Recent Salt Cay reviews

  • Beautiful House on a Beautiful Island

    "We just returned from our second stay at The Charming House, and had a wonderful week in this restored gem. The house is located in the South District of Salt Cay, and is a three minute walk from the Atlantic. The house is furnished in classic island style and the many doors and windows keep the interior breezy and comfortable (there are also many fans throughout the house). Our kids, ages 6 and 9 love the enclosed garden and the freedom to come and go. We love the second floor verandah and its west views toward the sea. The kitchen has everything a cook could need. We brought provisions for breakfast and lunch and also cooked a few dinners at the house. Groceries on the island are limited, so it's helpful to pack what you can. We absolutely love this house and plan to head back to it as soon as possible! Debbie, the house manager, is terrific, as is Charles, the owner! Charming House is the perfect place to escape from life's pressures and to truly relax."

  • Amazing Historic Home on the Quaint Island of Salt Cay

    "Our family stayed in the Brown House for 9 nights in July. We were a little unsure of staying somewhere so hot without air conditioning in the middle of the summer, but we were pleasantly surprised by how well the tradewinds blew through the home to keep things cool! It was actually very nice to spend the hottest part of the day in the lounge just feeling the breeze and reading a book. The house itself is very grand. It feels this way because the ceilings are at least 12 feet high and all painted white to help control the heat. It's has been beautifully restored to a historic charm with antique-looking furnishings and modern amenities. It brought our vacation to a whole new level. I enjoyed just walking around the patio, enjoying the views from every angle. The bedrooms were beautifully appointed and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is amazing...full-sized industrial fridge and freezer, stainless steel island and counters, and gas stovetop. We ate all of our meals on the oceanfront terrace, enjoying the views. I would strongly recommend renting a golf cart for at least a couple of days to explore all there is to see on Salt Cay. It's also nice to have in the heat even if just traveling a short distance. We were there primarily for scuba diving with SC Divers. We had some amazing dives. The dive master Richard was excellent...very safety conscience. All dives were computer and air dependent which meant we could stay down as long as the computers and air supply allowed. I think our longest dive was about 100 minutes! Our host was very accommodating and arranged for babysitting for our children while we were out. She allowed the children to go with the babysitter to another property she manages, Pirate's Hideaway, to use the beautiful pool there. As another bonus, we discovered our babysitter (Flor) is a masseuse, and we each had hour massages right on our own patio for very reasonable price! Our host also arranged to have our groceries in stock when we arrived and checked in several times through our stay to make sure everything was going well, offering help if needed."

  • A wonderful house, on a wonderful island

    "The Compass Rose was the absolute perfect place for us on Salt Cay. It was furnished fully with everything we could have ever needed (plenty of dishes/cups/glasses/kitchen utensils) towels & sheets, etc. The Rose is situated in the South of the island, and you get an amazing sunrise AND sunset (especially on the raised deck), as well as a perfect, cooling breeze blowing through all day. The house is furnished with plenty of fans (ceiling and floor type) and staying cool was not a problem. There is a modern entertainment system (with Bose surround sound system), microwave, a nice BBQ grill, fridge, screened in porch area with fans, all of the furniture is comfortable, functional, and very attractive. The owners have done an excellent job with decorations and furnishings. The yard is nice and level, with numerous local types of plants growing throughout the space. (Including Turks Heads cactuses/cacti) We really enjoyed the outdoor shower (there is an indoor one as well!) and sitting on the upper deck watching the sunset. We found the Compass Rose to be just within reach of everything we needed on the island, but just far enough out of reach to ensure privacy and solitude. We would definitely reccomend the Rose and look forward to hopefully being able to stay there again soon!"

  • Pirates Hideaway Pool

    "Candy allowed our family to use the pool at Pirates Hideaway while we were staying at The Brown House. The kids really loved it! There is a small shallow area which is great for younger children and then a larger free-form area for swimming. The area is beautifully landscaped. The kids had a great time playing here each morning while we were scuba diving."
