Enjoying the outdoors can be half the fun of owning a second home. Whether you choose to relax by the pool, warm up around the fire pit or just savor the views — or venture out to explore the slopes, beaches or trails nearby — these five retreats are a treat from the inside out.

Backyard or beach?

Just a block from Fort Lauderdale’s expansive white sand beaches, this gorgeous contemporary has a lush backyard with plunge pool and spa that make this second home feel like your own tropical mini resort.

Year-round adventures

With all the outdoor adventures on offer near Lake Tahoe, you may have trouble choosing: Skiing and other snow sports in the winter; fishing, hiking and biking trail access in the warmer months. And anytime? Relaxing and stargazing from your rooftop deck.

Choices, choices

So much, so close! This Pacaso backs to a developed trail system for miles of adventure, but is just a short drive from city perks and the slopes of Deer Valley and Park City. And after a day of fun, the fire pit and hot tub await, along with stunning views.

Just beachy

You can’t get much closer to the beach than this beauty just steps from San Diego Bay. In the evening, cozy up around the rooftop fire pit, or enjoy breathtaking sunset and water views from one of three elegantly furnished decks.
