Tips for renting a Disney World vacation pool home

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

One of the best alternatives to staying in a hotel when visiting Disney World is to rent a vacation home. Some of the best and affordable vacation homes are located around the Kissimmee area. There are different sizes of houses and Disney condos available for rent all year round. These short-term rental homes come in different packages and their prices depend on many factors, most importantly, the time of the year you are visiting. You may choose from a 3-bedroom flat or a 6-bedroom villas which can accommodate up to 12 adults.

First tip is to consider the number of people staying in the house and for how long. This first step determines the outlook of every other thing. Go online and find the right home for your Disney vacation and get in contact with the owner or caretaker via phone or e-mail. Compare the price of the house to other such facilities in the area to be sure you are not being ripped off.

Request for a formal contract detailing the dates the deposits and balances are to be made; find out if there is a cancellation policy; and buy travel insurance just in case, so that any loss you might incur is well covered. Get the full name and right contacts of the owner and be sure the owner is reachable on the phone by calling him a couple of times before you actually head out on your vacation.

Keep in mind that you may not be the only one seeking to rent the same house, so whatever you do, try to wrap up the deal as soon as possible. After you bargain and you have reached a conclusion, pay for the house online, using preferably, a credit card so that the records are well secured. Be sure to print that receipt before heading out to Disney World.


Disney World Vacation Homes

Friday, January 15th, 2010

A question always arises….what is the difference between Disney World Vacation Homes verses my residence. The answer is simple, all of the vacation homes found at dwvacationhomes.com have their own private pool, other than that they are identical to anyone’s residence.

To go a step further, understand that your kitchen in a vacation home in Orlando is fully equipped. It has an oven, stove, refrigerator, microwave, freezer, toaster, coffee pot, all your silverware, plate ware, glasses, and kitchen utensils. The dining area is fully equipped as well.

All of the accommodations have at least two televisions. One is generally in the great room with the second in the master. Many vacation home investors put more televisions in their units, but that is simply a matter of taste.

The bedrooms in most vacation homes are such that you will find a large bed in the master and generally twins in the other bedrooms. Just as I say that…there are many homes I have seen that have actually had two masters, so here you would have two large beds and then the rest twins. The reason for the twins is to accommodate the children in the party.

The key to a nice vacation home is your private pool and lanai. The executive homes which are quite popular, offer an upgrade in pool furniture and pool amenities. If you desire to spend considerable time out by the pool, you may choose an executive home over a standard model.

Location of Disney World Vacation Homes is vital. You don’t want to be driving all over the city when the kids want to see Mickey. All of our vacation pool homes are located inside a 14 minute radius to the entrance to Disney World.

When considering a vacation pool home this year, make sure of its location, the age of the property and check the nightly rates….a few answers to the logical questions will serve you well.
