Orlovista Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
With its quiet streets and rural atmosphere, Orlo Vista emits a small-town feel. The community is in an unincorporated area of Orange County that offers residents scenic views of nature, including waterfront views of the community’s two local bodies of water: Lake San Susan and Lake Venus.
The main home design in Orlo Vista is ranch style. You’ll find this style of home dating from the 1950s into the 1990s. There are a majority of single-family houses, with some multi-family units included. Orlo Vista encompasses area code 32835. The community is bounded by SR-408 (East-West Expressway) on the north, Pine Hills Road on the east, Raleigh Street on the south, and South Powers Drive on the west. Most of the area is residential, although there are a variety of business, such as shops and restaurants, located throughout the neighborhood.
Of the many appealing aspects of Orlo Vista is neighboring Lake Hiwassee, an 18-mile-long body of water that offers area residents the opportunity to picnic, hike, canoe, boat, fish, and enjoy spotting local wildlife. Next door to Lake Hiwassee is the Metrowest Country Club, dubbed one of Orlando’s best golf courses. The course features spring-fed lakes, mature native trees, and rolling fairways.
On South Hiawassee is the Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake, which has playgrounds for toddlers and older children. There are also soccer, baseball, and football fields, as well as a swimming pool and volleyball courts. For those residents wishing to visit an especially large body of water, there is nearby Lake Apopka, the third-largest lake in Florida. It is fed by natural springs, storm water runoff, and rainfall. Lake Apopka gained fame in the 1940s when it became a destination for anglers, who came from all around the United States to fish the lake’s large bass.
