Grand Reserve Vacation Rentals

Grand Reserve - A Smaller Gated Vacation Rental Community

Grand Reserve is one of the smaller gated vacation rental communities with just over 100 homes and villas in Davenport. Florida. The subdivision has been built around a central lake and the surrounding wetland, and conservation areas. The homeowners in the community prides themselves on offering guests the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day at Orlando's Disney World®. Alternatively, if the parks aren't what you intend to travel to the Orlando for, then maybe that busy day might be spent on one of the many Orlando area championship golf courses which are conveniently located nearby.

Staying at Grand Reserve

The development of Grand Reserve was completed in 2004. Today, the community is well established and is a well managed and maintained gated community which is comprised of both vacation rental homes and permanent residential privately owned properties. The homes and villas on the community are one or two storey properties which have between 3 and 5 bedrooms. As well as the differing number of bedrooms, the community also offers a variety of differently sized properties which range in size from 2,100 to 3,300 sq.ft. Most homes have two or three bathrooms but some have four. All have screened pools, fully equipped kitchens and laundry rooms. A number of villas have games rooms with all or some of the following: pool tables, air hockey, foosball, table tennis and darts, etc. It's worth noting that the games rooms in vacation rental homes are normally in the converted garage space and so may not be air conditioned.

All of the homes at Grand Reserve will come furnished with everything you'll need in order to enjoy your vacation. They will also be locally managed and so if there are any problems with the home, they will be looked after by trained property management personnel, leaving you to enjoy your vacation.

How Far from the Attractions is Grand Reserve

Florida is one of the world's top tourism destinations. Last year nearly 113 million people visited the state, creating a new record. The state has a well developed tourism infrastructure which has been built around its natural and man-made attractions, and nowhere are there so many varied and quality attractions that can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages. In terms of the man-made attractions, these predominantly reside in a band across the state from Orlando and south down towards Tampa. The beauty of staying in a vacation rental home in Grand Reserve is that all of these attractions are all accessible on a day trip from the community. But vacations aren't just about the man-made attractions; you can enjoy the natural resources of Florida too. 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.

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

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 Grand Reserve. 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 Climate at Grand Reserve

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 Grand Reserve 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 Grand Reserve,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).

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 Communities to Consider

Grand Reserve offers a range of good vacation rental homes and it's a convenient place to stay, but it's always worth looking at other comparable vacation rental home communities and resorts which are located within a few miles of Grand Reserve 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/Clerment areas, you might want to consider Bella Toscana and also Four Corners and also Tuscan Hills which is a fantastic place to stay if you're a golfer. If you're looking to keep costs down, then check out 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.

Going slightly more upmarket, it's worth taking a 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 Grand Reserve

Orlando is one of the most visited American cities, popular with both domestic and international travelers, Once nicknamed the City Phenomenal, it's now internationally recognized as the City Beautiful and the Theme Park Capital of the World. Today, all the domestic and most international airlines of any worth fly into Orlando's airports each day. The city 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 Grand Reserve.

A large number of flights arrive and depart Orlando International Airport each day, with Sandford far less well served. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Grand Reserve, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Grand Reserve from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I4. Stay on the 417 until merging with the I4 and head west towards Tampa. Take exit 58 (CR532) towards Poinciana. Keep right at the fork and go on to Champions Gate Boulevard. Turn left onto Loughman Road/Polk 54/Ronald Reagan Parkway and after just over two miles, turn right onto Grand Reserve Drive. The Grand Reserve community will be straight ahead.
