Reasons I Need to Go Back. Now.

Have you ever thought what your “other” career might have been?  Your path not chosen?  Before I was a stay at home Mama and Blogger, I worked as a Community Resource Consultant working with children with special needs and their families.  My career was my passion; my hobby was helping people plan their dream vacations. I gave up the career I loved to stay home with my girls full time, but never gave up that hobby.  I yearn to show my girls the world, and to spend as much time as I can vacationing with my little family of four.  When we can’t travel, I help others plan for their travel dreams!!
This is why I am thrilled to be able to continue to share the incredible find of Global Resort Homes.  A property management company based out of Kissimmee Florida that specializes in communities in and around the Walt Disney World area.  With accommodations ranging from 2 bedroom condos to luxury 7 bedroom homes there truly is something to fit everyone’s lifestyle and budget.  The best part, when you rent with Global you know you are guaranteed the backing of a professional team, there for you should you ever require assistance during your stay.  This is reason number one to rent via Global Resort Homes.
Here are my top five reasons you need to consider Global Resort Homes for your next Vacation;
1) The assurance that you have access to on site personnel that can help you with any of your needs throughout your Florida stay.
Global has been in business since 1993 and is one of the leading and most respected Orlando property management companies in Central Florida!
2) Space. A hotel room might be fun for a few nights, but with a couple of growing girls in our family there is nothing better then each child having their very own room!!
3) Privacy.  Can I put private house, private bathrooms and private POOL and HOT TUB here!  Woot!  There is something kind of magical about putting the little one’s to bed, cranking up the hot tub and relaxing with a very cold glass of wine, staring at the stars and taking a quiet moment to truly catch up.  Sigh.
4) A full sized kitchen.  You may not think having a kitchen on your vacation is required, but it can be a lifesaver!  I adore eating out, but there really only so many restaurant and take out meals a girls thighs (or stomach) can take!  What’s better then to be able to whip up a quick and nutritious meal for your family.  It’s great for you, great for them, and even better for the pocketbook.  We saved a ton of money on this latest vacation by eating breakfast “at home” before heading out on our daily adventure.
5) Don’t hate me but one of the best things about having an entire home at your disposal vs. a wee hotel room is a laundry room!!  When my girls were smaller, one load of laundry mid way through the week meant I only had to pack half the amount of clothing.  This time around, we arrived in Kissimmee in a rush, it was great to know we could wash, refresh or if we choose just go home with a suitcase full of clean clothes.  Can you imagine getting home with a suitcase full of clean clothes instead of dirty? Love.
5 1/2) (the half because I promised only five but must mention number six!) Location.  All of these beautifully appointed vacation homes are located mere minutes from the biggest attractions in Orlando.  Just a couple of miles from Outlet Malls, SeaWorld, and even closer to all things Disney.  Perfection.
These reasons and so many more are why I can honestly tell you, if you are looking for a vacation home in and around Disney World, you absolutely can not go wrong with Global Resort Homes.    This is also why I will tell you, you simply must enter my giveaway for a full week in a Global Resort Home!  Don’t delay, there is no catch, just a Blogger with a love of travel and blessed enough to be able to share this incredible prize!  Follow the link to enter my giveaway today!   Open to US and Canadian Readers. Closes April 17, 2013.

  4. @UnknownMiami We have vowed to try and take two family vacations a year! Nothing better 🙂

    This looks kind of amazing! I’m always kind of leary of renting a house on line, nervous that a house will actually be there when I arrive! Thanks for letting us know about Global Resort Homes.

  9. Such a wonderful vacation idea for families!

  10. Well I’m definitely keeping that in mind,case plan to bring the kids over when Annie is a bit older, and we are already planning!

  11. OMG…this is so beautiful! Vacation home rentals are the BEST!

  12. Victoria Ess says:

    I’m totally sold on this — this sounds like an amazing way to spend our vacation!

  13. I completely agree with the laundry room. We only rent condos and houses now and I always wash everything I can the last day and come home with clean clothes, LOVE!!!

  14. Traveling <3

  15. Holly Daniels says:

    These homes look great. Beautiful!! I think we’ll definitely be looking more into this for our next vacation!

  16. Thanks for the info. Global Resort Homes looks like a wonderful I like that I could prepare our family meals and cut back on expensive dining out (where the kids leave too much uneaten on their plates) Also, bedtimes and just relaxation time with the family is so much easier when you have your own home away from home. Offers so much freedom but with all the luxury. Love the pool too! Thanks again… we’ll be looking into this for our next Florida vacation!
