Private Getaways: Take A Peek into the Most Lavish Celebrity-Owned Vacation Houses

Fancy may be an understatement.

It’s not easy to live in the spotlight while avoiding the paparazzi, so you can’t blame celebrities from purchasing multi-million dollar vacation homes to just to get away from the public eye. And from simple mansions to secluded islands, these celebrity-owned vacation homes are what dreams are made of. Here are some of the most expensive properties which you can take inspiration from, or — like most of us — simply admire.

Oprah Winfrey’s The Promised Land

The media mogul has a long list of multi-million properties under her belt, and one of the most notable is her Montecito, California estate which she called “The Promised Land.” This 42-acre property features breathtaking mountain and ocean views surrounded by expansive lush gardens, plus a man-made lake, tea house, barn and even a huge guesthouse (with a pool, of course). It’s totally a paradise! It’s a really ideal vacation place to get away and entertain fellow big shots with the six bedrooms, 10 fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, two theaters, a wine cellar and a barn. No wonder Oprah calls it “home.”
