It's no secret that Beach Front Vacation homes are one of the most enjoyed types of second homes. Among the reasons that so many people prefer beach front vacation homes is that the beach offers fun in the sun for the whole family. Popular beach activities include snorkeling, fishing, golfing and boating.
A vacation home, also known as a second home, is a one unit property that can be occupied for some portion of the year or that someone else allows you to occupy. A timeshare, on the other hand, is ownership of a resort condominium or unit for one, two, three weeks or longer that is shared by others. These two terms are often used interchangeably. It is common for timeshare resort properties on the beach to be referred to as beach front vacation home.
Many owners prefer their beach front vacation homes located within a reasonable distance from their primary home or residence because some resorts allow their owners "day use" of the resort amenities (pool, golf course, tennis court, etc.) all year long. For example, if you lived in Orlando, Florida and you own a beach front vacation home (or timeshare) in the Melbourne/Palm Bay area, every weekend could be an opportunity for you and your family to go to the beach to enjoy the sun and the sand. According to ARDA, vacation ownership is one of the fastest growing vacation options enjoyed by today's leisure travelers.
