Another option is to live beachside where you would be even closer to PAFB AND the ocean!
Homeowners here love to rent to military families.

You can search my Website for FREE at http://www.SteveSellsFlorida.com here you can search for that paticular home and view photos to help you get a better idea. I have had helped several Military families in the area. Viera is a great location, Sonoma, Sunstone, Ravencliffe and Daintree will offer you much newer homes on the Newest West Side of Viera where all the shopping, schools and new Viera Hospital and Medical complex is set to open this spring!
Hope to hear from you soon!
