Here, we unveil five celebrity homes, past or present, that you can actually rent. From historic bungalows to modern luxe villas, dive into a world of star-studded stays:
5. Naomi Osaka
Situated in North Bay Village, Villa Nautica is a sanctuary that Osaka, the Japanese tennis champion, opted for during her final run at the Miami Open.

Hendrix chose a quaint one-bedroom cottage in Makawao, Maui, as his retreat while filming ‘Rainbow Bridge’ in 1970.
