The home is on the newest lane in Paradise Palms Resort, a gated community dedicated to vacation homes/short-term rental properties. Banana Palm is less busy and more quiet than other resort areas and it has special access to the clubhouse area through The Boardwalk. It isn't next to the clubhouse, but we found that it was a shorter walk to the clubhouse than some homes within the main resort area.
This home was formerly owned by the author of Vacation Rental Management 411, the textbook used in colleges courses about vacation home management. The Property Manager is a member of the Florida VRMA, a leading organization promoting quality short-term rental management. We are not simply someone who thought they could list a home on a technology platform and not work at making it safe and comfortable for our guests. We strive to follow industry best practices in all that we do.
The home is also stocked with amenities that we use during our stay and we make these extra features and amenities available to our guest use. We also have tips and we are happy to share these tips with our guests.
We care about our guests enjoying a quality stay in our vacation home.
Why Kids Love It
The FROZEN and AVENGER rooms allow kids of all ages to enjoy a bit of fantasy without being overwhelmed by the theme rooms. It's subtle enough to allow for a good night's sleep. There's a TV with Cable in each bedroom, and the home has games, DVDs, books, and a private splash pool. The private pool allows for a cool, relaxing dip in the privacy and convenience of the screen-in back porch. And being so close to Disney World and roads leading to Universal Studios and LegoLand make getting to the parks more convenient.
For families with young children, we have two pack-n-plays, several strollers, a high chair, stair gate, and we usually have some pool and beach toys for our guest's convenience and discretionary use. The home is designed for a family and even an extended family to enjoy a magical stay in the Orlando area.

Attractions Within Walking Distance
The Paradise Palms Resort has a variety of amenities available to our guests within a short walk (or, if you like, a short drive) from our vacation home. The Boardwalk is one of our grandson's favorite adventures as they walk to the clubhouse. It's like a Florida Everglades Adventure! In the main area of the resort, there is a clubhouse with game rooms, a theater, store, fitness center, and a zero-entry pool with spas, a splash pad, slide and plenty of deck chairs. There is a playground and a variety of sports courts, too. The concierge can help guest book excursions and rides to parks (but we recommend that guests have a car when they visit the Orlando area. It allows for easier access to multiple attractions). The location of the home was one of the main reasons we selected it. It's very convenient.
Favorite Places To Eat
There are a variety of great fast food and sit-down dining options within a few minutes drive of the home. We love Texas Roadhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse, Bahama Breeze, and Culvers. And there are many more delicious and convenient choices. There are also PUBLIX, Walmart, and convenience/gas station stores near the home. Some have pick-up service, if you want to order items in advance for later pick up.
We have a website and emails with special tips for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the host:
Everything was a described. Lots of little extra items left by previous tenants and the owner to help. House was well appointed and perfect for our needs. Comfortable beds plenty of linens. We had a great time.
The property was as described online. My family and I enjoyed the themed home and the convenience of the wade pool out back. My 3 yr old granddaughter was able to “practice” her swimming without worrying about getting in any one else’s way. The only thing I could gripe about is the internet connection - it was very spotty. Of course it was the teenagers who brought it to my attention. Overall great vacation in a great location!
You definitely get what is shown! My kids (ages 34 and 31) said this was the best place we’ve stayed yet! The grandchildren loved the themed bedrooms. I asked my six year old granddaughter what her favorite thing was about vacation. She said having a Frozen bedroom
Enjoyed our stay very much. Kids loved their theme rooms.
Loved this home. There were 7 of us and we did not feel like we were living on top of each other. There are all kinds of homely touches and the owners have spared no expense to make their guests comfortable.
We had a wonderful stay at Paradise on Ice vacation home! The home was tastefully decorated and the kids absolutely loved the Frozen and Avengers rooms! All the beds were so comfortable! The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need...even spices! It was a perfect place to come relax and swim after a long day in the parks! Julie was very helpful and was very quick to answer any questions, very easy to work with! One thing worth mentioning is the section of the resort this house is connected to the main resort by walking over bridge through a wooded swampy area. No big deal to us, but because of our young children, it was easier to take the very quick drive to the clubhouse with all our stuff and the kids. Thank you for a great vacation...we would definitely rebook here and hope to be back again soon!!!
Frequently Asked Questions
How close is Paradise on Ice to Disney World?
Answers regarding distance can be different depending upon how the host is mapping it. Our home is within 5 miles of all Disney World Attractions. Depending upon the part we are visiting, the time of day/traffic, and the route we use, we may enter the parking lot within a 5-minute drive or it could be a half hour drive. We usually plan for 15 minutes. It's good to note that Disney World spans many acres of land and when you park in a Disney lot, you still may need to take additional transportation to get into the park (we call it the first ride of the day). It's good to allow ample time before your day begins so you can enjoy it with less stress. It can be a magical experience.
Do you have additional tips for your guests?
Yes! There is so much to do in Disney World and Universal Studios so knowing these tips can enhance your experience.
Why do you say that your house is within Paradise Palms Resort? Do you charge additional fees for the resort?
We want to make it easy for our guests to enjoy their stay, so we selected a home within a luxury resort that was designed for vacation homes. There are many amenities that are available to our guests free of charge (and a few that the resort can arrange through the concierge desk). Some vacation home owners at this and other resorts charge additional fees for accessing resort amenities or for use of strollers and other amenities. We try to include all essential fees, like these fees, into the reservation price.
