My husband and I were recently planning a family vacation to Orlando and we wanted to spend at least 10 days in the area since there is a lot to see and do. We also wanted to bring my mom along on the trip too so that meant we would need to book an extra room for her. Once we calculated up the cost of our trip, one thing was apparent, lodging was going to cost us a lot of money.
I heard about renting vacation homes before and I was intrigued by the idea. Luckily, I had the opportunity to stay at All Star Vacation Homes during a press trip for Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom movie so it was the perfect time to check out the vacation home idea.
Right away I could see the extra value our vacation would have by staying at All Star Vacation Home. Not only would it be more affordable than booking two hotel rooms but I could also invite my sister-in-law and her family to stay with us at the home and reduce the cost even more.
The home I stayed in was at 8039 Acadia Estates Court in Kissimmee, FL and is 3 miles from Walt Disney World
The home is over 3,000 square feet with five bedrooms, three of which had their own private bathroom. This is the room that I stayed in during my press trip. I felt like I was staying in a model home, it was so beautiful.
Check out how awesome this floor plan is, I stayed in Master 1 King on the bottom floor.
The home also includes a Home Theatre with a 92″ projection screen, Netflix and a Blu-Ray player.
A game room which included a pool table, a Donkey Kong Video game and a work area.
Full-sized washer and dryer, iron and ironing board.
Multiple eating areas
The best part of staying at an All Star Vacation Home is the pool. Where else can your family will enjoy their own enclosed, heated private pool and spa?
Other amenities include:
- Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi
- Gas BBQ grill
- TV’s & Ceiling Fans in each bedroom
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Baby equipment such as a high chair, play pen and baby saucer
- Outdoor shower
- Patio furniture
- ADORABLE themed rooms

I was delighted with my stay at All Star Vacation Homes and can’t wait to take my family to Orlando and stay there for our next getaway. With this type of vacation home we will have many luxuries not available at a hotel such as a private pool, theatre, full sized kitchen, full sized washer and dryer and a game room. With multiple Master Bedrooms these homes can accommodate multiple families and can reduce the cost of lodging on your next vacation.
Ok, confession time, maybe the pool wasn’t the best part, it was the Donkey Kong Arcade game. #ChildOfThe80’s
