Vacation like a celebrity in a real star's home for a week

Vacation like a celebrity and actually sleep in the same bed that they do by taking your next vacation in the homes owned by these stars, as some of the biggest names have offered their vacation homes up for rent.

If you think living like a celebrity in a sprawling seaside or country home with a view only afforded to the very rich, sounds grand but impossible, think again. You can actuallyvacation in a home owned by some of the biggest stars and enjoy all the amenities that the celebrities enjoy in their vacation digs. Some of these celebrity rentals even come complete with a full staff to wait on you.

How about living like a rock star in Keith Richards vacation home or a movie star at the seaside vacation home of Bruce Willis? What about relaxing in the beautiful airy home of Christie Brinkley or enjoying the never ending ocean view at the home of fashion designer Donna Karan, which are locations that scream elite and luxury? These celebrity homes are all for rent at Parrot Cay, Turks & Caicos.

The four celebrity vacation homes are available for the public to rent, when their owners are not taking up occupancy on a vacation of course. All of these homes offer a 360 degree ocean view, private infinity pools and Balinese furniture to die for. This doesn’t come cheap, it costs $24,000 a night, but for a group of friends all chipping in, this could be and extravagant, but affordable vacation for a long weekend.

Frank Sinatra designed his own home in Palm Springs and everything about it says “old blue eyes” was here, including the recording studio that he had built and used to record many of his great hits. It is now available for vacationers to rent. This desert oasis has four bedrooms and seven baths in this very modern home that was way ahead of its time when it was built in the middle of the last century. Everything from a gourmet kitchen to the modern amenities is offered at this vacation spot.

If the country and open space is more your idea of a vacation, Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch in Carmel, California is the place you want to go. Eastwood purchased the land years back to save it from developers and he has turned it into a ranch resort. This spot offers cabins and even reverted barns for their guests to stay in. The different accommodations offered range from cottages to lofts and barns to cabins.

Clint’s Mission Ranch awards you with a taste of the old west, but offers most every modern amenity available today. The Restaurant at Mission Ranch is second to none when it comes to its American flare cuisine, with a piano bar and jazz brunch offered to the patrons.

Eric Clapton’s vacation home in Stanfast Point, Antigua is available to rent, which is nestled on 45 acres on the ocean. This rental property comes with four buildings that will sleep 14 people in luxuries only available to rock icons until now. With this property, you get a full staff including a chef to prepare all your dinners.

Clapton’s place is reasonable when taken in the scope of other celebrity homes, as it costs $50,000 for the week. This split between 14 people is a vacation possibility for many hard working baby boomers and their friends.

If an entire private island is your idea of a vacation spot, you could live like Sir Richard Branson on Necker Island, British Virgin Islands. This globe trotting billionaire rents his Island home when he is away, it is a great place to plan a wedding. At $56,000 a night, it is a get away like no other.
