Orlando has been attracting tourists to the area theme parks for over 30 years now. In the time since Disney opened it's doors within Central Florida, we have seen our share of high rise hotels, time-share resorts and themed attraction lodging. But the past ten years has brought a new form of accommodation to the tourist district, Vacation Homes.

In addition to privacy and security, families visiting the attractions are finding more convenience and comfort by staying in a three or four bedroom home with a private pool. The cost of a renting a home, while several times larger than a hotel room, can often cost less.

The most popular homes are those that are the closest to Disney, usually in Kissimmee. Vacationers generally rent a car and prefer to use their own transportation to get around as opposed to hotel busses and vans. Larger homes of four to five bedrooms are designed to accommodate more than one family thereby providing additional savings and convenience. Having a fully functional kitchen reduces the expense of eating out for three meals a day.

With repeat business being so important in this type of rental market, home owners and management companies ensure that the homes are professionally decorated and continuously maintained. For those travelers who are not dependant on daily maid service or midnight snacks from room service, an Orlando Vacation Home may be the perfect option for you and your family.
