From private jets and yachts to sprawling mansions and private islands, the rich and famous sure know how to live the ultimate luxury lifestyle. Partial to the finer things in life, a vacation to the Bahamas is lacking that extra ‘va va voom’ - they want more, like their own private island more (ahem, Johnny Depp). We take a peek through the keyhole of some of the most envy-worthy celebrity vacation villas from the Dominican Republic to Italy’s Lake Como. For these uber rich elite, it’s not just about location, but amenities galore take the spotlight. Outdoor movie theaters, skateboard ramps, private yachts. You name it, they got it! We have painstakingly put together the top ten celebrity vacation villas that are absolutely jaw-dropping.
