Eager for a beachside vacation this summer? You’re not alone. And while it can be pricey to head to the Hamptons or Malibu, there are plenty of budget-friendly coastal spots to visit. Thankfully, new research by Filter King, an air filter delivery service, determined the cheapest (and most expensive!) cities for renting beach house Airbnbs across the country, so you can enjoy the seaside at your preferred price in no time.

Various factors were considered when determining the best beach house rentals, including property prices, Airbnb rates, air quality, rainfall, and average temperature (you can easily sort the 71 top destinations by each factor on Filter King’s website). As far as Airbnb rates go, Port Arthur, Texas has the cheapest average rate at around $95 per night followed by Eureka, California, at $138, and Melbourne, Florida, at $126. Other top affordable beach hotspots include Wilmington, North Carolina, at $142 and Long Beach, California, at $149.

If you’re looking to splurge, the most expensive beach destination for Airbnb rentals is, of course, Nantucket, Massachusetts, with an average daily rate of $808. Montauk, New York, follows at $670 along with Malibu, California, at $651; Captiva Island, Florida, at $519; and Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, at $492.
