When you visit our vacation home in Port St Lucie, Florida, if you have not rented a home before, you will probably be wondering what to expect – we were the first time we rented!
From the outside you will find our vacation home to be on a normal Florida street in a normal Florida community of normal Floridian people. The house is situated in a quiet but convenient area close to St. Lucie Medical Center.
The cul-de-sac location means little passing traffic, and any traffic is slow and predominantly consists of residents on the same street. The house is not in a gated community, you get the full Florida feel of living locally, and we like it that way.
