(The Anchor Inn in Pacifica, CA)
We may not be able to take overseas trips with our beloveds just yet, but while we wait for international travel to become a big part of our lives again, lucky Bay Area couples have lots of staycation options, including these 8 stays in beautiful Pacifica.
Pacifica is a small city just about 20 miles south of San Francisco that spans six miles of beach. It may not be the balmiest coast on Earth, but it's certainly one of the prettiest. With its stunning sunsets, Pacifica is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. And the best part is that many Pacifica Air Bnbs with amazing views are available at shockingly reasonable rates.
Whether you're up for surf lessons, hiking, paddle boarding or just sipping coffee at one of the town's many delicious coffee establishments, you're sure to find a place that suits you and your romantic partner's needs at one of these eight stays.
New Private Studio
Pacifica may be known for its fog, but what you may not know is that the town has neighborhoods specifically known for being sunny. The neighborhood where this lovely studio is located is one of them. Built in 2020, the space has design elements including a geometric mural, a designer chandelier, and a large (shared) backyard with swing. A nearby biking path is a shortcut to the beach. Plus, the stay has 100% 5-star reviews so far!
Luxury Beach View Apartment
This surfer's dream comes with an incredible view. Pedro Point is a hilly neighborhood just south of Linda Mar, arguable the best beach in Pacifica for it's expanse of sand and proximity to the prettiest Taco Bell on Earth. Choosing between this incredible deck, cozy fireplace and freshly remodeled kitchen and the Holiday Inn down the road? No contest. The apartment is small and just for a two-person stay, but it's a perfect romantic getaway (and, let's be real, very affordable!).
I Love You to the Beach and Back
You might miss this little gem walking down the Pacifica oceanfront promenade, but if you're looking for a relaxing weekend (or weeklong) getaway, look no further than this lovely little place. Read for hours in front of the picture window that gives you a front-row view of the Pacific Ocean and waves crashing over the sea wall. You're in for spectacular sunsets and excellent people watching with a full view of the Pacifica Pier.
Anchor Inn Coastal Studio
This brand-new, modern studio unit is steps from the beach, surf lessons, and amazing coffee and food. It has easy access to Rt. 1 and local streets, but is also quiet and peaceful.
Home With Spectacular Ocean View
This home in the East Sharp Park neighborhood of Pacifica offers incredible views and a serene setting. It's walking distance from excellent ocean-view hiking. Just a short drive to the beach, it's also just about 15 minutes into San Francisco and just 20 minutes to the San Francisco International Airport.
Shelter Here Beach Cottage
Another stay that's steps from the beach—this one has a stylish interior, spacious outdoor kitchen, plus a woo-burning Franklin stove to up the coziness factor.
Modernist Paradise With Ocean Views
Floor to ceiling windows show off this this modern oasis' ocean views. The patio with fire pit and barbecue also face the ocean. This peaceful stay is just one-half mile from the Pacific Ocean, and a 20 minute drive to San Francisco.
