimming pools, hot tubs, tennis court, private beach. Liked it so much booked again for next year.
“Amazing amenities, perfect location, large space” This place was an amazing find; much cheaper than the hotel that my friends stayed at and it was right on the beach, with a pool!
It was only me and my girlfriend who stayed here but with the two bedrooms there could have been another couple or possible 3 friends additional (5 people would be very comfortable in this spacious condo). With the beach view, pool with tiki bar and the location to the stores and bars (right across the street) this was the perfect getaway spot for us.
“Fabulous condo” This was our 3rd visit to Vista Cay and definitely the best condo we have stayed in - by far! Spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and everything appeared to be new! I loved the style and the owners had thought of every detail. We will certainly ask for this unit next time we visit Orlando.
“Excellent, wish we could have stayed longer” The complex is in a quiet location so you can relax before venturing out and about, the accomodation is clean and well kept with a lovely view over the lake. Its in easy reach of all facilities and parks. The pool is clean and well maintained and really refreshing when returning home after a day in the theme parks. Our only regret is that we had to come home.... best start saving. The booking of the condo was smooth and trouble free, communication was excellent and Mary bent over backwards to help us with our booking. Mary's friend Laura in Florida met us at the condo whan we arrived and supplied us with a welcome pack to save us having to rush out to the supermarket. Top Marks and definately will reccomend and use again. :-)
“An ideal waterfront setting and lovely condo” The waterfront setting is ideal for those who like to sip tea or wine on the enclosed/private lanai (view best on second or third floors) or walk uncrowded beaches in either direction. We stayed in Unit 208 in Building A at Fisherman's Cove.This unit was very comfortable, with all the kitchen equipment you would need. There is a lot of storage in the unit. Beach toys and low beach chairs are available in the closet. Guests may use the charcoal bbqs behind the building set by the docks on the bay. The kingsize bed in the master was very comfortable. The bunkbed set up in the second bedroom may not suit everyone. There are two fold up roll away single cots. Very good quality towels were provided as well as professionally laundered bedding. The coin laundromat was only steps away (on each floor). Only three floors but an elevator was appreciated when moving lugguage or groceries.The grounds were beautifully kept. We love watching the water and it changed each day. We often saw a heron keeping the fishing people company. We even saw divers once or twice as well as surfers and beach walkers and joggers. When walking south from the condo, we came across kayers that beached their kayaks on the bay side and then walked over the dunes to the gulf side where we saw them. We even saw about a dozen kayaks in the bay behind the condo one evening after dark. There are several places to rent boats, bikes, etc.The famous white sand at the main Siesta Key beach was firm and a very wide beach with life guards. You can even rent a lounge and sun umbrella. (Go early to get your money's worth.) This beach also has the large parking lot, washrooms and snack bar. Expect it tio be croiwded and parking limited on hot days and during special events.
This was our first trip to the Siesta Key area but we hope to return many times! We like to eat at waterfront restarants and we did so almost nightly. Be advised that you will need a car as most of these places were not on Siesta Key itself (except the near by Turtles on Little Sarasota Bay and Boatyard) but ranged from 15 to 40 minutes away (Santa Maria Island, to Venice) . Check out the Mote Aquarium's boat trips. We enjoyed an afternoon on board with a marine biologist and at the onland exhibits. Marina Jack in Sarasota is definitely worth one or two visits, for lunch, sailing excursions, walking in nearby parks. We happened to visit downtown Sarasota during the Chalk Festival. The art work on the closed street was very impressive. Like history? Plan a visit to Historic Spanish Point, off Hwy 41, and ask to join a guided tour,no extra charge. Six of us accompanied a guide on a very interesting and informative two hour walk of the grounds of Spanish Point.
For shopping, the grocery store at Crescent Beach was handy. Go out to Hwy 41 and you will find all the big stores and coffee places...if you want that. Hwy 41 is a good road, wide in many parts, but like 'street anywhere'. We did like the fact that signs well back from the intersection provide the name of the street coming up at the lights.
Davidson's Drugs near Crescent Grocery has two computers and printer for internet and boarding passes.
Our condo rental was the perfect fit for us! It would be a good fit for adults or a family. There are many condos on Siesta Key and they may be on the beach but well back from the water's edge.
“A great place to stay for Disney.” Fantastic service from first email to phone call on arrival to check everything was in order. Sue couldn’t have been more helpful. The accommodation was beautiful, clean and very spacious, with all the accessories we needed. The swimming pool, tennis courts and on site shop were only a short walk away. Thank you for a lovely stay
“Excellent Stay in Key Largo” As regular visitors to the Florida Keys we have stayed in this Apartment many times and have found it to be a great place for relaxing as it has brilliant outside facilities within the complex, including Boat docking, swimming pool, tennis courts,communial indoor area and barbecue area.
The Apartment was clean and functional and being in B building, away from any Road noise, it also has easy access to all the complex facilities.
Moon Bay is within easy reach of many good Restaurants and Bars.
We loved it so much we will be returning this December if Available.
“if i had the money i would buy one.” a clean and well maintained condo, a great base to visit all the attractions. outlets/malls, publix, walmart and target are also close i would recommend the longhorn, smokey bones and the outback for food, we used the pool on the frist day to aid the recovery from the flight which my son loved. the conde is convenient to I4 and main road but not to close to be a noise probem. this condo offered everything that we required to enjoy our break. shellie was fantastic with regards the booking and also gave advice on car hire and flights.
i have no problems reccomending this condo and have already contacted shellie with regard a future booking.
