Five Reasons to Stay in Orlando Vacation Home Rentals | All Star Vacation Homes

I received a complimentary stay in an All Star Vacation Home during the Monkey Kingdom Event with Disneynature.

I’ve been to the Orlando area plenty of times over the past several years and the majority of the times I’ve visited, I have stayed in Orlando Vacation home rentals, like those offered from All Star Vacation Homes. Not only do these homes allow me more room to spread out, but it gives everyone traveling with me a space of their own, too. And when you’re traveling with kids, we all know how important space is.

When I’m looking for Orlando vacation home rentals to book for our vacations, I always start out my search by looking for homes in close proximity to the Disney area. Even if we aren’t going to Orlando specifically for Disney, everything else we like is in the same area. It’s nice to be close to all the action but not so close that we are cooped up in a small hotel room. All Star Vacation Homes makes it easy to search for homes by area, amenities, and more.

When visiting the Orlando area skip the hotels and look for Orlando Vacation Home Rentals.

Last month I was in Orlando for the Monkey Kingdom Event with Disneynature and everyone attending stayed in several All Star Vacation Homes in the Acadia Estates Gated Community. These homes were beautifully decorated and fully furnished, giving us a comfortable place to stay and rest after work hours. All we needed was a car full of groceries to fill the kitchens.

Five Reasons to Stay in Orlando Vacation Home Rentals

Planning a vacation in Orlando. Skip the cramped hotel rooms and book Orlando Vacation Home rentals for a more enjoyable stay.

Themed Rooms: Most of the Orlando vacation home rentals I’ve stayed in over the past several years have featured fun, themed bedrooms for the children. In this particular home from All Star Vacation Homes, the Mickey & Minnie Mouse room was elegantly decorated in red, white and black. Everything from the artwork on the walls, to the decorative pillows on the bed, everything was perfectly suited for a Mickey & Minnie Mouse room.

Private Pool: If I could have, I would have spent the entire time enjoying the private pool in this home. There were no whining kids, no jumping and splashing, just peacefulness in the pool. But since I was there for work, I actually had to work — some. At the end of the super long work days, I did enjoy the hot tub and pool, even in the pouring rain.

Full Kitchen: One of the biggest expenses of vacationing, aside from transportation and lodging, is food. Eating out three meals a day can definitely cause damage to the vacation budget. Being able to buy groceries and prepare your own meals is a great way to stretch your dollars to spend on other fun things during vacation.

Traveling to Orlando soon? Here are five reasons to stay in Orlando Vacation Home Rentals during your stay.

Laundry Room: What if I told you that it was possible to arrive home from vacation without suitcases full of dirty laundry? When you stay with All Star Vacation Homes, most if not all homes are furnished with a washing machine and dryer. Last October when we vacationed in Orlando for a week, we came home with suitcases full of clean clothes. It was so nice to not have to do loads of laundry before returning back to work life.

Square Footage: The most recent home we stayed in housed six adults (with a maximum occupancy of 14) and was almost 3,200 square feet. There were four master bedrooms, a theater room, billiard room and so much room for us to spread out and enjoy the space. Anyone up for a game of pool?

Hotels definitely have their place and I use them quite often during my travels, but when I’m traveling with my family, it’s hard to beat the value of staying in a vacation home rental. I like to get the best bang for my buck and I feel like I can do that by staying in a vacation home.

When you vacation with your family, where do you prefer stay?

    You have no idea how much I would love to stay there. I have been dying to get back to Orlando and this sounds like an awesome place to stay!

  2. 2

    We just started staying in homes versus hotels a couple of years ago. We decided that it is quite enjoyable and more relaxing than a hotel and this looks like a great place to stay for the Orlando area.

  3. 3

    I would LOVE to stay in a house instead of a hotel. It’s so much more private, and the rooms you posted are great!

  4. 5

    My daughter’s lacrosse team rents a couple of these houses when they go down for their Spring Break games. They love them and the proximity to the playing fields AND Disney World and other attractions.

  5. 6

    I would have never thought to rent a home instead of stay in a hotel. I think I would enjoy my vacation more in one of those rentals.

  6. 7

    I’d love to stay somewhere like this! It’s so convenient to have all that space, kitchen and pool!

  7. 9

    This house is a vacation all on it’s own. My family won’t want to leave!!

