Recent California vacation rental reviews

Cute and cozy cabin in the woods with an old-school Tahoe feel. Great that parents and kids had separate spaces to hang with both upstairs and downstairs living rooms. Kitchen and bathrooms are a bit dated but well-stocked and had everything we needed.

The home has everything our family of 5 and 2 well behaved dogs needed! The extra room with futon and fireplace was like a 3rd bedroom and the back porch views of the ocean during the day and the stars in the sky at night were so beautiful. The hot tub was perfect after the redwoods hiking and the pathway to the beach was priceless! We cant wait to return during the summer months!

This place is quite a treat. Sleeping to the waves crashing and waking up to a breathtaking ocean view doesn’t happen all the time. The outdoor patio was a wonderful place to eat breakfast and look at the views. We walked to cooks beach a couple time and just loved it. There were a couple quirks with the place (some stuff could be added to kitchen, etc) but overall we just loved it and thank you to the owners for sharing this place with us!

Our favorite vacation spots in Southern California

Known worldwide for its vignettes of palm trees, Hollywood glamor, and soft sunsets, Southern California perpetually draws visitors in search of West Coast bliss. There are too many iconic sights to name in golden Los Angeles, but many travelers opt to spend their vacation in sunny San Diego---it's all a matter of preference. SoCal is also home to a few of the state's best mountain getaways, including Big Bear (where you'll find both ski runs and lake fun) and Idyllwild, known for forest serenity. If you're aiming for more of a desert vibe, we offer gorgeous Southwest rentals throughout the Coachella Valley, from Palm Springs to La Quinta and everything in between.

Coast to ski slopes in Central and Northern California

Laced along the path of legendary Highway 1, you'll find dozens of stunning vacation spots. From Cayucos and Morro Bay toward the south, to the sweeping vistas of Sea Ranch in the north, Vacasa manages a variety of gorgeous vacation rentals all along the California Coast. Head inland, and you'll find Groveland and Mammoth Lakes, beautiful vacation spots that bookend Yosemite National Park. Mammoth offers plenty of attractions in its own right, with pristine lakes and renowned ski slopes. Due north lies iconic Lake Tahoe, home to some of the nation's best boating, skiing, and hiking.

No matter where you're headed in California, you'll get the most out of your trip if you have a cozy, personal place to stay. Browse our California vacation rentals for your next Golden State getaway.
