How often do you wish you could stay on at your holiday destination? Many people dream of ...a waterfront home and a laid-back lifestyle on the beach or beside the lake. This book tells the fascinating stories of a range of people who have made it happen. The lifestyles are enviable, but it takes planning, tough decisions and hard graft to get there.
