Oak Island is an exclusive resort in a fantastic lakeside setting in Orlando, Florida. Located just moments from the many world famous theme parks of Orlando, from Disney World to SeaWorld, an Oak Island villa is an ideal setting for a family holiday, a quiet break in the sun or a full exploration of central Florida.
Although Oak Island, Orlando, is a quiet, self contained complex, its access to the region’s finest restaurants, biggest theme parks and numerous attractions could not be better. On site, the perfectly tranquil surroundings make taking an Oak Island villa a great option for those looking to simply relax, and the small fishing lake in the complex is always highly recommended by visitors. Each villa has its own swimming pool and the vast majority have huge games rooms, filled with pool tables, table tennis tables and large screen TVs with full cable TV packages.
Located in the heart of Florida’s most popular region for tourism, access to theme parks including Animal Kingdom (just 1km away), Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and Wet n’Wild could not be better. There are more theme parks than you could possibly explore in a single Oak Island holiday, but if you would like to avoid having to face the crowds, taking a self catering villa in Oak Island allows you to come and go as you please, arriving before the crowds or carefully selecting your itinerary to allow meals at home or even a quick trip home for a swim. The many restaurants and shopping outlets of Orlando’s main tourist route, US 192, are also all within very easy reach.
Golf holidays thrive from Oak Island villas. The internationally renowned courses of Champions’ Gate, Highland Reserve and Mystic Dunes are all within a few minutes drive, and due to the huge number of exceptional courses in the area, arranging a suitable tee-off time is never hard. There is plenty of countryside to explore from a holiday rental villa in Oak Island too, perfect for trips on foot, horse back or on mountain bikes.
Florida’s famous beaches can be reached in under an hour from a holiday rental villa in Oak Island, Orlando. The beaches of Florida’s Atlantic coast are a beach lover’s dream, with powder soft sands stretching as far as the eye can see. The waters of the Atlantic are wonderfully warm, with average water temperatures reaching 21˚C throughout the year, perfect for swimming and bathing. Water sports are absolutely world class, especially the fishing. World record catches are regularly landed on the Florida coast, but if you would prefer to see marine creatures in their natural habitat, scuba diving is a breath taking experience. Sailing, windsurfing, water skiing and kite-boarding are also readily available along much of the Florida coast.
Oak Island is blessed with a magnificently warm climate. During the summer months, monthly average temperatures can reach over 30˚C, with daily peaks in the mid 30’s, and evenings remaining easily warm enough to stay outside by the pool until sunset. During the winter months, conditions are perfect for a full exploration of the Florida theme parks and for golfing holidays in Oak Island villas.
A villa in Oak Island is just half an hour from Orlando International Airport (MCO). British Airways and Virgin Atlantic both provide direct flights from London to Orlando, making a self catering Oak Island property an excellent option for holidays from the UK. A hire car is essential in the area, as the many attractions of the area are quite spread out, and public transport is poor.
