South Florida: Fort Lauderdale
Star in a modern-day fairytale with a stay at Modern Castle, an extravagant holiday home situated in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Complete with eight bedrooms, a heated pool, a waterfront patio and a two-story greenhouse, this sophisticated estate has plenty of room for all the dukes and duchesses in your family. Much like any castle, this home features its very own hidden gems, discreetly designed for your pleasure—and your privacy. These include a poker table, a kayak launch, an elevator, a pool table and a wine cellar that holds over 500 bottles of vino. Every room is drenched in decadent detail, whether that be in the bathrooms bathed in jewels or the gold-leaf-coffered ceilings. If watching a game from the indoor sports bar isn’t your definition of relaxation, take a swim in the pool, a soak in the hot tub or lounge by the living walls for some botanical therapy.

Relax like royals inside Cinderella’s Castle, a towering vacation rental situated just five miles from the Disney World theme parks in the posh Reunion community. Embellished with grand arches and Renaissance-style balconies (perfect perches for morning coffee or an evening toast), this 6,900-square-foot home is equal parts opulence and ease. The sprawling property includes eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, with plenty of socializing space in between. Each room is adorned with glossy marble finishes, crystal chandeliers and custom floors. The outdoor patio was built for entertaining with two flat-screen televisions, a master grill setup and an abundance of plush seating, both under the shade and in the sun. Swim laps in the private pool, slide down the rock-wall water slide or find a seat at the swim-up bar and end the day with a Kir Royale. For a dialed-down vibe, enjoy the indoors, and screen your favorite flick for family and friends at the home theater. Whether you want a cozy castle or an adventurous abode, this mansion offers both a comfortable stay and a sunny week of play.
