Marbella Vacation Rentals

Marbella - Twin Davenport Vacation Rental Communities

Marbella in Davenport, Florida consists of two gated communities, Marbella North and Marbella South. While this Marbella may not be on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, the street names such as Andalusia Loop, Granada Avenue and Cadiz Loop, blend perfectly with the Spanish ambience of the community. Located just over 25 minutes from Walt Disney World®, the Marbella communities are also ideally located for some of the great golf courses in the davenport area.

Staying at Marbella North and Marbella South

Marbella North and Marbella South are situated on opposite sides of the street. The gated entrances of both communities are attractively landscaped with mature magnolia trees and colorful seasonal plants. The surroundings of wooded conservation area and orange groves offer a sweet taste of Florida's natural beauty. Marbella has a tranquil, spacious feel so it's a great place to relax and unwind after a busy day at the theme parks. Designed with families in mind, there is a children's playground and tennis and basketball courts.

Marbella vacation homes are attractive with brick paved driveways adding to their charm. All the vacation rental homes here are detached one and two storey proprties with 4 or 5 bedrooms and 3 or 4 bathrooms and range in size from 2,000 to 3,200 sq. ft. Some have two or more en-suite master bedrooms. All of the homes are modern with spacious layouts and quality finishes. Some have been upgraded with contemporary interiors and the furnishings and decor of these have a stylish appearance. They also have stainless steel appliances and granite counters. Each villa has a screened pool, some with jacuzzi. Pool decks are furnished with sun loungers, dining tables and chairs.

These days, the vacation rental market is becoming ever more competitive, and as result, the owners of many homes are now including a fully equipped games room in their property. This is normally situated in the converted garage space which can sometimes be air conditioned. The games room can contain some or all of the following: a pool table, Foosball, air hockey, etc.

Journeying to the Attractions from Marbella

Whether it's the draw of a certain talking mouse, roaming storm troopers, Cinderella's giant Castle, 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®. Whilst it's common knowledge that the Florida Peninsula has a stunning array of natural resources, it's the man made variety that cause millions of tourists to flock to Florida each year.

Over the past 60 odd years, Orlando has re-imagined itself to become the world's leading travel destination. The city's theme parks are the primary force behind that unparalleled rise in fortunes. 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 Marbella. 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 Marbella:

Disney World® Parks - 25+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 30 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 30 Minutes
Universal Studios - 38 Minutes
Fantasy of Flight - 38 Minutes
Adventure Island, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Busch Gardens, Tampa - 70 Minutes
Kennedy Space Center - 75 Minutes
Cocoa Beach - 70 Minutes
Clearwater Beach - 82 Minutes

Marbella and Golf

If you're suffering from theme park exhaustion, Orlando is on par with unique golf experiences. With around 200 golf courses in the area, there are many different options for style of play, location and budget featuring enough sand, water and sun to satisfy all golfers' needs. Orlando has a truly diverse selection of courses for every golfer, no matter what your handicap. No two courses are alike here, indeed some are spectacularly different but all are surrounded by enchanting flora and wildlife. Here are some golf courses near to Marbella with approximate travel times:

Kings Ridge Golf Club - 18 Minutes
Orange Lake Golf - 17 Minutes
Swiss Fairways Golf Course - 25 Minutes
Legends Golf and Country Club - 21 Minutes
Highlands Reserve - 14 Minutes
Falcon's Fire - 25 Minutes
Green Valley Country Club - 20 Minutes
The Monarch at Royal Highlands - 20 Minutes
Heritage Hills - 20 Minutes
Waldorf Astoria - 25 Minutes

Shops Restaurants around Marbella

Head out in the car from Marbella in any direction and within five or six minutes you'll have driven past at least twenty restaurants or fast food joints. Therefore, whatever you'd like to eat for dinner, you're likely to find it within a 4 or 5 mile radius of your vacation rental home. 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. Here you'll find some of the local eateries include: Bahama Breeze, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Charley's Steak House, Chili's, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Columbia, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Five Guys, Flippers Pizza, Giordano's, Giovanni's Pizza , Golden Corral, 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, Thai Thani, The Catfish Place, Waffle House and finally Zaxby's. But this list is by no means exhaustive.

If you don't feel like driving too far and just want to pick up something locally, then there's a whole range of fast food restaurants nearby which include 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, McDonalds, Panda Express, Pizza Hut, Pizzeria Uno Chicago Bar and Grill , Subway, Starbucks, Taco Bell, Upper Crust Pizza and last, but not least, Wendy's.

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 Marbella. 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 Marbella 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 Marbella 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 Marbella,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.

Other Communities to Consider

Marbella offers a decent range of vacation rental homes and it's well located for the parks, but we advise you to also check out other similar rental communities and resorts which are often sited within a few miles of Marbella and where you might find other properties of interest. While 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 Kissimmee. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, why not check out Bella Toscana and also, if you're into golf, Highlands Reserve . If you're looking to keep costs down, then we'd suggest looking at Crescent Lakes . Looking at 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.

There are a large number of alternative vacation rental communities in the Davenport area, these include, Aviana Resort, or Bella Piazza Resort or Florida Pines which are both full resorts and so offer more onsite entertainment.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Kissimmee, Davenport and Clermont 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 people traveling before contacting as many homeowners as needed. This will allow you to determine which vacation rental homes most closely suit your requirements. Whether it be price, availability, location, size of the property, facilities of the resort or community, etc, all of these should feature in your decision.

Driving to Marbella

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 Marbella.

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 Marbella, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Marbella from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and the I-4. Stay on the 417 until merging with the I-4 and head west towards Tampa. Take exit #55 and merge onto US-27 S. Continue on US-27 S for 5 miles and then turn left onto North Boulevard W. Then drive for a miler before turning left onto N Marbella Boulevard, then immediately turn left onto Andalusia Loop. The communities of Marbella are now ahead of you.
