Economic Impact Study
Erehwon Retreat was the first Vacation Rental within our Historic District. We’ve seen many other home owners join. The 2018 economic impact of Florida’s vacation home rental industry represents $16.6 billion in direct spending and $10.8 billion in indirect spending, totaling $27.4 billion. The direct spending amounts to nearly $46 million a day and approximately $1.9 million every hour.
In 2017, we approached 1/3 of our former guests by Email and asked them to respond to our economic survey. We’re sharing the results and a wonderful Jerome Kern and P G Wodehouse song from 1917 for your added enjoyment.
