What Past Guests Are Saying
Grand Rapids, MI
Beautiful condo close to Disney!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Heron. Check in was quick and the staff friendly. The condo was roomy and very clean. It was wonderful having 2 bathrooms! The best feature was the beautiful view of the lake and pool area. I would definitely rent here again.
Very nice place to stay
The view was great and the condo was clean.It is a great location to everything I would definitely stay again.
just as it was described!
Everything was just as it was described and we were quite content. The view was lovely and the place was clean. I appreciated the mattress topper - saved my back!We will for sure stay again:-)
Home away from home
My husband and I were fortunate to stumble across this gem of a place that has everything we were looking for. We were in Orlando to run the Disney Wine and Dine half Marathon. Knowing we wanted the convenience of home (kitchen to prepare our own meals, fridge for those wonderful take home boxes from the many food options in the area, washer/dryer was a total bonus) with the amenities of a hotel (pool w/ nightly cabana drinks and snacks, gym, game room) all for a reasonable price seemed like a tall order till we found this condo at Blue Heron. The condo was beautifully laid out with a great view of the lake and pool. The furnishings are stylish and up to date and the kitchen was stocked with all necessary cooking utensils and dish sets.
The condo has plenty of sleeping for 1 person or a family of 4. There is a nice size bunk bed perfectly nestled in an alcove in the hallway. It's perfect for the kids or let's be honest...the kid in all of us!
You really can't beat the location. Less than 2 miles from Disney World and not much more to the other Disney parks makes this place a perfect vacation spot especially when Disney resorts are 4x the price you would pay here. And the condo offers shuttle services to and from the park for no additional fee.
If you need a Disney break there is still plenty to do into the area (Pirates Cove miniature golf course is a must!!). The condo is so conveniently located near shopping, pharmacies, grocery stores, restaurants, etc. All walkable or a quick jump in the car whatever you prefer. The biggest decision in the morning was Dunkin Donuts coffee to our left or Starbucks to our right. It really is a home away from home.
We will definitely be back!
Wonderful location, service, and value!
We have stayed in these condos twice this year, and loved both stays. The owner responded to our booking inquiries within a few hours each time and has been great about addressing any questions. The staff was friendly and helpful, from the front desk staff to the maintenance people. When I called before our stay about a delivery I was ordering from Whole Foods, the front desk went above and beyond, offering that if I had groceries delivered after check-in time but before our evening arrival, they would walk the delivery person to our room so our fridge could be stocked with food before we arrived.
The memory foam topper that the owner added makes the master bed wonderfully comfortable. (We have heard the mattresses at Blue Heron in general are sometimes uncomfortable, so this memory foam topper is our favorite feature!) We also enjoyed having garage parking directly beneath the building and connected to the same elevators (which require room keys for access), so we could get between our room and our car in 1-3 minutes. (Our drives from parking spaces at Disney and Universal parks back to a parking space at the Blue Heron took only 14-16 minutes, so the trip from door to door was very convenient!) This has become our favorite place to stay, and I consider it a wonderful value. We have recommended this to all our friends and family, and are already looking forward to planning our next trip!
Rio de Janeiro
Very pleasant stay!
The apartment was fully equipped, very clean, spacious and very well maintained. The views are breathtaking. I stayed on the 9th floor with very beautiful sunrises, sunsets and Disney fireworks. The location is perfect, because the resort is very close to all the major Orlando restaurants and attractions. The staff is very friendly too. I'll certainly stay at Blue Heron again!
Great location for Disney
If you would like to visit the theme parks in Orlando, this would be a good base to start from. Smooth and friendly check-in and check-out. Good location with many stores and an outlet mall close by. Apartment has everything you need. fully-equipped kitchen (incl. dish washer, blender, washing-machine and dryer). Premises very clean, saw cleaning staff at different times during the day. Free parking is a big plus! Did not use the free shuttle services to Disney. We loved the view from our ninth-floor balcony over the lake and beyond.
Attention: the bedroom's window goes out to the hallway. This means that you can't have the curtains open and that the lights can be very bothersome as they are not switched off at night! But after a long exhausting day out in the theme parks that shouldn't be such a big problem.
