Make a holiday rental home or holiday villa in Orlando, Florida your home away from home

As soon as you get off the aeroplane after a flight to Orlando you will forget the discomfort of the ride immediately. Orlando holidays is a good choice for ‘fun in the sun’, with more top rated attractions than in any other region of the USA. There is never a bad time to take an Orlando villa, as the climate is almost perfect all year round and then endless magic of Orlando never wanes.

Things to do on holiday in Orlando, Florida

Many visitors flock to Orlando villas purely to throw themselves into the magic world of huge theme parks and the universal symbol of Orlando; Disney World. The Disney park, first opened in Orlando in 1971, and has now expanded to include the Orlando Sea World, Orlando Universal Studios and, of course, the Magic Kingdom. Regardless of your age, taking one of the Disney villas for rent in Orlando will certainly leave you with an unrivalled sense of excitement, long before you even arrive in your Orlando villa! Staying outside of the parks is a magnificent way to ensure you see more than simply the inside of Mickey Mouse's empire, including the attractions of Downtown Orlando, International Drive and the beautiful Pacific coast.

If you manage to drag yourself and/or your family away from the adventures of Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Wet n’ Wild and the Orlando Odditorium (and odd looking collections of the some of the worlds most weird and wonderful exhibits, known as Ripley’s ‘Believe it or not collection’), the draw of Orlando’s International Drive is never far away. International Drive (“I-Drive”) is an unbelievable road, filled to bursting point with attractions, shops, restaurants, and hotels. There are no end of celebrity restaurants, fashion boutiques and luxury department stores along International Drive, as well as some excellent theatres.

If you are lucky enough to be staying in an Orlando holiday rental during May, the ten day Orlando Fringe Festival will certainly be of interest. With over 500 performances, concerts, parades and productions occurring in almost every space throughout the city, the Fringe Festival turns Orlando into a riot of colour, sound and activity. There is also a ‘Kid’s Fringe Festival’ for children which occurs at the same time. The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival in September and the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival in April are also exceptional events to visit during your Orlando holidays.

If you venture outside of Orlando and International Drive, you are confronted with some serious decisions.

Which ever direction you end up taking, you are going to be amazed by the beauty, quality and accessibility of this stunning part of the world.

                                                                                                      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.
