What is a vacation home?
A vacation rental home is a privately owned house, town house, or condo, rented out to guests when owners are not using it. Typically this is for short-term intervals — anywhere from three days to a month or two. Generally, the homeowner does not live in the house, but instead owns it for investment purposes and occasional private use.

How close are the homes to major theme parks?
Our homes are closer to Disney, a 10-20 minute drive and to Universal, Sea World, Wet N Wild and Aquatica it will be approximately a 25-30 minute drive. This is a very easy drive as all our homes have a major interstate exit close by.
What do we have to bring?
Our vacation rentals are self-catering, which means they are equipped with towels and sheets, a well-equipped kitchen including silverware, dinnerware and basic cookware. You will have a roll of toilet tissue in each bath, small soap bar, bin liner for all trash bins, and a dishwasher pellet. Guests should bring their own personal hygiene items, including wash cloth or bath sponge; cleaning and laundry supplies can be purchased at nearby shops. (Major retailers offer travel size products for your convenience)
Are the homes non-smoking?
Yes, in accordance with state law, all of our vacation rentals are non-smoking. Smoking is only permitted outside in the pool deck area or around the outside of the home. Please pick up your used cigarette butts and dispose of them properly.
Do you have an emergency line in case there are any issues?
Yes, we have an emergency line available 24 hours for major emergencies only. If your issue can wait until the next business day kindly press zero when calling and leave a voicemail and your issue will be handled the next day, our staff answers this phone so we ask for consideration with issues that can be handled the next day. If you are lost and need directions we suggest you stop at a gas station and seek help getting to your destination as the emergency phone attendant may not be familiar with the local area.
