Recent South Florida vacation rental reviews

Really was the perfect house for us. Clean and up to date with a beautiful view of the water. Pool can be heated for a daily fee which made relaxing and swimming at home..a great option when beach weary or just refreshing after a day of fun . We thoroughly enjoyed the gorgeous Sombrero Beach Beach along with the natural beauty of Curry Hammock State Park. Sombrero beach is dog friendly as well as the small shallow, clear waters of Veterans beach about 10 minutes South on Overseas highway. The best places to eat in Marathon were very close and some walkable -Lazy Days South, Porkys... and others a few minute drive - Burdines, Castaways, Island Grill and the fabulous Hideaway Cafe on top of the Rainbow Bend Inn. And right next door is Starbucks. The house had excellent air conditioning, water pressure and appliances dishes pots and pans. Washer and dryer large capacity and worked very well. The yard is fenced in so great for my tiny dog but just kept an eye on pool and ocean in case she decided to jump in. Service was great when I called about pool heat or initial questions on how to use locks. Three thumbs up and 5 stars.

This place was incredible in every way! Can’t wait to come back! Extremely private, amazing yard, tucked back off road. House is super clean, private bedrooms on every corner of house. Also rented a boat to park on the dock. Caught all kinds of fish just a 5 minute boat ride to first tunnel! Nicest place we’ve ever stayed!! Thank you!!

This was our 3rd trip to the keys. 2nd in Key Colony Beach. By far this was the best home we have rented. We were here for 3 weeks. Mid January to first week of February and the weather was awesome. It was extremely clean and updated. Best part was having a king bed in the master. Lol. This place has 3 seating/ living rooms with plenty of room. The kids can have their own back room with 55” tv. Perfect. It also has a very large kitchen galley and a smaller dining room to the side. Master is very large with a 2 person shower. All linens were new along with the pillows. The back deck was perfect having 2 small tables with 2 chairs at each. I would have loved a larger table with more chairs to eat outside as a family and a couch on the other side for lounging. Other than that it was great. The dock is big enough to host a 30’ foot. We rented a 25’ for a week and it was fantastic just walking out back to your boat. The area is wonderful. It has the Cabana beach/pool club that you can spend all day at and the area also has 2 restaurants within KCB. You are able to walk to each but could be a bit of a walk depending where you’re staying. The home had everything you needed including beach towels, hairdryer, iron, baby Gate for upstairs and even a guard rail for the bed in the kids room which came in handy for our 4 yr old granddaughter. She’s a wild sleeper and kept her from falling out. The only thing I would recommend is some steak knives. It had none. It had plenty of prep knives which need sharpening. Also more larger prep bowls. Other than that it was perfect. We will definitely rent again. The entire house was incredibly clean and comfortable Also make sure you visit sunset beach at night to watch the sunset. They make a big deal if it every night.

Beaches of South Florida

Let's be honest: the main reason people travel to Florida is for the sugar-white sand and emerald-green waters that give life to the Sunshine State's beaches. Like its northern neighbor, Pensacola, the base of the Blue Angels, South Florida is home to some of the best beaches in the world. Since this region is the only part of the continental United States that boasts a tropical climate, beachgoers benefit from plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures.

Any South Florida beach you visit will satisfy your appetite for fun in the sun, but unspoiled beach spots are, by far, the epitome of paradise perfection. Luckily, this region of Florida has plenty of these pockets. If you're in the oceanside community of Fort Myers Beach, be sure to check out Lovers Key State Park. The story goes that the park got its name because the beach was once so secluded that only lovers went to the trouble of catching a boat to admire the area's beauty. While the beach is more accessible now, it's still private and features natural vegetation and mangrove-covered waterways. Home to two bald eagle nests, the park is also a sighting place for manatees, dolphins, and marsh rabbits.

Naples, one of the wealthiest cities in the country, offers several remote beaches that are perfect for uninterrupted tanning or reading. The Clam Pass County Park provides 35 acres of salt-tolerant mangrove forests, rare coastal dunes, and Gulf of Mexico shoreline. Embark on a family adventure by exploring the smallest, shallowest pass on the coast.

Near the northern part of Naples lies the Barefoot Beach Preserve Park. One of the only undeveloped barrier islands along this stretch of coast, this beach park consists of 342 acres of gorgeous scenery. Offering a one-mile nature trail and a picnic area, the park is home to the protected gopher tortoise and some loggerhead sea turtles.

Culture and cuisine of South Florida

South Florida is as eclectic as regions come. For instance, this region is the only area in the state in which ethnic foods are as popular as American cuisine. Miami, the Magic City, is a bustling hub of sightseeing, nightlife, and culinary extravagance. South Beach alone includes hundreds of boutiques, nightclubs, and restaurants, so you can spend the entire day exploring only a portion of this neighborhood. While you're in the area, you might as well check out some of Miami's distinct New World, or Florribean, cuisine, which combines American, Latin American, and Caribbean culinary traditions.

The Florida Keys

Though the island of Key West, where it's common to see free-roaming chicken in the street, is incredibly small - only two miles long and four miles wide - it showcases tons of culture. The island on which Ernest Hemingway's former home is housed, Key West takes much pride in its art scene. The Studios of Key West contains a dozen working studio spaces, an exhibition hall and sculpture garden, and adjoining residences. This setup, established in 2006, is credited as a new model for the artist community. The city hosts many popular annual events as well. One such event is the October Fantasy Fest, which brings, on average, 80,000 visitors to the island every year.

Our vacation rentals in South Florida allow you to experience this region in all its sunshiny glory. On hot summer days (which is any day in South Florida), our rentals offer a cool escape to sit back and relax, allowing you to recharge before your next beach adventure. Make sure that your Florida getaway is as luxurious as you deserve by booking your stay with us today!
