There are a great many vacation homes in the general area (Orlando, Kissimmee, Florida) of Walt Disney World.  The advantages of renting a vacation home or vacation villa are many:   You will typically pay as much for an entire villa as you would for a double-occupancy hotel room. You don’t have the choice between overpriced hotel food, and a mad scramble to get a starving family out to the nearest Denny’s. You can come and go as you please, without interference from hotel clerks or chambermaids. You don’t have the joy of being woken by rowdy teenagers running up and down the hotel hallways at 2 a.m., or other guests slamming doors and screaming at each other in the early hours. The villa will almost certainly have a private, heated swimming pool. We are often asked “what is the difference between a home and a villa?” The answer is: not a whole lot!  A home is somewhere where you keep all your “stuff” – clothes for all seasons, books, toys, tools, stationery, food, wine, spices, and all kinds of long-term storage.  Usually, a home will have living areas designed for long-term use, frequently with two or more living areas, so that different members of the family can pursue their own interests without disturbing the others. A villa, on the other hand, is typically designed for short-term use, with the emphasis on sleeping accommodation.  A five-bedroom, three-bathroom home will often be a pretty grand affair, with three of more living areas, and a three-car garage, designed for a family of four or five people, with perhaps a grandparent living in.  A 5-bedroom, 3-bath villa, on the other hand, is more likely to be a relatively modest house, built specifically for short-term occupancy of 10 or more people, and no need for long-term storage of all their “stuff”, which they would have left at home.
