Interaction with Guests
We live on the floor located above this room and work from home so we often run into our guests and are always available for questions. However, there are many times when schedules do not align and we miss our housemates entirely. We can adjust to your needs and provide as much or as little space as you prefer.
Do note that you might run into another Airbnb guest who is staying in a private room on the same floor and sharing the bathroom.
Our neighborhood is diverse and friendly with quaint vintage shops, quirky bars and excellent restaurants. It is conveniently located near I-5 and public transport.
Just 5 miles north of Downtown and nestled in the historic Kenton community close to shops and dining, we are within easy walking distance to public transit (Yellow Max line and several buses) and a quick 10 minute car ride downtown with great N/S-bound freeway access.
We are about 25-35 minutes away from downtown by bus or Yellow Max train line. Both are within six blocks of the house with a bus stop less than a block away.
Bus: 4 and 75 are less than a block away and the Yellow Max line is only 6 blocks from the house. All will take you downtown in about 25-35 minutes.
Car: Parking is free and easy curbside at the house.
We are in the Car2Go zone and several Zipcars are in the neighborhood making shared transportation readily available.
Airport: From the airport, take a taxi for $20-30 and spend 20 minutes or take the Red Max train from the airport to the Rose Quarter and change to the Yellow Max train to Kenton Station then walk to the house. It usually takes 1-1.5 hours and costs $2.50.

Maylene and Charity were great. The room was very comfortable and as was the rest of the house! The house is in a great location and it only took us about 5-10 minutes to commute to Downtown which was very nice.
Listing was wonderful and very clean. Host made it awesome to stay super friendly. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay the bed was very comfy and we got to watch a movie that we had never seen. Wonderful hospitality and host made it very easy to locate cooking supplies with labels and was very easy to get in contact with.
Our experience at Maylene and Charity's house was one of hospitality and comfort. We enjoyed the beautiful decor and the cute neighborhood. We were sad that our time was so short.
Had the most amazing time staying at their home:) they were super helpful and super friendly and overall great people to be around :) their house was adorable and the vibes were good :)
I stopped in Portland for a brief night, and their place was as cute as can be. The booking process was super easy and It looked exactly as the pictures, very clean and the bed was very comfortable. I met Marlene, and she was very friendly... And she recommended up some places to eat for the night. I would def stay with them again.
Our hosts were sweet and very helpful. They had plenty of suggestions for places to eat, great shopping, and sight-seeing. The house was lovely, so well decorated and very clean. They have lots of gorgeous items from where they've traveled, so staying with these two is an experience in itself.

We are high school sweethearts who met in Japan over 20 years ago. Many areas of our home are strongly influenced by our time there. We share a common passion for travel and haven't seen nearly enough of the world yet! One day we'd like to compete and WIN on The Amazing Race.
We were inspired to Airbnb after first using the service in Hong Kong with our family. We had such a great experience we said that if we ever had the opportunity, we'd love to host ourselves. At the time we were renting a condo but found ourselves unexpectedly in the market for a house right after our trip. We were happy to find the perfect spot to share with other travelers and family members of our neighbors.
Small business owners and entrepreneurial folk, we work from home so we're available for questions and referrals.
In our free time you'll find us planning our next big adventure, binging on YouTube videos, stretched out on a yoga mat, or curled up with a good book.
