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.

The house itself is kept to a high standard with everything you need it truly is home from home. Ideal for family's and disabled friendly with ramp and walk in shower on ground level. Would be happy to book again.

                                                                                                    5 of 5

The property is large and had everything required for our stay. The kitchen and bathroom are an excellent size along with a great double garage with plenty of room for our large hire car. The pool is a good size with a safety fence for any children. Lots of different wildlife around the villa in which we enjoyed very much. Most places can be found within an hours drive and would recommend Kissimmee for a good night out (Old Town) on a Friday or Saturday.
