Warm, sunny weather and theme parks are just a couple of reasons why Orlando is such an appealing family vacation destination. Still, when you’re staying at Disney resorts the price tag can get pretty high. For that reason, we found some alternatives that offer more space than a hotel room, plus plenty of amenities that meet the needs (and wants) of families. Read on for our list of the very best kid-friendly Airbnbs in Orlando and start booking while the price is right.

13 Truly Exceptional Airbnbs in Florida for the Ultimate Staycation

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Price: $154/night
  • Why We Recommend It: game room, backyard, private pool, convenient location

This spacious three bedroom retreat has a generously sized backyard and pool, both fully fenced for maximum privacy. There’s also a large game room complete with an air hockey table, a foosball table, and a wide selection of toys and board games. (“My kids were OBSESSED with the game room,” writes one reviewer.) Plus, the well-appointed space features a master bedroom with a king bed, a second bedroom with two bunk beds and a sleek dining and living room with ample space for those traveling with a bigger brood. Oh, and the location is just two minutes away from Walmart (in case you forgot to pack something) and a stone’s throw away from Disney, too.

  • Sleeps: 16+
  • Price: $566/night
  • Why We Recommend It: themed rooms, resort amenities, good for large groups

The Magical Muggle Mansion, a palatial home with resort amenities, is paradise for Harry Potter fans. Not a room on the property strays from the wizarding theme and the resulting decor is truly enchanting. (Seriously, it’s like you’re actually stepping into the book.) The interior design is reason enough to stay here, but there’s also a home movie theater and private pool, as well as shared access to the resort’s waterpark, arcade room, mini golf course and more. In other words, this place nails the design and delivers the entertainment so well that you might not even need to go to Universal Studios for an immersive Harry Potter experience, though if you choose to, you’ll be very close.

  • Sleeps: 5
  • Price: $156/night
  • Why We Recommend It: historic, central location, baby gear

This historic and oh-so charming 1920s bungalow is located in the ColonialTown North District of Orlando—a vibrant and blessedly walkable part of the city that’s replete with restaurants, cafes and bars. The interior of the property is roomy and there’s a generously sized front porch (complete with porch swing) for relaxing and a large living room with a wood burning fireplace, so it’s well-suited to unwinding after a long day at one of the nearby amusement parks. Best of all, there’s a travel crib, high chair and children’s dinnerware available for guests who are traveling with small children, which means you might be able to travel light for a change.

  • Sleeps: 3+
  • Price: $196/night
  • Why We Recommend It: lake views, peaceful setting, pool access, baby gear

Here, a private and exceedingly peaceful oasis perched right on the lake—a location that boasts gorgeous views, a serene setting and close proximity to the action of the city and, of course, the parks. Guests also have access to the pool, hot tub and boat for water activities on the lake, and the property is fully stocked with family-friendly amenities, like a travel crib, children’s dinnerware and, wait for it, babysitter recommendations. Bonus: There’s also a wide selection of board games in the house so you can enjoy a low-key night without your kids getting restless.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Price: $410/night
  • Why We Recommend It: lake views, central location, private pool, backyard, good for large groups

If you’re looking for something a little bigger, this palatial lakefront property should fit the bill. Jet skis and other equipment are available so guests can make the most of the lake access, plus a private (fully enclosed) lap pool and a sprawling yard where kids can romp around as well. The interior has a massive living room with tons of empty floor space for kids to run around, too, and the plush, oversized bedrooms have room darkening shades so you don’t have to worry about being woken up at the crack of dawn. Better still, this prime piece of real estate is located just two minutes away from Universal Studios, so you can easily take a midday break from the theme park experience when the kids are tuckered out.

  • Sleeps: 3
  • Price: $180/night
  • Why We Recommend It: private pool, backyard, downtown location

The size of this centrally located home might be modest, but the amenities are many and the tropical vibes make for a truly relaxing stay.

The sun-drenched interior is light, airy and beautifully decorated—a lovely place to unwind that boasts all the comforts of home. Plus, the property is located in the heart of downtown and just two blocks away from Lake Eola so families won’t be wanting for off-site dining and entertainment options.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Price: $130/night
  • Why We Recommend It: lake views, city views, central location, resort amenities

This lakefront condominium complex is what kids’ dreams are made of—namely because it's just one mile away from Disney, Universal, Sea World and every other major attraction in Orlando and located within walking distance from a host of cafes, restaurants and shops. Plus, with four bedrooms and two full baths, this rental boasts more than enough space for a comfortable family stay and the property also features a range of resort amenities (pool, tiki hut, etc.) and a private balcony where guests can enjoy views of the city skyline and lake. In other words, this Airbnb is akin to a penthouse suite at a luxury hotel and it certainly checks all the boxes.

