Benicia is an appealing destination for maritime adventures and that means Benicia’s accommodation is equally appealing. Choosing an Airbnb rather than a hotel provides great exposure to Benicia’s local surroundings. From the Carquinez Straits to the historic waterfront, many of these picturesque lodgings will have you smitten with the Northern California seaside lifestyle. So, read on to discover the best Airbnbs in Waterside, Benicia.
The first thing you’ll notice about this newly renovated studio is its design. For one thing, the whole suite is structured in an L shape — with the bed, living area, fireplace, and TV on one end and the bathroom with a walk-in shower on the other. And for another, there’s one more living area outdoors — this time, it’s equipped with comfortable seats, a barbeque grill, and even a hot tub.
With all that said, you can expect to have a grand time relaxing in this rental.
To make things even better, this studio is also strategically located — downtown Benicia is close by, which means you can easily travel to beaches and other attractions. Napa and San Francisco are also only 30 minutes away, so if you want to explore those cities, you can do so without any trouble. This house truly is a wonderful getaway!

If you’re traveling solo, with a best friend, or with your sweetheart, the Bohemian Bunk Inn has you covered. The private room has one king-size bed and two twin-size beds.

The host has taken great care with her free-spirited-type decor and takes even greater care of her guests by providing clean and comfortable rooms, light breakfast items, and afternoon snacks. The Bohemian Bunk Inn is an easy walking distance to Benicia’s downtown area and the neighborhood is generously sprinkled with blooming gardens and fruit trees.

If you want an out-of-the-ordinary lodging experience then spend the night on a charming houseboat. It’s “front porch” is decorated with various plants and the houseboat itself is festooned with colorful lights, giving it a great festive atmosphere. The upper deck is the place to enjoy wonderful sunsets. Once night falls, set the fire pit ablaze on the top level to make the experience extra special. Don’t miss the chance to create unforgettable memories on board this one-of-a-kind floating oasis!
Cool Studio Apartment is small, but it packs a punch, with spectacular views of the Carquinez Straits and lovely Benicia. Once an art studio, the studio is now a cozy space, within walking distance of all the best that Benicia has to offer. Breakfast amenities are simple, but tasty: coffee, orange juice, and yogurt - just enough to get you going.
The studio has not one, but two private decks, with a pretty garden and awesome sunset views. It is the prime spot for relaxing with a glass of wine, after a hectic day.
The Suite Spot is a one-bedroom apartment, perfect for solo travelers, couples, small families, or a small circle of friends. Just steps from a beautiful park by the water, the Suite Spot offers an outdoor paradise, as well as a comfortable indoor retreat. Clean, modern, and tastefully decorated, the Suite Spot scores high with guests and many speak of repeat visits.
The kitchen is nicely equipped, but best for cooking light meals. The Suite Spot is pet-friendly, however, there is a non-refundable deposit.

Vista Del Sol is a unique property. A spacious four bedroom, two-story structure, the lower level offers delicate arches and bungalow-type accents, in addition to a farmhouse-style kitchen. The upper floor boasts many large windows, that allow for spectacular ocean views in practically every direction.
The top level also provides a great spot for watching stunning evening sunsets. If that’s not enough to tempt you, the outdoor deck is shaded by two magnificent California Redwoods.
