The Story Behind Florida Premier Rentals (FPR)
It’s not often we blow our own trumpet, but we were more than a little surprised when VRBO decided to feature Florida Premier Rentals in their Women’s Day splash in March. We were honored to be chosen to represent businesses run by women, bringing the feminine touch to an often male-dominated business sector.
So let me tell you my story so far, so you understand that when you do business with FPR, you are dealing with a family business. We do what we do because we care and want to make a difference.
My name is Karen Collinson and I started my villa rental business many years ago almost by accident. It now employs myself, my daughters and a hand-picked team (all women BTW!) who share the same work ethics as we do. Our company motto is “Your Space, Your Time, Our Know-How” and we never forget we are just part of a bigger team that brings about amazing and unforgettable vacations in Orlando.
As a Mom, I always took my girls on vacation. However, my dream was to create a vacation rental home that families would really love to stay in. I wanted to create something extra special, with a more contemporary European ambience and every convenience that guests could wish for, and that’s what I did. My first bespoke property in Orlando was quickly overwhelmed with booking requests and soon friends began asking if I could re-style their vacation homes and manage them. This confirmed what I had always thought people were looking for. From these humble beginnings, suddenly we were in business!
Once we partnered with other villa rental companies and international booking platforms such as VRBO and HomeAway, we grew enormously. I’m proud to say that in 2020 FPR manages over 240 individually owned properties, all tastefully decorated and equipped to my own high standards. Themed bedrooms, toy boxes for youngsters, game rooms, safety gates and pools all give our properties that extra WOW factor. Of course, choosing the right location is vital. Our properties are all close to Disney on modern communities that offer fantastic amenities such as onsite pools, water parks, golf courses, on-site dining and more.
We constantly listen to feedback, respond to comments and continue to adapt and evolve. We tailor our vacation homes to what discerning travelers are looking for – it’s no use having a beautiful property if it’s in the wrong place or doesn’t meet guests’ needs.
So now, when you book a villa vacation rental from us I hope you will feel you are doing business with someone you know personally and can trust. For our part, we promise to provide the best possible villa booking experience and will continue to ensure that our vacation homes in Orlando will exceed your expectations.
