Our suite is situated in the daylight basement of our one hundred year old home, on a tree lined street, near restaurants and shops. The bedroom has a queen size real bed, and in the sitting room there is a futon which we will happily convert to a bed if needed. In the corner of the sitting room you'll find some kitchen essentials, a microwave, a small refrigerator, an electric kettle, and a french press. We keep it stocked with fresh ground coffee, and instant oatmeal for a quick on the go breakfast. I am always happy to loan any additional cooking supplies; spices, utensils, or pots and pans, as needed.
But who needs to cook when there are so many amazing restaurants in our neighborhood like Ox, Toro Bravo, Bunk, and Russell Street BBQ, all just a few blocks away.

Wonderful location, wonderful apartment, wonderful host. Check-in & check-out were easy peasy. I appreciated the garage/"mud room," where we could take off our wet things before entering the apartment. Very comfortable bed, excellent bathroom (roomy, good water pressure, plenty of hot water), good heating. Many Portland maps and magazine available, to plan your excursions. I'd be happy to stay here again.
Pamela's place was great! Nice and private downstairs apartment all to yourself. It was very close to the convention center if you're attending an event there, and the neighborhood seemed nice and safe. I only met Pamela briefly but she was very sweet and helpful during my arrival. I had everything I needed and she was quick to respond to my messages if I needed anything.
Pamela makes you feel at home in Portland. A carpeted private floor, fresh ground coffee, a bottle of wine, chromecast, and a comfortable bed. You're minutes from downtown and yet in a quiet neighborhood.
Pamela went above and beyond to ensure my friend Monika and I had a pleasant experience at her suite. We loved the location, felt very comfortable, and enjoyed the privacy the setup provided us to come and go. We couldn't get over how nice it was to have access to a water boiler, microwave, and mini fridge. Overall it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay!
I've stayed at in this apt several times and it's always great. Super clean and a great location near restaurants and transit via MLK.
My stay with Pamela was perfect. I'm more of the private type so it was nice to come and get a quick tour of the place and then be given our space and privacy. Her place is only a 7 minute drive from downtown portland and just a quick walk to Moda center. Her suite is completely equipped with everything from snacks like popcorn and oatmeal to hygiene products like body wash shampoo and conditioner. You can definitely hear them upstairs when they are enjoying time in their kitchen but it really isn't a bother. Pamela and her family are the most quiet at night so you don't have to worry about being kept awake at night. I loved everything about the suite. The shower water pressure was a little low but the water temperature does get nice and hot in case you wake up on a cold morning. Oh! The chromecast television system.. if you haven't worked with it before definitely have her help you with it as it can be a little confusing. Wasn't a big deal for my stay because I was barely in the suite to watch TV. All in all I would recommend this suite to anyone looking for a more private space and traveling with 1 or 2 other people. Pamelas very sweet and I thank her so much for an awesome stay!!
My husband and I have lived in this beautiful four square house for 9 years. Scott is a native Oregonian, I was born just outside of Boston. I spent the first half of my life on the East Coast, with a little time spent in LA.
Five things I can't live without: Mount Hood Vanilla tea, my awesome camera, my wonderful children, my generous husband, and tuna salad with tarragon.
I have a home office, so I am often available for suggestions and directions.
