What Are The Advantages Of Staying In A Vacation Home Versus A Hotel?
Vacation homes (such as those offered by Balmoral Resort) provide you and your family the privacy and distancing that is currently being recommended by public health officials.

Balmoral vacation homes allow concerned travelers to relax confidently in the comfort and privacy of their own discrete space while still enjoying the warm sunshine that only Central Florida can provide.
How Are We Safeguarding Our Guests?
The safety and security of our guests and team members is and has always been our highest priority. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene throughout the entire resort. In response to COVID-19 concerns, we have taken additional measures developed in consultation with global and local public health authorities (including officials at WHO and the CDC) to ensure that our sanitization protocols are even more rigorous.
Here’s what we’re doing to keep you safe:
- Increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, door handles, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the regular use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
- For each home clean, using hospital-grade disinfectant cleaners we:
- Focus on frequently touched surfaces like appliance handles, light switches, doorknobs, remote controls, faucet handles, A/C control panel, alarm clocks, and others.
- Clean stair banisters, furniture, countertops, end tables, and other surfaces.
- Wash all linens at the highest heat setting recommended by the manufacturer. That includes bed sheets, hand and bath towels, kitchen towels, and blankets.
- Disinfect the vacuum cleaner, along with other cleaning appliances like the dishwasher and washing machine.
Are Resort Amenities Being Affected?
Balmoral Resort continues to operate most amenities as usual with extra sanitation processes in place. Currently, the operation of our range of amenities meets all state and local guidelines and restrictions. As conditions change, we will update our procedures as necessary. Our Guest Services team will also be operating with limited hours at our clubhouse.
During your visit to Balmoral Resort, you can continue to expect:
- A private, secure home space you can enjoy with your family
- Use of a private pool
- A fully-equipped kitchen for in-home meal preparation
