Luxurious, Immaculate and Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been to Orlando many times and this is by far the best accomodations we have ever stayed in. It was absolutely delightful. The condo was spotless and had everything you could imagine. Kitchen was great and flatscreens an added bonus. Great views of the lake and fireworks form Sea World. The check-in and check out procedure was effortless. The property is very nice and the pool area was relaxing. You definitely need a car if staying here. The location was perfect. Only minutes to shopping, theme parks and great restaurants. Jami was very professional and helpful at all times, and we will only rent from her in our future stays in Orlando. Thank you.

Expected Condo Living - Somewhere between Hotel & Camping

  • 3 of 5

Pros - Spacious with most furniture along the lines of a Condo with the exception of the sagging couches. Great view out the back balcony. Quirky to get to, but good proximity to Universal. Quiet and peaceful.

Cons - It's not appropriately stocked in "live-in" fashion. I read the reviews ahead and thought folks were being petty about bath towels, paper products, and soap. We've stayed in a dozen VRBO places and this was by far the least accommodating. Two or three face cloths and five bath towels were sadly insufficient for four adults staying four nights. That combined with they weren't even nice and pretty towels and only ONE SAMPLE package of laundry soap! I paid well over the cost of a hotel where I could have had daily maid service and that's my error. The kitchen was not nicely equipped either. Silly example, zero hand towels but just one opened roll of paper towels hidden under the sink. There were two SAMPLES of dishwasher soap. We managed only because we were at Universal Parks all day, every day. But typically we get these places because we leave a crock pot on while we're gone and we dine in. That would not have been conducive in this place without taxiing over to the grocery store for soaps, supplies, etc. Normally the owners of these types leave notes to toss in a load of towels on your way out the door and ensure the dishwasher is running as you leave - - - and they furnish BOTTLES of soap. The trade off is that the housekeeper is there an hour less and they spent maybe two bucks on soap.

The place has potential. I think the only way for Jamie or management to clearly understand is to live in this place for a week and be honest and note what they bring, what they buy, and the hassles they endure. Then maybe the place will be "live-in" ready and worth the high cost. I would not stay again.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you were not happy during your stay. My greatest concern is for my renters to have a great stay in our condo. We have owned and managed this property for over 10 years. We are very proud of our rental and the reviews we have received. We have MORE reviews than most listed at Vista Cay on I am incredibly disappointed that you compare our lake view, penthouse condo to, "Camping." We believe this is an unfair statement, after reading what your disappointments are. When renters make their final payment, I send a very detailed welcome letter. This letter includes a list of specific "supplies provided." My cleaning company also sends a letter a couple days prior to arrival, again, with a supply list included. We do this so our guests have a clear understanding of what we provide and what they need to bring or may purchase from Publix or Walgreens, very close by. Below is the statement from my cleaning service. This is a self-concierge condo. That means that you are responsible for your own shopping during your stay. For your convenience we provide a complimentary supply of toiletries, including: 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom 1 bath soap per bathroom 1 conditioning shampoo per bathroom 1 hand lotion per bathroom 1 garbage bag per bin In the past, I made frequent trips to Sam's club to keep an abundance of "extra" supplies for my renters. As much as I wish I could continue to do this, I hate to say, I had problems with renters taking the "extra's" home with them. I just couldn't keep up and it became too expensive. I WISH I could continue to keep it fully stocked. As far as your statement regarding towels. I'm sorry you felt enough weren't provided. My cleaning company sent me pictures of all of the towels in the unit, the day you contacted me. Pictures were taken in each bathroom, closet and laundry room. The pictures showed me that more than ample towels were provided. She also left you with MORE so you would be happy. We informed you that the towels could be used at the swimming pool. Just to please bring them back. You were provided with plenty of towels, but doing laundry is reasonably expected if you wanted everyone in your party to have a fresh pool and bath towel every day of your stay. Again, I hate that you are were disappointed in your stay and compared it to "camping." I'm sorry you had a bad experience. This was not my intention.

Very nice condo and convenient to all the amusement parks

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed our stay. Condo was very nice and spacious. The pool area was huge and plenty for kids to do. With a family of five it was nice to have more than one bathroom and three bedrooms.

Homey, clean, private condo with nice view from the balcony.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 found this condo to be a great size for our family, and that it was stocked with all of the little things you take for granted in a kitchen and may have forgotten to pack.

The owner Jami made booking through check-out an easy seemless process, because all of the questions one would have about directions, codes, and what essentials would be provided by the owner were all explained in the welcome packet.

Unlike other places we've stayed in the Orlando area, parking was not tight and overcrowded. The atmosphere of the community during our stay was quiet without children running around -nothing against children, but many of the resorts in the area have children running all around, overcrowding the pool and etc.. I appreciated the adult feel, and that the condos seem to be insulated in terms of noise.

I travel with my own linen and towels, but Jami provided plenty and all was clean.

We appreciated that the condo was pet friendly. Only critiques would be to use light colored comforters because people like to be able to see the cleanliness of bed linens-although my daughter said that her colored comforter smelled clean. Also the leather furniture in the living room is well worn and probably needs replacement. However, we spent most of our time on the balcony or away from the condo so it didn't bother us. Finally, the living room carpet needs replacement, it had been freshened up for our arrival, but areas of spot cleaning could be seen.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and appreciated Jami the owner for remembering what so many who provide service do not; treat your customers well and they will return, tell others about you, and give you 5 stars.

Perfect! Better than described!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting through VRBO and I have to say I was a little nervous. Jami was so easy to be in touch with and responded quickly to my messages. She was very flexible about accepting different methods of payment and answered all of my questions readily. She was even willing to allow us to check in early.

The condo was beautiful. It was bigger than it appears in the photos. It was immaculate and tastefully decorated. The view from the balcony is stunning. The condo slept 7 adults comfortably. I would highly recommend this rental.

Adequate for Our Needs

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice time and the condo was adequate for our needs. The main photo is a little misleading. The photo shows a nice view of the lake; however, the view is really more of a construction site with the theme parks in the background. We were told in our welcome documents that the facility had a movie room and was well stocked with movies. When we asked about this, we were told that we had to bring our own movies. Also, the furniture in the living room is sagging and uncomfortable. One love seat was almost unusable. The unit was clean and neat and Jami was very nice to work with. Even though this is a very large complex, the unit felt quiet and secluded.

Owner's Response: Lee, We sincerely appreciate you choosing to stay with us. We KNOW you had so many vacation rentals to choose from! Your business is very important to us! I'm sorry that you were disappointed in the lake view. I hate that there is Construction in an area on the other side of the lake... Lots of new and exciting things are being developing in our area so that is beyond my control. I do hope my renters find it better than the parking lot view on the other side of the building. I was not informed that they took the video's out of the clubhouse. I apologize for the inconvenience and misinformation. I contacted them and they told me the Public Grocery store next door has Red Box videos that can be rented. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention so I can update the information for my future renters. I will have my management company look at the love seat. You are the first renter that has mentioned this to me. I will definitely address this. It's very important to me that my renters are comfortable. I am happy to hear that our property was clean and I was nice to work with. I will let my cleaning company know that they are doing a good job! I sincerely appreciate and value the opinions of my renters. My greatest goal is for those staying with me to have an enjoyable experience, this includes a clean and comfortable place to stay. THANK you for the information.
