Sharing a round-up of the best Airbnbs in Los Angeles! It’s a cool city that you have to visit at least once. Don’t be intimidated by how packed LA is—it’s the second-most populous city in the United States—but it has a lot going for it as a destination.
Obviously, there’s Hollywood. See the Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theatre, shop on Rodeo Drive, and check out Venice Beach. There’s tons of stuff to do here, and there’s also an incredible restaurant scene.
If you happen to be looking to stay in LA, sure, there are hotels and guesthouses to think about, but in my opinion, the best way to “do” LA is to go with an Airbnb.
An Airbnb gives you the luxury of feeling like a local in LA. It allows you to explore local neighborhoods and live in houses that really reflect the city.
And to give you some travel inspo, here are some of my favorite Airbnbs in Los Angeles ever!
This top Airbnb in LA is located on a tree-lined street in the heart of the historic Venice Walk Streets area, and is a historic property to match!
Recently redesigned, the interiors of this place are beautifully high-end. It's super clean and comes with a full kitchen too. Garden-lovers will totally freak out at the grassy front lawn and chilled backyard area. It's a dream!
Not your run of the mill Airbnb apartment, this place is a fairytale cottage in the Franklin Hills area.
It's got a great location, and amenities like a fully equipped kitchen and some awesome outdoor space, too.
The ideal space for a family or a group of friends, mornings here are all about making yourself a coffee using the coffee maker and then heading out to the backyard for a chill. Because yes, they have hammocks here!
Want more views? Then you should consider this Hollywood property!
This place is within walking distance of the famous Beverly Hills Hotel, which is a great spot for lunch. Or make your way to Rodeo Drive for shopping. West Hollywood will be right on your doorstep if you choose to stay here.
Perfect for a couple, this top Airbnb in LA comes complete with a balcony where you can soak up those views, as well as a shared pool.
When you're looking for vacation rentals in LA, it does not get much better than this cool Silver Lake loft! Silver Lake is such a cool area and reminds me a lot of the Mission in SF. You will also have the benefit of the Echo Park area.
Complete with a fully equipped kitchen, cute bathroom, and huge living room, this place is set in a renovated warehouse. It has its own cinema room and a whole load of quirky, vintage furnishings for that extra cool factor.
Get together a bunch of your friends and go hang out in LA for a weekend in this entire apartment. There are thoughtful touches throughout, from the record player to board games.
Those are my top picks for Airbnbs in Los Angeles—I think they’re all pretty awesome! From lofts to cottages and villas to mansions, there is just about something to suit everyone (and their budget) on my list of top LA Airbnbs.
