Orange Tree Vacation Rentals

Orange Tree - An Executive Vacation Rental Community

Orange Tree in Clermont is an executive community of detached homes surrounded by 5 acres of meticulously landscaped grounds. The area is known for its citrus heritage where generations of growers planted orange groves and nurtured blossoming trees until they produced ripe, juicy globes ready for the picking. Although little of the orange groves remain today, Orange Tree still has over one thousand orange trees to be enjoyed by the community. There's no perfume as sweet as the fragrance of citrus blossoms, and few sights are as beautiful as a citrus grove bursting with oranges.

Arriving at Orange Tree

As you enter the community you drive through an avenue of orange trees so it immediately feels like a very peaceful, tranquil location. The natural beauty of the community is enhanced by its 1,000 orange trees. Visitors are welcome to pick the oranges during their stay and enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice for breakfast! Adding to the enchantment of the community, the streets are named after birds, trees or flowers that you might see in the area such as Robin Hill Loop, Egret Hill Street or Osprey Hill Street.

Orange Tree Homes

Orange Tree offers a selection of 3, 4, and 5 bedroom homes, all with private screened pools. Some have multiple bedroom suites. Homes are individually furnished and decorated and some have access to UK TV and/ or Netflix. There is a selection of villas with games rooms to keep the teenagers entertained (and maybe even the adults too). Some villas overlook the lake or back onto the orange groves or conservation area with fragrant pine trees. For those who don't want to give up their sports while on vacation, there is a tennis court, basketball court and a soccer pitch. The small lake has an abundance of wildlife but remember than almost every body of water in Florida is home to an alligator. The nature trail circles the entire community and is perfect for walking and jogging. For the younger ones, there are two tot-lots with fun slides and swings.

Reaching the Attractions from Orange Tree

Florida, and in particular, Central Florida is renowned as a world leader in tourism. But the jewel in the Central Florida's crown is the large number of attractions and natural resources it has available to tourists. These are predominantly spread across Orlando and south down to Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Orange Tree. 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 doable on a day trip. Both of these beaches are no more than a 90 minute drive away.

The extremely pleasant weather makes it a natural hot spot for golfers. Many of the very best golf course architects have done some of their finest work right here. There are courses to suit every golfer's ability from beginners to scratch golfers. The best time for golfing weather is between October through May when it gets cooler (temps in the 70s/80s) and course conditions are at their peak, but you get the best price breaks between the hotter and stickier months of July through September.

Shop and Restaurants Near Orange Tree

If you've spent weeks dieting before arriving in Florida, then you might want to sit down before reading any further. I'm afraid we have some bad news for you as the entire area around Disney World® is crammed with restaurants and fast food outlets. So, the question you're going to be asking yourself is not ‘where to eat', rather it's ‘where do I start', or possibly ‘where do I stop'. When you drive out of Orange Tree and drive around the local area, you'll soon come across a number of restaurants and fast food outlets, but the real concentration of eateries can be found on US192. Here, you'll come across several dozen restaurants. So, no matter the kids want for dinner, you'll find it here. Most of the restaurants are chain restaurants, but you will find the occasional independently owned restaurant, but you'll have to search for them. The list we've compiled below is in no way meant to be exhaustive, but it does give you an idea of the restaurants and fast food outlets that are available: Bahama Breeze, Black Angus Steak Restaurant, Bob Evans, Bonefish Grill, Boston Lobster Feast, Buffalo Wild Wings, Carrabba's Italian Grill, Charley's Steak House, Chili's, Chuy's Tex-Mex, Columbia, Cracker Barrel, Denny's, Diromio's Pizza And Grill, Five Guys, Flippers Pizza, Giordano's, Giovanni's Pizza , Golden Corral, IHOP, 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, Thai Thani, The Catfish Place, Waffle House and finally Zaxby's. But this list is probably already out of date, as restaurants are regularly popping up around Disney World® and Universal Studios.

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, Long John Silver's, McDonalds, Panda Express, Papa John's Pizza, 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 eating at home, then as far supermarket shopping goes, that's simple; there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a five minute drive of Orange Tree. 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. 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 Orange Tree 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 Orange Tree, Clermont is located, the climate is defined as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Orange Tree, 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

Orange Tree 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 Orange Tree 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 Calabay Parc (the other community) and also 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 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 Orange Tree

As the most visited destination in the U.S. and the world's theme park capital, Orlando is the epicenter of tourism activity in the USA. As a result, all major US airlines and a large number of international airlines operate substantial flight schedules into and out of Orlando throughout the year. 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 Orange Tree.

Most major airlines fly into Orlando International Airport and although sometimes more convenient, Sandford, offers much less choice of routings in and out of Orlando. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Orange Tree, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Orange Tree 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 6 miles and then turn right onto US27. Continue on US27 for 4 miles and then turn right onto Holly Grove Boulevard and Orange Tree can be found on the left.
