Question Private homes for rent for weddings/special events?

Hi ladies.....

Been a while... I took about a 6 month break from planning just to back up and punt. So with the new year (and a very motivated MoH!), I'm back to the drawing board and getting things decided.

We've been looking at beachfront B & B's (here in FL) for the location (to do the ceremony on the sand, then a sunset beachfront reception). I've got one in mind that I'm really liking, but I've heard from other people who've attended weddings at private beachfront homes (where it was rented out specifically for the event), and I really like the idea of this (especially since it gives more freedom as far as choosing a caterer, etc....), but cannot find any resources for FINDING homes that are available to rent in this manner (i.e. for a 3 day weekend or something)...

Has anyone done (or looked into doing) something like this? If so, where (what websites?) did you find the listings for such homes? I'm specifically looking for beachfront or riverfront (the St John's River).

thanks!!

Check craigslist for vacation homes near where you want to rent and call or email them - most of them would be willing to rent it to you for a weekend for something like that. Also check FRBO.com and VRBO.com - this is where owners list vacation property for rent and some migt be amenable to letting you rent their home for a wedding/reception.
