Recent California vacation rental reviews

LAYOUT AND VIEW WAS GREAT. DEALING WITH VACASA NOT SO MUCH SO. DIDN'T GET ENTRY CODES UNTIL I WAS IN CAR AND 10 MINUTES AWAY FROM CONDO
Michael H. | Apr 2021
This house was absolutely perfect. Great location walking distance from Skylandia park and beach and less than a 5 minute drive from town. The house is completely stocked with anything you could possibly want in a vacation rental-we cooked several nice dinners and breakfast every day and had everything we needed. There was plenty of room for three adult couples and lots of areas in the house to hang out, play pool, hot tub, stargaze etc. The backyard is not fenced in just if you are bringing a fur baby thought it would be important to mention. This is one of the nicest vacation rentals I have stayed in. There’s even an EV charger located in the garage. As the description states there is no cable tv however there’s Netflix downstairs if you have an account you can login and chrome cast on both the upstairs TVs. The area is so gorgeous though why would you want to stay in watching tv? I highly recommend this rental and will absolutely stay there anytime I visit beautiful Lake Tahoe.

This is a great location with private beach access. The house is small but has everything you need. Great place for "family time".

Our favorite vacation spots in Southern California

Known worldwide for its vignettes of palm trees, Hollywood glamor, and soft sunsets, Southern California perpetually draws visitors in search of West Coast bliss. There are too many iconic sights to name in golden Los Angeles, but many travelers opt to spend their vacation in sunny San Diego---it's all a matter of preference. SoCal is also home to a few of the state's best mountain getaways, including Big Bear (where you'll find both ski runs and lake fun) and Idyllwild, known for forest serenity. If you're aiming for more of a desert vibe, we offer gorgeous Southwest rentals throughout the Coachella Valley, from Palm Springs to La Quinta and everything in between.

Coast to ski slopes in Central and Northern California

Laced along the path of legendary Highway 1, you'll find dozens of stunning vacation spots. From Cayucos and Morro Bay toward the south, to the sweeping vistas of Sea Ranch in the north, Vacasa manages a variety of gorgeous vacation rentals all along the California Coast. Head inland, and you'll find Groveland and Mammoth Lakes, beautiful vacation spots that bookend Yosemite National Park. Mammoth offers plenty of attractions in its own right, with pristine lakes and renowned ski slopes. Due north lies iconic Lake Tahoe, home to some of the nation's best boating, skiing, and hiking.

No matter where you're headed in California, you'll get the most out of your trip if you have a cozy, personal place to stay. Browse our California vacation rentals for your next Golden State getaway.
