Walt Disney World Area Villa Communities

When renting a Florida villa, these will be located in a 'Community' or a sub-division. Villa communities will be part-rental part-residential, with them ranging in size from smaller niche communities, to purpose built complexes with a clubhouse and some which border golf courses. As each villa is different, each community will offer something different. Whether it is the location, the facilities, the route to the parks or the shops and restaurants which are nearby.

Esprit is a smaller, established community of around 260 homes located at the north end of highway US27 and alongside the 9-hole Polo Park East golf course. The community also borders Old Lake Davenport, which is stocked and can be fished with a local license. This and the local wildlife add to the peacefulness when staying at Esprit.

If fishing is a little too quiet and golf is your preferred past-time, then this is an ideal location. With the smaller, less busy course, you can play a quick round and still be back in time for the parks or a relaxing day in the sun. There are also many other world-class golf courses in the local area. For the more energetic visitors, Esprit offers its guests the use of tennis courts, a basketball court and a communal pool.

For those on vacation, there is a clubhouse attached to the golf course which is open to the public for drinks and snacks.