  8. 10

    Sounds good to me. I like all five. But now to the one reason I can’t – no money. If you could fix that for me I”d be all set!

  9. 11

    Now that I’ve read about your stay, something like this seems much better for families than a simpl hotel room. My kids are always playing with buttons and remotes at hotel rooms and it’s all we can do to get them not to touch things but a vacation home seems more accomidating for kids.

  10. 12

    I think this is such a good option! Much better than expensive hotels. Especially for families like ours with lots of kids. More freedom and not having to worry about noise etc!

  11. 13

    What a beautiful place to stay! I see that rentals are becoming more and more popular than hotels and I definitely think I would go this route with my family when traveling, too!

  12. 14

    My family would love to stay here!~ The kids would flip for the Disney themed rooms!

  13. 15

    I have never stayed in a rental home but from the sound of it it sounds like I would enjoy it much more then a hotel. I definitely would take advantage of that pool!!

    That does sound really nice. I’d love to bring the family to stay in one.

  15. 17

    I love Orlando! My family and I visited a few months ago.

  19. 21

    This vacation home is beautiful! I definitely would love to be pool side most of the time!

  20. 22

    This vacation home is so nice. I love having a home away from home when traveling. It’s especially nice to be able to cook meals and not have to eat out the whole visit.

  21. 23

    This looks like a great house to stay in on a vacation. I like staying at a home rather than a hotel – my family needs the amenities.

  22. 24

    My BF is thinking about buying a home in Orlando and rent it out to tourists. Great idea I think

  23. 25

    We stayed in a vacation home rental once, and we loved it! I need to remember to try that when we go to Orlando.

  24. 26

    That looks beautiful and some place I’d like to stay. Who knew, we always think to look at hotels when booking vacations

  25. 27

    This looks like so much fun!

  26. 28

    I always think of on vacations to get a hotel but this is an awesome alternative! I love the pool!

  27. 29

    We went to Disney recently and stayed on property and my biggest complaint was lack of room. I think next time we go we’ll look into this option!

  28. 30

    I love Orange County. My German grandparents live there and all they do is get lost and find new toll booths.

  29. 31

    Great post! I booked marked it for our trip to Disneyland next year with friends!

  30. 32

    We prefer to stay in rental homes when traveling because it gives everyone more space and saves on the belly and budget to not eat out! Having a kitchen is nice on vacation.

  31. 33

    We usually stay in hotels because we are less likely to leave belongings behind. However, I LOVE the space that a vacation home rental provides. I especially love that there are private pools with this one!

  32. 34

    Wow this is pretty much a dream vacation! I don’t know if i would leave the house!

  33. 35

    I much prefer rental homes over hotels, too. Much more personable and relaxing. Thanks for the tips.

  34. 36

    I’m loving that private pool! I prefer to rent a home or condo on vacation, so we can all have our own space.

  35. 37

    What a beautiful home! I would love to go stay in an Orlando vacation home!

  36. 38

    A private pool and a full kitchen? Count me in!

  37. 39

    How beautiful! I normally stay at an affordable hotel (allows me to spend money on other things), but I wouldn’t mind renting out a vacation home sometime.

  38. 40

    This is a great idea and I love that we can have a home away from home feel, especially the kitchen and pool.

  39. 41

    We stayed in a home like this a few years back and loved it. It was a vacation where aunts, uncles, and grandparents went-we had such a fun time in that house!

  40. 42

    That place looks gorgeous! Makes me wish I was there with you guys.

  41. 43

    Renting a house is so much more convenient than staying in a hotel for the week. Plus, it gives the kids room to spread out and have their own space.

  42. 44

    That looks like a great place to stay! I love all the personal touches and that pool table would be FUN!

  43. 45

    Sounds like a great investment for vacation!

  44. 46

    Like a home away from home only better because you’re on vacatoin woot! And it’s in one of my most favorite cities too. I love it!

  45. 47

    I haven’t tried a vacation rental before. But they sound like a great way to enjoy a vacation.

  46. 48

    Go to know! These look like a great place to stay!

  47. 49

    We just had a vacation rental in Florida. Way better than staying in a hotel!

  48. 50

    I’ve never stayed in one of those vacation homes, but they look pretty nice! I would definitely consider staying there if I visited Florida.
