We’re headed to oceanfront villas in Maui, where surf lessons and barbecues are on offer; an eco-friendly lodge in Costa Rica, where zip-line tours in a dense tropical rainforest can be paired with trips to the shore; and a mid-century Santa Monica stunner, just a few blocks from waterfront Ocean Avenue.
