These Florida West Coast homes are private homes with swimming pools, maintained through various management companies located minutes from the accommodation. While the homes are generally older than those in the Orlando Disney area, all units meet the criteria of a superior home with all the necessary extras to make the house into a home. The traditional Florida ranch homes feature great rooms, large pools and spacious sun decks and are the ideal environment for taking in the relaxing pace along Florida's Gulf Coast and the beautiful beaches.
