At this three-story villa in the Hollywood Hills, you’re free to indulge in all of the above, throwing in some exercise and entertaining guests in the ground-floor media room.

The master bath is an oasis in its own right, with dual shower heads and a roomy tub in which you can soak forever.

Seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms provide ample digs for you and your bevy of vacation buddies.
