Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, Full Tour Including 3 Bedroom Beach Cottage, Restaurant, Pool and Grounds – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We enjoyed two nights at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort (below, left) thanks to a friend who invited us for a stay at his Grand Villa beach cottage!  The lobby is spacious and comfortable (below, right), and features the general store, “Island Grove Packing Company“. A friend of mine calls a Vero Beach visit “forced relaxation” and I agree with that sentiment. Without all the theme parks and other distractions it is much easier to really relax and unwind.

We were in #1475, The Green Turtle Cottage (below, left). There are several balconies, including one out front and two in the back (one on each level). With three bedrooms and a living area that encompasses 2125 square feet, it is very spacious! The view of the beach (below, right) is fantastic.

From windows upstairs, you can see the ocean (below, left). The best view, though,is from the balcony! The dining room and fully equipped kitchen are part of the upstairs living space (below right).

Sea turtles are a big part of Vero Beach, as well as at the resort. Artwork celebrates the ocean creatures (below, left), and one of our towel animals was also in the form of a turtle (below, right). I enjoyed hearing the waves at night and it kind of made me feel like we were on a cruise ship as we were very close to the ocean.

The balcony had plenty of room for our party of 8 to relax and enjoy the ocean views plus also offered great views of the stars at night (below, left). Denise and I pose outside on the balcony before heading to the campfire (below, right).

Video #1 – Disney’s Vero Beach Resort 3 Bedroom Beach Cottage Tour 7/23/11 Vacation Club – We stayed for 2 nights in a Grand Villa Cottage at Disney’s Vero Beach. We didn’t have a chance to videotape before we stayed, so this is the cleaned up version at the end of the trip (not what the rooms looked like when we arrived).

We enjoyed a nice meal at Shutters (below, left). The restaurant is immersed in the aquatic theme, with photos, boats and other ocean-themed decor (below, right).

I enjoyed my “Disney Vacation Club” sandwich – and yes that is really the name (below, left). On our way back to the cottage, a cast member creates enormous bubbles (below, right).

The pool and slide are very inviting on a hot day although I found the water to be on the warm side (below left and right). There are many activities in this area, including a sauna, bikes, game room, fitness center and miniature golf.

A gator eyes the ball on the 9 hole miniature golf course (below, left). And at Bleachers, burgers and other food items are served up poolside – and they even carry refillable mugs! (below, right)

Beach chairs, umbrellas, and ocean equipment is available for rent on the beach (below, left). Sea turtle nests have tape around them to try to keep guests aware (below, right).

If you want to know how far it is to any other Disney Vacation Club resort, all you have to do is read the sign (below, left). We found it while on the way to the evening campfire (below, right). The campfire includes a sing along and s’mores. My advice to anyone attending the campfire is be very aware of the sand fleas or no-see-ums as Disney calls them in the guest information guide. These little critters can really leave their mark so I would wear socks and sneakers and long pants if at all possible. Bites aside, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Disney’s Vero Beach Resort and I’m sure we’ll be returning again!

Video #2 – Disney’s Vero Beach Resort Pool and Outside Tour, Green Cabin Room 7/23/11 Disney Vacation Club – Denise spent part of the morning taking video around the pool area, which includes the children’s playground and mini-golf course. We also have a little video of the beach and the Green Cabin Room, which we enjoyed two meals at.
