California is known for its spectacular juxtaposing landscapes, from coastal beaches to towering mountains, and arid deserts. To give you a slice of the California experience, we share 6 Airbnbs (@airbnb) we love across the state.
This Modern Guesthouse (Los Angeles, CA):Located in Venice Beach, this two-bedroom guesthouse was blueprinted by a famous architect. In fact, Architectural Digest included it in their recent article about Los Angeles’ best Airbnbs. Expect floor-to-ceiling windows, designer furniture, and modish artwork within the interior. Another perk: proximity to local beaches and Abbot Kinney’s shops & restaurants. This Treehouse with an Ocean View (Aptos, CA):Just outside of Santa Cruz, California, is Aptos, a quiet secluded neighborhood shrouded in a forestry landscape. Here, a peaceful treehouse with an ocean view hoists into foliage. Inside, mid-century furniture, natural materials such as wood and stone, floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as Japanese screen doors collectively contribute to an overall sanctuary-style feel. This Airstream Eco Retreat in Malibu’s Scenic Hills (Malibu, CA):This dream space stands above the clouds, where it offers a 12-acre backyard, outdoor deck and cinema, Pacific Ocean-facing swing, and in-nature hot tub. The Airstream’s three-framed glass panels house a studio-style setting with two queen beds. This Remote Desert Dream (Pioneertown, CA):Touted by Dwell as one of the ‘Best Homes in America,’ this Pioneertown, California structure is designed to lessen travelers’ footprint — it’s entirely powered by solar panels for energy and hot water. Blueprint-wise, the open floor plan is encased in 360-degree glass floor-to-ceiling windows that provide expansive views of the surrounding boulders and desert. This Retro Home (@dazey_desert_house) (Palm Springs, CA):Originally designed by William Krisel, this Palm Springs home catches the eye with various splashes of color. Expect desert foliage in the front yard and a signature butterfly roof inside, two, among many other delights within the home, brought to life by Interior Designer Dazey Den (@dazeyden).
