    There are loads out there, in general it seems better if you can deal direct with the owners rather than a travel firm as you know exactly what you are getting and where.

    We've used VRBO (Villa Rental By Owner) and for our trip this year we got one from the owner's section on TheDibb. If you give 'Florida villa rental' a Google you should get a few sites that cater for direct owner rental. TheDibb also has a very useful map of where all the villa communities are.
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    All my trip reports are now HERE.

    We used homeaway without issue for our last trip.

    Our booking through there put us in touch with the owner.

    We've used the Dibb and for the last two trips HomeAway (VRBO are owned now by HomeAway and most villa choices seem to be duplicated). The upside of HomeAway is that they proves the payments and provide some guarantees. This is no reason though not to do the necessary checks that the villa is where it says it is and is what is described.
