Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: My family and I live in Toronto and decided to purchase a property in Florida, now that we come down here a few times each year (to get away from the winter!)
Why the Owner Chose Orlando: We had been looking for a place in Florida for a while and came across the Blue Heron. After staying here as a guest, we knew this would be perfect for our family to stay for our Disney vacations and we knew we would be very comfortable renting out a high quality unit to others.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: It's so big compared to the hotels we've stayed in before - the kids love their own space! And the views are amazing, the facilities, and the whole area - everything is so close!