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Price: $215/night
  • Why We Recommend It: themed rooms, backyard, private pool, resort amenities

This bright and beautiful home in Kissimmee features an airy open floor plan, adorable Mickey Mouse-themed kids bedrooms—a nod to its close proximity to Disney and Universal—and an elegant master suite. There’s also a fenced backyard, private pool and patio with barbeque, as well as access to a range of resort amenities including a fitness center and a second (shared) pool. And visitors with infants or toddlers in tow will be pleased to know the pad is equipped with a regular crib, travel crib and dinnerware, too.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Price: $162/night
  • Why We Recommend It: beautiful property, private pool, game room, central location, baby gear

Enjoy the tropical and well-groomed landscape of the palm tree-lined yard and outdoor swimming pool at this single story, family-friendly home— yet another appealing choice in Kissimmee that’s in close proximity to the parks. When you’re ready to head indoors, be sure to spend some time in the game room playing a few rounds of pool, foosball and more. The rest of the newly renovated interior is nothing to shake a stick at either. The kitchen has modern appliances, granite countertops and a charming breakfast nook; the bedrooms and common areas are large, comfortable and luxuriously furnished. Plus, families will be delighted by the baby gear available, including a travel crib, high chair and stroller (because you know you’re going to need one at Disney and no one wants to schlep that thing through the airport).

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Price: $110/night
  • Why We Recommend It: lake views, central location, toys and games

This spectacular home offers guests lake views, pool use and easy access close to theme parks, water sports, golf and tennis courts and top-notch dining. The sunny interior is welcoming with an upscale homey feel and enough square footage to comfortably accommodate families with two or more kids. The family-friendly appeal doesn’t end there, since the place is well-stocked with children’s toys, books and stuffed animals as well. (Yep, your kids can leave theirs at home.) In short, ‘My Happy Place’ is exactly that—a warm and well-appointed rental and a perfect homebase for families hoping to explore all that Orlando has to offer.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Price: $193/night
  • Why We Recommend It: lake views, resort amenities, rustic vibes, toys and games

If you’re looking for a property with its own distinct character, check out this rental for a cabin-meets-resort experience. At first glance of the exterior you might think “summer camp vibes” but don’t be fooled—the accommodations are quite luxurious. For starters, there’s a gorgeous inground pool, multiple patios, including one perched right above the lake, and a stone pathway leading to said lake that’s shaded with lush, tropical foliage. Head indoors and you’ll be treated to a rustic interior with exposed wood beams, cozy furnishings and plenty of space to spread out. Shared amenities can also be accessed for a small fee and include a sauna, spa, gym with every piece of fitness equipment under the sun, a massive game room and more.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Price: $90/night
  • Why We Recommend It: rural vibes, peaceful setting, large outdoor space, toys and games

If you’re looking for a farm stay experience that’s beautiful, tranquil and removed from the urban hubbub, Sweet Heat Farms is for you. While the property is only a 45-minute drive to the theme parks and 20 minutes from the airport, it feels like a whole different world. The apartment is stocked with toys and games, and the lush, sprawling grounds are perfectly quiet except for the occasional sounds from other guests (think: chickens and ducks). Plus, rave reviews report that the hosts are lovely and the overall experience is one of the best you can find. (“Great location, great apartment, great host! Hands down the best airbnb experience I have ever had!” writes one reviewer.) Best of all, there’s enough outdoor space for kids to explore and burn off energy without disturbing any neighbors. The only catch is that you’ll have to share a room with them—the studio set-up, though very spacious, means that the king bed is in the same room as the two single beds—so the only time you won’t have a ton of privacy is at night.

Marvel fans will be delighted to stay at this massive ten bedroom mansion. Needless to say,  the comic book-turned-movie franchise dominates the interior design of several of the bedrooms, but there’s also a room that will make Disney’s Frozen fans swoon and several “grown up” rooms and common areas that are elegantly decorated and free of cartoon character murals. In fact, the entire (enormous) interior space is absolutely stunning and strikes a perfect balance between sophisticated five star accommodations and themed kid-appeal. There’s also a massive game room complete with two sets of bunk beds (psst: they’ll never sleep), outdoor pool, movie theater and numerous life size games to entertain guests of all ages. In other words, this waterfront property is a veritable amusement park unto itself—and if that’s not good enough for your brood, you should know that it’s basically located in the backyard of the real ones.
