    Hi all,


    I wanted to see if anyone has done a home rental in Florida for a wedding/reception. I know in Mexico/Caribbean villa/home rental is common with some great properties on the ocean/beach.


    Any ideas,pictures, etc would be greatly appreciated.

      I haven't done it, but looked into it for a while.  I guess the first questions is always "what's your budget?".

      In a very general sense, I found that places with direct water/beach front were $5000 and up, and IF they allow wedding at all (Many expressly forbid it), they charge an additional surcharge; $1,500 seemed to be the going rate.


      If you're still looking, feel free to PM me and I'll try to hunt down what info I collected.  (I live in SoFL and have a little more knowledge of the Keys than average).

        Thanks! I am so indecisive lately so I might take you up on your offer for more information.


        Just curious, since you were looking at home rentals - have you decided on a location?

          I held my wedding/reception at a house rental in Ft Myers Beach. The location felt like our own little resort! 


          Here are some pictures:




          FYI....The owner only allowed 30 people max at the time I had it, which was 3 years ago.
