Vacation Home Dreams Are Finally Within Your Reach! #LiveCarefreeRV @CarefreeRV #Ad


disclosure    I’ve always loved living in New York City.  Not only is it truly the city that never sleeps, but there is a resilience about New Yorkers that is steadfast and ever-present.  The only downside to living in New York is the fact that it does have some cold and harsh winters.  For many years, my husband and I have considered purchasing a vacation home in a warm-weather state to provide us with the perfect winter getaway.

    We both have family and friends who live in Florida so that has always seemed like the perfect fit when it comes to securing that paradise destination to head to during the cold-weather months here in the Big Apple. Hubby and I have always thought that this would be out of our financial reach for years but Carefree RV Resorts has taught us otherwise.  With 34 RV Resorts in Florida, Carefree RV Resorts have something to suit any budget or need.

What Is A Park Model Home?

    One option that they provide is a Park Model Home which is a smaller, single-wide home that is considered a recreational vehicle. Park Models are designed for placement in RV resorts, campgrounds, or locations where smaller trailers are an acceptable living environment.  Generally, they are shorter and narrower than a Manufactured Home.  Additionally, they usually have one bedroom, one bath, an eat-in kitchen and living room. Park Models are typically eight to thirteen feet wide and have one or two bedrooms and are under 500 square feet.

The Carefree RV Resorts Lifestyle:

    For those in or nearing retirement, this is your time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do. Learn how to play the an instrument, join a new sport, finally take a class on navigating social media… its all up to you!  Their wide range of lifestyle offerings you can allow you to be as active as you want to be!

    Retirement these days is all about new beginnings and Carefree RV Resorts and Communities provide an active lifestyle unlike any other in their industry. Launching this year, their lifestyle program offers a range of social, mental, and physical activities and programs that keep their residents’ hearts, bodies and minds active. Buying a home in a Carefree resort provides all of this within a warm, sunny setting!


Florida Is The Perfect Destination!

    I never knew that buying a permanent vacation spot right at the beach was possible, never mind affordable!

    Florida truly is the perfect setting for everyday enjoyment and unforgettable visits. With over 50 Carefree destinations and affordable Florida vacation homes—including Daytona Beach, Naples, Orlando, Tampa, Key Largo and Sarasota.

    There’s no better time to consider buying a vacation home in Florida, and to help with the fun and relaxation, as well as to make it even more affordable, Carefree is now offering all of us their very own passport to paradise!

Passport To Paradise:

    The “Passport to Paradise” offer lets you plan a 4-night stay vacation home visit at prime Florida destinations based on your interests and preferences. Carefree will select properties that have everything you are looking for to preview during your personalized visit to ensure it’s everything you dreamed it would be before you purchase.

    With the help of a Carefree sales advisor, your visit will be planned at prime Florida destinations based on your interests and preferences.  They’ll select properties that have everything you are looking for to preview during your personalized visit.

Availability varies by property.  If you plan your visit before April 30, 2015, every home buyer will receive a $1,500 check within 15 days after close of their resort home.

  1. I love living in Florida. It really is the best place to live and vacation!

  2. kristimaloney says

    I would love to have one of these vacation homes. They really are affordable and cute too!

  3. I love how affordable the property in Florida is. At one time, I actually considered moving there, but it gets too hot & humid for me.

  4. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    Right now, we are trying to find a Vacation home for a month or two in Florida for next March. I decided I want to be where it is warm. I don’t know that I want to buy… but that is an option.

  5. My dream vacation is Ireland, but that’s not a warm area. We try to make it to Florida at least once a year, usually to the Destin area.

  6. I loved Hawaii. That would definitely be my dream vacation destination.

  7. I think your idea is a great one! We actually live in Central Florida, but we are in the process of working with a realtor to find the perfect beach condo to purchase. We plan on using it and allowing friends and family to use it, and renting it out when it’s vacant – hopefully it will pay for itself, eventually! I’ve always wanted to go to Greece on an extravagant vacation, but this year we’ve already scheduled a cabin in the Smoky Mountains, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be thrilled with that when the time comes 🙂

  8. Joanna Sormunen says

    Sounds like a great option! I agree, spending the golden years in a warm place is definitely the way to go!

