Investing in Florida villas doesn’t mean “taking the Mickey”

2018-08-13 | Property News

The draw of Orlando’s theme parks remains huge, meaning that investment property in the region continues to bring steady rental income and great returns on sale prices.

However, increasingly people are looking beyond the pre-packaged appeal of Florida’s tourist hotspots. Mickey is not the only big cheese in this part of the USA. Mother Nature gave the state much to offer holiday makers and property owners long before the mouse arrived!

Beyond the theme parks

Interest in holiday homes that provide access to the sunshine state’s lesser known charms are playing their role in a buoyant market too.

This is the part of the USA where you can cruise down rivers in airboats, soak up abundant culture and arts experiences and shop until you drop.

However, its natural beauty – and year-round sunshine – will always be its greatest asset.

Florida’s Atlantic coast is one of the area’s perennial natural attractions. It features the USA’s top beach, the sugary white sands of Clearwater. Its close rival for the title is only minutes away further along the coast, St Pete Beach.

And this is only one stunning section of Florida’s incredible 360-mile east coast shoreline.

Places to be seen, or to hide

Other stop off points for those lucky enough to enjoy holiday homes in Florida include the glamorous West Palm Beach and Miami, and the laid back charms of Amelia Island and Vero Beach.

But, what if you want to “get away from it all” in Florida.

Surprisingly, this massive tourism magnet is also well endowed with secret places too; remote hideaways that only locals and owners of Florida villas know about.

For example, Bahia State Park, Caladesi Island, Weeki Wachee and Dry Tortugas National Park should be on your Florida to do list if you like to go off the beaten track.

Make of it what you will

This all adds up to a richly varied holiday experience in Florida.

You can head off to enjoy solitude on hundreds of miles of sandy beaches, observe wildlife preserves, or lose yourself in lively cities, soaking up experiences reminiscent of Latin American and Caribbean cultures. Or, you could “do Disney” and the abundant other parks.

Which one would you choose?
