If you’re a fan of HBO’s Big Little Lies, it’s hard not to seethe with real-estate envy. Every episode of the show, set in the picturesque California town of Monterey, features some seriously stunning coastal estates. But you don’t have to spend a million bucks to spend a weekend like Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Bonnie, and Renata.

Whether you want to swing by the Blue Blues Cafe (Paluca Trattoria IRL!) on Fisherman’s Wharf, jog along Del Monte Beach, or unwind in an oceanside Pacific Grove cottage, these affordable Monterey Airbnbs are just the ticket.
