United States / Florida / Fort Lauderdale

Warm And Sunny House Near The Beach

Our Home

Urban house, conveniently located for all south Florida's attractions: warm sandy beaches, scuba diving, boating, golf, shopping, nature parks.

The house has a large kitchen, a dining room, a breakfast nook, a living room, a media room, two offices, two bathrooms, master and guest bedrooms, a laundry room, and a small private patio.

More about this property

We have updated the house with stainless steel kitchen appliances, including microwave and dishwasher.

We also have central air conditioning, laminate wood floors, and a jetted jacuzzi tub.

The media room contains a TV, DVD player, VCR, Playstation 2, and Xbox.

I am proud of our modest home (about 1600 sq ft / 150 m2) and enjoy keeping it clean (yes, really!) - and I will do the same for yours.

This is a great place from which to explore all of south Florida. Near downtown, beaches and freeways. The house will comfortably sleep up to 5 people, with a king size bed, a double queen size bed, and a quality double futon in the office.

Other Information: We don't smoke, but we do keep an ashtray on the front patio for you to use.


Our Neighbourhood

Located in a friendly middle-class neighbourhood. There is plenty to do. Some of our favourites are exploring the nightlife, or dining in downtown Fort Lauderdale, or watching a show at the local theatre. Cinemas, Butterfly World, year-round beach picnics, and nature hikes through the Everglades are other fun local activities.

More about the neighbourhood

We are an easy drive away from many fun spots:

7 minutes from the local beach with pier;
15 minutes from the tourist beach;
12 minutes from the gay beach;
12 minutes from Las Olas and downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Walking distance to local shopping centre, with three restaurants (Cuban, American and Sushi), clothing and electronics shops, grocery stores, etc.

Naples, the Florida Keys, Disneyworld and Orlando are all within 3-3½ hours' drive. Miami and West Palm Beach are both a one-hour drive away. Fort Lauderdale city centre is 12 minutes away. Key West is about 4 hours' drive away. We live 25 minutes from Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL), and an hour from Miami Airport (MIA).

Note: We are urban but not metropolitan! (Public transport in Florida is very inconvenient, compared with other places we have visited, so a car is recommended.).


About Us

We are in our mid-30s: a software developer (male), and a real estate agent and anthropology buff (female).

We have had seven successful home swaps so far, and we are both non-smokers, love animals, and keep a clean and tidy house.
