Once upon a time (long, long ago), while
living in the UK, we decided we would make our dream holiday (vacation) come
true by taking our two young boys to Disney. We booked our flights and decided
to do what they called a "fly-drive' so we would just travel around and stay in
hotels on the way. This is how it went.
We would arrive late in the day, I would wait in line at the front desk to
check in and pick up my room keys, while everyone else impatiently waited in the
car and then pay an arm and a leg for a tiny room.
Then we would park in a crowded parking lot, hike all the way up to our hotel
room, carrying all of our heavy luggage up flights of stairs, with two very
My husband and I had no privacy in this little room and the kids had nowhere
to expend all of their energy. Two very excited boys!!!! We would spend all
evening asking them to be quiet, as they were giggling and fighting.
The beds were uncomfortable, lumpy mattresses, the bathrooms were always
small, four of us sharing ONE bathroom, and there was only 1 small TV that had a
few fuzzy channels.
Then the kids would wake up the next day and want to swim. So, we all had to
get everything together, hike down to the pool where it was a struggle to find
pool chairs together for everyone to sit on. Then you realize you forgot your
sunglasses, and it was long trek back to the room for someone.
We would be sharing the pool with lots of noisy families, my kids being some
of the noisiest, so we would have to keep telling them to be quiet. Then they
would have to get out of the pool once it closed, sometimes fairly early.
Next day was a Disney park, very long day. We would get back to the motel and
we would try to go to sleep, but we would be interrupted by maids, doors
slamming, kids in the next room screaming and cars honking below or police
sirens on the busy road we were on.
When it was time to eat, we would search for our car in the parking lot,
drive to a busy restaurant, and pay for an overpriced meal, multiple times a
day! My two boys were always hungry. We could keep chips in the hotel room, but
not many rooms had a refrigerator, so we could not keep food or drink that
needed cooling. If there was a fridge it would be the smallest one ever. We
would waste so much money and time going to the restaurants three times a
We loved Florida and the theme parks so much, we would travel here twice a
year, but still did not learn our lesson.
We brought family and friends with us a few times, but we would be split
apart, into different rooms on separate floors. We spent more time trying to
find each other and going from room to room than actually spending time
Then one day on a trip in 1996, we found a Vacation Home, and realized that
we didn’t have to vacation like this anymore! That vacations don’t have to be
over priced, crowded and inconvenient. What a Difference!
We were so impressed that we bought a vacation home ourself. From this grew
Loyalty Vacation Homes. We started renting and managing homes in 1999, as one of
the first companies here in Kissimmee (and we are still in business to this
I wanted to offer something different, innovative and unique,
I named the vacation home I rented "Cinderella's Castle." This was the first
time that a vacation house had a name. And I offered "actual homes" to guests.
Every other company at that time did not name their homes and did not let you
choose the home you would stay in. You would just be in a generic 4 bedroom
home. Their web sites did not show you the homes you could choose from, they
just showed a standard type.
We ensured our homes were very close to Disney so that guests could
experience the parks, come back to their homes for a swim on a hot day, or have
lunch by their pool. And, still have plenty of time to go back after lunch to
enjoy the rest of the day or fireworks, without driving far.
Then we turned unused garage space into Game rooms or Cinema rooms, when
nobody else in 1999 offered game rooms. In fact a lot of my owners questioned
why we should do that. Guests Love it.
We were and always have been different.
Now..... Everyone offers game rooms: Everyone lets you choose a particular
home and nearly Everyone names their homes.
But we were the first, and we stay ahead of the crowd by offering you the
best we can.
So, don’t settle for a generic vacation home, with an inexperienced Vacation
Stay with the Company you can trust to make your special Story. We chose our
name very carefully...........
“You and your family are one of a kind, so your
vacation home should be too!”
Families, just like yours, have chosen Loyalty Vacation Homes many times over
the years to make memories that last a lifetime.
We make sure each vacation is a "Happily Ever After" one.
