Things to consider if you are looking at hotels in Florida

When planning your dream vacation to Florida, the accommodation plays a huge part in how enjoyable you find your break. For example, staying in an overpriced, packed hotels in Florida can result in you struggling to relax and make the most out of your time away.

We have booked many villas for clients that previously considered hotels for their vacation, only to find that a villa offers much more space, freedom and value for money.

Some of the things we recommend considering when looking at hotels in Florida are:

  1. How many flights up will you be and how far down the corridor from the elevator is your room? Is there anyone in your party that struggles with mobility issues that this may affect? What view you will have from your hotel room?
  2. How far is to the pool from your hotel room? Do you have far to carry all your bathing items or return to if you have forgotten something! Do you have to get up early to get a sun lounger especially if you all want to sit together?
  3. How far to the hotel restaurant/snack bar, can you send the kids on their own if they want something? How expensive is it, will you have to set limitations on your budget for ices and chips etc.? Will the menu be to everyone’s choice?
  4. Where and how much will it cost you to park if you have a vehicle (a tip every time will also be expected by the valet/concierge) how far is it from your hotel?
  5. Will your hotel room be ready when you get here, or will you have to wait for it to be made up, can you keep it until you need to leave, how much extra will it cost?
  6. Will your room neighbours be as quiet as you need them to be? Will they be on the same sleep pattern as you, or slamming doors and making noise when they come in and disturbing your sleep?
  7. Will fellow hotel users respect common decency in regards to language especially around your children and will they follow social etiquette or will you or your children be barged and banged out to the way for them to get to the bar/food etc.

Pre-Holiday Checklist – What to Do Before Going On Vacation

Jetting off on a luxury vacation to Florida is exciting for anyone, however, it can be extremely stressful keeping organized without a pre-holiday checklist. When travelling to America there are a number of things to consider and organise before you are ready to relax.

As we have travelled to Florida so many times, we like to think that we have our packing and organizing down to perfection, so we thought we should share our top tips to help our clients stop worrying about their vacation.

Visa Application

Before travelling to the United States, you must obtain the correct Visa. Most commonly those that are a national of a Visa Waiver Program country apply for an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

We have previously explained everything you need to know about the ESTA application however make sure to apply at least 72 hours before you fly to the US as it takes this long for the application to be approved.

Get your boarding passes and passports ready

If you’re flying to Florida, you’ll need a boarding pass to access the plane and get through security. The night before you fly, get out your boarding passes and put them in an inside compartment of your hand luggage. This will make the morning of your vacation a little less stressful and ensure you don’t leave it at home.

Decide how you’re traveling to the airport

Whether you are planning on taking a cab or having a friend drive you, make sure that before you go on vacation you know how you’re making your way to the airport. Plan what time you need to set off and leave some extra time in case there’s a lot of traffic. Being organized will ensure you arrive at the airport in time for your flight.

Check your luggage allowance

Every flight will only allow you to take a certain amount of luggage with you and going over this limit will lead to added charges that can be very expensive. Make sure that you’re aware of your luggage allowance and only pack the things that are the most important.

Weigh your luggage on some household scales before you leave for the airport to make sure you haven’t exceeded your allowance. If you are over your limit, take some items out of your suitcase and put them into your hand luggage or leave some things at home. Our villas have bath towels that can be used poolside.

Pack your suitcase with all the essentials

The next thing on our pre-holiday checklist is packing your suitcase. When packing your suitcase, only take the items that you’re definitely going to need and try to leave space for any souvenirs you buy whilst on vacation. This will help you stay within your luggage allowance and means you can bring back things from your vacation without worrying about being charged an extra fee. Pack suitable clothing and any of your essential beauty products. Medications should be packed in your hand carry on in case your luggage goes missing.

Carry on restrictions

As you will already know there are restrictions in terms of what is allowed in your hand luggage, it is important to check your hand luggage before flying to prevent items from being removed from you at security.

Your airline will have a list of allowed items on their website.

Secure your home

Before setting off for the airport, check that all of the windows and doors in your home are locked and that any electrical appliances are switched off. This will prevent anybody from having access to your home whilst you’re away.

