Sun-kissed beaches. Stylish cities. Magical kingdoms. The Sunshine State has long been one of America’s premiere playgrounds, and Florida luxury villas let you experience the best it has to offer in suitably grand fashion.
Florida first boomed in the 1920s as a playground for East Coasters looking to escape the winter. Post-WWII, Florida luxury villas began popping up alongside resorts, offering everything from Mediterranean-chic casitas to modern marvels. By the 1970s, the opening of Disney World led to a boom in themed villas as well.
Today, Florida luxury villas can be found all across the state. No matter where you stay, expect modern amenities, contemporary styling, unparalleled privacy, and 5-star service, including from your villa specialist and concierge.
