Office With A View – Work From A Vacation Rental This Fall

An office with a view. Featured property, All Docked Out.

Let’s face it, Covid-19 hit us all like a ton of bricks. We were forced to lock down for months and life as we know it was cancelled. While it’s been an uphill battle, the country is opening up again, and locally, here in Florida, our vacation rental bans have been lifted.  Moving ahead with caution, especially in big cities such as Chicago, New York City and Atlanta with greater populations, companies are still saying employees can work from home until further notice.

We’ve noticed a trend among recent inquires of people looking to make a new home away from the city for a couple months this fall. Because let’s face it, who wants to be in a city right now?

Here are our top 10 reasons why you should work from a vacation rental this fall:

  1. Off Season Rates & Specials: Longboat Key’s slowest season is the fall, therefore, it’s when rates are the lowest!
  2. The Weather: Fall on Florida’s Gulf Coast is blissful! The days are warm, nights are cool, the humidity drops, and the afternoon storms of the summer end.
  3. Privacy and Seclusion: You can read more about what makes Longboat Key a Secluded Sanctuary HERE.
  4. Dedicated Work Spaces: We have a variety of homes with dedicated work spaces / desks to accommodate guests who need a quiet space to work.
  5. Internet Speed / Connectivity – Every one of our vacation rentals offers high-speed internet / Wifi.  Some of our owners with guests working remotely have even made arrangements for temporary speed increases.  Don’t be afraid to ask!
  6.  Bring The Kids – Was your summer vacation cancelled, graduation party postponed, a birthday with no party? We know how to make it up to the family! With several states offering distance learning options, we can’t think of a better recess than a swim in your private pool or lunch on the patio.
  7. Space and Cleanliness – Private home vacation rentals allow for the best option in regard to space, privacy and cleanliness. Our housekeeping staff remains committed to upholding the highest standards of cleanliness.
  8. Self Care – Feeling overwhelmed and stressed about all things COVID-19 is a very normal response.  It’s so important to go easy on yourself and practice self-care.  While you may still be working, the benefits of looking out at the water, a lunchtime walk on the beach, or an evening swim are immeasurable.
  9. Inspiration – Beautifully designed spaces of our vacation rental homes combined with the Florida sunshine will naturally fuel productivity.  There is something to be said for the ability to crank out quality work when you wake up in paradise.
  10. Uncluttered – Vacation rentals have only the essentials.  Plenty of empty cabinets, clear counters and desktops for you to spread out and stay organized.
