Forbes insight: Billionaires’ big vacation homes

Even if the world is enveloped in a flurry of financial turbulence, the billionaires are still going to be billionaires, and nothing is going to stop them from biting their big holiday crunch as a means to get away from their busy lives. Opening in the list for us is TV goddess Oprah Winfrey who enjoys the Caribbean heat, crystal-clear Caribbean water, and the region’s perfect palm trees from time to time, despite owning a 60-acre Maui getaway and a 42-acre estate in Montecito, California. She also visits her Antiguan coastline paradise, where her neighbors are Eric Clapton and Giorgio Armani.
