Hi Iris, I work the short term rental market and can certainly help you out. Large areas south of Disney permit this. Click on my picture and read what other people who bought short term rental say about me. Hope to hear from you. ... more

We purchased a home from CRF Resale’s two years ago. My husband and I are seasonal residents and we love the community and everyone is so friendly, makes us feel like we are home away from home.

The salesman we worked with was very informative and went above and beyond our expectations showing us many homes until we found exactly what we were looking for.

About $200K!


No, seriously, the houses on the Bellalago side can be more expensive because you are closer to Lake Toho and the larger club house. There are also bigger houses on that side of the development.

HOWEVER- living on the Isles side, I can tell you that our pool is NEVER as busy as the main one. That is a big plus for me because I want to be able to sit by the pool and write (book 5 comes out soon!) or relax in the hot tub without having to deal with heaps of little kids.

Also, it is nice to have direct access to both Pleasant Hill Drive, and Poincianna Road (front and back gates).

AND- almost all the classes offered by the HOA take place over on our Isles side so I can walk to Zoomba, Water Aerobics, or Cross Fit. Which is really nice.

Try Melbourne. One of the best small cities in Central Florida, with a vibrant arts community. Its best to stay as close to the ocean as possible. Other than that, I would say Fort Myers, or Sarasota, even though Sarasota is more expensive. ... more
