There are literally hundreds of vacation homes for rent in the Orlando area. As you consider which one to rent you’ll run across two main options: picking the specific home you want, or setting the parameters and letting the company you rent from choose the specific home you’ll be in. Both options have their pros and their cons. Let’s explore both.

Letting your property management company pick is probably cheaper

The biggest advantage to letting your property management company choose your house for you is that it will almost always be cheaper to do it this way. Remember that you’re not going into it blind. You’ll be able to choose the number of bedrooms, whether or not it has a pool, etc. You can also work with a company like that will guarantee it’s within a certain number of miles from the Disney parks.


Choosing your own home assures you get exactly what you want

If you have very specific requirements then you’ll want to pick your own home. You’ll have the peace of mind of choosing the exact location, the exact size of the pool – exactly what you want! Often people choose their own home if they plan to cook large meals and want to ensure they get a large kitchen, if or they are looking for the most luxurious of the luxury homes for rent.

Getting as close as possible requires choosing the home you want to rent

While any reputable Orlando vacation home rental company will guarantee their homes are within a certain distance from the parks, if you want your home to be as close as possible then you’ll want to choose your own home. Generally you can get a guarantee that your home is within 12 or 15 minutes from the parks, and for many families this is good enough. However, if you want to be just a 5 minute drive away, it may be worth paying more to choose a home that’s as close as you can be.


You can’t go wrong if you choose the right company

As long as you rent your vacation home from a company with a long history of satisfied customers, a company who takes good care of their properties, and a company that delivers what they promise, then you can’t go wrong no matter if you choose to pick your own home or you let them pick for you. If you want more control over the home you vacation in, then choose the one you want. If you’re looking for the best value, then let the company choose for you. The choice is yours, but either way – you’re in for a magical vacation.
