This large, roomy, and comfortable shared living space is a common area for all guests. Make yourself feel at home and perform a little song on the mini stage. How cool is that?! The back wall of the living room is also tastefully decorated with a fiber optic cityscape of fireworks.

6. Modern "passive" house (92 USD)

Certified as one of the most energy-efficient houses in the United States, this “passive house” means it is primarily heated by the sun and stays warm or cool with the help of airtight insulation.

Designed and built by PDX Living, the home has been featured in a variety of publications, has been used as a film set, and has been showcased on tours sponsored by the Earth Advantage Institute. A heat-recovery ventilation system delivers fresh, filtered air to each room in the home 24/7/365, great for those with allergies. Some reclaimed features of this house are the crate hardwood floors, high-efficiency multi-colour indirect lighting, custom fixtures throughout, and twist-and-turn triple-pane windows. Embrace Portland in all of its beauty as you chill out on the deck and wave hello to the neighbours across the street!
