Whether you have the bankroll to rent one of these beauties or you can barely afford a handkerchief to wipe down your drool, we all love having a flick through beautiful, luxury homes.
From an exclusive villa in Monaco to your own private retreat in the Caribbean, we explore 5 of the most expensive villas in the world, the cheapest of which starts at $20,000/night:
Kicking off our list of most expensive villas in the world is the luxurious Cove Spring House in Barbados. Such is the exclusivity of this property, the villa is only available to rent for a few weeks every year while the owner is away from the island.
With a large oceanfront patio, private beach, free form pool, jacuzzi, media room, spa, and fitness center, it’s no surprise the owner only leaves the villa vacant for a few weeks per year!
This is the location if you’re looking for sophisticated luxury, meticulous service and staff, exclusive privacy and ultimate relaxation under the Caribbean sun.
Found on a secluded stretch of beach amidst a tranquil landscaped garden, you’ll struggle to find a beachfront Caribbean villa that airs the same amount of privacy and elegance.
Decorated by none other than the renowned New York interior designer Scott Salvator, this magnificent villa combines a serene atmosphere with a sense of proper indulgence. Everything has been considered for your complete comfort and entertainment, including a freshwater heated infinity pool overlooking the crystal blue sea.
Cerulean Villa is Anguilla’s best kept secret and has to be seen to be believed!
Estate Pavo Real is a luxury villa part of the Ranchos Estate, a private, gated community of exquisite custom design beachfront residences, averaging over an acre in size.
Amongst sprawling gardens of lush tropical greenery and flora under soaring palapas, Estate Pavo Real houses splendor of Pacific Mexican architecture at its very best.
Alongside the villa’s abundance of amenities, guests also benefit from the Resident Membership providing access to the Pacifico Golf Course, tennis club and Residents’ Beach Club.
Hidden amongst dense foliage within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve lies the family-friendly, nature-inspired resort of Soneva Fushi.
This private reserve is a nine-bedroom property including a master bedroom with pool, open-air bathtub and shower, and sunken sala accessible by bridge and water slide. The playful deserted-island mansion comes complete with the palm-frond roofs, woven ropes and tree branch banisters.
Everything about this magical resort feels otherworldly, from the crystal-clear turquoise water and dolphins at sunset to evening dinners in your sunken dining area.
Last, but certainly not least, we have the staggeringly beautiful Villa Grace in Monaco. Monaco itself is one of the most premium locations so it should come as no surprise that one of the most expensive villas in the world is found in the city.
Perched on its own parkland on the hills of the cap of Monte Carlo, the substantial Villa Grace has panoramic views over the Principality of Monaco, the Bay of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and the Mediterranean sea.
Built-in the Italian style at the start of the 19th century, Villa Grace is decorated with an elegant touch and classic furnishings that Al Pacino would be proud of. This is one of the most prestigious villas on the French Riviera and was home to acclaimed fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld for ten years.
