Kissimmee Housing: Florida Vacation Rentals

Just arrived at our home for the week...

When we found out that our Florida vacation was going to be with a few more people than we had expected, we decided to get a vacation rental home.  In a vacation we had taken6 years earlier with my parents and siblings, we had rented a vacation home, and it was great.  So, I naturally gravitated toward this option when we knew there were 4 families going on vacation!

Florida Home Vacation Rentals is a great company to work with.  We used them BOTH times for larger family vacations.  The staff is extremely helpful, and with each e-mail to see exactly how much we would be spending for the weeks we were looking at, they would e-mail me in less than a day, if not with in only a few hours.  And no matter HOW many homes I had questions about, they happily answered all of my questions.  And if they didn't know they answers, they found out quickly, and got back with me.

There are a HUGE selection of homes with anywhere from 2 bedrooms to 14!  And everything in between.  You can choose a condo home, or an actual home in a housing addition.  Most additions are gated, some are not.  You have the option of a heated pool, heated spa, grill, game room and much more. 

Being that there were 4 families going on our trip, we chose a home with 4 master bedrooms.  We also chose to have the pool/spa heated, and use of the grill.  We had a game room, which was great for the kids (and the adults!).  And you have a countless number of amenities, depending on the home you choose. 

In the end, going with a vacation home, each family ended up spending less than we would have in renting from a hotel in the area.  Which is always a plus with a large family!

So don't let traveling with your extended family scare you away from a vacation!  Check out (Florida Home Vacation Rentals), and look at their huge selection of homes!
