I think it is a good deal. I personally would be leery if the price was too low especially with dates that far out. The owner could be in trouble with low prices and not able to maintain the villa to a good standard. Usually the larger homes have much larger pools and pool decks.

Blimey I paid 1900 for a week in France last year for 6 folk. I think that Florida villas are fantastic value when you factor in all the amenities that usually are provided.

7 nights in a caravan for eight people in Devon is 965, or you could have a luxury villa for 14 people for 1000.

My son, partner and two children aged 2 and 7 have just paid 600 for a weeks holiday in a 2 bedroom caravan in devon 28ft by 10ft. I also think you are getting a bargain.

I haven't named names or put links up I am just saying that the cost for a 6/7 bed villa is a lot of money for what you actually get.

Oh and I wasn't taking about renting off here. I was talking in general.
I have been travelling to Florida for 19 years and have owned since 2003. In that time my prices have gone up once. The amount of competition determines your rate and having rented myself before owning, back in 2002 a 4 bed was 450/500 a week. Rates perse have not risen with inflation ..totally the opposite. You only need to look at the MLS in the last 3 years and look at bank owned properties where the owner has just walked away to see that low rates = bankruptcy. So many owners relied on TOs who paid low rates and they have suffered most ,so much so that the inventory is not there for them and Virgin are scrambling around to find homes for guests they cant house. Based on that rates will rise and after 7 years with no increase its about time.
Compared to anywhere else Florida Villas have been a bargain and still are. I am just sorting out a trip for California for September and the rates for holiday rentals make mine look a pittance.

We rented a 7 bedroomed villa at Emerald Island in 2003 and it cost us 750 a week.
I would expect to pay 1000-2000 a week almost 10 years on.
The majority of people would not be a family paying solely and would usually be 2/3 families sharing the cost, thus making it a pretty cheap way of getting luxury accomodation.
Have you looked at the same standard and sized accomodation anywhere else like Europe?
Now that is eye watering
