I've been reading thru all the threads about South Florida and the best and worst places to live. Looks like we are making a move the beginning of summer with the intentions of renting until we find the best place for our family ( 2 kids, 11 and 9 ), while my husband works in Davie.
I've read alot about how the kids stay inside during the summer because it is so hot!
Here's my thought...why not rent a beach house or condo for the summer to enjoy the water while we look. Are there areas you would recommend with a decent commute to Davie?

Definitely look in the Las Olas area. I know someone who specializes in this - we got our house through him - we are renting a furnished house downtown in a gated area for $2900 on the intracoastal and walking distance to the beach. Those deals aren't always available but take a look at their website: http://www.eastcoastrents.com/ They're also neighbors. Good luck!

It also just occurred to me that we are renting long term. Short term is usually not as much of a bargain, but in your favor, you are looking in the off-season.

Look into condo's for rent on the beach in Hollywood / Hallandale area...... Not sure if they would do short term rentals but worth the look.

Easy commute to Davie

Is it so hot in the summer that most Floridians head north? I would have thought the summer would be their peak season? Thanks for the website, I will take a look.

Exactly, plus it is nice elsewhere, and less people need the escape. All in all, it can get pretty dead around here.
