All the answers thus far are about the agent rather than about you and your needs. First of all there are many homes in the Tampa Bay Area that you can purchase for under $600,000. Second depending how much of a drive time you want to consider to the beaches is key. All the areas mentioned so far are a good 30 to 45 minutes away to the Gull Beaches. So the best thing to do is select an agent that can talk with you and listen to your specific needs and then provide you with a list of properties that actually meet your needs. I would be very happy to be that agent. I work in the three counties here in the immediate Tampa Bay Areal

I wish you all the best in your search and please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you need any additional information...no strings attached. I'm happy to help.
I specialize in the Westchase area.
You might want to consider Waterchase. It has higher fees than Westchase (because of the higher HOA & CDD Tax) but if you take advantage of the amenities it may be a better value. Also if the High School is important, Waterchase is assigned to Sickels High versus Alonso for Westchase. Sickles scores higher than Alonso.
If you want to minimize fees, then I would recommend Westchase. In your price range, Harbor Links or The Greens would be the best choice.
If you would like more space (acre) and actually the ability to ride horses in your neighborhood, Twin Branch Acres would be a good option.
Here are 12 you may want to consider:
