Salt Cay’s Quaint Cottages and Beachfront Rental Villas
Salt Cay is a very small island, and the only accommodations available are rental villas. These options are typically furnished with functional kitchens. Cleaning/maid service is generally not included, or may only be offered once per week. There are no full-service hotels or resorts.
Several of the accommodations are located on the beach, but not all of them are. However, due to the small size of the island, the beach is within walking no matter where you are located. Complimentary airport pickup is almost always included.
Which Location is Best?
Salt Cay is a beautiful little island, and every district offers its own charm. There’s no unpleasant area, and the beach is never a far walk off. If you’ve reserved a golf cart for transport during your stay, getting to anywhere on the island is quick and easy.
The Balfour Town and North District regions are within easy access to many of the island’s services, restaurants, Deane's Dock, and the airport. Dive and snorkel boat excursions depart from this area.
South District is home to most of the island’s residents, and is separated from Balfour Town by the Town Salinas and the mile (1.6 km) long waterfront Victoria Street. This neighborhood is a great choice for birdwatchers as it’s adjacent to the wetlands of South Creek.
Bookings and Reservations
To book (and typically get the best rates), simply contact the villa manager via email or telephone. They will usually ask for a deposit (up to 25%) before arrival and the balance on arrival.
Local dive companies offer vacation packages that include accommodation and dive trips. If you’re interested in diving, consider inquiring first at one of the local dive companies to see the deals they offer.
Keep in mind that some of the villas may simply be a room in a house, whereas others are full-fledged stand-alone buildings.
A government-imposed 12% accommodation tax is applicable on top of all rates. Clarify if this is included in the rate.
