Red face What would you recommend for off site resort/family home for 4 adults-2kids

Hi there -
We have always stayed at value resorts, except for our most recent visit to Saratoga Springs. We loved the amenities and space of the 2 bedroom villa.

We want to go back, but cut the costs a bit compared to the Disney 2 bedroom rates.

What would you recommend for a 2-3 bedroom villa/townhouse that is very close to Disney that has great amenities, clean and friendly service?

Thanks

Marriott Grand Vista and Sharaton Vistana Villages are both very nice I have stayed at both places in the past.

We just returned from a trip to Orlando yesterday. This was not a Disney trip. as we just returned from a Spring Break trip there. We stayed in a 3 bedroom at Cypress Pointe. It is just down, maybe 1/2 mile, from Crossroads area and the entrance to Downtown Disney. I was a little nervous about the stay there, as I had never been there before. It was BEAUTIFUL! Very nicely appointed, spacious, friendly service. Literally a 5 minute drive into the Disney gates. We own at Orange Lake, which is beautiful, as well, but it is a little further out, down 192. I also found a Hilton resort I would love to stay in...Hilton Parc Soleil...just down Palm Parkway...not far from the Crossroads area...looks like a gorgeous resort. Good luck with your planning!

I would suggest going to www.vbro.com and looking at Windsor Hills rentals. We just stayed in a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom townhome with a private pool. You also get a full kitchen and washer/dryer. The drives to the parks ranged from 7 minutes (Animal Kingdom) to 16 minutes (Magic Kingdom).

When booking at a resort that is a vacation club, do they pester you to go to the sales pitch?

You can try and find an affordable hotel room by using Crispy Hotels. I always do so to save as much as I can!

I hope this helps!

Cheers!

You can find rentals for Wyndham Bonnet Creek, Cypress Palm or Star Island through Extra Holidays & they are all timeshare units. If you search this thread for Bonnet Creek, you can find another way to rent units there. I cannot remember the name of the companies people have talked about on here.

We're her with 4 adults and 2 children (14 & 12) and staying at dreams villas http://www.dreamsvillas.com/. We love it! Easy drives to the parks and great accomodations. We have 4 rooms, 3 full bathrooms, full kitchen and it was about $130 per night!

Message me if you want details!
