Why Jai chose Disney / Orlando

My family visited this resort in May 2011 and fell in love with it. We decided to buy a 2 bedroom unit so that we can visit it every year and rent it out the rest of the year.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is very close to disney and offer fantastic views of the lake from 2 balconies accessible through living room and master bedroom. I love to have my morning coffee and also enjoy unwinding in the evening looking at the lake.

New Years Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a great location with a beautiful view of a lake. We enjoyed amazing sunrise every morning on the east balcony and fireworks at night on the west balcony. When I opened the door to our unit I was very pleased and proud of my finding. The unit was impeccable. We had enough linens and towels. Kitchen had all the basics. Internet is fast. Percy, the manager was very accommodating and pleasant to work with. Traffic can get heavy near the entrance/exit to the building but never was a problem, it's actually good because it stops and makes it easier to get in and out. Use your GPS to find best routes. Plenty of covered free parking. The place has all the convinces of a resort. If you are missing anything you can get it without going too far. You can buy attraction tickets at park prices plus a convenience fee at concierge. There's another person next to concierge offering discounted tickets to parks in exchange for a 90 minute presentation in a different location. This lady was not upfront telling us about it. We bought our tickets online from our unit. When checking in you will be asked to initial and sign your contract. Read it before you sign. One of the lines says that you give permission to Blue Heron to send you advertisement via emai, phone or text. This has nothing to do with Percy or the unit and we are suppose to read before we sign anyway. We had a very pleasant, fun and relaxing time. I will definitely stay here again.

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our weeklong stay. Staff was great - very helpful and had good recommendations on activities and dining. Our room was clean and had a great view of the lake. The kids really liked their bunk bed nook and the pool. We did not use the shuttles, but they are offered.

Very spacious! Great location.

  • 4 of 5

The unit that we rented is NOT the unit represented in these pictures. I believe this is because several of the condos are managed by the same company.

Our unit was on the 4th floor. We brought our 2 girls (age 18 & 9) It was very spacious for the 4 of us. The unit can easily sleep 8 comfortably. Unlike previous vrbo rentals, this was very much like a hotel rental, meaning there were no extras in the kitchen for example. There is a Dollar Tree store within close walking distance that we visited a few times. The kitchen is also very spacious with lots of cabinet and counter space. The washer/dryer was nice, especially considering the crazy heat/humidity.

The resort is surrounded with great shopping and dining and also close to Disney and Seaworld.

The pool is huge with lots of seating and tables. Since we were only 4 floors up, we could hear the pool activity a bit but it was not a problem. The staff promptly closes the pool at 11 pm every night.

There were a few things that could be improved.

The master bathroom needs to be updated. The sink is a small pedestal with just a sink. There is no counter space at all in the bathroom. There is a table frame that likely had a round glass top but it was missing. There was a noticeable musty smell that seems to be related to an old floor. It's large in size but an update is needed. A few changes would make a big difference. The other bathroom was very nice and spacious.

There are no beach towels in the unit. There was a stack of extra bath towels on the bunk beds but they definitely aren't beach or pool towels. All of the towels in the unit could be replaced.

I would make sure that you are seeing pictures of the unit you are renting.

Owner's Response: Melanie Thank you for taking the time to review the property. You are absolutely right that I do offer more than one unit but I cater to your request about a Deluxe unit. I am an owner myself and do offer other owners unit when my unit is full. You were absolutely ok with that and even reviewed the pictures. I am surprised to see your negative comment about it. The kitchen is fully equipped so dont understand your concern there. You are right we run it like a hotel and pay the management company to take care of our guest. I checked with the reception and there has been no request for either extra towels or kitchen complains so dont understand a negative review on that point. The only reason I can think of where I was not able to cater to you was to let your teenage daughter check in before you. Our rules are any person checkin in has to be atleast 21. I feel this has costed me a negative review as I think you were really unhappy about the same. I can assure you that we do take care of all guest and make sure all their needs are properly met. We pay our management company a sizeable amount to make sure they are there 24 hours for the guest. We are definitely different from other VRBO listing that just give you the keys and disappear. Thanks Percy

1st family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. The renter and employees were super nice and extremely helpful. The rooms are clean and the view of the lake is beautiful. It's conveniently located only minutes away from the Disney and many other parks as well as an outlet mall and many restaurants. I would recommend the Blue to Heron to anyone and I myself an looking forward to future visits!!!
