If, however, you are not currently lounging above ground level, we have something you might want to see.
Introducing Inhabit Vacations, a new site stockpiled with a growing collection of handpicked rental bungalows, lofts and treehouses in the city and Sonoma, in beta now and taking reservations for all your escaping needs.
While you might not need a five-bedroom, koi-pond-equipped estate near Glen Ellen every weekend, the properties cover the spectrum in terms of utility. Like say you’ve got out-of-town friends looking to crash somewhere more intimate than a downtown hotel. You might direct them to the Alamo Square Victorian situated steps from the Painted Ladies—with a hot tub for eight, outdoor showers and the option of a private chef.
The best part about it all (aside from easy koi pond access) is that the properties are located in solid locals neighborhoods, so you’ll be saved from getting stuck in touristy spots. And they’ll even pass along tips that locals would prefer you not know (like the fact that you can swim in the pool at the El Dorado Hotel before dining at EDK in Sonoma).
Next up: New York and Portland.
You’ll be hot-tubbing from coast to coast in no time.
