Orlando in a Snap! Picture Perfect Vacation Rentals

Orlando in a Snap! Picture Perfect Vacation Rentals


There is hardly a more picturesque city than Orlando. It has the most beautiful sun-drenched beaches, incredible skylines that light up at night, amazing theme and attraction parks, cultural venues like theaters and and museums, small lazy beach towns, big bustling cities, and everything in between that you could possibly imagine. And all of it is easily accessible with an Orlando or Kissimmee vacation rental. You can stay in an entire home with you and all your fellow vacationers for the same price as a single hotel room in the city. Yes, you will be able to experience all of the joys and wonders there are in Florida from a beautifully decorated, meticulously maintained vacation home. Most vacation homes are conveniently located to give you quick access to the parks, and shopping, the dining, the fun and the magic that Orlando has to offer. Yes, you could stay in your holiday home and have an amazing relaxing time by the pool or on the tennis court working on your game, but you have so many options that venturing out into the city and the surrounding areas is a must.

And as if you didn’t need anymore reasons to pack up and head to Orlando already, this fall season has incredibly low prices on all apartment rental, holiday houses, and luxury villas. You can stay in a mansion in Orlando, with private pool and spa, and a host of other amenities for just dollars a day per person. It is an incredible deal just for the accommodations. When you start to factor in all of the other benefits that come with staying in an entire house, then you will quickly realize that the price and the benefits are just too good to beat.

You get the entire house with multiple bedrooms. Yes, hotels can accommodate four people per room, but you have a tiny shared one room with one bathroom. There is no privacy. There is no me time. You have to make a schedule for the bathroom. And you’re forced to leave your cramped hotel room and venture out even if all you want to do is relax a little. That’s no way to spend your well-earned vacation. You deserve an entire house with big bedrooms and your own bathroom. A fully-equipped kitchen that you can use at your leisure any time of the day. A living room where you can relax and watch TV or catch up with friends and family. An outdoor area where you can spend the day by the pool or under a shady tree. What type of hotel can offer you all of that? Even if there were one, the cost of all those perks and amenities would be astronomical. I say skip the headache and move on to a higher level of vacation accommodations, by booking your vacation house today! The weather is already changing and if you don’t want to be stuck in a cold snap for the rest of the year then I would recommend shopping for bathing suits and suntan lotion so you’ll be prepared for your villa holiday or house rental soon!

Hotels are so easy to book nowadays. It is incredibly quick and painless to go online and find the right for your vacation and book it. However, that process is just as easy if you’re booking a vacation rental. On our site you can search for availability and number of guests and then have a huge selection of rental apartments, vacation houses, and luxury villas to choose from. If you are looking to book for the fall months, then there are even more houses that are available and the prices are incredible! You can get an entire house for the same price as a single hotel room. I know bigger isn’t always better, but how could one turn down an entire house with multiple rooms– bedrooms, bathrooms, a living room, a fully-equipped kitchen and access to a host of other perks and amenities? I don’t know, but somehow thousands of tourists are lured into paying a fortune for a single hotel room in an already crowded hotel.
A vacation home is privacy and comfort. It’s convenience and fun all in one. You can have your alone time in your beautifully maintained and decorated home. But you can also step right outside your front door to enjoy the amenities that come with vacation rentals– like community Olympic sized pools, recreational and athletic facilities, like tennis courts and sand volleyball courts, restaurants, cafes, game rooms, arcades, and even movie theaters! There is so much to do just within the community that you can stay amused for days without even leaving. Resort communities are a great place to have your home base during your vacation in Florida. They are far enough away from the city to be calm and peaceful, but they are conveniently close to all of the great attractions that vacationers like to visit.

You can go to the amusement and attraction parks as much (or as little) as you like. You can visit downtown and all of the museums, theater and sport options there are. You will be close to shopping malls and some of the best cuisine in the world. Florida’s beautiful weather and proximity to two oceans mean that it has a lot of delicious fresh food. I’m thinking— fresh squeezed orange juice in your mimosa and freshly caught lobster! Now you can imagine why so many people like to spend their vacations here. Whether it is an annual trek for the blissful summer season, a quick stopover for a long weekend in the fall, a well-deserved respite from the cold during the winter, or a spring break vacation that you’ll never forget, Orlando and Kissimmee are just a short flight from wherever you are located. Both are affordable and friendly to all tourists. And even with the number of things that we’ve mentioned so far to do in Florida, there are ten times more things that you’ll be able to discover when you book your vacation rental or villa holiday.

There is no time like the present to head down to Orlando for an amazing world-class vacation. You can stay in a hotel like most folks if you are satisfied with your experience, or you can spring for the better option which is a vacation rental in either Orlando or Kissimmee. There are many different reasons to come visit Orlando. There are beautiful beaches and one-of-a-kind nature areas, like the Everglades. There is the amazing dining and of course the attraction and theme parks that make Orlando so famous to people from around the world. There are so many different things to see, do, eat, play, experience, that anyone with any interest will be sure to find something to love in Orlando. The best way to take advantage of everything that Orlando has to offer is to stay in a rental home or luxury villa.

There are many different types of rentals to choose from. There are apartment rentals that have everything that you’d need in a small one-bedroom setup. There are holiday homes that are probably very similar to what most people, who are from smaller towns are used to. They come with two or three bedrooms, one or two bathrooms, a small living room and probably an eat-in kitchen with all of the necessary appliances and kitchenware. There are larger houses with queen and king sized beds and multiple bathrooms that are perfect for large families on vacations or big groups who decide to go together. And then there are luxury villas that can accommodate up to fourteen people. When you split the cost between so many people you can get that amazing, luxury experience for just dollars a day. Holiday villas have all the bedrooms and bathrooms to have private space, but they also have a large living room, dining room, and fully-equipped kitchen. They also often come with private outdoor areas. You will be able to find rental villas with private pools and spas. They even come with BBQ areas and patios so you can cook and socialize outdoors with your group.

