Location: Camoflauged cliffside home in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

Price: $15,000,000

Size: 7,000 square feet

Key selling points: This isn't your typical Caribbean beach house. Tucked amid the rocky southeast bluffs of Oil Nut Bay, the roof's earth-covered plates form a paradoxically eye-catching disguise, while natural boulders and rocks create an appropriately cavernous feel, despite its embarrassment of amenities.

Location:Wave-like glass home in Malibu, California

Price: $22,000,000

Size: 3,365 square feet

Key selling points: Architect John Lautner designed this wood and concrete home to resemble waves. We'd also argue it looks like a shark fin, but in any case, this seaside home also comes with 37 feet of coveted Malibu coastline, a grassy yard, a large wooden deck, and a partially-concealed pool.
