Everything from orange and white patio furniture to bright green AstroTurf walls, makes this Baldwin Hills cushion a page torn from the Crate & Barrel Fall 2016 catalog.

When was the last time you slept in a shiny 29ft Airstream? Probably never. At this Venice Beach home, you can choose between a plush Casper mattress (found in all bedrooms) or the Airstream which sleeps four.

There is a wooden deck that surrounds the house, complete with lounge chairs, string lights to set the mood, and a built-in hot tub for four, making this the beach house that California dreams are made of.
There are houses, and then there are HOUSES. We would be remiss if we didn’t include at least one garish Beverly Hills mansion where you could live like a king for a day (or month?!). This 10-bedroom luxury crib probably has its own zip code, but unless you’re Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, we’re not sure what you would do with all that space. At the entrance of this three-story house, there is not one, but two marble staircases (his and hers?), Which lead to seven bedrooms, including the master bedroom and a massage room – car you will need it after paying the $ 6,000 / night by invoice.

And after your chef-prepared meal, you’ll be too full to climb the iron stairs, so take the elevator.

Only in LA you could stay in a cottage built by Charlie Chaplin in the 1920s. The 550 square foot studio apartment in West Hollywood has a European charm that has apparently attracted celebrities like Marilyn Monroe, Patrick Dempsey and Rudolph Valentino. This particular loft is one of 25 in a bungalow apartment community known as ‘The Shire’ and has some of the original features built by Chaplin, like the loft bed frame and the ladder system. The current owner has added her own flair to the space with local flea market finds and DIY pieces, so it goes without saying that this humble abode has plenty of history.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with this trailer tucked away atop an artist’s loft (and the neighborhood’s new music venue, Resident). , which offers some of the best downtown skyline views. The rooftop terrace has its own lawn, with lounge chairs, tons of green foliage (even cacti!), Chinese umbrellas, and colorful string lights so you really feel like you’ve been transported a few decades away. backward.
If you are looking for a true far-away experience – literally and figuratively – you can stay in this van located deep in the valley. You’ll only be surrounded by the Santa Monica Mountains and pepper groves, but surprisingly, the interior of this little red train is beautifully detailed, with a vintage pewter ceiling and ornate moldings, and is better stocked than most college dorms. . There is a Cal-King bed, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, toaster, and microwave. But if you’re in the mood to fish for your own dinner, you can walk 20 minutes to a fishing farm or sip local wines at the Cornell Winery Tasting Room. You’re also just steps away from Paramount Ranch State Park, which has been the backdrop for many western movies and shows like Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman. It might not be your typical romantic getaway, but the picturesque views and hidden location make it a perfect place for couples to go wild.
Ahh, Venice Beach, where you’ll find beach goers residing in bungalows and techies living in multi-million dollar bachelor apartments, all on the same block. Steps from trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd, you’ll find this ultra-stylish architectural wonder. The modern building, adorned with futuristic, Tokens-style furniture and lots of white space, consists of two living rooms connected by a bridge that overlooks the courtyard. That way, in case you get bored of one, you can switch to the other.
Why go to the bar when the bar can come to you? Here is: “The Silent Woman” – a 1920s guesthouse and sweatshop, all in one. Whaaaa? Yes, it’s true. This Airbnb has all the essentials you would need to be a hermit: a 60 inch TV, kitchen, wet bar, and fireplace (OK, maybe you don’t need the latter considering “winter” in LA, but why not?). Get comfortable and learn how to serve yourself a cocktail in this historic pub (er, your temporary home).
It’s no secret that Malibu is the land of real estate porn, and this gorgeous oceanfront estate is no exception. After a three-mile drive to Corral Canyon, you’ll arrive at this secluded three-story stunner with all-glass windows and an atrium in the master suite that retracts so you can feel the ocean breeze directly from your room. The breathtaking interior screams opulence. Pick up a book from the floor-to-ceiling library and fall in luxury in Paul Evans Cityscape living room furniture with tufted silk velor upholstery, or have a decadent meal on the Milo Baughman dining set (because everywhere where you sit should be designed by a designer). The 2,700-square-foot oasis, named Scorpiesse, was completely rebuilt into this dream Malibu home after the 2007 Corral Canyon fires destroyed the original home. It also offers incredible mountain and ocean views, so whatever room you find yourself in, you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world.
You don’t have to be a 10-year-old to want a treehouse. Even as an adult, you can experience the joys of being surrounded by nature at this 1927 cabin-like treehouse perched in the hills of Silver Lake. Included are views of the reservoir (currently under construction), the Hollywood Sign, and the Griffith Observatory. You will also find a clawfoot tub under a skylight, a fireplace, and a few musical instruments left over from previous artists. So there are many ways to relax among the trees. Of course, it wouldn’t be a real treehouse without a massive tree sticking out of the house – don’t complain if you see a few fallen leaves (or crawling creatures) on your pillow. This quaint treehouse is the perfect glamping getaway where we’re pretty sure no one will find you.
