Apartments in Orlando - Short Term Letting
For a good combination of space, privacy and onsite facilities, Orlando apartments offer a good value alternative to hotels or home rentals. Many apartments available for short-term lettings are in timeshare resorts close to the main Florida attractions rather than downtown areas and offer access to pools, entertainment centres, spas and sports facilities.
There are a huge number of holiday apartments and condos in the Kissimmee area, only 10 to 15-minutes drive from Disney. Most of Orlando's apartments are fully equipped and furnished though generally aren't quite as luxurious as villas or home rentals. However, the prices reflect this and you can generally find a good apartment for less than you'd pay for a hotel room.
Top Orlando apartment rentals
One of the best Florida rental resorts is the tropically-landscaped Bahama Bay Resort which features one to three-bedroom apartments as well as a range of condos. The Caribbean-themed resort is nestled around Lake Davenport where you can snooze on the natural beach or take out a boat. The resort also has plenty of water features, four heated pools, a recreation centre, fitness centre, sauna and spa, tennis courts and a small cinema. For more information visit
Another popular option for apartment rentals is Liki Tiki Village off Highway 192, which offers good value apartments for rent by the week. The resort also features two pools, a mini water park, tennis courts, an electronic games room and a children's interactive playground. You'll find more information about Liki Tiki Village on IslandOne.com.
Private owner-operated apartment rentals are another good bet and can often have the advantage of a more personal touch in the décor and an individual's pride in their own vacation rental property. Windsor Palms Resort in downtown Kissimmee is a good example of this and has two and three-bedroom apartments, condos and villas available for rent. Along with the good value properties the resort amenities include an Olympic-sized heated pool, a kids pool, a gym, tennis courts, a spa and a 50-seat cinema.

Apartments can range in price from $695 to $1000 for a two-bedroom two-bathroom apartment in high season. Beware of reduced price packages that require you to attend a hard-sell timeshare presentation though. The aggressive marketing tactics used can be very intimidating and are rarely worth the savings on your package deal.
