Check out our top picks for the best Airbnbs in Tulsa, Oklahoma!
Stones Throw Bungalow with Sun Porch & King Bed
Type: Entire Home (2BR, 1B)
Location: 10 minutes from Downtown and Route 66
This low-price, high-value Tulsa vacation rental puts many of the area’s luxury properties to shame with its elegant, black-white-and-gray interior.
Featuring two double beds and a king bed, a luxurious kitchen, and bathroom tiles so shiny you won’t even need a mirror, this bungalow is the perfect budget family retreat. No expenses were spared in making the dining area as lavish as can be, and the stylish living room might just give you some ideas on how to spruce up your own home!
Then, there’s the sunroom at the entrance and the spacious front lawn – you’ll have a hard time getting your children out of the house to explore the amazing attractions that Downtown Tulsa has to offer.
Why We Love It: Breathtakingly beautiful house that offers everything you could need at an affordable price.
What Past Guests Have Said: “Very comfortable and convenient house. Checking in and out was hassle free. Highly recommend!”
“If you want to stay in a place that truly feels like home while you’re in Tulsa, this is it. After our first day, my son asked if we could stay there indefinitely. We had everything we needed, the space was immaculate and the comfort is just what we needed after a long drive. Thanks for hosting us!”
The Artist’s Apartment
Type: Entire Home (1BR, 1B)
Location: Country Club Heights
If you can’t seem to find the inspiration to finish the last chapter of your novel, you might just find it at this amazing vacation rental in Tulsa.
A serene, beautifully decorated getaway that can double as a workstation, the house has a queen bed (with additional couches for a slightly larger group), a solid kitchen, and a “creative nook” with an impressive vinyl collection. Also, when the bathroom murals are more intricate than most houses’ living room decor, you know you’re in for something special!
To get your creative cogs spinning even faster, step out into the historic Country Club Heights neighborhood, one of the most awe-inspiring parts of Tulsa.
Why We Love It: Wonderful apartment that can bring out the best in its artistically gifted guests.
What Past Guests Have Said: “Steve is a fascinating person and gracious host. The apartment is like a micro museum and simply charming.”
“Steve’s place is one of a kind! Expect to be cozy and inspired. Just a two minute walk from a lovely neighborhood cafe as well.”
“Steve’s place is always a fun treat. He is an incredible host with a beautiful space. We love visiting Steve’s place and exploring Tulsa!”
Perfectly Located Modern Loft
Type: Entire Home (1BR, 1B)
Location: Downtown, Blue Dome District
Keeping things simple yet incredibly elegant, this Tulsa Airbnb apartment puts you in the heart of the action – the city’s Downtown region.
Chances are you’ll be spending most of your time in the living room/kitchen area, owing to the abundance of open space and the incredible floor-to-ceiling window view of the Blue Dome District. Despite being minimalist in a way, the apartment is so well put together that adding anything would only detract from the experience.
After running errands and walking around Tulsa, nothing beats a walk-in shower and a comfortable sleep in one of two queen beds. If all that sightseeing doesn’t tucker you out, you can swing by the downstairs fitness area and work up a sweat.
Why we love it: Eye-catching apartment with a great location and plenty of open space.
What Past Guests Have Said: “The space was perfect! Super clean, fast wifi, and in a central location. We hardly even had to use our car since it was so centrally located.”
“Perfect Airbnb and perfect host. I can’t say enough about how stylish the space is, how comfortable the bed is, and how kind and courteous Jessi is. Always quick to respond and in a cheerful manner! I’ll be back soon I hope. Don’t hesitate to book!”
Type: Entire Home (2BR, 1B)
Location: 5 minutes from Downtown, across the street from the Tulsa Expo Center
Cleanliness is next to godliness, and that’s definitely the MO when it comes to this incredible vacation rental in Tulsa.
The best way to describe the rental would be “Grandma’s house if Grandma were in her thirties today.” The old-school kitchen and mudroom are top-notch, there’s plenty of sunlight pouring into every room, and the queen bed/ two single beds configuration is perfect for the average family. In keeping with the homely ambiance, you can even bring your furry friends along with you, as this rental is pet friendly!
The juxtaposition of old-school and modern makes the place equal parts farmhouse and city suite. Close to the downtown area yet safely tucked into a quiet neighborhood, this is the ideal house for a first-time visitor of Tulsa.
