I am usually around-in the garden, kitchen or on my computer. I am happy to say hello, hear of your adventures or answer questions! You visit is about you, not me, so have a great time. :)

You wouldn't have to leave the neighborhood your whole trip! but then you'd miss Powell's Books and the Lan Su Chinese Garden. :)

Portland's transit system is Trimet. they have a Trip planner that gives you 2-3 options when you enter addresses or places or times. We have 2 buses, close by, 2-3 blks, that run every 15 min, 6 am to 10 pm.

  • My experience in Lucinda's home was wonderful. I would have enjoyed more time to spend enjoying the wonderful setting and friendly hosts however I was in Portland for the Waterfront Blues Festival. I was consumed with time at the festival and had very little time to spend however was made to feel free to enjoy all that Portland has to offer and Lucinda was very understanding of late night arrivals. Her home is warm, very well kept, and the entire experience was perfect for our needs. Thank you Lucinda we enjoyed your hospitality!

  • My husband and I stayed a couple nights at Lucinda's home. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lucinda (email hidden) providing us with great local insights and knowledge. She was also very communicative answering all our questions in a timely manner. Her home is lovely and is located in a very cute neighborhood with great restaurants and cafes. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend her place and would definitely stay there again.

  • We had a wonderful stay! Lucinda's house is located in a nice area with good communications and is a very restful place to come home to after a day of exploring Portland. But the best part is Lucinda herself who truly is an amazing person. Warm, wise and generous. We couldn't have had a better stay in Portland.

  • Lucinda was helpful and gave great advice about SE Portland, as we are looking for a place live in the area. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the house, but the room was comfortable and spacious.

  • Lucinda's Airbnb in Portland was clean, comfortable, and within walking distance to restaurants and cafés. The neighborhood was pleasant and safe to walk. Lucinda was available to offer suggestions and answer questions. There are two regular boarders who are pleasant and who one would hardly notice are there. This Airbnb offers great value.

  • Lucinda (email hidden)! The neighbourhood is calm, very walkable, and full of gardens! Lucinda's house was also calm and beautiful. The set up was excellent: we had our own room, with space and a double bed and towels! The bathroom was shared with another airbnb room, but we never saw them. The transit was close by and ran at all times. This was a perfect location for people who want to see the city and be in a sweet area. The questions we had about the area and things to do, Lucinda had great answers. Looking forward to going to Portland again, and would definitely stay here again if it's empty!!

  • We stumbled across AirBnB while planning this trip and it was, in many ways, the perfect happy accident. Ms. Lucinda is a delight (email hidden). So sweet, so willing to chat, to answer questions, to offer a smile. The house is bright and cheerful, the room is comfortable (with one of the comfiest beds i've ever slept on while traveling!), and the neighborhood is safe and friendly.

    And, speaking of the neighborhood, it is in the PERFECT place for a casual trip to Portland. There is so much exploring that can be done within just a few blocks' radius--so many fantastic restaurants, interesting shops, and nooks and crannies to get lost in.

    Overall, there is nothing about our stay that we could wish to be any different. With Ms. Lucinda (and her gracious house-mates), we truly felt like we had more than just a host for our stay but a friend we look forward to seeing again the next time we're in town!

About
I'm a friendly, direct person. I like people. I've always lived with roommates, even when married. I have a lovely home and garden, where I can be found most days! I am a Licensed Massage Therapist for 25 years and have a Private Massage Studio on sight! Both of my sons and their wives, have homes close by. I walk my young son's dog, Taz, in the afternoon or we go to a dog park for some socializing. During the summer, I like to ride my bike through the neighborhood. In the evening, I love to take a picnic for Portland Music in the Parks.
