The Top Most Large Family Vacation Rentals Orlando Florida Has to Offer

Grammy doesn't like too much commotion while the kids say, the more, the better. Dad doesn't want to spring for 3 rooms, especially when they are not even connected.

The most fundamental question is to assess how many people will be traveling. There are thousands of rental accommodations in the Orlando area, but only 50 or so resorts that can easily accommodate families of 7 or 8 in one room. Generally, for a room that accommodates 8 people, you are looking at a suite. Suites are often pricey and difficult to come by. If your party is larger, multiple suites in close proximity are complicated to book. Suites book up early. They will sometimes include an oven, microwave, dining area, and other amenities that will make your stay easier. However, a single suite still provides a minimum of privacy to the group, particularly if traveling with older children, grandparents, or multiple adults.
If your group is larger than 7 or 8, an alternative is to book multiple rooms at the same hotel. A standard room is about 300 square feet or less, has one bathroom, and provides a maximum of two queens or kings, so if you are accommodating 4 or 5, there will be bed shares and possible rollaway, at an extra cost. One of the challenges of multiple rooms is securing a block of connecting or adjacent rooms. Hotels are often unwilling to commit to this, as it means their reservations team will need to work around that when booking any of those rooms to ensure all of the rooms are open for the length of your stay. They sometimes charge a premium for that.
An exciting alternative that many savvy travelers are now learning about is large private luxury rentals. Luxury rental communities are popping up in Orlando and offer luxury villa homes with as many as 15 bedrooms and accommodating up to 26 people all under one roof. Imagine over 5000 square feet of luxury space. The per-person nightly rate on these luxury rentals is often less than a standard resort.

Special Interests- Who is included?
Thinking about the people that comprise your party is the next big item. Suppose you are traveling with multiple families with small children. In that case, there may be a focus on kids' activities, proximity to the park, conveniences like a refrigerator, laundry, quiet spaces for nap times, and kid-friendly activities conveniently located in the rental. Mom will be interested in preparing snacks or even a meal when the kids have had enough of restaurants.
Suppose you are a few adult couples traveling together. In that case, your interest may turn to privacy, adult activities like a private pool, an excellent spot for your own happy hour, or coffee without leaving home.
Again, the luxury villa rental trumps the standard hotel. Imagine a sleek, fully appointed kitchen for snacks, dinner, or appetizers when you're ready. When the laundry piles up, drop it in your own in-house laundry and sit by your private pool while you wait for it to dry. Make a potluck dinner or order pizza to enjoy at the 12 seat dining table or out by the pool on the patio table.
If your group is active, kids of all ages will enjoy the private pool right outside your door. Enjoy cocktails or a meal al fresco. Enjoy your movie theater with ten leather reclining seats, or head up to the game room for ping pong or some arcade games.
And did we mention that bedtime will be a snap when the kids see their fully themed rooms with princesses, superheroes, and lots more over-the-top features? These amenities are part of your rental villa. These are truly some of the finest large family vacation rentals in Orlando.
