    See below for 5 spectacular vacation homes on the market

    1. Vineyard Villa in the Hills of Napa


    1075 Shadybrook Ln, Napa, CA 94558

    Ever think about a place where the only question you have to answer is “red or white”? If the answer is yes and you have a cool $7,450,000 on hand to make it happen then this 3,900 square foot beauty located on a vineyard could be yours! 

    Review from @carolinehayes: "This house in Mountain View, California sold for almost $1M over list price. I guess they removed the photos since it has gotten a bunch of attention. Craziness out in Cali."

    > Is there anything missing from this Napa Valley Estate?



    2. Star-Crossed Desert Oasis in Palm Springs


    2432 Southridge Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92264

    The former getaway of American icons Steve McQueen and Bob Hope, this modern enclave hit the market for $6,800,000 in early June. With an open patio, pool, gorgeous views this is a dream home as long as you can tolerate 100 plus degree days throughout the summer months.

    Review from @bthawl3: "This is a tough one. I get the '50's Hollywood getaway vibe, but the pool is so close to the street that the lack of privacy wouldn't suit a celebrity.

    > Has time passed this house by?



    3. Resort-Like Property on the Shore of Lake Tahoe


    6790 N Lake Blvd, Tahoe Vista, CA 96148

    How crazy is it to ask $9,100,000 for a 3 bedroom home? Well, the answer depends on if the home looks out across Lake Tahoe and has a beach and boat docks or not. Either way, there’s not a ton of room to host all your family and friends for a weekend on the lake. 

    Review snippet from @jamieb: "Surprised it's only 3 bedrooms for 3,000+ sqft but I bet you could find ways to squeeze in some more bedrooms. If only I had $9M... what an incredible home!"

    > Is this home worth the steep price tag?



    4. Open-Air Beauty on the Cliffs of Maui


    936 Punakea Loop, Lahaina, HI 96761

    Potentially the most unique of the bunch, this ultra-modern Hawaiian abode located on 5 acres overlooking the Pacific features 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and of course an infinity pool. The sellers had this custom built as their dream home, is it yours?

    Review from @alex_: "Great views and great weather, wondering if they would have a lizard problem? Also, not so sure about the infinity pool being surrounded by flat grass. Seems like a pool cleaning problem waiting to happen."

    > Is this home just too weird for you?



    5. For the Rugged Type: Mountain Mega-Cabin in the Sierra Nevada


    420 Le Verne St, Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546

    At 6,763 square feet this is no sleepy cabin but rather a palace built for a nature lover with a big bank account. Located on a private drive looking out to the Sherwin Mountains this home offers unmatched privacy, but an awful lot of snow plowing to do during the winter...

    Review from @richmondgal: "I think it's been sitting on the market for a while because it's dated and overpriced. All those reds, oranges and logs get old after awhile. Time for a refresh from the 2001 decor..."

    > When will this home finally sell?
