12 Bay Area Airbnbs for local staycation during Covid

If you're like me whose travel plans have all been cancelled due to 2020, hopefully this post will motivate you to pack your bags and aim for somewhere closer. As we all adapt to the new normal, local getaway maybe the best chance that we have at unplugging and restoring our work-life balance. If you live in the Bay Area, coastal escape or a retreat in the redwoods is often accessible within an hour drive away! With that said, planning a vacation with social distancing in mind is still the most important. That's why I prefer to stay at a rental house where there's little to none human interaction.

Over the past weeks, most of my tabs on Chrome have been dominated by Airbnb listings and my wish-list for Bay Area staycation has grown from a sad list of 3 to now 20! Being someone who's still paranoid about traveling due to Covid, I always make sure to pick listings that follow Airbnb's enhanced cleaning protocol, which according to their website is "a rigorous set of cleaning standards developed by Airbnb with leading health and hospitality experts for the times of COVID-19 and beyond."
