Forest Beach specializes in affordable ocean oriented properties, including oceanfront, ocean view and ocean side locations. The most economical rentals are in neighborhoods
defined as easy walk to the ocean, meaning within 1 to 3 blocks of the Atlantic beach. Our on-line booking system categorizes properties by proximity to the beach. For example,
Oceanfront means the property looks at the ocean and sits as close to the beach as building codes allow. Look at properties in Ocean One, Shorewood, and Ocean Club for oceanfront condos.
Ocean view means the property sits back, but the ocean is clearly visible. Look for properties at Sea Crest and Shorewood for oceanview condos.
Ocean side means the ocean is not visible, but no road separates the property from the beach. Ocean One, Ocean Club, Beach Villas and Shorewood offer oceanside condos with convenient access to the beach. These condos are
less expensive compared to oceanfront or oceanview.
Easy Walk means within 1 to 3 blocks of the beach and a local road must be crossed. These properties provide a great option for the cost-conscious vacationer.
