The very first time that my family rented a villa was in 1993. It was the first time we had done this and the luxury and freedom it gave us and our 2 boys made for the best holiday we had ever had. Most people come to Disney with children and long days are spent at the Theme Parks. These can be very hot in the summer and always exhausting no matter what time of the year. If you are staying on the Gulf coast you will maybe have spent a day at the beach.
What better way to end the day then to come home to your very own private air-conditioned villa and cool off in your private pool and relax with a cool drink, what could be better. A fully equipped kitchen is a godsend when the kids are tired and do not want to go out again in the car to a restaurant, a meal at home is so much less stressful. Many private villas have two sitting rooms, great for two familys holidaying together. They will have en-suite bedrooms and two or more bathrooms. You may find TVs in all bedrooms, DVD players, Play Stations and even Games Rooms with Pool Tables. No need to bring towels and linen its all provided for you. All the villas are privately owned, bought by people like myself because we love our little piece of Florida. In renting a villa you will deal with the villa owner direct and not a tour operator and can be assured of a very personal service. Many like us have management companies who look after the guests and are there 24/7 if needed.
Renting a villa is great value for money as the price you pay is for the villa and not per person. There are many communties to choose from, most of them are within 20 minutes from Disney, all sizes of villas ranging from 3-7 Bedrooms, the fun is choosing which one of the wonderful homes to stay in for your Florida vacation.
