I'm relocating next month (corporate move). I'll be working a little west of MIA (near dolphin mall right off the fl turnpke,). My son also started a job near FLL. I'm convinced we want to live in broward (cooper, davie, W miramar or W pembroke), however, I will be in temp. quarters for two months alone since my son is away at training until mid nov. So should I consider temp quarters even in miami-dade. There aren't many corporate furnished short term rentals like we have here in DC. I was looking at temp quarters only around pem/miramar/doral. But maybe I should look further into dade. what areas should I consider commuting for those two months, that won't send me over the edge with traffic. I figure driving from the beach area to w. miami wouldn't be a good idea or am i always going against traffic?

I'm not sure about temporary housing anywhere, but it wouldn't exactly be a penalty sentence to live in Doral (where the mall is) for your first six months. There is a very nice apartment complex in Miramar, along Dykes Rd a little south of I-75 that would give you a pretty advantageous location for your commute. Traffic is generally 65-70 mph on the turnpike extension and you would only spend maybe two minutes on I-75 from there. I can't remember the name of it and I have no clue if they do short term housing, but it's worth a look.

Those are all completely out of the way of where they need to be.

I just checked it out and I am amazed at the lack of extended stay places in SW Broward. I know there is a place in Weston that isn't listed there, so I could always drive by and check it out next time I'm out.

I know of an oakwood in doral, a churchhill in pembrooke pines that I will check out during my househunting trip next week. also vacation villas at weston are within my temp quarters per diem, or close to it. i'm definetly only taking two momths at most, while I leave my furniture staged in my condo "to sell". after that, I'll want a permanent place (either 1-2 yr rental or buy). Lets hope my condo sells in a month and I can get my furniture down sooner. open house this weekend, the first full weekend on the market. woo hoo.

Stay away from ALL of Miramar...including Windsor and Courtyards by Nautica. Trust me on this. I have a co-worker that lives in those apartments and hates it because of all the thugs that hang out there all day and night.

I would stay in Doral if I were you. It's a very nice area that people seem to hate on only because it's located in Dade County.
