Most of the characters on HBO's "Big Little Lies" are annoyingly, impossibly rich, and half the fun of watching is to drool over the various homes. (Maybe not Jane's so much.)

Vulture has a breakdown of the different locations, pointing out that only one of homes is actually on the Monterey Peninsula, where the show is set. The other houses and shooting locations are in Malibu, Calabasas, Pasadena, and Los Angeles. (The novel is set in Australia, but writer David E. Kelley moved it to Monterey, California, in part for its proximity to Silicon Valley.)

Here's a quick rundown on a few of the houses, with more details on each at Vulture:

• The home of Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgård)

Location: Monterey Peninsula
Cost: $6 million


• The home of Renata (Laura Dern) and Gordon Klein (Jeffrey Nordling)

Location: Malibu
Cost: $12.4 million

You may recognize this home since it has already been in other movies, TV shows, and commercials, and the locations manager almost didn't even show it to the director because of that.


• The home of Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Ed Mackenzie (Adam Scott)

Location: Malibu
Cost: $14.8 million


• The home of Bonnie (Zoe Kravitz) and Nathan Carlson (James Tupper)

Location: Calabasas
Cost: $2.6 million

That Bonnie house is a favorite. Stunner.

Also, even though Monterey does have a popular wharf, the show didn't film there because of the unpredictable weather. "The actual restaurant where they sit is on a stage in Los Angeles," the locations manager reported.

Head to Vulture for more, including details on Jane's (Shailene Woodley) more modest home, the local school, and the park where Jane goes running.