Why We Love It: One of the quintessential family rentals of its price range in Tulsa.
Apartment at the Peacock Plantation
Type: Entire Home (1BR, 1B)
Location: Reservoir Hill, just outside of Downtown Tulsa
In Tulsa’s Reservoir Hill area lies one of the city’s most interesting rentals: a fabulous house at the Peacock Plantation.
Who could resist that charming kitchen, the amazing walk-in shower, and not to mention, the artistic touches that make the interior pop? The house is ideal for a couple looking for a quiet getaway, but can comfortably fit a third person thanks to the sleeper sofa.
Decidedly different from most Tulsa vacation rentals (and that’s saying something), the place’s main draw is the exterior. You can enjoy a drink on the gorgeous porch, roam the courtyard as you listen to the relaxing sounds of the fountain, or go looking for the property’s titular peacocks!
Why We Love It: Vibrant, colorful house with a one-of-a-kind ambiance.
What Past Guests Have Said: “Eric’s place was a wonderful place to stay! It was very clean, stylish and just a few minutes away from downtown. I’ll definitely try to stay here again and would recommend to friends!”
“Eric’s place was perfect! Very cute neighborhood, super clean and had everything we needed. Would stay again!”
“Wonderful little place! Loved the neighborhood and proximity to downtown. We had a relaxing stay. Eric was communicative and helpful. Would recommend.”
Mom’s L’il Chateau at Magnolia House
Type: Entire Home (3BR, 2B)
Location: Swan Lake, just south of Downtown
Designed with family vacationing in mind, this Tulsa vacation rental is one of the city’s most inviting rentals.
The earth colors of the furniture and the warm light of the chandeliers give this house its distinctive vibe. Boasting a great kitchen, amazing balcony views, and even a jacuzzi bathroom, this vintage chateau is ideal for a couple with up to 3 kids.
With everything from plushies for your children to a large patio for starting off your day, the house is truly one of Tulsa’s best. The iconic Swan Lake district is the icing on the cake – be sure to check out some of the innumerable parks and historic buildings in the area!
Why We Love It: Warm and pleasant house that’s bound to evoke feelings of home.
What Past Guests Have Said: “Loved our stay at Wendy’s L’il Magnolia House and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Tulsa. Its in a beautiful historic neighborhood centrally located to great coffee shops, restaurants and shopping. You can expect wonderful hospitality and great communication from Wendy! Will definitely remember this for future trips to Tulsa!!”“”
1920’s drenched in Charm
Type: Entire Home (3BR, 1.5B)
Location: Several minutes from Downtown Tulsa
The hypnotizing swirl of colors is just one in a long list of reasons to consider this amazing, spacious Tulsa vacation rental. From the open-floor living/dining area to the large kitchen, every nook and cranny radiates positive energy.
This throwback rental takes things to the next level with its vibrant furniture, beautifully accented by the hardwood flooring. Gather your group of up to 7 people around the fireplace, or enjoy the fresh air on the patio – the bungalow is so great that even the bathroom is to die for!
Finally, there’s amazing connectivity – located near the highway, the house makes getting to Tulsa Hills, Downtown Tulsa, and the Gathering Place easy and convenient.
Why We Love It: Charming rental that dares to do something different style-wise and pulls it off with gusto.
What Past Guests Have Said: “Jennifer was such a kind and understanding host. This house is beautiful and in close proximity to anything you may need. Highly recommend!”
“The house was very cute and clean! Loved the decorations and tons of space. Quiet neighborhood not far from downtown.”
“Our large family with multiple children had a blast at Jennifer’s place! The space was well-decorated, clean, and comfortable. We only wish we could have stayed long”
Buck’s Cosmic Crash Pad on Route 66
Type: Entire Home (3BR, 1.5B)
Location: Meadow Gold District
Route 66 is one of Oklahoma’s most historically significant draws, and this amazing vacation rental in Tulsa, located just east of Downtown, successfully capitalizes on that.
This rental is as much of a gallery as it is a vacation home. Aside from being a shrine to the Mother Road, what makes the place special is that a lot of the art in the house is for sale, allowing guests to bring home a piece of Oklahoma with them.
