Recent Orlando reviews

  • OC from michigan.

    "This place was fantastic, more then I expected. I now found my home away from home. I'm already in the planning stages for 2015. Stores and downtown Orlando within driving distance. After being with thousands of people in the tourist area it's great just to head back and know it's going to be quiet. The owner was great, every email answered in timely manner. Thanks May, you made my vacation that much better with this lovely house"

  • Home away from home

    "This house was beautiful!! Even better than the pictures! Felt like home away from home. Very clean and the decorations were just wonderful. The rooms were to die for and the living space upstairs was just the cherry on top. Our teens really enjoyed spending time up there after a long day at the parks. Loved the face that we didnt have to have keys to carry around! We will deff get this home for our next vacation."

  • Excellent Location and Condo!

    "First time to Orlando for my wife and I and our first time staying anywhere with a owner. Our stay at Blue Heron Resort was wonderful and Todd was extremely helpful and has a great place to stay at! Overlooking the pool and lake was peaceful and the location of this resort is perfect. Minutes away from Epcot, Downtown Disney, Disneyworld PLUS minutes from I-4 which will lead you to Tampa, downtown Orlando, etc. As far as food and drink - you name it and pretty much within 15 minute drive you can have it. Looking for a place to stay, relax and enjoy? Todd has the place! Looking forward to the return trip!"

  • Very comfortable, very helpful, loved it.

    "We were a party of 6 adults and 2 children staying during the 2nd week of July 2014. I must admit I was initially nervous booking a holiday home for the very first time until I spoke to Elizabeth over the phone. She was great! She answered all my questions and in fact I'd called about another property initially which was booked and she directed me to Spongebob when she found out that we planned to visit Busch Gardens. I rang her several times with many enquires until I finally made the booking. The house itself is as all the other reviews have said. The furniture is of the highest standard and very tasteful. All the rooms were great and plenty of space for us. The house is fully equipped with everything you'll need. We had a minor issue with the pool which the management company sorted out. It was reassuring that there was someone available if I needed anything and I knew I could always ring Elizabeth. The games room was a bit hot and the kitchen cupboards are slight dated compared to the rest of the house. But that's being picky, everything in the house was great, functioning and we loved it. The property is in a gated community with a guard 24/7 which was again reassuring. The community itself is very pretty and I enjoyed early morning runs. We really enjoyed the villa and will certainly book again for our next holiday."

Orlando Travel Tips

Orlando sits in central Florida, a not so far drive from either coast and surrounded by several beautiful lakes. Just a two-hour drive from Jacksonville and three hours from Miami, you can reach the ocean in about 50 minutes.

There are plenty of attractions to see and places to visit in Orlando, including the University of Central Florida, shopping and dining destinations and the Walt Disney World Resort just down the road in Lake Buena Vista.

Must-see attractions in Disney/Orlando

Walt Disney World Resort: There are four major theme parks, two water parks and a shopping, dining and entertainment district that comprise the resort. Of course, families and individuals alike enjoy the tradition of visiting Disney World, where they can see Cinderella’s castle, ride the traditional amusement park rides like the spinning teacups and walk down Main Street before taking in the nightly parade and show.

Universal Studios: People who want to take on the action-packed thrills of the resort can head to Universal Studios Florida to find rides based on their favorite movies such as Transformers: The Ride 3-D, The Incredible Hulk Coaster and The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man. Harry Potter fans will enjoy a replica of the magical world that caught their attention at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure. Universal Studios also boasts a nightclub and restaurant district, so adults can enjoy the pleasure of being surrounded by their favorite theme rides while dining and raising a glass with friends and family.

LEGOLAND Florida: What kid doesn't love LEGOS? At LEGOLAND Florida, your children and kids at heart can enjoy traversing a park that is solely dedicated to one of the world's favorite toys.

Water attractions: Guests can get a little wet and wild at SeaWorld, Discovery Cove and Aquatica. SeaWorld will give you the greatest show you’ve ever seen of your favorite marine animals, including dolphins and killer whales. If you make a trip to Discovery Cove, you’ll get the chance to jump in the water and go swimming with the dolphins.

Orlando Golf Courses: A trip to Florida wouldn’t be complete without spending a day on the green. There are several courses in Orlando to choose from, many of which offer specials, such as unlimited golf to visitors who stop by for a round. Two of the best courses in the city include Grand Cypress Golf Club’s North and Southeast. Since the weather in Orlando is perfect year-round, you’ll always want to make sure you have a pair of golfing shoes with you.

Orlando Spas: There’s more to Orlando than theme parks. There are also several spas where you’ll find relaxation and rejuvenation. Not only are there spa menus for the adults, but even the kids can get a massage or spa treatment to help them relax on their getaway.

Shopping and Dining in Disney and Orlando

Dining at Walt Disney World Resort: If you’re in the Disney Resort, you aren’t cut off from the shopping and dining world. If you want to celebrate Oktoberfest no matter what time of the year it is, Biergarten is the place for you. The beer flows freely and joyous memories are made as you drink like a German and spend time at the happiest place on Earth. In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can enjoy a dining experience similar to what you would have had growing up with the baby boomers at the 50s Prime Time Cafe. Foods of all varieties can be found at The Epcot Center, including Scandinavian, Eclectic, American and Seafood.

Outlet Malls: Travelers will be no strangers to bargains at the outlet and factory shopping centers in Orlando. There’s the Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive and Vineland Avenue as well as the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. Lake Buena Vista features stores like Carters, Eddie Bauer, Fossil, Tommy Hilfiger and Old Navy, where you can save as much as 75 percent off retail prices. The Premium Outlets on International Drive feature more than 200 premium shops such as Sperry, J. Crew, Kate Spade, Polo and Neiman Marcus. Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue is a great stop for those staying near Disney or SeaWorld because of its 150 tenants like Coach, Lacoste and even Disney outlets.
