The Quality of Time

Secret Places was formed in 1997 firmly determined to develop something exceptional in prestigious accommodation for the Florida vacation experience. At Secret Places we know it’s all about the quality of time. We understand how much your choice of accommodation can make or break your vacation experience, so all our Florida Gulf Coast holiday homes are carefully chosen for their superior style and comfort, outstanding views and prime waterside locations. At Secret Places we feature an outstanding selection of Cape Coral vacation homes, Fort Myers vacation homes, Bradenton vacation homes, Naples vacation homes and Marco Island vacation homes. We do not compromise quality for cost and we strive to ensure that a vacation spent in one of our homes will be a special experience with lasting memories and not simply just "somewhere to stay."

South Florida Natural Beauty

Map of Florida Gulf Coast LocationsFlorida stretches more than 400 miles from its state line with Georgia to the Florida Keys.

It's famous for its coastline, its Everglades, and its colorful coral reefs.

South Florida is an area of incredible natural beauty... from warm, salty, emerald green waters dotted with thousands of tiny islands in the Gulf of Mexico... to miles of white sand beaches with high-rise condominiums, hotels and trendy clubs along the Atlantic Ocean... with a dash of The Everglades cypress swamps, wetland prairies and pine forests home to a variety of wildlife...

South Florida has something for everyone!
