Florida - Beach Information - Fun Things to Do - Tips

Where are the best beaches in Florida? The most popular vacation spots are: Panama City Beach, Fort Walton Beach, and Miramar Beach! With 825 miles of beaches to choose from, come to enjoy the relaxing waters, stunning sunrises and sunsets and sand that is powdery smooth and filled with seashells to collect.

How do you rent a vacation beach house? Hotel rooms are nice, but there's nothing quite like renting a beach house with your family and friends. Beach House vacation rentals give you more privacy than a hotel, enough space for your entire family, and that special feeling like a private, peaceful home away from home. Here are some tips to help you find an amazing beach rental.

Florida Beach Vacation Fishing
Know when you want to go. Have your dates picked out before you start researching. Beach rentals are in high demand and when you start searching, it is likely that more than half of what you see is already booked. Knowing when you are going will help you narrow down the choices and save you a lot of time. Keep in mind that most houses rent 7 or 14 days at a time, Saturday to Saturday, with some doing a Sunday checkin. Condos are more flexible.

Choose a Destination. Here on BeachHouse, you can search statewide using our helpful SEARCH BY DATE page, which has a map showing you where all the cities are that have available options for your dates. There are lots of ways to filter the search results, such as Sleep #, Bedroom #, Type, Pet Friendly, Waterfront, etc. This page is very time saving and helpful for you to find those not-so-well-known gems so you can avoid the big crowds.

Make a Nice-To-Have Checklist but don't get too hung up on it. Yes it might be great to bring your fur baby along, but very few rentals allow pets - only 10-15%, so that will greatly reduce your options if bringing your pet is a necessity. Must your beach house rental have a pool? Must it be beachfront? Those 2 things together may sound ideal, but these are the kind of rentals we call "unicorns". Yes they do exist but they are rare. It is best to focus on which one of those is the most important - a pool or being beachfront. Insisting on having both of those may lead to a frustrating and empty search. Now if you are okay with a condo, beachfront rentals with pools are plentiful and easy to find.
