Beach Escape

Jump to last reply

Is it too late in the season to still be able to find a beach rental for a summer escape? The good news is we can really go anywhere in the country and dates are flexible. We're open to states beyond the five we tagged, but we thought that was a start.

We prefer to travel late July, but can go any time and would like to stay for a week. Either coast is fine, but would like a quiet, less commercial, off-the-beaten-path kind of feel. We don't want big touristy, lots of kids' attractions etc. We are two girl-friends looking to escape our lives. :-) One wants a retreat from life as busy mom and one wants retreat from stressful job.

We'd like an ocean beach, but even a large lake would suffice. We'd prefer a small house or cottage to a large condo, but a condo might be nice with a pool and ammentities. If it is a condo again...not in the land of condos and tourism. Our goal is to sit on the water's edge, read, talk, rest, walk, perhaps take in some pretty scenery or visit a boardwalk type area or quaint town. This summer we don't seek busy itineraries with all sorts of fabulous sights to see. We want to restore and rejuvinate. Any suggestions??

I know it's hard when it's so vague and open, but I greatly appreciate your reccommendations.
