Make a holiday rental, home or villa in South West Florida your home away from home

The paradise of the Florida coastline is renowned for its beaches, cosmopolitan cities with exceptional shopping, vibrant nightlife and exhilarating activities and theme parks. A Southwest Florida holiday home rental will not disappoint on those fronts. Southwest Florida is also known as a first class area for fly fishing, especially in the intriguing Everglades, a mangrove forest which meets the 10,000 islands of the Gulf of Mexico. The Southwest of Florida is a fantastic sun-drenched holiday destination with a laid-back atmosphere, and activities and points of interest at every turn.

Places to holiday in South West Florida

Naples prides itself on the amazing facilities for championship golf, superb fly fishing, sailing in the Gulf of Mexico and the fine sandy beaches which are found in this part of Southwest Florida. Naples has the second highest number of golf courses per capita in America, so there is certainly no shortage of challenging rounds to be played from a Southwest Florida holiday home. Naples Zoo’s night time tour uses night-vision goggles takes you past lions, tigers, monkeys and wild dogs, which is a real experience! For luxury villa rental in Florida, Marco Island has turned into a playground for the rich and famous.

Fort Myers is a historic old town with a luxury marina housing some of the most exclusive yachts in Southwest Florida.

Across the Calosoahatchee River is the new friendly town of Cape Coral, a haven for those wishing to take to the sea, where boats can be hired or chartered for easy access to the Gulf of Mexico.

Things to do in South West Florida

There are many magnificent beaches in Southwest Florida. They differ from the white sand beaches of East Florida, as they are more secluded and picturesque, with palm forests and fishing piers. Among the best are Lowdermilk, Naples and Vanderbilt Beach.

Fly fishing in Southwest Florida is serious business. Trout, redfish, tarpon and snook can all be caught, and if you take a self catering holiday villa in Southwest Florida, the freedom to fish and cook your catch far outweighs any benefit coming from staying in a Florida hotel.

The Everglades are an untouched wilderness, abundant in wildlife, with mysterious forests and open waters. They can be explored by foot, car, bicycle or plane, but the biggest adventure comes from getting in amongst the alligators by taking to the waters, either in canoe, boat or airboat.

Weather in South West Florida

Southwest Florida has the huge benefit of 335 days of scorching sunshine every year, and even the winters are filled with beautiful warm days, with yearly lows of 20°C.

Travel to South West Florida

Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) receives daily flights from the UK, but a change will be necessary, as there are no direct flights from the UK to Southwest Florida. There are many deals on cheap flights, and you will need to shop around to get the best deal.
