About The Owner

We're a family of 6 with 4 young children so it's anyone's guess why we chose Orlando as our second home. We reside in southern Ontario and try as much as possible to travel to our condo whenever the children are on school holidays. Our penthouse is also our vacation home and we take great pride in sharing it with our guests.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Orlando

We always knew that Florida would be a place to have our second home, especially considering that we reside in the cold north. This is a place we want to travel to during our winter months when we finally retire and as well a place where our children and theirs could enjoy their vacations at. Besides that, we are only a couple of hours away by air from Buffalo so this was another plus in choosing Orlando. We chose Vista Cay in Orlando because it's central to everything we would ever need. We're an hour from the beaches and being centrally located, we can travel to any destination we want to in Orlando.

What makes this condo unique

Vista Cay is an upscale resort. Their standards are very high and their grounds are always immaculate. We love the fact that it's also a gated community thus giving you a sense of security. I love the lake and the view from our condo. We always wanted a view of the water at our second home and the lake is a welcome sight. At night, we can also view the fireworks from SeaWorld on our balcony. Our children enjoy the heated pool when we return from a long day out at the parks or they can watch a movie in the theatre room or play at any of the games table. There is so much to do at the resort that you don't even need to step out of the site at all.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I rented this condo for our family vacation to the Orlando area. With us, stayed 5 of our children and our son-in-law. This home looked wonderful on line so we were excited to see it in person. We were not disappointed in the least! Beside being plenty of room to be comfortable, it is so beautifully decorated. It is well stocked with anything one might need in the kitchen. It is well maintained and managed. The ease of entering the securely gated property as well as the unit itself was a breeze with the detailed instructions provided before we arrived. We liked seeing security patrolling the property day and night. We also appreciated the in-room safe which we used each day. The unit itself is a fourth floor corner unit. It receives wonderful sunlight from two sides. Each evening we had a breathtaking view of the beautiful sunset. As other guests have mentioned there is a wonderful balcony on which to sit that overlooks the water. It is so peaceful to just be still there and watch the birds.

The complex is wonderfully maintained. Each day we would exit our unit to go on our way down the freshly cleaned corridor/elevator. Everything was spotless and fresh smelling. We enjoyed the pool/hot tub area many times. The pool was warm and the pool area was very well maintained. Cleaning people were quietly wiping down each chaise lounge and keeping watch on the cleanliness of the restrooms.

We had no issues, only wonderful compliments regarding staying here and look forward to our next stay! You won't be disappointed.

GREAAT VACATION !

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to be on vacation because it felt like being at home back in Canada. It was very comforting and a great place to relax when going on vacation. Usually when i travel or go on vacations we are always rushing and running around but we never wanted to leave Florida! It is a definetly dream place to stay at since the view is incredible right over Disney World watching the fireworks every night with your family is a very good time to spend together. The condo was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The facilities were very useful and worth using. The 6 days that we were there was a very relaxing stay. It was a very memorable trip that i will never forget. If i had to go on vacation and stay here again i definitely would go back to the same place.

Superb Condo

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this condo in October 2011 with my family. We loved the space in the condo, the luxurious feel to it. The balcony was great for sitting out at any time of the day to enjoy the sun with views over the lake. There is a path which stretches around the lake but unfortunately doesn't meet in the middle although you can still get to the other path through some grass. Good for jogging round. The resort has a nice feel to it with local restaurants delivering no problem. The publix is very close and has a blockbuster vending machine too. Great central location to stay and fabulous accommodation to relax in.
