Make a holiday villa in Apopka your home away from home

Close enough to Orlando's sights, but far enough away for some peace and quiet, holiday villas in Apopka are superbly positioned to allow guests to immerse themselves in the thrills Orlando is famous for, yet provide a restful retreat for the day's end. They can also, of course, be used as a base to explore the surrounding nature. The huge Ocala National Forest lies only twenty miles or so to the north, and the lakeland surrounding Apopka holiday accommodation is well known as a holiday destination in itself. All rentals in Apopka come with satellite or cable television, and most are sited right by a golf course. Some also have BBQ areas, internet access, and even a pool.

Things to do

-Nature: Ocala National Forest is a huge expanse of pine forest, and features the popular Juniper Springs Recreation Area at its heart. For outdoor pursuits there's nowhere else on the eastern US coast to really compare. Of course, Apopka is also convenient for the lakeland of central Florida, so Apopka rentals are handy for watersports here, too.

-Watersports: Both coasts are only a little over an hour's drive away, so maritime watersports are quite available, but there are many other options on the freshwater lakes surrounding Apopka holiday apartments and villas, especially around Lakes Harris, Dora and Eustis, which are just a few minutes away by car.

-Beaches: While many of the surrounding lakes have shores perfectly adequate for beach pursuits, for the true Florida experience the sandy beaches of either coast are only an hour away. On Apopka's latitude, however, the best option for a sandy beach experience is to head east to the Atlantic coast.

-Theme Parks: The world-famous amusement parks of Orlando are only 15 miles away from Apopka. With a long list to choose from, guests are advised to start with the big boys: Disney World and Universal Studios are difficult to top, and each resort can easily be a holiday in itself. Other noteworthy parks include Legoland and Sea World.

-Nightlife: With a nice selection of chain restaurants and locally owned establishments, Apopka is a pretty diverse place to eat out. Bars are a little thin on the ground, however, but Orlando is a short drive or quite accessible by public transport or taxi if a more rowdy time is desired.

Weather in Apopka

Florida's subtropical climate typically means two main seasons: the wet and the dry. The humid wet season falls during the summer months, from May to October, when high temperatures hover around the mid-30°C range and most of the rain falls as thunderstorms in the afternoons and evenings. The short, dry winter season lacks significant precipitation and temperatures often hit the mid-20s.

Travel to Apopka

Flying into Apopka couldn't be easier, with direct flights from the UK to both of Orlando's international airports. Orlando International Airport is only 34 miles away, while Orlando-Sanford International Airport is a little closer at 26 miles. Orlando-Sanford has a broader range of Airlines making the transatlantic trip, and more of the budget variety. Apopka is also doable by public transport if desired, though a fly/drive package is always the most convenient and least expensive option when travelling to the US.

Would have given it 5 if it had been a bit cleaner

4 of 5
Great location, nice and roomy. Some times when busy it was had to park. Could do with another pool. Other wise it was great. We would go again a different time of year.

So glad to have chosen to stay here

5 of 5
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.
