We’re not exaggerating, but if we don’t take a holiday soon we might actually die. Our hearts are saying book the damn holiday, buuut our bank balance says hell no. So instead we’ve taken to browsing through Airbnb, Instagram and Pinterest to satisfy our needs. The top destination on our imaginary holiday list? Los Angeles. We’ve picked out 11 of the most incredible, Instagrammable Airbnbs in LA, you know just in case we win the lottery and can actually afford to go. From a beachfront house in Malibu to a $4.5 million home in the Hollywood Hills, these are giving us serious wanderlust.

The Malibu beachfront apartment

From £300 per night

Did you even go to LA if you didn’t go to the beach? This insane beachfront pad in the surfer’s paradise of ultra-cool Malibu is literally our idea of heaven, with its rustic wooden deck and super chic white beachy interior; just imagine the Instagram opportunities at sunset here. Plus, previous guests have even said they’ve seen dolphins from the deck. That’s it. We’re moving in.

The LA Loft

From £102 per night

This quintessential LA loft is painfully cool, decked out in hipster plants, furry rugs and Insta-worthy hanging chairs; plus, it even has a balcony with a succulent wall garden. Situated in Downtown LA it’s also within walking distance from loads of cool bars, restaurants and farmers markets. And did we mention it has a rooftop pool?

The hilltop camper van

From £94 per night

Staying in a building is overrated – this Airbnb is an old camper van atop the Malibu Hills – pretty cool eh? The inside is super cosy and perfect for two, but the really cool part is the outside space which is decked out with outdoor seating, hammocks, a firepit, more fairy lights than you could shake a stick at and a love nook.

The Insta-worthy pool

From £259 per night

Located a few minutes walk from the Walk of Fame and Hollywood Boulevard, this vintage home feels like stepping back in time to Old Hollywood. Complete with 25-foot high ceilings, two bedrooms, mountain views, a garden to die for, the original 1930’s tiled mosaic pool plus a ballroom, we’re half expecting Marilyn Monroe to step out.

The ultra-modern $4.5 million home

From £640 per night

4.5 million hollywood home airbnb

Oh, how the other half lives. Make like a celeb in this ah-may-zing West Hollywood home which has jaw-dropping views of LA, a steam room, a fully stocked kitchen and three incredible bedrooms. Plus, you get access to a number of luxury cars (at extra cost); we’re talking Rolls Royces and Lamborghinis. No biggie.

The colourful guesthouse

From £104 per night

How adorable is this brightly coloured home? Tbh we’d stay here just for the pool & patio area, which even has a cute little herb garden and the all-important pool inflatables. Plus, the inside is just as cool at the outside with high tech gadgets, a power shower and a California king bed *sings Rihanna*.

The indoor-meets-outdoor cottage

From £113 per night

We’re so obsessed with this unique guest house which is just a stone’s throw away from the super cool area of Venice Beach. The cosy and rustic inside is the perfect getaway for two and has all the modern amenities you could need, like Netflix and a Smart TV. Our favourite part? The gorgeous vine-covered bathroom with an outdoor shower.

The Venice Beach pool house

From £87 per night
