Cozy Townhome, Conveniently Located, Nice Owners

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely townhome in Coral Cay Resort. The owner responded promptly to all our emails and was a pleasure to do business with. We were able to pay in American dollars to a local rental management company in Florida. The local management was also available if anything were to go wrong. In addition, the maintenance guys at the resort helped us a couple times with little things like why the Jacuzzi didn’t work (it just needed more water).
At first, when we took the turn off 192, we wondered what the house and resort would be like since the homes nearby weren’t quite as nice as we expected, but once we turned into the gated community, all was well. There are two nice playgrounds in the community. We, especially the kids, were disappointed the community pool is not heated so we chose not to use it (in January). I did see some people swimming in it on a semi-warm day, but that water must have been cold! The Jacuzzi on the back porch was fabulous and has lots of jets and power. We didn’t get a chance to use the movie room at the clubhouse, but it looked nice. By the way, this particular home is only 3 or 4 houses from the clubhouse.
The townhouse itself is small, but cozy. We had 4 adults and 4 children and we got comfortable and enjoyed spending time together in the open living/dining/kitchen area. The kids spent a lot of time upstairs with the Wii anyway. There’s seating only for 4 at the dining table, but the living room is right there so we were all still together even though we couldn’t eat at the same table.
The bedrooms upstairs have large closets, but the one downstairs was small. We made do by utilizing the space upstairs. The game/kids’ room has a Wii with a couple games available. Bring your own too and a couple extra remotes if you can. We also brought our laptops and used the free WiFi in the home. All the bedrooms have TVs except the one with twin beds. There is an extra half bath downstairs, so 2 1/2 bath total. The showers weren't as hot as we were used to at home, but the kichen and sink water was. It may be a safety setting. There was a porta-crib available.
Lastly, Coral Cay is conveniently located less than 5 minutes from shopping, mini golf, restaurants and even a super Walmart, where reasonable priced groceries, souvenirs, household items, prescriptions or anything else you need are available. We went there often. The community is about 15 to 25 minutes from Disney, depending on which park you go to.
