Providence Vacation Rentals

Providence Vacation Rentals - A Florida Travel Guide

The Providence Vacation Rentals Guide from Tripelli - A handy insight into the rental homes and villas in Providence, plus the nearby shops, restaurants & golf courses.

Providence Golf Resort and Country Club is an upscale gated community set in 2,200 acres of well-manicured lawns, beautiful lakes and palm tree lined roads. In addition to the impressive golf course, it also offers an exclusive clubhouse just a short walk from most homes. Providence is comprised of a number of small communities, or subdivisions, most of which are residential, but there are several which are designated as short term rental, including Rosemont Woods, Victoria Woods and the newly built Crofton Springs. So, if golf, combined with the Disney World® parks wrapped up in a luxury vacation rental home is your idea of the perfect vacation, then you'll want to check out Providence.

Staying at Providence

The vacation rental homes on the Providence subdivisions range 4 to 10 bedrooms with an accompanying 3 to 8 bathrooms. They tend to be larger homes with 2,200 to 4,200 sq.ft. of fully air conditioned living space and the trend seems to be for the new community of Crofton Springs, which at the time of writing is still in development, to have the larger properties.

You can expect the homes on Providence to come with a lot of high end features, ranging from multiple master bedroom suites, fitness rooms, fully equipped games rooms and upgraded kitchens. The decor and furnishings in the homes will generally be contemporary, or modern and of a high standard.

The Amenities at Providence

When it comes to amenities, the elephant in the room here has to be the Michael Dasher designed, championship golf course. This superb course offers everything you would expect from a Floridian high end course. There are also a number of pro instructors based in the elaborate golf clubhouse who can provide lessons for all skill levels, including children. So, golf can become a family affair at Providence.

There are two community swimming pools; one is a resort-style pool with slides which is set in a large pool deck and furnished with sun loungers and miscellaneous pool furniture. For the more exercise minded, there's a also a lap pool for keeping in shape.

Nearby, there are a number of floodlit tennis courts and a family oriented fitness and aquatic center, which features an array of state of the art exercise equipment. Within the fitness center there is an activities room where aerobics classes, karate, and other activities take place.

Outside of the activities offered within the clubhouse and swimming pool areas, there are a number of extra wide sidewalks intended for safe bicycling, jogging, and walking.

Providence on Youtube

In order to write our Central Disney Area Destination Guide, 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 Providence, 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.

Journeying to the Attractions from Providence

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 Providence. 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 Providence:

Disney World® Parks - 15+ Minutes
SeaWorld - 20 Minutes
Discovery Cove - 20 Minutes
Universal Studios - 30 Minutes
Fantasy of Flight - 40 Minutes
Adventure Island, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Busch Gardens, Tampa - 75 Minutes
Kennedy Space Center - 75 Minutes
Cocoa Beach - 70 Minutes
Clearwater Beach - 90 Minutes

Golfing Near Providence

Grown-ups can have a good time in the land of Mickey Mouse too. The Sunshine State offers more golf courses than any golf destination in the world, so it's not too hard to find something that suits your game. There are many different options for style of play, location and budget featuring enough sand, water and sun to satisfy all golfers' needs. So, if you're a golfer, you cannot pass up the opportunity to play one of the best courses in Orlando, Florida. Here are some golf courses near Providence with approximate travel times:

Champions Gate - 10 Minutes
Cypresswood Golf and Country Club - 30 Minutes
Orange Lake Golf - 15 Minutes
Swiss Fairways Golf Course - 25 Minutes
Legends Golf and Country Club - 15 Minutes
Highlands Reserve - 10 Minutes
Falcon's Fire - 25 Minutes
Green Valley Country Club - 20 Minutes
The Monarch at Royal Highlands - 20 Minutes
Waldorf Astoria - 25 Minutes

Restaurants Near to Providence

The tourist areas around the parks are chocked full of restaurants, so if you're thinking of taking the kids out for dinner, then we could probably name a restaurant or two that are within a ten to fifteen minute drive of Providence. Why not check out some of the following eateries that are in the area, including Applebee's, 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 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, 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.

Supermarkets
If eating at home is on the menu, then you'll have to find a supermarket nearby. Staying in a vacation rental at Providence makes that relatively straightforward as there are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a short drive of the community. So, when you make a last minute decision to have that BBQ, you'll always be able to pick up the supplies needed.

Other Shopping
If you're looking for something outside of supermarket shopping, then you'll have to drive a little further. Ten minutes drive on the US27 will take you to Posner Park where there's an IMAX theater, plus a selection of restaurants and shops which include: JC Penney, Best Buy, Staples, Target, PetSmart, DICK'S Sporting Goods.

Mall Shopping
If you're looking for more upscale shopping, then you'll want to drive east towards Orlando. With its upscale malls, shopping outlets and boutiques, Orlando offers a range of shopping options. 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 opportunities within 30 minutes driving distance, you had better bring a backup credit card.

The Providence Weather

When staying in Florida, no matter where you stay, you'll never be far from the ocean, so as a result, the weather across the Sunshine state is partly determined by the ocean. In addition, climatically 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 Providence is located, the climate is classified as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Providence, you should expect weather ranging from warm and pleasant during the non-summer months, through to extremely hot during the summer months of June to September. The sun shines on most days in Florida and the temperature doesn't usually fall below freezing (0°C / 32F). These facts should give you a clue as to why Disney World® and Universal Studious and the other parks were built in Orlando.

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 very hot and very humid most days, with temperatures in June, July and August reaching into the mid 90s F.

Other Vacation Homes to Consider

Providence is a popular vacation rental community and if you've found a home that you like the look of, then you should send off an inquiry concerning its availability and exact prices. However, why stop there? There are dozens of vacation rental communtities in the Disney area, so it's worth your while checking out a few of the others. The three main areas for vacation rental communities around Disney are Davenport, Clermont and Kissimmee. The communities in Davenport and Clermont are a longer drive from most of the attractions, but they're often priced better than homes on the communities in Kissimmee. So, starting in Davenport, 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.

If you spend a little more, then we'd advise you to take 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 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 Directions to Providence

With seven of the top theme parks all in one sunny location, Orlando is the theme park hub of the planet. And, with more than 105 million visitors in 2016, this Central Florida city is also the most visited tourist destination in the United States. So, it's little wonder that all the US domestic and most international airlines are capitalizing on this success themselves by providing huge numbers of scheduled flights in and out of Orlando. 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 Providence.

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 Providence, but we generally advise on this one. To reach Providence 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 58 (CR532) towards Poinciana/Kissimmee. Continue on Osceola Polk Line Road. Take Lake Wilson Road, Polk 54/Ronald Reagan Parkway and US-17 S/US-92 W to Providence Boulevard. Providence can be found directly ahead.
