It's not uncommon for major celebrities to own more than one home. When they're not touring the country with their music or walking the red carpet at Hollywood premieres, they need a place to kick back, right? Some celebrities find it hard to relax when they're constantly getting swamped by paparazzi and rabid fans, so they buy another residence where they can R&R in privacy.
For some celebrities, it's a luxurious home in the Hamptons. For others, it's a beach house in the Bahamas. And for others, they buy an entire island they can call their home away from home. Unsurprisingly, the homes that celebrities use as vacation homes are quite pricey, and the amenities that come included are enough to make anyone jealous.
Some stars rent out their vacation homes when they're not using them. After all, there's no point in their extra properties just sitting there with no one inside. Of course, though, you have to have a lot of money if you want to rent one by the month. Here are Taylor Swift's seaside mansion and 15 other stunning celebrity vacation homes you wish you had.
16 Taylor Swift—Watch Hill, Rhode Island
According to reports, Taylor Swift brought this seaside mansion for $17.75 million, all in cash. It's located in Watch Hill in southeastern Rhode Island, an upscale coastal village that several wealthy old-money families have called homes for generations. Ford Motor founder Henry Ford lived there during his lifetime.
Swift travels to her mansion frequently, hosting numerous parties with her squad.
She enjoyed a sleepover with Ed Sheeran there and entertained high-profile guests such as Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Tom Hiddleston at a Fourth of July party. The residence has eight bedrooms, eight fireplaces, a pool, stunning views of Little Narragansett Bay, and a seven-mile stretch of a sandy beach nearby.
15 Johnny Depp—Plan De La Tour, France
Johnny Depp doesn't own a house. He owns a small village—a hameau, if you want to get technical. The 37-acre compound is nestled in the small quiet community of Plan De La Tour in southern France. The property is comprised of a 19th-century hameau and more than a dozen structures that add up to more than 10,000 square feet. The main house has five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, and the entire compound contains 15 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
On the site is a deconsecrated church that now functions as a guesthouse, an art studio, a swimming pool, and a private restaurant the actor named Café Marcheline.
Depp brought the residence in 2015 and spent the next 15 years restoring and updating the number of stone-built structures located across the property. In early 2015, he listed the property on the market for $25 million but raised the price later that year to $63 million.
14 Rihanna—Pacific Palisades, California
Technically, Rihanna already sold this mansion in late December of 2016. She bought it in 2012 but sold it two years later because her intense touring schedule was preventing her from spending any time in it. The mansion can be found in the coastal L.A. community of the Pacific Palisades, one of the world's most expensive communities.
The one-acre mansion has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and a two-story foyer with a skylight.
There's also a 6,000-square-foot garden with a bar and rooftop sundeck, multiple outdoor lounges, a full wet bar, a covered barbecue station, a swimming pool with an adjoining spa and waterfall, an outdoor kitchen, an elevated putting green, and many more luxurious features.
13 Jennifer Lawrence—New York City
If you ever wanted to call celebrities such as Harry Styles, Justin Timberlake, and Blake Lively your neighbors, then the apartments at 443 Greenwich Street would be the perfect fit for you. 443 Greenwich Street is a celeb hotspot because of its "paparazzi-proof amenities," such as a below-grade parking and a private interior courtyard.
Other amenities include an indoor swimming pool, a 5,000-square-foot landscaped roof terrace, and a fitness center.
Jennifer Lawrence's home features a 35-foot living/dining room, four large north-facing windows, a recessed gas fireplace, wide-plank white oak flooring, a restaurant-grade kitchen with custom cabinetry, a laundry room, and a powder room. The actress listed the apartment on the rental market last year for $30,000 a month but later dropped the price down to $27,000.
12 Richard Branson—Necker Island
If a private home is what you're after, you can't get more private than a home on a private island. Necker Island is 74 acres big and can be found in the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Sea. Richard Branson purchased the place for $180,000 and has since called it "the best financial move" he ever made. And he's not the only one who's looked to Necker Island as a getaway spot. Numerous celebrities have vacationed here, including Princess Diana, Mariah Carey, and Kate Moss. Even former President Barack Obama vacationed there briefly after leaving office.
