Home Sweet Vacation Home:

Condos, pool homes, high-value villas… it’s easy to find your home-away-from-home in Kissimmee, the Vacation Home Capital of the World®. We're excited that Kissimmee vacation homes are starting to open their doors again. For the most updated information, visit our openings page here. Each vacation home partner is working diligently to follow safety guidelines and welcome you back to make new memories at our sunny destination.

We know choosing your home base for a long weekend, family vacation, or theme park adventure takes a lot of careful planning. To help you decide where to choose (hint: it’s all about the itinerary), when to book (earlier is better), and more vacation home tips and tricks, we put together this handy guide below. Enjoy!  

A Vacation Home Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank

Many people worry that a vacation home rental will cost a pretty penny. But that couldn’t be further from the truth! In Kissimmee, you have access to the largest collection of vacation home rentals in the world that includes a home for every budget and style. 

Location, amenities, and seasonality can all impact your vacation home rental rate. Once you have your list, you can easily cost and compare homes during your search. And before you start that search, think about what’s important to you and your family. Some good questions to ask yourself before you begin...

Choose a Renter You Can Trust

Equally as important as the vacation home itself is the company that rents it to you. We recommend choosing a renter with a strong reputation. This ensures that if something goes awry, or the vacation home isn’t to your liking, you know any questions will be cleared up for you. Jeeves Florida Rentals, Global Resort Homes, Reunion Vacation Homes, and Magic Village Resort are just a few of the rental companies in the Central Florida area that have been serving vacationers just like you for years. You can view all the vacation home renters offering beautiful places to stay in Kissimmee here. Many of our vacation home partners also offer seasonal deals, so be sure to check out our Deals & Discounts page when booking. 

Location, Location, Location

Staying in Kissimmee means your home base will be super close to some of the world’s most legendary theme parks,incredible outdoor adventures, and shopping and dining galore!  

The beauty of staying in a vacation home for your Central Florida vacation is that when you need a break from the hustle and bustle of all the awesome area attractions, you can switch gears and head home for an afternoon dip in the pool, or take a nature break on an airboat adventure, fishing trip, or hot air balloon ride. 

If you have an idea of how you’d like to spend your vacation, take a look at the vacation home communities closest to the top spots on your itinerary! This will ensure your time is spent doing the activities you love.

Start Your Search Early

Are you planning a much-needed getaway, summer vacation, or holiday celebration? You’re not alone! Central Florida is a popular vacation spot so it’s best to plan ahead. Booking early not only means you’ll secure your dream vacation home, but you might see more favorable rates as well. 

Pick Your Perks

When you stay in Kissimmee, thanks to the incredible amount of homes and unique décor for each and every one, you have access to some out-of-the-ordinary possibilities. Princess- and space-themed bedrooms, outdoor kitchens, in-home theatres, swimming pools… the list goes on. If you can imagine it, it’s probably in a Kissimmee vacation home.
