Orlando - Florida - The Ultimate Destination for Family Fun
Orlando - one of the few places in this world that needs no introduction. It’s a byword for thrills and fun - potentially a once in a lifetime holiday opportunity. That’s why our Orlando villas are expertly selected for their comfort and location, with the principle attractions in easy reach.
Orlando - Florida Attractions
From theme parks and aqua rides, to movie magic and animal safaris – Orlando's attractions are simply outstanding. When you choose a villa holiday to the sunshine state, the only decision you’ll be faced with is how to fit it all in. Take a tour of exotic marine life, then swim with the dolphins and other sea creatures; or hop on an adventure ride or two. When theme park thrills and spills get all too much, why not spend the day fishing, golfing or visiting Orlando’s tranquil botanical gardens. Or pack up the car, leave your Orlando villa rental for the day and head down to Florida’s spectacular coastline for the day to enjoy the many beautiful beaches and amenities on offer.
Orlando - Florida Shopping
Orlando is a shopping paradise. Home to a myriad of malls, themed boutiques, premium outlets - and everything in between - you’ll find every item, label and brand imaginable. When you’re in search of a holiday souvenir to remind you of your villa holiday, Disney Springs and Universal’s City Walk precincts stock every type of memento. Easy to find outlets are dotted around Florida’s Orlando area and offer designer fashions and branded goods at reduced prices. Everyday essential items can be found in the vast array of shops on Highway 192 – a short drive from our private holiday villas.
Orlando - Florida Food
Whether dining in one of the parks’ many themed restaurants or having a quiet romantic meal in your own private holiday villa, the options – and portions - in Orlando are endless. Highway 192 is renowned as the restaurant corridor and runs right through the middle of all the theme park attractions. Here, you will discover a wealth of eateries ranging from sizzling steak houses and oriental dishes to seafood and burger bars. In Florida’s Disney Springs, you’ll be spoilt for choice whether you want haute cuisine, fast food or regional, ethnic and elegant fare.
Orlando - Florida Nightlife
Villa holidays in Orlando have something for everyone, from comedy clubs and rodeo bars to cartoon character dinners. Fireworks, parades, spectacular live magic shows and performances from the famous Cirque du Soleil are all on offer - and ideal for family friendly holidays. Music ranges from rock and roll to jazz and live DJs, while massive multi-screen cinemas show the latest Hollywood films…and plenty of cartoons.

Bromsgrove Family (the eldest child is at school)
Fantastic parks (Disney and Universal)
Old Town, Orlando - some 'amusements' in very poor taste and not much else to offer in terms of shopping or restaurants.

Nottingham Family (the eldest child is at school)
We had a brilliant holiday in Florida. The theme parks (Disney and Universal) are great fun. And we had a great trip down to Key West for a couple of days in the middle of our holiday and an amazing trip watching dolphins and snorkelling on a reef.
In the second week the theme parks were crazy busy. Volcano Bay at Universal actually reached capacity the second time we tried to go there and we could not get in. The local roads got incredibly busy at times so we did spend a bit too much time in the car driving back and forwards to the parks. Everything (apart from petrol) was expensive. However, none of these things stopped us having a great time.

Stickney Family (the eldest child is at school)
Quite close to all the theme parks and 192 road to Kissimmee.
In my opinion Disney thinking to much about the bucks in there pocket instead of making it a magical experience,with all the hotels now all the parks need to be 3 times the size. Would not go back.

Disney. NBA and NFL the people of Florida
For me, coping with driving around with tolls and right turns at junctions. a personal bugbear is trying to remember to add tips and tax to the price you see, or sometimes don't.
