The 2021 Academy Awards are around the corner, taking place April 25. Vacasa, an international vacation rental management company, has six swoon-worthy, Oscar-inspired vacation rental homes available.
Miss Lottie, inspired by Nomadland
In Nomadland, the main character’s journey takes her across the highways of the American west. This vintage RV park in Texas Hill Country gives guests a gateway to van life with additional amenities and the chance to build rapport with fellow guests.
Grass Valley Vacation, inspired by Mank
Mank tells the story of troubled screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz racing to finish Citizen Kane. Most of it is set at a remote ranch in Victorville, and this retreat in Lake Arrowhead, an hour away from where Mank wrote in real life, is ideal for penning your own masterpiece.
Mount Holly Home, inspired by Sound of Metal
Sound of Metal explores sound through a heavy-metal drummer, Ruben, who loses his hearing. This secluded vacation home looks like the rural New England farmhouse where Ruben spent much of his time in the movie.
Dufossat Street, inspired by Soul
Pixar’s hit shows Joe chasing his dream of becoming a jazz musician. While set in New York City, this vacation home is in the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans. The historic rental puts you near Magazine Street, a streetcar ride away from jazz hot spots.
Caroline’s Cabin in the Woods, inspired by News of the World
In News of the World, a Civil War veteran who travels from town to town reading the news and bringing an orphaned child across the Texas desert. The sprawling landscape on view from this 150-year-old cabin provides a backdrop like in the movie.
Octopus Beach Den, inspired by My Octopus Teacher
This documentary followed the bond between a diver and an octopus in South Africa’s kelp forest. Located on Whidbey Island, near the giant Pacific octopus of Washington’s Puget Sound, this beachfront rental, with an octopus motif, puts you steps from the habitat of these intelligent creatures.

After driving through the arts and entertainment district of Delray Beach, I was expecting the lively and vibrant energy to follow me to my doorstep at Crane’s Beach House that evening. I was pleasantly surprised when the spirited rumble of a night downtown halted right at the front gate. As I walked the pathway to the front office for check-in, I was welcomed by a quiet rustle of the greenery and flowers that guided my walk, strung with lights and colorful, tropical décor. At check-in I was provided with a complimentary parking pass; although I would only be there for one night, I much appreciated this unexpected perk. I received my room information, including a pass code that would open my door. Keyless entry was a nice touch.

Until you visit, you may never know the extent of Buenos Aires’ cosmopolitanism. From design and architecture to technology and banking — and across all the arts — Buenos Aires truly has a global feel that rivals Paris, New York and Tokyo. While it’s on the water, Buenos Aires is not a beach destination like Rio but rather a port city — hence locals are called Porteños and have a zest for life and want to share it with all who visit.
