About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Indulge yourself with spacious luxury accommodations at Vista Cay's The Isles, the 5-Star vacation community in the heart of Orlando's entertainment area. Vista Cay's lovely Tuscan-themed condominium apartments overlook beautiful Lake Cay, so guests may enjoy the sunset over the lake and view Seaworld fireworks from their private Lanai (balcony). An upscale kitchen features Italian tile, crowned cabinets, corian counters and all conveniences. Wireless internet, free US/Canada phone,42' plasma screen, and TV/DVD in each bedroom are among the amenities you will enjoy. The clubhouse includes a concierge, fitness and convenience store. Centrally located within the City of Orlando on Universal Boulevard (not remote in Kissimmee or Davenport), the location is ideal for visits to all 3 Theme Park areas, yet just 12 convenient minutes from the airport. In addition to the 5 Disney parks just 6 miles away, Seaworld is within view on Int'l Drive, and Universal Studios, Harry Potter's Wizarding World just 3 miles

Guests have described their stay at this property as surprisingly spacious, and nicely appointed. The Isles at Vista Cay location is perfect for all the many attractions available in the Orlando area. In contrast to Davenport or Kissimmee, the central location minimizes your time spent in traffic on the Interstate Freeways. Dozens of restaurants are found on nearby International Drive and W. Sand Lake Road, or cook in your own villa with the fully equipped kitchen. The two resort pools are uncrowded unlike local hotels, and one is located directly in front of the building. The main clubhouse has all the amenities including a business centre, concierge, and sports court. Meeting rooms are available and can be scheduled for private events or business groups.

Two enormous and glamorous shopping malls are within a five mile drive, the 'Florida Mall,' or the 'Mall at Millenia.' Alternatively, the two nearby Designer Outlet Malls are found on International Drive. Alternatively, view the exotic headwaters of the Everglades in a Fan-powered boat, or visit the world-renowned 'Gatorland' park and preserve. You could get even closer to nature with a canoe rental at Wekiva State Park, with all Florida wildlife including the giant Manatees in winter. An evening stroll at exciting 'Downtown Disney' boardwalk or 'Universal Citywalk' will feature local nightlife and music, as well as famous restaurants and entertainment such as the Blue Man Group, or the Cirque de Soleil. There is much to entertain the visitor in this tropical vacation paradise.

About Hugh or Lisa MacIsaac

We are a family of four that loves to get away on vacation. Our favorite destinations are California, Europe and of course Florida. We have relatives in four countries, and try to encourage family and friends to join us on trips whenever possible. The vacation homes with extra bedrooms and a large kitchen allow us to enjoy quality vacation time with everyone under the same roof. We typically enjoy big family meals, and games afterwards.

We can't wait to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter which opens in the Spring of 2010!!

Why Hugh or Lisa MacIsaac chose Orlando

Orlando, Florida allows so many types of vacations. Vista Cay is situated so close to everything, but is quiet, uncrowded and luxurious. The pool and clubhouse are always never full, and the staff friendly and courteous. Great shopping is nearby including Outlet Malls, restaurants are all around, and there are so many entertainment options. The resort is between the Disney Parks, and Universal Studios, close to Sea World, and all are a short drive. You will not waste your vacation time in traffic. We chose to own here for all those reasons, and because it is so easy to Fly into Orlando, with direct flights from everywhere. It's a great escape from winter in New York, and sometimes the OC Convention Center next door has a business conference I can attend.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is not only perfectly equipped with anything required but also comfortable and with a great taste in the decoration details! We have enjoyed every day of the week we stayed there and we really want you to know it to keep on with this quality of service."

Amazing Penthouse apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment with plenty of space and everything thing you need. Nice location on universal boulevard which makes for a very quiet night rather than being on the busy I drive. Publix is a 2 minute walk away. View from the balcony of the lake was lovely on a morning with your breakfast and on an evening watching the sunset then later the fireworks at Disney. The owner was very efficient with our booking. Can’t wait to return.

Doesn't get any better. Super comfortable beds and furniture.

Perfect Location. $7 or $8 UBER one way to Universal. Beats paying $20 per day for Universals parking lot. And Uber drops you off at the Universal entrance.

Beautiful Shopping Plaza just outside the gate, that you won't even notice is there. Don't underestimate the value of having a Publix grocery store about 100 yards away. Awesome pool by the way. So very quiet and hardly saw any people. Stayed 5/13-5/20 2017

Lovely apartment in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in the best location to get everywhere 10 mins to Disney and 5 mins to universal or sea world. Supermarket and lovely Chinese takeaway and burger bar on your doorstep. The apartment itself is stunning well kept and lovely decorated lots of space for all. Well equipped kitchen and stunning views over the lake. The pool is just behind the block with jacuzzi and was nice and quiet, not the main pool so no bar but was perfect for us. Great people to deal with and just added to our amazing holiday thank u so much 😁

Excellent clean and well maintained unit.

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 recently stayed at this condo from December 26 - January 5th and had a wonderful time. The size of the unit especially for the price was excellent. We have stayed in other smaller units for more money in the past. We were also joined by my inlaws for a few days and still found the unit spacious enough.

I was a bit worried about check in at the main clubhouse as past condo rentals have turned check in into a timeshare pitch but this was not the case. Check in was fast and effortless.

One of the best things about this unit is the location. The building location is perfect; slightly away from the main clubhouse area making it quieter and more relaxed, a short walk to the pool/hot tub area and BBQ pits and an excellent view of the lake from the balcony. The publix supermarket a short walk away is also perfect for stocking up the unit with food.

We visited the Disney parks during our stay which are a short 15 minute drive if you don't get stuck in the horrific Orlando traffic.

Upon arrival we found the unit very clean and well stocked with necessities. We had no issues with the internet even with two Ipad obsessed kids using it at the same time. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable.

We only encountered a few minor issues. The tv service was intermittent and didn't work much of the time. I followed the troubleshooting provided and even had the front desk come up to assist but this didn't really help. It wasn't a big deal as we were out and about most of the time anyways. I was happy to see a water filter in the fridge but could not get the water to dispense. The unit kept making ice all week but no water. The dishwasher also didn't seem to work very well so we washed dishes by hand for the week. The decor of the unit could use some updating as the couches in the main room are literally falling apart but none of these issues would keep me from returning.

The outdoor grounds and pool area were very well maintained and we enjoyed them greatly. I observed maintenance people cleaning and keeping up the property contstantly. In the past I've rented condos with "heated" pools that leave the lips blue and the teeth chattering. This pool was the perfect temperature and we never had an issue securing chairs no matter what time of day we headed for a swim (also a rarity with our past rentals).

Overall this unit was excellent and I will certainly recommend to friends and family and book again myself in the future.

Owner's Response: This guest is correct about the sofa's, the next person in there sent me photos, and the leather is worn out. I bought new ones today, high quality leather, delivery will be in the next few weeks. As for the TV issue I will look into that, I pay a monthly cable internet service of about $100 so I have to see what the problem might be.

Car: recommended

This is a great central location between Disney, Seaworld and Universal Theme Parks, adjacent to International Drive and the 'Point of Orlando.' Stroll the Universal City Walk, Downtown Disney boardwalk with Cirque de Soleil, or enjoy live theatre. Just minutes away are shopping and nightlife. It's a short walk to Orlando Convention Center, but just a short 12 minute drive to the International Airport. Take an Everglades Boat Tour, visit Cape Canaveral or Cocoa Beach (1 hour drive).
