Tuscany at Westside Vacation Rentals

Tuscany at Westside - An Italian Themed Vacation Rental Community

Tuscany at Westside in Kissimmee, Florida is a small and comparatively new vacation rental community. In keeping with its name, the subdivision has been attractively designed along the lines of an Italian Tuscan village with pale colored homes with terracotta style tiled roofs. Tuscany at Westside has a total of seventy homes, so it's a small and fairly intimate community. As with all communities in this area, it's just over 15 minutes from Orlando's Disney World® and 30 minutes from Universal Studios. Plus, for golfers, there are a number of top quality courses within a few minutes drive of the community.

Staying at Tuscany at Westside

Built in 2012, Tuscany at Westside is a small vacation rental community located in the westerly end of Kissimmee. The developers who built Tuscany also developed the sister community of Calabria, which is close by.

The upscale vacation rental community of Tuscany at Westside is now a well established, attractive and well maintained gated community which comprises both vacation rental homes and private residential properties. The homes and villas on the community are two storey properties which have between 3 and 5 bedrooms. As well as the differing number of bedrooms, the homes range in size from 2,100 to 2,750 sq.ft. Although the properties vary, they will come fully furnished with a good standard of furnishings and have screened swimming pools, fully equipped, often upgraded, kitchens and laundry rooms. A number of villas have games rooms with all or some of the following: pool tables, air hockey, foosball, table tennis and darts, etc. It's worth noting that the games rooms in vacation rental homes are normally in the converted garage space and so may, or may not, be air conditioned.

All of the vacation rental homes on Tuscany at Westside should supply just about everything you'll need to enjoy your vacation. They will also be locally managed and so if there are any problems with the home, they will be looked after by trained property management personnel, leaving you to enjoy your vacation.

If you're looking to cook in the rental home, then you'll need to pick up the food from a supermarket. There are three large supermarkets (Walmart, Publix and Target) within a two or three miles of Tuscany at Westside. So, it won't take long to run out to get that bottle of wine and the shrimp for the barbeque.

If you're looking for something beyond supermarkets then you'll have to drive a little further. Fifteen plus 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 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.

With this many shopping options within a 30 minute drive, retail therapy is never too far away.

The Tuscany at Westside 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 Tuscany at Westside, Kissimmee is located, the climate is defined as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Tuscany at Westside, 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

We'd suggest that if you find a vacation rental home on Tuscany at Westside that ticks all the right boxes, then send off an inquiry about it's exact rental price and availability, but also do continue to look for other homes, both on Tuscany at Westside and on other communities. So, we'll list a few examples starting with a couple of Davenport and Clermont communities which are further away from most of the attractions, but which are often priced more competitevely than vacation rental homes in the Kissimmee area. So, you should probably firstly look at the sister community of Calabria. Then, in the Davenport/Clermont area, you might want to consider Champions Gate which is a very good community for golfers and Four Corners and also Tuscan Hills which is another great spot, if you're a golfer. If you're on a tighter budget, then take a look at Crescent Lakes . And then in the Kissimmee area, you might look at vacation rentals in Emerald Island which is close to Disney and Terra Verde , which again is close to the parks.

If you're comfortable with spending a little more, then we'd suggest checking out Formosa Gardens, or Windsor Hills and also Windsor Palms which are both full resorts and so offer a different experience.

The quality of all of the vacation rental communities around Disney area is excellent and the generally the homes on these communities are of a very high quality. So, we'd suggest that as a first step in your hunt for a vacation home, you try and 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.

Additional scheduled airline flights also arrive at Orlando Sanford International Airport (SFB) which is a little over an hour's travel time away. There are a number of driving routes from Orlando International Airport to Tuscany at Westside, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Tuscany at Westside 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 Highway 192 in a westerly direction. Once on Highway 192 W, drive for 6 miles and then turn left towards Westside Boulevard. After just over a mile, turn right Rocella Court and the Tuscany at Westside will be directly ahead.
