Your LIVunLtd concierge team has been diligently exploring a variety of destinations that deliver a vacation experience while you work.

Everything here and more can be arranged by us, and you can send us your request through the LIV app, our web portal, or by emailing or calling us directly. During your travels do not hesitate to reach out for remote assistance – we’re always just a phone call away.

30% off Santa Fe, New Mexico

With 350 days of sunshine, Santa Fe is perfect for those looking to spend time soaking up some good, old-fashioned Vitamin D. You’ll feel like you’re in a different time period because, at one point, Santa Fe was the northernmost outpost of the Spanish Empire in the Americas making the town rich in history.

Art lovers will be right in their element with Canyon Road to explore, a half-mile walk filled with galleries, sculpture parks, and artist studios. Santa Fe is also home to the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum.

The boutique hotel Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi is located in the heart of the historic downtown. With ultra-fast wifi and Santa Fe’s only tequila table, you’ll feel right at work-from-home. In celebration of their 30th-anniversary, they’ll apply 30% off your stay through July 31, 2021.

5 PM in NYC is Noon in Kaui, Hawaii

As if we even need to give you a list of reasons to spend time in Hawaii. Whether you’re more of a beach-by-noon type or a bucket-lister looking for a thrill, Kaui has it all. And with a 5 hour time difference, you’re able to log off at 5 PM in New York and spend the entire afternoon enjoying life before the sun even sets.

The town of Haena is a small community on Kauai’s north shore, located on one of the most picturesque stretches of coastline in all of Hawaii. When you’re not taking Zoom calls on the beachfront patio, you can take a short stroll to Tunnels beach (Makua) for some snorkeling, surfing, and perhaps a casual sunset picnic.

Just 10 minutes away from this incredible home available to rent through our partner, One Fine Stay, is Hanalei, named the hippest town in Kauai by Vogue. This slice of paradise has a tasty food truck scene, a farmers market every Sunday, and funky local shops selling vintage Hawaiian artifacts like Yellowfish Trading Co.

Sip Cocktails Poolside in Asbury Park, New Jersey

Asbury Park is to New Jersey what Williamsburg is to Brooklyn – only it has a beautiful beach! We suggest staying at The Asbury Ocean Club Hotel (set to reopen May 2021), which boasts an idyllic pool terrace with a full-service bar and breathtaking ocean views.

When the workday is done, you can enjoy live music at Langosta Lounge or the Stone Pony (re-opening this summer), which launched the careers of iconic musicians like Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen, enjoy spa treatments at the in-house spa, or go sip on creative cocktails at Reyla, a Middle Eastern-inspired restaurant.

Be Oprah’s Neighbor in Telluride, Colorado

If you’re seeking a quaint mountain town free of mass-market tourist traps, Telluride may just be the place for you. The southwestern Colorado destination combines dramatic scenery, mountain sports, and plenty of kitschy, Old West history.

There are two parts to Telluride, the ‘old town’ and Mountain Village, connected by a 13-minute gondola surrounded by 13,000 and 14,000-foot mountain peaks. Jerry Seinfeld, Tom Cruise, and Oprah Winfrey have homes in The Mountain Village area, which offers the kind of European-inspired luxury you’d expect from a ski resort town. Play neighbor with Oprah at this rental home just across the street.

The ‘old town’ part is filled with Victorian-era homes for rent, bars, amazing restaurants with outdoor seating like Cosmopolitan, boutiques, and an annual Blues & Brews Festival every September that has been the home for names like Etta James, Willie Nelson, and The Allman Brothers Band. There is no shortage of hiking trails, like Bear Creek Falls which brings you to the foot of an awe-inspiring waterfall, and for your post-hike soak head to Dunton Hot Springs, a local favorite that even the Kardashian’s love.

See Ringo Starr in Berkshires, Massachusetts

While the Berkshires isn’t a new name to us New Yorkers, the region comprising 30 towns and two cities is well worth featuring here since there is no shortage of art, scenery, eclectic hotels, and restaurants at your leisure. And it’s only 140 miles from NYC.

We cannot get over this gorgeous home, The Filomena, which is a 2-minute walk from shops and restaurants in West Stockbridge, and just minutes to Tanglewood, the iconic music venue where John Legend, Ringo Starr, and Judy Collins has concerts planned for this summer. Do not miss the incredible Woodfired sourdough pizza at Baba Louie’s and take time to explore the orchards and woodlands in the serene Tyringham Valley.
