Here to explore the Epcot (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) theme park, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios? Looking for something a little more low-key than Disney’s full-on all-inclusive resorts? Maybe you’re here to check out the world-class golf courses and hang-gliding over Wallaby Ranch; or fishing and hiking through the Hilochee Wildlife Management Area. Whatever you want, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to booking somewhere to lay your head. Here we check out some of the best vacation apartments and rentals in and around Davenport, Florida – all of them bookable via Culture Trip.

1. Villas at Regal Palms, for an action-packed getaway

This exclusive gated townhome community is part of the Regal Palms Resort, a poolside paradise right off Highway 27. Choose from a three- or four-bed suite – all come with wraparound balconies, expansive living areas and open-concept kitchens. Best of all, you’ll have access to the resort’s numerous amenities, including the pool complex (with its groovy Tiki bar), arcade, spa and fitness center. On site, the bar and grill dishes out pub grub including Bavarian pretzels, mac ‘n’ cheese bites and a Cajun chicken-Philly cheesesteak-crossover. You won’t go hungry.

2. Loyalty Vacation Homes, for stylish home living

No matter how big (or small) your group is, you should find a space for your party among these stylish vacation homes. The largest has seven bedrooms – some featuring popular Disney characters – and comes with treats including a heated pool, hot tub and splash pad. There’s even a baby pool in the form of a pair of Mickey Mouse ears. Want to bring your dog? A number of the properties are also pet-friendly, and concierge services can help with the likes of equipment rental, guided tours, tee times and, of course, tickets to the parks nearby.

3. Sandy Ridge Pool Home, for classic Floridian charm

A short drive from the Disney parks, this four-bed holiday home is a welcoming spot indeed. A bright-yellow two-story affair, surrounded by palms and blessed with a covered pool and patio out back, everything about this place is typical Florida. Rooms are snug, with queen and twin options, and living options spread out from the dining area to the front entryway. No need to pack towels – there’s a stack waiting for you in the laundry room – although you can wash and dry your own before checking out. On which note, you’re just over half an hour’s drive from Orlando International Airport (MCO).

4. Westridge Pool Home, for pastel homes in a polished spot

Houses in good-enough-to-eat tones of candyfloss-pink, baby-blue and olive-green dot this residential neighborhood, conveniently located off Highway 27. The four-bedroom home in question, of course, is pink, with rest-inducing pastel-colored florals featured throughout the interior. The kids will also want the room themed around the 2006 animated Pixar movie Cars – Lightning McQueen bedspread included. The covered pool and patio area both offer ample seating, so you can curl up with a book or all lounge about together, taking the occasional plunge.

5. Orlando Breeze Resort, for endless amenities

Rooms and suites are noticeably spacious at the Orlando Breeze Resort, a Holiday Inn property. The 1000-plus-sq ft accommodations can sleep between six and 10 guests, and come with full kitchens, in-unit washers and dryers and private patios. Head out and explore the arcade and mini-golf course as well as the basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, next to the outdoor pools. The hotel cafe dishes up simple salads, pizza and sandwiches, but if you’re looking to get creative, try your hand at something sizzling on the grill around the back.

6. Modern 3 bed condo in Bahama Bay resort - Villa #493, for family-friendly condos

Book a stay at the Bahama Bay resort and you’re a handy 15-minute drive from the closest park entrance. This three-bed condo comfortably sleeps up to seven, with queen beds and a bunk bed room. Bright blues add colorful accents through the property, and the in-unit washer and dryer, whirlpool tub and dry bar off the kitchen are proper pluses. You’ll have access to the resort’s pools, tennis courts and playground – and when hunger pangs hit, head to the resort restaurant, Tradewinds, for Cuban-inspired beef empanadas with sofrito rice and beans, or mussel linguine served in white-wine sauce.

7. Solterra Resort, for huge properties in a gated neighborhood

Tennis courts, pools and a lazy river stretch out over four acres of this residential and vacation-rental community less than 20 minutes from the Disney parks. It’s a gated neighborhood, and the properties are enormous, averaging five to six bedrooms, with open-concept kitchens, indoor and outdoor living areas and covered pools. The Solterra’s cafe specializes in flatbreads and sandwiches, but a number of restaurants and grocery stores are nearby as well – a great incentive to head out and explore.

8. Davenport Area Pool Homes by SVV, for easy access to mouthwatering cuisine

Turn down the palm-lined street in a residential neighborhood off Highway 27 and you’ll end up at one of these holiday homes – paradise found, complete with a covered pool. Choose from three-, four- or five-bedroom properties – whichever you pick will be homey, with themed bathrooms, spacious kitchen bars and jetted tubs. Chain restaurants and grocery stores line the nearby strip but don’t miss Just Cubans, the food truck across the street, and its pan de lechón (roast-pork sandwich) or sandwich de ropa vieja (made from shredded beef stewed with peppers, vegetables and olives). They’re juicy – and just heavenly.
