This is one of the two master bedrooms on the second floor of our 2008 home in Northeast Portland, and it has a private bathroom with a shower attached.
Come stay in a bright bedroom with a queen-size bed, built-in closet, and a nightstand. It's on the upper level of our townhouse.
The attached bathroom has a shower and skylight (for observing the gray Portland skies or rare but delicious sunshine). Downstairs you'll find a spacious kitchen, and you're welcome to have breakfast here. You can also store your picnic ingredients or leftovers from your Portland food scene explorations in our fridge.
Walk out the door and you're about half way between Alberta Street (think coffee shops, bars, boutiques, and the notorious Last Thursday extravaganzas) and the Woodlawn neighborhood (more coffee, and a brewery).
The bus to downtown leaves about three block from our doorstep, and you can also walk to the yellow line MAX. There's an easy bike route to downtown, too.
There's a cute grocery coop on Alberta (about 10-15 minutes walking), and a supermarket about three blocks away in case you need any essentials. During the summer, there is a farmer's market nearby every Sunday morning.
Free street parking is available on our block.
Anything we didn't cover here? Please feel free to message us with questions.
You can access the kitchen in the mornings and use our pans, plates, cups etc. for your breakfast.
You're welcome to store picnic supplies or breakfast ingredients in our fridge, too.
Interaction with Guests
We are usually here when you arrive to welcome you, answer questions, and share recommendations. With some guests we've had coffee and conversations, others we barely see during their stay - we're OK with different levels of interactions, depending on what works for each guest. In case anything comes up, you're welcome to call or text me (Andrea).
We have a lot of bus stops within walking distance; free street parking is available on our block. From the airport, you'd take the MAX (commuter train) to the Convention Center stop and the number 6 bus from there. It stops within two blocks from our place.
Other Things to Note
Just wanted to mention again that we have an indoor/outdoor cat. She usually doesn't get into the room we are talking about here.
No pets, and no smoking.
Andrea replied within one hour to confirm the booking and was very flexible with check in time - very communicative. She and Bryan were home to cheerfully welcome us on arrival and later walked us to a neighbourhood pub where Jane & I had dinner. Our walk was a chance to chat and become familiar with the charming, quiet residential neighbourhood.
The room and attached bathroom were clean, bright, comfortable and exactly as advertised...also WiFi. Very easy driving access to downtown Portland and within walking distance to nice shops & restaurants. This was our first experience with Airbnb - affordable, pleasant and we recommend it!
Andrea was an amazing host. The place was really clean, the room was very quiet and private, and Andrea was extremely nice and helpful! Only wish we could have spent more time there!! Would definitely stay there again!
Andrea and Bryan were amazing hosts! We had a great experience with Airbnb as it was our first time, and couldn't have picked a greater host. Very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. Their home is very relaxing and therapeutic, made it a great place to come back from our adventures. We weren't able to spend too much time getting to know Andrea & Bryan but the little time we had felt like we were catching up with old friends. Will definitely recommend if your looking for a true Portland Airbnb experience!
Andrea was a great host. She made contact with us right away and made sure we were able to check in easily and was flexible about the time. The room was exactly as described, very clean and comfortable. The house was very quiet while we were there. The neighborhood was fine, not great for walking but super close to a lot of great spots if you are driving. This was a great air B&B experience.
Andrea is very welcoming. The room and bathroom were just as pictured, roomy, clean and comfortable! We were there just a short time but enjoyed our stay! Thank you!
Overall great experience with Andrea. She was very flexible with check-in time which was nice as we didn't know what time we'd arrive. Room was squeaky clean and we felt welcomed. Love that there is a private bathroom with a shower, though we didn't use it. The room is very simple, and the location is convenient. Lots of nice places to eat in the area. Highly recommend. Great Value!
Andrea and Brian are great hosts! My husband and I stayed with them for a few days and it was a great experience. We not only enjoyed their beautiful, clean, cozy home... we enjoyed meeting them. It was a private place to relax and rejuvenate while traveling and where we were also able to have meaningful and engaging conversations with two bright-minded, kind-hearted people. It was a pleasure to stay with them and we highly recommend staying here when visiting Portland.
