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 including Disney, Universal and Seaworld, 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 'Disney Springs' 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

"We really want to thank you for offering such a good service in your apartment in Orlando. 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."

Cozy with views of the lake and convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice three-bedroom condo which was clean, tidy and had the essentials. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The condo unit is gated but the immediate area appeared safe and clean.

Went down to watch the Disney marathon but ended up doing Universal Parks. FYI- You can Uber for less than $10 each way as parking is 20. Then walking is less plus you don’t have to deal with the traffic which is thick at times.

We rented a car and took day trips to each coast without being in the car for a very long- both were less than two hours.

Clean and convenient stores and quick restaurants within walking distance. Hot tub and pool to relax in each night and finish with sitting on the balcony watching both sea world and Walt Disney World fireworks. Weather was nice enough that we had the sliding glass door open and it was great to have a nice breeze in January without freezing. Also the benefit of a kitchen and washer/dryer cannot be overstated.

Definitely will refer and stay again!

The location is amazing and close to all parks. Walk to Publix. Plenty of room. A hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Vista Cay resort for many years as it is conveniently located near the Disney Parks and Universal and Disney Springs. This particular apartment was the best we have stayed in! It had plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Being on the top floor was fantastic. Very clean and well maintained. The matresses and pillows are very comfortable which is not something that can be often said. The WiFi, TV and DVD player all worked great. The pool was great too. You can walk to Publix as well as several restaurants that are in the plaza including NYPD Pizza and DD. Several other restaurants and activities are just a short drive or Uber ride away. We also happened to see several fireworks displays from the balcony which was great. The owners, Hugh and Lisa, are very responsive. They accomodated us very quickly when we asked if we could add a day to our stay on very short notice. Overall, we were extremely happy with our stay in this apartment. I highly recommend you stay here when visiting the Orlanda area.

great location and everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is in a great location. Easy access to all of the Orlando attractions. The unit was clean and comfortable and had everything you need to feel right at home - away from home. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent overall experience!

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, quiet (except for some construction nearby) and offered many amenities including 2 pools, hot tubs, clubhouse with poolside bar and gift shop. It was super convenient to grocery and pharmacy. There were restaurants in walking distance. Great location for Disney and Universal. Only issue was housekeeping didn't provide us with enough washcloths or bathmats. Front desk was only partially helpful stating homeowners were responsible for linens provided. Small stuff. I would definitely recommend this rental to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, and we are pleased that you were happy with our home. There is construction on a roadway across the lake that will soon be completed, and hopefully that is far enough away that it will not be too bothersome. As for the linens and towels, the front desk has always provided extras on request in the past. Perhaps there was a new employee when you made your request, I can find out about this and correct the situation. We appreciate your time in completing the review.

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).
