Villas and Apartments: Villa and apartment holidays can offer great opportunities for the disabled traveller.  Over the 20 years or so accessible accommodation has become more mainstream but finding a place to stay that will fulfil all your needs has always been difficult.  That is why a large number of disabled people have had their own private villas or apartments built to very high standards.  These are then often available to rent by other people throughout the year.  Their are a lot of apartments around the big USA attractions like Disney etc. and many more in the worlds top holiday hotspots.  Where do I find them? Is what you are probably asking right now.  Well that depends on where you live.  Get hold of the publications issued about your disability or general disability papers / magazines and you will see lots of villas and apartments advertised there.  Invariably these properties are purpose built for the disabled traveller.  You might have to book up to a year in advance if it's a popular place.  If you have a high level spinal injury and you know the villa you are going to is owned by someone with a similar disability you'll also know that the rooms and any equipment there will be ok for you too.  A lot of this type of holiday accommodation is designed by the disabled owners before it is built.  So it's not uncommon to find air conditioning, completely level single floor accommodation and pools with an electric pool hoist too.  A lot of the villa owners have their own villa websites where you can see good pictures of the villa, its rooms and surroundings.  They will make using their property as easy as possible too.  They can tell you the best flights and normally arrange accessible transport to and from the airport for you as well.
