My Stay at Global Resort Homes

2691 Manesty Lane

This summer I entered a blog giveaway posted by Toni at Just Stop Screaming and I won. (Thank you Toni!)

My prize was sponsored by Global Resort Homes, Boggy Creek Airboat Rides, and Kissimmee Guest Services. It included a one week stay in a Global Resort Home, airboat rides for 4 and SeaWorld passes for 4. We went this past fall and had an absolute blast.

We stayed in a 6 bedroom 4 bath home on Manesty Lane in Windsor Hills. The home had a full kitchen, laundry room, game room, pool and hot tub. I brought my crockpot with the intention of cooking dinner most evenings to save on dining out. I needn’t have worried – there was a crockpot already there!

Big Kitchen

The first half of the week we had my parents and Cameron’s parents stay with us. I had invited my brother and sister’s families too, but prior commitments kept them busy. Had they decided to join us, there was room. There was room for EVERYONE, and no one was cramped. We each had space to retreat to and plenty of living spaces to hang out as a family. My in-laws loved the pool and spa and swam every night.


The second half of the week my friend Amber came with her two kids. We swam, hit the parks, swam more, ate in, shopped and eventually fell over. It was great.

Additional living area. This turned out to be the kids’ favorite spot.

The next time we are in Orlando for a family vacation, we will definitely look into staying with Global Resort Homes again. Its worth the cost for the space and amenities! We were 10 minutes from the Disney park, 15 minutes from SeaWorld and super close to all Kissimmee and Orlando have to offer!

Have you ever stayed in a rental home instead of a hotel?
