Cool breezes, water access and spectacular views … these are just a few things that make seaside living so alluring. While the waterfront setting alone makes a coastal second home worth buying, these coveted features can enhance the relaxed, beach-life vibes.

Covered porch

A porch provides a calm, soothing space during all hours of the day. At Hibiscus, say aloha to warm sands and crystal-clear waters with the condo’s open-air rooms, luxurious amenities and, best of all, an ocean-facing lanai with exceptional island views.Hibiscus covered porch

Waterfront patio

A patio adds a luxurious touch to any coastal home, especially if it brings you closer to the water. This Marco Island Pacaso offers two levels of coastal living: You can  sunbathe on the waterfront patio with pool and spa, or escape to the top-floor balcony to feel the breeze and relish the views.Windmill Palms Aerial
