Calling all East Coast People
I would love to hear some input from the East Coast people!

DH and I are playing with the idea of (in the next 5-7 years) buying a house on the East Coast. Our dream is to split our retirement time between California where we currently live and Spain. Recently we started thinking of adding in a third location on the east coast. Hereís what we envision on the east coast. We want a home near the beach/coast and near/on a golf course. We would most likely rent it out as a vacation rental when weíre not using it.

Anyone have any great locations that we can start researching?

Thank you!

Iím not sure what specific states youíre looking at but:
Tybee Island, GA
Montauk, NY
Amelia Island, FL
Savannah, GA
Charleston, SC (Daniel Island, Isle of Palms, or Mt. Pleasant are beautiful cities in the Charleston area)
Marthaís Vineyard, MA

First I love your retirement plans. East Coast is a large swath of land with huge varieties obviously. Williansburg VA is near the coast, lots of golf and an easy rental income.
Further north, Nantucket Island but I think itís beyond expensive but Massachusetts coastal areas are lovely and would fit whet youíre looking for.
Maine would also fit your bill. My brother has a home in Bar Harbor which is easily rented when theyíre not using it. Bath/Phippsburg/Sebasco also are nice.

Love your retirement plans!
On the East Coast we have rented homes for vacation in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, Tybee Island, Georgia, and Carolina Beach, North Carolina! We loved them all!

East Coast
Hilton Head, SC has lots of golf courses and is on the ocean.

OP here- Our initial thoughts were NC or SC. But I wanted to put it out there to see other fabulous places you all recommend.

Chesapeake Bay
To add to your list--also consider Maryland's Eastern Shore--around Ocean City, Rehobeth, or even around Lewes, Delaware.

Daytona Beach Shores
New Smyrna Beach
Ormond Beach
Ponce Inlet
Cocoa Beach
St. Augustine Beach

All of the above are on the NE or central coast of FL

I also love the Chesapeake Bay area!
