Imagine..Renting Your Own 5-Star House in Orlando with a Private Pool, Movie Theatre and Games Room.


Orlando is home to more than a dozen theme parks. Most famous is, of course, Walt Disney World Resort with parks including Epcot and the Magic Kingdom as well as the water parks. There's also Universal Orlando, with Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. And, let's not forget SeaWorld Orlando, Fun Spot America and even Gatorland to name just a few.

Away from the parks there is world-class shopping, relaxing resorts and fantastic dining experiences. While the sheer number of things to do in Orlando can be bewildering, the huge choice of houses can also make it daunting to pick your dream vacation home.

That's why the experts at 5 Star Villa Holidays have done the hard work for you by selecting the very best houses for rent in Orlando. After a hard - but fun - day at the parks you'll want a perfect home from home to return to. But which park will you visit first? And which home will you choose? Take a look below at our expert guide to the best theme parks and luxury villas in Orlando:

I look forward to helping you choose your dream house to rent in Orlando.

All the best,

John Paul Donnelly

5 Star Villa Holidays' Top 10 theme parks in Orlando

1 Universal Island of Adventure

A huge range of rollercoasters and attractions have seen the park win a number of international awards.Just one day is unlikely to be enough with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Hogsmeade, Marvel Super Hero Island, The Lost Continent, Toon Lagoon, Jurassic Park, Skull Island and Seuss Landing to visit.

2 Disney's Magic Kingdom

Famous for the iconic Cinderella's Castle this is the park that started it all. A favourite for kids to see their favourite character come to life across six different lands. A trip to Disney really is a magical experience for the whole family. Don't miss the Disney parade and fireworks at the end of the day.

3 Universal Studios

Home to the Minions of Despicable Me and The Simpsons, this family friendly park has a huge number of Hollywood inspired rides and attractions.

4 SeaWorld Orlando

A long-time favourite on the list of Orlando attractions, SeaWorld remains one of the most popular places in the world to see magnificent sea creatures. Dolphin Cove and Stingray Lagoon give families the chance for a hands-on experience with these amazing creatures. Be prepared to be scared in the Shark Encounter tunnel. There are also plenty of themed rides and shows to provide a memorable experience.

5 Legoland

With more than 50 rides, shows and attractions over 150 acres south of Orlando this is one of the biggest parks in Florida and is a great option for smaller visitors.

6 Epcot

Cross off most of your world travel bucket list in just one day at Epcot. With the Future World, World Showcase, Frozen Ever After and your favourite characters from Finding Nemo, Epcot is a unique mix of education, innovation and fun.

7 Disney's Hollywood Studios

Disney's home for the Star Wars franchise, Hollywood Studios has been reinvigorated in recent years. Star Tours is one of the most adrenaline-fuelled rides on offer. And there are plenty more epic adventures to be had. Time to step into a galaxy far, far away!

8 Discovery Cove

This all-inclusive resort is a sister park to SeaWorld Orlando. It's a family friendly attraction for those adverse to long queues. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with rays, feed tropical birds and more. Fabulous for little wildlife enthusiasts.

9 Universal's Volcano Bay

This tropical themed water park in Orlando is part of the Universal Resort. While away the hours relaxing on the lazy rivers or take a terrifying plunge. The Ko'okiri Body Plunge is a near vertical trap door slide that falls 125 feet through the volcano. Are you brave enough?

10 Gatorland

Visiting the big theme parks every day is fabulous, but you may want to do something completely different. This budget-friendly, weird and wacky theme park bills itself as "Orlando's best half-day attraction". Where else can you feed albino gators hotdogs, wrestle with gators and then take a zipline above them all? After all the hi-tech effects, rollercoasters and rides at other parks Gatorland is a refreshing change of pace.

5 Star Villa Holidays' best places to stay near Orlando

So, now that you have chosen your favorite theme parks to put on your itinerary, where should you stay? Below are some of the best locations to make your base:

Guest Reviews - Houses for Rent in Orlando

Guest stayed Orlando Mansion 2654


This home was perfect for our large party. There was ample bath towels and plenty of kitchenware for our needs. The two refrigerators, two dishwashers, and two laundry rooms were great to have. The common space accommodated everyone with plenty of room to lounge and visit. Easy commute to Disney and Universal with plenty of stores for necessities and food close by.


Brett, Lives in Midvale, UT, United States



The home was very nice and clean. My family and I really enjoyed our vacation at JP's place. It was definitely home away from home. If we visit Orlando again we will choose to stay at his home again!


Shay, Millbrook, AL - United States



Nice house perfect for large groups. Pool and pool heat were outstanding. You are directly across from the large community pool, restaurant, and lazy river. Easy access to parks, stores and restaurants. Check in and check out was easy. Communication was great with quick response times. We booked this less than 24 hours before we arrived due to another place canceling and we had no issues.

Our Story

In 2005, John Paul Donnelly, began his luxury villa journey. He spent three years building resorts and holiday apartments in Alanya, Turkey, along with his brother, Joe. The concept was to create the most luxurious villas on the Turkish coastline and provide clients, along with their family and friends, the opportunity to enjoy exclusive holidays together.

By 2008, after the successful development of 3 resorts, JP had well and truly fallen into the world of villa rentals. With a portfolio of 6 villas and a desire to explore new places, he decided it was time to take the villa rental business outside of Turkey. He wanted to give his clients access to beautiful holiday rentals in destinations across the globe.

The expanding villa rental company was rebranded in 2011 to 5 Star Villa Holidays, and today 5 Star Villa Holidays offers over 10,000 luxury villas around the world.

JP and his partner, Helena are currently travelling the globe, devoted to hand selecting the best villas and property management companies, and giving them their stamp of approval! 5 Star Villa Holidays' ambition goes beyond being an ordinary holiday rental company. It is a marketplace for luxurious and exclusive villas around the world.
