Visit Winter Park Lodging FAQ Page


  • Why should I rent a vacation rental instead of a hotel room?

    A vacation rental has all the comforts of home! All our units are unique in style and location.

    Each kitchen has everything you need to cook so you don’t have to eat out for every meal. Most of our units are kid friendly so everyone has their own beds and comfort. All our units have accurate photos so you know what you’re getting unlike hotels who can move you to any room with a view or no view.

  • What is the difference between VRBO/HomeAwayAirBnB and your site?

    VRBO/AirBnB only advertise properties to rent, we manage the property from maintenance to housekeeping and fix small issues. Booking direct is always cheaper but we advertise on these sites to get our homes the most exposure.
