I don't write reviews because I give the benefit of the doubt (hence 'Poor' rating vs. 'Terrible' rating). In this situation, I felt it should be duly noted that the unit smells stale (bought air freshener at Publix next door), the scuff marks all over the walls from prior visitors make it look a bit too worn out, carpeting that should be replaced due to stains, a balcony covered with leaves, dirt and a few cigarette butts, two of the frying pans still had burnt 'whatever' caked on them, only 4 towels for five guests - and no face cloths, broken ironing board, one door coming off its hinges, a missing tv remote and - they fail to mention that this area of Vista Cay is not near the main area, so you must drive to enjoy the amenities, such as the pool, billiards room, etc seen in the photos - unless you want to scale a 6ft wall to get onto that side of the community (which you won't want to do in the event you hurt yourself, bleed and have no towels left). I tried to call when I was at the residence to let them know of my concerns and was basically told that there is nothing they could do. Since they wouldn't do anything, I thought I would write to spare all of you. Don't waste your money.
Thank you for taking the time to share you thoughts. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Vista Cay. I am aware that you called the office for additional linens and were provided with additional towels on that same day. In discussion with the office I believe that you had indicated that any small marks were minor general 'wear and tear' rather than anything significant.
The condo is located behind Publix, close to the secondary pool. To use the faciltiies at the Clubhouse and main pool is a 5 minute lakeside stroll. There is a gate next to the vehicular access for the resort so entering and leaving this part of the resort should not be a problem.

"Good and clean place, enjoyed our stay"

The place was neat and clean. We had no issues getting in or with the place itself. We stayed on level 1 with easy acess after parking car, in and out with luggage etc. We were a family fo 4 adults and 2 children. after breakfast, we were out at the parks getting in only for dinner or bedtime... welcome place after a long day -- clean, well kept premises, secure with gated entry. the perimeter abuts a Publix market that was very helpful to get essentials. Quick on and off freeway with ramps about half mile from property, and next exit to international drive. Loved and will stay again.

The apartment was perfect for our party size, great looking lands and amenities, close to all major attractions, a plaza with a grocery store that has everything was walking distance and a Walgreens a block down open till late, updated interior and cozy.
The only negative thing I have to say was that there was a small bug problem. The apartment looked completely clean just some dried up bugs in a corner or two. Also, tiny sugar ants appeared in the kitchen after we started cooking in the apartment. Nothing too major that it runied our stay though. I would have also liked better kitchen cookware but, it was enough to get by.