If your vacation is going to last longer than a few days, perhaps ask a neighbour or family friend to check on your home every few days to make sure everything is okay.

Why choose a Vacation Rental In Orlando over a hotel?

For anyone that has stayed in vacation rentals in Orlando previously, they’ll know that it’s a much nicer experience than staying in a hotel. Villas offer much more privacy and space and a relaxed atmosphere. You have the freedom to come and go as you please and enjoy the luxuries that a private villa has to offer.

Why are vacation rentals in Orlando better than hotels?

Hiring a villa in Orlando instead of staying in one of many hotels is a fantastic option for anyone wanting to save money, have more privacy and space and have the freedom to do things without time constraints. Here’s why:

  • Privacy

Unlike hotels in which vacationers from all over the world stay, villas offer much more privacy. There’s no need to be surrounded by others on holiday that you don’t know because, with a villa, you can sit back and relax with your loved ones in your own private space.

  • Freedom

Staying in vacation rentals in Orlando enables you to have more freedom than if you were to stay in a hotel. Returning to your room late at night after a day filled with activities or leaving early in the morning isn’t an issue when you hire a villa because there are no other guests you need to worry about disturbing. It also gives you the chance to sleep in without risking missing the breakfast buffet and you can check out of the villa at the end of your vacation at a time that suits you.

  • Value for money

Overall, if you’re traveling in a large group, staying in a villa can be much cheaper than renting out several separate hotel rooms because guests can split the cost of hire between one another. This can save each vacationer hundreds of dollars during their holiday. Furthermore, because most hospitality staff rely heavily on tips as their income, tips and service charges can be a huge cost over the course of the vacation. Staying in a villa without staff means that you’re saving hundreds of dollars on tips that can then be used for activities.

  • Space

When staying in hotels, space is limited due to a number of other guests and the size of each bedroom. There usually isn’t anywhere for the kids to run around and at busy times, the hotel can feel crowded. In comparison, vacation rentals in Orlando can offer much more space that can be enjoyed by all the family.

  • Home away from home

Finally, one of the best things about hiring an Orlando villa for your vacation is the fact that it can be treated as your home away from home. Whether you want to have a family barbecue by the pool or cuddle up on the sofa watching movies, you can do everything you would at home.

Why not hire one of our vacation rentals in Orlando?

We have hundreds of vacation rentals in Orlando available for hire on our website and because they are all privately owned, we keep the rental costs low. With private pools, games rooms and large gardens, our villas have a lot to offer. All our villas are under an hour’s drive from some of Orlando’s world famous attractions, which make them perfect for families wanting fun days out. Each villa can be previewed and booked on our website.

How To Write A Compelling Vacation Rental Description

A vacation rental description is one of the first things guests look for when searching for their dream vacation accommodation. When listing your villa on our website, it’s up to you to write a compelling description of your property that will catch the eye of possible guests. However, if you’ve never written a villa description previously, this can prove a challenging task.

As our way of simplifying the process, we’ve put together this guide that offers some hints and tips about writing the perfect description for your property.

How to write a compelling vacation rental description

  1. Make a list of key points to include

Before sitting down to write the description of your villa, make a list of the key points you would like to include. Doing this will not only act as a starting point for your description, it will also ensure that it contains everything you believe potential guests would like to know about the property. Most sites, including ours, provide you plenty of options to tell the guests about the basics of the property, the number of bedrooms, bathrooms etc, so think about a description that explains how the guest can enjoy your villa, just as you do.

  1. Have a compelling opening sentence

A vacation rental description is designed to inform possible visitors about what your villa has to offer so, in order for them to read on, it’s vital that you have a compelling opening sentence. Try to include one of the key features of your villa in the first line of the description that will grip the attention of the reader. If your opening line stands out, it’s likely they’ll continue reading.

  1. Focus on special qualities

If your villa has any special qualities that make it different from other vacation rentals, don’t be afraid to include them in your description. Does your property boast large living spaces? Do you have a home cinema as well as a games room? In most cases, vacationers have an idea about the features they would like their vacation rental to have and the qualities your villa has could be exactly what they’re looking for.

