Terra Verde Resort

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of vacationing in Disney World and the central Florida area, but you’ve never ventured to the Sunshine State because of the astronomically priced resort rates of Disney World Resorts. You probably never realized that vacation homes are available in Orlando at rates lower than most major hotel chains. For example, in the Terra Verde sub-division, which is located only a few minutes from Disney World, you can reserve a three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom town house for just $85 per night. If you have a larger group and a larger budget, Terra Verde has plenty of homes that can accommodate more than eight guests.
Medium-sized groups of 5-8 people can choose among hundreds of vacation homes featuring furnishings suited to their unique needs or preferences. For $142 a night you can book a five bedroom, three bathroom villa with room for 10 guests.
For $215 per night,half the price of the typical two bed hotel room at Disney’s grand Floridian Resort, you can reserve a vacation home with enough space to sleep 15 people. For example, on vacationhomerentals.com, you can book a luxurious house with 3 King Beds, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Double Bed, 3 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed and one crib, for rates as low as $1,450 per week. Notable amenities at the house include a game room, high speed internet,a full refrigerator, oven, washer and dryer, dishwasher, cable tv,dvd player and a game room.
Terra Verde offers a variety of activities to keep guests relaxed and entertained within their own rental community. After a long day at the theme parks, you can avoid the hustle and bustle of the city life and still enjoy an entertaining evening by visiting casting a few lines at the local fishing pond, working out a the gym/fitness center on site, or take the kids to the playground, where they can expend the rest of their energy.
Remember, renting a vacation home is a much cheaper and much more relaxing alternative to the cramped and costly alternative or renting a suite at a chain hotel or Disney Resort, but be sure to research each vacation home as much as possible before you commit to your rental.


Vacation Homes near Disney

This blog entry is going to deal with questions we get asked day in and day out regarding Vacation Homes near Disney…hope this helps.

What are the bed types in my four bedroom vacation home?

Note: all private pool homes in Orlando around the Disney World Theme Parks are owned by individual investors. Many of these are citizens of the UK. You will generally find that they will outfit the Master Bedroom with either a King or Queen Bed. The second bedroom will generally have a larger bed, but the third and fourth bedrooms will have twin beds each. The five bedroom models, at least the ones I have seen, will generally have two bedrooms with larger beds and twins will be in the remaining three.

How close will my home be to Disney World?

All of the 325 homes in our inventory are inside of 14 minutes to the Main Gate of Walt Disney World.

Where can I see pictures of my specific vacation pool home?

Obviously with so many homes in our inventory we would have to have a lot of pictures. Let me better explain it to you….The nightly rates for our executive and standard homes are far below the average for the the quality you are getting. The reason is that the reservation is blind as to the property in question. The management company receives your reservation and when they confirm your reservation they are guaranteeing you an executive home (if that is what you are trying to reserve) for the dates you requested. They will put your reservation in inventory and move it around several times prior to your arrival. Now, lets say they showed you pictures of the first home your reservation was booked for, but when you arrived here to pick up the keys at the Welcome Center, the home you received was different….you would think what’s up. What they are doing with the low nightly rates is to give you what you want and move your reservation around in their system to max out the bookings in a given month for all homes in their portfolio.

What is the difference between a standard pool home and an Executive Model?

First of all, there are some similarities; both of the homes were built by the same builder. The differences lies in what happened after the owner/investor bought his home. The standard home buyer went to a furniture store and bought relatively cheap furniture. He put in the lower grade of carpets, Venetian blinds are on the windows, the paint color throughout the entire house is white, the lesser grade of pool furniture is what he purchased and he put in a few smaller televisions. The Executive Home buyer was proud of his investment and saw himself using his home quite often. He went to the interior decorator of the builder and they chose color to put on the walls, the better grade of carpet was ordered, drapes on the windows, the better furniture package, the better pool furniture and the larger televisions. The difference for you will be the quality of your vacation pool home. When your wife walks in and says WOW! The desired effect of the investment was reached.

As W. Brewer of Lexington, KY said…”the key for us was to have the necessary room to spread out and enjoy the comforts of our home…. the private pool enhanced the overall vacation experience.”

Vacation Homes Near Disney

We were on our second night of our Disney Vacation and we had gone to the Disney Parks for the second straight day. Yesterday we went to Animal Kingdom and today we went to the Magic Kingdom. I never realized how hard it is to visit 2 theme parks 2 days straight. My calves and feet were seriously hurtin’ and I felt like I just ran a marathon. What I did not realize is that I may have just walked one in our 2 days at the Disney theme parks. The average person walks about 10 miles per day so I roughly put in about 20 miles on my tennis shoes. My feet may never forgive me.

Anyhow, we were very tired at the end of our day at the Magic Kingdom and everyone was hungry too. I don’t know about you, but I do not like traffic and long lines at the local vacation “hot spot” restaurant/tourist trap. That’s where my wife’s wisdom kicks in high gear. Before we booked our vacation, my wife thoroughly researched Vacation Homes Near Disney. She new ahead of time that we would need to stay close to Disney to have our best vacation because although it would be fun at the parks, it could be tiring too, and it would be best if we could get home quickly after our day at the Disney theme parks. One of the added bonuses of staying in Vacation Homes Near Disney is that the homes come with fully equipped kitchens so as soon as we got in town we picked up a few snacks and small meals and stored them in the refrigerator. I am so glad that we did this because after our day at the Magic Kingdom, I just wanted eat, relax, unwind and jump in the pool for a few minutes and and I was able to do just that. We sure had a great time at Disney this year and our vacation home near Disney made all the difference.
