Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The architecture is a little too interesting to really make the Florida comparison work.  Not nearly enough stucco (obligatory Groucho Marx reference goes here).

But, yeah, I can certainly see the California/Florida comparison, especially in the landscaping.  The "Queenslander" style vbo shows could come from any older, upper-class area on the beach in the South.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Yes, the beaches and even just the flatlands in Louisiana, where it's similar to an Acadian style house, principally because of the wrap-around balconies. Said balconies are wonderful to have, though many must be screened in somehow to avoid the plagues of mosquitos.  But in good weather with a breeze, there's nothing so wonderful as watching the sunset from a balcony.
