Veranda Palms Vacation Rentals

Veranda Palms - A Newer Vacation Rental Gated Community

Veranda Palms in Kissimmee, Florida is an upscale gated vacation rental community offering spacious, executive style homes which have been built adjoining a lake and nature reserve. The homes and villas here are detached one and two storey properties, some of which also enjoy lake views. Veranda Palms is a comparatively new vacation rental community which initially was built with just 50 homes, but is being developed further. So that may be something to be aware of.

About Veranda Palms

Veranda Palms is located close to Highway192 in Kissimmee and so is ideally situated for guests staying in a vacation home on the community to take advantage of all the shops and restaurants that the 192 has to offer. The gated entrance of the subdivision is approached by a tree-lined avenue bordered by well maintained lawns and this gives a clue as to the quality of the whole community. The area around Veranda Palms forms part of a large conservation area, so you'll want to bring your binoculars with you so that the kids can spot the plentiful bird-life and other wildlife that call the area home. In this tranquil setting, the rigours of everyday life are likely to seem a million miles away.

Staying in a Home on Veranda Palms

The community consists of 4, 5 and 6 bedroom luxury-style, predominantly two storey, detached executive homes which range in size from 1,600 to 3,300 sq,ft. Veranda Palms is a mixture of residential and vacation rental properties. All the homes here have private screened pools, are fully air-conditioned with fitted, often high end upgraded kitchens. It's also worth noting that a lot of homes, particularly the more expensive vacation rentals, often come equipped with a games room which will usually include some or all of the following: a pool table, a table tennis, air hockey and arcade games. Also, more owners are now including Xbox or Playstation 4 Gaming consoles in their homes. These will invariably be provided as part of the rental.

Reaching the Attractions from Veranda Palms

Florida is the top travel destination in the world and 2016 saw the arrival of over 112.8 million visitors to the Sunshine State. The entire state enjoys its share of tourism, but it's Central Florida and in particular Orlando that sees the lion's share of these visitors. And if Orlando is the main attraction in Central Florida, then it's the theme parks that are the main attraction in Orlando. Over the past sixty years Orlando has been transformed by the arrival of the likes of Disney World® and Universal Studios.
Central Florida's theme parks, whilst mainly in Orlando, are also spread south down as far as Tampa and are all accessible on a day trip from Veranda Palms. 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 one of these can be done on a day out. Both of these beaches are within a 90 minute drive of Veranda Palms.

Shops Restaurants around Veranda Palms

Head out in the car from Veranda Palms 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 US192. 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 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 Veranda Palms. 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. 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 Veranda Palms 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 Veranda Palms, Kissimmee is located, the climate is defined as humid subtropical, while areas to the south have a true tropical climate.

So, when staying in Veranda Palms, 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 Vacation Homes to Veranda Palms

We would suggest that if you find a vacation rental home on Veranda Palms that meets your criteria, then you should inquire on its availability, but you should also continue to look for other homes, both on Veranda Palms 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. In the Davenport/Clerment areas, 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 looking to spend a little more, then we'd suggest checking out both 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.

Driving to Veranda Palms

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 Veranda Palms.

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 Veranda Palms, but we generally advise on this one because of its simplicity. To reach Veranda Palms from Orlando International Airport, take FL-417S towards Disney World® and continue until reaching International Drive/FL535 (exit #6). Take FL-535 S until joining US Hwy-192 in a easterly direction. Once on Hwy 192 E, drive for just under a mile before turning left onto Seven Dwarfs Lane which soon becomes Princess Way. Veranda Palms can be found straight ahead.

It's also worth mentioning that Highway 192 is Kissimmee's primary tourist road. 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.
