Villa Dione – Sicily, Italy

Positioned on a quiet cliff overlooking the crystal sea, Villa Dione is perfect for ocean lovers. Its location is ideal – with water access via a private path and just 10 minute drive from the famous town of Cefalù – and makes it easy to plan day trips to nearby towns along Sicily's northern coast.

Mes Amis – Terres Basses, St. Martin

Nestled into a cliff-side in a private enclave of Terres Basses, Mes Amis affords astounding views of the ocean and surrounding coastline. To make the most of the jaw-dropping vistas, the 11-bedroom residence features many terraces and a sprawling outdoor area, which is home to two heated pools, a Jacuzzi, and plenty of lounge chairs.

Villa La Susa – St. John, USVI

Villa La Susa was initially designed as an upscale Caribbean dream house… and it succeeds at every turn. Located in the exclusive gated community of Peter Bay, this five-bedroom mansion has it all: tropical gardens, luxurious furnishings, and, of course, panoramic views of the shimmering ocean.

Villa Romeo – Amalfi Coast, Italy

Gorgeous gardens with shaded areas, large suites with private living rooms, an outdoor kitchen with a wood-burning oven – when it comes to laid-back luxurious lifestyle, nowhere compares with Villa Romeo. While the villa’s surrounded by a lemon grove, it’s also deceivingly close to the beach (just a half mile away) and offers a beautiful view of the entire Gulf of Naples.

Villa Leonda – Puglia, Italy

While Villa Leonda is a mere 10-minute drive from the Adriatic Sea, you’d never know it. The home’s positioned in seemingly endless olive groves and manicured vegetation, and perfectly marries the area’s natural beauty with modern-day amenities. Villa Leonda has plenty of incredible features – among them, a fully-equipped kitchen and a romantic al fresco dining area – but the piece de resistance is a magnificent L-shaped swimming pool.

Casa La Laguna – Los Cabos, Mexico

One of the largest vacation homes in the area, Casa La Laguna sits on a quiet, semi-private beach next to the Puerto Los Cabos Marina. The villa seamlessly blends natural beauty into its designs, integrating exquisite works of art, vibrant flowers gracing the grounds, and a luxurious bi-level pool. Connected by a 15-foot waterslide, the upper wading pool and the lower infinity-edge pool offer stunning ocean views, making them prime spots for enjoying unparalleled sunsets.
