With all the things on your plate–chaperoning field trips, driving to gymnastics and soccer–you barely had time to blink let alone plan a vacation.
At this stage of the year, is it too late to plan a getaway?
We say a resounding no. In fact, there’s still a multitude of Orlando vacation rentals available for summer vacation.
With the upcoming launch of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and of course the bonuses of Disney World and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (if you don’t mind driving an hour), Central Florida is a draw for families seeking budget-friendly resort-style condos or luxury villas.
Whether you’re planning a reunion or traveling with golf buddies, these Florida vacation rentals aim to please, thanks to roomy interiors, manicured grounds and sparkling pools. Many of them–like the Orlando villa pictured–are in gated communities that marry the comforts of a single-family home with the amenities of a high-end resort.
The seven-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom property sleeps up to 20 guests, and boasts all the extras to keep a crowd relaxed and entertained. Spa pool–check. Billiards table–check. Beach chairs–check.
And for the price, just $1,699-$1,799 a week through August, there may be money left over for side trips to the outlets or a local golf course, like the Grand Cypress or ChampionsGate.
Take it from previous renter Phillip Mohalley, “We greatly enjoyed our vacation and the property was everything it was advertised to be.”
