Interaction with Guests
Depends on how much they want.
This home is a primary residence which means that it is hosted 9 months out of the year.
We pride ourselves on being super hosts with a concierge service that can't be beat. If you want the scoop of where to go in town, the newest restaurant, what is over hyped and what is hidden- we can tell you.
We also respect privacy and let the guest decide what will make their stay Portland fabulous.
Nothing but positive things to say about this lovely host and her home. Very accommodating and even welcomed me early so I could restore after a camping trip.
Nola's home is beautiful, comfortable, and located in a quiet neighborhood very close to a lively and interesting commercial area. (Her home is even more beautiful than the photos that show!) She is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all the Portland has to offer. I appreciated the ecological and green priorities. The home is spacious enough that even with multiple guests it was quiet and peaceful.

About the Host, Nola
It is so much fun watching Portlandia make fun of our beautiful city Portland, as well as its residents. I could say the same about how the show Father Ted made folks really know Ireland- the good, the bad, and the ridiculous.
Well, it is our turn now, and what a great time to live here. There is a Food Renaissance here that is complemented by Art, Tech, Learning, Nature, Sustainability, and some of the friendliest people anywhere.
I am a bit of a stereotype of Portland since I have a business in green rentals as well as being an extremely social, nerdy, outdoors loving, book reading person. And I adore living in Portland and knowing at least a little bit about everything that is going on. What do you want to do?
I have a bunch of Irish influence which makes me a social story-teller who loves guests. I enjoy hosting folks as well as traveling. I have spent time living in Argentina, Mexico, France, and Hawaii. I live in Ireland as well as in the States.
Sharing my home and other properties is my calling. I designed the Taylor house be lovely, healthy, green, and efficient- it's the Sustainable Economist in me. The other properties that I list I have remodeled to be fun and healthy as well. The house in Ireland is on my ancestor's land and I grew up going to this house. I have spent the last two years doing a major remodel and it looks great. La Casita was where I taught Argentine Tango for many years and is quite charming. I also have a house that I rent full time that was featured on the GreenRenter site and is an offical G-Rated environmental home.
A key thing about what I offer as a host is what I am looking for as a guest. I can't stand chain hotels. They can be quite luxurious but they always come across as impersonal. Give me a fun walkable neighborhood that real people live, work and play- and That is where I wish to stay. My properties are unique luxurious spaces that I created for myself, my family and my community that I can also share with you.
One last thing, these are my personal properties so there are no surprises about folks who are subletting through Airbnb. I have a great team (Talia and Anastasia ) who take care of things when I am away, but you can always contact me directly through email with any concerns or questions.
I am a social person so hosting comes naturally to me and I have often had folks staying with me even before AirBnB. Friends stay with me or just toss relations and friends my way to take in. Now thanks to the Share-economy so many things are possible that are community building, sustainable, and amazing.
There are many changes happening with short term rentals and the City of Portland. I am pleased that Portland is seeking a balance between the share-economy and our amazing communities.
