In addition to the 5 Disney parks just 6 miles away, Seaworld is within view on Int'l Drive, and Universal Studios, Harry Potter's Wizarding World just 3 miles
Guests have described their stay at this property as surprisingly spacious, and nicely appointed. The Isles at Vista Cay location is perfect for all the many attractions available in the Orlando area. In contrast to Davenport or Kissimmee, the central location minimizes your time spent in traffic on the Interstate Freeways. Dozens of restaurants are found on nearby International Drive and W. Sand Lake Road, or cook in your own villa with the fully equipped kitchen. The two resort pools are uncrowded unlike local hotels, and one is located directly in front of the building. The main clubhouse has all the amenities including a business centre, concierge, and sports court. Meeting rooms are available and can be scheduled for private events or business groups.
Two enormous and glamorous shopping malls are within a five mile drive, the 'Florida Mall,' or the 'Mall at Millenia.' Alternatively, the two nearby Designer Outlet Malls are found on International Drive. Alternatively, view the exotic headwaters of the Everglades in a Fan-powered boat, or visit the world-renowned 'Gatorland' park and preserve. You could get even closer to nature with a canoe rental at Wekiva State Park, with all Florida wildlife including the giant Manatees in winter. An evening stroll at exciting 'Downtown Disney' boardwalk or 'Universal Citywalk' will feature local nightlife and music, as well as famous restaurants and entertainment such as the Blue Man Group, or the Cirque de Soleil. There is much to entertain the visitor in this tropical vacation paradise.
We are a family of four that loves to get away on vacation. Our favorite destinations are California, Europe and of course Florida. We have relatives in four countries, and try to encourage family and friends to join us on trips whenever possible. The vacation homes with extra bedrooms and a large kitchen allow us to enjoy quality vacation time with everyone under the same roof. We typically enjoy big family meals, and games afterwards.
We can't wait to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter which opens in the Spring of 2010!!
Hugh or Lisa MacIsaac purchased this condo in 2007
Orlando, Florida allows so many types of vacations. Vista Cay is situated so close to everything, but is quiet, uncrowded and luxurious. The pool and clubhouse are always never full, and the staff friendly and courteous. Great shopping is nearby including Outlet Malls, restaurants are all around, and there are so many entertainment options. The resort is between the Disney Parks, and Universal Studios, close to Sea World, and all are a short drive. You will not waste your vacation time in traffic. We chose to own here for all those reasons, and because it is so easy to Fly into Orlando, with direct flights from everywhere. It's a great escape from winter in New York, and sometimes the OC Convention Center next door has a business conference I can attend.
"We really want to thank you for offering such a good service in your apartment in Orlando. It is not only perfectly equipped with anything required but also comfortable and with a great taste in the decoration details! We have enjoyed every day of the week we stayed there and we really want you to know it to keep on with this quality of service."
My family of 4 recently stayed at this condo from December 26 - January 5th and had a wonderful time. The size of the unit especially for the price was excellent. We have stayed in other smaller units for more money in the past. We were also joined by my inlaws for a few days and still found the unit spacious enough.
I was a bit worried about check in at the main clubhouse as past condo rentals have turned check in into a timeshare pitch but this was not the case. Check in was fast and effortless.
One of the best things about this unit is the location. The building location is perfect; slightly away from the main clubhouse area making it quieter and more relaxed, a short walk to the pool/hot tub area and BBQ pits and an excellent view of the lake from the balcony. The publix supermarket a short walk away is also perfect for stocking up the unit with food.
We visited the Disney parks during our stay which are a short 15 minute drive if you don't get stuck in the horrific Orlando traffic.
Upon arrival we found the unit very clean and well stocked with necessities. We had no issues with the internet even with two Ipad obsessed kids using it at the same time. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable.
We only encountered a few minor issues. The tv service was intermittent and didn't work much of the time. I followed the troubleshooting provided and even had the front desk come up to assist but this didn't really help. It wasn't a big deal as we were out and about most of the time anyways. I was happy to see a water filter in the fridge but could not get the water to dispense. The unit kept making ice all week but no water. The dishwasher also didn't seem to work very well so we washed dishes by hand for the week. The decor of the unit could use some updating as the couches in the main room are literally falling apart but none of these issues would keep me from returning.
The outdoor grounds and pool area were very well maintained and we enjoyed them greatly. I observed maintenance people cleaning and keeping up the property contstantly. In the past I've rented condos with "heated" pools that leave the lips blue and the teeth chattering. This pool was the perfect temperature and we never had an issue securing chairs no matter what time of day we headed for a swim (also a rarity with our past rentals).
Overall this unit was excellent and I will certainly recommend to friends and family and book again myself in the future.
Very easy access to everything you could possibly need for a fantastic vacation. This condo is superb with services to match, maintenance were on site within minutes for any issue, and the whole experience comes very highly recommended, it's so good we came back again. Disney, Universal, International Drive and Shopping Outlets are all less than 10-15 mins away and a dip in the Hot Tub at the end of everyday is what dreams are made of.
The condo was very comfortable. Check in was super easy, and we enjoyed the pool across the way. The owner was accessible and easy to work with. I recommend!
We enjoyed our stay at Hugh and Lisa's condo at Vista Cay. Perfect location for visiting Universal, maybe a 10 minute drive, and also close to a lot of other attractions as well, the place being very close to I-4. It took us just a minute to hit the highway heading to Cocoa Beach which made for the perfect day trip, less than an hour away. The place was spotless. The beds were very comfortable. Really enjoyed the view from the balcony. And I liked that the condo was part of the Vista Cay community, where the staff was very nice and always helpful. This also makes checking in/out incredibly easy. Both pools were very nice. The grounds were well maintained. Nice that the grocery store was within walking distance, and well as a pretty good pizza place (NYPD Pizza). Glad we visited!
Good sized apartment, comfortable beds, well stocked with everything you need. Easy parking and very close to a Publix for groceries. Very easy to get a single bus from the airport for just a few dollars. A few minor irritations were that we had a kitchen leak on arrival (quickly rectified that evening) and the walls are on the thin side so light sleepers should not take the room adjacent to the kitchen.
This is a great central location between Disney, Seaworld and Universal Theme Parks, adjacent to International Drive and the 'Point of Orlando.' Stroll the Universal City Walk, Downtown Disney boardwalk with Cirque de Soleil, or enjoy live theatre. Just minutes away are shopping and nightlife. It's a short walk to Orlando Convention Center, but just a short 12 minute drive to the International Airport. Take an Everglades Boat Tour, visit Cape Canaveral or Cocoa Beach (1 hour drive).
