Enjoy the Comforts of Home with Global Resort Homes

While in Kissimmee for the premiere of Disneynature’s Chimpanzee, my home away from home was a beautiful five-bedroom, five bath home courtesy of Global Resort Homes.

Our home was in the Windsor Hills community, only 1.5 miles from the Walt Disney World Resort – convenient to the parks, shops and restaurants.   With an enormous kitchen, a full-sized washer and dryer , a game room and a pool with a hot tub –  Global Resort Homes takes vacationing to a whole new level.

Throughout my stay, I couldn’t help but think about this being such a fantastic place for families.  Typically, when staying in hotels we are confined to one room – and when the girls go to bed…  I’m either sitting in the dark (with the glow of my computer screen) or I go to bed too.

Staying in a Global Resort Home allows parents to enjoy their stay, long after the kids are in bed!  Relax after a long day at the parks in the hot tub or maybe have a relaxing dinner in the formal dining room.















I also learned something new during my stay with Global Resort Homes…. they aren’t a timeshare community.  There is no sales pitch, no tours – nothing!  They are simply a property management company that works to find you the right vacation home for your family.  No strings attached…  and they are awesome!  (How cool is that?! )

Also as part of the community, vacationers also have access to the area’s recreation center featuring some really cool playgrounds, a fitness center, sand volleyball and basketball courts.

Looking for something a little smaller than a house?  Global Resort Homes are located in nine different communities throughout the Orlando area.  Whether you need a two-bedroom condo or a five bedroom house – you can’t go wrong staying with Global Resort Homes.  I was truly impressed with my stay.

I’m hoping to go back to visit this Fall and take my family – I want them to experience the lifestyle of Global Resort Homes too!
