Although we normally spend our days talking to strangers from all over the world, convincing them of the charms they will discover in our Magnolia Villas escapes, today we want to change things up a bit. Today, we want to talk to you, our Orlando neighbors and friends, the ones who are fortunate to call this part of Florida your own hometown. You work hard every day of your life, and it is quite possible you have forgotten much of what Orlando has to offer—with the exception of anything Disney; it is impossible to forget Disney! This year, however, you have decided to forego expensive travel (Can you believe the gas prices?) and are opting for a quiet staycation, enjoying the opportunity to look at your favorite place through the eyes of a tourist. And although it would be perfectly ok if you chose to forego a vacation rental as well, there are a variety of reasons as to why you might want to check out the rentals in Orlando FL, we offer, some of which you may have already considered and others that you really didn’t think about at all. This guide to a fabulous staycation in our fantastic Florida hometown offers a sneak peek into a staycation spent with Magnolia Villas!

Don’t Waste Your Vacation Hours
Yes, you could save a little more money by staying at home, but do you really want to? Think about the weekends where you have planned to relax and do nothing, staying in your jammies, binge-watching your favorite streaming series, and eating all the bad food that you normally won’t let yourself enjoy. Remember that weekend you noticed the way your sofa was starting to look a little tattered and worn, and you spend all 48 hours trying to clean and repair it and ended up at the furniture store purchasing a new sofa? Or the one where you were scrolling through your Pinterest pics and decided that your yard was also looking ragged and another 48 hours later you ended up exhausted, filthy, and with an admittedly well-groomed landscape? Imagine what it would be like if you had an entire week to spend at home, painting rooms, crossing off items on your honey-do list, and quite possibly spending more money than you normally would on furnishings, bathroom cabinets, and that adorable wingback headboard you have been dreaming about owning. Yes, your home would benefit, and yes, we are all for home improvement, but what about the relaxing staycation you had planned? How are you going to feel on that first Monday back at work, feeling your back ache and noticing all your broken nails, and realizing that you forgot to rest, relax, and explore the wonders of your hometown?
Make the Most of a Staycation
Now that you are starting to realize the importance of a vacation rental, let us tell you what you can expect from our Magnolia Villas rentals in Orlando FL. Walk into spaces that are bright and airy for the first time, feeling the stresses of real life drop from your shoulders like an unwanted sweater on a hot summer day. You’ll discover that the sofas in our living rooms may even be more comfortable than the new one you purchased during your last weekend that was supposed to be all about relaxation, and that the smart televisions have pictures that are larger and clearer than the one in your own living room. Imagine seeing that wall of windows along the back wall of the property you have chosen to make your own home away from home, and seeing a screened-in lanai area anchored by a crystal-clear private pool that may or may not have a hot tub attached, surrounded by lounge chairs, patio sets, and a bright and shiny grill that your chief griller is already chomping at the bit to get his or her hands on! As your children jump in fully clothed, cheering loudly at the splash they make, you could yell at them for not being properly dressed for a swim, or you could take off your Fitbit, set your cell phone somewhere safe and out of the splash zone, and show those little rascals what a REAL cannon ball looks like! (Washers and dryers provided at most our properties ensure you won’t have to drag sodden clothes home at the end of your stay!) Playing games at the dining room table, falling asleep to your favorite streaming shows in bedrooms so comfortable and tranquil you won’t want to climb out again in the morning, (and you won’t have to, either) and comfortable adventures that don’t involve a single chore are the reasons your Orlando staycation should be spent with us!
Live Like a Tourist
Over the years we have learned a few facts about the human race that often surprises us, with the top fact being that we don’t really get to know the towns we live in! People who live by the ocean rarely spend a day at the beach, people who live in the mountains rarely visit the ski resorts in the winter, and people who live in Orlando have rarely spent more than a minute in the theme parks that make up a huge portion of our central Florida town! Your staycation with Magnolia Villas is destined to be filled with comfort but it also offers the perfect opportunity to live like a tourist. Take your kids out of school and spend a day at Disney, riding the rides, eating the foods, and yes, buying the souvenirs! After all, can you really say you have been to Disney if you don’t have the mouse ears embroidered with your name as proof of your adventures? If you really want to be amazed and awed, a day spent at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter will have you coming home to rewatch the series and marveling over how well they represented the movies in the park! Or, for you Star Wars fans, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge offers the chance to build your own lightsaber or droid and enjoy a sip of the blue or green milk that Luke Skywalker was fond of in the first movies of the series. Not all parks are big-named adventures, however, and a visit to Gatorland, located at 14501 S Orange Blossom Trail, will give you and your family a greater understanding of our state reptile as well as an exciting zipline adventure that has you flying safely over the cold-blooded creatures who live below! Orlando is known for its theme parks, and your staycation is the perfect time to play and explore each park, relishing the fun you don’t often have time for in your real life.
A Taste of the Town
You may have your favorite restaurant or pub that you hang out in on Friday night date night, but when was the last time you celebrated a special occasion in elegant style? The fully equipped kitchens in our Magnolia Villas staycation sanctuaries are fun to use, but Orlando has been ranked as the nation’s 2nd most popular city for foodies, and chances are there are a LOT of restaurants still waiting to be explored! Victoria & Alberts at Disney offers an amazing dinner experience that can be pricy but will make any special occasion seem that much more special.
