Resort Villa Rental

Resort Villa Rental

Resort Villa Rental

I read the letters about holidays in a newspaper last Saturday and just had to add by moans for good measure. OK, in our case it was a holiday in Orlando, Florida, and we got back home a month ago. Florida was fine, no complaints there, but value for money it wasn’t. But I know now that it could have been which annoys me even more!

You see, we thought we were being smart when we booked into a hotel. My friend Rachel booked the same area, for the same period, but they went for a resort villa rental Florida, and we thought that’s not a holiday, what with preparing your own meals and that. So we suggested they could have a break from time to time from their resort villa rental and join us for meals and other activities at our hotel.

We duly arrived at our hotel and checked out the rooms, pool, restaurant, etc. After our flight we decided to have an early night. Jane phoned the next day to describe her resort villa rental in Florida, about which she was, shall we say, gushing? I was not in the best of moods because none of us could say we slept, what with the racket coming from adjacent rooms and the floor above. Our complaints to the hotel management were countered with comments about mutual tolerance, and the like.

Rachel phoned again, asking if we would like to join them at the pool at their resort villa rental. I must confess I did respond with some smugness, imagining their resort villa rental would have a postage stamp of a pool, whereas the hotel’s was what you would expect at a hotel. I said maybe we would drop by later and check out their resort villa rental in Florida.

Later that day my husband had a disagreement at our hotel pool with a French tourists - something about drenching a few sunbathers when he jumped in. I suppose he could do with losing a little weight. Anyway, we couldn’t keep putting it off, so we looked up the location of the resort villa rental in Florida and drove off.

Our instructions mentioned multiple lakes, which we thought of more like “turn left at the Rose and Crown pub”, so you can imagine our surprise when the resort villa rental we had to look out for was right there surrounded by lush tropical woodland and lakes! This was definitely some luxurious resort villa rental indeed, apparently one of numerous resort villa rentals in Florida to be found on the exclusive Watersong Resort, Davenport, Orlando. When we saw the resort villa pool I could have choked with envy.

We spent most of the remainder of our holiday with Susan’s family at the resort villa rental in Florida, and even slept over a few times when we guessed the hotel was going to be noisy again. When we considered that our holiday cost half as much again as Rachel’s, we resolved to also be independent from now on and book a resort villa rental in Davenport next time.
