Also noteworthy is the fact that some of these homes are located in gated communities and have an alarm system, as well as a concierge available 24 hours a day. They are, too, for the most part, conveniently located near supermarkets and restaurants (many of which deliver), and are a short drive to the area’s major attractions.
“Orlando-area association members offer fully furnished vacation rentals to travelers and their families nearby to all of Central Florida’s major attractions, including private pool homes, condos, and 2-story townhomes. Vacation rentals are available from two to seven bedrooms (1,050 to 4,000 sq. ft.) and up to six bathrooms, all under one roof,” says Trover. “Many vacation rentals also come equipped with extra amenities for private recreation in-home, including game rooms, billiard tables, and/or home movie theaters with cinema-style seating.” Trover adds that pet-friendly, handicap accessible, and eco-friendly homes are also available through various member companies.
Additionally, “Most Orlando-area members of the VRMA boast partnerships with local vendors to offer guests discounts on tickets to Orlando attractions, golf courses, as well as special rates on car and equipment rentals, to name a few,” Trover says.
