About this listing
This neighborhood is perfect for Portland visitors!
The bus stops across the street and arrives downtown in 20 minutes.
We are a block away from Alberta Street with AMAZING coffee shops, bakeries, famous restaurants, fire pit bars, shops, etc.
5 bedroom 2 bath house with front porch, washer/dryer, high-speed WiFi, Shared Kitchen and lots of light and shared common areas.
This is a shared housing environment. There will be 4 other guests living in the home.
This is not a Bed and Breakfast, but a regular home that I rent rooms to short term guests. The house has a funky, rustic laid-back Portland style environment. The neighborhood is great and everyone loves the house, but it would be considered a cosmetic fixer.
I keep the home a quiet and welcoming environment and am a knowledgeable host. I am open to spending time and developing relationships with my guests.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Portland!
The house is a relaxed, quiet environment. There is no TV or music in the common areas. It is important to be quiet opening and closing doors, walking around etc.
10pm-10am quiet hours. There are two rooms on the main floor and basement that can hear a lot since there is not a lot of insulation.
Washing your dishes and cleaning counters after use is the only other important rule of the house. Otherwise it is a very laid-back household.
Thank you for your consideration!
Teresa was really helpful and made our staying very comfortable with her suggestions to visit, concerts and bars. Portland is a lovely city and Inhope to come back with more time as I fell in love with the city. Thanks very much Teresa¡
Room was clean and just as described (actually a bit better because it wasn't in the basement since that was taken) and the house was a short walk to all the good stuff on Alberta Street. The location really couldn't have been better for us. We weren't totally comfortable in the common areas since we didn't get to meet the others in the house, some of whom were probably Airbnb guests. Teresa was very easy and efficient to deal with, no complaints there, but it would have been nice to have had introductions and some guidance on the area.
My stay was very good. The house as always quote and clean. The room was cozy and the bed was great. I would recommend anyone looking to stay in Portland to check this place out. Thanks again!
Well, what can I say? Teresa is an awesome host and a truly ambitious person. I came to portland knowing absolutely no one, however I made a lot of connections, acquaintances and I am even building up a friendship with one other guest who stayed with Teresa. The place was always clean, the internet was fast and the area is amazingly laid back. She even invited me to an event, which I have yet attend, as I was slightly too busy with work (whoops!). The bed was comfortable and granted me a high quality sleep.
To conclude, if you want to stay in portland for a week or even a month, stay with Teresa. You'll make fantastic acquaintances (maybe even friendships) with the other people staying there and while the area is rather quiet and laid back, there are a lot of events, restaurants and other shops, which are only a few minutes away (walking distance). :-)
This house is old but has a cool layout. Very loud floors and thin walls so you can hear everything. Had a ant problem in my room and bathroom but T is working on that.
Teresa was so welcoming, and was sure to check-in if I needed anything, but also gave plenty of personal space. The neighborhood was incredible. A 5 minute walk to some great restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and some stores. And a 2 minute walk to the bus stop that takes you right to downtown Portland. This is such an ideal location, especially if traveling without a car.
Staying at Theresa's in Portland was great. She is very accommodating, the neighborhood is fantastic, and the room was comfy.

About the Host, Teresa
I am very mellow but also friendly and outgoing. I like to develop relationships with people of all walks of life. I keep busy but also like to make time to get to know house mates. I have traveled in India, Mexico, Thailand, Canada, and the US. I have lived in Portland and this neighborhood for a long time and have many great suggestions.
