“Old Town” which is located at “Marker 8” (the 192 highway has signs at 1 mile intervals which make it easy to remember certain locations like Vista Del Lago is just after marker 4) You can recognise Old Town from a distance with its fairground attractions, shops and bars. Be sure to visit at the weekend when the “classic cars” cruise the streets. Get there early about 5 – 6 pm, park up and enjoy!!
“Celebration” is a quiet town with beautiful shops and waterfront café bars and restaurants. Take a leisurely stroll around the lake and surrounding area and see wildlife in its natural habitat. The main street comes to life at weekends when the town has themed entertainment, crafts and live bands.
There are a number of themed dinner shows, all at great value for money. Down Town Orlando boasts the famous “Church Street Station” with live entertainment and dinner shows. Tourist attraction guides can be found in Vista Del Lago’s reception and at most shops and restaurants.
A little further away you can visit Cyprus Gardens a leisurely walk round its beautiful landscaped gardens and catch a stunning water sport show.
Travel north to St Augustine where you can enjoy a leisurely stroll around this very old historic town and get a feeling Florida’s past. Take a horse drawn carriage trip along the river front and take in the beautiful scenery.
Take a 90 minute drive out to the East Coast to enjoy a fascinating tour around Kennedy Space Centre. Catch the waves at the famous Daytona Beach and Cocoa Beach resorts.
Travel west to Tampa Bay and Busch Gardens. It will take about 90 minutes to get there from Vista Del Lago. Drive on out over the long causeway to Clearwater Beach with its white sandy beaches. You can enjoy boat excursions, fishing trips and evening boat trips where you can experience beautiful sunsets and watch the dolphins jump the waves!!. Your return journey from Clearwater is about 2 hours.
Further south on the Gulf Coast and you can visit Sarasota and Naples which both have exclusive shops, white sandy beaches and of course the beautiful west coast sunsets. You will need to take an overnight stop to visit these places.
If you decide to venture to Fort Lauderdale, Miami, The Everglades or the Florida keys you will need to stop over en-route. You will need to allow plenty of time at each location. The Everglades, miles and miles of swamp lands with resident alligators and native Indian Reserves. If you venture an airboat ride (not to be missed) be sure to protect yourself with strong sunscreens and insect bite repellent!!
Miami is a vast city with a huge harbour and sea port you can board the Caribbean cruise liners from here (Pre-booking essential) The boat trips up the inter-coastal rivers are a must if you want to see how the millionaires live!!
Travel further south to the Florida keys, a string of islands linked together by miles of causeways. It is over 130 miles from Key Lago to Key West and not a MacDonalds in site!! From Key West you can get a glass bottomed boat trip out to the coral reef or go snorkelling or diving. Visit the harbour front and be amazed at the grandeur of the cruise liners that dwarf the little fishing boats. Enjoy the sunset on the pier with lots of street entertainers.
These are just a few of the many reasons why people come back to Florida time after time. Whether you enjoy the exciting family entertainment, the shows and thrill rides of the Theme Parks, shopping, the beautiful sandy beaches, the surf and water sports or the tranquillity of secluded beaches and romantic sunsets, discover your own Florida paradise.
Please consider booking our villa for your next Florida vacation.

Family from Blackpool, United Kingdom Oct 2019

We had a great stay at the house which provided everything we needed for our comfort. The only hiccup was being told by security when we arrived late at night that we weren't registered and being given the third degree by the man on the gate before he finally agreed to let us in on condition that we register at the Club House the following morning. This was not the owner's fault however but a glitch in Vista Del Lago's computer system but it did cause us some concern at the time. The house itself was large and spacious, the beds extremely comfortable, efficient air-conditioning, three walk-in closets with an abundance of coat-hangers, a well-equipped kitchen and most importantly, especially at night, quiet! One of the three swimming pools was literally round the corner and most days we had the pool to ourselves. An abundance of sunbeds but no parasols so limited shade. Easy access via a nearby toll road to Disney World and not a million miles to Universal down the I-4. All in all, a great place to stay which contributed to a great holiday.

Having been coming to the USA for 23 years and staying in lake Berkley. I was a bit worried to change where we stayed, due to our old owner selling his property.
Vita del lago is a friendly, clean, quiet community.
The home is well equipped, clean, very spacious, lots of things in cupboards and drawers to make your stay more convenient.
the complex is lovely and clean, quiet and friendly.
there is a daily timetable of events, which you are welcome to participate in. All the pools are of a lovely temperature.There is also a snack hut next to the main pool at the clubhouse, the prices are very reasonable. My grandchildren loved the basketball court, and the play area.
Hilary, the owner is very lovely and if you need anything she is more than willing to help in any way she can. She responds very quickly to any questions you have.
I will definitely be coming back again to stay.

Family from Killingworth Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom Aug 2019

I believe we have found the perfect villa to rent on trips to Florida. Vista Del Lago is close to all attractions and a short car ride to Orlando International Airport. The villa has everything we needed. I particularly enjoyed sitting outside in the screened in area at the front of the villa as its so peaceful. We did have an issue with the washing machine but on calling Greg he came straight out to rectify the issues. The neighbours are friendly. The pool is a one minute walk away which most times I had to myself. If available I would book this villa again.

Sue

Family from Leicestershire , United Kingdom Jul 2019

First impression was ‘wow’ it’s huge! We stayed here for 2 weeks and really enjoyed our stay, well equipped kitchen, comfy beds and lots of space. Enjoyed sitting out in the netted porch area. Very quiet and peaceful resort, felt very safe. Use of 3 pools, 1 of which is only a minutes walk away. Great location for Disney parks generally a 20 min drive depending on time of day and traffic. 30-35 mins for universal.
Aldi, publix and Walmart not too far away. Subway and dominos at the entrance of resort.
Hilary was very helpful and rang us the night before to run through everything.
Would definitely recommend.

I stayed here a couple of years ago and loved it. My first time in America and this was idealy located to get to all the theme parks. The house is very well laid out and plenty big enough to lose yourself in. One pool about a hundred yards away that is always quiet and the main pool is great too, by the main lake with a tennis court, etc. Id recommend this place and will go back when I next go to the US. If you have a day in Clearwater, go on the boat trip on little toot to see the dolphins!