We absolutley loved this condo and the location. Disney is just a few short minutes away and you are very central to many other activities, restaurants, etc. The condo itself is extremely clean and well furnished. We are a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids under age 12) and the condo was adequate space. The pool is gorgeous . . . our kids loved it and the view is breathtaking in the mornings and evenings looking out over the lake. It was very relaxing . . . one of the best condos we have stayed in. Check in - check out was very easy; the owner was easy to work with, and everything was as it was suppossed to be. My only negatiave comment would be the bathtub in the master bedroom is a jaccuzi style tub & shower - which is fine - but it is hard to get in and out of to take a shower the sides are very tall and you must be careful not to fall!
My wife, my teenage daughter, and I recently stayed and our experience was great! We enjoyed the room. It was very clean and comfortable. We found it to be every bit as good as advertised.
Super Nice Condo/Great Location/Great Value!
Very well-kept condo, comfortable and with the wi-fi, we were able to keep in touch with work while on vacation. Excellent location, very close to everything - beautiful pool (huge) and convenient covered parking near the building. Nicely furnished and management here is very accommodating and helpful. Owner was very responsive and great to deal with in setting up the reservation for us.
Will stay here again
This condo is very nice and so conveniently located. It has recently been remodeled. Shshank was very easy to work with and replied to my emails promptly. Great place to stay!
better than at home...
The apartment was clean and spacious. Even my doughter had a Bathroom just for herself. The Kitchen was equipped with everything you can need (apart from a baking tray, as we wanted to eat some french fries). The View to the Lake Brian was Exellent! We had a washing machine and a dryer that was great, but you also need some stuff to keep the flat clean (there was just a broom). The stuff in charge for the Blue Heron Building was really really lovely! We are going to come back again! Thanks a lot! We had great time!
Centrally located from all Orlando Theme Parks
Can't say enough good things about Blue Heron resort. Our family had a great time. Condo is located 3 miles from Disney and 7 miles from Universal. Very clean, roomy with great view overlooking Lake Bryan. Staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!!
We really enjoyed our stay in this property! Everything was exactly as described in the condo and facilities. Our two kids were excited about sleeping in the bunk beds and took turn to sleep on the top. The view was great, facing the lake and the pool side. We were happy to have such a nice place with everything that we needed for the vacation. The condo also was in a great location, 15 minutes driving to Magic Kingdom and Epcot. A small issue was the wifi connection seems not too strong while we were in the condo. But overall we have a good time in Blue Heron. Thanks Mr. Jain for your quick response and attention to my follow-up questions! We'll be back! And we've already recommended you to our friends and family!
We really enjoyed our stay in this property! Everything was exactly as described in the condo and facilities.

Who can beat that? Thanks Mr. Jain for your quick response and attention to my follow-up questions! We'll be back! And we've already recommended you to our family.
We are having a great time here since I am writing this review while we are still here.its more than described in photos .the view is amazing and the location is more than perfect and the price I personaly consider it cheap.clean & comfortable. Kids won't go out off pool, my wife for the 1st time doesn't want to go shoping that much since she is relaxing all day long between balcony and the pool.l would stay here every time I come to orlando and its worth it.
St. Albert, Alberta, Canada
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. The grounds and the pool were lovely and clean, as was the condo. The view from the patio was outstanding. Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short because of a family emergency and the front desk staff were extremely understanding when we explained our situation and cancelled the rest of our reservation without penalty. We found the front staff always very helpful and friendly. We were a little further away from Universal and Disney World than we had anticipated but it was a very quiet area which we appreciated.
Clean, Convenient, and Relaxing
This was my family's first trip to Orlando. The location and amenities were perfect for us. We visited right before the start of the peak season (May) so the rate was excellent considering the close location to the Disney World which my kids loved.
This place was so wonderful! Everything was exactly as quoted me by the owner and we had absolutely no problem checking in. The apartment was so clean and elegant with such a great view. I can't stand to go in to a place my family is going to be sleeping and have it not be clean. This condo was thoroughly cleaned from sheets and towels to the floors and fridge.
The bunk bed was a big hit with my 11 year old and the fully equipped kitchen really helped us save money because we didn't have to eat out every meal. My crowd just wanted to get take out every night because they loved hanging out at the condo so much. The master bed was so comfortable I had to be bribed to get up every morning! The pool was clean and beautiful. Definitely want to go back.
Also, owner was so great to deal with. Promptly responded to all my questions and provided everything as promised. Price was super deal for a luxury condo.
Could not be a better location. Took us 10 minutes to get to animal Kingdom. Location is 5 minutes or less to grocery stores and restaurants.
Thank you for making this stay so easy!!!
