Somewhere coastal and San Diego & Marina Del Ray would be top choices for me, Thomas. Our family owns a place at Pawleys Island (SC) but, I would love something on the West coast also.

For me it's never been a question of could. I just wouldn't and don't. Had occasions in my life then I had two residences and hated it. But if I could, I'd have a little condo in NYC or flat in Paris.

      My family has a vacation house in Highlands, North Carolina (Buck Creek), and a lake house in central Florida (Lake Como). 

      Next week I am going to visit my Mom and my sister in North Myrtle Beach, SC which is right on the North Carolina state line; I will do some "window shopping" for properties there.

      I lived in Arizona for several years; I have family there, also family in Utah.   I love that part of the country, it's tempting, but it's "too far from home".

Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, ePRO, CRS, RCS-D There are several places I've enjoyed living both as my primary residence and secondary residence.

However, as strictly for a secondary or "vacation" residence, my wife and I have a home in my wife's hometown in Portugal.

You can't beat the quality of the food, the location is about a mile from the beach, and it's relaxing, scenic, and historically rich.

Stanley Idaho for an actual second home. But I don't really want to own a home I have to maintain, so a place that I want to go to often as though it is my second home, that would be the Oregon coast and Spain. -Kasey
