As soon as the Coachella lineup dropped (hello, Lana Del Rey and Vampire Weekend), festival-goers started snapping up nearby hotel rooms left and right. That doesn’t mean you’re stuck sleeping in your car for the weekend, though: you can still book some gorgeous Coachella Airbnbs just a few blocks away from the action. There’s an option for every kind of summer music festival attendee, too.

If you’re ready for a weekend-long party, you might want to reserve one of the options with a saltwater pool, outdoor grill, and massive entertainment room. Just looking for a quiet respite from the pulsating festival grounds? Retreat to one of the quaint one-bedroom homes or pint-sized casitas on this list to get some much-needed R&R in between sets.

Best Coachella Airbnbs

1. The huge compound in Indio

This massive home sleeps as many as 14 guests, making it an ideal choice for a big group. The whole gang will enjoy hanging by the pool, grilling on the deck, and playing a game of pool after a long day in the hot desert sun. Time to pop a bottle? For sure.

2. The three-bedroom home with lake, mountain and festival views in Indio

Just two miles away from the festival grounds, this sweet three-bedroom home couldn’t be in a more convenient location. Thanks to several trundle beds and pull-out sofas in addition to standard queen beds, it can sleep as many as 12 guests. The best part? You can enjoy the festival vibes in the backyard – in case it all gets a bit much early morning.

Distance from Coachella: No more than a 10-minute drive, wa-hay. 


3. The casita within walking distance of Coachella in Indio

Don’t want to cram into an overcrowded party house? Rent this quaint casita for a relaxing escape from the festival scene. The pint-sized property has a much smaller footprint than the other options on this list, but the sunny yellow walls and lovely desert views help it feel cozy instead of cramped. Enjoy this little slice of peace amid the wilderness of the festival. Ahh, bliss.

5. Luxury remodelled Condo in Palm Valley Country Club

This luxury four-bedroom is the ideal choice for a small group of festival goers looking to get turnt up at Coachella, while still having a cozy quiet oasis to call theirs as soon as the partying is over. And trust us if, you've done Coachella, then you know the drill – Having a place to recoup for day two is as essential as SPF and a power bank.

This place is definitely a cut above you're average Airbnb, so expect a spicy Palm Springs price tag.
