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!
This is a really great spot to stay in. Teresa was always available and extremely kind. The room was nice and comfortable as well.
The location is pretty unbeatable with great bars and restaurants nearby. I loved going to Helser's for brunch and the Knock Back for evening drinks. Extracto, a nearby coffee shop, had maybe the best coffee I've ever had. And the small grocery store right at the corner of 15th and Alberta was also really convenient.
Overall, it was awesome staying here and I became friends with a lot of the other folks staying at the house. It was a really great experience and I highly recommend staying here!
I had a really great time at this place. I'm a frequent Air BnB traveler, and this is one of my favorite experiences. The house is generally full of travelers, so within a week, we all became friends and explored the city together -- which is a big help in a new city.
Teresa was a fantastic host! She's so warm, friendly and kind, and had plenty of suggestions of cool things to do and great places to eat. We had a good stay at the house and, despite it being somewhat of a no-frills situation, it was clean and had everything we needed. The best thing about the place (aside from Teresa!) is its location- we were within walking distance of all the restaurants and cafes I had wanted to check out, plus some really cool local bars and shops!
Teresa was a great host! I enjoyed my room and the privacy I had, but she was also always accessible if I had any questions. Thanks, Teresa!
Teresa was very very cool --kind and laid-back (which I appreciated, especially when my arrival time got wonky due to interstate traffic).
The neighborhood is nice: a few blocks from the NE hip part of town; bus stop to downtown is right up the block; it's two blocks down from the Alberta Arts, which is a must-see; and the neighborhood is safe feeling. It's got a scruffy kind of charm, like much of Portland itself (think Kurt Cobain --grungy yet beautiful).
Teresa was efficient and courteous with just the right amount of interaction. All was as promised. I recommend.
Teresa and her environment are easygoing, welcoming and accommodating. She was very flexible with her check in and check out times, and every time our paths crossed I was treated to a friendly smile , and pleasant conversation if I wanted it. I've stayed there before and both times she has had an eclectic and amicable assortment of house guests; everyone gets along yet also gives each other plenty of space. Altogether it's a lovely blend of comfort, hospitality, privacy and home-iness. I plan to return!

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.
