My husband loves beaches. When he came to my homeland Philippines, he fell in love with the beauty of the beaches and aiming to buy one of the beach front lot where we can build our own house in facing the sea where we can also see the sun rise and set. That's our dream house together. Now that we are still searching for the best location with a reasonable price with the help of our dear friend back in PI, I am very excited as well as my husband. I am curious, What is your dream house? Did you ever dream to have a beach house? Thank you!

Oh, that sounds like such a good goal. One of my favorite memories is waking up to the sunrise while staying in Hawaii. There is nothing like living near the water, with beautiful beaches. Watching a sunrise or a sunset everyday really does something to the human soul. I wish you both well in your plans and dreams.

when i was a kid, i also dream of having a beach house where i can take long walks and swim whenever i want. but as i grow older, i know it is no longer practical since my work is in the city and there are no beaches nearby. hopefully when i grow old, i can afford to get a retirement house near the beach and hopefully i can still manage to take long walks and swim whenever i want. =)

Hi jstmarz! We live in Mexico one row back from the beach . We love our beach house! It is our dream living here . We are in a littl fishing village that is very friendly ! I go for walks on the beach first thing every morning . The ocean is most beautiful early in the morning . I hope you find the perfect place and you have a very happy life with many beautiful sunsets and sunrises !

Hi jstmarfz...I would love to see the Philippines some day. I imagine it is very beautiful there. I live on the east coast of Canada and everywhere here is not far from the beach. We have beautiful beaches of white and brown and red sand.... The ocean is my favourite place to be. We bought an oceanfront cottage years ago, with the plan of building our retirement home there. However plans have changed, and I have health issues and that location is just too far away from hospitals etc. I never thought about it when I bought it. I would however love to have an oceanfront house again. But its too expensive here now to buy beachfront property.

I also love beaches but I want to go there for vacation only. Maybe when I have enough savings I would love to have a vacation house or a retirement house near the beach. But what I would love most is the country type living, with a lot of trees around me, bermudda grass on my lawn, a pool surrounded by acasia trees, a backyard where I can do my gardening and planting hobbies. I want to built a home in this kind of place.
