Treehouses in vineyards, domes you can stargaze from, outdoor soaking tubs, whimsical decor, towers in the middle of Redwoods….
Dang, California really does Airbnbs & VRBOs right. As a teenager, I never thought much of hotels. I was in the mindset that a vacation was about the place, and it didn’t’ matter where I slept. And then, we moved to California and I started traveling around more.
And then I realized that the hotel can totally be the destination, too. And thus was born my low-key obsession with finding the most whimsical, coolest Airbnb’s in California to visit in person.
I judge a cool Airbnb or VRBO listing based on the style, amenities, previous ratings/ reviews, and overall experience I think it’ll bring to my vacation. If the space is worth the drive alone, then I want to book that Airbnb. (Otherwise, I usually opt for hotels.)
These are the best Airbnbs in California for a unique vacation. These are all places I have visited in person or have read about and have on my bucket list for future trips.
