While beachfront homes in West Vancouver might set you back some $18 million, these bargain waterfront homes in the Caribbean, U.S.A, and Central America might make you think twice about where you want to live. While they’re all priced between $1-$2 million, that’s about the same price as this ripper in East Vancouver.
Here are 9 waterfront homes around the world for the same price as a Vancouver tear-down:
Find your passport, this beachfront home in the British Virgin Islands is calling your name. You can’t ask for too much more for a house like this, especially when it’s about the same price as a decrepit abandoned home in Point Grey.
Price: $1,742,051 CAD
The house is pretty “meh”, but with that long stretch of beach, who needs a living room? Even though it’s a little dated, we’d still live here.
Price: $1,672,369 CAD
This beautifully designed and decorated home located on the cliffs of Turks and Caicos’ Peninsula Passage is only 18 feet above the water, meaning the water is only one big leap away. The view isn’t so bad either.
Price: $1,671,615 CAD
It may not be as tropical as some of our other picks, but this Cape Cod beach home has got everything you need to kick it in the sunshine. Right on private Spring Hill Beach.
Price: $1,390,854 CAD
This home, located on Puget Sound, Washington, could really use some updating in the interior – i.e. that creepy bedroom with the doll on the bed – but at face value there is nothing not to love about this oceanfront property.
Price: $1,390,854 CAD
Homes like this don’t come around too often, and this beautifully designed property on the hills of St. Lucia is no exception. Unobstructed ocean views and sunsets are the big deal-makers here, plus the stunning modern interior. A home like this in Vancouver would be well over $7 million
Price: $1,386,673 CAD
The house may not be as modern as our other St. Lucia gem but its view could not be nicer. The outdoor/indoor living space offers a truly tropical oasis overlooking what is possibly one of the most stunning vistas in the world. Try and compare this to Vancouver Special.
Price: $1,372,736 CAD
It’s not right on the beach, but this Costa Rica home does the job just fine. Located in Santa Cruz, Guanacaste, it has ocean views from almost every room and a beautiful infinity pool.
Price: $1,240,340 CAD
This classic Atlantic beachfront home located in Surf City, North Carolina has the perfect mix of beach oasis and urban access. Can’t you just imagine long walks down that sunny pier? All for the price of this house in Burnaby.
Price: $1,183,201 CAD
