When the world came to a halt, we changed our day-to-day lives. Now we are rethinking the vacation planning process. Known for being minutes away from Central Florida’s greatest outdoor adventures and eco-tourism attractions, Kissimmee has the largest collection of vacation home rentals in the world, with more than 50,000 options of its 70,000 accommodations.

For those looking to achieve vacation nirvana while practicing social distancing, look no further. Here are the benefits of taking a road trip to the Vacation Home Capital of the World®:

Privacy and Comfort

When staying at a vacation home, contact with others is very limited. Most homes offer self-check-in to ensure a near contact-free experience. With all the additional space of a two- to 15-bedroom home comes room for multi-generational family members, so everyone can join the fun. No need to share crowded rooms — vacation homes give everyone their own space, as well as common areas to gather and bond such as indoor game rooms and backyard pools to enjoy the Florida weather. And if you’re working from home, you’ll even be able to find a quiet office space.


The best part about a vacation home is the feeling of home. Many of Kissimmee’s resorts offer add-on options like grocery delivery, personal chefs for in-home cooking, take-out options from the resort’s restaurants, and more. Not to mention, resort-style amenities including housekeeping prior to check-in.

Themed Rooms

Kissimmee’s vacation homes offer themed rooms, in-home movie theaters, children’s play areas with slides, game rooms, beds inside castles, indoor treehouses, and so much more. There’s plenty to keep everyone entertained in the house, let alone Kissimmee’s great outdoors.

Affordable Cost

You might think renting a vacation home is expensive, but it can be quite affordable. Kissimmee’s vacation homes vary in price, with an option to fit every family’s budget and style. Prices per night start at $100.
