Oh, wanderlust, you saucy minx. The desire to skip town for the upcoming holiday weekend is building, especially when your Instagram feed looks like an issue of National Geographic and your friends are adding stamps to their passports like they’re Carmen Sandiego. But if jet-setting for the 4th isn’t in the cards — whether it's your budget or your hectic schedule that's making it impossible — you can still indulge the travel bug by booking yourself a sweet staycation.
After all, tourists from all over the world flock to Los Angeles for its beach scene, so why would you dare to leave for Independence Day? This upcoming holiday weekend is just the time to appreciate the perks of living by the best coast. Book a rental like the ones we’ve rounded up here, and in minutes you’ll feel far, far away from it all.
From Malibu to Hermosa, these Westside homes boast every kind of amenity. Maybe being steps from the sand is a critical component of your staycation? Or perhaps you’d prefer a sun-drenched roof deck? Badass barbecue? Chic decor? Whatever is on your checklist, be sure to book fast! Good rentals like these don’t stay vacant long. Bonus? No matter the house you choose, you won't have to deal with traffic or parking to see seaside fireworks.
Got to go, wanderlust. The beach is calling...
