Rent From an A-Lister: Curbed's Celebrity Landlords Map

View as Map

Fine architecture, beautiful design, and prime locations are all well and good, but some renters aren't satisfied without a celebrity endorsement. If your head must rest where a famous head has rested before, this is your rental guide. Be sure to bring a thick wallet, however, as these paradises don't come cheap. Want Pierce Brosnan's Malibu beach house for the month of July? That'll be $250K, please. Billionaire Richard Branson's private Caribbean island (above) for a week? Try $27K per couple. These and eight more celebrity-owned rentals are all on the map.

23736 Malibu Colony Rd, Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
Malibu, CA 90265

Leo put this stunning beach house on the rental market last year for $75K per month, for longer leases, and a whopping $150K for short term stints. It seems he's tired of dealing with the hassle of leasing, however, and recently listed the seven-bedroom contemporary for $23M.

2. Kate Winslet

532 W 22nd St
New York, NY 10011

Actress Kate Winslet once happily made her home in West Chelsea with Skyfall director Sam Mendes, but after she and Mendes had their own falling out, Winslet couldn't bear to live there any longer. The four-bedroom penthouse, previously listed for $30K, is now asking $25K per month.

3. Bret Easton Ellis

114 E 13th St
New York, NY 10003

The Brat Pack author Bret Easton Ellis—he of American Psycho fame—keeps a loft in the East Village, in the same building where Tom Cruise is rumored to own a massive combination. Ellis' bare-bones pad was most recently listed in September for $4,700 per month.

4. Pierce Brosnan

Malibu, CA 90265

Malibu's favorite former Bond, Pierce Brosnan, has been living in town for years, but only recently constructed his dream house, a sprawling waterfront mansion on Broad Beach that somehow manages to qualify as "environmentally friendly." It sure is worth a lot of green, however, as Brosnan has been asking $250K per month.

5. Mick Jagger

Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger escapes cold northern winters on the Caribbean island of Mustique, an exclusive enclave pioneered by British royalty. His villa, dubbed Stargroves, rents for up to $19K per week.

6. Bruce Willis

Action star Bruce Willis isn't shy about the fact that he owns a villa at the Parrot Cay resort, in the Turks & Caicos. That's because his star power might cause someone to rent the place from the resort for the jaw-dropping price of $20,873 per night.

7. Christie Brinkley

Model and actress Christie Brinkley also has a home at Parrot Cay, this one known as The Lucky House. It's smaller than Willis', but also cheaper, at $8,100 per night.

8. Keith Richards

Not to be left out of the Parrot Cay fun is the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards. He owns Rocky Point, a villa next door to Brinkley's that rents for $6,700 per night.

9. Richard Branson

One of the most famous private islands in the world, Necker Island was developed as a personal paradise for Virgin chief Richard Branson. The Brit billionaire's fantasy vacationland recently lost its main house to fire, but not to worry, rental reservations are still being accepted.

One of his tracts is home to the Vermejo Park Ranch, a 591,000-acre tract which regularly hosts paying guests at prices from $650 per night.
