Kissimmee Vacation Homes Uncovered

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Those that are looking for something a bit special know that the best place to search is where an attraction is located. This same advice holds true when one is searching the internet for a good deal on a vacation home with a private pool near Disney World. The key is to type in Kissimmee Vacation Homes for Disney is not located in Orlando but is in the city of Kissimmee.

When searching for a vacation pool home our surveys show you are looking for: larger space, your own private pool, you want to be close to Walt Disney World, you desire a full kitchen, and you want more than one bath. Other amenities are mentioned in these surveys but these were top five.

Let’s take a look at each individually:

Larger space…Vacationers today have had it with cramped hotel rooms. Desiring significant space where the family can enjoy some space for themselves is to accommodate the family in a private vacation homes. Here you can get a three, four or even five bedroom home depending upon your needs. The space difference is considerable. A normal hotel room is about 20 x 20 or 400 sq ft. The smallest of the private pool homes is 1,900 that is five times the size, and oh by the way, the nightly rate is almost the same.

Private pool…You are on vacation and you want to enjoy every minute. What a better way to accomplish this than with your own private pool. Imagine you and your family have had a great day at the theme parks and it is late in the afternoon. Everyone is a bit tired and we have to plan dinner…think about lounging by your pool, having a pizza or fixing some hamburgers on the grill, the family will have a great time…the fun continues and it is refreshing.

Close to Walt Disney World…How close is my home to Disney World? This is one of a few frequent questions asked by all guests. The best news is that all of our homes are inside a radius of 14 minutes to the entrance of Disney’s Maingate. There are no shuttle service due to the high cost of the insurance, so to use a private pool home, one must have access to a car or rent a taxi.

The survey said you wanted a kitchen…many people have found that the cost of a Disney World Vacation is quite expensive….matter of fact, the tickets will represent 70% of the cost of the average vacation. To bring the vacation back into one’s budget, many clients are finding that a home is a great way to cut as much as $100 a day out of the expense by eating breakfast and dinner in. Be aware, all of the pots and pans, dishware, silver ware, plate ware, glasses and utensils are provided to cook up a feast.

More than one bath…It is hard to fathom five people sharing a hotel room and all having to use the same bath to get ready in the morning. With a Kissimmee Vacation Home one can find two up to four baths per home. If you need a 3 bedroom home most of our homes will offer you one less bath than bedrooms…so here you will have two baths. If you are getting a five bedroom home the normal number of baths per home is four. It is generally one less than the number of bedrooms reserved.

The key stat that is not mentioned by our guests, but is very important is our low nightly rates. Kissimmee Vacation Homes offer the best value for the money. You will find that a three bedroom private pool home will cost about the same as a three star hotel. For all you get in renting a vacation pool home, one can understand why this is the lodging choice for so many coming to Walt Disney World.
