John, pretty slick operation and makes perfect sense!  

The mother lode would be redoing Jim Rockford's beat up trailer on the beach from The Rockford Files as it was right on the beach!  ^_~

If it is close to an ocean which has a salt water issue rusting a lot of things, it can be expensive. We are just having to replace an 8 year old AC because of it.

I tried your 'link' on two separate occasions, and it does not work for me - sorry!  In answer to your question, I think it totally depends on what beach you are talking about (in what state or on what island), and how close you want to be (right on the sand, or just with that ocean view) John DL Arendsen
