  • Everything I hoped for and more!!

    "This home was just that a "home" for feel comfortable in! The pictures don't do it justice! My 7 dive friends and I spent 5 days here and kept saying how perfect it was! The owner is so sweet and quick to answer any questions we had. We will be back for sure!!!"

  • Awesome vacation and week of baseball!!!

    "We just returned from a week of vacation mixed with a little World Series baseball tournament, and what an awesome week it was!!! The unit was awesome and met every need for me and my family of 5. The kids loved the putt putt course in the back yard, we could choose from the many pools within our area, the owners were very accessible for any questions we had. Very nicely decorated, we had a lot of baseball team members in the same complex and when they would drop by to drop off or pick up items, they all complimented how nice our unit was. I think reviews from previous renters are very helpful when looking for a place to stay in a new area. I just wanted to add mine for any possible future renters. Very nice and is just as the pictures show. Thanks to Vaughn rentals, and if we are in the PCB area again we will definitely be calling you!!"

  • Simply Wonderful

    "First off, loved the parking spot. Right by the door to the elevators. Perfect! The unit was super clean and ready to be enjoyed for a perfect vacation. The view from the condo was gorgeous. The beds were very comfortable. While we didn't use the bunk bed room, I thought it was a little more spacious than I was expecting. Not huge, but big enough for kids to get in and out of bed and not be in a hallway, like many beach condos. I was worried about the noise level, but I could only hear other guests when they were out on their balconies and us on ours or we were down at the pool. The pools are small and I guess could get crowded during the peak times, but it was fine for us. We had our baby with us and didn't need a huge pool. Who needs that when you have the beautiful ocean to swim in, just a few more steps away? The only 2 things I think the condo need are pot holders. We used the oven and didn't have a way to get hot pans out of it. Also, I would love a larger table on the balcony to be able to eat meals out there while I enjoy the gorgeous views. Loved the beach service. The guy was friendly and accommodating. When we got to the beach, he was usually right there to set up our umbrella and chairs, if all the ones he set up were already taken, or else he would show us where the available ones were. If you want to be where all the action and traffic is, then Okaloosa Island might not be the place for you. The island is quiet and not as much traffic. It is only a short drive over the bridger and you are where all the touristy traps and action are. We will definitely stay here when we come back next year."

  • Visting From Veracruz

    "We really loved this location and the home was just the way we like it. Its a warm and cozy beach cottage. We found it very pleasing and priced perfectly. We had the best time ever and even though it rained a few days we made the best of it. We will be returning soon."

Florida Travel Tips

Beach-laden Florida is the perfect destination for anyone who is looking for a sunny escape. There’s plenty for everyone here - check out some of the top areas and attractions across the state:

The Panhandle

Florida’s panhandle, also known as the Emerald Coast, borders the Gulf of Mexico and is known for its resorts, beaches and natural beauty of the Gulf Coast National Seashore. Here are some of the best things to do by area:

- Pensacola: Lay out on the perfect white beaches, check out military history at the National Naval Aviation Museum and take a stroll through the historic district.

- Panama City: Panama City Beach Spring Break is the major draw for co-eds every year. It gets pretty wild, so if you’re planning a family vacation, you might want to come at a more relaxed time of year.

- Destin: Go kayaking or hiking in the stunning Grayton Beach State Park, lay out on the bone-white beaches of Henderson Beach State Park and see history at Fort Pickens.

Orlando Area

Though inland, Orlando is the entertainment capital of Florida and perhaps the theme park capital of the U.S.

- Visit all of the sites at Disney World - the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and water parks Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon.

- Young children will love to see their favorite characters and movies come to life at Universal Studios and older kids will appreciate the Harry Potter and Marvel-themed attractions at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.

- Check out Seaworld and then cool off at its Aquatica Waterpark, or swim with the dolphins and snorkel at Discovery Cove.

- Don’t miss a visit to the Kennedy Space Center as well!

Northeastern Florida

The biggest draw here is the Daytona 500, the creme de la creme of NASCAR races, held here every February since 1959. The Jacksonville Jazz Festival, further north, is held in downtown Jacksonville every May with the biggest names in Jazz from around the world.

Southeast Florida

Southeastern Florida

- including Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Vero Beach - has a rich cultural heritage and fabulous beaches.

- South Beach in Miami Beach is a contender for Florida’s biggest party spot- it’s the place to be and be seen. For more of a family experience, visit the Miami Zoo, learn about the interesting history of Coral Castle and immerse yourself in nature at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and Villa Vizcaya. Don’t miss Carnaval in early March! It features Cuba cultural traditions, parades, excellent food and the Calle Ocho Music Festival.

- Fort Lauderdale and Vero Beach are the go-to family destinations in the area. Fort Lauderdale hosts WinterFest in early December every year with a decorated boat parade - it’s a must-see.

Southwest Region

Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Naples in southwestern Florida are nearly always sunny. They are quieter destinations on the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River, with many opportunities to see local wildlife and visit nearby islands like Sanibel and Marco Islands. Visit Manatee Park to see these gentle endangered giants or venture further south and take a guided tour into the expansive Everglades. Head south to Hemingway’s refuge in Key West or explore the other tropical-like Florida Keys.

Tampa Bay Area

The Tampa Bay Area has plenty to see and do.

- Visit the Florida Strawberry Festival in nearby Plant City, held every February and March, and check out Florida’s State Fair in February in the city of Tampa.

- Head to the beaches in Clearwater Beach, Venice and St. Petersburg - all fabulous and fairly quiet.

- Take a drive inland to Winter Haven to visit Legoland Florida - the largest of this amusement park chain in the world.

- Take the family to Busch Gardens for more fun than you can imagine.

- Visit the Renaissance Festival in Tampa for a unique experience. It’s held every year from February to April.
