I remember vacationing in Florida and staying in a condo as a kid. Best trip ever, and we didn’t even go to Disney World. As you all know, I am a sucker for a good hotel. But you know what’s even nicer? Staying in a condo or a resort home. Particularly if you are travelling as a family. I’m thinking, staying in a home away from home can be the difference between suffering through seven days of kiddie-meltdown, and having an awesome family vacation.
So I’ve had my eye on Global Resort Homes for awhile now. I watched in eager interest as Jen from Mom vs. The Boys and Nancy from Whispered Inspirations wrote about their stay in at Global Resort Homes. But even prior to that I’ve browsed their site many times, plotting out an Orlando vacation. And seriously the only thing that’s held me back from booking a trip is the cost of airfare and the fact that my husband wants to wait until the girls are a little older to visit Disney.
Browsing through their site I found the cost of staying at Global Resort Homes surprisingly reasonable. Actually more like shockingly lower then I would have expected. The prices are on par with a hotel stay, and you get so much MORE then you would with staying in a hotel. The larger homes are more expensive, but then they fit more people. Which makes then perfect for travelling with friends or extended family. They even offer 7 bedroom homes that can sleep up to 14 people. Can you say family reunion?
Add in the fact that all of these homes are in lovely gated communities complete with private playgrounds, swimming pools and a community clubhouse. Many of the homes also have their own private pools and games rooms. Also, and maybe I shouldn’t admit this, from staring at the photos it looks like most of the homes have a nicer kitchen then the house I currently live in.
Sounds great right? I’m planning a trip for next May. But one lucky Canadian can win a 7-night stay right now! This is one seriously amazing prize package; it includes a 7-night stay in a Global Resort Homes Vacation Home, admission for four to SeaWorld Orlando, a Hot Air Balloon ride and Boggy Creek Air Boat Rides, plus a credit for a seven day car rental. Good luck!