As far as amenities go, the porch is spacious, the kitchen has everything you need, and the house can accommodate as many as 6 people. What’s more, the open floor plan makes it feel like a bona fide art expo – you can have fun just walking around the house and looking at all the amazing decorations!
Why We Love It: Unique property that offers a comfortable stay and the chance to buy historic memorabilia.
What Past Guests Have Said: “This place was perfect! Fantastic location, adorably decorated, amazing service, and very clean! Will definitely recommend to anyone visiting Tulsa or to residents who want a fun staycation for a night or two! So close to downtown and Cherry Street!”
“Super cute and in a great part of town! Everything about the stay was easy and as expected.”
Type: Entire Home (3 BR, 2B)
Location: Midtown Tulsa
Sporting a similar style to the second property on our list (and arguably even more pizazz), this Tulsa vaca is bound to get your creative juices flowing.
The living room is a great place to kill an afternoon with a good book. This room bleeds into the stylish kitchen and TV room, but if you ask us, admiring the artwork beats watching TV by a long shot!
The house can sleep up to 6 people between its 3 bedrooms, and the artsy atmosphere carries over to these rooms as well (look at that gilded ceiling in the woodland bedroom!).
On top of the bungalow being close to loads of major attractions in Midtown Tulsa, the neighborhood itself will make you want to pack up your bags and move to Oklahoma.
Why We Love It: Beautifully decorated house in an amazing neighborhood.
What Past Guests Have Said: “This was a truly fabulous house!! Absolutely amazing art and atmosphere. This will definitely be my new go to anytime I am in Tulsa. Wonderful location as well.”
“Johns place was spotless and was a perfect venue for our girls getaway to celebrate my Moms 60th Birthday. There were so many neat touches about this AirBNB – we really did enjoy our stay here and would stay again in a heartbeat. This house is a must if you are visiting the Tulsa, OK area.”
The Riley House
Type: Entire Home (3BR, 3B)
Location: Just north of Downtown Tulsa
If we had to describe this Tulsa vacation home in one word, it would be “serene”. Featuring a white-and-blue palette, a fancy kitchen, a front porch with rocking chairs, and more windows than you can shake a stick at, the house will relax you as few others can.
The interior as a whole is incredibly spacious, courtesy of the open floor plan. For fun, you can gather on the back porch and whip up some barbecue, or grab a game from the antique hutch if you’re feeling competitive.
On top of keeping you invigorated in the daytime, the colors will put you right to sleep at night. You and up to 5 other guests will fall right asleep in a sea of white after a day on your feet downtown (which is right around the corner).
Why We Love It: Comfortable house with a unique, calming atmosphere.
What Past Guests Have Said: “The Riley House was perfect for a girls’ weekend getaway! It was perfectly clean and beautifully decorated. The location was convenient for having dinner and drinks downtown and hopping on Riverside or the highway to get anywhere else we decided to go. We had a great time and would absolutely stay here again!”
“The house was in a great location and adorable. We had a great time and would highly recommend the place to friends and family. It is perfect for a girls’ weekend!!”
Brookside Beauty The Gathering Place
Type: Entire Home (3BR, 2.5B)
Location: Brookside neighborhood, just east of the Arkansas River
This Tulsa vacation rental is almost cathedral-like in its style and presentation. Heavily featuring white, beige, and everything in between, this house goes above and beyond to make you feel like royalty.
Open-concept living is a bit of an acquired taste, but with a kitchen this incredible and a living room so bright and inviting, it’s hard to imagine anyone turning up their nose at this place.
Whenever you’re not out exploring Tulsa (and there’s plenty to see, what with The Gathering Place being so close), you can enjoy a game of foosball, board hockey, or table tennis in the garage. Once you’ve had your fill of action for the day, the three extremely cozy bedrooms will practically be calling your name!
Why We Love It: Probably the most conventionally elegant vacation home in all of Tulsa.
What Past Guests Have Said: “The house had everything we needed for the weekend—great amenities, fun game room, good location, and very clean.”
“This is a great place close to the river pathway and many other stores, restaurants and of course the Gathering Place is fantastic!”
“Awesome place clean and is in a great location don’t hesitate to book it’s amazing.”
