Of the many places that tourists frequently visit in Florida, it’s hard to think of a more popular one than Orlando. Though its countless theme parks are the main reason people visit, Orlando also offers some fantastic restaurants and lots of sports and recreation opportunities. But no matter why you’ve chosen to visit, the best Airbnbs in Orlando are sure to make your vacation an awesome one.
This list of Orlando Airbnbs includes only the best places to stay. We’ve found the top rentals with superhosts (hosts who consistently receive great reviews from guests) and several Airbnb Plus properties (spots Airbnb has verified for quality through in-person inspections).
Lakefront Apartment Near Universal Studios
If you want an Airbnb near Universal Studios in Orlando, you’ll feel like you’ve hit the jackpot with this apartment in the Florida Center neighborhood. Universal Studios is just a 10-minute drive away, and you can take the I-Ride Trolley to the Orange County Convention Center and local outlet malls.
Despite being a studio apartment, this Orlando Airbnb can sleep up to four guests, offering a sofa bed alongside the main queen bed. You won’t mind the apartment being a little cozy, as it has a relaxed, modern feel and is well equipped. If you do feel cramped, just step out onto the balcony and enjoy the view of the lake.
In case you don’t feel like preparing your own food in the kitchenette, there’s a breakfast buffet and a restaurant and bar in the resort complex. Other amenities from the resort include two pools, a gym, and free parking, not to mention the studio’s Wi-Fi and smart TV.
Carriage House at Country Club of Orlando
Who’d have thought that one of the best Orlando Airbnbs would be a charming little carriage house? But that’s exactly the case with this tiny house Airbnb in Orlando, located at the city’s country club near the downtown area. Even if you have no interest in golfing, you’re bound to enjoy this private retreat at the end of the day.
This pretty Airbnb earns the name of “The Little Treehouse 2” from the many plants around its gorgeous wooden interior, creating the illusion that you’re hidden away up in the trees. In reality, it’s more of a cabin or tiny house, making it a little more functional and accessible. Its studio layout centers on the four-poster queen bed and provides a cozy living area, where you can watch Netflix and Amazon Prime on the TV over the fireplace.
Given the house’s intimate design, it’s impressive that there’s enough room for a kitchenette with a minifridge, coffee maker, and microwave – though you might not even need it, as superhosts Dave and Jean provide breakfast each morning. Other perks include access to bicycles, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning.
Elegant Apartment in Winter Park
Not many vacation rentals in Orlando have quite as stylish a design as this modern two-bedroom apartment. It’s just outside of Orlando in downtown Winter Park, so you’ll have an easy walk to loads of shops and restaurants, not to mention the Winter Park Village shopping mall.
You’ll have no problem sleeping four people in this tasteful apartment. It has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and an en suite bathroom, providing private spaces for couples or friends traveling together. You can come together in the living area – where the corner table, couch, and breakfast bar offer ample seating space – or hang out on the balcony and enjoy the view.
This apartment is well suited for longer stays, thanks to its private laundry facilities and full kitchen with an oven, a microwave, a stove, and a dishwasher. You’ll also have shared access to the heated pool and hot tub, not to mention an outdoor grill and bikes for riding around. Naturally, there’s also cable TV and Wi-Fi, so you’ll never grow bored during your stay.
Mickey-Themed Getaway Next to Disney World
To round out your time visiting Disney World, why not stay in a Disney-themed Airbnb in Orlando? This condo is not only decorated completely around Mickey Mouse, but also just a two-minute drive from Disney World and other resorts. You also have easy access to local restaurants and supermarkets, as well as major highways in and out of the city.
While the condo only has one bedroom, it can accommodate up to four guests. You’ll find a queen bed in the bedroom, while the living room has a sofa bed, with doors to the bedroom providing some privacy at night. Adjacent to the living room is a large dining table and a full kitchen with a fridge, stove, and microwave, allowing you to prepare your own meals.
Besides the Wi-Fi and smart TV, the communal amenities are what make this Airbnb so great for families. There’s plenty here to entertain kids, including a pool, a basketball court, and an arcade. Adults aren’t left out either, with a hot tub, a gym, a barbecue area, and laundry facilities available for use.
Retro-Glam Apartment in Winter Park
This vacation apartment for rent in Orlando has such a chic and homey look that it’s hard to imagine not enjoying your stay here. It ticks another box with its location – a great part of Winter Park just a little outside Orlando. The neighborhood is known for its upscale boutiques and other shops, and you’ll find superb local restaurants just a short walk away.
Though it might not be obvious from the street, this stylish Airbnb Plus immediately makes you feel at home with its relaxed retro decor. Best for couples and young families, the apartment has just one bedroom with a queen bed, but there is a travel crib and highchair for little ones.
To beat the Florida heat, you’ll have air conditioning throughout the apartment and a ceiling fan in the bedroom. If you prefer to self-cater during your trip, the full kitchen with a range, fridge, and microwave is a real bonus. Other nice touches include Wi-Fi, free on-site parking, and the option to check yourself in.
Loft Apartment in Ivanhoe Village
Another downtown Orlando Airbnb that puts you in a great spot for sightseeing is this open-plan loft. The fun neighborhood of Ivanhoe Village just off Lake Ivanhoe is home to craft breweries and restaurants, while offering easy access to the very heart of Orlando.
