The coolest, most unique vacation rentals in the Bay Area (not hotels!)

September 29th, 2016 by Property Alliance

Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA

Staying in a fancy hotel is fun, but staying in a unique rental can turn your staycation into a great adventure! From caravans and tugboats, to castles and huts, these Airbnb rentals in the Bay area lend a one of a kind experience for their guests.

The Hobbit Hut

This quaint hut comes equipped with a living grass roof that is used to make wheatgrass juice! There are stained glass windows and an earthen floor that create a zen feel inside this awesome hut.

On the property, there are animals you can watch as you enjoy your stay: ocelots, servals, emus, peacocks, alpacas, and parrots. If you want to get up close and personal, there is even a bobcat you can pet and a cockatoo you can hold! You won’t find another property to stay on like this, and it’s only $100 per night in Geyserville, CA.

Vintage Caravan Camper in Oakland, CA

The Vintage Caravan

In Oakland, CA there is an adorable urban camper that is perfect for what some call “glamping”. From the bright colored furniture to the black and white checkered floors, you will be brought back to a time where things were a little funkier.

With your stay in the camper comes coffee and tea to drink in the garden, and chickens to watch all the while. If you want to get out for a while, there are also bikes for you to borrow. At only $85 a night, this amazing experience is a steal!

The Mushroom Dome

In a forest of Oak, Madrone, and Redwood trees, you will find a geodesic dome loft that surrounds you with nature while still lending you all the amenities you want. There is a garden full of hummingbirds, as well as goats roaming around that you can pet.

As for your nights, as long as the moon isn’t full, you will have a first class seat to view the breathtaking stars. If there’s no fog, you may even get lucky and see the milky way! $115 a night will land you in this Aptos, CA getaway that is sure to please.

107 Year Old Tugboat

Spend the night floating just 3 miles away from the Golden Gate Bridge, drifting off to sleep in a tugboat built in 1908. With a bedroom that can sleep two and a living room that can comfortably sleep one adult or two children, this tugboat offers an awesome experience for a couple’s getaway or a family adventure, and for only about $150 a night.

Just a stone’s throw away from this charming abode is a hip french bistro that offers coffee & croissants, brunch, and even a candlelit dinner by the water.

A Private Castle in San Francisco, CA

Via Airbnb

A Private Castle

Right in San Francisco, you can stay in a private castle that can accommodate up to four people, for $425 a night. This castle is inspired by a French fortress and surely does not disappoint.

You will truly feel like you are in a medieval castle, except for all the modern amenities, of course! The castle is close walking distance from the popular Union Street and Polk Street corridors, where you’ll find some of the best restaurants and cafes around.

Finding a new and different place to stay is an easy way to transform your vacation (or staycation) into a very memorable adventure! Visit Airbnb to check out the availability for these rentals, as well as so many more!
