We get it, getting a cute Airbnb in the city is becoming rather difficult with the passing days… Plus SF’s stricter laws on Airbnb and it’s hosts.
But we don’t want to leave you hanging, so we’ve bookmarked these 5 cute Airbnb’s for some North and South Bay exploration, photo-op’ing, and maybe even a romantic getaway or two. All priced within the $150 to $175 range—these are pretty good deals for private quarters.
This cute Japanese-style home is perfect for those who want to fly to the East and not pay a roundtrip ticket from hell. This serene and private Japanese inspired retreat is just a 3 minute walk to town, the beach and trails. Wear your yukata (kimono) to the inside/outside bathhouse to experience a Japanese soaking tub. Sleep to the sound of waves, wake to bird songs. // Stinson Beach, $175 per night.
A private hut amongst the trees, this Redwood cabin instantly plugs you into the sounds and sight of pure nature. This studio in the California coastal redwoods comes with a full bathroom and bonus room in main house with private entrance. But imagine stunning views every morning amongst the fog with the faint sound of the wind. // Woodside, $140 per night.
Gorgy for your Instagram feed and even better to wake up to on a sunny day, this loft in Petaluma is heaven. Just one block from downtown Petaluma’s Kentucky Street. Surprisingly quiet, this is a perfect getaway spot for (obvi) couples. Besides exploring historic Petaluma, you can use this as your home-base for wine and brewery tours as well as coastal day trips. Happy drinking. // Petaluma, $150 per night.
For those who do best with Airstreams, this ones for you. Made for two people or just yourself, a calming moment to just reintroduce yourself to yourself is always needed. Especially in a modern, brightly space. Mainly surrounding by lush greenery, you’ll get a chance to take in a deep breath, enjoy the record player, and listen to the sound of the wind rustle through the grass. // Pescadero, $172 per night.
Only 30 minutes outside of San Francisco, this cottage is made for your 3 closest friends, a bottle of wine, and a platter of cheeses, meat, and bread. Designed with the intent of the “tiny house movement”, you’re only a hop, skip, and a jump away from Half Moon Bay territory. And within walking blocks of some of Half Moon Bay’s coolest eats, we consider this spot to be magical. // Half Moon Bay, $150 per night.