Individual rooms can be rented out for $4,280 a night, and the whole island can be rented out for $78,000 a day.
The island comes with two private beaches, two infinity pools, a hot tub that can fit 30 people, a swim-up bar, a 1,500-square-foot master suite with sweeping views of the Caribbean, and so much more.
11 Steven Spielberg—East Hampton, New York
Steven Spielberg is renowned for making visually-stunning films, and he also he pays the same attention to detail when it comes to his multiple vacation homes. He hired famous architect Charles Gwathmey to handle the design of his East Hampton residence. The property, known as Quelle Farm, sits on the edge of Georgica Pond on a six-acre field.
The $25 million home was designed to create comfort and security and capture the vibe of summer bungalows and converted farms in the surrounding area.
Spielberg also had Gwathmey design a stately modern guesthouse that would provide plenty of room for family and friends. The guesthouse includes features such as a kitchen with mahogany cabinetry and stone countertops and a sky-lit gallery visible from all the bedrooms.
10 Jennifer Lopez—Water Mill, New York
Water Mill, New York is the 14th most expensive zip code in the country, so it's probably no surprise that Jennifer Lopez brought a mansion there for $10 million. Under the previous owners, the residence was rented out as a summer home and the price to rent the place from Memorial Day to Labor Day was $425,000.
The 3-acre beach house is privately situated in a cul-de-sac and consists of 8 bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms.
Amenities include a pool house, a theater, a sauna, an outdoor shower, and a steam room. While the property may only have a guest house, there's more than enough room on the grounds for a guesthouse and a tennis court to be built.
9 Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie—Correns, France
Correns, France is known for being the first site for growing organic wine in France. It's also known as the location of Brangelina's enormous villa. The 17th-century estate has been used as a family retreat since 2008 and was the site of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's wedding in 2014. The couple purchased the home for $80 million, and their neighbors at the time of the purchase included other celebrities such as Johnny Depp and David and Victoria Beckham.
The 1,200-acre, 35-bedroom estate holds multiple structures from the 17th century, including remains of a Romanesque chapel that the couple were wed in.
In addition to that, you can also find vast hillsides, olive groves, pine forests, several fountains, a vineyard, a private lake, and a moat.
8 Leonardo DiCaprio—Palm Springs, California
Most celebrities who rent out their vacation homes to others rent them by the month. Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the few who rents his vacation home by the night for $3,750. His estate, known as 432 Hermosa, is located in the desert resort city of Palm Springs, famed for its mid-century modern architecture and design features.
The 7,022-square-foot residence sits on 1.3 acres and was picked up by DiCaprio for $5.3 million.
It contains six bedrooms, seven-and-a-half bathrooms, walls made of floor-to-ceiling glass, a cocktail bar, a heated pool and spa, a sauna, and a tennis court that overlooks the mountains, which surround the property. There's even a daily maid service.
7 Donna Karan—Turks And Caicos Islands
Several Hollywood celebs have homes in the Turks and Caicos, a list that includes Bruce Willis and Keith Richards. Donna Karan is one of those celebrities. The Turks and Caicos Islands are two groups of tropical islands found in the Lucayan Archipelago of the Atlantic Ocean and northern West Indies and are known mostly for tourism.
The 10-acre compound Donna owns, dubbed "The Sanctuary," sits on Parrot Cay, a private island that functions as a five-star resort.
It has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Additionally, there's a separate kitchen, three swimming pools, a two-story yoga studio, a screened-in dining pavilion that can accommodate 20 people, and more. In 2014, Donna listed 70 percent of the estate on the market for $39 million.
6 Lenny Kravitz—Paris, France
Lenny Kravitz's mansion in Paris is undoubtedly fancy. After all, it was photographed for publication several times. The Hôtel Particulier is located in Paris' 16th arrondissement, one of the most wealthy and prestigious residential areas of France. The 16,145-square-foot four-story residence sits at the tail end of a cul-de-sac that backs up to a public park and is fully furnished with housecleaning services.
