Do read my popular blog on short term rental condos: http://www.trulia.com/blog/mark_lemenager/2011/08/vacation_c…

No one keeps the stats you are after, but data on hotels is readily available here: http://corporate.visitorlando.com/research-and-statistics/or…

Your results in STR will come down to how much effort you personally put into marketing and taking bookings.

just type in something like 'Disney orlando vacation homes ‘ and you will be presented with hundreds of homes that are for rent. You will then be able to get a sense of what the owners are asking per night . some of them will have calendars too so you will be able to see how often the homes are rented.. I have been helping folks buy and sell vacation homes here in the area since 1999. So if you would like help from an agent who is totally immersed in the STR ( Short term rental ) side of the business then please get in touch

Please let me know if I can help you further

Derek,

You simply find an agent that covers rentals or an agent you like as we all have access to rentals in MLS and put them to work for you.

Good Luck

Hi Derek,

Unfortunetly there isn't a way to do that.
Short term rentals are basically in the hands of the owner, property manager and the company you use. You could Google Florida Vacation Rental Management companies, for an example. Find a few and click on a couple of homes and check their availability calendar.It really does depend on the management.....
There are some really good ones out there....and some really bad.