I rented this unit for my Navy daughter and son-in-law at the last minute. Your quick reply, flexibility, ease of payment, ease of check-in made this arrangement so incredibly hassle-free. They loved the condo, had a wonderful time and appreciated the front desk help. My daughter specifically commented on the cleanliness and coziness of the condo. Thank you, Shshank for making it so easy to treat them to a couple nights in Orlando!
Excellent stay in very nice accommodation
We only stayed for 2 nights to do some shopping before going on the Clearwater. The check in was very fast and friendly and the apartment was very clean and well equipped -there was even a proper kettle for us Brits and our tea making!!
Good communication with the owner and the resort itself.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again

Long Reach, NB
The Staff,exceptional,right from Check in to Check out. We were worried we wouldn't get a lounger at the pool, but there was always plenty. The condo was very clean, and supplies (soap, shampoo, dish detergent, clothes detergent for 1 wash) were included so you didn't have to worry about getting to Wal-Mart, 5 minutes away by car or Walgreens (across the road) right away. Lots of restaurants walking distance, including Starbucks,Dunkin Donuts and Wendy's. 1 minute walk to Miniature Golf. Beautiful view from the balcony and entrance. 3 Elevators so you never had to wait, even on the higher floors. Plenty of parking inside and out. Shshank was excellent to deal with, answering my questions right away. Didn't have to pay until arrival, so didn't have to worry about sending money by mail or paypal. Easy to get out of Resort to main road. What I liked best was the comfy bed and Jacuzzi tub, least was since it was a high-rise we lost the sun at the pool around 5 and we love the sun. Our trip was not for Disney but just a getaway for shopping, eating, relaxing and sun. So we were all about the resort and condo. Would highly recommend this resort and dealing with Shshank.
Amazing experience with friendly staff
The room was very clean with a beautiful view of the lake and pool. Our 10 day stay at the 14th floor made it even more beautiful. Early morning sip of coffee, overlooking the lake added one special touch to my vacation. The staff was was very good/understanding to our requests:they allowed for an early 11am check-in and also a late 2PM check-out. In -house laundry and kitchen just added to the value of our stay...My husband and I loved every bit of it, and the kids loved the pool.
Condo was huge and well kept. We had plenty of space, great views, and everything was as advertised. It was perfect location for going to Downtown Disney, Magic Kingdom, Cirque de Soleil, etc. Owner was extremely responsive and gave us recommendations for everything. I would definitely stay here again.
My family stayed at this condo while in town for a cheer competition and it was perfect! Very clean and nicely maintained, my husbands only complaint was he wished there were flat screen hd Tvs. The location is great!!! We will stay again! Planning to for next years competition! Thank you!
Sick of Snow
This condo was perfect. Decorated tastefully, had two full washrooms. Loved the location, close to Disney, Holy Land, and two Premium shopping destinations. Pool and surrounding area was perfect. I even used the on-site work out area. The only thing I would recommend is that the carpeting be changed in the master bedroom. Had a great stay - would definatley go back.
Coral Gables Florida
Love everything this rental has to offer!
Location, amenities are hard to beat. The condo is spacious, clean and inviting. This is my second time staying in the particular condo. Mr. Jain is a pleasure to deal with, always responding in a timely manner. Will definitely return!
Downers Grove, IL
Very pleased with our stay
My wife and I stayed in a one-bedroom unit in March 2013. We were very pleased with our stay. The unit had a great layout. It was very clean and well-appointed. We had two minor maintenance issues, but we just called down to the front desk and they were promptly fixed. The location is great. Right near Downtown Disney and close to the other Disney Parks and Universal. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. A nice pool and hot tub layout, but we only used the hot tub once due to an unseasonable cold snap. We would definitely stay again on a return trip to Orlando.
This condo is perfect for an Orlando vacation whether you're going to Disney, Universal, Sea World or just want to stay in and relax by the pool. In fact, I love it so much that I have stayed in one of Shshank's condo's for the third year in a row. It is so much nicer and cozier than a hotel. The view from your balcony is amazing and beautiful, I could sit there for hours just staring at Lake Byron surrounded by the Spanish Moss covered oaks. The kitchen is great and we save lots of money by making our own breakfast and late night snacks. It's very close and convenient to everything you might need. The ladies at the front desk are very friendly and helpful and the free shuttle to Disney and Sea World is a plus. I could go on and on... I would definitely recommend to to anyone.
The condo was very clean and very pleasant. The staff was helpful and it is perfect for a Disney World vacation. I highly recommend.
