Florida wouldn’t be Florida without Orlando and whilst at our villa many of our guests choose to make a trip to Orlando to visit the Disney, Universal and Sea World theme parks. It can be a very long and exhilarating day for the family but a tiring one, therefore we often suggest a stopover for one or two nights at one of the many budget hotels. This means you are more refreshed to enjoy the parks and the journey will be less of a chore. Of course when you return to the villa its back to relaxing times around the pool and at the beach.
Directly to the north the beautiful bays and city of Tampa is a 90-minute drive, and well within daily reach is the excellent Busch Gardens, Tampa. Theme park thrills alongside the a Zoological park.
