Who we are

  1. Bruce and I love travel and have done much in our 38 years together. We have been retired since 2017. Bruce had a career in political and comics cartooning. Karen was a public school principal. We are looking to travel more and enjoy locations more like a local than a tourist. We are adventurous, loving new experiences! We have done 8 exchanges and have another 5 scheduled for 2019. We are willing to take care of your pets. Non-simultaneous exchanges are welcome.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Home is located in an upscale gated country club with two golf courses and clubhouse. The community is within minutes of highway (one hour from Disney), five minutes from the Daytona airport and Speedway. Only twenty minutes from the beach. Lots of shopping nearby, but a car is necessary, which we provide. Environment tourism is quite popular with lots of activities available on the water, plus great hiking trails. The Orlando airport (MCO) is used by many international travelers and the shuttle service directly to our home is easy.

Best restaurants
We prefer restaurants owned and operated by locals with a farm to table emphasis. Our favorites include Martinis, The Cellar, Oyster Pub, Deck Down Under, Louis Pizza, and Cafe du Japon. There are several nice places in a small town south of us, New Smyrna Beach and west of us, DeLand.
Nightlife
There is a bar scene for younger adults, but not a club scene for older adults. Depending on the time of year there are concert opportunities and special events. There is a multiplex movie theater nearby that has food and bar service.
Favourite cafés
There are small restaurants for breakfast and lunch all around town.
Where to go shopping
There is an outlet mall nearby if you wish to shop popular brands. For boutique shopping we have three main streets - Beach in Daytona, Flagler and Canal in New Smyrna Beach and Woodland in DeLand.