Nova Scotia Canada
My husband and 2 daughters spent 3 days at this resort and enjoyed our stay very much. The condo was equipped with dishwasher/dryer/washer and 2 full baths, big bed and bunk beds and fold out sofa. The pool was lovely. The staff at the front desk very good and when I requested a room higher up with a view of the pool and the lake, they were able to grant my request. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. The traffic is very heavy in this area but Orlando in March gets lots of tourists so it was understandable.
spring break 2013
The condo was very clean and a great view!!! We could not believe the location, within 10 minutes of Disney! The kitchen was stocked well, and we picked up groceries at a nearby Walmart. The only suggestion I would make is to update the blankets. Although the sheets and towels were crisp and clean, the blankets available were less than desirable. Overall, would definitely come back.
Great family vacation!
We stayed in this condo for a week while visiting the Orlando area theme parks. It was clean and very spacious! We had plenty of room for all four of us. The two bathrooms came in handy when getting ready in the mornings before heading to Disney and Universal. We also enjoyed the pool on a couple occasions. The pool side bar was an added benefit :)
Excellent value for quality accomodations!
This was a super nice condo conveniently located near Disney and Universal in what was really an ideal location. The rear of the condo overlooked a gorgeous lake that made you forget you were in the heart of Orlando across the street from a Walgreen's and Chick fil a. This unit was very well done and nicely decorated. The two bathrooms were very spacious. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. There was always parking available even though they were sold out. You had to have your room key to use the elevator, which just made us feel extra safe. I'm so happy I found this resort/condo.
Nova Scotia, Canada
Enjoyed our stay very much; the condo was nice and roomy for 4 of us. It was wonderful having the dishwasher, washer/dryer and the 2 full baths a bonus! The pool was lovely. The only drawback was the traffic, pulling in and out of the building onto the busy streets, but I assume that traffic is always a little crazy in Orlando especially in March. There were plenty of restaurants within walking distance which we enjoyed. We asked for a room higher up and we got one with a lovely view of the pool and Lake Buena Vista. Would definitely come back here again!
Great place to stay in Orlando!
I was pleasantly surprised how nice this property was. The pool was great. It is right on the lake so there was a beautiful view of that. The condo was very clean and spacious. We had a one bedroom with 2 baths which was nice because we have 2 kids. Great to have the kitchen too.
Great accomodations and a Great Location
My family of four stayed here for a little over a week and we had a great time. Any questions I had about the unit was quickly answered by Shshank and the check-in staff were friendly as well.
Pool area is very nice and the lake is great too. You can even rent jet-ski's and have them delivered to the dock next to the pool.
Great value and will definitely stay here again!
Great Condo!! Great Location!!
Decided to stay at this condo for a quick weekend getaway in Orlando. Nice place with some good amenities. We decided to stay here as it's very close to the parks and some great dinning locations. Condo is on the 1st floor above the parking garages, close to elevator so at times a bit noisy but if you don't plan on staying inside all day this isn't an issue. I would stay here again for our next weekend trip to Orlando.
Perfect Place to Stay
This condo is perfect for a small family. Location is great for visiting Disney. Traffic on road in front of hotel is really bad, but there is a back way to get to all the Disney parks that will take you maybe 5 minutes to get there. Resort was very nice. Pool was cleaned every morning. Get down there early to get a lounge chair as they go fast. Condo unit itself had everything we needed. Coffee pot was broken, we contacted the front desk and they replaced it immediately. Bedroom carpet had a bit to be desired and needed a good cleaning (or replaced) but besides that all was perfect. Highly recommend this unit for your stay.
Great Experience and Rock-star!!
Outstanding ! Place was very well kept and clean. Prices were reasonable.Free WiFi, View were fab, very comfortable place.I would defiantly stay here again and recommend to others too. Lots of great eating place around. We even bough Ponchu for Universal Wet Rides from nearby Dollar Store Ha ha !!! I am looking forward to visiting Florida again and would rent this condo again. I was with 2 kids and they loved the bunker bed :). I was able to cook kids warm milk as kitchen was fully equipped. Walgreen was across the road. My favorite Starbucks was in the same strip mall. Reasonable distance to Universal park. Can even see fireworks from Condo gallary :)
We loved out stay there. It felt like home away from home.
We enjoyed the stay and it was so close to the Disney Parks and the Orlando Premium Outlet Mall...Also, the view was beautiful and peaceful!!!
