Airport is just west of Cypress Creek and I-95 (at Powerline). 20 miles gives you tons of options. Beach is only about 8-10 miles from there so you have all those condos to look into. Even at a 10-12 mile radius you have a lot of options.

There are some quiet nice places more West, in Tamarac, on Cypress Creek road. Only 15-20 minutes on Cypress Creek and you are at the airport.

You have TONS of living options. First, what is your age? Are you single? Married? Have kids? These factors will affect where you should live. If you are young or single, I'd say you may be happier living further east near the beaches. If you are middle aged and have kids, or are looking for a quieter more laid back area, then you may be happier living further west in a suburb. It all depends on the person.

The executive airport is very conveniently located, very easy to get to. The beach is actually only about 5 miles away or less. You just drive straight east on Cypress Creek Rd to US1, then turn either right or left on US1, and take Atlantic or Commercial across the bridges. There are TONS of living options.

If you want a quiet, safe rental area not too far from the airport, one area I'd check into is the Coral Tree area apartments. Is that Coconut Creek? There are tons of rentals in Coral Tree and most are nice ones. I think its located off of Sample Rd. and Powerline Rd. or in that general area. You wouldn't even need to deal with I-95 or the Turnpike to commute. You could just shoot down Powerline.

Looked at a couple of rental posibilies for myself in the area you described. $1000 for a ONE bedroom OUCH!!!! $40k a year will net you about $30k with $12k being spent on rent alone. I am not counting car, insurance, electricity, cable and internet... You will have to stretch that budget pretty thin.

renting is high in florida unless you wanna live in lauderhill (dont)

but you do have a million options all within 20 miles

boca is pushing the mileage limit but is easily the nicest option although you will pay more money there

$1000+ rent is standard if you live anywhere east of 95 or close to the water that isn't Section 8 housing. It is pretty difficult if not impossible to find a decent 1BR under $1000 anywhere in those areas. You can find cheaper rents for pretty nice 1BR's around $800-900 in Coral Springs and Coconut Creek. If I were the original poster I'd look in those areas.
