Are you a little bit curious as to where the A-listers go on vacation?
When actors, singers and designers aren’t working, they really know how to relax in style by heading off to their privately owned mansions of course! Here are 5 incredible celebrity vacation homes belonging to the likes of Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, George Clooney, Oscar de La Renta and Donna Karan.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon – BAHAMAS
Although this glamourous pair have now sold this stunning Bahamas pad for close to $5.5million, it is definitely worth a mention as one of the best celeb vacation spots. Located on the private island of Windamere, surrounded by other plush privately owned luxurious properties, this 4000sq ft, three bedroomed property boasts three bathrooms and a beach front outdoor pool. Named ‘Sea Lily’, the property was bought by the pair in 2008, and the clientele’s standard mode of transport is arrival by private jet. Jealous? Us? Maybe a smidge….!
Taylor Swift – RHODE ISLAND
Our favourite country girl has splashed $17.5million cash on this Rhode Island pad, adding to her existing portfolio of expensive properties. This 11000sq ft property is located on the waterfront in Westerly, and boasts 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and over five acres of land. Taylor has even stamped some of her most famous song lyrics on a ‘no trespassing’ sign right outside! She also has guards on patrol to protect her from a reoccurrence of the stalker incident back in May.
Oscar de la Renta – PUNTA CANA
Having a snoop inside the Dominican Republic vacation pad of my favourite designer, Oscar de la Renta, is certainly time well spent. This pad is to die for, located in Punta Cana. Open air living spaces, marble floors and stunning columns are among some of the gorgeous features, as well as an infinity pool overlooking the blue Caribbean waters. The ever dapper Oscar was born and raised in the Dom Rep, so this home away from home lives up to its name in more ways than one. The property was designed by world renowned architect Ernesto Buch, who is known for creating many other neighbouring masterpieces on the island.
George Clooney – LAKE COMO
Mr Clooney’s residence in Lake Como in Italy is authentic Italian chic at its finest. Home to where some of Ocean’s Twelve was filmed, this waterfront villa has been the centre of attention for paparazzi for many years, all desperate to clinch a snap of George on vacay. The marble foyer and fresco ceilings have sparked rumours that the place will be going up for sale due to the lack of privacy, though the world’s sexiest actor has denied the claims.
Donna Karan – PARROT CAY
Donna Karan’s Parrot Cay house is not only beautiful, but a touching sentiment to her late husband Stephen, who passed away from lung cancer. The pair spent their final Christmas together there, where he bought her property as a gift, renewed their vows, and enjoyed the breath taking views together one final time. Three years later their daughter Gabby married her husband on the resort. This stunning home on the Turks and Caicos islands was designed by Donna herself, fulfilling Stephen’s wishes that she build a resort for the family on the land. The resort comprises of two luxurious four bedroom houses, with both master bedrooms benefiting from 360 degree waterfront views, and aptly named, The Sanctuary.
