Holiday Villas on a Budget

Holiday Villas on a Budget

If you have been reading these posts, you’ve probably surmised two things about me:

1. That I love drinking wine and 2. I love a bargain and try to save money when and where I can (so I can buy more wine) (just kidding) (please drink responsibly). Rental homes, rental condos, rental villas are already a deal when you consider the price it would cost to rent a hotel room. Rental homes can provide beds for up to 14 guests, which is unheard of in any other vacation setting– and at a hotel, would cost you thousands of dollars just for one night.

Another great thing about vacation rentals is how much money you save by cooking meals in your own fully-equipped kitchen, playing on golf courses included in the vacation community, or spending time in the private pool, spa, and game room that might come with you rental.

For example this rental villa here:


This one is listed at $169 a night. It can sleep up to 12 occupants. And the listing mentions homecooked meals, leaving the hassle of hotel reservations behind, and free parking included! Located in a gated and guarded community, this rental villa has all of the amenities you could dream of for your vacation. It is conveniently located near Disney. It has a sauna, fitness center, and two heated community pools. WiFi can be found in home and around the community in popular locations. Every home in this community is decorated and furnished and they even come with laundry rooms, with washer and dryer. This means that you can pack light and if you are flying, just take a carry-on to avoid the hassle at the airport. There are volleyball, tennis, and basketball courts. There is even a games arcade for the kids. This particular home has its own screened and private swimming pool. For just $169 a night (that’s less than $15 a day if you staying at maximum capacity) you can enjoy all of these perks, the fantastic location, and everything that central Florida has to offer. Check out all of the properties at Emerald Island Resort to find your perfect luxury villa.

Another option is at the Paradise Palms Resort:


This smaller, but equally luxurious villa, is only 6 miles away from Disney. It can sleep up to 8. The dining room, kitchen, and living are open plan, which means they are perfect for socializing and entertaining after a long day at Orlando’s attractions. If you ever find yourself worn-out from vacationing you can relax by the covered pool, which has optional heating. This property includes kitchen, laundry room, and wide screen TVs. The resort itself spared no expense, which is why you can enjoy waterfalls, a lagoon pool, clubhouse, a movie theater, restaurants, and Starbucks in the beautiful and safe community you can call your own! This rental home is listed as low as $143.