  1. Use creative language

Using creative language throughout your vacation rental description will help potential guests visualise the property at its full potential. The reader should be able to picture themselves and their loved ones staying in the villa during their vacation and imagine how they would spend their time there.

Choosing The Right Orlando Villa Rental For Your Next Vacation

When planning a vacation to Orlando with your loved ones, it can be difficult to choose the right Orlando villa rental that’s suitable for the entire family. Each person will have their own idea of what they would like their accommodation to include which can make it challenging to find a villa that matches everyone’s requirements.

After travelling to Orlando Florida regularly for the past 25 years, our Owners understand the difficulties many vacationers face when trying to find the perfect vacation rental villa. That’s why we’ve put together 5 top tips to follow when starting the search for your dream villa rental.

Top tips for choosing the right Orlando villa rental for your vacation

  1. Consider the number of travellers

The number of people travelling to Orlando with you will determine the size of villa you require. For example, if you are travelling with 3 couples and 2 small children, 3 double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom would provide plenty of space for everyone. Most villas range in size and are therefore able to comfortably accommodate groups of any size. There are also options to change the configuration of the bedroom layouts as some villas have more single beds or more double beds, or even bunk beds.

  1. Know the dates of your vacation

Secondly, it’s vital that you know the dates of your vacation. Neglecting to do this could lead to you falling in love with a specific villa that might not actually be available on the dates of your vacation. Whereas, applying exact dates to your search criteria will ensure that all the villas you are shown are available for you to book. Furthermore, the cost of renting a villa often depends on the dates of your holiday so knowing the dates of your trip will ensure you knowing the cost of your villa for your specific dates. Remember there may be many villas that are similar and yet have different rates for different dates.

  1. Decide on the location of your Orlando villa rental

Before booking your accommodation, consider where you would like your villa to be situated. All our villas have easy access to the major attractions such as Disney, SeaWorld and Universal. However consider whether you want the resort style villa, which will have access to onsite community facilities such as Water park, Clubhouse, community pool and sporting facilities as there is no point in paying for them if you won’t use them. Alternatively opt for a community style villa which are usually situated on more mature, lush and quiet communities which offer a more relaxing and laid back alternative to resorts.

  1. Choose your method of transport

Another consideration before choosing your rental villa is transport. A hire car, or your own car, is vital in Central Florida as the area is just so big. Walking to restaurants and bars is really not an option from the majority of resorts but local public transport can be used along with the odd taxi ride. Several resorts offer shuttle bus rides to the major parks so this can be an alternative to paying expensive parking fees at the parks and enjoying the relaxing ride back in the evening.

  1. Browse our website

Once you’ve thought about every aspect of your vacation, it’s time to start searching for your Orlando villa rental – and that’s where we come in.

Our website is filled to the brim with stunning, privately owned villas that the whole family will love. Villa’s come with a private pool, usually a games room and plenty of communal spaces for the entire family, our villas provide the perfect accommodation for everyone.

We have villas located in a variety of communities throughout Central Florida that are suitable for small and large groups and each villa is just a short distance from Disney World, SeaWorld and Universal Studios.

Whether you’re planning to explore the many golf courses that cover Orlando and would like to stay in a dedicated golfing community, or whether you’d like to have a holiday that’s filled with adventure and would therefore prefer to stay somewhere that offers lots of entertainment, we’ve got you covered.

We could have the Orlando villa rental you’ve been searching for

Electronic System for Travel Authorization: Everything You Need to Know

Due to the fact that we are experts in Florida travel and have assisted thousands of vacationers in finding their dream Orlando accommodation, we regularly get asked for information regarding the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

We appreciate that for many people travelling to Florida for the first time, understanding the process of applying for permission to enter the USA can be complicated.  That’s why we thought we’d create a detailed guide that highlights everything you need to know about ESTA.

What is the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA)?

