Vacation, Seasonal, and Long-Term Rentals

One of the unique things about our vacation rentals in Southwest Florida, Ocala, and Western North Carolina is that each area has something special to offer. Let us help you trade a cold, gray, blustery winter for a sun-kissed, palm-fringed, blissful beach, horseback riding on rolling green hills, or a quiet vacation in the Western North Carolina mountains. Our agents can help you find the perfect place to land, whether you prefer a seasonal rental, long-term rental, or want to purchase your own vacation home.

Sanibel and Captiva Islands are known for their white sand beaches and serene atmosphere. Visit the islands and get on island time and learn what it really means to slow down. Fort Myers and Bonita Springs are more affordable and laidback, tropical Florida towns. Fort Myers Beach boasts a lively nightlife and music scene while Bonita Beach is usually a less-crowded gem. Naples is known for its shopping, beaches, dining and art scene. Cape Coral is one of the newest cities in the area. It features a network of interconnected, navigable canals, making it pretty easy to find a vacation rental home with a view. It’s also centrally located between Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, and the Islands.

Ocala is in Central Florida surrounded by beautiful horse farms and it’s known for being one of the equestrian centers of the world.
Golden Ocala features stables, equine care, lessons, horse trails, and sport training. The World Equestrian Center is minutes away from the Golden Ocala rentals in Golden Ocala Golf and Equestrian Club.

Cashiers, Highlands, Sapphire Valley, and Lake Toxaway vacation properties sit near the North Carolina and South Carolina border and are not far from North Carolina and Georgia state lines. The y are charming small North Carolina towns and the mountains and surrounding waterfalls speak for themselves in terms of the area’s natural beauty.
