Book Your Next Summer Trip at One of These Unique California Airbnb Rentals

Airbnb is quickly taking over the hotel industry and becoming one of the trendiest ways to book your stay. You no longer need to pay $350+ to be cramped into a tiny hotel room.

We’ve compiled a list of 17 of the hottest California Airbnbs Rentals up and down the coast. Starting up north in Muir Beach and going as far down south as San Diego. All of these listings are under $300 per night (some require a minimum night stay.) There’s a variety of options to choose from--seaside cottages, apartments, bungalows and guesthouses that are either on the beach with oceanfront views or very close to the beach.

Most are kid friendly and offer an array of amenities like a fully stocked kitchen, a gas grill for BBQing, a fireplace to relax by, a private deck to watch the sunset and bikes to ride into town. Other must haves include things like a complimentary breakfast, wine, snacks and sundries. Board games, Netflix, guest passes, surfboards, children's toys and free parking are usually included.

We’ve made sure that each of the listings we’ve included have something special. Whether it be the decor, the history, the amenities or the view, all of these listings have great reviews from other guests, with plenty to do in the area.
