With the cold weather coming on strong in much of the nation, you might be feeling those wintertime blues pretty intensely. You’ve had enough cold weather for the year – it’s time to escape to sunshine. With these five luxury real estate getaways, you can do just that.
1 of 5 | Jupiter Island Oceanfront
This massive property acts as the perfect replacement for an expensive resort stay - once you purchase it, you will have your very own vacationland to enjoy anytime. If you, like many people, like spending the spring and summer in the Northeast or other parts of the nation with rough winters but crave a homey, serene piece of property for when snow is on the ground, look no further than this immaculate estate. Bahamian-inspired designs and a sprawling layout that has plenty of entertainment outside - such as a built-in grill, tennis court, golf range simulator, three pools and the ocean - makes this a stellar wintertime getaway.

2 of 5 | Padaro Beachfront Escape
Nothing says escape quite like California, and this gorgeous, understated 7,200-square-foot home will make you feel like the rest of the whole world is silent and peaceful. Nestled on the sleepy, clement shores of Carpinteria in Santa Barbara County, you can trade your snow boots in for sandals and a surf board. Do not let the relatively small size of the home fool you, though; there is a whole lot to keep you busy, including lush gardens, 105 feet of beachfront, and a position atop a knoll for a stellar combination of privacy and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding land.

3 of 5 | Modern Malibu Beachfront
The Pacific Coast Highway is among the most legendary roads in America, and remains as stunning in winter as it is in summer. Malibu is a great place to be when the weather is dreadful elsewhere, especially when you have a home that comes with 60 feet of beachfront and a home that offers 270 degree views of the Pacific Ocean. If you are a passionate cook, this is an especially perfect property for you, as it includes a 10-foot Calcutta-wrapped island, top-of-the-line appliances and an exquisite view of the breathtaking shores. After working up a sweat in winter, head inside for a spacious steam shower.

4 of 5 | Texas Oasis
Houston is one of the best up-and-coming cities in the country, and part of the reason is its wide array of beautiful luxury real estate, gorgeous weather and thriving arts community. Check out this 4,700-square-foot waterfront estate that combines all of the best parts of mid-century architecture, modern design and advanced technology. You will have two terraces to relax on, one downstairs and the other upstairs, the latter accessible from your divine master bedroom. This is a one-of-a-kind property, and the perfect oasis for those trying to escape the winter.

5 of 5 | Palm Beach Cozy Retreat
This two-bedroom, Palm Beach home is as tastefully designed as it is warm and cozy. It is worth pointing out, though, that the 2,300-square-foot size does not feel so small when you have 9-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the ocean. Your master suite has its own view of the ocean, while custom lighting and motorized window treatments can be found throughout the house. The gourmet kitchen is perfect for all styles of cooking, and your guests will be delighted in their privately situated room. Because this property includes a 24/7 gatehouse, doormen and the amenities of a resort, it is perfect for those who want somewhere to go when the weather turns cold up north.