Medicine Hat Alberta Canada
Affordable, very clean
This condo is in a very nice resort, great pool area. My husband and I were on our own so we had lots of room for 2 people, 2 bathrooms even. I am not too sure about the bunkbed arrangement for some families. Not in a bedroom, tucked in the hallway so it might be too noisy for some kids depending on what the rest of the family is doing. We did not rent a car and found that there is no grocery store within walking distance. Dealing with the owner was no problem at all.
relaxing and enjoyable stay
The guest/service staff was great. The accomadation was just what we were looking for. Spacious,comfortable and homey. It was near all the activities we did for the weekend. Great balony ad view, swimming pool was also very nice.
We stayed at this condo for 4 nights at the end of Jan and must say it is one of the best condo expereinces I have had. The rooms were clean, kitchen well equipped and living room spacious. The balcony overlooking lake Bryan is large and makes for a very good breakfast spot. I used the laundry machine as well and it was convenient having all my clothes clean after a trip. Blue Heron check in - check out was smooth and since it is located central to most locations, you get to attractions fast. Shshank was very responsive and assisted when I actually lost my booking information.
Pembroke Pines, FL
The place was everything it said it was!!!
We were not disappointed at all. The owner kept in constant communication with us and with quick responses. They made sure to address us promptly and professionally.
The condo had a beautiful view as well! It was spacious for me, my 3year old daughter and both my parents. The unit provided everything we needed from kitchen utensils to detergents for the laundry. All we had to do was groceries and we ate in as if it were our own home. All appliances worked great and provided dishwasher soap as well.
The location of the condo felt like it was in the heart of everything. All the parks were much closer than we thought which made it convenient for us to drive about. My favorite part was having a Starbucks right in front of the place :) Although we did not use the pool since it was too cold, it was bug and the balcony had such a beautiful view of the lake. There is a very nice pier in the back that you can go to as well as a small nature walkway which was so peaceful before the Disney chaos of the day. lol
We already agreed that the next time we visit, it will be here at this condo ;-)
Fabulous Family Vacation
Our stay in this condo last November was amazing. We had 3 condos all next to each other for our extended family. All rooms were very nice and clean. The view overlooking the pool and the lake was phenomenal.
The location was close to Disney parks and Sea World. Many restaurants were within walking distance. There were also several options for shopping nearby. The staff was friendly and check-in/out was a breeze.
Shshank was great to work with before the trip, quick to respond, and offered a lot of helpful information. I would highly recommend this rental.
Blue Heron visit beginning New Year 2013
Very good value for the money and the location was also convenient to both Disney and Universal. Also convenient to stores and restaurants. Free shuttle to Disney was a bonus.
Condo was clean and comfortable with a nice view of the lake from the balcony.
Only negative was the inernet access was a little shaky at times.
Danielle De Ciantis
Great location, amazing time!!!
This condo is in an amazing location! We went down to Orlando to do all of the parks and we stayed at this condo for 3 nights. It was absolutely perfect location for what we needed. 5 mins awayfrom outlet mall, 2 mins from Disney Parks and 10 mins from Universal. There was also a costco and supermarket in close proximity. There is a full equipped kitchen in the condo that we used to cook all of our meals. The view from condo is gorgeous and the grounds are extremely well kept. Parkig is free. There are tons of restaurants within walking distance. Great great great!!!
Barb and Ken
I can't tell you how impressed I was with the staff, location and the condo it self. What an amazing place. I would recommend this condo to anyone. Thank you for letting us share your condo for our vacation.
Beautiful place, great location, great views, great ammenities,
My stay was wonderful! I was in town for the Disney Marathon weekend and I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The price was so much cheaper than in the park. The location is one exit from some of the parks, so it was really easy to get there and there are lots of restaurants very close by. The heated pool was awesome and the condo itself was very clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate for a minute to book here again. Shshank responded immediately to my inquiry and followed up after my stay. Very pleasant to work with. Very satisfied customer!
You get more than you pay for.
Our condo was one of the best parts of our vacation. It is very close to all Disney properties. It was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed for the week stay. We brought food and were right at home for the week. The kids loved the bunk beds. The master bedroom was roomy and comfortable. The resort public areas were clean, accommodating and comfortable as well. I would recommend this to anyone going to the Orlando area. You simply cannot beat the value.
