10 Start slideshow

Whether or not you’re a captain of industry, few pleasures in life are as uncomplicated as clicking through impossibly luxe (and ridiculously expensive) real estate listings.
This week, we’re planning to take full advantage of the wine coolers, built-in sound system and “service bathroom” at this Brazillian mansion for an ultimate poolside soiree.
We’re also wondering what it’s like to vacation like funnyman Steve Martin, whose newly-listed Caribbean mansion features a geometric infinity pool, a Balinese gazebo and cheery lime-colored flourishes throughout. Clearly, it pays to be the class clown.
What new listings have you drooling this week? Tell us in the comments below!
