Is it safe to leave valuables in the home?
Vista Cay is generally a very safe place. Your home may be furnished with a safe for your valuables and in some cases an alarm sustem. Please check that your doors and windows are closed and locked when you leave the property and use all the normal precautions you would at home. The resort has security gates and it is patrolled by a security company throughout the evening and night.

Is it safe for our children to play near the lake?
Off the path, NO! We would ask that your children are always supervised by an adult on the grounds of the resort. There is an abundance of wildlife for the children to watch, but never approach! around the lake, squirrels, rabbits, tiny geckos, herons, ducks and a multitude of other interesting birds. 
Please not. Florida is semi tropical and does have dangerous wildlife; poisonous snakes, aligators, scorpions and fire ants,... Stay on the path at all times and be aware. They are more scared of you so, if you encounted somehting scary, stand back and let it move away. Do not approach it!
