Save Money - Stay In An Orlando Villa
By Peter Kenny
Did you know that an Orlando vacation rental could cost the same if not LESS than a hotel or motel but offer you SO much more?
Imagine you are going on holiday with friends or extended family and there are 10 people (for example) in your party. You could squeeze 4 or 5 at a time into a hotel room - 2 in each bed plus a rollaway bed (which could be an extra charge). Picture it - all these people in one room, with one T.V. and one bathroom to share. There is no guarantee the rest of your party will be located in adjoining rooms.
Now imagine your own home for the length of your Orlando vacation. Your own car is parked on your very own driveway and you have a maximum of 2 people to a bedroom. Almost all bedrooms have their own private bathrooms PLUS a separate lounge PLUS a separate dining room/area PLUS your very own fully equipped kitchen where, if you wish, you can have breakfast before you are even dressed, with cool drinks/beer always on hand during the glorious hot Floridian weather. All of this can be yours PLUS your very own private swimming pool just for you and your guests to enjoy day and night.
Some homes have games rooms"
Still to take into consideration is the laundry facilities which all privately owned villas offer and nowadays it is fairly common (although not guaranteed) to find a games room in your vacation rental villa. This could include anything from a pool table to darts board; a treadmill to a foosball table. Sometimes these features are to be found in a converted garage or some villas even have a "bonus room, which they use for this purpose.
Of course you will also have the opportunity to barbecue outside near your pool deck, so this can add another dimension to mealtimes. There are plenty of supermarkets close at hand to your villa where you can select a wide variety of ingredients to include in your barbecue.
Many of the homeowners who rent out their vacation villas in Orlando have gone that extra mile and provided computer access and most have some kind of games console for the children. Normally there are pool toys left out at your disposal and quite often there are books for all ages, which you are welcome to use. Some also have board games and/or toys.
Look at how the prices differ"
Let us look at the costs involved. Take 3 hotel rooms at roughly $70-$90 per room per night. This totals $1470-$1890 for a one week's stay for your entire party. Compare this to the $1000-$1500 you could pay for a villa, then remember all the extra rooms and facilities you will have. In a villa it never feels crowded and everyone can have his or her own space.
