Hi, I Just wanted to know if any Tuggers have stayed at the Summer Bay Villas on 192 Kissimmee/Clermont ? Have Any suggestions as far as what is the Best location or Unit to request? Do all the 2 Bedroom Villas have Washers & Dryers? Any information is appreciated. Thanks, and Stay Safe.

I am so glad you started this thread. I have never stayed here but I have it on my bucket list to try at least once. I am a member of RCI and I notice there are 2 listings for Summer Bay. One for The Villas at Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria Resorts(Silver Crown). Then there is Summer Bay Orlando by Exploria Resorts(Gold Crown). They are located in the exact same place, so I really want to know what the difference is. Is one a newer section? I am very curious about anyone who stayed there too so I am tuning in to keep an eye out for comments. I really am considering it for one of my weeks in August 2021.

If you are trading via RCI, have you been searching the DVC Disney Resorts? I was thinking you could at least get a unit in Saratoga Springs.

I love Summer Bay! The Houses of Summer Bay are my all-time favourites, and we have done over 100 exchanges! Check to make sure that The Villas have balconies. seem to remember that they do not. I don't know if there are any recent reviews here on TUG, that you could check.

The houses are much better than the villas. You have a house with it’s own swimming pool. My sister rented both out there thru RCI. We enjoyed the house a lot.

Thanks for the info about the balconies. I have to keep that in mind. Sitting out on a balcony at night is one of the highlights of my vacation. Also sitting out on the balcony as the sun comes up is another enjoyment. So a balcony is a necessity. I would not enjoy my vacation without one.

I will have to keep this in mind too. The outside patio by the pool will be very relaxing by day and by night. DH isn't a fan of vacation homes. He says it feels too disconnected from everyone. We stayed in a vacation home before and he muddled thru it, but it was obvious he missed being in close proximity with other guests. I think a house would be better if our family was larger. So if more extended family join us, he may be ok with it. We will see.....
