Summer is coming to a close, but there’s still plenty of time for a beachside vacation. We’ve found some amazing oceanview condos and seaside escapes that we’d love to visit for their stellar design alone! After a long day soaking up the sun and sipping fancy drinks, these are the kind of beach houses we’d want to come home to.
1. Beach Chic
A 1976 Encinitas House Goes From Dated To Divine, luxe magazine
This beach house from the California Coast doesn’t go over the top with beachy elements. The light wood and white color scheme along with surfer pics on the walls is just enough.
2. Ocean Views
We really love this beachfront house because the location is integral to the design. From a row of floor-to-ceiling windows that run the length of the house to the mix of natural and industrial décor, the entire home is designed to work with the environment.
3. Elevated Oceanfront
Bethany Beach Residence, J.D. Ireland
This Bethany Beach home brings the warm sands inside using creamy beige tones. Understated beachy touches like fish theme pillows, wicker sun room furniture and flowy curtains really complete the oceanfront feel.
4. Water, Water Everywhere
Everything In This Gorgeous Beach House Is Waterproof, House Beautiful
Good interior design incorporates more than just looks. Maintenance in this summer home is easy and breezy thanks to tons of waterproof touches like PaperStone counters and ultrasuede furniture. Just plop right down in your bathing suit!
5. Beach Home Away from Home
Not every traveler is lucky enough to have their own personal beach house for summer vacation. Chances are that if you’re taking a trip, you might find yourself in a beach resort – and these ones are some of the best beach hotels out there according to Condé Nast.
