Florida Pines Vacation Rentals

Florida Pines - Vaction Rentals with a Golf Bias

Built in 2002, Florida Pines is one of the larger vacation rental communities in the Davenport, Florida area with over 520 homes. Located close to US27 and also comparatively close to the I-4 highway, Florida Pines is ideally situated for shopping, restaurants and the main attractions of Orlando. Also, if you're a golfer, the subdivision is also located close to several of the area's top quality golf courses.

About Florida Pines

The Florida Pines vacation rental community is a twenty minute drive from Orlando's Disney World® and borders on conservation area, meaning both the parks and the local wildlife are easily accessible from the rental homes and villas on the community.

Florida Pines vacation rentals offer a good level of accommodation. The rates here will be lower than many of the communities in Kissimmee, so if you're planning on taking the kids on a vacation to Disney, but the budget is not overly flexible, then Florida Pines will be worth taking a look at. All of the homes on the community are fully air-conditioned and have fitted kitchens with modern appliances. Aside from the homes themselves, the community offers a number of public areas and facilities. These include a large communal pool and two children's play areas.

The vacation rental homes here are smaller than the rental homes on a lot of communities and are predominantly single storey detached single family homes with either 3 or 4 bedrooms. As a reflection of the number of bedrooms, they range in size from 1,300 to 2,000 sq.ft. All of the Florida Pines homes and villas will have a private screened-in pool and will come furnished with everything you're likely to need to make your stay enjoyable.

These days, the vacation rental market is becoming increasingly competitive, and as result homeowners are having to offer more to make their homes more attractive to rental guests. So, a lot of rental homes now include a fully equipped games room. This normally takes the form of a converted garage which may or may not be air conditioned. You should expect this space to contain a pool table and/or Foosball, and/or air hockey, etc.

Reaching the Attractions from Florida Pines

Florida is the top travel destination in the world and 2016 saw the arrival of over 112.8 million visitors to the Sunshine State. The entire state enjoys its share of tourism, but it's Central Florida and in particular Orlando that sees the lion's share of these visitors. And if Orlando is the main attraction in Central Florida, then it's the theme parks that are the main attraction in Orlando. Over the past sixty years Orlando has been transformed by the arrival of the likes of Disney World® and Universal Studios.
Central Florida's theme parks, whilst mainly in Orlando, are also spread south down as far as Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Florida Pines. 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 one of these can be done on a day out. Both of these beaches are within a 90 minute drive of Florida Pines.

The following figures reflect the drive time from Florida Pines to the attraction or destination:

Disney World® Parks - 19+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 25 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 25 Minutes
Legoland - 37 Minutes
Universal Studios - 32 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

Golf Courses Around Florida Pines

Orlando is home to some of the world's best golfers, including 30 PGA Tour players so there's no doubt that this is a pretty talented neighborhood. Many of the pros choose Orlando because of the numerous golf courses and with the weather always being so fantastic for spending time outside, it's not difficult to see why. In short, Orlando has all the ingredients necessary to be a great golf destination, and with all of the theme parks and attractions that exist in the area, Orlando probably has more to offer than any other golf destination. Here are some golf courses close to Florida Pines with approximate driving times:

Stoneybrook West - 25 Minutes
Champions Gate - 10 Minutes
Cypresswood Golf and Country Club - 30 Minutes
Deer Creek RV Golf and Country Club - 10 Minutes
Kings Ridge Golf Club - 15 Minutes
Orange Lake Golf - 15 Minutes

The Monarch at Royal Highlands - 20 Minutes
Heritage Hills - 20 Minutes

Restaurants in the Florida Pines Area

When you head out of Florida Pines 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 US192. Within a couple of mile stretch of the US192 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 Florida Pines. 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 take a short drive along the US27, beyond the I-4 junction to 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 Florida Pines Weather

When staying in Florida, you'll never be too far from the ocean, so as a result, the general climate of the Sunshine state is partly determined by the ocean. In addition, the weather in the state is divided into two. The split occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of the state. In areas to the North of the lake, which is where Florida Pines is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

When staying in a vacation rental in Florida Pines,Davenport, 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).

Visiting the parks outside of the summer months, means that you should experience dry and comfortable conditions. 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 Look At

We'd suggest that if you find a vacation rental home on Florida Pines that ticks all the right boxes, then send off an inquiry about it's exact rental price and availability, but also do continue to look for other homes, both on Florida Pines and on other communities. So, we'll list a few examples starting with a couple of Davenport and Clermont 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 the Davenport/Clermont area, you might want to consider Champions Gate which is a very good community for golfers and Four Corners 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 comfortable with spending a little more, then we'd suggest checking out Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and also Windsor Palms which are both 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.

Driving to Florida Pines

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 the Florida Pines subdivision.

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 Florida Pines, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Florida Pines from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I4. Stay on the 417 until merging with the I-4 heading west toward Tampa and stay on the I-4 until reaching the Highway 27 exit (Exit# 55). It's worth mentioning that during the evening commute period (4:00-7:00pm), there will probably be 20 minute delay due to slow moving, or stropped traffic around exit 60 of the I-4. Turn right onto Highway 27 and after approximately two miles, turn left onto Florida Pines Boulevard and the Florida Pines community can be found straight ahead.
