|Just arrived at our home for the week...|
When we found out that our Florida vacation was going to be with a few more people than we had expected, we decided to get a vacation rental home. In a vacation we had taken6 years earlier with my parents and siblings, we had rented a vacation home, and it was great. So, I naturally gravitated toward this option when we knew there were 4 families going on vacation!
Florida Home Vacation Rentals is a great company to work with. We used them BOTH times for larger family vacations. The staff is extremely helpful, and with each e-mail to see exactly how much we would be spending for the weeks we were looking at, they would e-mail me in less than a day, if not with in only a few hours. And no matter HOW many homes I had questions about, they happily answered all of my questions. And if they didn't know they answers, they found out quickly, and got back with me.

There are a HUGE selection of homes with anywhere from 2 bedrooms to 14! And everything in between. You can choose a condo home, or an actual home in a housing addition. Most additions are gated, some are not. You have the option of a heated pool, heated spa, grill, game room and much more.
Being that there were 4 families going on our trip, we chose a home with 4 master bedrooms. We also chose to have the pool/spa heated, and use of the grill. We had a game room, which was great for the kids (and the adults!). And you have a countless number of amenities, depending on the home you choose.
In the end, going with a vacation home, each family ended up spending less than we would have in renting from a hotel in the area. Which is always a plus with a large family!
