Villa Rental Near Disney

Villa Rental Near Disney

Villa Rental Near Disney - Check out this pool

I read the letters about holidays in a newspaper last Friday and just had to add my moans for good measure. OK, in our case it was a holiday in Kissimmee Florida, and we got back home a month ago. Kissimmee 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 Jane booked in the same area, for the same period, but they went for a rental villa near Disney, 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 rental villa 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 Disney rental villa, 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.

Jane phoned again, asking if we would like to join them to share their villa pool at their villa. I must confess I did respond with some smugness, imagining their villa 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 rental villa in Kissimmee.

Later that day my Hubby had a disagreement at our hotel pool - 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 Jane’s rental villa near Disney in Kissimmee and drove off.

Our instructions mentioned a golf course, which we thought of more like “turn left at the Rose and Crown pub”, so you can imagine our surprise when the villa we had to look out for was right there not far from the greens and bunkers! And this was some luxury villa rental indeed, apparently one of numerous rental villas available to be found on the exclusive Highlands Reserve Golf and Country Club, Davenport, Orlando. When we saw the villas luxury pool I could have choked with envy.

We spent most of the remainder of our holiday with Jane’s family at the villa, 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 Jane’s, we resolved to also be independent from now on and book a private luxury Orlando villa direct from the owner next time.

With Disney just 10 minutes drive away, Jane's rental villa was an obvious choice. Whereas we were in the thick of it with all the hustle & bustle, Jane was in a tranquil setting in her villa, yet only minutes from Disney. She could buy her Disney tickets, Universal Tickets, Sea World Tickets from Kissimmee Guest Services and have the Disney tickets delivered direct to her villa the next day.
