  • Hands down, the 2 bedroom. We have 2 adults, a toddler and 4 cats, we wouldn't all fit in a one bedroom. Plus, an hour isn't that long of a drive. :)

  • Definitely the 2 bedroom...I need my space and with the way I drive, it'll only be 30 minutes :)

  • Depends on who was living with me.

  • 2 bedroom house, no question! Well unless the apartment was nice and the house was in a drug infested neighborhood.

  • Depends on my stage of life. If I were a single, workaholic, I might choose the beach since it would provide easy entertainment.

    If I were married with children, I would choose the other for two reasons: (1) I would be afraid of my boys getting out of the house accidentally and wandering to the water and (2) I would want the extra space and money.

  • with 2 active kids I consider a yard a REQUIREMENT. Like indoor plumbing. Yard we'd use daily. Beach not so much... unless it had swings and stuff too

  • i would rather drive and pay less but yet it would suck with gas prices to drive that hour each time u wanted to go to the beach

  • Since it is just the two of us and our furry kids ... I'll take the one bedroom within walking distance and I HATE small places!!

  • 1150 for a one bedroom apartment? that would be raping my wallet. ill take the better deal, the 2 bedroom with a yard for 1000. hands down!

  • dependling on your life styile. If its just you or you and your husband you dont need much space. SOme 1 bedroom apartments are big and if you love the beach thats a way to go. But one houre is not that far away and having lots of space is good especially with kids.
    I would have to see both places to decide
