If you’re looking for a break that includes sun, sand, water, and warmth no matter what time of year, consider Orlando for some fun and relaxation. While you may think making a reservation with a hotel booking site or travel agent is quick and easy, there are many benefits to direct booking in Orlando. We have a vacation rental to fit your vacation needs and style!

Cost of Direct Booking in Orlando

Whether you book through a travel agent or a popular booking website, there are fees involved. It’s how the business makes its money. You may be able to book accommodations, flight, rental vehicle, and all the rest in one fell swoop, but the convenience comes at an extra cost. Those fees are calculated before check out, but you won’t know the total cost of your trip before you’re ready to input your credit card information.

When you book direct with Tropical Escape Vacation Homes, you know exactly what you’ll be paying before you check out. Many of our homes have the starting daily rates contained in the listing. You’ll pay that, plus regular taxes and any pet fees – and that’s it. We don’t charge processing fees or tack on hidden costs.

Know Before You Go

When you’re searching popular vacation booking websites, the information you get is minimal. You get a list of amenities, a short write up about the property, and a few pictures. Browse our website! You’ll find all the information you need. From the basics like how many guests can stay to a thorough walk through description of the property and numerous pictures, you won’t be left guessing. You’ll know what you need to pack, what you’ll need to get when you arrive, and all the property details you could need.

Don’t Settle for Less

Staying at a hotel or resort in Orlando is usually easy to book in addition to other travel needs like flights and rental cars. The trade-off is that resorts don’t typically offer the comforts and conveniences of home. A private rental with Tropical Escape Vacation Rentals does. No matter how long you’re here, you can pack light and make use of the in-unit laundry – no more overweight baggage fees or squeezing in souvenirs.

While many hotels and resorts offer complimentary Wi-Fi, you’re sharing that connection with hundreds of other guests. Your data may not be secure, and your connection will be slower due to the high traffic on the connection. Avoid sluggish speeds and enjoy the privacy of a private Wi-Fi connection. Confidently share pics and video of Orlando adventures or send email updates to loved ones back home.

Everything You Need

We hope you browse all of our vacation rental offerings before deciding on the one that fits your vacation needs and style. You can be rest assured that the pictures and walk-throughs of our rentals are as up to date as possible. We also let you know if there are any big changes in progress that may not be reflected in pictures due to incomplete work. You won’t call us saying “this isn’t what I saw in the pictures on the website!” when you walk in to find drab colors, fabrics and furniture in disrepair, or outdated kitchen appliances. We want you to call us to say, “the pictures don’t do this place justice!”

Step in, look around at your home away from home, and feel all of your cares and worries wash away. Take in the open floor plan, scan the great room to find the perfect place you can kick up your heels, relax, and make the most of an Orlando vacation. Everything is right there for you for vacation perfection. Large great rooms combine living, cooking, and dining functions so it won’t be hard to discover that place. Living areas host comfortable and stylish couches and chairs, some of which reflect the beach atmosphere. Many of our Orlando rentals boast large entertainment centers that dominate the space with large flat screen TVs, as well as all the electronics needed for movies, TV, and other digital entertainment. The Wi-Fi connection means streaming your favorite movies or shows when you can’t find a show on the local channels.

Unique Properties for Unique Guests

Each of our Orlando vacation rentals boast comfortable beds that boast comfortable pillows and mattresses, cozy sheets, and even cozier blankets to wrap yourself in for a good night’s sleep. Your mind may be on that good night’s sleep or much-needed nap, but you’ll also take a look around the room and notice the cohesive designs that run throughout the house – through living and private areas. The look may tie in an Orlando entertainment theme or elegant vibe, while still giving each room its own personality and feel. Different fabrics and décor make each room stand out and add a bit of fun and style, rather than the plain and same furnishings and décor of a hotel or resort room.

Many of our vacation rentals have multiple suites, each one as decadent as the one before, so there’s no arguing about who sleeps where. In addition to multiple suites, some rentals even feature bunk rooms and kid-friendly spaces they’re sure to claim as their own. Spacious closets and large dressers in each room give you the storage you need for all your items so you can unpack and live like you’re at home while on vacation, while in-unit laundry assures you’ll have clean clothes for every day of your trip.

