The ideal choice for a warm weather escape is a lock-and-leave residence that the owner can forget about at other times of the year.

These second-home choices from around the world may require you to pack a toothbrush; or perhaps not if they don’t double as a rental property. Locations and price points run the gamut. Here are some top-dollar options as well as more budget-friendly alternatives.
