The Onion House, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

The Hawaii home of the McCormick Spice family, the Onion House looks like, well, the name says it all. It has walls of screen and stained glass allowing light in, and at night the translucent roof panels glow like twin Japanese lanterns. Made up of two arched structures, it's surrounded by a pool, fishponds and gardens and perched on a lava rock terrace overlooking the Kona Coast. The 2,500-square-foot home, with three bedrooms and two baths, was hand-built by the architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg.

Price: $295-$360 per night. Additional cleaning fee of $350. Minimum five-night stay. Sleeps 6.
