Best Airbnb in Denver: 18 Great Options for Couples and Groups
One way to ensure your stay in the city is memorable is to choose a place to stay in one of the city’s best neighborhoods. We’ve spent a lot of time in Denver, and have stayed in some of the city’s best neighborhoods including LoDo, LoHi, and Berkeley Park.
We think those three, in addition to RiNo, the trendy hipster area, are the best spots to base yourself, so the options below are concentrated on those areas.
Cool Airbnbs in Denver for Couples
If you’re planning a getaway for two, here are eight great options for your trip to Denver.
Historic Carriage House in Denver’s Oldest Neighborhood
This place has to be a contender for best Airbnb in Denver! You’ll fall in love with this historic carriage house located mere blocks away from the charming River North Arts District.
In the late 1800s it was a stable used to shelter horses, and today, it brims with character and unique features, with exposed brick walls, repurposed wood and distressed furnishings.
In fact, the house is so unique it was featured in Architectural Digest online as Colorado’s most beautiful Airbnb!
Original elements blend with modern amenities. There’s a full kitchen where you can prepare food and dine, and a living room with TV, WiFi, leather sofa and a map of America made from vehicle license plates on the wall. The bedroom has windows facing the living room with quirky artwork and gas lamps adding to the atmosphere. The bathroom is fully equipped with amenities and there’s even a common area which includes gym equipment, a private hot tub and patio.
The house has access to free on-street parking, but if you don’t want to drive, you’re within a short walk of RiNo with its hip restaurants, breweries and shops.
A Tiny Slice of Heaven
We’re suckers for tiny homes, and we love this tiny, romantic studio set inside a shipping container (saved for our future forays into Colorado!).
We’ve actually stayed at one of this host’s properties before – this one, which is adjacent to the listing we’re talking about – and highly recommend both Sarsha’s places, and the location in Berkeley Park. It’s compact, stylish, and will make a great home base for exploring Denver.
It’s cozy – just 264 square feet in total – and is nestled in the trendy suburb of Berkeley Park, which is a great area for families visiting Denver. It’s within walking distance of Tennyson Street, one of the best streets in Denver for foodies, where you’ll find one of our favorite restaurants in the city – Vital Root.
The studio itself, located in the owner’s garden with a private entrance, is fully equipped with a queen bed, en-suite bathroom, smart TV and Wifi. There’s closet space for clothes, and a small, well-equipped kitchen from where you can serve takeout or prepare light snacks. After a day exploring Denver and its surroundings, you can return here to BBQ food on the private patio and relax beneath twinkling lights as the sun sets.
If you’re arriving in Denver by car, you can also benefit from free parking on the premises.
Beautiful Bungalow Half Duplex LoHi/Sunnyside Area
You’ll love this trendy bungalow/half duplex in LoHi/Sunnyside, a lovely neighborhood just across the river from the city center (it’s totally walkable).
We stayed in this area on our first ever trip to Denver, and usually find ourselves in the neighborhood whenever we’re in town. This place is within an easy walk of 50 amazing restaurants including Root Down (the best brunch in Denver), Acova (lots of veggie, vegan, gluten-free options), and Avanti Food & Beverage (a cool rooftop bar + food hall).
With one bedroom and one bathroom you’ll have the entire bungalow to yourselves for a cozy getaway.
Decorated in muted greys with wood floors and stylish furnishings, you’ll feel right at home in this bungalow. The living room/kitchen is fully equipped with a stove and oven, a dishwasher, and a big refrigerator. The bedroom is light and spacious with an en-suite bathroom.
There’s a bench on the patio outside where you can enjoy a chilled glass of wine at sunset, soaking up the LoHi atmosphere and you can benefit from free parking on-site.
In our opinion, this is one of the coolest Airbnbs in Denver based on the fantastic location and in-house amenities for couples.
King RiNo Private Yard
We love this renovated row house in Denver’s hip RiNo neighborhood. From here you can browse local markets, hang out at local breweries, and head to bars and restaurants like Barcelona Wine Bar and Shake Shack.
The clean, stylish house is thoughtfully decorated in cool shades with amenities catering to all – think split A/C, king size bed with Sealy iComfort mattress and a private yard for morning coffee and alfresco dining.
The open plan living room/kitchen has a loft-like vibe with exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, and a comfy sofa where you can curl up and watch movies. There’s WiFi if you need to check in with friends and a well-equipped kitchen where you can create your own culinary masterpieces.
The property is impressive, but the highlight is the location. There’s free on-street parking if traveling by car but you probably won’t need it during your stay as Larimer Street and RiNo are moments away.
Modern Guesthouse With Garage & Parking – Walk to RiNo
You’ll love this modern guesthouse less than two miles from downtown Denver. All the city landmarks and attractions are accessible by Light Rail which is a short walk away. You can walk to City Park, home to Denver Museum of Nature & Science and Denver Zoo, in around 20-25 minutes, and bars, breweries and restaurants of RiNo in 30 minutes.
A private bedroom with a king bed ensures you get a great night’s sleep, and if you want to cook, there’s a large kitchen equipped with everything you need for preparing a meal. The attention to detail in this guesthouse is second to none with a coffee bar, pillow choices, your own garage space, and a patio with BBQ grill overlooking the park!
Jog Around Berkeley Lake from a Charming Craftsman Home
We are fans of this charming craftsman home dating waaaaay back to 1906. The pretty house, painted in pastel blue, has been renovated throughout, showcasing a simultaneously modern-yet-vintage vibe.
It comfortably fits two people with one bedroom and one bathroom. It’s a compact spot with garden space and a patio where you can sip morning coffee, BBQ dinner or bask in the sunshine. Which, by the way, Denver has plenty of.
The living/dining area is light and airy decorated in cool colors, with a double bed, full kitchen and cozy dining area for two. There’s a full bathroom where you can refresh after a day of sightseeing and free parking on the premises. The property has good WiFi, if you plan to work during your stay, and air conditioning so you can stay warm in winter and cool in summer!
This home is close to Berkeley Lake with its hiking and jogging trails, Lakeside Amusement Park, and Oriental Theater, a live music venue. There are great restaurants and cafes within walking distance too along Tennyson Street, including Amethyst Coffee Lakeside, which is one of our favorite coffee shops in Denver.
Cozy Neighborhood Spot Close to Downtown
This cozy neighborhood house is bursting with character, featuring wood accent walls, warm décor and chic furnishings.
There’s space to cook and prepare meals in the kitchen, you can curl up to a good movie on the sofa or relax in the (purple!) claw foot bath tub after a day exploring Denver! The bedroom is decorated in cool blues – perfect for inducing deep slumber, and if you’re traveling by car, you can park on the street outside.
The property itself is situated on a family-friendly street in Sunnyside, within walking distance to cafes, yoga studios, and Rocky Mountain Lake. For foodies, there are several restaurants within a short walk, and you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Highlands area, where you’ll find all sorts of good food and drink options.

The owners have installed a composting toilet for sustainability, the property has WiFi, and you can bring your dogs with you for an additional $25 cleaning fee per pet. If you’re planning to rent a car in Denver, you’ll avoid dealing with street parking thanks to the free parking on the premises.
