When we go to the beach, one of my favorite places is the screened-in porch just off the living room (or, sometimes, depending on the unit, the dining room) of the condo we stay in. Aside from central air conditioning, it's the only requirement I have when we book our accommodations. The condo has an open air balcony as well, but I rarely use that.
These balconies, however? These I could get comfy on.
Then again, I think that's the idea behind a cozy balcony.
