  • Airbnb is an easy way to find a place to stay for a vacation or business trip, but you can find so much more than just an average apartment.
  • Unusual listings range in price, location, and budget, so there’s something for everyone.
  • You can go rustic in a yurt, or upscale in a fully updated midcentury modern home.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Silicon Valley is known as the home to tech companies like Apple, Facebook, and Google, but there’s more to see and do than work.

Cities, the ocean, and areas for hiking make Silicon Valley a destination for all kinds of reasons.

The place you stay during your visit depends on the kind of trip you’re looking for. If you want to enjoy wine and beautiful views, and you don’t mind staying on the more rustic side of things, a yurt on a vineyard might be right for you. However, if you want to take the whole family, and stay plugged in while having access to nature, a luxe three-story cabin in Woodside might be more your style.

Whatever you’re looking for, there’s probably a listing that fits your needs without being boring. These options vary from under $100 a night to almost $1000 a night, so a budget shouldn’t stop you from exploring.
