Hotels and Resorts compared to Luxury home and villa rentals

Selecting the right accommodations can make your home base an integral part of your stay in Orlando. Renting a luxury vacation villa will put space, privacy, and world-class amenities at your fingertips. Here's how they line up against staying in a standard hotel or resort.

  • Space and privacy: The average hotel room is in the range of 350 square feet. Some suites and luxury rooms will be larger. They typically have one bathroom to be shared by all occupants. Not very private, right? With a maximum occupancy of 4-5 people, an additional room is often required. Adjoining rooms are difficult to confirm and often carry additional fees. You may not even be assured of a room on the same floor. Consider your family or party staying in a private 5 - 14 bedroom luxury rental villa, starting at over 2400 square feet. Bedrooms galore and private baths to go around, not to mention spacious living areas, outdoor lounging space by your provide pool, indoor lounging in common areas. 
  • Home Amenities: Every rental home has different amenities, but you can count on a fully equipped kitchen, game or arcade room, multiple private suites, TV's in every room (no more fighting!), WiFi, washer and dryer, and all the other comforts of home. Your family and friends will love having a morning or after--theme park swim in your private pool and spill-over spa located just steps outside of the villa. Private parking makes access quick and easy.

  • Resort Amenities: Vacation rental resorts vary, but all offer enough community amenities to make a full day or two at home and away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks just what you're looking for. Amenities range from Olympic pools, water slides, lazy river rides, clubhouses, basketball and volleyball, and more. 
  • Convenience - No parking problems here or costly valets! Room sharing is not always fun. The convenience of a bedroom to yourself where you can hang your hat (and clothes), stock your own bathroom, or dress at your leisure is a vacation must. Coffee in the morning doesn't have to be a challenge when you can saunter to the full kitchen and brew up your favorite. Snack time for the kids is simple, and the Gameroom and resort amenities will keep them busy without the expense of or travel to another attraction. If you are tired of waiting in line to have a pricey lunch or dinner? No problem when you when your kitchen is stocked and just steps away.
