Being able to say at the end of a busy day "Lets go home!" Bliss.

Not going to the bathroom in the night only to find that you are stood in the corridor naked with your room door locked behind you.
You must have done too.

We went in October, and hope to again. Evenings were cool and it was pure luxury being able to have a night time swim in the lovely heated pool. We stayed a week at POFQ then a week in a villa and the day we arrived at the villa we all spread out and did our own thing for a bit, with everyone deciding we would have a poolside bbq for tea. Hard to describe, glad we tried both Disney hotel and villa but everyone agrees definitely just the villa next time.

Oooh games room! What bonus that is. My kids love having a games room to play in the evening.

Kids racing through the house as soon as we arrive, stripping off and jumping in the pool (with their cossies on, of course!).

Sitting by the pool with a cup of tea on that first morning when you wake up at stupid o'clock, thinking "I'm in Florida!"

Loads of space (sometimes extra rooms!) for the mountains of clothes and shoes we invariably buy.

Laundry facilities - set it going and leave it (I HATE sitting in hotel laundry rooms!).

More than one bathroom.

Fridge/freezer big enough to take all the drinks, ice-cream, beer, wine etc. - freezing two bottles of water every night to take to the parks the next day.

Games room - particularly beloved of teenage boys.

Private pool - especially important for our two boys, who have autism.

Sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine, under the stars, after a long day at the parks or the mall.

Meeting up with friends while on holiday - come 'round to ours for chinese take out!

Eating out and eating in - we never cook. We recently discovered you can order food to go from most restaurants.

Breakfasting quickly in the morning - cereal, toast or pancakes - so we can get to the parks even quicker!


I'm sure I have more, but for now I'll just sit here grinning, dreaming of our next trip.

So here's my list of why I cant wait to stay in a villa:

Loadsa space
Private pool/hot tub (swimwear optional! )
No need to worry about people above or below you being noisy
Lovely big kitchen/fridge, to store lots of yummy snacks/drink
More than 1 TV so there wont be any arguments over who wants to watch what!
Option of using a lovely big communal pool if we feel like it
It will really feel like home for 3 weeks
Sorry but Swimwear isn't optional your likely to get arrested without it lol
My repeat guests say they feel its like their home for their stay and some have been 4/5 times which is nice for us
