Smart Move Crew Accommodations is founded on the principle of innovation and flexibility. For over 22 years Smart Move Crew Accommodations, Property Management & Realty has become one of the most respected full-service short term housing companies in South Florida. The primary focus of our Front Desk Reservations Department is to serve the accommodation requirements of the Maritime Industry, Marine Schools, single families, and vacationers visiting Fort Lauderdale.

We have built a reputation as the number one choice among the Yachting industry for providing above average accommodation that is fully furnished, comfortable and affordable.


  • All our properties are conveniently situated in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, close to the airport, beaches, marinas, maritime schools and the shopping district. These range from crew houses, efficiencies and studios to one, two, three and four bedrooms luxury homes. All our properties have as standard features cable/satellite T.V., and complimentary Wi-Fi access. They are equipped with BBQs and all offer laundry facilities on site. Many offer the added benefits of having swimming pools and spas.


  • We have several shared crew houses centrally located to SE 17th Street. Crew housing operates similarly to hostels. Imagine a typical house with 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms and 1 to 2 bathrooms. Inside each bedroom you will find 2 twin/single beds with a nightstand, dresser and closet. Each bed has its own clean linens, pillows and bath towels. This is the setup you will find in all Smart Move crew houses. The common living areas - living room, dining room, outdoor space, kitchen and bathrooms are shared amongst everyone in the house.
