Oceanside Vacation

By: Craig Delman

Vacation homes are easy to find, just do a simple search on the internet and you will have your choice of thousands to pick from.

It's finding which vacation home is right for you that starts to become difficult. A surfside beach condo in Florida, a beach house on the North Carolina Outer banks, luxury beach villas in Mexico...these are all great choices but do they fit your need for the perfect "Get Away From It All" vacation home?

Luxury Beach Villas or Secluded Beach House...

In real estate you always hear location, location, location. But is location really the most important to you in your choice of vacation homes? Don't get me wrong, location does play an important part in finding your perfect get away but so do a few other factors, like amenities, price, and most importantly how your vacation is going to make you feel. After all isn't the real purpose of a vacation to help you escape from it all, relax, rejuvenate, and have some fun?

Before you can determine your destination you will need to take some time to daydream and find out what you are really looking for in your perfect get away.

Start out by visualizing yourself in the vacation home of your dreams; whether that's a quiet surfside beach condo where you are there watching the early morning surfers from the lanai or a secluded little beach house with the sound of waves crashing against the rocks.

This is your dream "Get Away From It All" vacation...dream big and while you visualize your dream vacation, take some notes.

Activities and Amenities

Gulfing, riding the surf, a fishing expedition, beachcombing, whale watching or just some quiet time enjoying your get away. Activities play an important role in a truly enjoyable vacation and will play a part in picking the location of your "Get Away From It All" vacation home.

When planning your holiday you'll want to consider access and availability of the activities you would like to take part in. If getting out on the gulf course for an early morning tee time is how you image starting your day, you're probably not dreaming of loading your clubs into the trunk of your car and driving to your location.

Instead you may be picturing a view of the course from your balcony and your opportunity to play being just steps away. Amenities are another area that you will want to take some time to consider.

When you dream of your perfect get away, maybe you're thinking Luxury Beach Villas with an on-site day spa, walls that disappear allowing the beauty of landscape outdoors to become a part of your dream retreat. Maybe you fancy fine dining, and a pampered lifestyle or maybe your dream is destination is a surfside beach condo with surf shop with expert advice right on site or a farmer's market nearby for all the fresh fruit and vegetables you can eat.
