THE RESORT:

The Blue Heron Beach Resort is a lakefront property featuring one- and two-bedroom condominium-style suites less than a mile from the entrance to Walt Disney World. We cater to families visiting Orlando for all it has to offer – the world-famous Theme Parks, great shopping, fine dining, excellent golf courses and other recreational and cultural amenities. Whether you venture off property to experience Orlando, or choose to stay at the resort for a day of relaxation by the pools enjoying food and beverage at our Tiki Bar, jet skiing, miniature golf, or working out in the fitness center, you’ll enjoy staying with us – your “home away from home”.

Our location is among the best of the Lake Buena Vista area, just Southwest of Orlando.

We are just one mile from the Lake Buena Vista entrance to Walt Disney World, four miles from the entrance to SeaWorld and eight miles to Universal Orlando. Close to all of the attractions and action of Lake Buena Vista and only a few minutes away from access to I-4.

Each fully furnished condo features a full kitchen, in suite laundry, and all the comforts of home as well as a unique extra set of bunk beds for the kids. In addition to these great accommodations, the resort is nestled on the shore of private Lake Bryan. This natural spring fed lake offers amenities such as water sports and a cool breeze in the summer in the midst of all of the attractions.

The high rise towers also give you a perfect view of the Disney fireworks from the observation platforms on every level or from private balcony in the Deluxe Family Suite. Make the Blue Heron Beach Resort your perfect vantage point for your next vacation and everything that Central Florida has to offer.

THE CONDO: Our One-Bedroom family suite can sleep a maximum of 6 people. With a well-designed floor plan for family living, our suite offers comfort and convenience with a Caribbean flair you can’t get in a hotel room. The master bedroom offers the comfort of a king-size bed and a full bathroom with a jetted tub. The unit offers a full kitchen, dining room, living room with a queen sized sofa sleeper, bunk beds uniquely located in the foyer, a second full bath,washer and dryer and a balcony that overlooks Lake Bryan. The living and dining rooms feature beautifully appointed furniture with an emphasis on luxury.

If you would like more information, please click on 'Email Owner' and I would be happy to provide more information and a quote of the rate for your stay including all fees and taxes, as well as my owners referral link for booking your stay online through our Resort's secure website which will provide you a discount of up to $35/night off the rates of booking directly through the resort. I check my emails through out the day and will respond at my earliest convenience.

**We share bookings with a group of owners - all the condos in this group are managed and furnished by the onsite management company so from the inside, all are basically identical. If you would like to make a request for floor height, as you are going through the booking process, watch for a line called special requests and click on yes - a box will open where you can type in your request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our trip was great! We absolutely loved Blue Heron! The group we went with stayed at the Disney All Star Music resort, paid about $100 more per night and were staying in rooms that were like a cheap motel! The view of the lake in the morning was beautiful, The Starbucks drive-thru in the parking lot was a fantastic surprise too! Everything was very clean. The security of needing a room key to operate the elevator was excellent. We felt safe, and like we had everything we needed. The staff was also very helpful. We are already planning on staying there again on our next trip back! Thank you so much!

Great Location - But Very Tired Property

  • 3 of 5

Stayed for 5 nights in a 1 bedroom condo & were very disappointed in the condition. Overall it was not very clean. The carpeting in the master bedroom had not been vacuumed and there was actual dirt on it, and it was very stained to begin with. The ice maker did not work & the silverware holder in the dishwasher was missing. The dinner plates didn't fit in the dishwasher which resulted in washing most things by hand. We had to ask for information on our own - there was no information sheet to tell you; where to dispose trash, how to get into the pool area, or the upper level of the garage or even what the housekeeping situation was. The pool is listed as heated but was very cold during our stay & was not clean. There were bits of trash all along the bottom and it was very stained. Having really looked forward to doing a lot of swimming we were very disappointed.

For a condo in such a terrific location in relation to Disney, it is unfortunate that it is not maintained in a better manner. Perhaps we stayed in a different unit than those with the great reviews!

No complaints!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Blue Heron was wonderful. We stayed for 5 nights and loved the convenience of a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms and the youngest guest really loved that top bunk! :) The door handle fell off on the inside right when we arrived, however it wasn't a safety issue and it was attended to almost immediately. Everything we needed or asked about was addressed right away and with a smile. The view was great as well as the pool area. Everything was kept very clean and we noticed that we heard NO outside noise from our room. The location is great! It's close to a Wal-Mart, Downtown Disney, Old Town and of course, Disney World. There is a small stripe mall right in front of the Blue Heron with a Subway and gift shop but sadly we didn't have enough time to get there. Point being though that there are plenty of places close to eat - including walking distance. We really have no reason not to give Blue Heron 5 stars other than we have stayed in fancier- however this did meet our expectations perfectly and we would stay there again. We were very happy with the price also. Maybe next time we will have time to play some miniature golf because that looked awesome too. Thank you!!

Comfortable, elegant, well-stocked

  • 5 of 5

What value for all this space! The condo is clean, attractively furnished, and supplied with everything you need from kitchen ware -- including paper towels, a mini dish soap and scrubber -- to bathroom toiletries. Lovely view over Lake Bryan. Be aware the master bedroom window doesn't open because it faces the outer walkway, but two ceiling fans keep the air moving and fresh and curtains make for privacy. The pools are well-maintained, though many chaises are on their last legs… Wifi being installed now in all the apartments will be an important plus for us. We would definitely recommend!

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

This property was everything that we wanted. Took only 5 minutes to get to Disney World, an hour to get to Cocoa Beach, and the Starbucks in front of the towers made my husband one happy camper! The pool was really nice too! We will stay her again when we plan trips to Disney! The staff was nice as well. The only complaint I would have is my trip wasn't long enough!!
