We just got back from our Orlando vacation home and let me tell you right off the bat. We had THE BEST week there. 

After months of quarantine, distance learning, and the stress that comes along with it, my family desperately needed a vacation. The problem was I wanted to make sure we made a smart and safe choice for our family. Covid-19 was still on the rise and I didn’t want to put my family at risk. 

We decided an Orlando Vacation Home would be the perfect solution.

Why? Well, I am going to tell you why because this secret is too good to keep to myself.

We didn’t get to stay in just any vacation home, we stayed in a Global Resorts Vacation Home. This wasn’t like any other rental out there, this home was immaculate and filled with amenities. We had no reason to leave for 5 whole days! From swimming in the private pool to watching movies in its own movie theatre, there are so many reasons this home was one of the best we have ever stayed in. And I am going to share why.

Here are 5 reasons why this vacation home was the best option for our family during a pandemic.

One of my biggest concerns when planning this trip was if this was safe for my family. The COVID numbers were still increasing in Florida so I knew it was important to be careful when considering what we would do. We desperately needed a vacation but I wanted to know we would be safe. 

When I arrived at our home I came with bleach wipes and sanitizer but to be honest I didn’t need it. The home was pristine and little touches like the paper coverings on the toilet made us feel really safe. 



Since our vacation was all about the home we wanted to make sure we had enough space. This home definitely had that. With 8 bedrooms, a movie room, a game room, a huge kitchen, a dining room that seated 12, we had plenty of room!

The Amenities were what made this home really shine. I had never stayed in an Orlando vacation home like this before. We usually pick homes when we vacation but the amenities this home provided made us consider staying in a home every time we travel. 

This home had a game room with air hockey and pool. We spent a lot of afternoons here (most Florida summer afternoons have rain) and I loved that it was a closed room that way if it was too noisy we could close the door. 

One of our favorite things was the movie room. This was so cool and we spent almost every day there with popcorn in hand. The quality was amazing from the big projector screen and the seats so comfortable. I was able to use my own DVDs and even set up my Netflix account. My question is how I am going to convince my husband to build one in our home, I liked it that much.

Our Orlando Vacation home had its own pool! Actually, almost all of Global Resort Vacation Homes do! We didn’t have to worry about leaving because everything we needed was right in our home. It was so nice to swim any time we wanted and even use the jacuzzi after the kids were in bed.

We loved that this home had so much for our children and we also loved how much it had to do for us! After the kids went to bed we could swim and play, just like kids! Its one of the reasons we love staying in a home versus a hotel most of the time, Global Resort Homes just took it to a whole new level.

We did spend some time at the community water park. This is included as part of your stay and we were so impressed with how much there was to do. A lazy river, water slide, kids area, plus a tiki bar with food! You could spend a whole day here. We found that the area was very safe. Staff was wearing masks and they were constantly cleaning. The afternoons got a bit busy but the mornings were quiet and we had it mostly to ourselves.

I also can’t forget to tell you about the decor of the home because this was a huge attraction for my kids. Each of the rooms had a theme and it made my kids so excited about staying there. Also, the home was big enough they each had their own room, I call that a win!


This home was located in the Champions Gate community right outside of Disney. It was perfectly located close to the theme parks and lots of restaurants and shops. We didn’t utilize the home for this reason during this trip but we definitely will when we plan our next Disney vacation.

Great Customer Service

I can not forget to mention a really big part of our trip that stood out to me. That is the customer service we received while there. From planning to making sure we had everything we needed, the Global Resorts Staff went above and beyond. Everyone was so kind and very professional. That alone makes me want to give them more of my business.
