See what they have to say about Smart Move

Excellent customer service. Busi is a true professional. She was a wealth of information. The check in process and checkout process is streamline which makes it so easy to book...everything is hassle free. The 1 bedroom suite was well appointed and impeccable. Wonderful experience all around. The house and common areas are clean and nicely spred out. Will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend staying here for any yacht crew looking for a crew house.

A wonderful stay with Smart Move as always. We were impressed with cleanliness of the property and how responsive the team were with any queries we had. Smart Move is always our first choice when we need Crew Accommodations in Fort Lauderdale.

Fantastic accommodation! I had a great little place just off SE 17th...perfect central location within walking distance of many amenities. Apartment was equipped with MORE than I supplies, utensils, toiletries, garbage bins, even a Tupperware container! I contacted SmartMove via their email support and received prompt, friendly replies. 10/10 will return again!

Had a wonderful week stay while completing my STCW at MPT. Staff was quick to respond to email and the apartment was very well kept and clean! Would definitely recommend to other yacht crew looking for a place to stay!

Our location into this rental was a delightful experience. Busi is wonderful to work with, the apartment was well appointed, everything worked beautifully and it was clean, clean, clean! Smart Move is a great organization to work with--professional, helpful and kind.

Perfect apartment for my time at PYT. They were helpful with any questions I had about the technology and following through with helping. Very clean and well supplied for any small household needs.

My husband, Wayne, and I have rented the same very nice apartment from Smart Move for two consecutive years, so we are well acquainted with procedures. Our 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom, 1-large flat screen TV was quite nice-fully equipped kitchen and everything needed for our stay. Last year we stayed 3 months, this year 1 month. The location at 716 SE 14th Court was perfect-17 affordable (not fast food) restaurants within walking distance. Grocery stores, pharmacies, and general shopping were also within walking distance. The neighborhood is also a great place to jog or walk. In addition, it is quiet.

Busi Alexander and the others operate a very friendly and efficient organization. It was a pleasure doing business with them, and we plan to stay with them next year.

Dear Smart Move Team

I really enjoyed my stay with Smart Move. Busi was very helpful in finding me the right type of accommodation that would suit my needs.

As I was attending courses during my stay , I was looking for accommodation that was quiet, had study facilities (desk, chair) and was close to the school I was attending. Smart Move catered to all these needs.

I had to extend my stay at Smart Move because of my studies. Busi arranged an apartment for me in no time, which was just as good, if not better than the first one. I will definitely use Smart Move again for any of my accommodation needs.

Thank you

I was impressed with the ease with which I was able to secure temporary housing with SmartMove Accommodations. Busi Alexander in particular was warm and welcoming and professional. She walked me through the many housing options they offer and worked with me to ensure I secured a place that suited me. The shared house I stayed in was clean and comfortable and ideally located. I would not hesitate to use them again. Highly recommended.

The BEST crew housing in Fort Lauderdale. I am relatively new to the industry and when I asked around about who to stay with SMART MOVE was the name that kept coming up. I contacted them and they were awesome! I have visited friends in other crew houses since and I think the my best response to what I saw in other houses would be "No comment" Give them a call or email them, trust me you won't be sorry.

I have stayed with Smart Move for over 6 months and have had the best times where I have made wonderful long life friends and at Smart Move I have received the best support from the Smart Move family. They are the best crew house and always understanding and helpful. I'm sure to have Smart Move as my place to go and will gladly recommend them!!


Smart Move has been an essential partner in Fort Lauderdale for more than 12 years. Whether providing short term accommodations for crew doing training and certification classes, or extended rentals to cover shipyard periods, I can always rely on their friendly and efficient staff to organize our housing needs while in town. Corrie and Shelley, thank you very much for all the attention and excellent service.


Take it from me, a person who has stayed at multiple crew houses that in my opinion Smart Move is one of the best if not the best.

With a friendly staff from Ivan and his cleaning crew, Jocelyn (The Aunt) and Corrie (Mom) as we like to call them are always there to help and assist you in every way they can. Even though Mom is very strict she is also understanding which is a good thing because I believe “us yachties” needs some guidance from time to time, anyway back to the point. I have stayed at Smart Move for a couple of months now and I am very happy here and would not even think of relocating. We are a family and take care of each other.

I hope I have made your choice of what crew house to choose a little bit easier.


