Why rent an Orlando, Florida south-facing pool home/villa?

Have you ever wondered why the pool facing is an important factor while renting an Orlando Florida vacation home?

South Facing Pool

South facing pools take advantage of those golden rays from sunrise to sunset which is why many vacationers prefer and ask for a "South-Facing Pool". Have you ever wondered why a south-facing pool makes the perfect choice? We tried to explain below based on the sun's trajectory in various seasons of the year.

  • In the summer months Sun rises in the northeast and moves west and is directly over the head. So, all pools get the sunlight. You will get the majority of sun in the morning with an East facing pool, while the afternoon sun will hit a west-facing pool. A pool facing south in summer will have full sun all day long.
  • In the winter months, Sun rises southeast and remains low in the southern sky. A south-facing pool gets the sunlight the longest in comparison to other types of pools in winter months.
  • In the spring and fall months, Sun rises exactly on the east and sets exactly on the west. The shadow of the house does not fall on the pool during these seasons.
  • Irrespective of the time of the year a south-facing pool gets nice sunshine all day long and the lanai is shaded to cool you off.

West Facing Pool

West facing pools do not get any sunshine until after noon. They do get sunlight from noon to sunset. The only disadvantage they have is that the lanai area does not get the shade to allow you to cool-off.

East Facing Pool

East facing pools start with nice sunshine in the morning. By mid-day, most of the pool deck starts to get the shadow of the home. As the sun travels further and further west, the entire pool deck and pool area will be darkened by the shadow of the home.

North Facing Pool

North facing pool decks do not get much sun throughout the day. On two-storey villas, this is even worse as you cannot sun bathe and might have to go up to the drive-way or the side of the house to get some tanning.

Great rental - Tropical Magic
Deborah Novak of Nottingham, MD, Mar 13, 2017
My family has rented homes at Emerald Island Resort for the past 3 years. This is by far the best villa. It was very clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. There were a few minor issues that were quickly taken care of. The privacy afforded by the vegetation outside of the pool was very nice. Located close to Disney and convenient to everything. I would definitely rent this home again.
.....clean, comfortable and more than convenient. - Mickey's Magic

We are Disney World veterans who decided to stay off property for our recent trip. We stayed at Mickey's Magic and were very pleased with the accommodations. It was clean, comfortable and more than convenient...less than 10 minutes from leaving the property to parking at most Disney properties. We would recommend anyone looking for a place in Orlando to consider Mickey's Magic.
