When I was a kid, my grandparents used to spend several months each year in their winter home in Florida. We visited them there a few times, and I always looked forward to those trips – not only did we get to see my grandparents but we got to enjoy the warm and sunny Florida weather and visit fun attractions like Disney World, Busch Gardens and the beach, of course.
I’ve always dreamed of having a Florida vacation home of our own – wouldn’t it be great to escape the cold winter temperatures any time you wanted, or take an affordable getaway any time of year?
I recently found out about Carefree RV Resorts, and now I’m dreaming of Florida home ownership all over again – especially in light of the minus 22 Celsius temperatures we’ve recently been experiencing!
An affordable and fun way to own your own vacation home near beautiful Florida beaches
Carefree RV Resorts is a family of 101 RV parks and Manufactured Home Communities across the United States and Canada. The majority of the communities are located in Florida, but Carefree also has properties in Arizona, California, Texas, North Carolina, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Ontario.
With 34 RV Resorts in Florida, including locations such as Daytona Beach, the Florida Keys, Orlando, Clearwater and Sarasota, Carefree RV Resorts have something to suit any budget or need. They have homes ranging from under 20K for pre-owned to 50K for brand new, fully customized homes. There is an additional lot rent paid either seasonally or annually.
You can choose from all ages communities which are suitable for families, or “age-qualified” communities for active adults ages 55 and older (which is really not that far off for me – gulp!)
Carefree offers a wide selection of new and used Park Model homes for sale in their RV Resorts, and mobile homes in their Mobile Home Communities.
Park Model Homes
A Park Model 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.
A typical Park Model is a single structure and is shorter and narrower than a Manufactured Home. They typically 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. They are under 500 sq ft.
Thinking about retirement?
Family vacations are fun, but maybe you’re dreaming of the day your kids move out on their own and you can enjoy retirement doing the things you want to do. Is shovelling snow really going to be on that list?
The lifestyle is really what sets Carefree RV Resorts apart. For those in or nearing retirement, this is their time to do the things they’ve always wanted to do. Learn how to play the guitar, join the pickleball team, finally take a class on using your new iPad… its all up to you! With our wide range of lifestyle offerings you can be as active as you want to be!
Retirement just isn’t what it used to be and Carefree RV Resorts and Communities provide an active lifestyle unlike any other in our industry. Launching this year, their lifestyle program offers a range of social, mental, and physical activities and programs that keep our residents hearts, bodies and minds active. Buying a home in a Carefree resort provides all of this within a warm, sunny setting!
I have already mastered my iPad, so I don’t have to wait for retirement for that, but pickleball sounds pretty interesting, no?
