Huntington Beach Airbnb – 15 gorgeous condos and cottages to rent

In this post on Huntington Beach Airbnb, I will share the most beautiful homes, apartments, and villas that I have especially selected using my best judgment. But also the best reviews from the previous guests.

Huntington Beach is a charming surfing beach town in Orange County California. If you love the surf culture, laid-back vibes, and lots of sand you must include it in your California Itinerary. And, no, you don’t necessarily be a surfer to enjoy this area.

In fact, the pretty town of Huntington Beach is lined with an endless stretch of golden sand beach, named after the very same town and loved also by beach lovers, and sport-enthusiast.

One of the most popular beaches in Orange County, and probably of all California, Huntington Beach, also boasts one of the longest piers on the West Coast and boasts miles of trails perfect for biking, dog walking, or skating.

So without further delay, here below find my favorite Huntington beach Airbnb.

DISCLAIMER – I am promoting the Airbnb platform because that’s what I always use, but I am not making any earnings for the moment as they have discontinued the partnership program. If you wish to support this site you may want to also consider booking on other platforms such as VRBO,,, which would pay a small commission at no cost for you. Your kind support is greatly appreciated. 🙂

Captain Jack’s Surf Shack

6 guests · 2 bedrooms · 5 beds · 1 bath4.88

So much beauty for a shack! Seriously. When I read “shack” I couldn’t believe it was among the Airbnb Plus. Then I saw the pictures and I thought: “I want to live in this “Shack” like forever!”

Don’t let the distance from the beach discourage you. It’s only 2 miles and I am sure you will have rented a car. Or maybe you can rent a bike to move around the neighborhood and live your vacay like a local! But this place is a real gem that you cannot miss.

The beachy vibes from the laidback chic decor perfectly match the luxurious amenities to make you feel at home. The natural wood floors, and minimal furniture, create a nice balance with the colorful artwork, inspired by the local coastline. It’s like having the ocean on your walls.

Make sure you don’t miss the spectacular sunset from the rooftop deck.

The house is located in an eclectic residential neighborhood less than 2 miles from the beach and all the local hotspots!

Beachfront at Huntington Beach CA

2 guests · 1 bedroom · 1 bed· 1 bath4

I have to be honest, I didn’t choose this apartment for the decor and its overall esthetic. It’s not exactly my style. However, I mean, look at the location. You basically step right on the beach from your patio and you have the sunset in your living room.

And that totally makes up for the less appealing decor. Am I right?

10 guests, · 4 bedrooms, · 11 beds, · 2.5 baths – ⭐ 4.92

This home has a weird name but I understand the owner wanting to emphasize the fact that it’s located in a very strategic spot only one block from the beach and close to many bars and restaurants.

The house itself has very spacious rooms and is decorated with posters and other items in memory of Nataly Kotsch, a legend in Huntington beach as she was the founder of the International Surfing Museum. In fact, this home previously belonged to her.

You can look her up and look for her name on the Surfing Walk of Fame on the “Honor Roll” on Main street at the entrance to Jacks Surf Shop.

The house is also stocked with everything you need to be comfortable, including beach chairs, wagons, coolers, umbrellas, and beach toys for enjoying the sandy beach.

Guest can also use an open-air shower and barbecue facilities on the back porch to relax after a fun day on the sand.
