Vancouver, USA has a few things in common with its northern neighbour in British Columbia. Both are named after the same man - respected sea captain George Vancouver, who explored and established trading posts in both places - however, this Vancouver is older. Both are known for a relaxed, laid-back way of life. Both are also excellent places to spend a while on holiday, and it is on the US version, located in Washington state, that we’ll focus on. From visiting historic sites such as Fort Vancouver National Historic Site to kayaking on Vancouver Lake, there are endless things to do and places to see in this city. The laid-back lifestyle also makes Vancouver, Washington, a great place to look for rooms to rent online. These top Airbnb rentals in downtown Vancouver will make your holiday a more enjoyable one.
This rental is perfect for families or larger traveling parties. Close to Portland International airport, the house has everything you could want from a holiday home including lots of outdoor space and proximity to a park. There’s room here for six people in all, although if you’re traveling alone or as a couple, the place isn’t so large as to be overwhelming. The watchword here is “Make yourself at home”.

There are few things more “Vancouver” than a rustic, hand-built cottage where even the bed is built from reclaimed pallets. One warning: if you want to stay in glamor and luxury, look elsewhere. This is a more earthy experience - literally, as the cottage was built from earth - but it’s far from unpleasant if you’re a solo traveller who can get into the spirit.

This rental is a detached cottage off a main house and is large enough for four people, and offers free WiFi and a TV with cable. You’ll also have access to a mini fridge in your room, a private bathroom to yourself and, if needed, the host will throw in an air mattress for guests. The cottage itself is located in a peaceful, quiet neighborhood - so parties are a no-no, but a sound, relaxing stay is very much on the cards.

Staying in this room, you’ll be struck by a few things: first, the comfort and opulence of the bed, with 600-thread count sheets and a 100% cotton duvet cover. Secondly, you’ll notice just how very Vancouver the apartment is, with musical touches all over the living room including a baby grand piano and a range of drums. With earth crystals and a space for yoga and meditation, this is a rental designed with wellness in mind, and we dare anyone to leave feeling less than relaxed.
The owner of this rental explains that he wanted the living room to feel “like you’re in a room that was chiseled out of the side of a copper-rich mountain”. It’s up to you to decide whether he succeeded, but one thing is for sure - it’s comfortable and luxurious in a way few other rentals can match. The owner and his family like to socialize with their guests, including around campfires built in their fire pit, and the whole vibe is welcoming and communal. And, yes, they offer off-street parking for all guests.
Sleeping in the Clouds
Don’t worry if the idea of a converted RV as a vacation rental sounds risky - a lot of converting has been done to turn this into a luxurious rental, with new floors, a renovated kitchen area and hand-crafted natural materials throughout. It’s equipped with storage heaters and a wood-burning stove - because Vancouver gets cold in the winter - but if you’re up for a glamping kind of experience, this is a wonderful place to experience it. There’s musical equipment installed too - so if the Beatles connection is for you, it’s a perfect place to stay.
This spacious condo in the heart of Vancouver is a great place to stay for those who want to experience the vibrant city life. It has a double bed, a single bed, and a sofa bed that can comfortably sleep up to five adults. Children’s tableware, high chair, and travel cot are available in the property as well, adding convenience to those who are traveling with kids. A full kitchen ensures you can prepare meals indoors with ease. Free car parking is available for guests traveling by car.
