My family and I (wife and two teenagers) really enjoyed our stay at the Castro's condo. It was our kids first visit to the USa and we found the accomodation ideal and exactly as described in the advertisement.

My husband and I were both very happy with this lovely condo. It was very nicely furnished and extremely clean and fresh. It's very conveniently located to the Disney parks with free shuttle service available. The only minor inconveniences experienced were with the internet service in the room. We could not log on until management sent up an external ethernet cable and even then the connection was poor. I understand that they are in the process of converting over to wireless internet soon, so hopefully this one issue will not be a factor in the future. Also the televisions in the master bedroom as well as the living room were very outdated. Perhaps they should consider updating to flat screens in the future. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would absolutely stay here again!

Would have liked a measuring cup and measuring spoons in the kitchen. Would also have liked a full length mirror.

We had a family reunion this Novemeber 2012 in Orlando and were looking for affordable condo for 2 families with kids and found Blue Heron Beach Resort, Orlando. We had booked the 2 BR Hi-rise Disney view resort and got the one at the 20th floor. The unit had 2 balconies, one overlooking the lake and the other facing Disney. The view from the 20th floor was amazing. One can view the disney fireworks from the master BR balcony. The unit was furnished, well kept and had all the necessary amenities for a family including Full Kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, dishes, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, coffee-maker, extra detergent, dish liquid and dishwasher tablets.. High chairs/crib were also available on request. The boys loved the Bunk beds located in the foyer all for themselves. The Wireless Poolside and complimentary Shuttle to Disney parks & Sea World was another reason we chose Blue Heron.
The property is just 2 miles from Disney Downtown and has lots of options for food and shopping. Walgreens is bang opposite the property and options for fast food like Chick-fil-a, Wendy's are close by. Drive down 2 miles to Disney World resort and you have multiple options for food and shopping. Michael and Kathleen, the condo owners did a good job right from enquiry, booking, sending reminders and information about the stay.
The only downside I could point out was that the resort does not have a business center where one can browse the web and take print outs. I had booked the park tickets online and wanted to print the tickets but I was told I couldn't do that. Most hotels have a business center and I just felt this resort should have one too.
All in all, the adults felt the stay was comfortable and the kids had a great time at the resort. When you compare the rate per day to the rate for two rooms at a hotel, this works out cheaper ! Highly recommended for families !!
I would definitely stay here again when I travel to Orlando.

The service we received was excellent, check in and out was simple and everyone was helpful and obliging. The Condo was fabulous, more than lived up to our expectations and the views were stunning. The location was excellent, convenient for all the attractions with restaurants, some shops and starbucks within walking distance. Large supermarkets like walmart & Publix a short drive away as were many more restaurants.
We loved the apartment with it's two balconies one overlooking Disney from which from which we could watch the fireworks at night and the other with a stunning view over Lake Bryan. There was nothing we didn't like and would love to return one day.

It was my first time reserving on line and I was a bit nervous not too sure what to expect. Let me tell you we got more than we expected. The condo was awesome, the TV and furniture are a little dated but were clean and worked perfectly. Enjoyed a very comfortable sleep and we were able to watch the Disney fireworks from the balcony. The Disney parks are close by and so is a Wal-Mart super center so we saved some money on Park meals by bringing our own. We have already recommended this place to friends and family

After reading some reviews on another site, I didn't know what to expect. However, from the time I reached the front desk to the day I sadly had to depart, I was extremely pleased. The accommodations are stellar. My room was on the 17th floor, overlooking the lake. It actually feels as though you are on top of the late. The front balcony gave us an amazing view of the Disney & Epcot fireworks. Everything you wanted in a home away from home was there. The place was clean, well kept and very comfortable. We spent a lot of time in the pool, including a couple of very late nights without being bothered by management.
Our experience was really great and we intend to book the same suite next year and also bring along more family members.

Check in was easy & room was just as pictured. View of Epcot's fireworks from the MB balcony was neat! Main desk gave us a courtesy call to see if we needed anything, which was nice. Best-location to parks & having a Dunkin & Starbucks infront of the towers:) Least-easy to locate towers (@ night) but signage was on small side & hidden by landscaping. Staff were pleasant and pool areas were neat.

This was more than perfect. The value and quality are so great I dont know why anyone would stay anywhere else. We stayed there with our 3 boys. There was more than enough space for everyone. Love the fact that the boys and my husband and I had our own bathroom. We loved watching fireworks from our balacony. Everything was clean and quiet. I would recommend this place to anyone.

The views from the balconies were just awesome! The condo was very clean. The resort employees were very courteous and very helpful. I just wish we would have had longer to actually stay a few days to relax. Went to parks almost every day. The pools were beautiful. The only thing that could be better was a few more utensils in kitchen. Most things were available though. Would stay again in the future. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay for our vacation! Very reasonable rates also.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom end unit and the view was amazing! We watched the fireworks at Epcot from the balcony! The bedding was comfortable, there was ample space for everyone and I would definitely recommend this to friends and family looking for the comfort of home away from home. The pool was beautiful all was nice and clean! We didnt even know if we had neighbors which is often a concern renting condos, it was quiet and peaceful.

