The Best Places in the US to Airbnb for a Monthly Rental or Remote Working Vacation in 2021
The past year has brought with it a ton of life changes, one of the biggest being the shift to remote work! Offices everywhere from San Francisco to Chicago to LA to New York City saying you can work from home until further notice, I’ve noticed a trend among my friends looking to make a new home away from the city for a couple months at a time. Because let’s face it, when else in our lives will we have this chance! But everyone has the same question – where should we go? You’re looking for a place you can call ‘home’ for a month or so, and I’ve got you!
For the price you probably pay for rent in a city, you can spend a month, or a few months,
working remotely and being productive while exploring a new place, but you want a community, good weather and enough going on you won’t get bored. So I decided to round up my top choices for where to rent out an Airbnb or VRBO for a couple months. Because let’s face it, we all deserve to get away, and who knows the next time your boss will say ‘go ahead, work from wherever you want!’.
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
San Diego is where my fiance and I have been spending lockdown and it hasn’t felt like ‘lockdown’. With the beaches open (and thriving), you can start your day with a surf (and if you’re a beginner, take a private lesson with a pro), have acai bowls for breakfast, take your morning calls from your rental house, have some Mexican food on the beach for lunch, finish the day, and meet up with your buddies for after work drinks at one of the many outdoor bars and restaurants. Or, if you’re not quite ready to be out and about, just enjoy the ocean views from your house and the perfect summer and fall weather that San Diego brings (averages are upper 70s, and dry, not humid). I’d recommend basing from Pacific Beach if you’re looking to be in the center of the action, Encinitas if you want a fun restaurant/bar scene and a gorgeous beach, also a little closer to LA, La Jolla if you’re looking for an upscale escape and some of the best views in San Diego.
The best Airbnbs in San Diego for a couple or a single:
Modern Encinitas 1 bedroom rental with porch, 4 minute walk to downtown restaurants and the beach
Mission Beach Townhouse, steps from Beach
Mission beach is great because it’s slightly quieter than Pacific Beach, but you’re still a walk away from the hustle and bustle of PB when you want it.
Pacific Beach Cottage
Pacific Beach top floor condo with ocean views
Quiet, coastal retreat steps from the beach and downtown Encinitas for 2 people
Bright, sunny studio on the beach in Leucadia/Encinitas
A cozy studio in a quiet neighborhood with french doors opening up to a balcony of ocean and sunshine, this looks like a great spot.
The best Airbnbs in San Diego for a family or group:
Encinitas modern OCEANFRONT house, sleeps 10 guests
How gorgeous is this house? Probably more for a San Diego vacation than an extended stay, but hey, if budget is no object – go for it!
Oceanfront Cottage on the Water in Mission Beach
Beachfront Lifestyle Cottage with Stunning Views
Can you even imagine waking up to this every day? Take my money now.
Modern Malibu 1 bedroom with ocean views & huge patios
How dreamy is this!?
Miami beaches are open, South Beach is open, restaurants are used to tons of outdoor dining, and it’s become somewhat of a hub for remote workers looking to work from paradise, and to wake up with this view.
Also, wow, when I was finding these places, I’m stunned at the quality of place with oceanviews you can find for SO cheap for the month in Miami. BRB moving here.
This airbnb studio with a king bed and super modern amenities is only $3000 a month – and shares the facilities of the 1 Hotel South Beach!
Key Biscayne Condo with a Pool
Under 2000 a month for a cute bright condo with beach access and a pool? Where do I sign up.
Furnished 1 bedroom 1 block from South Beach
Or, head north to Palm Beach for a quieter beach escape, (but still with enough going on)
Palm Beach Private Guest House
THE HAMPTONS, NEW YORK
If money is no object, or you’re going in on a Hamptons house with friends, this is an ideal spot with ocean views and a huge pool.
or a cozy, hamptons cottage like this one.
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA
Bright and Airy State Street Cottage
Santa Barbara Villa, walk to the beach
Tropical Santa Barbara guest house
If you’re looking for the biggest bang for your buck, and don’t mind the heat (or you want to book a fall/winter getaway and are LOOKING for the desert sunshine), Scottsdale is an awesome place to base from for a month or two. And it’s SO AFFORDABLE.
