Sharing an Airbnb Monterey guide! Monterey, once the capital city of Spanish (then Mexican) Alta California, is one of my favorite places for a long weekend vacation in CA.
It’s the host of art and music festivals, former industrial buildings turned coastal attractions, and a great base from which to explore the rest of the Monterey Peninsula at large, including its numerous beaches.
If you’re thinking about traveling to this California destination, there are a lot of cute, cozy, and beachy Airbnbs to choose from. If you need some inspiration, no need to worry—here’s a list of my favorites!
Airbnb Monterey: The Best Monterey Vacation Rentals
This 1930s Monterey Bay bungalow is full of charm and contemporary cool, a place where modern fixtures and fittings mingle with vintage pieces (even the retro fridge).
It's easily one of the prettiest vacation rentals out there right now. From its bright yet cozy spaces to the mid-century modern furniture and pastel color tones that decorate them, it's all super cute.
A super cute beach house, it's located near the coast, Carmel and Pebble Beach.
This property has an absolutely beautiful and charming view from the outside.
And inside, it gets better—with its wood-beamed ceilings and polished, upscale furnishings, there's a beach boho feel to this very cool Monterey Airbnb. As you might expect, there's a lot of space; there's even a bath for relaxing evening soaks.
Add in the spectacular sunset view that can be enjoyed here, and you're in for a dreamy vacation.
This private Airbnb rental in Monterey is all kinds of cute. The pastel color palette of the exterior, the warm, homey feeling of the interior decor, the combination of relaxed whites and natural wood, the cozy patio.
There's even a second-story roof terrace for cocktails and coffee, which is total house goals for just about everyone.
This luxurious mini-mansion is definitely one of the most unforgettable Airbnb rentals! It looks more like a large house but is decorated so upscale it feels like you're living in luxury, but with that being said this place is not pet-friendly.
This gorgeous home in Monterey County has everything from an outdoor spiral staircase leading from a stunning deck down to the pool so you can lounge out with a good book.
This home has stunning views of Monterey Beach throughout and is only about a mile drive to the ocean. You'll never want to leave this ocean getaway!