We had a wonderful experience renting your condo. Reserving it was wonderful since the owners give you a code and you book right through the resort for security.
The location was easy to access Universal, Disney and Legoland. Trip to and from the airport was a breeze. We rented a car but did take the shuttle from the condo one day and it was super easy.
At check in they did want to had us schedule a breakfast for the condo sales pitch. I told them we would pass and she accepted my answer without too much pressure - its her job!
Guest services checked us in on our flight and printed our boarding passes for us the day before.
We didn't get to use the pools due to weather but the pool area was beautiful and clean. garage parking was nice since it was raining in and off. Kitchen was equipped with essentials to cook with. Laundry in room was great with two little boys!
Just What We Needed - Large Group, Comfortable & Happy

Accommodating a group of 8 seems like quite the feat when traveling to Orlando. We were lucky to find a condo that would be suitable for us all at the price of a hotel room that could only sleep 2.
Everything was flawless and the management were friendly and helpful. The space was equipped with just what we needed to be comfortable. The location was close enough to everything we needed from Downtown Disney to Universal.

We spent a week in this lovely property with panoramic views of Disney and Lake Bryan. The unit is lovely, the complex is beautifully kept with 2 pools and a dock for water sports and free shuttles to major parks, such as Disney, Universal, etc. We were well attended to both by the owners and the staff on site. I would highly recommend staying here for all that the area has to offer.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Orlando to visit with my daughter and grandchildren that live in the area. The view was amazing. I had a good friend that lives in Lakeland and has family that works for Disney, come to our condo so she could see the fireworks over the parks from our bedroom balcony!! The living room balcony was the perfect spot to decompress with the serene view of the lake. Wonderful spot for a morning cup of coffee. Bed slept great and condo was very clean. Check in was easy. The only thing about check out that I can complain about is...I had to leave.

We spent a week at the Blue Heron and my only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. The condo was exactly as described on the website. Everything was clean and well maintained both inside the unit and outside at the pool areas. We liked being 5 minutes from Downtown Disney and close to numerous dining options. Next time we go to Disney we will definately consider returning. Read more
We are glad you enjoyed Orlando and the Blue Heron. We welcome you back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Heron Resort. The resort was convenient to many restaurants, Outlet Malls, Disney World and Citrus Bowl Stadium, not to mention an easy drive to Cocoa Beach, all of which we visited during our stay in Orlando. The room was very nicely furnished and very comfortable. The balcony view was beautiful, and we were able to watch the New Year's fireworks at Disney from the front balcony. We will definitely revisit the Blue Heron Resort should we travel to Orlando.

Our stay was magnificent. We golfed, shopped, went to Epcot, went to the Capital One Bowl, cocktailed and ate. The condo was in a perfect location for us to do all of those diverse things. It was the right size and layout, was clean and everything in the condo worked perfectly. The staff was very helpful and very cordial. Getting the reservation thru you was easy and timely. Check-in went smoothly. The four of us left on Tuesday extremely happy. Bottom line was that you made me look good, thanks. Read more

Nice place to stay at. Staff is friendly and the room was clean and in good shape. Best part was all the fireworks we could see off our balcony on New Years Eve...there must have been 50 different fireworks displays going off. You do tend to get a little noise sometimes from your neighbors...but that is to be expected when you stay in a condo. Overall we had an enjoyable stay! (could have done with a little less traffic...it was horrible most of the time.)

We stayed from Dec 22nd till 27th in 2011 and the stay was great. The room was in great condition and everything was clean. The bunk beds were a little uncomfortable for the kids, but, the rest of the condo was in good shape.

We stayed for only a short period in November. But it was grest. It started with the great pre work by Michael the owner. He answered all ourt questions, focused on helping us get the best setup for our needs (we really qanted a quiet place), and followed up with us from right before our arrival to afterwards, always ensuring we were satisfied.
The condo itself is super. clean, large and plenty of things at our fingertips. We went to the parks and the return always was satisfying and restful.
Will come back again on our next tripThank you Michael for your help.

My family and I had the opportunity to stay at the Blue Heron recently. I must say, compared to a hotel room, it was fabulous. The unit was large, all the amenities were there and it was just right for our needs.
We stayed in a unit with a great view of the lake and of Disney. We could see Seaworld even from where we were.
The pool is nice, the staff very friendly and overall it was relaxing after long days at the parks.
I would recommend this to anyone coming down to Orlando on vacation and looking for an affordable place to stay. greast value for the money!

We came down for a week in Orlando. Had done the research and saw all the positive reviews and ratings on vacation sites. The. Reviews were accurate. The location is great. The building is nice. The view is superb. Love having our own balcony to watch the nightly fireworks.
The unit has a full kitchen which is nice. No onsite restaurants but there are plenty around. Starbucks right next door.
Mini golf also next door with discount.
All payments and Billing is done onsite with management group.
Didn't like cleaning feeyat first but when you do the math it works out the same. Still less expensive than reserving direct.
