11 Vacation Homes That Will Make Kids Yell, "HOLY SHIT!" And Then Get Grounded

    Make your next family vacation beyond extraordinary.

    Online vacation rental marketplace HomeAway shared with BuzzFeed some of their most jaw dropping rentals for families — and they will have you like:

    1. For example, you could stay on your own PRIVATE ISLAND!!!

    And by private, I mean purrrrr-ivate.

    The island — which is located off the coast of Belize — has a stunning pool overlooking the ocean.

    Check out this open-air living area complete with swinging chairs your kids would love.

    There are five separate living quarters, which is perfect for big families. AND...the island comes with a staff including a full-time chef and concierge to arrange outings!

    2. Not an island person? Maybe your family would prefer this one-of-a-kind airplane treehouse!

    Located in the jungles of Costa Rica (and overlooking the Pacific Ocean), the two bedroom, two bath house was re-purposed from an actual 727 airplane.

    I mean, what kid (or kid at heart) wouldn't lose it over this place?

    This home is adjacent to Costa Verde Hotel, so you have access to four restaurants, a pool bar, housekeeping, and concierge/tour services.

    3. If you've got a kid who dreams of becoming a firefighter, you'll want to stay at this converted, historic firehouse in New Orleans. 🚒

    Check out this living room with those authentic red fire doors!

    The bedrooms — there are seven of them, btw — will take you back in time. Also of note: The firehouse is located next to the world-famous French Quarter, and is within walking distance of great eateries and tourist attractions.

    4. You could also have a sweet escape at this incredible, sweets-themed mansion!

    Located near Orlando, Florida, this 8,200 square foot estate was called "...more magical than Walt Disney World itself," by Travel & Leisure Magazine.

    There's a bedroom dedicated to M&Ms...

    And another sweet room featuring bunk beds and a room-wide ball pit!

    Check out this arcade-quality game room! There's also a karaoke night club with disco lighting, laser tag, a sauna, and an indoor carnival games booth!

    5. This unique home looks like it came straight out of The Hobbit.

    Located in the Black Hills of South Dakota, this place makes something as simple as a front door utterly unforgettable.

    Nothing to see here, just a totally unextraordinary living room, certainly not one your kids will remember for the rest of their lives.

    The views from the property are pretty amazing too.

    6. In Mason, Texas, your family can enjoy this spectacular river ranch resort which comes with its own awesome water slide.

    This pool/waterslide is far from the only thing to do — there’s also a lighted tennis court, fitness center, full-court basketball, game room, and hot tub.

    And like they say on infomercials…BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! Like an actual “lazy river,” wildlife to see, trails for biking and hiking, and more.

    7. Want to stay somewhere really different? Spend a few days on this boat in gorgeous Arizona!

    The houseboat has a large living space and dining area (which makes it great for large families), plus central heating and air conditioning.

    8. This castle-inspired home on the coast of Washington is like something out of a fairy tale.

    Inside, your kids will feel like they’ve been transported to a magical world of kings and queens.

    But outside is fun too — especially this giant lawn.

    Also cool? This half a mile of private waterfront beach.

    9. Train-loving kids will love it if you choo-choo-choose this restored caboose from the 1930s as your next vacation spot.

    Located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, the home isn't big — just 200 square feet — but every inch of it has been lovingly filled with train-related books, DVDs, and decorations.

    The grounds, btw, are achingly picturesque.

    10. In Tennessee, you'll find this jaw-dropping cabin featuring indoor miniature golf!

    It also has a breathtaking living room...

    And this kickass screening room with a 106" flatscreen TV!

    The view from the deck is a keeper too even if the kids will be too busy playing miniature golf to notice.

    11. Finally, back in Orlando, Florida, is this must-be-seen-to-be-believed 62 acre, 8,100 square foot estate that looks like it was built by Richie Rich!

    Superhero-themed room with a slide that dumps you out into a giant ball pit? Check.

    Stocked game room? Check.

    Star Wars-themed bedroom? Check.

    Incredible screening room? Check.

    Miniature golf? Check.

    There are even three carousels — plus a whole bunch of other stuff kids would drool over!
