vacation it’s a rare treat to splash about in the toasty warm waters of an outdoor swimming pool...Outdoor
pools are best enjoyed in the sunshine, and to that end, there can be no better place to lie back in
crystal clear waters, staring at the dappled silhouette of a swaying palm tree and let your cares float away,
than in everyone’s favourite holiday destination, Florida...And whilst not every hotel has it’s own
pool, if to stay in the now increasingly popular choice of a private luxury villa, such as those advertised
you choose
on the Florida Vacation Rentals Web Site Orlando Villas, you will most definitely be spoilt with not only
stunning accommodation but your own private pool too...However, as with all things watery, common sense must
always be applied...For some reason folks on vacation, who in their ordinary everyday lives might be the most
sensible people on the planet, often forget to pack their common sense along with their sunscreen and flip

water wings and inflatable rings are extremely popular with children, but it should always be remembered that
these are not life saving devices. They are merely floating toys. Just because your child is wearing water
wings, does not mean that it is safe to leave them to play in or by the pool...Rough play and running on
the deck is also a big “No No”, due to the obvious dangers of slipping and diving is also discouraged,
as pools only have a maximum depth of 6 foot...To sum up, if treated with respect, and common sense is
