Planning your winter vacay rental? Whether you are a Snowbird trying to escape the cold or a family looking to work and school from the Beach, these tips will help guide you in the search for your perfect Winter rental.

Tip #1: Start Planning Early

Florida is a popular destination for Snowbirds and Winter monthly renters. Many of these long term renters choose to secure their condo a full year in advance so, if you are interested in booking a month or longer, it is important to start your search early! Thankfully, we still have a few great condos available for the 2021 season.

Tip #2: Location, Location, Location!

Florida has 1,350 miles of coastline offering many different experiences; something for everyone! If you are looking for a less known Beach town we recommend New Smyrna and Ormond Beach. Both family friendly Beach gems offer a wide variety of local activities.

Tip #3: Explore Local

So, you have picked where you are staying. Now what? Visit our “Things To Do” tab above for recommendations in New Smyrna Beach, Ormond Beach, Palm Coast, and Orlando.

There are also tons of online guides available to help you plan your Vacay itinerary. Visitors Bureaus can be a helpful resource in exploring local activities unique to the area.

No matter what time of year you are booking, it is so important to protect your vacation investment by adding trip insurance. CSA Travel Protection can easily be added to Florida Vacay reservations. Or, shop around and research the many insurance options available online. Purchasing the right insurance could save you thousands!
