Orlando Magic Kingdom Rentals are specialists in the vacation rentals market within Central Florida. We have undertaken a pros and cons review of Hotel versus Vacation Rental stays and have come up with our main points to share with you.

At Orlando Magic Kingdom Rentals clearly we have a bias towards rentals and this will tell you why in our experiences;

Vacation rentals have a massive advantage over hotels, the later charging higher prices for smaller spaces and from time to time failing to live up to touristsí expectations. The credit crunch did not and will never impact the rental business as each of us needs a long awaited rest and vacation of a lifetime in which to recharge the batteries so to speak so folks always save and create their own holiday of a lifetime. We all work hard, and the 20 days per year vacation is important to all of us.

More freedom and space
Hotels are set up with pre-defined rules and regulations - ie breakfast is only served between the hours of X and Y and guests only really have the usage of the smaller space at all times.

Vacation rentals offer greater flexibility. It has lots of free space to afford a laidback vacation life for people who wish to stretch and sprawl lazily. Going on vacation in a large party means that vacation homes are affordable as you are paying for the home not per person.

Affording a host of extra facilities
Hotel ethos does lack the homey feel despite the managementís best efforts. Vacation homes are equipped with fully accessorized kitchens, optional hot tubs, library with books and perhaps a home theater, as well as board games, laundry facilities, complimentary TV and wi-fi and other additional benefits.

Provides privacy
Hotels are crammed with overwhelming number of tourists presenting you with moans and groans to rile you with overcrowded pools, constantly moving elevators, noisy guests and staff bustling about. Vacation rentals serve as excellent retreat to relax in a tranquil environment. Further, you are at absolute ease and need not worry about disturbing the sensibilities of other tourists. Within reason No one will ever complain about boisterous kids.

Situated at prime locations
In all likelihood, you are going to spot a rental nestled in the heart of excitement, located near strategic points of interest such as Orlando, or Kissimmee in Windsor Hills or Emerald Island for example, offering firsthand experience of local culture, and yet shrouded in privacy. You also have the opportunity to play golf, go shopping, go to the theme parks or simply laze around your very own private pool area. Once again you dont need to share a communal pool like in the hotels.

Far more cost-efficient
Proceeding on a vacation itself involves spending significantly on many incidental expenses coming your way. You will be wary of spending a fortune on accommodation and food. In hotels, you may have to move out of the resort to costly restaurants to have your meals if the hotel does not supply them. In a vacation rental, you can whip up a tasty meal with the ingredients at hand. Alternatively you can still eat out at relatively cheap prices if you pick the right restaurants outside of the tourists area perhaps.

Rentals afford you the comfort of enjoying the company of your entire family together not separated by brick walls as in a hotel. We also have situations where large parties of over 20-30 can holiday together in side by side homes. This would not be possible in a hotel !!! All of this can be on a shared basis - ie once again the vacation rental price is for the home itself and not per person so if you are spending lets say $2000 for a week - and you have a party of 10 adults - simple maths dictate that this is $200 for the week per person. Amazing value.

So if you are planning to buy a vacation home or turning your second property to a rental, you now know that you could be making a very wise decision !! or simply looking to rent ?
