The city of Portland, Oregon allows Accessory Short-Term Rentals. The term accessory emphasizes that the primary use of the property (or rental) is a long term occupancy, and only part of the property is used for renting.

The regulation allows for partial home rentals lasting fewer than 30 days, or in other buildings on the land where the long term occupant resides. Whole home rentals are not permitted. The owner must reside permanently on the property for at least 270 days of the year and they are permitted to rent through an agent or property management company. The owner must apply for a permit and will need this approved permit number when registering for the state Transient Lodging Tax. There are differing permitting processes based on the number of bedrooms for rent.
