Proximity to the Beaches
Poinsettia Heights also enjoys a great location close to Fort Lauderdale Blue Ribbon Beach and also less than 10 minutes away from Sebastian Beach – Fort Lauderdale’s Gay Beach.
The lure of warm weather and beautiful beaches draws many Gay aznd LGBT buyers from all across the USA and North America.
Poinsettia Heights is a walk-ability factor – that may buyers like. While parts of it have no sidewalks many of the buyers I have spoken to feel very comfortable walking in this neighborhood.
This is an important factor for Gay and LGBT buyers who have pets too!
