4.0 out of 5 stars Enticing Photos and Great Articles July 24, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Coastal Living is a professionally- made magazine with lots of enticing photographs, personal stories, and general advice on making the most out of life on the coast. The emphasis in Coastal Living is on waterfront property and the events and entertainment that often take place in cities with a large coastal area.

Much of what you read in Coastal Living pertains to better- known waterfront areas in the United States. Such popular destinations as Boston, Miami, New York, Long Island, California, Cape Cod, South Padre Island, and other tourist- oriented places comprise a large portion of the featured articles in this magazine. Many of these places (like New York City) have very expensive waterfront property than can often be next to impossible to buy. But these areas also include lots of tourist activities, which is why they are so frequently highlighted in this magazine.

Besides the well- known destinations, Coastal Living also includes a good number of featured articles on lesser- known places. Many of these lack the fast- pace and the extensive nightlife of the more popular destinations, but they also offer better deals on property and an opportunity to get away from the chaos of the larger cities. Such places as the Delaware coast, Michigan, Ohio's Lake Erie coast, and others are often very quaint and interesting. Also, they offer property that is far more reasonable in price and is often within the affordability range for many buyers.

Much of the properties you see and read about in Coastal Living are quite expensive. But remember- the majority of the homes are on major coastlines, so you can't expect to find them for selling for a low cost. These are high- demand, low supply properties and they vary greatly in price, but they are all expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A luxury getaway magazine December 7, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
If you're looking mostly for affordable coastal decorating ideas, this is probably not the magazine for you. Five years ago (or more), the magazine content was different - it had fun, affordable coastal decorating ideas. If you're subscribing based on familiarity with the magazine from a while back, you may be disappointed. I gave it 5 stars because it does deliver on what it says it has - luxury coastal getaways/vacation/resort areas. I ended up canceling my subscription after about 8 issues, but it was no fault of theirs; just my incorrect assumption that the content hadn't changed.

I gave this publication 3 stars as it has become pretty mediocre in my book. Not bad, just mediocre, with a decline in quality both of the physical appearance and in the content. Sometimes it feels like an infomercial... Would love to see more coastal home makeovers and creative ideas, and leave out the beauty products and fashions. I get plenty of those magazines, and look for a more beachy approach in this mag.

2.0 out of 5 stars Going Downhill Fast May 23, 2011
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
I have been a subscriber to Coastal Living for about a year now and I have to say the quality of the magazine has really gone downhill. I got the magazine because it's eye candy. I wanted to see beautiful beach houses and learn about exotic destinations. Now, it's a knock-off of Southern Living and Better Homes and Garden. They seem to have a new editor (maybe the 3rd one this year) and even the layout has changed. They keep featuring these tacky cottages and reporting on the most boring things (200 things to do with salmon, diners in Florida). I will not be renewing my subscription and will try my luck with another magazine.

Every issue has at least one article of interest. But Coastal Living definitely needs a fact checker... A recent issue referred to the Everglades as an old Hemingway haunt (that was the Florida Keys and Cuba editors!) and recommended high heels for going out in Cartagena (don't they know the streets are uneven colonial cobblestone??).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not As Great As I Hoped October 18, 2013
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal|Verified Purchase
I got this because I love the coastal home decor look. After almost a year of getting this magazine, it's getting boring. There is only so much white, blue, green, navy decorating ideas and starfish adorned decorative pillows. I feel like I'm looking at the same thing over and over. Also not all of the pages are focused on coastal decor. There is plenty of "Living" in the mag with a variety on coastal fashion, beauty products, lifestyle products, eating/recipes, travel destination reviews, and features on celebrity beach homes that takes up 1/3 to 1/2 of the mag sometimes, which I do not enjoy. It's an OK mag. Definitely not one I relish getting every month. Some months are better than others though. Still deciding if I want to keep the subscription after my one year is up.

This magazine is a yearly gift from a relative, who is able to get it at a greatly reduced rate. It is filled with beautiful photos and yes, lots of ads.
I enjoy browsing through this each month but the content seems to be geared for the ADD generation - everything seems to be in brief snippets of information or in photo captions - very little substantive content.
I also wish there were more features on coastal areas that are NOT typical beach destinations, like coastal New England, the Pacific Northwest or the Canadian Maritimes. Not everyone who likes living by the water dreams of California or Florida (or Charleston, S.C..... you get the idea).
But overall a decent magazine with beautiful photography for mindless reading....