  9. I’ve enjoyed my time spent in Florida. It’s one of my favorite vacation spots.

  10. My dream vacation right now would be somewhere warm! Florida would even do 🙂

  11. Lois Alter Mark says

    Now that we live in Southern California, I think we’ve found our dream destination!

    • Lesley Stevens says

      I used to live there, the weather is perfect all the time but dang, taxes, fuel prices, and traffic. Eeeek. I think you’ll need a vacation home sooner than you think 😉

  12. A Debt Free Stress Free Life says

    Is that a real picture of the house? If so it’s super cute! I always wanted to RV around the country but the older I get the less I want the hassle. A one stop destination has way more appeal.

  13. Lesley Stevens says

    This is very interesting. I live in Arizona and we get a lot of snow birds down here. Lots of them have vacation homes here because its warm in the winer and Spring Training baseball is exciting.

  14. Wow, how interesting. I would love to have a vacation home. One Day!

  15. Somewhere always warm would be my dream. Why? Because I live in Canada and the winter is mighty cold, so I would love to escape!

  16. I have always wanted to have a vacation home in Florida. My aunt has a beach place down there and I have always been jealous.

  17. I dream of having a vacation home. I’d love one right where I grew up, in L.B.I., but I could never afford a second home that expensive.

  18. Trista M. Laborn says

    I’m from NYC and you are right there is very harsh winters and we do have resilience about us that is steadfast and ever-present. My dream vacation is in hawaii, the north shore!

  19. I’ve never been interested in living in Florida because of the hurricanes. It’s almost like living in the Caribbean. While I love vacationing there it’s just not for me to live there. I am contemplating moving to Canada or even the UK though. I really don’t mind the winters. 🙂

  20. celebbabylaundry says

    I go to Florida a lot and it is beautiful, I’m not sure if I’d move there though!

  21. Debbie Denny says

    Ours is usually a little rv. I think these are great ideas.

  22. Florida is our dream destination. Hubby and I have been talking about moving there when the kids move out. It’s so much warmer than cold Indiana!

  23. A Park Model Home sounds like a wonderful vacation home. It would be so nice to own one someday.

  24. Florida is my mom’s favorite place in the US – though I never been there myself.. I think I would want to next time.

  25. Mama to 5 Blessings says

    Sounds like a great option especially for our family of 7. Lodging is always an issue because there is never enough room in a hotel!

  26. Chrystal M. says

    Sounds perfect to me. I am all about tiny homes and downsizing. And, I could go for a home in Florida right about now.

  27. That sounds like a good option! I’ve always wanted to head to Florida to visit 🙂

  28. Oh I would love a vacation home! First we aim for a family house though. Maybe some day

  29. I would love to go somewhere warm, somewhere where I could just curl up and feel the warmth and feel good. x

  30. Richard Hicks says

    Carefree is what it is all about once you get past a certain age!

    • Carefree Caitlin says

  31. Now I want to go on vacation!! ha/ha My dream destination is Wales. My grandma is from there and I just want to see what it looks like in person…one day!! 🙂

  32. Alison Shaffer says

    looks like a fun vacations, especially this time of year

  33. What a great idea! My dream vacation destination is in Jamaica. We went there for my honeymoon and I fell in love!

  34. My dream destinations currently are Italy and Greece. Would love to return to Ireland for a lengthy stay but want to hit those two first!

  35. I would love to take the family to Scotland, Ireland and Italy. Then take a very long vacation in Spain.

  36. I can attest to how awesome Florida is! I am a native and the beaches are wonderful!

  37. I’d love to visit Florida some day. I actually haven’t ventured too far from home in a while…it’s about time for a vacation.

  38. Meagan Bailiff says

    I really want to go back to disney world one day, hopefully in the next few years. of course i’d love to go overseas one day, but disney world is hard to beat!

  39. Sandy Cain says

    Oh, I would love to go on vacation to Hawaii! There really doesn’t seem to be much chance of it, though. I think the closest I could come to vacation any time in the near (what’s near? within 5 years?) future, is if I go and visit my cousin on the Gulf Coast of Florida and stay with her.

  40. Marti Tabora says

    I live in Florida, but I think the passport to paradise is really cool. I think it’s great for those who live in colder climates.

  41. A cruse around the Hawaiian Islands stopping at each island. There are so many things I would love to do and see there. Not having to change hotels appeals to me too.
