Briargrove Vacation Rentals

Briargrove - Vacation Rentals with a Disney and Golf Accent

Completed in 1997, Briargrove in Davenport, Florida is one of the Orlando area's oldest and most established vacation rental communities. This quiet residential community is located close to Champions Gate and the I-4 and is therefore perfectly located for easy access to the theme parks as well as the championship golf courses in the area. The holiday rental homes and villas here are as little as a 20 minute car journey from Orlando's Disney World®. So, anyone staying at a Briargrove vacation rental home could start the morning off early at one of the parks, then go home for a late lunch and a dip in the pool, before driving back to Disney for the evening firework display.

Staying at Briargrove

Built in the mid nineteen nineties, Briargrove is a well established and neatly maintained vacation rental community. The single storey properties here are mainly 3 and 4 bedroom villas which offer from 1,250 to 1,800 sq.ft of living space. These homes normally have either two or three bathrooms and will be fully air-conditioned throughout. They will also have their own private screened pool deck with a swimming pool and deck furniture.

Briargrove is ideal for families who are budget conscious and who are looking to take the kids on a Disney themed vacation, but who also don't want to break the bank. Although not a resort, Briargrove does offer a communal swimming pool, a kid's playground, and a tennis and basketball court. So, the whole family can enjoy some exercise and fun without having to leave the community. On Briargrove, the whole family can also enjoy the scenery by taking a walk around the community to watch the local bird-life.

In terms of pricing, Briargrove is clearly not at the top end of the Orlando vacation rental market, but it does offer excellent value for money. Also, as a slightly older vacation rental community in Davenport, it means that it's closer to the theme parks than a lot of the newer, more expensive vacation rental communities and resorts which have been built an ever increasing distance from the parks. So, if the finances are tight, we'd strongly suggest that you check out what's on offer at Briargrove.

Reaching the Attractions from Briargrove

Whether it's Cinderella's Castle, The Chinese Theatre of Hollywood Studios, or the Tree of Life in the Animal Kingdom, you can't deny the appeal of these symbols of the magical lands of Walt Disney World®. As much as the Florida Peninsula has a stunning array of natural phenomena, it is the man made variety that draws millions of people to Florida each year.

Over the past 60 plus years, Orlando has built itself into the world's leading travel destination. The city's theme parks are predominantly behind that incredible transformation of the city. Theme parks are big business in Central Florida and they're spread geographically across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Briargrove. But it's not just about the theme parks and attractions; if you want to take the kids surfing at Cocoa Beach on the Atlantic coast, or just feel like chilling at Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico, then either of these is achievable on a day out. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

The following driving times are approximate, but they give an indication of the convenience of staying in vacation rental home at Briargrove:

Disney World® Parks - 20+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 25 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 25 Minutes

Orlando has a truly diverse selection of courses for every golfer, no matter what your handicap. No two courses are alike here, indeed some are spectacularly different but all are surrounded by enchanting flora and wildlife.

Restaurants in the Briargrove Area

When you head out of Briargrove and drive around the local area, you'll soon pass a fair number of restaurants and fast food outlets, but the real concentration of restaurant and take out can be found on Highway 192. Within a couple of mile stretch of the Highway 192 you'll come across dozen's of restaurants. It However, the vast majority of these eateries are chain restaurants, but if you go off the beaten track, you will find the occasional independently owned restaurant, but you will have to keep an eye out for them. We've compiled the list below by literally driving around the area, so while it's not exhaustive, it will give an impression of the restaurants and fast food outlets that are available: Applebee's, Bahama Breeze, Black Angus Steak Restaurant, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill, Boston Lobster Feast, Buffalo Wild Wings, Charley's Steak House, Chili's, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Columbia, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Diromio's Pizza And Grill, Five Guys, Logan's Roadhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, Macaroni Grill, Manny's Original Chophouse, Miller's Ale House, Moor, Olive Garden, On The Border, Outback Steakhouse, Panera Bread, Perkins, Pollo Tropical, Ponderosa, Red Lobster, Retro Station, Rosies Smokin Hot BBQ, Sakura Asian Fusion, Savion's Place, Sizzler, Shoneys, Sweet Tomatoes, Tarantino's Italian, Texas Roadhouse, TGI Fridays, Waffle House and finally Zaxby's. But this list is by no means exhaustive.

However, iIf you just want to grab a quick bite locally from a fast food outlet, then check out: Arby's, Burger King, Checkers, Chick-fil-A, CiCi's Pizza, Cordovano Joe's Pizza , Crown Fried Chicken, Domino's Pizza, DQ Grill and Chill, Dunkin Donuts, KFC, Long John Silver's, McDonalds, Panda Express, Papa John's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Uno Pizzeria , Subway, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Upper Crust Pizza and Wendy's.

