Good morning all! We have a large group of 32 people. 23 Adults and 9 kids. We are looking for 2 homes that are side by side(they do not need to be owned by the same person) at least 7 bedrooms with 5 queen/king beds in each. I have sent out inquires for vrbo.com and homeaway.com and orlando4villas. I think it's the 5 queen/king beds that's throwing us off. Any ideas?? :confused3

I might pass the question along to vacationcentralflorida to see if any of their windsor hills property work. I know they said they have some townhouses/condo's close together.

I have been mulling over the original post. There is a specific requirement which is 2 homes side by side each with 5 king/queen beds. I only recall seeing one home advertising 5 king/queen beds (not counting sleeper sofas). (Sorry OP, I can't remember which home that was). More common is 4 queen/king beds.

It may be that deciding what is most important to your family group is the way to go.

Some thoughts that I had were...

Sleeper sofa. I don't recommend using sleeper sofas unless you really have to -they are not the best option for privacy and certainly not as comfortable as a mattress, but they are an option. Some homes do have queen sleeper sofas available in addition to 4 queen/king beds. Personally I would rather sleep on a twin than a sleeper sofa, but everyone is different.

If more king/queen beds is important, perhaps it is worth looking at 3 homes rather than 2. Obviously that will cost more, but it is an option.

Find 2 side by side homes which are as close to your needs as you can get and then make the most of the bedding arrangements that are available. (If you do move twin beds together at a home, remember to put them back as they were originally set up). There is something that you can buy that allows you to put to twin beds together and have them act like a king. You could purchase a couple of these to take with you (it would be cheaper than renting an additional home).

Some homes have twin over full bunks - perhaps a full bed would suffice instead of a queen/king.

Hope that helps,

We stayed in this 7br home in Emerald Island last year and it had 5 king/queen rooms and 2 twin but I don't know who owns the house next to it. Kay may know. This one is by the Enclave Sign on the corner of Emerald Island Blvd and La Isla. http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p253707

We are considering 2 side by side homes in Emerald Island for our reunion next year. I googled side by side orlando vacation rentals and came up with quite a few.

Hope this helps.
