The vacation home is fast becoming the new boardroom for business leaders, reports the Wall Street Journal. In a recent article entitled, “Homes That Invite Shop Talk”, the Journal studied several high-powered execs who have turned to the relaxed setting of their vacation homes to generate business ideas and conduct deals.

Take Martin Puris, an advertising veteran who, over a hot summer weekend entertaining a fellow businessman at his 12-acre property in the Hamptons, forged an agreement while poolside.

"This vacation home is where I have some of my best creative thoughts,'' the 74-year-old executive explained. "This peaceful setting allows my brain to be uncluttered and focused.'' Puris was also inspired to launch his consulting company, Puris & Partners, while reflecting in his home’s study.

For those who lead a busy lifestyle like Puris, it makes sense to have a space that invites relaxation as well as work, to have a retreat that can entertain close friends as well as important business contacts. Ingenuity can hit you at any moment, so why not be in a beautiful paradise when it happens?

The Oceanfront Casitas and Ocean Golf Villas at Terranea present the perfect opportunity to harmonize the fabric of work and of vacation.
