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
Third year in a row staying at vista cay stayed in a town house couldn’t fault it in anyway. Since my last visit they have updated their security on the grounds which makes me feel even more comfortable eventhough I have had no trouble since coming to Orlando. The staff are friendly and helpful as always, the pool/jacuzzi is always clean and the location fits the bill as myself and the party I go with go to universal studios the majority of the holiday and it’s only a 10 min drive. There is also a local supermarket (publix) which is only a 5 min walk and has everything you would need and plenty of takeaways to choose from around the surrounding area. I have and would recommend vista cay to anyone wanting to stay in Orlando and would not stay anwywhere else. For me it’s a home away from home.
We had a great experience visiting Vista Cay! Lots of room in our 3 bedroom Condo. Our stay was short, too short! The pool and bar area were very clean. We enjoyed the walking trail and hot tub as well. I wish we could have stayed longer!
Just returned from a 7 nights holiday at Vista Cay. We stayed here 10 yrs ago on a family holiday and although it is now much more built up at the front of the resort, the quality of the accommodation / resort has not been affected. Very friendly staff, great pool area and plenty of loungers. The apartment allocated was bigger than the one we had booked so it was spacious for our needs. It had been prepared to a high standard and although we done very little food preparation, everything was there should we have wanted to. There is a Publix & Walgreens within walking distance for groceries etc and I would highly recommend the NYPD pizza outlet next to Publix. Great location near International Drive and close to the parks. Would definitely recommend Vista Cay and will certainly consider it when we next visit.
For our family vacation this year we decided to go with a condo rental versus a hotel room. Can I say we are beyond happy with our decision! Being a family of five and having three separate bedrooms, two bathrooms and a washer and dryer made all the difference. We stayed five days at Vista Cay. Upon arriving we checked in with the clubhouse, they have a gift store (which I didn’t go in) and a desk where you can purchase theme park tickets. The area where the cars are parked is gated and require a code to get in. Our condo was on the second floor, it was clean and spacious and had everything we needed for our five day stay: full kitchen with stove, fridge(water and ice maker), microwave, dishwasher and coffee maker. They even start you off with a single bag of coffee, a small box of laundry detergent and dishwashing detergent. The condo has pots, pans, dishes, silverware, glasses, wine glasses and coffee mugs. The beds were comfortable, the sheets were clean. The pool area was great! There’s a small kiddie pool, a bigger pool and hot tub. We used all three. Beautiful sunsets from the pool area. We also enjoyed walking around the lake walking trail which is right behind the resort. We only had one small mishap with our ice maker jamming up the first day and management sent someone right up to repair it within 15-20 minutes. All in all I would recommend this resort to friends and family and we would stay again!
The resort lies a 15 min walk from orange county convention centre, perfect location when you are at a conference. The appartment were big, had all you possibly need during a week. The resort have also a pool area, gym, bar with some food serving. Shopping opportunities within 5 min walk.
