Oak Island Cove Vacation Rentals

Oak Island Cove - Vacation Rentals Close to the Parks

Oak Island Cove vacation rentals are some of the closest homes to Disney World® in Orlando. Built in 2000, the one hundred villas and homes on this community offer quality rental homes at very reasonable prices and so the homes here are always in demand. In addition, if you're a keen golfer, then Oak Island Cove also has the advantage of being in close proximity to a large number of golf courses in the Kissimmee area, many of which are open to the public and no more than a few minutes away from the community's entrance.

About Oak Island Cove

With over 100 homes, Oak Island Cove is the larger of the two subdivisions which go to make up the overall Oak Island community. In total, Oak Island is comprised 164 homes and villas with Oak Island Harbor forming the other, slightly smaller half of the community.

Constructed alongside its sister subdivision, Oak Island Cove was built close to a nature reserve in Kissimmee, Florida. The community is tastefully landscaped and consists of 3, 4, 5 and 6 bedroom homes which vary in size from 1,600 to 3,000 square feet. Because of its closeness to the nature area, some of the homes here are can overlook scenic lakes, with abundant wildlife.

Oak Island Cove is located a mile from Highway 192, which is the main tourist thoroughfare in Kissimmee. This means that vacation rental homes on the community are only a few minutes away from several dozens restaurants. More importantly, it means that Oak Island Cove is at the very most 15 minutes away from Walt Disney World® Orlando.

The Homes on Oak Island Cove

All of the Oak Island Cove vacation homes are fully air-conditioned, detached, one or two storey family homes. As a rule, the homes here are spacious and well designed and will come with their own privately Lanai covered swimming pool. Some of the better homes may also have a games room which normally features some or all of the following: a foosball table, a pool table, a table tennis table, air hockey and possibly arcade games.

Getting to the Parks from Oak Island Cove

Florida, and Central Florida in particular, have a worldwide reputation as being a center for mass tourism. Over the past fifty to sixty years, Orlando has become the world's leading travel destination. And the theme parks in the city are largely responsible for this amazing transformation of the city. Theme parks are big business in Central Florida and they are spread geographically across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Oak Island Cove. 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 Oak Island Cove Weather

With any location in Florida being no more than seventy five miles from the ocean, the whole state's climate is heavily influenced by its proximity to the ocean. On top of that, the state is climatically split into. The division occurs at Lake Okeechobee, in the middle of Florida. Anywhere to the North of the lake, which is where Oak Island Cove, Kissimmee is located, the climate is defined as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Oak Island Cove, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the non-summer months, through to extremely hot during the period of June thru to September. Florida is called the Sunshine state for good reason, the sun shines on most days and the temperature rarely ventures anywhere near 32°F. This explains why over the years, Disney and Universal Studios have both made Florida, and in particular Orlando, their home.

If you visit Orlando's theme parks and attractions outside of the summer months, you should have a relatively dry and comfortable experience. But in summer months, it's going to be very hot and very humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

Alternative Communities to Consider

Oak Island Cove 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 Oak Island Cove 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 Calabay Parc and also the confusingly similarly named Calabay Parc at Tower Lake 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 Oak Island Cove

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 Oak Island Cove.

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 Oak Island Cove, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Oak Island Cove 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 4 miles and then turn left onto Formosa Gardens Blvd. Oak Island Cove is approximately 1 mile ahead on the left, just after the Funie Steed Rd four way stop..

As Oak Island Cove is so close to Highway 192, it's worth pointing out that Highway 192 is Kissimmee's primary tourist road. You might call it Kissimmee's answer to Orlando's International Drive. 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.
