Last year was our first ever villa stay and we loved it. There is a part of me that now thinks staying on-site just got less likely due of how much we liked the villa.
This year we have toyed with San Diego (now deemed too expensive), Orlando with a trip to NYC in the middle (to stressful for me and not very interesting for the two youngest). I'm now wondering if it's possible to combine villa with a night or two on-site mid holiday. Has anyone done this? Did it work well? I would leave the majority of our stuff at the villa and just take overnight bags for everyone whilst on-site but would our belongings be ok left at the villa? Would I need to let any management company know what our intentions were before we booked the villa? Could they refuse or booking if they didn't like the idea of us leaving the property unattended for two or three days?
I like the idea of doing the whole on-site thing mid holiday so that we don't have to re-pack and lug our luggage to two different places but the cost of paying for two sets of accommodation might be restrictive in which case we would consider tagging the on-site stay at the end and hiring a villa for a shorter time.
Anyone have any thoughts, suggestions or experience of the waffle I've typed above?
