Property description

( If this home is rented, please check our sister Maritime home at VRBO Listing #631694 - Both Homes are perfect rentals for the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show )

Originally constructed after the devasting GREAT MIAMI HURRICANE ( 1926,) this dwelling has outlasted the times up until the present day ( 2013.) Located directly on the “ newly constructed DIXIE HIGHWAY (1915) ” this location was one of the 1st “rest spots” after the DIXIE HGWY turned West.

In addition to being a private home for it’s first 30 years in existence, this location has been an office to the “ THUNDERBIRD MOTEL ” and also the “BEAVER APARTMENTS ” in 1950-1970’s, ( now the AMERICAN MARITIME OFFICERS TRAINING FACILITY ~ AMO across the street. )

The American Maritime Officers' purchased this home and the surrounding area to better facilitate marine education and living. ( est. 1982.) The home sat as a workshop under the AMO and then vacant for many years. However in 2013, The American Maritime sold off this home and others to make way for their future development ~

This home is now available to you again as a fully furnished rental called 'The Historic Maritime Manor,' located within the heart of Dania Beach, across the street from the American Maritime Officer's campus.

Close to the Beach, The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, GulfStream Park, and a short distance to all of the beautiful S. Florida locations ( South Beach, Coconut Grove etc ) you CAN'T go wrong with the Maritime Manor.
