I am always in favor of paying off all debt with the exception of a mortgage as quickly as possible and always starting with credit cards first.

Sounds like your debt is under control, so in my opinion, I would pay off the student loan first at 7% then look at getting rid of your second mortgage and refinancing at a lower rate. After all of that, then you could consider buying a beach house.