My daughter and I have stayed almost one month in a Smart Move crewhouse and we're planing to stay even longer. The staff at Smart Move have been very helpful with everything and we are having a great time staying here. The house is very nice and here is everything we need... even nice neighbors. We'll recommend Smart Move any time."

Working in the yachting industry & coming in and out of Fort Lauderdale all the time has required me to use rental agencies quite a bit. Out of all the choices Smart Move is my favorite! They are always there when you need them with good, clean, affordable well maintained places. The staff are friendly and will bend over backwards to assist you with all your needs. Besides great houses & excellent staff, I have made some amazing friends with other guests while staying here. Smart Move has the accommodations you need when you need them & I wouldn't want to stay with anyone else!

What can be said about Smart Move? Well I think they are truly the BEST accommodation company to deal with in Fort Lauderdale. They reply to my emails really quickly and return my phone calls straight away. They are available 24/7 which is awesome! I have stayed in their shared crew houses and private apartments and I loved them all!!! Clean and affordable. One day the washing machine started to give us trouble, I called the office and spoke to Corrie who assured me she would take care of it and she did. The very next day the washing machine was working properly. Don't waste your time going anywhere else give them a call - you won't be sorry :)

I am active in the Marine industry as a chef and returning to Fort Lauderdale is great as Smart Move always has a room or apartment for me, clean, tidy kitchen makes all the difference and it is run professionally. The average crew house in Fort Lauderdale is run more like child care centers, messy and noise - Smart Move is the way forward for the professional marine individual, clean towels, clean houses, safe environment and Wi-Fi / internet that works.

This house is the best accommodation ever! Super Clean, well maintained and neighbors are friendly!

Dulce Arabejo

I stayed here while attending school at MPT, location was perfect, super quiet area, house was super comfortable. If I make the trip down again I definitely will stay here again.

Chris Fletcher

It's been great! Clean, has pretty much all you need and no problems with management or crew. Outdoor space is great, plenty of room to relax after work and kick it.

Tricia Pearce

I have stayed in other crew houses before and they don't even come close to the quality of Smart Move accommodation. Great area and close to everything exactly what I'm looking for. Good Wi-Fi and air-conditioning units make it pleasant to get all you're stuff done in the comfort of your own place.

Johan and Ally

Our company has used Smart Move for over 3 years and we have been very pleased. The apartments/houses attention to details and ease of leasing is a true blessing, for us during our busy season. Corrie, Shelley and Jocelyn always treat us fairly and I recommend them to anyone looking for a quality fully furnished house in Fort Lauderdale.

Mark M

Thank you so much for all that you guys do at Smart Move. I will never stay at any another place while in Fort Lauderdale.

Not only are your accommodations excellent, but your staff is friendly, welcoming and awesome. On more than one occasion, you and your staff have went out of your way to make sure that your guests are taken care of.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU

Benjamin F

We have worked with Smart Move for several years now. They are accommodating, affordable, and a pleasure to do business with. When our employees book with Smart Move, we are confident that they will love their new home. The customer service at Smart Move is top notch. Corrie is always very responsive and should an issue arise, (practically never happens) it is solved the same day. We highly recommend Smart Move and their friendly collection of staff!

I Sello Mokoka am proud to call Smart Move offices, my home away from home. I've spent most of my yachting days and nights residing in their crew houses and met the most amazing people from all over the world that have joined me on the same journey to discover myself and prosper in my yachting career.

I would strongly recommend any yachty to go through Smart move when looking for a home because in my experience it's definitely one of the best.


I have only had good experiences with Smart Move! Jocelyn and Corrie are just wonderful, so professional, so helpful and caring, always there when I needed them. Beautiful rooms, so comfy and secure, makes me feel right at home. In my experience, I could not be happier! I cannot emphasize enough how great they have been, thank you for all you do :)


I have used Smart Move to accommodate both crew and family in their houses. Comfortable, well kept and conveniently located close to shops and marinas. Friendly staff always available and ready to help and suit your needs. Thank you Corie and Jocelyn for a wonderful stay in Fort Lauderdale. I will recommend you.


Smart Move is the BEST crew house I have EVER stayed at! I have stayed with pretty much everyone in Fort Lauderdale but the Smart Move Crew Houses I have stayed at are awesome. They clean once a week and the front desk is so helpful, they made me feel so comfortable. I won't stay with anyone else.
