There are lots of beaches to explore that are close to Tampa and Orlando. From our villa, they are only an hour away and with a cooler full of freezer frozen water bottles, cans and even some sandwiches. You can enjoy a day at the beach and come back to relax by our pool or just enjoy a quiet night in on our luxurious sofas. To find out more about the beaches that are nearby, click here.

Many families end up in Haines City and Orlando for one reason only - Disney World. With the main four theme parks, the two water parks and the other Disney attractions that make up the resort, there is plenty to see and do. When staying at our villa you can make the most of your time at Disney. Having breakfast in the villa or nipping to the clubhouse at Southern Dunes, you can be fuelled up for a whole day of exploring the theme parks without having to stop for lunch. With the park hopper passes, you can come out of the theme parks in the heat of the day and head to the water park to cool off before going back to the parks for the

afternoon. As dinner time approaches, you can head to one of the many restaurants in the parks or that Haines City has to offer before going back to enjoy the fireworks and nighttime parades at the Magic Kingdom. Disney isn't the only family friendly theme park in the Orlando and Tampa area. Only an hour away you'll find the delights of Busch Gardens at Tampa Bay. A theme park and zoo, there is plenty to delight both young and old for a whole day of entertainment, and with our villa, you can take a day trip to the park and be home in time for tea.

Not half an hour from our villa, you will find Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Sea World. Though they do not have a resort the size of Disney, these parks are well worth a visit. From the sea life you can see and the shows you can attend at Sea World to the attractions of the Atlantis log flume and Kraken rollecoaster, it is not a park to be missed. Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are packed with shows, rides and attractions to keep even the most serious of adrenaline junkies happy. A day out at any of these parks makes a nice change from Disney and all are a short drive from our door.

The last must see attraction for any family vacation in the Orlando area is the Kennedy Space Centre. Space is the final frontier and with a trip to Kennedy you can see the evolution of space travel for yourself. See what it's like to sit in the capsule on the shuttle. Marvel at the size of the Saturn V rockets and even take a tour to learn all about space travel from their expert tour guides. If you're very lucky, you may even get to watch a launch from the view area across from the launch pads at Cape Canaveral.
