Rosen Vacations was founded by Palmer Rosen, an island resident and entrepreneur with a background in technology. Palmer attended the University of Florida for undergraduate studies and Columbia University for graduate studies, pursuing degrees in economics and health policy and management, respectively. Palmer has participated in businesses spanning the e-commerce, cryptocurrency, and real estate sectors. 

Raised on Sanibel but living in New York City as of 2015, Palmer longed for the beauty and easy way of life in which he was accustomed to in Florida. True to this desire, he purchased his first rental property on the island and Palmer's young family moved to the island. Initially, this property and subsequent others were placed with a property manager on Sanibel, however, their performance failed to meet his expectations and he felt like just a number.

In an attempt to integrate his proficiency in technology into the property management paradigm on Sanibel and Captiva, Rosen Vacations was created and the decision to manage external rentals, as well as our own properties, was made. In a property management environment where more than 97% of bookings and customer service  occurs online, we feel uniquely positioned to serve you best! Leveraging our technology and low overhead, we are uniquely qualified to offer owners the best service at just a 10% management fee structure.