My girls' trip
The condo was perfect for our needs. We would watch the fireworks from the platform most nights. The volcano at the minigolf place was fun to see as well. The location was excellent to Downtown Disney, Discovery Cove and Universal Studios. The only hiccup was finding a parking place after spending a late night at the park. The Starbucks was with in walking distance. We look forward to a return trip.
My husband and I stayed for 2 days after our cruise. I am very particular about where I stay and put a lot of time into finding accommodations that were up to my standards yet affordable. Also this was an early anniversary vacation so I wanted peaceful surroundings yet convenience to shopping etc. We found it! The owner was a pleasure to work with and we enjoyed our stay very much.
Relaxing, low-key, perfect for our trip!
Really loved our stay, and were pleased that it was exactly as it had been represented. Quiet, plenty of room, clean...and perfect for our needs. So much better than staying in a cramped hotel room...we loved it and it will be the first place we look to for future trips. Thank you!
Can't beat the location!
We were fortunate to stay at this beautiful condo a few days ago. First of all, when we arrived we were greeted at the door by very friendly staff. Check in was quick. We were directed to another counter to get our parking pass and the lady behind the counter asked if we would like to come to a presentation in exchange for a $75 master card or tickets to a dinner show at a reduced price. We decided not to do the presentation and there was no push back.
In terms of the accommodations, they were beautiful and comfortable for 2 adults and 2 kids. At first I was not sure about the bunk beds in the hall but the kids loved it. The bunk beds were in very close proximity to the master bedroom. The Master bedroom had an ensuite which was very handy and the kids had their own bathroom. The kitchen is fully stocked and little things such as laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, coffee was supplied.
The location cannot be beat! It is so close to downtown disney. As well it is close to the other disney parks. They do have a shuttle that will take you to the parks but we rented a car so did not partake in the shuttle.
Cici's pizza is located in front of the building and I highly recommend eating there. It is cheap (family of four for $20 including drinks and all you can eat pizza with a coupon) .
The pool is wonderful! It is heated so no problem swimming any time. And the people staying in this building are so friendly.
I have to say Shshank was so pleasant and quick with e-mail questions. We have rented a lot of vacation homes and the customer service is second to none. Oh did I mention how affordable this rental is? Which is really important to us. Thanks Shshank for having us stay at your beautiful condo. We will be back for sure!
Great experience, will definitely use again
Condo was very clean, had everything we needed. We enjoyed having a kitchen that was fully equipped, nice not to have to eat out every meal. Plenty of space for 6 of us. The location was perfect - reasonably priced restaurants nearby, bus transportation to the Disney transportation station, convenient to everything. We were very pleased with our stay, and will definitely come again!!!
We had a fantastic time at the resort. The rooms were beautiful.
spacious , clean & affordable!!
I was nervous to book any condo as we usually stay on disney property but as we were spending Christmas there I wanted something that felt more like a home than a hotel room. This turned out to be a great pick -from booking to check out - my emails were promptly responded too and all my questions were answered when I called. It was great to have so much room, a washer and dryer and very close to everything! We would definately book again
Great experience and memories
My family and I stayed at this condo during the end of October / early November and we had a great time. The location was fantastic as it was quite close to the Disney parks and Seaworld. In addition, there is a Super Walmart just a 5 minute drive away for all your grocery needs as well as a pharmacy across the street.
The personal at the hotel were friendly, helpful and were always available for questions. Buying tickets directly at the hotel was also pretty easy and the concierge gave great advice.
The condo itself was very clean, private, and spacious and the wifi connection was very practical. The condo owner was very helpful and answered all my questions honestly.
We really couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely consider staying here again.
Wonderful Views and Comfortable Quarters
Great Stay overall. Owner very attentive and detail oriented- went above and beyond to accomodate. Little bit of rough time checking in...Renters: Make sure you do not arrive earlier then 4pm to check in...staff will not allow you to check in early. Time share seminar offered at time of check in...great discounts on tickets, but must alot 2 hours for seminar. Beautiful Premise, Great Views, Close to everything!!! I would definately rent this condo again- and recommend it to anyone that has a famly of 4 or less. Johnny: The night manager...awesome!! If you want or need anything done- hes your man! A+
Great Stay in Orlando
We enjoyed a three day stay at this property while on vacation in Orlando. The condo was beautiful, well maintained and had everything we needed for our stay, including a full kitchen. Working washer and dryer in the room was extremely handy. The condo has a lake view in the back, and the property had three pools and a hot tub that we enjoyed during our stay.
