Approximate villa rental cost

I've looked at so many villas in the last 24 hours my poor little brain is fit to burst. We've only stayed onsite before and I feel rather out of my depth.

There's only 5 of us so looking at 3 and 4 bed properties, what sort of prices should I be looking around for a week in August? I know it'll vary by area, the one I'm thinking of booking is in Davenport. It £730 good? It's a 3 bed, 2 bath with nice standard size pool and games room.

Thanks.

If you've looked at lots then you must have an idea of where the pricing is?

I have to say we don't go on price - we find a villa we like (right size, location, orientation to the sun, not too overlooked etc etc) and pay whatever it costs.

I would say be careful of going too small - fine if 3 beds are OK for you but make sure the living space still has room to spread out, the dining tables will seat you all etc. It's probably more of an issue in bigger villas though - sometimes they say they'll sleep 12/14 but the rest of the villa really isn't geared up for that.

Have you put a request in the villa section of the forum? There is a couple of sticky's at the top of the accommodation forum about what checks to complete on a villa before booking. Once you have settled on a particular villa make sure you ask the owner any questions that you have about the property.

If it makes it easier make a list of your wants from the property such as number of bedrooms, reliable wi-fi, pool, games room etc and this should help to narrow down the number of villas.

Good luck and happy hunting.

Around and about that figure, some lower, some higher.

If you are looking at a games room I'd make sure it's air conditioned. Without zircon they may as well be marketed as saunas, especially so in August.

We recently stayed at Solterra Resort, Champions Gate and found we could be at the parks in 20 minutes, however with heavy traffic that was easily an hour. I'd be looking somewhere closer to the Four Corners area personally.

Thank you. I've seen prices from £600 to £1200 and it's just hard to work out what's what. I'm probably over complicating it

I have thank you, haven't found a dibb villa that's quite right yet with availability unfortunately.

Thank you, I'll keep the air con in mind and have a look at that area.

We stayed in a lovely villa in 2018 in Davenport (not a dibb villa, I can send you the details if you like), 3 bed 2 bath and it was lovely, I think we paid £1100 for 10 nights.

Try the Formosa Gardens Area, including Windsor Palms. Very close to Disney and lots of eateries nearby as well as Target and Walmart very close by.
Price can vary so much dependent on facilities. WP do have a lovely community pool and a little shop too for essentials.
That price you mentioned sounds ok 👍

Total minefield and yes, weekly prices do fluctuate hugely villa to villa for many reasons.

Itís a case of whether you want what youíre paying for. If thereís loads of features that raise the cost, are you going to utilise them in order to justify a higher price bracket? At the same time, if the price is at the lower end is the villa rundown with older photos?

It really is a case of trawling and trawling. As someone has already mentioned, if there are five of you you need to make sure the living space is big enough. The living room area is often lacking in seating for the amount of bedrooms it can sleep.
