Cabin Rental for Your Florida Vacation

Planning a Florida vacation?  Consider a cabin rental.  Florida has some amazing woodlands to explore–and some great Florida river cabins–all in the same place.  Here are some tips to find the Florida cabin rental home that’s right for you:

1. Choose a unique Florida vacation cabin and experience something new.

If you’re looking for something special, try a Santa Fe River cabin right in the heart of Florida.  Unlike the crowded beaches, you can enjoy a secluded cabin rental in the Florida woodlands, and go swimming, snorkeling and kayaking just steps from your door.  If you haven’t experienced the clear waters of a natural spring where you can see all the way to the bottom, you will find Rum Island Park and Spring to be a wonder worth visiting.

2. Make sure everything you need is included.

Many Florida cabin rentals will be all-inclusive, but be sure by checking the list of amenities.  Look for WiFi and cable or satellite TV.  Make sure there are dishes and a full kitchen and a grill.  Look for extras like a fire pit or comfy hammock.  Find out how many beds there are to accommodate your family.

3. Find a family friendly cabin rental for your Florida vacation.

If you’re traveling with kids, make sure the rental cabin is family friendly. Check the bedroom set-up to be sure everyone is accommodated.  Ask if there is camping available if you need it.  Be sure there are a bunch of photos of the cabin you are renting, so you know what to expect.  Foremost, make sure the Florida rental cabin you choose fits your family’s needs so you’re all comfortable.

4. Love the Florida vacation rental cabin you choose.

Keep in mind when you’re renting a Florida vacation cabin, you’re renting someone’s home.  It doesn’t have the same rules as a hotel.  Read feedback from other renters and make sure it’s what you want.  You get what you pay for, so expect at least a couple hundred a night for a rental cabin that accommodates several people.  Cheap rates may be attractive at first, but if it’s too cheap, there’s probably a reason.

5. Make your Florida rental cabin reservations early.

Cabin rentals in Florida can fill up fast, so reserve early to avoid disappointment. For the vacation season and holidays, you may need to rent as early as six months ahead.

Planning your cabin rental?  Florida’s Santa Fe River cabins are beautiful all year round.  Consider booking your Florida cabin rental with Rum Island Retreat to experience the best of the river and the woodlands.
