If ‘beach, please’ is your holiday mantra, head over to Crescent City, California, a place for those who love nature. Located on the Pacific coast, it is named after its curved, sandy beach. When you are here, don’t miss the spectacular view from Battery Point Lighthouse and the natural wonder that is in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. If you want to see wildlife in their natural habitat, Mouth of Klamath Overlook is the place to visit. We have a guide of the best things to do in the city, too. However, only go exploring after you’ve booked a comfortable accommodation for yourself. We’ve done that legwork for you, with a round-up of the best Airbnbs in Crescent City, CA.

1. Beachfront cottage with captivating views (from USD 225)

Fancy waking to up to immaculate views of the ocean? That’s exactly what this beachfront cottage offers you. Overlooking the beautiful Pebble Beach, this charming home is best for a group of four adults and comes with two cozy bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a bathroom with a tub. Perhaps the best part of this home is the window-filled dining room with unobstructed views of the sea!

Some of the closest attractions are Redwood National and State Parks and the Pebble Beach House where you can join whale-watching and surfing.

8. Newly renovated modern home (from USD 219)

Smell the salty air as you bask in this light-filled 1920s home. It is hard to believe that it is a century-old when it’s fitted with modern amenities such as WiFi, two Roku smart televisions, Netflix, three types of coffee makers (coffee enthusiasts, rejoice!), washer-dryer and indoor fireplace. The two-bedroom, two-bath bungalow fits six snugly, and is one of the best spots to access both the beach and Redwoods. After a fun day at the beach, you can use the outdoor shower to rinse off the sand but not the smiles. The many hiking trails towards the magnificent forest is also a short drive away.
