Planning a trip to Oregon and looking for the best Airbnb Portland rentals? Well, you’ve come to the right place, because I’ve put together this amazing Portland Airbnb travel guide to help you find the perfect accommodation for your upcoming visit!

The capital city of the south-west U.S state of Oregon, Portland is a clean and green destination with a very hip vibe. Super liberal and easygoing, Portland is home to just over half a million happy and healthy residents, and the relatively small population only adds to the sense of space and freedom visitors just can’t get enough of. 

Airbnbs in Portland

Portland is named for its early 20th century beginnings as a super dangerous shipping port, but now it’s a haven for hipsters, eco-warriors and nature lovers. Sure, it rains a lot, but that doesn’t get to Portland locals too much. They’re too busy making the most out of their days, climbing mountains, running iconic local breweries, growing their own produce, riding bikes and working to conserve this world-class destination and its majestic environmental offerings. 

Portland also weirdly has the most strip clubs of any city in the States. Go figure. But The “City of Roses” – as it’s been known for over a century – has one of the highest ratings for quality of life in America, and a trip here will regenerate, restore and rejuvenate any lucky visitor. 

AirBNBs in Portland are just like the city’s residents – ultra-hip, welcoming and eco-friendly. They have some of the best overall ratings I’ve ever seen for any global city, and it was hella tough for me to pick my 20 favorites. But here it is – my shortlist of the best Airbnb Portland rentals….

1) Chic Guest House in the Heart of the City

The Overall Best AirBNB in Portland 

Location: Laurelhurst 

AirBNB Plus: Yes 

Superhost: Yes 

Price: $90+ USD per night 

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/31649731

Located in the historical Portland neighborhood of Laurelhurst, this lovely one-bedroom guesthouse is my pick for the overall best AirBNB in Portland. And it’s not just its perfect 5 star overall rating or affordable price that sold me on giving it the Jones stamp of approval. This verified gem is homey, warm, welcoming and immaculate, with a fantastic host who wants to share her incredible Portland AirBNB with you. Its white, breezy interiors and high ceilings add to its refreshing sense of space, and the local area is one of the most visitor-friendly in this charming city. This vintage district has lots of hip cafes, restaurants and a tranquil major park, and is right on the dividing line between SE and NE Portland. 

Guest review: “Book this one! As everyone else has noted, this place is incredibly warm and welcoming, accurately described, perfectly located and spotless clean! I was on a solo vacation for 2 weeks exploring the PNW and ended up in Portland for the last leg of the trip. This place helped me relax and feel at home as I unwinded each day. Infinitely better than a hotel with a host who cares about the full experience. I’ll book again the next time I’m in the area again! :)” – Sahar

Well done Arthur & Adam for providing a great pad to crash after exploring Portland.” – John

12) The Sneakaway | Portland Airbnb

Location: Woodlawn 

AirBNB Plus: No 

Superhost: Yes 

Price: $100+ USD per night 

https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/23353382

Nestled in the large yard of host Raychel’s home, you’ll want to move into “The Sneakaway” permanently once you experience its epic offerings. This small guesthouse is maximised by high vaulted ceilings and was built with love by Raychel and her friends. Other than a super comfy bed, the piece de resistance of The Sneakaway is its two person soaking tub, which is a divine treat on a cold Portland evening. The host and her friends and family often BBQ, have a few drinks or pass around a joint in the yard in the warmer months, and even encourage guests to join them if they want to! The charming neighborhood of Woodlawn has a range of weed shops, taverns, breweries and cafes, and is a breezy 10 minute walk to the culturally rich Alberta Arts district. Over 200 guests have given this abode a perfect score, and I bet you will too. 

Guest review: “Raychel’s home was a peaceful retreat. She has everything you could ever want to feel cozy, relaxed, and entertained. We were especially enchanted by the soft light, ferns, and Raychel’s record collection. If we didn’t venture out, we would have been content with our Portland visit. But of course we did go out. And two of our favorite places to eat were nearby. Brunch at Hesler’s for the Dutchbaby crepes and pork belly/chicken at Hat Yai. I also love the shoe curation at PedX and the co-op, both on Alberta. Thanks, Raychel, for sharing your home! We hope to be back soon.” – Cheryl

Located on a seven acre farm with resident sheep and alpacas, this retreat is located on Portland’s charmingly rustic and relaxing Sauvie Island. Bright and contemporary, this one bedroom guesthouse is named “Tu Casa” by its friendly owners, and is fully self-contained. Meander around the farm and enjoy the resident animals and lush native plant life, or pick their seasonal produce. You’ll also enjoy views of Mt. St Helens and stunning local vineyards. The hosts have young children and there’s a resident rooster that cocks each morning, but this rustic slice of heaven is still a relaxing stay! There is a great little sandy river beach just 15 minutes drive away, and the nearby town of St John’s is a vegan haven, with coffee shops, breweries and markets galore. Downtown Portland is just 10 miles away. The local eco-friendly residents catch the efficient local bus into Portland or to local towns, or they bike like so many other Oregon residents. 

Guest review: “I’ve stayed at many AirBNBs in the past, and Vail’s has got to be one of the best around… I don’t say that lightly! It feels great to know that the money from your stay is going to support their local business with a farm that clearly a lot of time and purpose has gone into. Communication was quick and flawless, the quarters were truly built with quality and intention, and the farm animals are right out the back door. We only stayed for one night only, but would’ve been happy spending many nights there. We bought some of the Black Bery Port and Honey from the farm, both delicious!” – Nicholas

Downtown Portland can be reached effortlessly in as little as 10 minutes by car. 

Guest review: “We had such a lovely stay at the Sunny Urban Abode. The place is spotless and very well designed — also I should say that the bed is the MOST comfortable bed we’ve ever slept in. I would literally return for that alone. Location is wonderful, a 1-minute walk to restaurants and coffee shops and a 15-minute scenic walk to Mississippi Ave (tons of restaurants and bars!). Short 20-min Lyft from the Airport and 9-min from downtown / Pearl District. Would book this again in a heartbeat!” – Megan

Review: “Excellent tour & tour experience–one of the best I’ve taken. Although the places we went had no entry fee, the stories related to the sites (insight into the areas) & surrounding areas are well worth the cost of the tour. Enjoyed the short walk to the falls & the fact that we were able to get so close to the falls without getting all wet.” – Janice, United States
