Apartment - Private room · Southwest Laurel Street, Portland, OR 97201, United States

Light and bright cozy old style Portland apartment in Portland Hights. Quiet and Great Location! Walking distance to 23th/21st, PSU, Farmers market, Portland Art Museum, Pearl District. Portland best parks, biking, and hiking trails are easily accessible. So are the Rose Gardens, the Zoo, Japanese Gardens, and Powells bookstore.

The Space

Comfortable double size bed and an extra twin size bed if needed. A quiet retreat above the city with all the perks of city life just walking minutes away! Lots of hills and great views so prepare yourself with great walking shoes or you can always drive the two minute down/up the hill.

Guest Access

You will have access to a comfortable living room, or can retreat to your own cozy bedroom. There is two bathrooms in this apartment, so you will have your own bathroom. However, the shower will be shared. You will have access to the kitchen, a shelf in the fridge and an empty cupboard for all your organic farmers market produce.

Our renowned soccer team plays at Jed-wen field which is in walking distance, and this apartment is the best place to park as its the closest you can park without having to pay for parking or be timed (the time alluded to park near Jed-wen is less time then a game). That means no parking tickets on game days, which is a big money maker for the City of Portland.

I am about 20 minutes by car from the PDX airport or a quick MAX ride from the airport and then 2 min cab ride to your new stay or arrange a pick up with me from there subject to my availability.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Mette was kind and went out of her way to make my stay comfortable and easy. I needed to interview for a job at the OHSU campus and she gave me a ride the morning I checked out. She had great suggestions of places to go in walking distance from her apartment and provided me with a map and umbrella for some unexpectedly heavy rain showers!

  • Was only there for one night, but Mette's house is beautiful, clean, there's ample parking and we were very comfortable. Mette was also really friendly and helpful.

  • Mette was a wonderful host! She picked us up at the nearest MAX stop, gave us 3 comfy beds and was very hospitable. We stayed for 2 nights and were given fresh towels and a beautiful apartment to stay in. On our last day, we left a pair of shoes under the bed, and before we flew out, she met us downtown to drop them off to us! That was so amazing! Mette has also started a scrubs company ((website hidden))..these scrubs are super comfy and cute- mette let us get sized and she gave us a pair to test out. Because we were not totally prepared, she let us borrow umbrellas and a map of Portland. We would definitely love to stay here again!

  • Stayed one night with Mette, comfortable bed, nice apt, great neighborhood to enjoy hilly walk above downtown. Mette gave me great directions to walk downtown...20 min on way down, about 30 to walk back up from PSU campus area.

  • Mette is an efficient and hospitable lady. She answered my request in an hour for booking her place the next day. In addition she was really kind to offer to pick us up from downtown. Her place was up on the hills by downtown and it would have been horrifying to walk uphill on the steep slopes. Luckily, 23rd street and vista was a very fun journey to walk back downtown and to the 23rd street area. Also, the MAX lines red/blue were on 18th avenue and was about a 15-20 minute walk from Mette's place. Her place was simple yet comfortable. It was very pretty and quiet at night. The guest room and Mette's room were on opposite ends of the hall so there were no worries of disturbing each other. If you ever try to call Mette's and hear the voicemail, don't worry, she owns a private business and thus the voicemail might sound like a work phone but its actually her private line! Also, cabs were about 10 bucks from downtown, which is very reasonable for a late night ride.

  • Mette was a excellent host. The apartment and room were clean and in good shape. The bed was especially comfy with lots of pillows and covers. The only problem for me (because I was on foot) was getting to and from the apartment as it was near the top of steep hilly area with limited bus service. But Mette was gracious enough to give me an occasional ride when needed so it wasn't too bad an experience in the end (I guess I could say got some exercise in).

    September 2013
  • Mette was such a nice host. She was very open minded, nice to talk with, and I will definitely recommend anyone to stay at her place. Thank you so much Mette!

    September 2013
  • Mette is very nice host and the location is pretty nice too. Not really public transport friendly but is very close to downtown and there is ample street parking around. The room has a conditioner and a separate bathroom (that is not in the room itself though).

    September 2013
  • Mette is a great hostess. She is super casual and friendly. Her accommodations were clean, comfortable and exactly what she advertises. The apartment is located in a quiet upwardly mobile neighborhood. It's close to downtown too. Parking was easy.

    August 2013
  • Mette was a great host and very friendly. Her flat is in a gorgeous section of Portland that hovers above the city- the views from the bridge a few blocks south are breathtaking. I will stay here again when in Portland.

I am original from Denmark, but have been living in Portland for about 23 years. I Have two growing up daughters, my older daughter is a teacher and my younger daughter is still in school. I am just starting a scrub business mettescrubs. I am a very active person, and like to go for long walks. I also like to travel a lot and have been to many places around the world. I discovered airbnb about a year ago when I had to go to New York. I had a great experience with airbnb and think it is a great way to travel. I keep my place nice and clean and always think about what it would be like if I were the guest. I have enjoyed all my guests and hope to enjoy many more.
