7 Vacation Rentals in Orlando Waiting to Welcome You Home

There's more to Orlando than Mickey Mouse, and where you choose to stay can make all the difference in how your Florida vacation unfolds.

There’s so much to see and do in Orlando, Florida beyond the renowned theme parks. Gated communities near Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando put families close to the fun, while homes and apartments closer to downtown offer gorgeous parks and exciting nightlife.

Whether you are looking for accommodations close to the magic of Central Florida’s theme parks or something closer to the action downtown, there’s an Orlando vacation rental to suit your needs. From cozy apartments perfect for couples to large multi-family houses, each of these properties offer a “home away from home” where you can rest and recharge, no matter how you prefer to spend your day.

Affordable Romantic Getaway Rental in Orlando's North Quarter

Sonder manages properties around the world, each with stylish, professionally-cleaned spaces, contact-free service, and modern appliances. Located in the North Quarter neighborhood of downtown Orlando, this Sonder property has all the comforts of home, including fresh towels, tea and coffee, shower amenities, a fully-stocked kitchen, and an in-suite washer and dryer.

Even with its floor to ceiling windows and gorgeous downtown views, you didn’t come all the way to Orlando to stay inside your apartment (as tempting as it may be here). This building’s Orange Avenue location lets you see everything Orlando has to offer. You’re just steps away from the Orlando Urban Trail – a network of mixed-use trails that wander through the downtown area. Sports lovers are a short drive away from Exploria Stadium, home to the Orlando City Football Club, and the Amway Center, headquarters for the Orlando Magic.

In the evening, head out to Church Street for a night of drinks and dining or stroll through nearby Lake Eola Park.
