When planning a trip to Disney and the wider Orlando area one of the first decisions you require to make is whether to book a hotel or villa for your stay. Booking private rental accommodation delivers that home away from home feeling, providing the flexibility a hotel cannot as well as helping you keep a lid on costs. Key when choosing a rental property for your stay is location. Windsor Hills Resort in Kissimmee, only 2 miles to Disney, is closest to Walt Disney World. Windsor Hills Resort Rentals offer a broad range of property sizes and styles from large 6 bed villas to 3 and 4 bed townhouses to 2 or 3 bed condos. The resort itself benefits from top class facilities including a large lagoon style community pool with water slides and a clubhouse with a gym and cinema. Shuttle bus services run
frequently to and from Windsor Hills to Disney. If its golf you are after,
Windsor Hills is adjacent to the Mystic Dunes Golf Club and within easy reach of the vast array of golf courses in the Kissimmee area.
Next closest resort is Emerald Island (3 miles). Emerald Island Resort is nestled within a large conservation area so if peace and tranquility are your thing Emerald is the place for you. Again, facilities are first class with a large resort pool and plenty of space for woodland walks or bike rides. Emerald Island Resort Rentals offer accommodation varying from large (up to 7 bed) homes to 3 bed townhouses and a lot in between. Another perfect base for a trip to the parks or a golfing break.
Jewell in the crown of the wider Orlando area is Reunion Resort. Reunion offers luxury and grandeur on an unprecedented scale. The 2300 acre golf and holiday rental community is just minutes from Disney gates. Reunion is Central Florida’s largest and most impressive resort community. Single family homes, town homes and condos are all available. Amenities at Reunion are unparalleled; most notable are the 10 acre water park, over 17 community swimming pools and 3 championship golf courses.
Reunion Resort Rentals comprise anything from 9 bed super-mansions to townhouses and a range of condo styles across several mini-resort neighborhoods. When booking privately clarify with the owner what access to the resort facilities you’ll have as a guest in the resort (and associated costs if any) as the resort runs strict access restrictions based on owner annual subscription fees.
Ideal for a golf break but still within easy reach of Disney and the parks are Highlands Reserve Golf Resort Rentals in Davenport. Get access to Highlands Reserve Golf Club, one of Orlando’s top courses. Also in Davenport (adjacent to Highlands Reserve) you’ll find the townhouse only resort of Regal Palms.
Regal Palms Townhouse Rentals offer real value for money including a private pool, access to an excellent lagoon style resort pool with water slides, golf next door and a location still central enough to fully utilize all that Central Florida has to offer.
The Florida rental market is now recovered from its post 2008-slump however deals still abound with September being the cheapest month to visit when most UK school children are back in school. The best advice is to shop around, ask owners plenty of questions and do plenty of research into each property and owner. Most of all, if you haven’t tried renting privately through an owner before, now’s your chance. You won’t stay in a hotel again.
