You don’t need to stay in a Disney hotel on your upcoming Orlando holiday. Why not choose to reside in an Orlando luxury villa instead? Not only will you have the chance to unwind in peace and quiet away from thousands of excitable park-goers, but villa rental tends to be cheaper too – without scrimping on quality.

If it’s privacy and comfort you’re after, a luxury villa rental in Orlando may well be your best bet. There are so many pleasant gated villa communities in the Kissimmee area too – available in a variety of shapes and sizes - all just a short drive away from Orlando’s top attractions. 

We’ve featured a few of our favourite luxury villas Orlando has to offer, so you can stay in utmost style.

Six-bedroom homes at Bella Vida

The gorgeous community of Bella Vida has a whole range of villas to choose from, but our top pick for one of the most luxury villa rentals Orlando has to offer has got to be their Six-Bedroom vacation homes.

In addition to being larger, these villas also tend to be more luxurious, each boasting modern interiors, flat-screen TVs, and complimentary WiFi. And with six bedrooms, they can quite comfortably sleep up to 12. There’s certainly no shortage of space with the large kitchen, lounge, dining room, two-car garage, plus a covered lanai and private pool out back.

Villa guests will also have access to the community’s wonderful shared facilities, including basketball courts, a games room, and peaceful Italian gardens – a perfect spot for reading a book or enjoying some serenity away from Walt Disney World.

Five-bedroom home at Emerald Island

Luxury villas in Orlando don't get much homelier than this. With its charming decor and abundance of space, this Five-Bedroom Villa at Emerald Island has everything you need for both a fun and relaxing holiday. 

On rest days, you can spend family time making a splash in your private pool, playing air hockey in the games room, or cooking up a delicious feast in the fully-equipped kitchen. And rest assured there'll be a huge king-sized bed waiting for your return after those tiring yet exciting days out exploring the parks.

This villa will get a big thumbs up from the kids, too. Little ones will love staying in either the Shrek or Harry Potter-themed Twin Rooms, (depending on whether they love ogres or wizards more) best to leave it to them to battle it out.

Ten-bedroom homes at ChampionsGate Resort

Multi-generational or mixed families seeking one shared villa will feel most at home at ChampionsGate Resort. Although there are smaller properties on offer (like the charming Four-Bed Townhouses), it’s the larger 10-Bedroom Villas we recommend most.

In our eyes, this is the ultimate luxury villa rental Orlando offers families – you'll have your own Florida mansion for the week.

With 10 large bedrooms and a multitude of reception rooms, these villas can sleep up to a whopping 22 people. But don’t worry, you won’t feel crammed either. The 3,800ft2 of space is specially designed for luxury and comfort. 

With a covered lanai, private pool, and a games room to entertain, this is the perfect place to celebrate special occasions with the whole family.

Six-bedroom homes at Crystal Cove

The vacation homes at Crystal Cove are a popular choice when it comes to villa rentals in Orlando. There are a variety of four or five-bedroom properties available, but it’s the larger Six-Bedroom Villas that really get us excited. 

Boasting modern interiors and ample space, this is a great choice for families or groups indulging in an extra-special property that everyone can stay in together.

By day, you can take a dip in the pool or enjoy a spot of healthy competition in the games room. And by night, the best chef can cook up a storm in the kitchen before a night of board games and drinks are enjoyed around the dining table. 

These homes are also just 10 minutes away from the entrance of Walt Disney World, so this is a great accommodation choice for theme park fanatics planning on spending a lot of time braving the big-time ‘coasters.

Disney memories at Paradise Palms Resort

If you have the kids in tow (or you’re a big kid yourself) you'll want to stay at one of the luxury Disney-themed villas in Paradise Palms Resort. You’ll have a choice of either ‘Disney Stories’ or ‘Disney Memories’ – the latter being a large two-storey four-bedroom property that’s perfect for families with character-obsessed youngsters. 

With touches of colourful Disney decor throughout, it’s like having the magic follow you home from the parks and into your very own home. But don’t worry, this isn’t just a good pick for kids – adults will feel the benefits too.

Whilst little ones spend their days playing in the private splash pool, parents can soak up the sun in the covered lanai courtyard. Plus, a night’s sleep will feel glorious in the extra-comfy king-sized beds. You’ll be needing those few extra winks with such a busy schedule.

Outside the villa, you also have access to the community’s onsite clubhouse facilities, including a cinema and a kids' adventure playground.

The best luxury villas in Orlando FAQs

Why should I choose a villa rental over a hotel stay?

In a nutshell, luxury Orlando villas offer the benefit of privacy that hotels simply can’t match, and the extra living space means you have the freedom to truly relax without the disturbance of fellow guests.

Plus, most villas cost significantly less than a stay in a hotel, especially if you’re a large family who’d need multiple rooms. However, after weighing up the pros and cons, it really does just come down to your own personal preference.

Alternatively, if you prefer your accommodation with a lighter footprint, check out our list of sustainable hotels in Orlando. 

How far away are Orlando’s theme parks?

All of the villas mentioned in this list are just a short drive away from Orlando’s biggest and best theme park attractions, including Disney, Universal, and Sea World.

Just note that opting for a luxury villa rental in Orlando also means you won’t have access to complimentary bus transfers that travel from hotels to the parks. But don’t worry, local Uber rides are relatively cheap or you can nominate a member of your party to be the designated driver of a rental car. It’s up to you.

Are villas suitable for children?

Of course! Children will love having a luxury Orlando villa all to themselves, especially with their own private swimming pool to splash - so be sure to bring some fun inflatables. Not to mention the magic that comes with themed bedrooms! 

It’s also worth noting that many of Orlando’s villa communities are complete with onsite kids’ clubs, so bump those that do up to the top of the list if kids’ entertainment is important to you. 

We’re big believers that luxury theme park holidays in Orlando are made even better with luxury Orlando villas – you get extra space and double the privacy to ensure you’re well-rested in between park days. 

Or if villas aren’t really your thing, take a closer look through Orlando's top luxury hotels an stay in a resort suite sounds more up your street.
