The Weather

Most of the time, Orlando has great weather! But just like everywhere else on earth, occasionally the weather may be disappointing. *Gasp!*

Every three years, a hurricane may blow through! Those can be challenging. In the summer, it rains almost every afternoon for an hour or so, but then the sun quickly comes back out.

In the winter months, there may be a cold snap just like the rest of the country experiences. But while the rest of the country is shivering in -30º F temperatures, Orlando may be shivering in 40º F temperatures. Be aware that on occasion, the weather can get cool, or rainy… but take comfort in the fact that no matter what the weather is like, it is likely far better than what the rest of the country is experiencing at that very moment!

Of course, bad weather while on vacation can be disappointing, and we hope you’ll have nothing but the best experience, but do remember that your caring vacation rental owner isn’t responsible for the weather! 🙂

We’ve ordered great weather for your time at the villa, but whoever is actually in charge of delivering it doesn’t always listen to us, unfortunately!

The point: Don’t blame us for the weather!

I know that’s a ridiculous thing to say… but truthfully, some of our worst online reviews, ones that literally cost us tens of thousands of dollars in bookings, came from people upset about the weather during their stay.

If you experience bad weather during your stay, trust me… It’s Orlando! It will be really nice pretty soon! If that’s after your departure however, well… next time, book a longer stay! 😁
