Parks, shopping, dining and beaches…. Your Florida holiday to-do list is probably pretty endless? With so much to do and limited time, where you choose to stay can make all the difference. Start your holiday in Kissimmee, and you’ll have easy access to all of the delights that Florida has to offer.



Kissimmee is the Vacation Home Capital of the World®. Hands down, this is the best place to head to for that home-from-home holiday that so many of us crave. With fully fitted kitchens, spacious lounges and outdoor pools you might never want to leave. Kissimmee is also home to some of the biggest and best villas imaginable, so you can live out your wildest A-List fantasies.

Reunion Resortreunion
This is the most prestigious resort that the Orlando-area has to offer. The homes here will take your breath away, they’re large, luxurious, located close to Walt Disney World® Resort and available for your Florida holiday. With a villa in Reunion, anything is possible, think indoor cinemas and bowling alleys, huge pools, outdoor kitchens and cosy fire pits. It’s the ultimate treat, and with 12+ bedrooms, you can bring the whole family!

ChampionsGate Resortc gate
Another incredible community of villas is ChampionsGate Resort. The tree-lined streets are picturesque, and the homes themselves are a sight to behold. The modern interiors and comfortable furnishings will leave you eager to return to your villa every time you leave. The on-site club house also has as a small movie theatre where you can choose the film, an 18-hole golf course and large pool with lazy river and cabanas

Disney Area Villasdisney area
For something a little more humble, but comfortable nonetheless, Disney Area homes are a great option. With the majority of these homes in the Kissimmee Area, you’ll be no more than 25 minutes from the entrance to Disney, and just a short drive from all the entertainment in Kissimmee and beyond.



When you step out from the serenity of your villa, it’s good to know that fun and entertainment can be found with ease. Kissimmee has everything you need on your doorstep, from the biggest and best theme parks, places to shop and dine and wildlife that will leave you speechless.

The Big ThreeDisney
Walt Disney World® Resort, SeaWorld® and Universal Orlando® Resort are within easy reach when you holiday in Kissimmee. You can be at the gates as soon as they open, and then retreat to your villa for some much needed recuperation and a home cooked meal at the end of the day.

Fun Spot Americafun spot
Kissimmee’s very own theme park, Fun Spot America, is home to the world’s tallest 300 degree SkyCoaster. It is also home to an arcade centre, go kart track, classic rides such as bumper cars and 8 rides suitable for the little ones. Walking distance from many of Kissimmee’s family favourite resorts such as Regal Oaks, this is a fantastic entertainment spot to have on your doorstep.

Shopping and Dining2
No trip to the states is complete without a spot of shopping, and when you stay in Kissimmee, the options are endless. Kissimmee’s very own Old Town has lovely boutique shops, restaurants and entertainment. If brand names are what you’re after, head to the Florida Mall and for a spot of bargain hunting, Orlando Premium Outlets are nearby.

Head Outdoors1
For nature lovers, Kissimmee has it all. Despite being so close to the built-up parts of Orlando, you can still get lost in the everglades, enjoy an aerial view by hot air balloon or even spot a gator or two. Wild Florida Airboats & Gator Park is a must for any Kissimmee stay. Zoom through the everglades on an airboat whilst you spot the local wildlife then head into the park where gators, monkeys, hawks and more are waiting to meet you.



Just because you’re holidaying in the Orlando-area, doesn’t mean the beach is out of reach. Staying in Kissimmee puts you in the perfect place for spending a day or two at the beach, or even taking to the seas and heading on a cruise.

Gold Coast

Gulf Coast

One of Florida’s best love beaches, Clearwater is under two hours away from Kissimmee. The beaches are impeccable, the waters are inviting and the climate always tropical. Whilst you’re in the area you could even swing by Busch Gardens in Tampa to meet the animals and enjoy some of the thrilling rides.
