As you surf for suitable Orlando vacation house rentals for your family, you may see features such as “South facing pool”, or “West facing pool”. Should you care about this? Maybe so, maybe not. It really depends on what you and your family are planning on doing during your stay in Orlando.
Virtually all Orlando vacation house rentals have a private pool for your enjoyment! The pool is usually located in the back of the house and is surrounded by a screened in Lanai. Some visitors seek out South facing pools so that when Orlando is having cooler temperatures or windy winter days, the pool deck is warm enough for tanning, especially since cooler winds tend to come from the North and will largely get blocked by the house.
If this is important to you depends on how much time you will be sitting by the pool vs. visiting the parks and the other Orlando attractions. It also depends on what time of near you come (during the winter months we will get some cooler days on occasion) and how much sun you want.
Most South facing pools have some shade so that you can escape from the sun in the hot summer months or when you no longer wish to tan. And most Orlando vacation house rentals that aren’t advertised as South facing usually have some portion of the pool deck in the sun for much of the day.
So, you may or may not care about a South facing pool in your Orlando vacation house rental but rest assured you will have plenty of sun during your visit to Sunny Orlando!
