If you would like to be able to use the unit half of the year and then rent it out the next half, you would need to be in communities that are zoned for short term rentals (mostly in Davenport and Kissimmee's 34747 area code):

As others have already said, there are condos available in your price range, even an occasional home, but expect modest accommodations.
Condos will also carry high maintenace fees, so if you can do some work, your best bet may be to look for a fixer-upper single family home in a community zoned for short term rental. The HOA will be much more reasonable than a condo fee.
I would be more than happy to give you additional advice or assist you in your search for a vacation property so you're most welcome to contact me. 407-361-1694 or Melissa.m.gerace@ gmail.com

Mark's answer is right on the money!
To answer your question, yes there are properties available. However, it depends on your expectations whether or not the property is suitable for you. Most of my clients that are looking for vacation homes often find themselves wanting more when viewing homes below the 150k-200k price point. Though there are some good investment options available in this price range. Buying for long term rental gives you cash flow and appreciation. The downside is that you wont have a home away from home.
That being said, rates are awfully low and properties above the $150k mark can provide you with a more suitable vacation home. You could use the extra cash flow from an investment property to supplement the cost of the vacation property. Just something to think about during these times of low rates.
The reason I suggest this an option is because most of my investor clients are investing very differently this year vs the period of '08-'11. Back when properties were dirt cheap and REO's came on the market everyday, it was a great time to invest in cash flow property. Those same investors have been pulling equity from those properties to use for new properties that are focused on appreciation. Focused on growth areas and investing with the intention of building equity by taking advantage of low rates and easier lending standards.
So, to properly answer your question: there are properties available to you within your budget. I would just spend time researching all of your options and comparing. I hope that helps with your investment goals.

The other ting to keep in mind is that some of these places will have extremely high condo fees $400 to $600 a month is not uncommon. That's a lot of carrying costs.
