We stay at the NC beach almost once a year, and from checking out the off season rates at some places, it looks to be cheaper to rent there than at home in NC. Some places were $500/month if you rent for 3 winter months. That was at Topsail Island/Surf City and for what was I assume a basic house (ie possibly dated kitchen and bathroom(s)). Sound side house that's probably 1-2 rows from the oceanfront (narrow island). Myrtle beach might be similar.
Retired in 2013 at age 33. Keeping busy reading, blogging, relaxing, gaming, and enjoying the outdoors with my wife and 3 kids (8, 13, and 15).
