As the seasons shift in the Northern Hemisphere, it can be tempting to chase the sun south. But rather than buying a vacation home and being tasked with all the responsibilities that come with ownership, the option of renting a luxury property in a warmer climate—even in locations close to home—can be an ideal solution.
With increased time spent indoors, it can be a challenge to safely travel for some much-needed time away. From equestrian estates to palatial condos to beachfront bungalows, Florida has sunny rental homes for all tastes and lifestyles.
An Equestrian Estate in Wellington
Escape the ordinary and spend a season in this elegant equestrian oasis in Wellington. The sunny home is set on 5.5 acres with four bedrooms, each with its own ensuite. Stylish and contemporary interiors let guests unwind in a refined environment where arched ceilings and white walls welcome in the light. This home may appeal in particular to horse enthusiasts: located in the private equestrian community of Palm Beach Point, the property features a barn with English-style stalls, a Grand Prix ring, and all the amenities that the rider might require.
An Airy Condo in Miami Beach
Breathe in the fresh air from the terrace of this fifth-floor apartment, which faces the Atlantic in Miami Beach. The nearly 7,000-square-foot rental is available by the month, has seven bedrooms, and is outfitted with acoustic soundproofing throughout. The interiors are a calming blend of contemporary and mid-century modern, with wood-paneled walls, teak dining furniture, and pastel accents incorporated throughout. It’s a restful, spa-like space where you can take in the ocean views and slow down with a glass of your preferred vintage—the home features a built-in wine refrigeration system.
An Island Retreat in Boca Grande
This secluded slice of paradise is situated on state-preserved land in Boca Grande, providing guests with serenity amongst the trees.

Designed with furnishings made from organic materials and splashes of turquoise throughout, the home is just as tranquil as its surroundings.
