If you'll have a car and can use that to commute to a train station then you have a lot more options and can hardly go wrong just about anywhere along that stretch. I don't know if they would go for...

How close are you hoping to be to the rail stations? Will you have a car or bicycle available, or will you largely be hoofing it from the marina to public transport?
