Make a holiday villa in Lake Wales your home away from home

When people think of Florida, they generally think of the beach and the Everglades. Holiday villas in Lake Wales, however, introduce guests to all sides of Florida; quite literally. Equidistant from both coasts, Lake Wales holiday rentals are supremely positioned to exploit the facilities of nearby Orlando, yet get away from it all in the quiet natural surroundings of the Everglades. All holiday accommodation in Lake Wales comes fully air-conditioned to beat the heat, and with every modern convenience to remove hassle from the holiday. Many rentals in Lake Wales have access to a pool and BBQ area.

Things to do

-Beaches: With both the west coast and east coast to choose from, visitors can ply the warmer waters of the Gulf of Mexico for fish one day, and dare the rolling breakers of the Atlantic coast the next. Both are only an hour's drive away, so the best of both beach worlds are separated from Lake Wales holiday accommodation by a commute most Americans don't think twice about driving.

-Theme Parks: Orlando is well known for its theme and amusement parks, and indeed there are a wealth to enjoy. The two biggest, Disney and Universal Studios, actually each consist of a number of different parks, diversifying any visit and making each a multi-day affair, if desired. Other notable options include Sea World and Legoland.

-Everglades: The diversity of flora and fauna sets the Everglades apart from most other wilderness areas. The often portrayed swamp wetlands are something of a misrepresentation, as there are seven distinct ecosystems, which is why it's such a treat to visit. Camping, hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding are all popular ways to experience the variety: it's not all airboats, though those excursions are available too.

-Spook Hill: This Lake Wales curiosity is an optical illusion: the juxtaposition of several surrounding features make it seem as though visitors are travelling uphill, when actually heading downwards. Also known as a gravity hill, a car in neutral will appear to freewheel upwards!

-Watersports: Set in the heart of a collection of lakes, watersports are one of the chief pastimes of residents and visitors alike. Marinas serving Lake Kissimmee and nearby Winter Haven can provide tourists with everything they need to enjoy a day on the water, whether it be fishing, waterskiing or simply cruising around taking in the sights.

Weather in Lake Wales

Florida's climate is described as 'humid subtropical'; thanks, in no small part, to the amount of water around. The humidity in summer can be uncomfortable for some with temperatures getting into the mid-30s, but this often breaks into a late thunderstorm that can cool things down a little, at least temporarily. The winters are somewhat akin to British summers, with warm, low-20s temperatures and little in the way of rain, explaining Florida's year-round appeal.

Travel to Lake Wales

Fly/drive connections to Lake Wales are good, with two options to choose from: Orlando and Tampa international airports. Both have direct flights to Europe, with Orlando being the closest hub at 53 miles away, while Tampa is 68 miles away. Fly/drive is by far the best way to get around, thanks to cheap petrol and a thoughtfully planned road system. Likely because of its international reputation, Orlando does have a fairly reliable public transport system, somewhat superior to many other American cities; but this doesn't extend to Lake Wales. The nearest Amtrak and Greyhound stations are located in Lakeland, about 20 miles away.

This is something that really needs to be taken into account - as other reviewers have said : this villa is not ideal if you want to be very close to Orlando and the parks (Disney/Universal Studios etc) - there is a lot of driving involved. If, like us, this is not a problem then this is the perfect villa for you! It lies on the corner of a very quiet street on a disused golf course very close to Lake Pierce - there's lots of birds (vultures, eagles, cranes etc.) and we saw lots of lizards and the odd armadillo! The roads in the area are very quiet and scenic (lots of orange groves) with a few Publix supermarkets not too far away. The villa itself is very large, clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and lovely big bedrooms and bathrooms. The photos don't do it justice really - we were surprised how big it actually was. The air conditioning works well - the main bedroom was lovely and cool within minutes of switching it on. The pool area was a good size and with lots of furniture - there's also plenty of inflatables to lie on and play with in the pool. Booking the villa and dealing with Alexia was very easy and efficient, and our hostess Jill was very helpful when we arrived and couldn't gain access due to a misunderstanding (on our part) with the keycode. She was there within minutes to let four very tired bodies in. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa and we really hope we can return in the not-too-distant future. Thank you for a wonderful holiday. PS - don't forget to eat at Cherry Pocket Steak & Seafood Shack just a few minutes drive away - it really is a shack - but the food, the service and the atmosphere is great - in a gorgeous setting next to the lake.

This is our fourth villa holiday in Florida and this villa was the best presented so far. Walmart at the end of the community was so easy to get to and security were always polite and helpful. Would not hesitate to book this villa again.
