What You Can Expect to Find in a Holiday Villa in Florida


Visitors: 185

There are some great holiday villas available to rent as holiday home accommodation. Many of these holiday villas are quite spectacular and offer holiday makers the holiday of a life time. They are well designed and laid out with many having several bedrooms.

Many of the master bedrooms in a holiday villa will have doors straight out onto the veranda or pool area if they are located on the ground floor of the villa. If the master bedroom is on the first floor of the villa it will usually have the best view from its windows. In some luxury villas there will be a balcony leading off the master bedroom.

In warmer climates the bedrooms in the holiday villa will have air conditioning or fans to keep them cool. In larger villas there will sometimes be another larger bedroom suite with its own bathroom. This will not be as big as the master bedroom but will still be a good size. The other bedrooms will usually be smaller in the villa and may have a Jack and Jill bathroom or may share the main family bathroom.

Kitchens in holiday villas are usually extremely well fitted out. They will normally have a microwave, cooker and a large fridge freezer. Many villas also have a double sink with a dishwasher below. Off the kitchen there is usually a washing machine and tumbler drier. The kitchens in holiday villas are usually open plan and many have a kitchen bar to eat at with a dining room area just off it.

Some holiday villas have a double garage attached to them and you can usually access the house from the garage. In some cases the holiday villa owners will have converted the garage into a games room and you may find such things there as a pool table and table tennis table.

Most downstairs living areas in holiday villas are open plan. You will sometimes find a dinning area just off the kitchen in the villa. Then there is usually a sitting are and television. Most holiday villas in warm climates have air conditioning downstairs or fans to keep the villa cool.

If the holiday villa has a swimming pool it will usually be at the back of the villa. Most villas have patio doors leading out of the villa straight onto the swimming pool. This pool deck area may be made of concrete or tiled. In most cases a pool deck area by a holiday villa will be painted with non slip paint or tiles that have a good grip. Around the pool you will usually find chairs and sun loungers. Many holiday villas have a table and chairs just outside the villa patio doors for holiday makers to eat at. It is worth checking before you stay in your holiday villa if the swimming pool is heated.

In summer months the swimming pool in your holiday villa is usually warm enough but it is handy to have a heater to take the chill away. At other times of the year it is important to have a pool heater for your holiday villa as sometimes the water in the swimming pool can be cold. Before going on your villa holiday check to see if there is heating available and also how you pay for it. In some cases the heating is included in the price of the holiday villa and sometimes you have to pay for the heating separately.

Some holiday villas have a cover that you can pull over the swimming pool at night to help keep the heat in. The villa owners will also have somebody come to clean and maintain the swimming pool once a week. Most pools will have chlorine added and you must stay out of the swimming pool for a couple of hours after the chlorine has been added.
