Make a holiday villa in Altamonte Springs your home away from home

Altamonte Springs holiday villas are found in this northern suburb of Orlando, a great hop-off point to see the highlights of Florida. From the adrenaline-pumping amusement parks Orlando is famous for, to the huge tracts of white-sand shores along the Atlantic coast, rentals at Altamonte Springs ensure a relaxing beginning and end to each busy day. Every Altamonte Springs apartment comes air-conditioned, and is equipped with satellite or cable TV, and a kitchen and laundry facility. Most have access to a pool and BBQ area.

Things to do

-Theme Parks: Orlando's theme parks are world renowned for good reason: there's nowhere else with a higher concentration, or so far at the forefront of ride technology. From the Shuttle Launch experience at the Kennedy Space Centre Visitors' Complex to old stalwarts like Disney World and Universal Studios, amusement parks don't get better.

-Nightlife: Altamonte Springs accommodation is located in a fairly affluent suburb of Orlando, so the nightlife can be a little restrained and refined. This can be beneficial for shattered nerves after the big rides in Orlando, however, and means the quality of food and service is generally excellent. More raucous nights out can be had on the coast or in Orlando itself.

-Beaches: The beaches of the Space Coast are only a short drive east, and despite the focus on space flight here, they are as good as any beaches elsewhere in Florida. A broad strip of sand runs for literally dozens of miles down Florida's Atlantic seaboard barrier islands, allowing good surfing on the east side and safe boating landward.

-Golf: The two main golfing options near Altamonte Springs holiday accommodation are Winter Pines Golf Club and Dudsdread Golf Course; both situated either side of the scenic Winter Park suburb a couple of miles to the south. The area does, in itself, promise a pleasant day out shopping, walking, or browsing.

-Nature: The iconic Florida Everglades begin just south of Orlando with the broadening of the Kissimmee river, and extend all the way to the southern tip of the state. With seven ecosystems there is plenty to explore. Closer to home, there is the fascinating Mead Botanical Garden to explore in Winter Park.

Weather in Altamonte Springs

The water table is so high in Florida that it looks in perpetual flood, but this is perfectly normal. All this water means that the land temperature doesn't heat or cool as quickly as dryer states, so temperatures never achieve the dizzying heights of Texas or Arizona. The humidity, however, is a direct result, which produces regular thunderstorms throughout the summer to account for virtually all of Florida's annual rainfall. Summer temperatures top out in the mid-30°C range, while winters are often more attractive with temperatures in the low-20s.

Travel to Altamonte Springs

With direct flights to the UK and Europe from both Orlando International and Orlando-Sanford International airports, it couldn't be more convenient to get to Altamonte Springs, which is located midway between the two. If any, Orlando-Sanford may have the edge with more budget airlines and an 18-mile commute versus the 22 miles to Orlando. Orlando itself does have a fairly substantial public transport system, but for getting around in America, the car is always king; with petrol at a fraction of UK prices, the convenience is hard to beat. There are Greyhound and Amtrak stations available, however, if the Americana travel bug becomes irresistible.

                                                                                                      I stayed here for two weeks in April 2011 having travelled from England with my daughter and my parents. I really do have nothing but good things to say about it and would recommend it to anybody looking for a quality property near to Disneyland. The villa is very well proportioned and well maintained, and has all the comforts of home including appliances, wireless internet and three TVs (one with DVD player) and even an iPod dock. The kitchen has good storage and plentiful crockery, utensils etc. The master bedroom is impressive as is the en suite and dressing room, and the other three bedrooms and two bathrooms are more than adequate for adults or children to use. The pool was clean and warm (even though we chose not to heat it). I loved the little details like board games, DVDs and books for the children, plentiful towels, instructions for all the appliances and the folder of local information. The development which the villa is on is quiet, but not so quiet that you can't enjoy yourself. The clubhouse was a great amenity that provides services such as ticket and newspaper sales and dvd rentals as well as the pool, gym etc. They also put on events such as an Easter Egg Hunt which my daughter loved, and a cook out. The owner of the property was extremely efficient, answered all queries etc very quickly and thoroughly and also provided local information that proved very useful to us. There is also a local management contact that you can call if you have any issues - I called them when I was unable to operate the washing machine (due to my own stupidity!) and they came round quickly to help. The villa is about 20 minutes drive to Disney, 45 minutes from the airport and is close to local shops and restaurants. This was the first time I have used the internet to choose a privately owned property and I was nervous about it. However, when I arrived I was relieved to discover that the nerves had been unneccesary, and I had chosen very well. If you are looking for a property to rent, you would do well to choose this one.
