Make a holiday rental property or home in California your home away from home

California, known as the Golden State, is a great place to holiday, with enough entertainment to keep even those with a diverse range of interests happy for many weeks. California is on the west coast of the USA, extending along the Pacific Coast from the borders which California shares with Arizona and Oregon. Taking a California holiday rental home in one area of the state seems like being in an entirely different country to a holiday rental just a few miles away, as the scenery quickly changes from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Tropical Coastline of San Diego, to Death Valley or the cosmopolitan cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Things to do on holiday in California

Beaches take a proud place in California's heritage, and the communities who live along the coast are mainly sports enthusiasts. Almost every water sport can be enjoyed to a world class level in California, and inland the walking and hiking will not disappoint either. California holiday rental homes around Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park or Mono Lake are perfect for outdoor activities and enjoying the stunning, diverse and magical landscape of California. California's landscape is some of the most diverse and incredible in the world, from the Redwood forests to the snow capped Sierra Nevada Mountains, and from the glacier carved Yosemite National Park to the huge deserts, and from the cliff lined beaches of the coast to the fertile vineyard covered plains of the Napa Valley.

Family holidays taking advantage of a holiday rental in California are spoilt for choice for entertainment. There are an endless supply of theme parks and family entertainment centres, especially in Southern California, including Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, Sea World and the globally renowned San Diego Zoo.

Places to holiday in California

San Francisco Bay is home to the cities of San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland, all of which are genuine holiday destinations in their own right. However, it is the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge which steals the limelight for visitors staying in a California holiday rental in the San Francisco Bay area. Tours of the infamous Alcatraz make a once in a life time experience, and are certainly worth doing from a California holiday rental in the region. The area is known as one of the most liberal places in the USA, and consequently it is home to a hugely diverse range of people, activities and sights.

The Los Angeles Area is a global destination for holidays to California. Dreaming of stardom, or just a glimpse of global stars going about their daily life, people from all over the world take a California holiday rental for Hollywood alone, but there is so much more in the Los Angeles area.

The infamous Orange County in the heart of Southern California is a blissful region of sun, sand, sea and all the best things in life. There is a magnificent amount of entertainment, including being the closest place to take a California holiday rental home for the theme parks famous in the south of the Golden State.

Weather in California

As a slender, yet hugely long state covering much of the west coast of the USA, California has a huge range of climates too. The hottest place in the world, Death Valley is a staggering place to visit if you can stand the heat, yet further north, cool, damp forests like the amazing redwood rainforests of the north coast flourish. The state averages an unbelievable 354 days of sunshine a year though!

Travel to California

Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), San Diego (SAN), Oakland (OAK) and San Jose (SJC) all have international airports, meaning that reaching you self catering California holiday rental home is never too painful.
