Unfortunately for most young locals nowadays, a dream is all it will ever be.
An army of second home owners has sent property prices rocketing way above anything people born and bred in the picture-postcard seaside town could ever afford.
Over the past 12 months, the cost of property in Nefyn has nearly tripled.
And renting? Forget it. Many second home owners have taken their properties off the rental market to chase the more lucrative Airbnb customers.
An online search last week revealed just NINE properties for rent within a 10-mile radius of Nefyn.
Morgan Jones, who was born and bred in the town, told The Sun how, at the age of 30, he’s forced to live with his parents because he cannot find a property to rent.
Despite working up to 80 hours a week running his own bistro bar in nearby Pwllheli, sky-high prices prevent him from buying a house in his home town.
