- One of the Rockies’ premier destinations, Denver offers a mix of urban attractions and outdoor fun.
- Attracting both visitors and permanent remote workers, short and long-term Airbnbs are in demand.
- We found some of the best Denver Airbnbs at a range of price points, from $133 to $595 per night.
Denver is one of the fastest-growing cities in the US and its population has been steadily increasing over the last few years. It’s no surprise given that The Mile High City is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and receives roughly 300 days of sunshine per year. With the increase of people flocking to live in Denver, improved and expanded infrastructure has followed, which in turn has seduced tourism in greater numbers than ever. Plus, Denver is the perfect launchpad for reaching the Rockies.
There are many great hotels in Denver, but Airbnbs are a competitive and, in many cases, more affordable option.
Thanks to the variety of architectural styles that can be found all over the city, the Denver Airbnb inventory has something that will suit just about any type of traveler. Just be aware that because Denver has become a desirable place to visit or relocate to, some of the city’s best Airbnb rentals can be booked out for months at a time, while others require longer minimum-night stays.

This three-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom rental features an Instagrammable aesthetic that mixes vintage design with modern amenities. The hardwood floors and exposed brick walls are accented with antique finds like supple leather love seats, cowhide area rugs, decorative Old World suitcases, a map of the US made of license plates, a chandelier of bare light bulbs, and a dining table made from reclaimed wood. There’s a fun discovery in just about every corner.
There’s a separate TV room for lounging and the chef’s kitchen offers plenty of space and modern appliances. The backyard, complete with a grill, is a wonderful retreat for weekend brunch or an end-of-day glass of wine.
A modern condo with a balcony downtown
Centrally located just minutes away from Coors Field, staying at this stylish condo means being surrounded by numerous walkable attractions, from breweries and restaurants to roller coasters and ball games.
The apartment’s open floor plan instantly shows off its charming design features, like the marble-top kitchen island (big enough for a quick meal), the monochromatic color scheme, the vintage-looking area rugs and hide carpet, and the thoughtfully selected potted plants. There are two modestly-sized bedrooms both decorated with a minimalist touch. The bathroom includes a tub and a washer and dryer, which are especially convenient for longer stays.
Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, this industrial-chic apartment is able to take full advantage of Denver’s famed sunshine. But there’s also a furnished balcony if being directly out in the sun is more your speed.
A romantic Victorian home with a porch in Curtis Park
This picturesque one-bedroom home is a stunning medley of Old World elements, from its tall bay windows and intricate molding work to gorgeous, patterned hardwood floors. But there’s plenty of contemporary interior decor too. The owners of the house layered on lovely design details like bubble chandeliers, sculptural leather dining chairs, a midcentury coffee table, and striking works of art like a longhorn wall fixture and framed black-and-white pieces. Plants throughout add a green touch to every room.
In keeping with the romantic, throwback experience, there’s also a standalone clawfoot tub in the bathroom. And perhaps the best amenity is the front porch with its hanging, swinging chair. Location-wise, this house is in Curtis Park, a quieter neighborhood right next to the buzzing streets of RiNo Arts District.

For families with little ones, a collection of baby accessories (high chair, pack-and-play crib, toys) are available.
It’s important to note that this rental is tucked inside a century-old mansion. The owner occupies the upper floors of the building, but the apartment has its own entrance and nothing (except the large backyard) is shared space; it even comes with its own laundry appliances.

But overall, there’s a charming, subtle design scheme meant to evoke countryside relaxation whether you’re lounging on the couch in front of the indoor fireplace or soaking in the sun outside. There’s a private yard with a hammock and a charming patio shaded by a big leafy tree and overlooking a seasonal creek.

There are two bedrooms with Queen-size beds, and the house comes with many family-friendly amenities including a playpen, crib, high chair, and a variety of children’s toys.
The property is located in the quiet neighborhood of Whittier, but RiNo’s trendy bars, City Park’s restaurant scene, and the Denver Zoo are all close by.
An architect-owned house in Lincoln Park
Located just southwest of Denver’s Central Business District, this two-bedroom rental is surrounded by tons of quirky boutiques, cool art galleries, and restaurants for all tastes and budgets.
Once a 19th-century railroad worker’s house, this unit was modernized for the contemporary traveler with an eye for design. The original bones, including exposed wood beams and handsome brick walls, have been thoughtfully complemented with sculptural coffee tables, a plush bright green sofa, framed landscape art, and colorful locally made textile. There are two bedrooms, one of which is located in the loft and comes with a skylight.
The whole house is very cozy thanks to the indoor fireplace, plus a bathroom with heated floors and a fabulous soaking tub. There’s even a cute nook with a desk in case guests need to get work done during their stay.
This property is designed in partnership with The Sursy, a local design and hospitality startup, which means almost everything in the house is for sale in case you fall in love with any particular elements.
A five-bedroom home downtown
Located in the heart of Denver with easy access to some of the city’s most dynamic neighborhoods, this five-bedroom home is an excellent lodging choice for a multi-generational family trip or a traveling pod.

Other amenities include a large family room, a washer and dryer, on-property parking, and a patio with a grill.
Design-wise, the house is decorated with rustic details to evoke a modern farmhouse feel. Think beautiful hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, glistening pendant lighting over the bar-top kitchen counter, and mix-and-match dining room furniture. While the property itself is located on a quiet street, its central location makes countless sights, like the 16h Street Mall, Coors Field, and City Park, easily accessible.
