This was a perfect place to stay for us. We wanted to be close to all the theme parks, but not on top of them. It was close to many restaurants, activities. Minutes to get anywhere we wanted to go. The condo was so spacious and the rooms were very welcoming. Loved the decor. The pool area very nice and it was great to have libations right there. Can't say enough good things! Folks should not overlook this place.
Very large space with a nice view over the lake, close to the po

The condo was enormous! We had 6 of us sleeping here for 8 nights, but it could have easily slept 10 in beds with floor space for another 4 easy. The master suite was incredible with a bathroom that was as large as the bedroom. We cooked breakfast every day and dinner twice. Kitchen is full size and is well stocked. We were there for a conference so spent little time during the day in the condo. Three families could stay but would need to share the two baths. The deck had a full size table and chaise lounge with a ceiling fan. It overlooked the lake/pond. It is located in the first building closest to the pool, a nice convenience. There is a grocery store and awesome pizza place within walking distance. Convenient store and other restaurants are very close by. Great if you want to be near the Convention Center but not in a hotel... it is also in between Disney and Universal and very close to Sea World. Try it and I think you will enjoy it very much!

When I booked Vista Cay and this condo I said that I would be happy if it was 60% as wonderful as it looked online--90% would have been more like it! The view was the best in the complex.The location, though close to Dr. Phillips Restaurant Row, was far enough south to be away from the maddening crowds! The furnishings were most attractive and comfortable (except for the mattresses which are in need of replacement).The appliances are top of the GE line.The management company was cooperative from the start.Bethany and Nancy went out of their way to inventory flatware, serving pieces and cooking utensils since they knew that I was having Thanksgiving dinner for my family of twelve and would have to fill in some pieces. The pool, club facilities,service and landscaping were lovely.Best of all was that the four of us who stayed at the condo enjoyed privacy and were totally out of one another's way for five days.What I liked least was that the air conditioner was set too high particularly during the night and for the large dinner. However we were able to readjust it with the help of the emergency personnel. Also, although there are four TVs, no Direct TV was available to renters since we received only local channels. This put kind of a damper on evening activity. All in all--we would never stay in a motel or hotel (even the 4-5 stars) again!!!

Not especially my decorating tastes but it was a comfortable condo. I think that table is much too big for the deck area.
One of the Tv's was broken and our customer service agent (Mick) was kind enough to lend us his own set. Another thing that might help others on check in is that this is the first time we were not given a key because it apparently had the system where you key in the numbers. Perhaps you could put a little note that explains how things work in this particular condo for others..e.g. trash pick up, key availablity, menus from surrounding restaurants, etc. We are always happy with the treatment that we receive at Vista Cay and plan to come back again and again.

A very spacious, well appointed apartment with great views over the lake from the balcony.
There were a couple of mi nor problems on our arrival both of which were speedily rectified by the agents.
Vista Cay is very convenient for all parks and International Drive.
The dining table only seats four people and although it was no problem for us for larger parties it may be a difficult as some of the party would have to sit at the breakfast bar.
Saying that if one wished to dine on the balcony there was seating for 6.

I love our stay with Vista Cay! It was everything that i expected and more. The unit was shockingly gorgeous, clean, and relaxing. We never expected it to be this breath-taking! I cant wait to plan the next one!
I knew that Vista Cay was in a very good location, near all the Parks and atractions in Orlando but the place was better than I expect. If I could make a sugestion I would ask for a renew in the Pool area.

Our recent stay at the Vista Cay was everything we had hoped for. It was clean, quiet and very travler freindly. We would most definately stay there again and recommend to others. One of our sinks was broken in the master bath when we first arrived, and Mick had already informed us and fixed it the next day. The only draw back was all the ducks and the few in the pool - but we were so busy we never used it. However, if we had time to use the pool it may have been nice to get the duck problem in the pool under control. But a very minor issue. THe location was central and conveinient to local attractions.

The condo was a nice stay and most importantly, VERY COZY! Felt like we were home. The only dislike about the stay was we had to supply our own tissue paper for the restrooms and how did they expect us to wash towls with no washing detergent in the wash room?? But, besides those little inconviences, it was nice!Note to self: BE SURE, to put washing powder, toliet paper, and hand soap on shopping list! ;)

My family and I really enjoyed staying here. The biggest complaint that we all had with staying in this particular unit is that there were no ceiling fans in the bedrooms. With the energy saving air conditioning unit and no ceiling fans to circulate the air throughout the night, we all woke up hot and sweaty. The other complaint's were that the towel bar had been torn out of the wall from previous tenants in the guest bathroom. So it was very limited to where you could hang your towel. Also one of the bar stools were broken from the previous tenants. We did bring the towel rack and bar stool to the attention of the managers and they were very kind, they looked into it immediately. Someone also decided to use our garbage receptacle. Luckily we only stayed one night so we didn't have very much trash. Other than that the unit's are wonderful! This was our second time staying here. We love the layout and the space that you get for the money. You can't beat it. The decor is also very nice. It is very close to being home away from home. Love the balcony as well. We will definitely stay here again in the future, maybe in a different unit though. We have to have ceiling fans in the bedrooms!

We've stayed at Vista Cay Resort for the last few years. This condo rental was a step above the rest. Location - excellent - 4th floor with views of lake / Universal fireworks out of all bedroom / living room windows. Building located right next to management office / pool / basketball courts. Immaculate. Plenty of towels / including beach towels for everyday use. Other rentals I've stayed in have had more of the "little" items - i.e., garbage bags, toilet paper, etc., but new Publix grocery store in shopping center adjacent to Vista Cay makes items easily accessible. Beds/mattresses very comfortable. Living area very comfortable. Included Nintendo 64 w/games / dart board / DVD player (DVD's available in rec room). Balcony - table w/6 chairs along with lounge chair - overlooking lake - - very nice!! Had detailed binder re: restaurants/ vista cay info etc readily available. We had some problems with the wireless connection, but was able to hook laptop up w/LAN cord, so not a huge loss. Some very minor damage in guest bathroom upon arrival,(hole in wall due to towel rack coming down)but this was fixed during our stay. Was given choice to purchase rental insurance for nominal fee and waive larger security deposit. Felt that overall communication prior to arrival could have been a bit better - I had to write and request info on address / entry code; however, once I requested, response was immediate. Will stay here again. Was very happy with this rental. Would heartily recommend to others!
