Ilhabela, São Paulo, Brazil
This one leaves me a little speechless. Designed by architect Marcio Kogan, the house was inspired by a desire to relax in nature – complete with infinity pool. You can find it on a quarter acre “clearing in a tropical forest,” which is all I need to hear before I move in.
In case you’d like all the details: 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 1,640 square feet. The top floor of the house is enclosed by stunning bamboo panels that open to a view of the ocean, hovering over the living area and terrace below.
$4.5 million for an island paradise like this? I’d call it a steal? Maybe? Who’s in?!
