Published Date: January 17, 2023

Looking to squeeze in another vacation but can’t completely break away from work? Or maybe you just need a change of scenery from your everyday workspace? Enter the “workcation.” These five Pacaso second homes give you everything you need for a luxurious getaway, along with space to focus if you need to get a little (or a lot) of work done while you’re away from the office. 

Stylish meeting place

Carmel’s Spindrift is a split-level contemporary home that gives the feel of a secluded retreat. Surrounded by a half acre of lush landscaping and just a short distance from the rugged Central California coastline, this home features a smartly designed home office tucked away on the second floor. Add high-speed Internet and an expansive deck, and you’ve got the perfect place to fit in a few hours of work.

This Sullivan’s Island home, aptly named Coastal Treehouse, serves up soaring views alongside ample work-from-home space. At over 4,300 square feet, it’s easy to find a place to get some things done. Send the family down to the beach and settle in at the kitchen island, on the rooftop deck, or even stretch out on a poolside lounge chair while you chat with the team back at the office. Aerial view of Sullivans Island second home rooftop deck

A lightbulb moment

There’s something about working from a quiet, sunlit, top-floor bedroom that makes the ideas start flowing. Then when the work is done, you’re just steps from the beach. Indeed, Boardwalk just might be the perfect place for a Santa Cruz workcation. This bright, modern home also boasts a sliding window wall for indoor-outdoor living, chef’s kitchen and rooftop terrace with fireplace.

Endless views

Because of the sweeping Sea of Cortez views, we take no responsibility if you aren’t able to focus on work while vacationing at Casa Cortez. Located near San Jose del Cabo on the Baja Peninsula, this home features true indoor-outdoor living, a rooftop terrace and three-quarters of an acre, all to yourself. If you find you must get some work done, there’s ample space: This home comes in just under 5,000 square feet.
