If you want the real deal in this Southern California town, opt for an Airbnb (not a hotel). Laguna Beach vacation rentals like this let you live like a local, and in cool properties to match!
I’ve chosen a few of my favorites to get you started.
This place is super cool. Here it's all about monochrome interiors, marble countertops, and high-end furnishings throughout. Situated in South Laguna, this ocean view property allows the sweeping vista to take center stage.
It's a contemporary vacation rental for those who want something a little bit special, complete with a private backyard—perfect for sunny afternoons enjoying long lunches. Staying here means being just a quick drive to the beach or the lively action of Downtown Laguna.
This hidden gem of a property is a perfect find for anyone who loves a touch of unique design and architecture. It's a beach cottage full of cute charm and cozy corners where you can relax and simply take in the vintage ambiance of the home.
It's within walking distance of Downtown and close to the beach, giving it the prime location. The price makes it an affordable option for a unique romantic break.
A cute, contemporary home, this place is all about open plan living and its cool design. It has sleek furnishings, neutral tones with color pops, and high ceilings for an open concept feel.
This house also has a well-stocked kitchen for an evening of food and drink in the dining area. Newport Beach is right on the doorstep (like, steps away), which is one reason why the view from this Airbnb—of palm trees and the coast—is as beautiful as its interior design.
This super cute Airbnb has an amazing location, just steps away from the beach and within easy strolling distance of restaurants and shops.

I'm loving this Laguna Beach Airbnb. It's a beautiful, well-designed home that feels secluded and super private. It's got some serious beach views going on. With a 60-foot balcony, you can wake up in the morning and sip your coffee as the waves crash onto the sand down below (there's private beach access, by the way).
Inside, it's simple, comfortable, and modern. There's not a lot you won't like about the contemporary spaces and furnishings throughout this amazing property.
With all the amenities you could ever need, plenty of space, this place is easily one of the best Laguna Beach rentals for larger groups or families. Set in a quiet neighborhood, it's just a quick drive into town and close enough to all the sights and beaches in the vicinity. Plus, I mean, look at the photos. It's epic.
One of the best things about this place is the terrace—the perfect dose of indoor-outdoor living. Read your book on the terrace with ocean views, or relax in the bath after a day at the beach.
This sophisticated townhouse is one stunning Airbnb! From the master bedroom to the living spaces, it mixes both a traditional style with a contemporary design to provide a nice space for families who want to vacay in Laguna Beach.
You'll feel right at home here. It's situated in a complex, so you'll get to use the communal pool, as well as the children's playground, park, walking trails, and spa facilities.
And if you don't want to leave your doggo behind, this property is pet friendly, too.
