A Home Away From Home In A Kissimmee Vacation Rental

Chances are you have never heard of the city of Kissimmee Florida but you’ve dreamed of going there. It is located next door to Orlando and is just a short drive from all the theme parks you dream about. Disney World, Universal Studios, Seaworld & Legoland are all a hop skip and a jump. Why I love Kissimmee as an alternative to Orlando is the range of accommodation choices. In Orlando, you are restricted to one hotel or another. Move a couple of miles and add some Kissimmee vacation rental properties to the equation and now you have choices. For a family or a group of friends, I think there is no better option than a Kissimmee vacation rental for your stay here. Even if you are solo like me it offers some amenities you can’t find at even the best hotels. Wanna join me?

For this stay, I have chosen the CLC Regal Oaks Resort. A gated resort community that provides security, awesome location and a great amenities for my three day stay in Kissimmee.

The main building houses the reception area, a restaurant and the common amenities like a gym and access to the large pool, sun chairs and there is even a small waterslide for kids. With a view of the pool from the gym, I am not sure I want to spend much time inside. You never know though and it is great to know it is there.

After check in I drive to my townhouse. A 2 level, 2 bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms unit complete with a full kitchen, dining room and a sunroom.

The first thing I do after checking out the place is a load of laundry. I’ve been on the road for a couple of weeks so any chance I get to wash my clothes I take. With the clothes in the machines, I head out to the local Publix grocery store. I want to stock up on some breakfast items and some snacks for my stay. I haven’t decided if I plan on eating out or dining in. It might be nice to cook a meal and put my feet up while I enjoy it.

The top floor has both bedrooms and 2 of the bathrooms. The master is very spacious and includes a TV and a huge ensuite bathroom complete with soaker tub.

My favourite room in the entire unit though is the sunroom. Entirely private with lounge chairs for relaxing and sunbathing plus each unit has its own hot tub. Needless to say, I spent a few lazy minutes here each night. Maybe with a glass of wine or two. I almost wished you were there with me, almost.
