Since the summer heat wave started here in the Northeast a few weeks back, all I can think about are cool ocean breezes and crashing waves. But prime oceanfront rentals come with a hefty price tag, right? Not necessarily. Gen Y renters on a budget in both the Los Angeles and Miami vicinities don’t have to rule them out completely. There are a number of condos and apartments with gorgeous views renting for right around our $1500/month price point. Take a look:
