After hours in the office, you sometimes need to take a break to recharge. But let's face it a trip to the exotic beaches of Hawaii or Bali might not be in the budget. A more thrifty alternative to breaking the bank going on one of these cute Vancouver staycations where you can kick back and be a tourist in your own city.

Even if you have limited funds in your savings account, it doesn't mean you don't deserve some downtime. Thankfully, you don't have to leave the city to get those vacay vibes.

Sometimes all you need is a quick change of scenery to help you relax. Plus, unlike flying to another country, you won't lose precious days off waiting at airports, or feeling exhausted with jet lag.

Instead, you can enjoy the sights in your hometown and be a tourist for a day.

Or you can always take advantage of the luxurious hotel quality sheets in the Airbnb's bed, and binge-watch your favourite show — we won't judge.

There are tons of gorgeous Airbnbs you can book right in Vancouver

Many of them will make you feel like you are at a 5-star hotel. For example, you can swim in a glass-bottom pool or stay at a beach condo. There is even one where you can start the day with a complimentary breakfast.

Meanwhile, for a more spa-like experience, there are options too. There are rentals where you can soak in a tub next to a fireplace or relax in a private hot tub surrounded by plants.

Here are nine Vancouver "staycation" Airbnbs you'll want to stay at the next time you desperately need a break:
