Exchange home in Florida USA

Our home is a 210 m2 single family house ideally situated in the midst of the bustling Miami - Fort Lauderdale area. There are two international airports in the area, as well as several large universities, including University of Miami, Florida International University, Nova Southeastern University and Florida Atlantic University. University of Florida also has a research center for agricultural sciences here. The house is situated in Weston, a quaint town right on the edge of the Everglades National Park. Hikers, joggers and bicycle lovers will enjoy the nearby wilderness, and also the nice infrastructure surrounding our neighborhood and our town. The house is built on two stories, with a backyard / garden on the water. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, a modern open kitchen, a family / living room, dining room and a library / play room. There is a fabulous neighborhood pool with resort-style amenities 5 minutes away by foot, and lots of playgrounds for children too. If you have children that will attend school here, the Weston school system is among the very best in the Miami area and Florida as a whole. The high school ranked number 183 in the US (out of more than 20,000 high schools nationwide). There is plenty to do on weekends too: Miami itself has a lot to offer, and there are a dozen beaches that are just 30 minutes away. The Florida Keys are about 15 hours to the South, the Gulf of Mexico 1.5 hours to the West. Orlando is 3 hours to the North.

Note: we are looking for a full academic year exchange. We would like to put our kids in school for a full year in France to experience a complete cultural immersion

About Me
Hi, we are a family of two adults and three children (7, 11 and 13, all girls). we are a multicultural family. Marc is German and grew up in France. He studied in France, Spain and in the US. Mairim is from Puerto Rico, where she grew up until her twenties. We have been living in the US since 2001 (Boston, then Atlanta, Los Angeles, Boston again and now in Florida, close to Miami). Our three children were born in the US, but we speak Spanish and French at home. Marc is an entrepreneur (his company is www.calmetrix.com) and Mairim is an elementary school teacher at Broward Public Schools, but she also created a method to teach languages to children through music and songs (www.mmelodies.com). We moved to Florida two years ago, and we love it. We chose to live in Weston because it combines exactly what we were looking for: a quaint place to raise our family (yes, it's 30 minutes to the beach, but we prefer driving 30 minutes each time we go to the beach and enjoy more space and less noise where we live), close to nature (we're in the middle of the Everglades, that's nature!), a multicultural environment (it's fantastic in this place. The Latin American influence is incredibly enrichening and a true view of what America will always be about), and excellent schools (schools are really top of the pile in Weston, by all accounts). So we really found what we were looking for. What pushes us to look for a long-term exchange now is the desire to give our children a deeper experience of cultural immersion abroad. They are at the right age for that, and our professional situation is so that it works out. We would like them to experience daily life and school in France, for a full academic year. We're all very excited about the prospect. Ideally, we would find a family with a similar objective and desire to be immersed in another culture. We are happy to help with any formalities, including choice of schools and all administrative matters. One great thing about schools in our area is that they are used to seeing many pupils coming from abroad (mostly Latin America), and they have a great system in place to integrate them. So if your children are not totally up to speed in English, they will be well taken care of.
