I just responded to your inquiry about pools in Merrick. Yes, on the south shore, there are many pools and beaches available to you all over the place. Is that the deciding factor you are looking for, to find a home?
What other features are you looking for?
I can help you with the towns ammenities. You tell me what type of house you are looking for. Put the two together and you can find what you want for without stress. I attached a link for a free listingbook account. That will give you an idea what houses are available in the areas you mentioned.
Talk to you soon,
Call, text or email me