If you're looking to cook in the rental home, then you'll need to pick up the food from a supermarket. There are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a two or three miles of Briargrove. So, it won't take long to run out to get that bottle of wine and the shrimp for the barbeque.

If you're looking for something beyond supermarkets then you'll have to drive a little further. Fifteen plus minutes down the I-4 in the Tampa direction, you'll find Posner Park where you'll find an IMAX Movie Theater and a whole range of restaurants and stores including JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods. But, if you're looking for more upscale shopping then you'll need to head into Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando is a shopper's paradise. Designer brands and the hottest fashion trends are always in style at The Mall Millennia and The Florida Mall where shoppers will find top department stores offering incomparable service. Orlando's designer outlets, including Orlando Premium Outlets on International Drive, Orlando Premium Outlets on Vineland Avenue, and the Lake Buena Vista Outlets, feature a wide selection from the world's top designers at incredible savings. With this many shopping options within a 30 minute drive, retail therapy is never too far away.

The Briargrove Climate

The weather of the Sunshine state is influenced by the fact that all parts of the state are usually no more than 75 miles from the nearest coastline. Therefore, the climate of the whole state is influenced by the ocean. On top of this, Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state, is a climactic pivot point for the climate of Florida. To the North of the lake, which is where Briargrove is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while the areas below it, to the south, experience a true tropical climate.

So, if you stay in a vacation rental in Briargrove, then you can expect to experience weather ranging from warm and pleasant outside of the summer months, thru to extremely hot between June and September. The sun shines almost every day Florida and the temperature doesn't usually fall below freezing (0°C / 32F). These facts should give you an insight as to why Disney World® and Universal Studious and the other parks were built in Orlando.

Generally, if you visit the parks outside of the summer months, you should have a dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be hot and humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

The rainy season arrives in May and runs on through until October. So, when leaving for the parks, you'll want to pack an umbrella and a plastic poncho, or similar. If you're a person who enjoys witnessing torrential downpours, then you can almost set your watch by the thunderstorms each afternoon during the summer month. It's also worth mentioning the Hurricane season which runs from July through to November. Fall/Autumn sees the arrival of beautiful balmy days where average temperatures and rainfall start to reduce. The winter months of December, January and February offer the coolest weather with January daytime temperatures averaging around 23°C / 73°F, but these can drop to 9°C / 48°F overnight. The driest months of the year can be found during late Fall, winter into early spring.

Alternative Communities to Consider

Briargrove offers a range of good vacation rental homes and it's a convenient place to stay. If you've found a property on Briargrove that appeals to you, then we'd recommend that you send off an inquiry regarding its availability and exact cost. However, why stop there? Why not check out other communities and resorts which can be close to Briargrove and which might also have vacation rental homes that interest you. Most homes around Disney World® are in either Kissimmee, Davenport or Clermont areas. Whilst it's not a huge disadvantage, but the Davenport and Clermont communities are further away from most of the attractions, but they are often priced better than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, you might want to consider Bella Toscana and also Four Corners and also Tuscan Hills which is a tempting place to stay if you're a golfer. If the total cost of the rental is an issue, then you might want to consider Crescent Lakes . When it comes to vacation rental communities in Kissimmee, you may want to look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If the budget is not an issue, then you might want to look at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee and Davenport is very good and the general standard of the homes in them can be exceptional. So, we would suggest that before booking any vacation home; determine your requirements including the intended travel dates and the number of adults and children in your party before contacting as many homeowners as possible. This will allow you to identify which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be availability dates, price, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision making process.

Driving Directions to Briargrove

Because Orlando is the recognized vacation capital of the world, it's become the sweetheart of the travel industry. So, for you and me that translates into the fact that it's now pretty straightforward to get a flight in and out of Orlando with a substantial number of international and domestic flights arrive at the city's airports each day. Orlando is served by two international airports; Orlando International Airport (MCO) and the slower paced, more relaxed, Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Briargrove.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and a lesser number use the former naval air station of Sandford. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Briargrove, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Briargrove from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I-4. Stay on the 417 until merging with the I-4 and head west towards Tampa. Take exit 58 (CR532) towards Poinciana. Keep right at the fork and go on to Champions gate Boulevard. Then turn left onto Ronald Reagan Parkway and continue for a mile before turning right onto Briargrove Avenue and the Briargrove vacation rental community is straight ahead.
