This four-story Mediterranean-style complex of neat condo towers is surrounded by typically Floridian landscaping (palm trees feature prominently). The welcoming clubhouse is furnished with plush sofas, and there’s a concierge desk and a minimart for souvenirs and extra sunscreen — which you’ll need. The inviting infinity pool area overlooks pretty Lake Cay.
Bed and Bath
With two or three bedrooms and a minimum of 1,300 square feet, the modern, comfy suites are huge. Amenities range from granite countertops and multiple flat-screen TVs to double vanities and soaking tubs in the master bathrooms. Dining room seating for six, a laundry room, a spacious balcony, a sectional sofa and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless appliances extend the homey feel.
Simplicity rules at Vista Cay. With no restaurant, golf course or spa to compete for guests’ attention, resort life centers on the main infinity pool, the 12-person hot tub and, of course, the full pool bar. Equally simple pleasures — a game room, a splash pool — keep kids happy. A second swimming pool, barbecue pits, a fitness center and a 2.5-mile jogging trail around the property’s lake round out the basic but sufficient amenities.
In the Area
Just two miles away, SeaWorld flies under the radar as one of Orlando’s best but least crowded theme parks (its sister parks, Aquatica and Discovery Cove, offer even more access to the menagerie of marine life). Universal Orlando (home of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter) and of course Walt Disney World are also nearby. Around the corner on International Drive, amusements run the gamut from kitsch to cool. For the latter, try Pointe Orlando, where the restaurant options include the Capital Grille steakhouse, the Oceanaire Seafood Room and Taverna Opa, where belly dancing on the tables is encouraged. Vista Cay guests also have access to the Shingle Creek Golf Club, as well as the spa at the Peabody Hotel.
How to Get There
We were a party of six all arriving at different times. We had good directions and the code to the complex. It was a bit dark arriving late at night and we entered by the back of the building not knowing there were lifts at the front. There was No welcome pack which was disappointing as I’ve travelled many times and there is usually a welcome pack with a few things to start you off. All that said, This was a spacious and clean apartment. There were three bedrooms and a balcony. We had all the mod cons -as tv, toaster, microwave, oven etc. There were two bathrooms and a laundry and dining area. Plenty of towels for the apartment and pool towels too. This place is fairly easy to find and convenient. There is a pass key for the pool area and a lake that you can (and we did) walk around daily. Lots of squirrels running about and. A number of birds down by the lake. All in all a very pleasant place to stay at a reasonable price. There was a safe in the ensuing room, that didn’t seem to work. I phoned to ask for some support get this sorted and no one got back to me (in fairness we were out most days) and muddled along without it.

This 3 bedroom townhouse was exactly as described on website. It was clean, spacious and in a good location.
Plenty towels, cleaning stuff, loads of coat hangers and lots of dishes, all ideal.
Wifi signal was great throughout this 3 level Townhouse.
The pool was a 5 minute walk, lots of loungers and a good bar but unfortunately only a limited selection of food.
A few local shops easily with in walking distance, handy for getting the groceries in, a Publix was a block away.
We stayed in a townhouse and what a fantastic set up for a family! The downstair bedroom gives privacy and enough space that you do not feel lile you are living on top of each other. The beds were super comfy and the rest of the rooms well appointed. Staff were very helpful (we had an issue which was quickly and easily resolved) and the location was fantastic just of International Drive and very close to Universal. Would highly recommend and definately would stay again.
Our check in was so easy, I showed that we had 1 free drink from doing a survey, the gentleman gave me 2 :)
The room was super close to the absolutely amazing pool and hot tub.
The room was extremely clean, comfortable and just homey! Everything you'd want to do is about 10-15 minutes away via car, but you're in a nice area that is super quiet! Publix and Walgreens are a stones throw away as well!
Amazing 3 night stay, great price, great everything!
Our 3 bedroom 2 bathroom unit in Vista Cay Orlando was comfortable for 5 people. The property & units are well maintained & staff are pleasant. This location is easy to get to/from the theme parks & airport. There’s a nearby grocery store making it easy to stock the full size fridge provided. The washer and dryer in the unit are full size too.
