Chatham Park Vacation Rentals

Chatham Park - Good Value Vacation Rentals

Chatham Park is one of the older vacation rental communities in the Kissimmee area and offers keenly priced rental homes. Ideally situated for Orlando's Disney World® and SeaWorld, Chatham Park offers both 3 and 4 bedroom home set in quiet surroundings which can be a great antidote for a busy family day at the parks and attractions. The kids will also love the wildlife here with the lakes and wooded areas easily accessible.

About Chatham Park

Built in the early nineteen nineties, Chatham Park is a well established and neatly maintained vacation rental community of just under 300 predominantly single storey properties. The homes here are mainly 3 and 4 bedroom villas which offer from 1,250 to 2,600 sq.ft of covered living space. Each home will have either two or three bathrooms and will be fully air-conditioned throughout. They will also have a pool deck with a screened swimming pool complete with pool deck furniture.

Chatham Park is ideal for families who are budget conscious and looking to treat the kids to a Disney vacation without breaking the bank.

Although not a resort, Chatham Park does offer a gated communal pool, a children's play area, and nearby there are tennis and basketball courts. So, the kids can safely have fun without having to leave the community. And for exercise, the whole family can take a walk around the park and lake to watch the local bird-life.

Whilst Chatham Park is obviously not at the high end of the Orlando vacation rental market, it does offer excellent value for money. Plus, as it's a slightly older community, it means that it's closer to the attractions 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 you are on a budget, we'd strongly suggest that you check out what's on offer at Chatham Park.

Getting from Chatham Park to the Attractions

We're probably not revealing any secrets s when we say that Florida has earned a reputation as one of the world's leading tourist spots. But, whilst there are some spectacular beaches and all year round sunshine, the majority of tourists travel from all corners of the planet to come to see a Walt's talking mouse.

Over the past six decades, the large corporations behind the theme parks have propelled Orlando on to become a world leader in mass tourism. The city's theme parks are the primary force behind that unparalleled improvement in fortunes for 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 Chatham Park. 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 Chatham Park:

Disney World® Parks - 15+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 20 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 20 Minutes
Legoland - 25 Minutes
Universal Studios - 30 Minutes
Busch Gardens, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Kennedy Space Center - 75 Minutes
Cocoa Beach - 70 Minutes
Clearwater Beach - 90 Minutes

Golf and Chatham Park

With its subtropical climate and year-round sunshine, Orlando is a true golfer's paradise. The average annual temperature of 72.4 degrees makes it a great place to work on your game - or forget about it altogether and just have fun.

So, if you're a beginner looking to brush up on your game, there's a course for you, and if you're a pro looking to challenge yourself on a wide range of different layouts, there are several courses for you. Just bring your clubs - or rent them - and get ready to enjoy a scenic, memorable and fun round. Below are some golf courses near to Chatham Park:

Shop and Restaurants Near Chatham Park

If you've spent weeks dieting before arriving in Florida, then you might want to sit down before reading any further. I'm afraid we have some bad news for you as the entire area around Disney World® is crammed with restaurants and fast food outlets. So, the question you're going to be asking yourself is not ‘where to eat', rather it's ‘where do I start', or possibly ‘where do I stop'. When you drive out of Chatham Park and drive around the local area, you'll soon come across a number of restaurants and fast food outlets, but the real concentration of eateries can be found on US192. Here, you'll come across several dozen restaurants. So, no matter the kids want for dinner, you'll find it here. Most of the restaurants are chain restaurants, but you will find the occasional independently owned restaurant, but you'll have to search for them. The list we've compiled below is in no way meant to be exhaustive, but it does give you an idea of the restaurants and fast food outlets that are available: Bahama Breeze, Black Angus Steak Restaurant, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill, Boston Lobster Feast, Buffalo Wild Wings, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Charley's Steak House, Chili's, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Columbia, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Diromio's Pizza And Grill, Five Guys, Flippers Pizza, Giordano's, Giovanni's Pizza , Golden Corral, IHOP, 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, Thai Thani, The Catfish Place, Waffle House and finally Zaxby's. But this list is probably already out of date, as restaurants are regularly popping up around Disney World® and Universal Studios.

If you don't feel like driving too far and just want to pick up something locally, then there's a whole range of fast food restaurants nearby which include 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, Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar and Grill , Subway, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Upper Crust Pizza and last, but not least, Wendy's.

If you're thinking of cooking at the villa, then you'll want to find a supermarket. That's easy; there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a five minute drive of Chatham Park. So, you'll never be too far away when you need to pick up that bottle of wine, or a few beers and the steaks for the poolside BBQ.

If you're looking for something beyond supermarkets then you'll have to drive a little further. Twenty 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, Books-a-Million, 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 Weather at Chatham Park

The climate of Florida is heavily influenced by the fact that all parts of the state are in close proximity to the ocean. Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state, is a point of demarcation for the climate of the Sunshine state. To the North of the lake, which is where Chatham Park is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Chatham Park, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant, through to extremely hot (June-Sept) throughout the year. The sun shines on most days in Florida and the temperature doesn't usually fall below freezing (0°C / 32F). These facts should give you a clue 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

Chatham Park offers a range of good vacation rental homes and it's a convenient place to stay. If you've found a property on Chatham Park 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 Chatham Park 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 Chatham Park

Orlando is the theme park capital of the world and is therefore one of the world's most visited tourist regions, drawing tens of millions visitors each year. So, it's no surprise to find that a large 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 Orlando-Sanford Airport (SFB) which are 30 minutes and one hour's driving time, respectively from Chatham Park.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and a lesser number use Sandford. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Chatham Park, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Chatham Park from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World(r) and continue until reaching exit 3 for Osceola Pkwy. Turn left onto W Osceola Pkwy and after 2 miles, use the right lane to take the slip road to Poiniciana Blvd/FL-535/US-192. After 400 yards, turn right onto N Poinciana Blvd. After half a mile take a left turn into Pam Road. Chatham Park will be ahead on the right.

As Chatham Park is so close to Highway 192, it's also worth mentioning that the 192 is Kissimmee's primary tourist entertainment road. Also, much to the delight of non-native drivers, the 192 has brightly colored Guide Markers along various sections which make it easier to navigate.
