10 Best Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Encino, California - Updated 2024

| 6 min read

People say great things come in small packages. That is true for Encino, an affluent neighborhood in Los Angeles (LA), where shopping, fine dining, and Hollywood celebrity sightings are normal occurrences. This unassuming place, located in the San Fernando Valley region of LA, is packed with huge houses, apartment buildings, and beautiful parks. Although smaller than other areas in the city, the cost of living here is high. However, with its perfect weather and quiet surroundings, it is well worth its price. Ventura Boulevard in Encino, the world’s longest stretch of restaurants and shops, is a favorite tourist destination. Lake Balboa, which features a maritime-themed play area, is another great spot to visit. Make sure not to miss these when you are visiting Encino and book an accommodation that allows you to explore the neighborhood easily. Check out the list below of the best Airbnb vacation Rentals in Encino, California.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 11, 2024.

1. Cozy safari retreat (from USD 99)

A crib, high chair, changing table, and baby bath are also available for guests who are vacationing with their babies. The best thing about this Airbnb is that the host, Oren, lives in the main house in the same area, so, it is very easy to ask for help if you have concerns about the unit. Ventura Boulevard and Westfield Topanga are just a short drive away if you want to do a little shopping.
