Highly reccomended. What an amazing trip. I can't say enough good things about Middle Cay. It all started with Sonal the owner who did an amazing job preparing us for the trip and arranging all the transportation from the airport. She was very accessible via whatsapp and always willing to give us recommendations and help answer all of our questions. Also note we are planning to go back again in the spring as we all had such a great time.
We traveled with a group of 8 of us. 4 adults and 4 kids ages 10-12
This was one of our first VRBOs so we weren’t sure what to expect. We are SPG platinum and big fans of the Four Seasons hotel chain—I tell you this because we are very picky about where we stay especially on family vacations.
About Middle Cay
Located a short boat ride from ELH airport—literally 3 mins (Sonal arranged it). From the moment we stepped on the boat all we could say was WOW. We have traveled to most of the major islands in the Caribbean and enjoy staying at 5 star resorts. The house and furnishings are up to the standards of a 5 star hotel. The house is very spacious and offers plenty of room for kids and adults to either share together time or have their own space if needed. The kitchen is great and is fully stocked with all the necessary appliances and cooking utensils. Beds and linens are top notch and water pressure in showers is great. Internet and WIFI are great and kids streamed videos.
The grounds and views from the island are truly breathtaking. An infinity pool overlooks the ocean with high end lounge chairs and cushions. I spent most of my mornings here drinking coffee and watching the sea turtles hunt for food. There is a large hammock next to the ocean which allows you to kick back and get lost in time. My biggest decision in the morning was whether to sit poolside or on the hammock . I have stayed at many of the nicer resorts in the Carribean and the view from the Cay rivals any of them.
House is staffed with a groundskeeper (Henry). He is great and will help you drink fresh coconuts and even helped the kids get live bait for fishing. We also had a house manager and boat captain ( father and son team) that acted as our personal tour guides. They were amazing and really made the trip. We also had a housekeeper who was there to make sure the place was clean. This was one of my bigger fears since I have not used VRBO before but was pleasantly surprised at how great it was
