No matter what kind of vacation you’re planning – be it a family trip with the kids in tow or a golf weekend with friends – there’s sure to be a villa in Orlando with your name on it.
Not only are villas great value for money, they’re often decked out with the kind of top-notch amenities that you’re usually only find at high-end hotels.
But with so many different vacation homes to choose from near Orlando, how do you find the perfect villa? We asked the experts at Top Villas, who specialize in luxury villas in Orlando, for their insider advice.
Location, location, location
We all know it’s not just the villa that matters. If you’re on vacation in Orlando you’ll want to be close to the attractions such as theme parks, shopping malls and golf courses.
Taking the kids to Disney World? Stay in a child-friendly resort like this one which offers free transfers to the theme parks and free use of the on-site water park.
Want to tee off on a top golf course? Opt for a stay at this award-winning golf resort – it’s the only resort in the world with 3 signature-designed courses by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Arnold Palmer.
Filter your search
There’s no point wasting time searching through thousands of villas one-by-one.
You’ll save time (and maybe even disappointment) if you think about your preferences beforehand then tailor your search to exactly what you want.
When browsing through the Orlando villa listings on our rental site, simply adjust the filters to your preferred area, dates, price, and property type. You can even pick the exact amenities you want, whether it’s a swimming pool, a game room, themed kids’ bedrooms or more.
Time it right
A great vacation isn’t just about finding the perfect villa, it’s also about timing it right.
There is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ time to visit Orlando, but your experience will vary depending on when you go.
Weather-wise the best time to visit Orlando is during the winter months (November – April) when there’s little rain and temperatures are warm, but not uncomfortably so.
If you visit during the summer months you can expect the weather to be hot and humid, with highs of around 92F (33C).
A good option is to visit during one of the two shoulder seasons which run from April to May and September to November. There’s a good chance of warm weather and – if you avoid any school holidays – the parks will be quieter plus you’ll get cheaper flights and accommodation.
Share the cost
Many villas in Orlando have space to accommodate large groups and families, and these homes are ideal for gathering your nearest and dearest for some quality time together.
What’s more, by sharing a large villa, you’ll find there are savings to be made with the per-person price often working out cheaper than a stay at a swanky hotel. A 12-bedroom family villa like this option at Reunion Resort could cost as little as £39 per person per night if you book off season.
Add some extra luxury
You can get all the extra luxury you want when renting a private villa, whether it be a fully stocked fridge on arrival, great-value attraction tickets, or a private chef to cook tasty meals ready for your return from the theme parks.
The Top Villas concierge can organize any added extras you want for a bespoke vacation experience.
