The most stylish Airbnbs in Laguna Beach, CA

Historic Laguna Beach Home

Built in 1913, this Laguna Beach house is right across the street from Heisler Park. The large house can accommodate at least eight guests, with four bedrooms, two of which are located in a separate house at the back, with lots of privacy. Newly renovated, this charming house has plenty of character with a brick fireplace, ocean views and – my favourite – a porch and balcony for enjoying those sunny days and nights.

What the guests say: “We felt like we were at home with plenty of space and everything you need to be comfortable. The great room was a nice family gathering place to visit and watch the beautiful sunsets.

Heisler Park is across the street and is a spectacular park and beach where you can snorkel, scuba dive or take paddle board lessons. We walked or took the trolley to many local Laguna Beach entries and art galleries. Doug and Amy were fabulous hosts from check in to check out.”

Beach Villa Apartment

This cozy villa has a cute patio that looks onto the beach. Surrounded by tropical plants, the patio is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a drink on balmy summer evenings.

What the guests say: “My husband and I had a great time at this gorgeous, clean, spacious and perfectly located Airbnb! We loved the decor, comfortable bed, full kitchen, and cute seating areas to enjoy our evening wine. We loved the peaceful walk to town and the beach (less than 10 minutes!) and the friendly neighborhood. Sandy was an amazing host and we are so happy to have found this gem!”

Another hotel for the list. This 1950’s classic motor lodge has been converted into a boutique style hotel.

The room is beautifully decorated with lush green wall accents, plush furnishings, pampering products and a small kitchenette.

What the guests say: “Great location, super cute and clean space, and so many thoughtful amenities! Such a perfect space for a family, with lots of storage. Chris even brought us a coloring book and colored pencils for the kids when we checked in. We loved the ample fridge and freezer space and the complimentary beach gear.

The walk across the street and through the Montage property isn’t too far (10 mins or less)- but worth it because the beach is stunningly beautiful, and the prettiest we’ve been to in Laguna. The pool at the hotel was also great and the perfect temperature. Overall such a great stay, we will be back! Thanks!”
