Kissimmee, Florida is a wonderful, top-tier family destination. Known for its sunny weather, shopping, and endless attraction options, the city is a mecca for vacationers throughout the year. That’s why whenever I hear someone is headed to Kissimmee, Florida I tell them to ditch the hotel and go for a vacation rental! Whether you’re traveling as a couple, your family or as a group, staying in a vacation rental far outdoes any resort or hotel stay!
Take a look at my top 6 reasons why I choose vacation rentals when heading to Florida and why you should too.
1) You get your own house
Yes!! When you rent a vacation home you are getting just that, A HOME! No more hoping the room will be big enough for your family of 5, no more asking for a pullout couch or that roll away bed. Renting a vacation home means you have space to be comfortable and the amenities of being at home.
The Fountains at Championsgate in Davenport, Florida is a gated community-style, vacation rental resort. Guest have the option of choosing between three and four-bedroom Mediterranean-style town home villas that include everything from WiFi internet access, Blu-ray/DVD movies, and Playstation® 3 games to large bedrooms.
2) You can bring your pet
No more boarding fees! Just like home, you can bring your furry friend along for the fun. Not only that but they won’t be cooped up in a single room when you’re gone and walks (if you have a dog) are much more enjoyable when you’re strolling through a neighborhood setting.
3) You feel safer
One of the main reasons I love vacation rentals is that I feel like my family is more safe and secure when staying at one. With a hotel, you’re right up on top of everyone’s rooms, the maid service is constantly in and out and it’s easy for children to get lost.
The Fountains at Championsgate is a gated community that only offers maid service upon request so if you choose to, you don’t have to worry about anyone going in and out but you. Deadbolts and high-security key locks are on every door leading outside so you know your family and belongings are safe.
4) The more the merrier
Vacation rentals know how to maximize space without sacrificing comfort. Most 3-4 bedroom rentals will have rooms with large or multiple beds in them and 2-3 bathrooms.
The townhomes at The Fountains at Championsgate were incredibly spacious and I loved the open floor plan of the downstairs area.
This kind of space allows groups of travelers or those meeting up with family to have more than enough space for each family or visitors if they stop by.
5) You can do laundry
This is a biggie for us. Being a family of 5 with 3 kids we are always stuck packing tons of clothing and bags which is not only a hassle but a major space eater in our car. With a vacation rental, you don’t have to pack as much because you can do laundry whenever you need to!
Now, I know no parent looks forward to laundry but when it means packing less and more space in your car, it’s a nice chore to have. The townhomes in the Fountains at Chamiponsgate all come equipped with a washer, dryer and a little starter pack of detergent.
6) They save you money
The biggest reason why I love and recommend vacation rentals, is that they save you money! When you’re saving for months or years to take your family to Disney World, you don’t want to be spending money on boring essentials outside the park like parking fees or laundry fees at your resort.
With a vacation rental, there are so many ways you can save on your vacation. A fridge means you can shop for meals and snacks at the grocery store instead of springing for expensive fast food, in-park snacks or restaurants every night.
Laundry can be done at home which saves packing and car space and no longer becomes an expensive service needed. Parking is free and more safe for your car because you have a garage. Your rental fee goes further than your hotel price because you’re getting 4x the space and area than you would in a small hotel room.
Whether you’re heading to Kissimmee, Florida for four days or two weeks, choosing a vacation rental will completely change the way you stay. Don’t get bogged down by hotels and go for vacation freedom!
