The Blue Heron is a superb lake front resort, located a quarter mile off Exit 68 from I4, less than one mile from the Disney gates, three miles from Sea World, seven miles from Universal Studios and within 20 minutes of the Orlando Airport. There's even free shuttle service to the parks! Can't beat that!
Let's explore this "home away from home". Our condo is a spacious, professionally decorated 1BR/2BA home on the 6th floor of the resort. It sleeps six, with a king sized bed in the master bedroom, a queen size pullout couch in the living room and a large bunk area just off of the master bedroom.
Hey, what about the kitchen? This is everyone's favorite place to fix a quick bite to eat or hang out with family and friends! The large kitchen provides a dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, oven/range microwave, double sinks with a disposal, with beautiful granite counter tops throughout. The supermarket is adjacent to the resort for all your kitchen essentials or you can check out Walmart, 1 mile down the street. Just in case you need to wash or dry last minute towels or clothes the condo comes complete with a full-size washer and dryer.
The sleeping accommodations are terrific! The Master Suite provides a King-size bed, large closet, TV, DVD, music system, with a full bath including a whirlpool tub. This condo even provides bunk beds for two additional guests. There's a queen size sofa in the living room to meet all of your sleeping needs.
The living room is perfect for entertaining and enjoying the views! First, you have an entertainment center for all your indoor enjoyment. Second, the balcony is just off the living room and provides a beautiful view of Lake Byran, a spring-fed lake with over 900 feet of frontage. On top of that you will have a fabulous view of the nightly fireworks at the parks.
After a long day at the parks settle into the condo and enjoy a magnificent view from our 6th floor balcony overlooking the gorgeous free form swimming pool and beautiful 400 acre Lake Bryan. Our freshwater heated 6000 square foot lagoon-style pool includes a baby pool and hot tub. There's an additional pool and a lakefront tiki hut for snacks and drinks.
