The resort's 3,500 sq. ft clubhouse has a fair number of amenities which include: a full service business center with desktop computers and high-speed internet, a gathering room and a recreation area, a well quipped exercise room, a library and a games room. Outside, there's a sand volleyball court and a children's play area and a large heated resort style pool and Jacuzzi spa with a large sun deck which overlooks a lake. The whole area is furnished with sun loungers and pool furniture.

Lucaya Resort is located close to Old Town in Kissimmee and is no more than a 15 minute drive from Disney World® and twenty five minutes from Universal Studios. The townhomes here are 3 and 4 bedroom, two storey units. They are well furnished with comfortable family rooms and feature fully equipped kitchens, often with upgraded granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.

In order to write our Central Disney Area Destination Reports, 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 Lucaya Village 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.

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.

Also, it's worth bearing in mind that the area around Disney World® is expanding quickly and so new restaurants are opening every month, but at the time of writing, the best selection of restaurants are to be found on the Highway 192.

So, you'll never be too far away when you need to pick up that bottle of wine and the shrimp for the poolside BBQ.

For non-grocery shopping, you'll have to travel slightly further afield.

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 Lucaya Village Resort 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 Lucaya Village Resort 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 Lucaya Village 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).

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

Lucaya Village Resort is a great place to stay, but it's always worth looking at other comparable vacation rental home communities and resorts which can be found within a few miles of Lucaya Village 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 Davenport and Clermont, you might want to consider Bella Toscana (the other community) 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 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 Lucaya Village 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 25 minutes and 55 minutes driving time, respectively from Lucaya Village 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 Lucaya Village Resort, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Lucaya Village Resort from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching exit #6. Use the left 2 lanes to turn left onto FL-535 S. After a mile, turn right onto Polynesian Isle Boulevard. After a further mile, turn right onto Lucayan Harbour Circle. Lucaya Village Resort is straight ahead.