The loft features a studio layout and a queen bed, making solo travelers and couples the best fit to stay here. That said, there’s quite a bit of space in this loft, and its tasteful, uncomplicated decor helps make it comfortable for a short or long stay.
Across from the bed is the living area, with a big couch and smart TV. There’s also a kitchen with an oven, a stove, a microwave, and a fridge, so you can cook whenever you don’t feel like going out. With other nice touches such as air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and keyless entry, this Airbnb is an incredible value for the price.
Cozy Garden Shed in Downtown Orlando
Finding a cheap Airbnb in Orlando isn’t always easy, so you won’t want to miss this cozy guesthouse. Here in the leafy, well-to-do neighborhood of College Park, you get the benefits of a quiet residential area with lots of quality shops and restaurants nearby. In other words, this is a great alternative to staying deep in downtown Orlando.
The guesthouse is right behind the home of superhost Rosy, but you’ll still have privacy, even when sitting in the garden’s little patio area. Once you step inside, though, it’s clear that the shed’s studio layout and queen bed will be most convenient for couples and solo travelers. Still, the crisp white interior and nice rustic touches create an inviting space that doesn’t feel cramped.
You should have no problem making breakfast or simple meals in the modest kitchenette with a stove, microwave, and minifridge. You also get some other amenities, including a ceiling fan (in lieu of air conditioning), a smart TV, Wi-Fi, and a little coffee and tea station.
Upscale Loft Close to Downtown
This sophisticated loft is easily one of the best Airbnb rentals in Orlando. Even its location is ideal, placing you in the convenient Colonial Town Center area. You can easily reach downtown, the foodie spots in the Milk District, and the art scene of Thornton Park from there.
Besides its location, what makes this flat so special is its sense of style and quality. Beautiful wooden details and tasteful furniture make the pristine interior feel warm and welcoming. While probably best for couples, the loft can sleep up to four people, thanks to its queen bed and pullout couch. The open layout feels quite spacious, with the kitchen and dining area off to the side.
Speaking of the kitchen, you’ll have no issues cooking for yourself with its high-end appliances, including a range, microwave, fridge, and dishwasher. No matter how long you stay, the loft has everything you need, including a washer and dryer, air conditioning, a smart TV, and Wi-Fi.
Tiny House at Lake Fairview
Few Airbnbs in Orlando fit so much into such a little space as this tiny house. Resting right on the shore of Lake Fairview, the rental offers plenty of outdoor space for relaxation and activities, both on land and in the water. Kayaking and fishing are particularly accessible, as superhost Adam provides the equipment for you.
As you enter this tiny house, it’s hard to believe that it can sleep up to five guests. There are two loft spaces, one with a double bed and one with a queen bed, while the couch downstairs can be made up to sleep one more person. You can even bring pets for an additional fee, so the whole family can come. Just don’t expect much privacy from each other, given the open floor plan and cozy design.
Despite the space constraints, the kitchen is quite roomy and well equipped with long counters, a large fridge, a stove cooktop, and a microwave. With all this and the outdoor barbecue grill, cooking won’t be a problem. Other amenities include TV, Wi-Fi, and access to a communal laundry room and gym.
Downtown Condo With Lake Eola View
If you need a short-term apartment rental in Orlando with a fantastic downtown location, this is it. You’ll be in the trendy neighborhood of Thornton Park with views of beautiful Lake Eola, mere steps from some of the city’s best attractions, restaurants, and nightlife.
The condo’s relaxed, modern vibe will instantly make you feel at home, while polished floorboards and art on the walls give it a hint of refinement.

Modern Suite for Large Groups in Pine Hills
Large groups hoping to rent an apartment in Orlando for a vacation should take a peek at this spacious house in the pleasant, residential neighborhood of Pine Hills. This area is especially nice if you want to avoid busier parts of the city, though you’ll still be only a 20-minute drive from downtown Orlando and just a little farther from Disney World and Universal Studios.
It’s not hard to see the appeal of this huge, modern guest suite that can sleep up to six people. It has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, including a master with an en suite bathroom and a private lounge area. There’s also a sofa bed in one of the two living rooms, giving your family or friend group plenty of space during your stay. It’s hard to believe that this is all just one floor of superhost Merline’s home; she lives in the apartment below, but you have your own entrance and won’t share any spaces.
The open-plan gourmet kitchen is fully equipped to support large groups. For your entertainment, there’s also Wi-Fi and a smart TV with Netflix.
Hogwarts-Themed Home Near Wizarding World Resort
Visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is special enough for most die-hard fans of the series, but this Orlando Airbnb takes your trip to the next level with its Hogwarts theme. With the Wizarding World of Harry Potter 10 miles away and Disney World just 6, it’s in a great location for visits to Orlando’s amusement parks.

The apartment occupies the lower level of superhosts Tom and Gordy’s home, but it has its own private entrance, so you’ll have no trouble keeping to yourself. You can also enjoy the shared backyard, pool, spa, and lakeside dock, which harbors a canoe you can take out on the water. It’s hard to believe you get all this while staying in such a central location.
With its king bed and cozy studio design, the guest suite is best for couples and solo travelers. It also has a relatively low ceiling, which could be problematic for tall guests. There are some great amenities in the room – including Wi-Fi and a 65-inch TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime, and DirecTV – but no kitchen, just a microwave and minifridge.
