Dreaming of Retiring or Living in a Beach House in San Diego

Dreaming of Retiring or Living in a Beach House in San Diego? Why not?

Some of you have been working hard for many years to achieve this reality. Some are ready now and capable to make this happen – it’s just a matter of finding the right place.

If you are aspiring to buy a beach house in San Diego, the San Diego beach lifestyle with its lovely weather is worth the goal, effort, and money.

At least, we think so.

Whenever we return and our plane lands from travel to other beautiful locations, we always feel immense gratitude and a renewed appreciation to call the San Diego area our home.

Like most San Diegans who choose to own a house a few miles inland vs. rent due to the issue of housing affordability in coastal San Diego, we would not mind living every inch closer to the beach.

Now, if there is no question of affordability, we’d pay the ‘ridiculous’ San Diego oceanfront home prices because you know…they are not building any more land in San Diego. And we’re not getting any younger.
