Most homeowners are pretty happy with an outdoor space that's big enough to fit a decent size pool, space for a BBQ and just a little greenery. But there are others out there who will not settle for anything other than an extreme backyard. We're talking areas that resemble a resort more than any home we've ever seen. Seriously, when was the last time you visited someone with an infinity pool or bocce court? The answer is most likely never. That's why we rounded up ten examples that are seriously too good to be true.

Do you have to walk a mile in order to get to that water slide?

A movie screen in the gazebo? Totally normal.

Floating steps? Don't mind if we do.

We've never even stayed at a hotel that looked this nice.

Who's up for a game of bocce?

Life's not fair.

Because having water access isn't enough, these homeowners needed to add that pool.

Just a simple little patio...

Imagine living here for just a second.

Some more spaces to be envious of...