The property itself is located on a busy highway. There are several other businesses in front of it. You do get a nice view of Disney fireworks at night if you stand in the breezeway outside the unit door. It is very centrally located to Disney (which is about 5 minutes away), Sea World, and Universal.
There were only two negatives with this resort - First, there is a nightly "resort fee" charged which allows you to make local calls, access wi-fi internet, and use the pool and exercise rooms, amenities that are often included in the price at other resorts. Second, we could not find a luggage cart for guest use during check-in/check-out. Having one would have been very helpful.
Overall, we had an excellent time, and really enjoyed our stay here. I would not hesitate to stay here again during our next vacation.
Booked the one-bedroom apartment for 2 nights. The owner is very prompt in answering your queries right from the beginning, no probs in this area. Was very amazed because it is huge (as I came from London where space is just okay). Loved the fact that there is a washing machine and a dryer inside. Bunk beds will suit bigger children though as it is quite high. You will have everything you need in the kitchen as they provide essentials. Location is very accessible to attraction and they provide shuttle services to Disneyland and Seaworld which is a plus.
Great place to stay when visiting Disney
The condo was very clean, nicely furnished and had all of the amenities needed. We had our four year old grandson with us and he fell in love with the bunk beds in the hallway. What a clever idea for children. They are close to the master bedroom and with the bunk beds another room isn't required. Great value. It is close to a grocery, nice restaurants, and theme parks. The pools and hot tubs were relaxing when returning from a full day of fun. Free covered parking was a plus.
Enjoyed our stay in the 1BR Condo. Amenities were very nice, bed was very comfortable, and wireless connection added to the convenience.
Clean, great location & helpful staff
When my aunt and family from UK decided to visit Orlando, we were looking for a place with all the facilities and that has a close proximity to all the major attractions. And Blue Heron was all that and more. The place is clean with everything that you need in the villa. The kitchen had all the stuff needed like dishwasher, washing soap, pans, microwave, silverware, toaster, coffee maker etc. We never had breakfast from outside during our 4 day stay. Our room was on the 12th floor and the balcony was facing a lake which was a great place to have the morning tea. They have a nice swimming pool which was used by the kids. Good air conditioning. Plenty of beds for 6-8 people to sleep which includes a sofa bed. Overall a great stay. Only thing I would suggest is to change the mattress in the sofa bed which looked over used and soiled.

Family trip to Orlando
I had a business meeting in Orlando and brought my family with me to enjoy the parks. One of our kids has physical disability that Disney did not handle well and it completely ruined our morning, but it all changed once we called Shshank. Even if it was way before the check-in time, he was able to get my family in the room early. As soon as my kids saw the room and the pool, they forgot all the bad experiences and called me to happily report that the "condo is absolutely awesome". We really enjoyed the pool and sunrise over the lake in the mornings. It was nice to have the full kitchen and be able to have breakfast right at the condo and cook dinner on one of the days. Thank you, we had a great time!
Great Choice !!
It was very comfortable, nicely decorated, with a full kitchen, washer and dryer. The room was new, clean and had everything you would need. It's about as close as you can get to Disney without staying on site - perhaps a 10 minute drive to the parking lot. Would stay here again. Highly recommend this condo to others. We liked the bunk beds in hallway and the way the rooms were designed. We had plenty of room in this family suite. it was a great atmosphere, my family really enjoyed the room, pool and view of lake. Personnel at the front desk were very nice and helpful. It was a good time.
Beyond our expectations!
My family and I stayed at the Blue Heron in June, 2010. The stay was awesome. The staff was friendly and very professional. The room was very clean and we had a spectacular view of the lake. We have already decided this will be our stay on our next visit to Orlando. Perfect!
Fantastic Views, Great Place
We stayed here for a week last month. This was my kids' first Disney vacation and they absolutely loved it. We had a wonderful experience at this condo as well. It was very close to Disney parks - 10 minutes by car. I think that the resort also offered free shuttles to parks but we did not use them as we had a rental car. It was nice that kids were able to enjoy the Disney fireworks from the corridor in their PJs. Both of us loved the fantastic view of the sunrise with coffee from our 9th floor balcony. Kids also had a great time in the kiddeie pool. The kitchen was great for our needs. The management staff was very friendly. The owner was also very nice. He told us about the website that we can purchase the disney and other parks tickets from for a lesser price than the parks themselves. Overall we had a wonderful time. I would definitely stay there again !! Thanks
