No second home in the Caribbean? No problem. Barbados’ new HOUSE AT TAMARIND COVE lets you play lord of the manor without footing the mortgage. The 31-room luxury boutique celebrates service, assigning each guest an individual “ambassador” to fulfill their every whim throughout their stay. From the lush gardens and residential-style quarters to the lack of registration desk in the lobby, the House does its best to shun hotel ho-hums. From $580. (800) 326-6899, www.eleganthotels.com
