Miami/Cora Gables Moms! I need help.

Hi Everyone

DH is looking at a job in Cora Gables for Univ. of Miami.

We're a family of four w/ twin 11-year-old boys. We'd like to live on the beach, but assume that a suburb is more like it.

 

My question is more along the lines of: if my husband works for the Univ. of Miami in Coral Gables -- which community is nearby that gives a 20 minute commute and offers:

We're safety nuts -- I'm alone a lot when DH travels.

We homeschool so aren't worried about schools, but prefer to be in good school districts anyway.

We love pools and water life. We have a big dog and would love to find a dog park.

And we're big library people.

We will rent and can afford $2400/a month.

 

What is the homeschool environment like?

Thank you for any help!

Alley

I know this isn't much help but we were down there two months ago for a swim meet and stayed in Key Biscayne. It has everything you describe, except I would imagine the rents are higher then that. The meet was in the Coconut Grove area, near Coral Gables, at the Ransom Everglades pool, man was it beautiful!!!

Agree. Very expensive. Forget about the beach.

 

Well, I my question now is more along the lines of: if my husband works for the Univ. of Miami in Coral Gables -- which community is nearby that gives a 20 minute commute and offers:

 

safety

family fun

pools

libraries

etc.

 

I don't need to live on the beach -- that was actually a joke. And let's say I'll bump rent up to $2400/a month. (I'm learning.)

 

Also, doesn't anyone know what the homeschool culture is like?
