Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio owns this modern stunner, set on Malibu’s Carbon Beach, also known as “Billionaire’s Beach.” Built in 1950, the home has been beautifully remodeled with hardwood floors, a herringbone tile kitchen backsplash and expansive walls of glass. The actor bought the home in 1998, possibly for his mother.
Cindy Crawford seems to have a new passion: house flipping. The supermodel has bought and listed two Malibu homes in two years. This picture-perfect compound offers gorgeous Pacific Ocean views and a private path to the beach.
Not only does pop superstar Celine Dion’s Florida estate feature more than 400 feet of Atlantic Ocean frontage, it’s also practically a private water park with three swimming pools, slides and a lazy river. The incredible property also boasts a tennis court, a pool house and a simulated golf range.
The property comprises the main residence and five individual pavilions, including a double four-bedroom guesthouse (for a total of eight bedrooms), a tennis house with simulated golf range leading to the tennis court, a poolhouse with a built-in grill and separate kitchen and a cozy beach house with second-floor sleeping loft and massage room.
Known as the Faye House, actress Julia Robert’s one-time Hawaii home sits on a two-acre double lot with more than 200 feet of exclusive beachfront. The 3,800-square-foot main house has seven bedrooms and four baths, and there’s a one-bedroom guesthouse, too. The Pretty Woman star bought the home in 2011 and sold it in 2016.
Actor and comedian Steve Martin once owned this incredible St. Barts beach house. Dubbed “Au Soleil,” the home features a two-tiered infinity pool with stunning 180-degree views of Baie de St. Jean. Martin sold his waterfront paradise in 2015, and it’s now available for rent.
Set on Turks and Caicos, fashion designer Donna Karan’s two-villa waterfront estate beautifully blends luxury and tranquility. Nearly every room has European walnut floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and vast views of white, sandy beaches and the turquoise Caribbean.
Donna Karan's Sanctuary: Beautiful Beaches
The setting for Karan's estate features seven acres of beachfront property on Parrot Cay of the Turks and Caicos Islands -- considered one of the most secluded and exclusive resort islands of the Caribbean. These white, powdery-sand beaches, warm turquoise waters and tropical foliage are practically unparalleled anywhere else in the world.

Perched 150 feet above a private, white sand beach, Lawedua is one of only five private estates on the island of Wakaya, Fiji. Enjoyed by the likes of Celine Dion, Jim Carrey, Michelle Pfeiffer and Bill Gates, the secluded property is only accessible via secured dock, airstrip or helipad.
If youâre capable of pulling a rabbit or in this case, a large wad of cash out of your hat, you can join the ranks of some of Hollywoodâs glitterati and sleep over at David Copperfieldâs 150-acre island on Musha Cay along the Exuma Islands, Bahamas.

Copperfield Bay consists of 11 islands 85 miles southeast of Nassau, and Musha Cay has five different housing options ranging from the 10,000-sqaure-foot main house called Highview (it’s in the center on a hill) to a modest one-bedroom thatched hut on the sand. This is Pier House, a private 2,200-square-foot house with its own helicopter pad/dock.
Named for a local bird, Bananaquit estate is located on Pasture Beach where the endangered Hawksbill turtles come to nest in May through June. Occasionally a hatchling loses its way to the sea, taking a detour to Follett’s swimming pool where someone is sure to right his or her course.
Whoever purchases Follett’s home will also receive a stake in the 5-star Jumby Bay Resort, which includes approximately 40 traditional rooms and suites as well as standalone villas. It’s sort of a millionaire’s co-op that has hosted such notables as Sir Paul McCartney, Kevin Spacey, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Hilary Swank and Jim Carrey. We hear that there’s even a sorbet butler that combs the beach with homemade treats starting around 10 a.m. every morning.
The 3,800-square-foot main house has 7 bedrooms, 4 baths and a large lanai that looks out onto the flawlessly maintained lawn. It’s quite a way from Roberts’s hometown of Smyrna, Ga. This home, which also has a one-bedroom guest house, is currently listed with a $26 million dollar price tag.
Pretty as a Picture

Simon’s home is the only case study Neutra home in existence and was built during a housing shortage. The expansive, floor-to-ceiling windows were designed to save energy costs. Simon spent significant amounts of money refurbishing and restoring the home, and built a separate 7,000-square-foot home that overlooks the Neutra.
