Homestead vacation rentals

Explore Southern Florida from Homestead

The welcoming and historic Floridian city of Homestead is just 30 miles south of Miami. More relaxed than its bustling neighbor, Homestead offers some stunning vacation properties and a family-friendly gateway to explore Southern Florida’s gorgeous white-sand beaches and the unique natural environment of the Everglades. The historic downtown area is packed with great restaurants and varied boutiques – making a Homestead vacation rental a great choice for every aspect of your stay.

Airboats and gators in Homestead

Take an airboat tour to explore the waterways around Homestead – zipping along the swampy waters, spotting alligators, and ibis amongst the sawgrass, is an unmissable experience. You can get even closer to Florida’s most famous natives at Everglades Alligator Farm – a fun family day out just a short drive south. There are also wonderful paddle trails to explore; heading off in a kayak on a sunny day is a great way to experience this unique water-rich environment. If nature isn’t your thing, a day shopping at the nearby Florida Keys outlet mall offers up treasures of a different kind.

Homestead’s coral castle

Homestead boasts many family-friendly attractions – not least its famous Coral Castle; a unique attraction, and a hand-carved endeavor of love hewn from coral rock. Perhaps Homestead’s biggest draw is the Homestead-Miami Speedway – home to NASCAR, Sprint Cup, and World Truck races. And, away from the roar of the engines, the Homestead Championship Rodeo offers a more traditional Florida entertainment – featuring real-life cowboys. What’s more, just a short drive south from your Homestead vacation rental, all the attractions of the Florida Keys are on your doorstep.

Homestead’s year-round warmth

A Homestead vacation rental is a great choice throughout the year. November through March are the driest months, while May through September are the hottest. You can expect temperatures to climb into the 80s and 90s in Homestead during the tropical summers. But, even during the winter months, lows only reach the mid-50s and warm days in the 70s are not uncommon – making beach days and soaking up the sunshine a year-round possibility.

Beautiful national parks in Homestead

The city is bookended by 2 national parks, and 10 miles to the west of Homestead you can visit the tropical mangrove forests and sawgrass-bordered waterways of Everglades National Park, home to alligators, ibis, eagles, manatees, and Florida panthers. To the east, Biscayne National Park’s barrier islands and white-sand beaches are a natural paradise of a different kind. Offshore, its colorful coral reefs draw divers and tropical fish alike.