MR LUXE Haus
Type: Entire Home (3BR, 3B)
Location: Maple Ridge
There are no gimmicks when it comes to this Airbnb in Tulsa… It does what it’s supposed to do, and it does it well.
Whether you’re enjoying the view of the city from the patio or playing a game with your family in the front room, you can rest assured you’ll be doing it in style. If you don’t plan on eating at any of the nearby downtown locales, the amazing kitchen and back deck grill is bound to keep you well-fed.
This house can be enjoyed by up to 8 guests, owing to the wide variety of bed choices. If you need to separate yourself from your group for a while, you can stay in the bedroom of the carriage house out back.
Why We Love It: Cozy house that can accommodate a lot of people and give each of them their share of privacy.
What Past Guests Have Said: “If you love a great location, soft sheets and a kitchen made for a chef Emily’s is your place. Highly recommend, Holly Lynn”
“House is clean as a whistle, lots of amenities and extras. Everything you could ever want in the kitchen and stocked pantry. I love to cook and could not believe the gourmet utensils and pans for your use. Bed was super comfortable, also. Loved the house and the location.”
Type: Entire Home (6BR, 3.5B)
Location: Minutes from downtown Tulsa
T-Town has no shortage of high-end properties, but this Tulsa vacation rental cranks the dial up to eleven in practically every way.
A quick glance at the 42-foot-long living area should give you an idea of what you’re in for. This gorgeous room can fit a whopping 30 people! The kitchen is very well-equipped yet compact, in the interest of freeing up space for the dining room, breakfast room, and a room we couldn’t even begin to name, that overlooks the outdoor swimming pool.
There’s enough bedding for 14 people to sleep in this incredible house, and each bedroom has its own unique flair… Our favorite would have to be the elegant Paris room!
On top of being 5 minutes from downtown, the Abbey is partnered with Top Flight to provide guests with the smoothest Tulsa transportation ever.
Why We Love It: Stylish, gigantic property fit for large gatherings.
What Past Guests Have Said: “This home is gorgeous and clean! It had everything we needed and I would recommend it to big groups. We stayed in the winter so we weren’t able to take advantage of the pool, but that would have been super fun in the summer!”
“Kelly is great and always quick with her response to messages. The house is great for a big group, lots of space and very comfortable. The only issue we had was with the bathrooms. They are really really old and need to be upgraded!”
Adobe Bungalow & Pool
Type: Entire Home (2BR, 2B)
Location: Downtown Tulsa
Anyone who’s ever vacationed in New Mexico or Central America will feel right at home in this spectacular Tulsa vacation rental.
Pictures hardly do this adobe house justice – the colorful den and living area are unlike anything else in Oklahoma, and you get to share this beautiful property with 3 of your loved ones. In addition, you’ll have access to a state-of-the-art kitchen, and those 2 beds are every bit as comfortable as they look!
The courtyard would have been amazing in and of itself but coupled with the swimming pool, it truly makes for the perfect summertime idyll.
Lastly, the location combines the convenience of downtown living with picturesque vistas along the Arkansas River – all you need is a bicycle, and you’ll be good to go!
Why We Love It: Impossibly inviting rental that dares to be different and is all the better for it.
What Past Guests Have Said: “Simply put…Angie’s place is fantastic. Its a quiet, stylish oasis in the heart of Tulsa. Great kitchen, outside areas and comfortable rooms. i would recommend a stay at Angie’s place to anyone looking to spend time in Tulsa!”
“Pool is amazing! You’ll want to spend all the time in the water!”
“Pool is so perfect this time of year. Location is awesome. House is amazing. I’m a repeat customer!”
Type: Entire Home (3BR, 3B)
Location: 1 mile from The Gathering Place
Although it’s definitely on the expensive side, this Tulsa vacation rental stands out as one of the city’s finest, both in terms of amenities and design.
Whether you’re planning a romantic getaway or are looking to spend time with your friends, the gorgeous living area and its outdoor counterpart will leave a lasting impression. The kitchen is bathed in sunlight and equipped with some of the sleekest appliances we’ve seen, and two of the three bedrooms take you directly to the amazing courtyard.
On top of everything, the best places in town are within walking distance: the Tulsa River Park and The Gathering Place are practically in your backyard!
Why We Love It: Immeasurably stylish apartment in the heart of Tulsa.
