Accomodation Areas

There are 3 main areas for accommodation here they are:

I-Drive:

This road is approx. 11 miles long and the Northern end of it is where most hotels, shopping and restaurants are located. Universal Studios and Sea World are close to I-Drive so if you are a non-driver or considering not having a rental car then this area would suit you best. I-Drive is served by the area’s exclusive and convenient I-RIDE Trolley service you can sit back and ride up and down the International Drive Resort Area. The ticket prices are just a few dollars or you can buy a week pass. Many restaurants all within walking distance of most of the hotels. There are two Outlet malls (Premium Outlets) one at the North End of I-Drive and the other just off I-Drive on Vineland Road and both are served by the I-RIDE Trolley bus.

Kissimmee

Kissimmee is closer to Walt Disney World and has the well-known Hwy 192 the Irlo Bronson Highway, which has lots of restaurants shops and motels. There are also some villa communities here too. The town of Celebration is located here too and was built and originally run by Disney and is a fully functioning town. Old Town is another attraction just off the 192. A lot of the motels have been here a lot of years as this was the first real touristy area built after the completion of WDW. Some of the hotels look a bit tired and in need of some renovation but there are still some nice ones too. The 192 can get busy during rush hour and so travelling to theme parks may take a bit longer.

Davenport:
Hwy 27 is a road that was once orange groves but has now been built up to cater for the ever growing demand for somewhere to stay, these are almost all villa communities peppered along its length Hwy 27 is divided by the Interstate 4 (I-4) which runs from Daytona Beach to Tampa. North of the I-4 is where most communities on the 27 are and the 27 also meets up with the 192. South of the I-4 will take you to Haines City and the last of the villa rental communities. You may hear a lot about distances to the theme parks from some of these locations and yes some are further from Disney but closer to the other parks each place has its own charm and good points and many people return year after year to stay in all the locations.

A – Z of Renting an Orlando Vacation Villa

Published by under Orlando Villa Rental

So you have decided to rent an Orlando Villa, so what comes next?

Well, first take a look at rental sites such as Orlando Villas by Perfect Florida Villas. Or Florida Villas, here you can browse or search for that perfect villa. Once you find one that you like, or several that you like, send out an enquiry to the owner listing your requirements, number in the party, dates of arrivial and departure. The owner(s) will get back to you confirming that they have your dates and the total price of your stay. You will see that it represents excellent value for money especially for larger families or groups as you only pay for the villa not per person.

Next, you pick out the villa that suits you and contact the owner directly, the owner may have asked for a deposit when the replied to you, if not they will do in the next email. this is normally a nominal fee to reserve the villa and confirm your booking.

The next time you have to make any payment is around 10 weeks prior to your arrival in Orlando. This is the final balance. You may also be asked for security deposit, this is refunded to you a short time after you vacate the villa. This is only around $300/£200 and is held as a damage bond. If there is no damage you will recieve the money back in full. Owners do not like having to deduct anything from this deposit and will only do so as a last resort and if the damage was wilful.

Shortly berofe your arrival you will be given details of how to get to the villa and how to gain access along with any other useful information such as management company phone numbers in case you have any problems.

That’s pretty much all there is to it, you have cut out the middle man and dealt directly with the owner of the property. You know exactly what it is like and where it is. Unlike booking with a tour operator where they allocate you a villa on arrival.
