We get asked this a lot! So much so that we added this to our FAQ. The simple answer is to think of Orlando vacation rental homes like a hotel. And, legally, it is a hotel registered with the state of Florida!
So, no need to bring linens, towels, pillows, etc. But, unlike a hotel, vacation rentals in the Orlando Florida area come with a fully stocked kitchen!
We have found, however, that unlike staying at a friend’s home, the tradition of vacation rentals in the Orlando Florida area is to leave the home free of excess soap, toilet paper, laundry soap, dishwasher detergent, etc., so you may need to buy these items on your first grocery shopping trip. We are trying to change this tradition, at least for our American guests who seem to expect some of this left behind by the previous guest, but we risk annoying our European guests who have been renting homes for a much longer time and are used to a more “sterile” environment upon their arrival.
So, leave your sheets, towels and pillow behind when heading to vacation rentals in the Orlando Florida area, but bring your bathing suit and your sense of adventure! We have lots of fun waiting for you!
