                        First of all, I have to say that David was fantastic to deal with. He was quick to respond, helpful with suggestions and tips - and had a good sense of humour. The condo is clean and comfortable, the front desk staff are friendly and responsive (they sent someone up within a couple of minutes for a minor issue that was resolved quickly), and the view of Lake Bryan and the pool is fabulous. We needed that after the winter we've been having! We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

                        My husband, son and I stayed for several beautiful days in this exceptional condo. Clean, well appointed and met every expectation! It is so nice to come back to a comfortable, "homey" spot after a day on the go! This condo is extremely conveniently located to anything you may want to do in the Orlando/ Parks area. Since my son has food allergies, we need a kitchen to prepare his meals - the kitchen was well appointed and had everything we needed and the grocery is close as well. Will definitely book here again and through this owner (who was a DELIGHT to work with) Thanks for a lovely time.

                        We stayed 17 nights here as we visited all Disney World, Seaworld, Universal Studios, Bush Gardens and the outlet malls had to offer. Location is great. Minutes to Disney, Seaworld, Universal, 3 outlet malls, Walmart, Target etc for supplies. The owner is fantastic replying within the day for even the smallest issue. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The suite is great very roomy for my wife, daughter and I. Having a kitchen and in room laundry was fantastic for a long stay. Pool and hottub are great as well as the small boardwalk to the lake. Can not say enough good things. We will be back on our next trip to Florida.

                        We had a wonderful family vacation and stayed at the Blue Heron for 9 nights. We have a family of 4 with 2 young children. The unit with bunk beds was perfect, it was greater ba having a full kitchen as well as a Jacuzzi tub in the master bath. The pool was wonderful, the view was breathtaking morning and night, and we enjoyed viewing the Disney World fireworks on several nights as well from the observation deck. We went to Disney World several days and also traveled one day to swim with the manatees in the Crystal River area, it was an easy 1 1/2 hr drive. Another day we traveled less than 2 hrs to get to a East coast beach. This location was perfect and so was the condo! It was a very short walk to Starbucks and a dollar store which we also frequented. The location couldn't be better. We can't wait to go back!

                        Our stay at Blue Heron was delightful. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well-equipped for light cooking. It also boasts beautiful views of the sunrise over the lake and an enormous pool with tiki bar, jacuzzi and boat deck. The staff was helpful and extremely friendly while the resort's proximity to Disney and other attractions was extremely convenient. All in all, great value for the money.

                        Junto a mi esposo y hijo hemos pasado unos días maravillosos en Blue Heron. El lugar contaba con todas las comodidades anunciadas, en perfectas condiciones, tal como se veía en las fotos. La atención del personal fue muy buena, cordial y servicial. Una muy buena ubicación, es un lugar para recomendar y yo realmente volvería, quedé maravillada.

                        My husband and I enjoyed our stay on the 14th floor of The Blue Heron. The sunrise was breathtaking and the unit clean and comfortable. We spent many hours enjoying the pool and walking the boardwalk around the lake. The owner was very helpful and friendly, answering all of the questions we had about the area. .There were places to eat and shop within walking distance so when traffic is bad you can leave the car and reach many places on foot. This was appreciated because the traffic was very heavy at times. You won't be disappointed if you chose the Blue Heron for your Disney vacation.

                        Owner response: Thanks! The sunrise and the moon rising over the lake are very enjoyable and I'm glad you made use of the pool. Being so close to Disneyworld is great and around dinner time at the busiest times of spring break it can be really busy on all roads leading in. I'm glad you made use of the 8-10 restaurants within easy walking distance of the resort. And as far as questions go, I really like them because sometimes I don't know the answer and that's when I learn something too. Take care, David

                        Owner response: Thank you for your review and thanks for the two thumbs up! I'm glad you had a great time and I'm sorry that the wi-fi was not working well at all while you were there. It had recently been installed just prior to the end of March, one of the busiest times of the year, and it became evident quickly that the broadband needed to be increased. That has been taken care of now. About the shuttle service: there are some glowing statements below from other guests' comments that did take the free shuttle service so no worries about not being able to comment on it. All the best. David

                        We recently just stayed at this condo at the Blue Heron resort and i have to say I was thoroughly impressed. The condo was very spacious and comfortable. The pool was nice and warm since when we were there the weather wasn't very warm. It was very nice to come back to the condo after spending all day at Disney and feel so at home. I would definately recommend this condo for anyone who is going to Disney, it is really close to the main entrance and there is everything you need all around you. I will definately stay there again next time I'm in Orlando.

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Our family has always loved Disney and travelling in general. We take the kids with us on our trips and try to mix up the 'adult' stuff with the 'kid' stuff so no one gets too bored. It's amazing how when we go to Disney and its surrounding parks no one is feeling hard done by.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Buena Vista:
                      It's a great location - 0.9 miles from Disneyworld. Amenities a block away. It's right between all the major entertainment areas with a beautiful view of the lake and nightly fireworks. We wanted a place we could go to and have fun at as well as invite friends and family to stay. Also, we wanted a place that had a free shuttle so if someone didn't bring a car that wouldn't be a problem.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Free scheduled shuttle service to the various parks. Free sunrise view of lake most every morning. Free balcony view of the Disneyworld fireworks every night. Best accessibility to all the parks with a lake front! Free wi-fi. Free covered parking to keep your car cool. 2 for 1 golf discount 50 feet away. Starbucks 100 yards away.