Most of the rentals that you will be able to find on our site are located in resort style communities. These communities give the people who live there and who rent the homes access to community amenities and perks that would otherwise not be possible in any other context. You can find olympic, lagoon, and kiddie pools all in the same vicinity. There are clubhouses, recreational facilities like tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, and outdoor basketball courts. There are also of course gyms, where you can work up a sweat. You can occasionally find onsite restaurants and cafes, and even movie theaters where you can can the latest films, just a short walk from your front door.

There are so many things to do in Orlando, but there are also a host of things you can do within your own resort community if you decide to stay in an Orlando vacation rental. When you choose holiday homes, you end up saving so much money, time and stress, that it seems like the no-brainer when it comes to vacation accommodations.

Beautiful Landscapes in Florida Vacation Homes

Beautiful Landscapes in Florida Vacation Homes

There are many beautiful places in the United States. We are home to some of the most magnificent natural features and some of the most beautiful and dynamic metropolitan areas in the world. There are so many places to see and so many things to do, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and for some people that manifests itself as staying at home as opposed to going out and experiencing the world. To those people I say get up and get out there! With so many possible destinations you might as well start sooner than later in getting them all checked off. If Orlando is on your list (and even it is not) then you should head down this fall. Orlando is home to so many different attractions and is a perfect combination of beautiful scenery– think beaches, everglades, palm lined streets– and the bustling, energetic, fun metropolitan center.

A vacation home is the perfect place to spend your time while you are here. You can rent an entire holiday home for the same price as a hotel room. When you figure that you can share the house with others, which means you can split the cost, you can stay for just dollars a day. And that does not mean that you will have to be sharing a hovel. You get a full sized house with king and queen sized beds, multiple bathrooms (no more fighting for the one hotel bathroom), a fully equipped kitchen to prepare meals at your leisure, a living room with HD TVs for your viewing, WiFi included and much, much more. Some homes even come with laundry rooms, outdoor patios, BBQ pits, private pools or spas or both! Plus many vacation rentals are located within resort communities. These communities give you everything that a five-star world-class resort would offer for just the price of renting your vacation house. You get to be conveniently located near all of the metropolitan offerings in Orlando, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. Plus the natural areas, like beaches and national parks are just a short drive away from those resort communities.

Orlando is the best of both worlds, and getting to experience all of it can be very affordable if you stay in a holiday house. Holiday homes give you such a level of flexibility when it comes to spending your time and money on your vacation. You can go in a group and stay in a full sized luxury villa, or you can go with a friend or a partner and stay in a modest rental apartment (I will remind you that it comes with all of the benefits mentioned above). It is hard to imagine a better set up for enjoying all of the amazing things to see and do in Florida. So instead of staying home and thinking about the dream vacations you will never take, make a change this season and head on down to explore the amazing destination city of Orlando.

Orlando Vacation Homes: A Photographer’s Dream


With the advancing presence of social media, the skill and the scope of photographers can dramatically increased in recent years.

Orlando and Kissimmee have so much to offer the budding photographer. There are the beautiful beaches that are just a quick drive from vacation rentals. There are nature areas like the Everglades.

Relaxation & Productivity in a Vacation Rental

Relaxation & Productivity in A Vacation Rental


Some people (like me) think that vacation is all about relaxation and disconnecting from the stress and negativity from daily life. And while I stick by that idea, I realize that some people need to stay at least somewhat connected and get some work done even while on vacation. To these people, I applaud your work ethic and your commitment to work. However, it is possible to accomplish both relaxation and fun with work and productivity. Florida vacation rentals are the best place to get that done. Staying in a hotel puts you in a totally different mindset than if you were to rent an entire vacation home. You get all of the amenities that you’re accustomed to at home and at work. You can spend the entire day in your vacation rental and not get stir crazy like you would in a hotel room. You can leave whenever you like and enjoy the amenities and perks that come with a Orlando holiday home or luxury villa. You can get work done in the morning and then head out to the theme parks in Orlando or the beaches all along the Florida coast. There is really no wrong way to combine work and fun in a vacation house.

I always like to start the morning with fresh coffee. Of course you could make the little packet of instant you get in your hotel room, or you can brew a full pot in your fully equipped gourmet kitchen. You can also spend the morning chatting with your fellow vacationers. You make breakfast or a big brunch that everyone can enjoy in the eat-in kitchen or on the patio. Some luxury villas even come with private pools so you lounge during the day and take breaks to get some work done.

There is always WiFi and space where you can setup your laptop and work documents. If you are vacationing in a group then everyone can be doing different activities during the day and you can set up times to meet back at your holiday home for group activities. Once you get your work done you can celebrate by going out to Orlando’s amazing nightlife. You can catch a sports game or you can go to one of the many theater and music offerings there are every night. Even if you are out late, you won’t have to worry about the commute home. Vacation rentals are located conveniently close to the city, but far enough away for you to enjoy the quiet and serenity of vacation neighborhoods.

Play and productivity aren’t always compatible. Though I am a firm believer that when you exercise and are active, when you spend time with friends and family, explore and have fun you have more energy and positive attitude, which will translate over into your work. The better you feel the better you will perform and the better you’ll be able to handle failure, and the better you’ll be able to appreciate you accomplishments.
