The Cays at Downtown Ocotillo will start construction on Phase 2 Feb. 6, just before the official grand opening of Phase 1.
“Our new phase will include a beautiful clubhouse that is over 4,500 square feet, with additional entertainment space including an exhibition kitchen for entertaining, two-sided fireplace, media and social lounge area, billiard game room and telescoping doors that open up to a pathway to the pool,” said Shantelle Monongye of The Cays at Downtown Ocotillo.
Phase 1 is closing out, with immediate occupancy. Those who are considering buying should consider that incentives are ending soon. Prospective residents can choose from a selection of single-level one- and two-bedroom units with den floor plans and penthouse (fourth floor) units with loft and an additional bathroom. Each of the first-floor units feature large private patios and all units come with gated, underground parking and elevator access from the parking garage to all levels. One-bedroom, 1.5-bath units are priced from the $200,000s. For more information, call 480-248-3737 or visit thecaysatocotillo.com.
Monongye said amenities are aplenty with The Cays at Downtown Ocotillo, which is located at 2511 W. Queen Creek Rd. It sits within walking distance to the area’s dining and entertainment district, which includes eateries like The Living Room, CHoP and Rock Lobster. The Cays at Downtown Ocotillo is close to the Ocotillo Golf Resort, Chandler Fashion Center, MLB Spring Training facilities, Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino, and Lone Butte and Talking Stick Resort casinos.
“We take pride in the location,” Monongye said. “There are wonderful restaurants in Downtown Ocotillo and we’re 5 minutes from Chandler Fashion Center and we’re close to the Ocotillo Golf Resort and we provide wonderful discounts for golf.”
She added that The Cays at Downtown Ocotillo is in a prime location because it’s “off the beaten path.”
Wireless internet is available in the clubhouse, fitness center and outdoor pool area. The health club features top-of-the-line fitness equipment. A resort pool and spa is the centerpiece of The Cays at Downtown Ocotillo, and the property boasts private cabanas and an outdoor fireplace. Manmade lakes and walking trails beautify the property.
“When it gets a little warmer, we’ll have water aerobics,” she said. “We have a beautiful resort pool with four fire features that surround that for beautiful ambiance. To be able to sit out there with a glass of wine … it is breathtaking.”
The Cays at Downtown Ocotillo is the only community that offers penthouses, which are offered as one- and two-bedroom, single-level condominiums. The entire complex offers state-of-the-art smart technology with the latest fiber-optic technology that allows 150 mb of upload and download internet speed.
“Our homeowners are very, very happy,” she said. “It makes it seamless for them. They just plug in their laptop or their desktop and they have internet access. It’s that simple—plug and play.”
Monongye said the variety of features is appealing to homeowners.
“We have primary owners, who are 30 to 75,” she said. “We have a real array of different people who have purchased at The Cays. There are a lot of young professionals, or people who have downsized from their home. We have couples and single people who have moved in as well within that age group.
“We have a lot of second homeowners who purchase from us. They enjoy our beautiful weather. They love The Cays and they have the ability to enjoy a beautiful condo, lock the door and not worry about it. They can go back to whatever cold city they live in and they know their place will be secure, well managed and well maintained.”
