I love Portland. I love the weird vibes, the bountiful donut and coffee shops, the art scene and how so many gems are within walking distance to each other. Plus, come fall and all the foliage is just stunning.
There is some really fantastic boutique downtown Portland hotels, but in a city of “weird”, I think vacation rentals are the way to go. Skip the plain hotel room and opt instead for a tiny house, or a pad with eclectic decor, or a treehouse (just to name a few of the funky Airbnbs you can find in Portland.
These are the top 5 Unique Portland Airbnbs to rent on your next vacation to Oregon!

There’s also the famous Airbnb portland Oregon treehouse but you can only rent out a single room in the house instead of the whole space. We personally prefer renting an entire space for maximum privacy and comfort!
As you will notice during your Airbnb searches, there aren’t many Pearl District Airbnbs. The best Airbnb in downtown portland is probably this studio apartment. If you are dying to stay in the heart of downtown, you may want to book a hotel instead. But, if you’re ok staying in one of the funky neighborhoods of the city, book one of these fun vacation rentals in Portland!
