I have stayed at Vista Cay a few times and have always booked Penthouses overlooking the Cay.
This apartment is simply beautiful and it is at the end of the block which I really liked as not only did I have views of the Cay but, in my opinion, the best views of the fireworks at Seaworld.
Lin has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, she answered any queries quickly and was professional throughout, lovely lady.
The Penthouse has everything you could ask for. In particular, the washer and dryer were an absolute godsend throughout our 3 week stay, the kitchen is very well stocked with utensils if a family wanted to have a cooked meal (I am not a big cook so only used the huge cooker a couple of times). My daughter and I spent a few nights at the Hard Rock Hotel but could not wait to return to the apartment, we both fell in love with it. The closet in the master bedroom was huge, I loved it and as for the ensuite... WOW.
There is a complex nearby with my favourite Pizza restaurant/takeaway NYPD which is a must visit. The Publix is a really good grocery store and you can find anything in there (although it can be a little expensive).
For this visit, and after speaking with Lin, I chose not to have a hire car and found that it was so much cheaper and easier to use Uber. I would never drive again, rather I would use the Uber app. Vista Cay is close to I-Drive and also the theme parks. When you think about it, you pay $25 just to park in the theme parks, the most expensive park to get to using Uber was the Magic Kingdom at $18 one way. It really is a no brainer and takes away the stress of driving.
I would return to this beautiful Penhouse in a heartbeat.

Five star vacation home!
What a beautiful condo! There is so much to say about it! When booking this condo, I fell in love with the photos on the website. Upon arriving at Vista Cay and seeing this top-floor condo in person, the living space and decor were even more stunning than the photos on the website. Our family instantly felt at home and none of us wanted to leave this luxurious place, with the Florida sunshine streaming in the abundance of windows, when our vacation was over! In particular, the master bedroom, en-suite bathroom, and walk-in closet are enormous. The living room area and pristine dining room were roomy enough for our entire family to relax comfortably together at the end of each day. The balcony is furnished with comfy patio furniture to relax and enjoy the view of Lake Cay and Seaworld skyline. The condo was very clean, equipped with laundry room. The key-less entry system was very practical with 5 adults. Centrally located; close to Sea World, Universal, Wet and Wild, and Aquatica. The Publix across the street was an added bonus. The pool area was large, clean, and not overcrowded. All contact with the owner was pleasant and prompt; when booking, prior to arrival, and during our stay. We will definitely be coming back to vacation again in this Vista Cay penthouse!

Beautiful luxury condo
Our family had a wonderful 2 week summer holiday staying at this condo. The spacious luxury accommodation meant all 5 of us had ample room to chill out and relax after the heat of the day. Our friends had stayed here in previous years and told us about it and we in turn have recommended it to all our friends. The condo was absolutely spotless, had a well equipped kitchen and separate laundry room with a washer and tumble dryer. It is centrally located just off Universal Boulevard, with easy access to International Drive and Sea World. We would be glad to stay here again.

This Condo Made Our Holiday.
Absolutely stunning apartment.
Vast, spacious, everything you need and more.
His n Hers sinks in the master EnSuite says it all.
The pictures don't give the actual size justice.
Felt like home, only better.
Quiet, modern all mod cons included.
Home from home.
Beautiful views from the balcony where we spent nany an hour on a late evening.
Vista Cay Resort also stunning and quiet.
Huge pool and jacuzzi and so quiet compared to a typical resort hotel.
Late night drinks in a quietly set hot tub.!
Lovely lake with 1.5 mile path and on site gym. Seaworld 2 mile away.
Universal 4 miles.
Disney a bit further but don't worry if no transport. We used the Lynx bus 111 just round the corner.
You can walk to i-Drive, only 1.5 miles.
Stay here, I guarantee you will not want to leave and you will never want to go anywhere else.
We will be back...

Donovan family holiday
The apartment has great decor and lots of space. It's very close to all the parks and International Drive. You still need to a hire car, no-one walks in the US. The pool is quite large and lots of sunbathing space. All rooms have TV's, my son had a treat with a super kingsize bed and his own TV in his room. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 super king and 1 twin. 2 bathrooms. It's on the 3rd floor but there is a lift. The transfer time from the airport is 20 mins. Great location!

Perfect family accommodation
Just returned from two weeks holiday at Vista Cay Orlando. The condo was beautiful and very spacious, perfectly suiting everyone's needs - two couples and a child (under two). Both the condo and all communal areas were spotlessly clean and well maintained. Loved sitting out on the balcony for breakfast looking over the lake and planning the day ahead, then again for a few wee drinks in the evening....bliss! The pool area was very quiet which was ideal after a hectic day at the parks. Great location for access to all Orlando has to offer. Would highly recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to Orland.

wonderfull huge condo.............
we stayed at the condo in november over thanksgiving. We travel to orlando very often and stayed at alot of places but i have to say how impressed we were. The condo is very central, much bigger than we expected, clean and not cluttered. I think looking at the future bookings the rate is good and is not overpriced and the communication between the owner and myself was great. I would definately recommend this accomodation to anyone who is looking.

We recently returned from a 14 night stay here and being a frequent visitor to Florida, i can say this was certainly the best accomodation we have stayed in. The condo is spacious, modern, clean and quiet with easy access to all of the parks. Vista-Cay resort is also a great place to relax and spend a day away from the parks. Will definately be visiting again!

Would thoroughly recommend this condo. Very spacious, spotlessly clean and furnished to a very high standard. Great view of the lake from the balcony. Vista Cay is in an excellent location only a short drive to theme parks, shops and restaurants. Great pool area with plenty of sunbeds.

We stayed at this fantastic condo for three weeks in May 2011. The condo itself is great with everything you need for a self catering holiday. We have two young children and the condo is equipped with travel cot , high chair and stroller. The location of Vista Cay is very central and just a short drive to International Drive.The resort itself is very well maintained, with friendly staff, two beautiful pools and a supermarket just a short walk away. We have stayed in this condo several times over the past few years, it has spoiled us for staying anywhere else. cant recommend it highly enough. we will hopefully be returning again next year.

Absolutely wonderful condo!
We had a fantastic stay in this condo! It is beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a grocery store just a 2 minute walk, from the condo. It is an easy walk to the Orange County Convention Centre and to many great restaurants. The facilities at the condo complex are second to none! We would highly recommend this condo to friends and family and we would definitely return, on our trips to Orlando. It is almost too nice.....tough to leave to go out.....so very comfortable!

Property No 618
Just back from the condo after an 11 night stay. A beautiful, spacious, safe, comfortable condo, which has fantastic open views to the lake, the sun shines on the balcony from early morning to evening, with all the amenties within it you could need, including a British football channel on the massive tv.
Condo is situated just off International Drive and is ideally situated for the shopping outlets at Prime and Premium, Universal and Disney parks and the Golf at Shingle Creek, Grande Pines and the courses at Kissimmee. The golf, shoppping, Universal Studios and restaurants can be easily accessed by using Universal Boulevard rather than the busier I-Drive.
Would definately book again.
