I use the term 'affordable' in the title loosely. For some affordable means $100,000 while for others it means $1,000,000.  

Longboat Key Beach

Wouldn't it be nice to live in a place where you can walk out on the balcony and relax to the sounds of the ocean and the gentle breezes off the Gulf of Mexico?
