About this listing
Air conditioned! Cozy bedroom inspired by Todos Santos, Baja with warm, lively colors and a relaxing vibe. This house was featured in Portlandia's newest season in the hilarious "Rent-It-Out," sketch!
This is Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen of Portlandia in front of my Ceramics Studio! Check out the Season 4 clip of Rent-It-Out featuring this house! So fun to have them here! Photo courtesy of IFC.
I am pleased and excited to announce that this house has been graced by none other than Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein of Portlandia for a sketch entitled "Rent-It-Out!" More Portlandia photos coming soon...
Private room with Queen size bed in my home near Alberta Arts district. Surrounded by gardens and artistic works, this home is a gallery and gathering space for special events such as concerts, yoga classes, art openings and other happenings. This is the Cully neighborhood with large, sprawling lots full of gardens and mature trees and walking distance to all of the art, food and music you desire on Portland's famous Alberta Street. Near major bus lines and MAX, this town is known for it's simple and efficient public transportation. Our neighborhood has it all though: art galleries, wine bars, sake house, sushi, Thai Food, African food, Ale houses, a plethora of restaurants, music venues, parks, shopping, art and food carts, tea houses, dessert spots, bike rental, bike paths, walking paths, unique local-made clothing/jewelry, vintage second-hand store, theatre, New Season's grocery store offering conscious, organic choices, and a new restaurant opening up just around the corner: Old Salt Marketplace featuring a restaurant, butcher's counter and bar.
The bedroom is spacious with about 180 sq. ft, a queen size bed, other sitting options, good light, bamboo floor, and a shared restroom just a few feet away. The two other rooms in the house are also listed on Airbnb and the house has many common spaces to enjoy such as the living room/gallery, shared kitchen and garden. Here you can expect a peaceful, relaxing stay or getaway. The house is clean, tidy, bright and welcoming and you might just find many pieces of art in the gallery to fall in love with! Currently I am showing ceramics, photographs and paintings. More to come!
I am a ceramic artist and have a studio on-site. Lessons can be arranged by appointment if this interests you during your stay!
The pictured baby grand piano is used by Portland vocalist Jonathan Brinkley to teach voice lessons from time to time. His sessions are playful, inspiring, refreshing, and benefit more than just singing. He is available should you decide you'd like an impromptu lesson!
Your own bedroom, and shared spaces such as kitchen, bathroom, living room, and yard.
Interaction with Guests
I live here and hope to show you around the space. I keep busy with artwork, business and a full-time job, otherwise.
Yes! #75 bus can take you to the Hollywood transit center in about 5-7minutes. From there you can take a Max train to anywhere inside or outside of the city. Also, a bike rental shop in in the 'hood. Easy, bike-friendly town!
Please park on far right or far left of driveway, making sure not to block anyone else in, or park on house-side of street in front of house. We all clean up after ourselves to keep the space bright, clean and fresh. Remove shoes upon entering house. Quiet hours are between 10PM-8AM. We have a whispering practice between those hours. Please avoid using perfumes, colognes or strongly scented products while you are here, as I am sensitive. I do, however, love to burn natural incense (Nag Champa) and sage. Smokers: please smoke away from the house as we like to avoid smoke coming into the house through open windows. Be as brief as you can in the restroom as there is only one for the house. The kitchen is available for your simple, brief, and tidy meal prep.
Jennifer was very warm and hospitable. She provided clean sheets, towels, and great recommendations for things to do around the area. It was my first time in Portland, and she helped me feel right at home. Great location - very walkable to great eateries and lots of bars (although I didn't have a chance to visit any of them).
Such a delightful and comfortable stay! They loved getting to know us and made it a priority to welcome us. They let us have our space but were sure to let us know they were there if we needed anything. Such an awesome house with unique art and a positive energy. Air conditioning was a huge plus!
This was our first airbnb experience. The room was as advertised and the bed was extremely comfortable. The home is located in a great district of Portland, very artsy! Also, very cute baby!
Hi, absolutely excellent. Would definitely book again. This was my first time booking with AirBnB and so didnt exactly know what to expect. I can honestly say tho that my experience booking and staying with Jennifer and Johnathan was beyond perfect and an ideal example of the values i think are behind the concept of AirBnB. -- The place was clean, comfortable, had art, personality and character. It was only 15 minutes from downtown in a beautiful family-oriented safe feeling neighborhood. -- Being a traveler who truly values a good night sleep! It was priceless being able to come home to the placr and find it beautifully silent and relaxing. I woke up well rested each morning. -- Jennifer and Johnathan were exceptional hosts and I cant thank them enough for all their help during my trip. Their home was lovely and I highly recommend them to you other travelers.
The house was clean, as was our room. We were so, so grateful there was air conditioning (a window unit for our room that we could control) given the heat wave over the 4th of July weekend. That was key to making our stay very comfortable. Even though there were other guests in the house, we didn't hear them and hardly saw them, which was nice. The neighborhood seemed very safe, if a little far from downtown. There were places to eat and get coffee within walking and biking distance.
Jennifer made everything very easy. And it was an added bonus to see all the places around the house where the Portlandia "rent it out" skit was filmed!
We enjoyed our stay! Jennifer was very welcoming and accommodating, and even though a lot of people were around, it felt like we had the place to ourselves when we were around.

About the Host, Jennifer
We are Jennifer Love and Jonathan Brinkley. I am Jennifer from Portland, Oregon via Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a ceramic artist by day and work in a local Southern Italian restaurant in the evenings. I love music and learning about music. I practice yoga, am learning about meditation and love to hike in the forest. I enjoy gardening and am currently harvesting kale and spring greens. One of my life mottos is to work hard and play big. Five things I can't live without: fine dark chocolate, kale, music, dance, and sunshine. My favorite traveling destinations so far are Sicily and Todos Santos, Mexico. Oh, how I love the desert, cactus and the gentle sound of palm trees rustling in the wind! I have a dream to run a large Bed and Breakfast, Hacienda style with warm desert colors, lots of tacos and homemade ice cream! Jonathan is a musician and voice teacher. Together we have traveled all over Europe sharing Jonathan's music via concerts in peoples' living rooms! We love to host and share all of our favorite spots in Portland.
