Staying In A Luxury Villa In Orlando With Contempo Homes

As a travel blogger, I have to make a confession, I've actually never stayed in a villa. I really don't know why either, so when Contempo Homes invited us to try out their villas in Orlando Florida I could hardly say no, I mean, would you?


Contempo Homes have a range of accommodation from 3 star to 5 star accommodation in the Orlando area. Each villa is privately owned and furnished to the owners' specification and then rented out by the company. The villas are in a range of communities through the Orlando area including Tuscan Hils, Highlands Reserves and Championsgate.



The villa we were reviewing was based in Providence Golf Resort. This private gated community is set within 2,200 acres of well-manicured lawns, beautiful lakes and palm tree-lined roads. In addition to the beautiful golf course, Providence also offers an exclusive clubhouse just a short walk from most homes. 


The villa in the Rosemount Woods area of the Providence Golf Resort was built on one level and had 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, as well as a garage and drive, lounge and dining area with kitchen, laundry room and it's own private pool.












Bedroom 1 and bedroom 2 uses a shared bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. The decor is classic white walls and neutral tones and both these rooms have single beds. Everything was immaculate and clean. Complimentary toiletries were provided for a couple of days as well as towels. If you are staying longer I would suggest you bring your own toiletries.






Bedroom 3 has its own sink, shower and toilet ensuite. 








Bedroom 4 again has it's own shower, sink and toilet too.


Each bedroom has wardrobe space as well as a TV with cable TV channels. We used the Chromecast on the TV to watch Netflix, so just sign in with your Netflix account to use.





The lounge area is beautifully decorated with a dining table just off the lounge and an open plan kitchen behind the seating area.









The kitchen area had everything you would need to cook a simple meal. There was a full oven, microwave, coffee machine, blender, toaster and kettle. The fridge freezer was large and contained an ice machine too.



It is always useful to have a washing machine and dryer especially to freshen up your clothes in the Orlando heat and the villa had both as well as an iron and ironing board.  We used the washing machine and it was excellent. One small point there was no washing line but we improvised and put our clothes in the garage to dry. It was so nice to be able to do our washing and come home without a load of clothes to wash.



The welcome pack was really useful. As well as it containing that important information we all need - the Wi-Fi code, it also contained how to operate the appliances, information for check out, and local area attractions and restaurants and emergency information.


A major plus point of this villa was the pool area. The pool area had a table and chairs for dining as well as sun loungers. It was so nice to relax in the pool after a day enjoying the theme parks. 


Safety is obviously important to the villa owner and there was a fence around the pool to keep little ones from wandering in unsupervised. Of course, never leave your kids unattended near water. The pool had a netting around it to get mosquitoes out and we found it really effective. 


What we both liked about the villa was the space. In fact, it is probably just as big as our flat at home! Having more than one bathroom was a huge plus point too as Mr W does like to hog the bathroom at home. This makes it easy to get ready if you are going out early to get to the theme parks. The garage was also a bonus to keep our rental care safe, although this is a gated community and we felt very safe at all times too.



If you are on a tight budget staying in a villa can keep the costs down on food if you cook and prepare your own, and if you have a restricted diet it can often be easier to cook your own meals. The nearest Publix supermarket is about 6 miles away and stocks a wide selection of food and drink. We didn't find it particularly cheap but it's convenient for sure.



The villa is in a good location if you want to explore the Orlando area, being 30 minutes drive to the Magic Kingdom and 40 minutes drive to Universal Studios. You do need a car to stay here and there aren't any restaurants within walking distance except for the restaurant at the Providence golf club which we didn't use. There is also a clubhouse here with an outdoor pool.



After our stay here I can say we are definite converts to staying in a villa. Here is a video we made for the couples travel blog and YouTube channel I create with my husband.  



Staying in a villa from Contempo Homes gives you the luxury of space with the amenities and the convenience of a self-catering holiday and the added bonus of a pool all to yourself. It can also be surprisingly affordable. For our dates in September 2018, the price was £130 a night. Would we stay again? Most certainly. We loved it! Highly recommended.

  1. Orlando is such a gorgeous place to visit. I do love it there having been many years ago. I never thought to hire a luxury villa there before though. Might be an idea for a family vacation. The kids would love to go to the theme parks there.

    1. I think with a villa it can save the cost on more than one hotel room and you have the space and home comforts as well.

    1. Considering it sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms, then I think it was very affordable too.

  9. When I went to Orlando, I stayed in a hotel on international drive. We wished we'd stayed in a villa instead because it would have been so much cheaper and more chilled out!! xxx
