Crystal Cove Resort Vacation Rentals

Crystal Cove Resort - An Upscale Vacation Rental Gated Community

Crystal Cove Resort is an upmarket gated vacation rental community close to Orlando's Disney World®. Built in 2008, with fewer than 190 single family homes, Crystal Cove is one of the newest communities in Kissimmee, Florida. The resort has been designed to sit around a five acre lake, but probably, the most stunning feature of the resort is the fully-equipped clubhouse. This modern Resort offers everything for a stunning family vacation, plus it's central to everything America's most popular vacation spot has to offer.

About Crystal Cove Resort

Crystal Cove Resort is a secure gated environment which is minutes away from some of the best theme parks in the world. The community has at its center a 5 acre manmade lake and alongside that and close to the resort's entrance is the Crystal Cove clubhouse. This offers a large resort style heated outdoor swimming pool and a plethora of fitness and entertainment. Outside the clubhouse, there's an impressive, large poolside terrace with sun loungers and deck furniture. This is a great place to keep the kids safely occupied and for you to meet new friends, often from all around the world. To keep the kids further entertained, the clubhouse also has a pool table, a wide screen TV with extensive seating and outside there's a fully equipped children's playground.

Once you've passed through the gated entrance of Crystal Cove, you immediately realize that you've entered an upmarket resort designed for the whole family. The tropical vegetation around the central lake is very attractive and the extensive landscaping of native plants and seasonal flowers contribute to the feeling of having arrived at a luxury resort.

Vacation Rental Homes in Crystal Cove Resort

All of the Crystal Cove Resort holiday rental villas are detached single family homes and are fully air conditioned. Whilst they may differ in what facilities they each offer, the homes are generally well-equipped and spacious and have their own lanai (pool screen netting) covered swimming pool. The lanai protects against insects and other unwanted guests.

The homes here range from 4 to 8 bedroom detached properties with between 1,800 and 3,600 sq.ft of living space. Crystal Cove resort comprises a mixture of both family residential and vacation rental homes. All homes are decorated and furnished with fully equipped kitchens and with everything you'll need to enjoy your stay. A number of the more upmarket properties will have upgraded kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Again, the better homes will also include a games room which normally be housed in the home's converted garage. Games rooms of this type will usually have a pool table, table tennis, air hockey or possibly foosball table and arcade games. This space can be air conditioned, but are sometimes not.

Reaching the Attractions from Crystal Cove Resort

Florida, and in particular, Central Florida has an awful lot to offer vacationers from all over the world. Arguably, the biggest draw in world tourism are the theme parks and attractions of Florida. These are predominantly spread across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Crystal Cove Resort. 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 doable on a day trip. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

Non-Supermarket Shopping
Outside of food shopping and whilst staying relatively local, you'll have to drive a few miles west on the I-4 (towards Tampa), you'll find Posner Park where there's an IMAX theater plus a selection of restaurants and shops which among other include: JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
If retail therapy is the name of the game, then grab all of your credit cards, get in the car and drive east, up the I-4, towards Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers a range of shopping options. 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 opportunities within 30 minutes driving distance, you had better bring a backup credit card.

The Climate at Crystal Cove Resort

The climate of the Sunshine state is 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 also a pivot point for the climate of Florida. Above the lake, which is where Crystal Cove Resort is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while the areas below the lake, to the south, experience a true tropical climate.

When staying in a vacation rental in Crystal Cove Resort,Kissimmee, then you should plan for weather ranging from warm and pleasant from October through until May, and extremely hot between June and September. Florida sees a lot of sunshine throughout the year and the temperatures rarely fall near or below freezing (0°C / 32F).

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 the peak of summer 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 Similar Communities

Crystal Cove Resort is a popular place for a vacation and if you've found a home that you like the look of, then you should send off an inquiry about its availability and exact price. But it's always worth looking at other similar vacation rental home communities and resorts which might only be a mile or two away from Crystal Cove Resort and which might also be of interest. 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/Clermont area, you might want to consider Calabay Parc (the other community) and also Calabay Parc at Tower Lake and also Tuscan Hills which is a fantastic place to stay if you're a golfer. If you're looking to limit the expenditure, then check out Crescent Lakes . And turning to the 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 you can spend a little more, then how about looking at Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills or 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; establish your needs including the planned dates of travel and the number of you traveling 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 to Crystal Cove Resort

If you're heading to Orlando, then the chances are that you're going there to enjoy the world-class theme parks. In this sunny Florida city, Disney, Universal and SeaWorld are the big three parks, each attracting tens of millions of visitors every year. This obviously comes as no surprise to the airlines which operate a substantial number of international and domestic flights into Orlando'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 Crystal Cove Resort.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and although sometimes more convenient, Sandford, offers far less choice of routings in and out of Orlando. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Crystal Cove Resort, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Crystal Cove Resort from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® 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 Crystal Garden Boulevard.
