New, 2 comments

We're hitting up Malibu, Miami Beach, the Jersey Shore, and more

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various cities across the U.S. Is one person's studio another's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $6,500/month. And theme? Beach homes! (Because summer can't come soon enough.)

↑ Malibu, CA (1 bed, 1 bath)—This dreamy 1,207-square-foot top-floor rental keeps the beach close but not too close. Yes, the sand is just in the backyard, but there's also a nice private deck, perfect for serving as buffer of sorts and for outdoor entertaining.

↑ Kailua, HI (4 beds, 3 baths)—Located in the corner of Hawaii where the Obamas vacation to every year, this 2,500-square-foot house comes with private access to the famous Kailua Beach, plus a pool. The breezy, remodeled home has beautiful exposed beams throughout.

↑ Miami Beach, FL (2 beds, 2.5 baths)—Offering a more luxe take on the "beach home," this 1,565-square-foot apartment has sleek interiors plus glass walls and a wide balcony for taking in the view. Still, the beach is just steps away.

↑ Brigantine, NJ (2 beds, 2 baths)—This 900-square-foot unit overlooks Brigantine Beach, one of the lesser known beaches on the Jersey Shore. The master bedroom has an oceanview balcony, and as the listing boasts, the apartment has "no streets to cross or dunes"... separating it from the beach, we assume.

↑ Longboat Key, FL (3 beds, 2 baths)—This 1,586-square-foot home with updated appliances and a screened-in balcony offers easy access to the relatively secluded Longboat Key beaches on Florida's Gulf Coast. The eight-unit complex also shares a pool.