ESTA is a web-based system that that is used to determine whether an individual has the right to travel to the United States of America. It was introduced by the US Department of Homeland Security to prevent undesirable citizens, from countries involved in the Visa Waiver Program, entering America.

How and when to apply for ESTA

The best way to apply to the Electronic System for Travel Authorization is by visiting their website and completing an online application form. Click “Here” to access the official ESTA website. There are many other sites but they all charge you a fee for something you can easily do yourself. In January 2018 the application fee is $14 per person and there is no need to pay any more than that.

You will be required to enter your passport details, however, the application process only takes a few minutes to complete. Please be very careful to answer the questions accurately as you will not be able to edit them once you have submitted the form and you can only do it once so be VERY careful how you answer the straightforward questions.

Upon completion of your application form, you will receive one of three responses. These are:

  • Authorization Approved – This means you have been approved to travel to the USA
  • Travel Not Authorized – This means you have not been approved to travel to the USA
  • Authorization Pending – This means your application hasn’t yet been approved or denied and you will receive your answer soon

Although in most cases ESTA applications are approved in seconds, it can take up to 72 hours to receive a response so we recommend submitting your application a minimum of a week before your departure.

What to do if ESTA is denied

If your application to the Electronic System for Travel Authorization is denied, you still have the option to apply for a non-immigrant visa at the US Embassy. You’ll be asked to attend a short interview at the Embassy, after which, if you’ve been approved, you’ll receive your non-immigrant visa.

If you think that you may be refused an ESTA then we highly recommend that you apply for it as soon as possible as obtaining a visa is a time consuming, and not guaranteed process.

Generally, you will be refused an ESTA if you have a conviction which resulted in a prison sentence anywhere in the World or your status in the UK is not permanent.

Now you’re up to date on what ESTA is and how to apply, are you ready to plan your vacation?

Now you know everything about the Electronic System for Travel Authorization and if you’re planning on vacationing in Orlando with your loved ones, it might be time to start searching for your dream accommodation.

We have hundreds of privately owned villas listed on our website that are situated just a short drive from some of Orlando Florida’s most famous attractions. With villas to suit every budget that the whole family will love, we know you’ll find your ideal rental villa.

To begin your search just go to www.wewantthatvilla.com and put in your dates on our homepage and browse through our wide selection of results. If you find a villa you love simply send us an enquiry. It’s that easy.

How To Make Your Vacation Rental Feel Like Home

When traveling long haul to a destination such as Orlando, we think it’s important that your vacation rental feels like your home away from home, ensuring that you can comfortably sit back and relax.

From bringing along personal possessions to spending some time in the kitchen cooking some of your favourite meals, there are a variety of things you can do to ensure that you feel comfortable at your villa for the duration of your holiday.

Top tips for making your vacation rental feel like home

  • Give everyone their own freedom and space

One of the many benefits of going on vacation and staying in a villa is that everyone has the freedom to come and go as they please – just as they do at home. Consider the resort-style villas where they will be plenty of outdoor sporting facilities and play areas. There may also be nature trails for a peaceful walk or just enjoy relaxing by the private pool, there’s enough space for everyone to enjoy their vacation their way.

  • Make your favourite meals

Cooking your favourite meals when staying in a vacation villa gives the whole family the opportunity to sit down for dinner in the warm Florida evenings. If there are any meals you often have at home, put the villa kitchen to the test by cooking them. Having freshly cooked food that you often eat at home can really help you and your loved ones settle in. It also helps with the vacation budget.

  • Bring any sentimental items

If you have any sentimental items that remind you of home, don’t be afraid to bring them along on your Orlando vacation. Dotting photographs of your friends and loved ones around the villa could make your villa feel much more homely. Also, because you and your family have the entire villa to yourselves, there’s no chance of any of your items going missing or getting damaged – unlike in a hotel.

  • Put away your clothing and possessions

You don’t have to live out of your suitcase for the duration of your trip. Properly unpacking and putting all your clothes and possessions away is a great way to make your vacation rental feel more like home. Most villas won’t contain the personal possessions of the owner which means you’ll have plenty of room to store your things.