It also comes with a roomy living room complete with garden access and two additional sitting rooms, four kitchens, two laundry rooms, seven en-suite bedrooms, and an elevator that stops at all floors.
There's also a marble staircase, modern art from famed artists such as Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Walker Evans, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces from renowned designers, impressive chandeliers, a pair of large elephant tasks located on either side of the fireplace in the main salon, and more.
5 Tory Burch—Southampton, New York
Tory Burch owns one of the biggest homes in Southampton. The 15,000-square-foot home was built in 1929, which is clearly reflected in the formal Gatsby-esque style of the house's exterior. The interior, however, is a mixture of vintage and the modern, such as a black-and-white marble checkerboard entrance hall and an octagonal bronze masterpiece designed by Swiss sculptor and designer Diego Giacometti. Burch said that while the outside of the house looks formal, she wanted the inside to be warm and inviting. The estate has its own carefully-landscaped grounds and includes a swimming pool, a basketball court, a sunken tennis court, a skateboard ramp, and an outdoor pizza oven.
4 Oprah Winfrey—Maui, Hawaii
The ranch house pictured above used to be nothing more than just a little gray ranch that Oprah Winfrey thought about tearing down and redoing after she purchased the property. However, she changed her mind, and with the help of designers and architects, she turned it into the dazzling residence it is today. The 163-acre ranch is located in Hana, Hawaii at the eastern end of the island of Maui.
It's one of the most remote communities in the state. The ranch house functions as a 12-room bed-and-breakfast, and there's even a privately-owned four-mile road that leads directly to the property.
However, the road is hard to maintain, according to OW Ranch agent Hugh Starr, who says it's "very attractive to skateboards and joggers."
3 50 Cent—Farmington, Connecticut
Douglas Elliman Real Estate described 50 Cent's Farmington Mansion as the epitome of "opulence and luxury." And they're not wrong. The 17-acre estate is located in Farmington, Connecticut and is one of the few homes in the state that has approved helicopter landing, providing easy and convenient access to New York City.
The living space consists of 19 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool and hot tub, an indoor court, a full gym, a home theater, a green screen room, several game rooms, a nightclub, and a conference room.
Also, on the grounds is a pool, a pond, a basketball court, guesthouses, gardens, and even a grotto. The mansion has been on the market for the last eight years and was originally priced at $18.5 million. However, it has since dropped down to $8.5 million. It can be rented out for $100,000 a month.
2 George Clooney—Laglio, Italy
If you've seen Ocean's Twelve, then you may remember seeing this 18th-century villa in the movie. George Clooney filmed some of the movie's scenes here. Villa Oleandra is located in Laglio in Lake Como, a luxurious resort area in Northern Italy's Lombardy region known for its breathtaking scenery and Renaissance architecture. Several celebrities have looked to it as a vacation spot, including Robert de Niro and Madonna.
Clooney fell in love with the villa at first sight while cruising through the Alps on his motorcycle and bought it for $10 million.
After Clooney brought the luxury home, it didn't take long for paparazzi and fans to descend upon it for a glimpse at the actor, forcing the City Council to forbid anyone from trespassing into the immediate vicinity of the villa's entrance so Clooney could keep his privacy.
1 David Copperfield—Musha Cay
David Copperfield didn't just buy a vacation home, he brought an entire island for himself. Musha Cay, as well as the surrounding islands known as the Islands of Copperfield Bay, are in the southern Bahamas just 85 miles southeast of Nassau. It's considered one of the most secluded and exclusive areas in the world.
There are 40 different beaches on 11 private islands, which give guests access to crystal-blue turquoise waters and a coral reef. The islands house five individual villas designed in a tropical style that can house 24 guests.
Each villa has its own private beach. Other features include a private airstrip, a beachfront gym, a giant outdoor movie theater, a wine cellar, and more. The total rate for 24 guests is $57,000 a night.
