Can anyone recommend areas in Boca that might be a good fit for us? We have elementary-age kids and will be looking in the $300-400K range. We will rent for at least 6 months but would prefer to not have to change schools after renting. I am a gardener and need a place that would allow a small backyard vegetable garden and fruit trees. We don't need a huge lot but don't like tiny lots where you can reach out and touch the house next to you. Thanks for any input!

I would look in the Verde, Del Prado District both are ELEM and the best being Del Prado in Boca...and Omni Middle both of these elem schools feed into it..6 month rental will be difficult to find without paying a HUGE premium and even that alot of places wont do 6 months...I would start with Bocaexecutives.com as u can pull Sub-Divisions by Schools..

Good Luck

We lived in West Boca really West and were not happy with the Schools...as we have a Elem Child and a HS Child

The veggie garden thing- you will want to ensure that you are allowed to plant one if you look in a deed-restricted community.

OTOH, southeast Boca- east of US 1- would probably give you the option to have a veggie garden. You will not get as much house and it would probably be older, but the lots are a nice size and you'd probably even get a mature mango tree or two- this used to be a mango grove, I've been told, and there are different varieties of mature trees.

The location can't be beat. Can walk/bike to everything- library, city tennis courts, parks, shops, beach, museum, movie theater, green market on weekend, restaurants.

You could get a six-month rental in my neighborhood, but it would be an older home that an investor is looking to sell, so no frills.

OK, you sold me with the mango trees ;-) A mature mango in my yard just might trump good schools, LOL.

Thanks for the input from both of you. I'll check out all those areas.

Sounds like a neat area. Is there a name to it that realtors would use to refer to it?

We're looking right now. There's a couple we're looking at but want to return this week and look some more.

We were in that area Mr T and we were not happy with Waters Edge or West Boca HS...we also just didn't care for that area...We love being Central and love our schools...Our Son is in Spanish River and it was the Best Choice for us to move him and he Couldn't be happier he has alot of really nice friends and is very challenged Academically...Our Daughter is thriving in her school here I wont go into it but it just wasn't a good match...She is looking forward to attending Omni Middle as she has friends that attend that school and they love it...