Spend Time Outside

Orlando has plenty of opportunities for outdoor fun. When you don’t want to pack up the rental car to find outdoor fun, take a dip in the private pool. If your home is located in a resort community, there are often community pools, a lazy river, and more. After a day of exploring and excitement, soak sore muscles in a hot tub. If the water isn’t where you want to be, take a seat in one of the multiple lounge chairs or outdoor living seating. Before the day begins, or any time of day, take your coffee or another drink out onto a private patio, balcony, or deck. Gather together for a meal cooked on the large BBQ grill, then add the convenience of wet bars, mini-fridges, and outdoor seating to enjoy a group meal al fresco. Select rentals even have outdoor games and activities to keep everyone busy inside and out.

Indoor Entertainment Available

You’ve made sure to experience and enjoy every outdoor activity and place to laze the day away. But you’re on vacation, so you don’t need a reason to stay in and play at your vacation rental. Select rentals feature a TV in every bedroom, as well as the living space, board games, toys, books, magazines, and many other items and activities that will keep boredom at bay when you spend a day in. With so much to do indoors and out, you’ll never hear the words “I’m bored!” when you stay in a vacation rental provided by Tropical Escape Vacation Homes.


You clicked “Next” or another button on a large booking site and something went wrong. Call up the website customer service and sit on hold for endless minutes, only to speak to multiple agents to finally get your needs met. Additionally, these agents likely work in a central call center, or even from home, and may know very little about the destination you’re trying to book. When you book direct with Tropical Escape Vacation Homes, you can call us up anytime during business hours. We’ll have a knowledgeable, local employee available to answer your questions and help in any way you need.

It doesn’t stop at the booking process either. Once you’ve arrived and are enjoying your stay, should anything happen or a question or concern arise, you can call us and we’ll help remedy the situation as soon as possible.

No Cookie-Cutter Experiences

Just as our private, individual vacation homes are unique when compared with a hotel, so is experience you get while staying with us. We know each guest is unique, and their vacation needs and style are unique, too. We tailor our services and guest experiences so you have a vacation that’s unique to you and your loved ones.

While some of our homes located in resorts may have a similar look on the outside, that’s where the similarities end. Once you step inside, everything is different, from the décor inside to the amenities outside.

Targeted Questions with Targeted Answers

If you have a specific question, whether it’s about the rental itself or the neighborhood, we likely have the answer. Our employees are all local residents who know the ins and outs of Orlando and the surrounding area.

Popular vacation booking websites may have some basic information available, but locals have more in-depth knowledge and can answer those questions, as well as offer extra details, tips, and tricks to make your vacation better.

We Care About You and Your Things

If your child left their favorite stuffed animal on the bed, or you realize you left a souvenir in a drawer, but you’re already at the airport to go home, what do you do? You call your accommodations and report the item as lost, and beg housekeeping to keep a lookout for it and return it to you. Sadly, they may have already cleaned the room and tossed the items.

If you get home and find that you’ve lost or forgotten something, you can hop on our website and let us know. Our Guest Information tab links to a form you can fill out to let us know you’re looking for your item(s). It asks for some basic information, like which property you stayed at, where you had or saw the item last, and whether or not there are any identifying marks or tags. Provide us with your contact info, including mailing/street address, and we’ll get your prized item back to you when we find it.

Know Where You’ll Be

When you’re looking for your dream vacation rental, you can browse all our rentals, or narrow your search. Browse by type of home, amenities offered, community/location, and more. No matter how you view our rentals, you’ll see information like the unit number as well as the community. You’ll get the full address after booking, but knowing your home is in Storey Lake or Reunion Resort before you arrive will cut down on getting lost and driving around aimlessly.

Other booking sites may provide the information, but it’s often in the fine print within the listing. You’ll get an address to plug into your rental vehicle’s or phone’s GPS system, but knowing the neighborhood it’s in is an extra bit of information that will help you get to your destination safely and with confidence.

Repeat Guests

No matter how many times you stay in a hotel or resort, the staff will truly never know you. Unless you stay for extended periods of time in the same room, your frequent guest status is just another detail in your profile.
