 Orlando Villa Rental
Topic Originator: JTH123  
Date:   Sun 23 Feb 17:48

Looking to rent a good 3-4 bed villa reasonably close to Universal Studios for October School holidays. Need a screened pool, bbq area etc.

Looking at all the usual rental websites but wondered if anyone on here knows of any little gems.

Have a look at the dibb forum. If you register you then are allowed to post your criteria, and villa owners can make you offers.

Not many villas with a screened pool up near universal. Would recommend the Formosa gardens area. So emerald island Windsor palms etc and prob as close to universal as you can get.

HomeAway and vr360homes are my usual go to, If they have plenty of reviews I will email them and do a deal direct as can save up to 20%. Don’t bother if it’s the management companies tho.

Second the dibb too. We got this years villa through Facebook. It’s looks free in October it’s on holidaylettings ref 136065 or Facebook under mickeysclubhouseflorida. Make sure you get the pool heat included in negotiated price upfront as Some owners charge and arm and leg for it.

As Berkley said. I found our place on homeaway and also on holiday lettings. However the owner had their own website so booked through that, which was 300 quid cheaper than homeaway, etc.

Not too much of a risk, as homeaway feedback etc was really good, and they were also on the dibb.

Not sure I'd book privately without convincing feedback on homeaway, etc.

Looks good parforthecourse, it’s quite a long way from disney etc with loads of traffic lights to negotiate along the 192 so make sure you look up the sherbeth road shortcut if your going into disney!

If you’ve not booked you car yet, I’d recommend alamo as you can do online check in then skip the counter so arrive and go straight to the garage rather than have the pleasure of queuing for the hard sell. Netflights have the best prices For alamo just now, loads of info and hints and tips on thedibb.

I have used DFCH for car hire every time going to Orlando, Andy who runs it is brilliant, you can book car hire and pay monthly if you want, if the price drops call him and he will amend the booking at no cost and refund the difference within a couple of days, I have saved a fortune doing this, you can do online check in, print your voucher and walk straight to the garage

He’s great Alf, he’s got a new website so you can rebook it yourself if it drops!

I had a booking with him to start with but netflights dropped price so came in £30 cheaper plus £20 Quidco in the end so took that. You get free cancellation with them too.

Home and Away ramped up their commission about a year ago, we normally go through them for our Tenerife accommodation but now contact the owner directly. Well cheaper!🤔