Browse our website to find your dream holiday rental villa today

Each offering a luxurious private pool and all situated a short distance from a variety of attractions and local amenities, our villas offer the perfect accommodation for the entire family.

All our vacation rental villas are single family homes which means you’ll find the transition from your home to one of our villas seamless. We currently have over 250 villas listed on our website with more being added.

How To Visit Orlando On A Budget

As the home of many of Florida’s most world-renowned attractions, such as Disney World and Universal Studios, Orlando is an extremely expensive destination. This means that, for many people, vacationing in the area is a once in a lifetime opportunity. From enjoying meals out at local restaurants and spending the day at Disney World, to finding accommodation that’s suitable for the entire family, the costs just seem to mount up.

However, when planned in advance, it is possible to enjoy a fun-filled vacation in Orlando whilst sticking to a budget.

We’ve written this detailed guide that explains how you and your loved ones can visit Orlando on a budget whilst making the most out of everything it has to offer.

Here’s how to visit Orlando on a budget

  • Where to stay

Whether travelling in a small or large group it’s often more cost effective to rent a privately owned villa that provides enough space for the whole family instead of paying for several hotel rooms. Not only do villa rentals offer much more privacy but all guests are also still able to have their own bedroom. Additionally, all villas come with their own private pool and sun loungers which means you and your loved ones will never have to reserve your place by the pool. As you will know when staying in a hotel the costs just keep coming from dinks, snack, towels and ice creams etc. and all at hotel prices. Stock up at the local supermarket and enjoy all these at the villa.

  • Where to eat

When it comes to eating, one of the more cost-effective options when trying to visit Orlando on a budget is to cook meals from scratch and take picnics when heading out for the day. This will save you hundreds of dollars in tips and restaurant bills.

  • Places to go

Although visiting Disney World and Universal Studios is a must when vacationing in Orlando Florida, there are still a variety of attractions that the whole family can enjoy for a much lower cost. One of the best ways to experience these attractions is by getting a Go Orlando card. Go Orlando cards can be purchased for $55 per child and $69 per adult and grant unlimited access to attractions such as Madame Tussauds, the Coca Cola Eye and Gatorland.  Also, remember there are plenty of open spaces to explore and do not miss out on the waterfront of Kissimmee historical town.

  • How to get around

Hiring a car for transport is a brilliant option for families trying to visit Orlando on a budget. Having your own vehicle not only costs less than relying on taxis and public transport, it also gives you the freedom to come and go as you please. Always check a variety of suppliers and we would recommend the following as the best options;

CDW insurance- all quotes will include this and you do not NEED any further insurances to cover the vehicle. Buy more if you want to but you do not NEED it.

Fuel policy- Always pick the “Full to Full” option as then you only pay for the fuel you use. You collect the car full and take it back full. Don’t be fooled to “prepay the fuel” as you will be charged for an entire tank of fuel as per the manufacturer specifies so you will always never use the fuel you pay for. Don’t be fooled by them telling you that “..the fuel is cheaper through them..” It’s NOT.

Vehicle size- Go for the vehicle size you actually need. If your 4 travelling together then go for a mid-size car as more often than not the hire firm will not have that size so they will just upgrade you to a full size or SUV.

Upgrading: The car is a vehicle to get you about during your stay and you’re not buying it. If it does the job then that’s all you need as you will give it back in a few days so don’t be tempted, unless you are prepared to pay for it, to upgrade to the convertible or larger car.

Our villas are perfect for travellers on a budget

Our website is filled with hundreds of privately owned Orlando villas that are situated just a short drive from Florida’s most infamous tourist attractions. Each villa has between 3 and 8 bedrooms which makes them perfect for groups of any size. With some of the lowest prices around and our personalised service, renting one of our villas for your next Orlando vacation will be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.

Simply complete the search criteria on our website to start your search, select the villa of your choice and enquire! It really is that simple.

If you have any questions that you would like to ask a member of our team, feel free to give us a call on +44 1254 822803 or email us at findmeavilla@wwtv.us and we’ll assist you in any way we can.
