    Unless you are planning on early morning or late night, walking to the shops in Summer is not normally a good idea.

    Most communities do not have shops on them, the best you will get is a few that have some near the entrance. Even then you would need to get a home at the entry to have any real chance of do this in the summer heat.

    There are no villas anywhere near Universal so this will always be at least a 15 minute drive and usually more. If you are buying food in the summer then you will probably want to get it home as soon as possible so a car with A/C is the best bet.

    Regards

    P.S. Should have said check the car hire here for young driver quotes you may be surprised.

    Thank you for your reply. Which area would you advise for us to rent a villa?

    My reply to anyone who has every asked this question has always been the same. You are not staying in an area you are staying in a villa. The most important thing to choose is where you want to spend your 'at home' time. Generally most areas are within 3 to 4 miles of a major supermarket for all your normal needs.

    As I said earlier you are always going to have a drive to any of the major parks or shopping malls so your overall location may change this by an extra 10 minutes for some of them.

    The one thing you do need is availability and as this is the school summer holidays many place book up fast.

    You need to send out your enquiries and make a note if you can be flexible with the start/ finish dates. Once you get replies from those that are still available you can pick the one that you like the most.

    As all the homes are privately owned they are all different, each owner in their reply will highlight the features of their home and then all you have to do is pick one.
