  • Space

A typical hotel stay has 4 or 5 people sharing 300 square feet of space, one bathroom, and allows for very little privacy. Larger parties often book multiple rooms, often not even on the same floor, making for a fractured and inconvenient experience. Compare that with a large villa with 6 to 10 bedrooms with lots of private baths, plenty of space to relax and have personal time, and a private pool area just outside the door. Imagine having over 5500 square feet of space and having the entire group under one roof. 

  • Privacy

Everyone loves privacy, and there is not much to be had in a 300 square foot hotel room with one bath. Luxury home rentals provide the space for private bedrooms (and closets) and baths, several living spaces for relaxation, activity rooms, an outdoor patio, pool space, and plenty of room to room the community paths and recreational areas. 

  • Convenience

Nothing beats brewing up your first-morning coffee and enjoying it out on the private patio. Whip up a quick snack in the fully equipped modern kitchen, make lunch for the day, or pull together a "big chill" style dinner and drinks. There are no valet lines when you park at your own home, and how about happy hour at your own pool? Need to do a quick load of laundry? No problem with your on-site washer and dryer. Tired of the crowds at the parks? Take a day in your community enjoying the water slide, lazy river, and lunch at the community pool 

  • Cost 

These luxury rental homes are amazingly affordable. They start at $375 per night. Imagine sharing that with another family. You'll pay less than a standard hotel or resort on a nightly basis. Add in the savings for valet, meals, coffee, cocktails at home, entertainment - and the savings add up quickly. You can check actual rates and availability with Villatel here.

Can I trust vacation rentals by owner?

There are thousands of luxury Orlando vacation rentals by owner. What is the best way to ensure you get what you pay for and that your renter can be trusted? There are a few tips to ensure you are working with a reputable owner. Here are some top tips:

  • Consider renting through sites specializing in vacation rentals by owners such as HomeAway, Airbnb, or Flipkey. They often offer basic security features such as background and address checks, and uncensored reviews can be super revealing. Another great option is to rent through an agency that manages "curated" vacation rental properties and sometimes their own properties portfolio. This is an excellent way to minimize risks. In Orlando, Villatel.com rents a portfolio of luxury villas and mansions and supports property management and reservations services, and customer services. You shouldn't need to worry about the legalities of renting in their locations as they rent within luxury rental communities, which means even more amenities for you. 
  • Make sure vacation rentals are legal in the neighborhood where you plan to rent, as many owners try to circumvent the law, and you won't want unhappy neighbors or a visit from zoning. 
  • Check to see what insurance coverage they have to protect you against theft or injury. Again, this will not be an issue with companies like Villatel.com.
  • Pay by credit card. Always!
  • Review the property upon arrival to understand all of the features and document what is there and any pre-existing damage. Take pictures if you are uncomfortable with anything.
