How to Rent

If this is your first time renting a vacation home, the following advice should make the whole process easier for you.


Determine how many people will be vacationing with you, then decide which size home will best suit your requirements. In most cases, you will find vacation homes to be more spacious with more bedrooms than the comparable priced hotels. Many vacation rental homes, villas, and condominiums are privately owned.

The next step is to determine the location and how far away from the area attractions.  Example, how far is it to Walt Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studio?

Confirm the dates and price...

Contact the owner directly to confirm that the dates for the vacation home is available and request a quote for your length of stay. Dates during school vacations and holidays should be booked in advance. This is the perfect opportunity to ask the owner any questions you may have about the home, what it has to offer and its location. Ask about assistance if there is a problem with the rental. Are they licensed? Are there any other cost or fees?

Most homes are privately owned with their specified terms and conditions, such as if smoking or pets are allowed. Ask about their rental agreement, cancellation and refund policies, if it is not posted.

After agreeing on the dates and price, the homeowner will request a deposit to secure your booking.  Do remember to make payment, such as deposit and final balance on time since owners may have declined other renters for the reserved dates.

Getting instructions and directions...

Upon receipt of final payment, the homeowner will issue you travel directions to their rental home and instructions on how to obtain the keys. Many rental homes use a lockbox and the owner will provide you with the access code before your arrival. Some owners use a management office where you can obtain the keys.

On arrival, generally you will find more instructions and information in the home. The owner has offered their home for your use and you will be delighted with all the comforts of their home.
