Hi all, I have a good friend who is a para and just had a baby with her wife.  Together with both sets of grandparents, they are looking to rent a place for an accessible home ANYWHERE in Florida over the Christmas holidays.  I told her that I would post this in Reeve Connect because there were so many people with good information.  Please help if you can.

    OH I have a great spot I'll share! It may already be booked for the holiday season, but I'll get back on with the link. VRBO has an option to filter for wheelchair accessible and has lots of good options when I was looking with that filter.

    Air B&B has accessibility filters and has several houses in Florida that may meet your needs. Some of the filters include wide entrances, no stairs/ steps, equipment, accessible bathrooms, and more.
    Check their Accessible Listing Instructions to learn how to use this amazing feature.

    This one is definitely for bigger groups. But I love the concept of having accessible access to the beach via and accessible trail. https://www.amilocals.com/anna-maria-island-rentals/Paradise-Beach As I mentioned before if you put in wheelchair accessible filter on VRBO they had lots of great options. Or hotels are always great to stay in because they are accessible. There's a new Marriott hotel in built in Panama City that we looked into that had a ramp down to the beach too.

    Thank you @BrittanyFrank-- looks like a great place but unavailable over the holidays.  I will keep looking.  Unfortunately, even when I put the accessibility requests in place on Air BNB, nothing comes up as available or meeting those needs.  Will check VRBO too @Patricia_PRC.  Thank you!  I am feeling a little like a Reeve Connect Fairy Godmother trying to make this happen and it's not even for my own vacation!  :)  Thank you for your help everyone!

    @heatherkrill I know even with the filters a lot are not practical. And Christmas break is a tricky time to find housing anywhere warm. Maybe try booking out for next Christmas while you're searching!
