Here are the coolest Airbnbs to stay at in Los Angeles!
The Silver Lake Guesthouse
The ideal modern and cool getaway space for two, this Silver Lake property makes for the perfect retreat. Light fills the loft-style interior, all thanks to the 12-foot ceiling and gorgeous wrap-around glass wall.
This new property (built in 2017), is inspired by Bauhaus and utilized solar power making it energy efficient. With views of the Hollywood Sign and the Griffith Park Observatory, this is a stunning Los Angeles gem.
Spanish-Style Designer Villa
Are you a fan of vintage stylings fused with that quintessential Spanish-inspired style? Open up the French doors and embrace all the views of the Hollywood Hills from the balcony of this gorgeous villa. Surrounded by nature, this is a dreamy oasis in Los Angeles.
Hip Downtown Loft with Serious Views
Want some of the coolest city views? Check out this modern Downtown loft—complete with a lovely rooftop tub! For those that love contemporary stylings, this space is perfect for a romantic couple’s getaway.
Make espresso in the kitchen and then kick back on the cozy couch. Enjoy the sun loungers, BBQ grills, arcade game room, or the gym.
Sun-Filled Oasis in Echo Park
Looking for the perfect place to recharge? This hillside studio that borders Elysian Park is just the place. Recently remodeled, this place is stunning with its concrete floors, walk-in shower, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Cabin in the Hills
Take a step back in time as you enter this hideaway inspired by The Doors! This cozy bohemian lounge is a true haven with stained glass windows, a mosaic, and a classic turntable—just waiting for the ’60s tunes to play.
Bright Studio with Panoramic Views
Say hello to the incredible views of this place as you lounge on the velvet, green cushions. Step out onto the patio and spend an evening on the balcony.
I’m a big fan of all the warm, wood elements to contrast the steel architecture of the studio.
Bike to the Beach from this Airstream with a Hot Tub
Is an Airstream calling your name?
This space is ideal for those that want a tranquil space that’s within biking distance to the beach. Soak in the jacuzzi surrounded by a lush tropical garden and let all your worries melt away.
Step Back in Time at this 1930s Dream
Perfect for groups of up to six, this stunning home will take you back to Hollywood’s Golden Age. Hang out under the towering cypress trees in the 1930s mosaic pool and soak up the sun.
I absolutely adore the 25-foot ceilings and the grand fireplace in the ballroom—a beautiful remnant of the era.
Stunning Spanish Villa in the Hills
With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, this charming Spanish-style home can fit up to three guests. Hang out on the patio and enjoy a glass of wine while taking in all the Spanish-inspired architecture.
Just wait until you see the beautiful rain stone shower!
Abbot Kinney Hideaway with a Patio
Want to dine alfresco and embrace the outdoors? This lovely white-walled yard under a pergola is a dream! Festooned with foliage and flowers, who wouldn’t want to dine here? Plus, after the sun goes down, you can hang around the fire pit.
Italian-Inspired Hillside Retreat
Want a taste of Italy while in Los Angeles? Take a dip in the turquoise water of this beautiful property surrounded by cypress trees. The guesthouse is perfect for honeymooners with the large, comfy bed and the spa is filled with wonderful amenities—from a fireplace to fountains!

Wow so cool!
I’m all about staying at fun Airbnbs! 🙂
It appears that airbnb has changed things and all of the links take you to the search page not the accommodation page. Did a copy/paste of the link and airbnb did a redirect on me. Thanks for looking.
Hi Dolores! Unfortunately Airbnb unexpectedly ended their partnership program and a lot of the links got messed up when they did that. I’ve tried to relink as many as possible, but it’s quite tedious! My apologies.
