A lot of us dream about living on the coast. But which one? One of the most important things to consider before purchasing a beach house, second home or remote hideaway is to determine your “coastal calling”. Are you a sandy dune dweller? A nature lover and observer? Or someone seeking a private oasis away from it all? We’ve come up with an option for everyone.
