The private balcony at Towards The Sun, Plum Guide home in Florida, USA

Click to book Towards The Sun now: from £737 per night Located in the aptly named Sunny Isles Beach, this comfortable apartment is the perfect place to return to after whiling away the hours on the city’s white sand beaches – just two-minutes stroll from your front door. The interior feels just like home, with its dark wood furniture and squashy, aged leather sofa. Begin your mornings on the private balcony and enjoy the unspoiled views of Florida’s cityscapes while you sip your coffee. Afterwards, get those endorphins flowing in the communal gym or take it easy and sit out by the pool. When lunchtime rolls around, you’ll be tripping over the delectable bars and restaurants right on your doorstep. Pore over ocean views from seaside haunts before spilling out onto the beach. In the evening, head back to your welcoming apartment for mojitos on the communal roof terrace and a rejuvenating night’s sleep in the big, comfy beds. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Click to book Pine House now: from £2066 per night Step out onto the balcony with a morning coffee and take in a view of the Rocky Mountains. This home’s design makes the most of its picturesque location, with enormous windows and a semi-shaded terrace perfect for watching the sun go down over the slopes. We love the pairing of a traditional exterior with a more modern interior – enjoy cooking at the island in the bright light-wood kitchen in the mornings, or socialising around a meal at the dining table under the chandelier. In the summertime, walk to Boulder Creek Path for hiking and biking trails amongst the area’s stunning scenery. Alternatively, wander downtown for excellent bars, restaurants and coffee shops. Come winter, you’ll want to explore the nearby ski resorts and make the most of Colorado's famous powder before cosying up in front of the fire and switching on the smart TV. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms

Click to book The Captain's Boathouse now: from £648 per night Though you’re on the sunny California shores of Laguna Beach, there’s a Nantucket vibe to this beach house. Wooden bannisters on balconies, a clapboard facade and a white-wood porch out back give it that New England boathouse feel, alongside nautical touches like painted life rings and scenes of the sea on the walls. After a day at the beach (Treasure Island Cove is a five-minute walk), head back to your peaceful garden for a drink in the shade, or head up to the balcony at sunset and watch the sky and sea streak pink and purple. Perhaps fire up the grill for a fresh seafood feast under the porch. Inside, you'll find a wet bar in the lounge if you fancy a cocktail by the fire. Your host owns a furnishing company, and it shows in the designer sofas and Hungarian goose down comforters on sprawling beds. We particularly love the fresh flowers in the kitchen and the superb views of the ocean from every room. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms

Starburst Mirror, Los Angeles, USA

The private balcony at Starburst Mirror, Plum Guide home in Los Angeles, USA

Click to book Starburst Mirror now: from £110 per night Between the bustling streets of West Hollywood and palms swaying gently in the breeze, this apartment offers a spot of serenity just a five-minute drive from Beverly Hills. Your white, modern, open-plan living space feels so relaxing, yet accents of glamour won't let you forget how close you are to Tinseltown – we love the eye-catching, starburst feature mirror and purple velvet cushions. And from the window of your dining area, as well as your private balcony, the views of the Hills and Downtown are another vivid reminder of your surroundings. Take a chilled Californian wine out to the balcony one evening for a sunset over Sunset. Unless of course you’d rather make the most of communal facilities such as an outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, gym, and roof terrace? While this is a perfect base to explore cafés, boutiques, and dining spots of WoHo on foot, there's more to see if you cruise around by car. Ten minutes away, marvel at exhibits of the LA County Museum of Art and other galleries on Museum Row. Or just over twenty minutes north, spend the day taking in the natural beauty of Griffith Park – home to the Hollywood sign – before heading back down into the metropolis for dinner and drinks. Sleeps up to 3 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Click to book Worth the While now: from £693 per night If you're in possession of a boat, this Floridian villa has a rather unique feature that might just appeal to you. Along the private deck facing Lake Worth Lagoon, there's a lift that can move vessels weighing up to 13,000 pounds so you can explore the body of water as well as the Atlantic Ocean beyond that. If you're not too much of a seafarer, don't fret — there's plenty more to win you over at this remarkable address. As well as a heated swimming pool, guests can keep themselves entertained on the air hockey table in the garage that can be turned into a ping pong table, or just relax up on the balcony. There are bicycles to borrow for exploring the local area and you can get to Lantana Municipal Beach with just fifteen minutes' pedalling. Come the evening time, there's both a Weber barbecue and a fire pit to gather the group together around. Sleeps up to 16 | 5 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
