1 story modern waterfront house in Ft. Lauderdale, USA

Our family: We are experienced exchangers (25). Have experienced the UK, France, Spain, Germany, Canada and here at home too. Dick is an accountant/computer consultant, Martha is a cultural and education consultant and recently published a book in English and Spanish titled "Spain the Forgotten Alliance, Independence of the United States" that sells on Amazon; We have two adult children - Albert our son, a graduate of Georgetown University, is Director of Strategy for an international company AECOM based in San Francisco; our daughter Martha Jr. a principal in the architectural firm Smith Group JJR a national company and Ryan her husband an engineer is Vice President for the Southwest with SUNDT both in Phoenix, Arizona.They all have professional careers and do not travel with us often. We have 3 grandchildren - Tristyn who is 7 and twins Ashtyn and Aidyn who are 5 - all are well behaved "seasoned" world travelers - Due to parents work schedule and children's school when they do join us on vacation is only for one week or so. 

 Our home is located in a cul de sac at the end of a canal so there is little traffic whether automobiles or boats. Ours is a very comfortable, modern open plan house which makes it very bright., with an east-west orientation. Our heated pool can be enjoyed year round as well as our patio which is protected from sun and rain .Most of the rooms in the house open to the pool and patio area as shown in our photos. The kitchen opens to the pool and faces the canal bringing the outside in providing a tropical ambiance .

We have ceiling fans and central air conditioning and heating systems.  We keep our house very clean, orderly and well taken care of. We will keep your home the same way.
There is a dock in the backyard surrounded by foliage for nice shade where you can enjoy your breakfast and morning paper or a glass of wine in the evening. You can also try your luck at fishing.

We have 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms and a newly remodeled bright Mediterranean kitchen that opens to the patio and pool area where we enjoy most of our meals. 

Our furnishings mostly rattan and teakwood, reflect the Florida environment and are very easy to keep clean.

We are located very close to major highways and important avenues.The beach is only 5 minutes away and there are supermarkets, pharmacies and all kinds of shopping. A few blocks away there is a small park with swings, playground equiment and a running/exercise track only  for families that are residents of the area and their guests to use, so it is never crowded  Also a few blocks away there is a public library with free internet access.  Less than 1 mile away there is a commuter train which will take you south to Miami  or north to West Palm Beach.

 A car is necessary as other public transportation is minimal. We cannot exchange cars due to new insurance regulations in the state. However it is very inexpensive to rent a car particularly in the summer months as this is considered the "low season" in Florida so there are many good and competitive offers for car rental. 

A cleaning lady  comes every 2 weeks to take care of the house. She has been with us for many years and is completely trustworthy. A weekly pool service keeps our heated pool in perfect condition. A garden service is also contracted  to keep the garden in order.

A variety of attractions are available in this area all within driving distance such as Disney World, Sea World, Miami Seaquarium,  Space Center, Key West, famous South Beach, in addition  to Art galleries,  Children's Museums, the famous Norton Museum of Art, Seminole Indian Museum,   and others along with outdoor concerts, hicking, library programs with free internet access, parks including the famous Everglades National Park, beaches and many others all families can enjoy. There are many restaurants within walking distance and  European bakeries a few blocks away . A new Farmers Market "Living Green" has recently opened on Commercial
Boulevard only 5 minutes away and the outdoor market on 18th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue is open every Saturday morning. A vacation in our home is one all families will enjoy and always remember.
