Encantada Resort  Vacation Rentals

Encantada Resort Rental Homes - An Orlando Vacation Guide

In Spanish, the word Encantada means 'enchanted', which may seem appropriate when you first visit this first class resort near Disney. Located just a few miles from the Disney parks, Encantada Resort is the perfect vacation destination for travelers of all ages. This gated resort of spacious townhomes is ideal for families looking to access to all of the amenities on offer in Central Florida, whilst staying in a resort that has many family oriented amenities available without having to leave the community.

The Facilities at Encantada Resort

Encantada Resort is an ideal location for Florida family vacations with a wide array of resort amenities, kids activities and family programs available. The design of the townhomes is distinctly Mediterranean style but with Floridian accents.

The homes in the resort have been designed so as to surround the fully featured 9,000 sq.ft. resort clubhouse. This offers many amenities for guests to enjoy including two heated community pools, located next to the clubhouse. The reception area provides information for guests staying at the resort. For the children, there's a fully equipped games room with arcade games and games consoles including Playstation 4s, X-Box and a Wii. While for the adults who want to keep in shape while on vacation, there's a fully-equipped exercise room.

If you find that you need to stay in contact with the office, there's a well equipped 24 hour Business Center in the resort with a PC, high speed internet and all of the usual business related services. But, working on the assumption that if you're staying an Encantada Resort vacation rental home then you've come to get away from things, then this resort really is designed to meet your needs, whether it be fishing off the end of the pier at the 10 acre lake, walking on the jogging trails, or simply swimming with the kids in the huge pool, there's something for everyone at Encantada Resort.

Encantada Resort on Youtube

In order to write our Central Disney Area Destination Guide, we visited each of the communities in the Orlando area and in a lot of cases we also recorded a brief video of the community and uploaded it to Youtube. We did this on our visit to Encantada Resort , which you can see by clicking below. These videos are fairly short and are simply intended to give an impression of the community and provide potential guests with more of a feel for the neighborhood.

Supermarkets
If eating at home is on the menu, then you'll have to find a supermarket nearby. Staying in a vacation rental at Encantada Resort makes that relatively straightforward as there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a short drive of the community. So, when you make a last minute decision to have that BBQ, you'll always be able to pick up the supplies needed.

Other Shopping
If you're looking for something outside of supermarket shopping, then you'll have to drive a little further. 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 include: JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

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.

Reaching the Attractions from Encantada Resort

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 Encantada 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 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 Encantada Resort:

Disney World® Parks - 15+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 20 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 20 Minutes
Legoland - 25 Minutes
Universal Studios - 30 Minutes
Fantasy of Flight - 40 Minutes
Adventure Island, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Busch Gardens, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Kennedy Space Center - 75 Minutes
Cocoa Beach - 70 Minutes
Clearwater Beach - 90 Minutes

Driving Directions to Encantada Resort

With Orlando being the vacation capital of the world, it's the darling of the travel industry and so getting to Orlando is relatively easy. Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport (MCO) which is just 30 minutes from Encantada Resort . Additional scheduled airline flights also arrive at Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) which is a little over an hour's travel time away. To reach Encantada Resort from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching the Celebration Avenue (exit #2). Keep right to take ramp towards US Hwy-192 in a westerly direction. Once on Hwy 192 W, drive for Continue on for 6.5 miles. Then turn left onto Secret Lake Drive in Encantada Resort.

It's also worth mentioning that Highway 192 is Kissimmee's primary tourist 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.

Alternative Vacation Homes to Encantada Resort

We would suggest that if you find a vacation rental home on Encantada Resort that meets your criteria, then you should inquire on its availability, but you should also continue to look for other homes, both on Encantada Resort and on other communities. So, we'll list a few examples starting with a couple of Davenport communities which are further away from most of the attractions, but which are often priced more competitevely than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. In Davenport, you might want to consider Champions Gate which is a very good community for golfers and Encantada Resort and also Tuscan Hills which is another great spot, if you're a golfer. If you're on a tighter budget, then take a look at Crescent Lakes . And then in the Kissimmee area, you might look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If you're looking to spend a little more, then we'd suggest checking out Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and also Windsor Palms the latter two of which are full resorts and so offer a different experience.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Disney area is excellent and the generally the homes on these communities are of a very high quality. So, we'd suggest that as a first step in your hunt for a vacation home, you try and 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.
