  • Description


    Come enjoy the beach and learn about the unique Florida Space Coast. I live near Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center, from where many astronauts and spacecraft have launched on rockets to outer space. Maybe you will have the fortune of witnessing a launch while you are here.

    I'm a 51-year-old, single man. I work from home as a software engineer. I have traveled a lot individually and as a Workawayer. I experienced such great hospitality as a Workawayer that I wanted to try being a host myself.

    My apartment overlooks the beautiful beach and Atlantic Ocean. We also have a swimming pool, jacuzzi, and tennis/sports courts.

    Learn about the history of our area with regard to space and surfing. You can visit Kennedy Space Center and other local sites and learn to surf (I will teach you). You can practice your English, too.

    I'm mostly interested in cultural and language exchange and to meet nice people. I'd like to improve my French, learn some of your authentic recipes from home, and maybe have you do some surf photography/videography.

  • Accommodation


    The Workawayer will have a private room with shared bathroom. Meals will be taken together unless you have other plans for the day.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I think your stay here should be about 4-7 days. That's long enough to experience the area and relax a bit and short enough not to risk becoming a beach bum and never leaving (which is what happened to me)! As a fellow Workawayer, I know the cost and logistics required to move from place to place when traveling, so I assume that my place is mostly suited if you are already in the region or are planning to visit Orlando. Most planes, trains, and buses go through Orlando (an hour from here), so I am willing to get you from/to Orlando when you arrive/depart.
