Our upstairs apartment has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with a twin. There is a small kitchenette with seating, a microwave, sink and a bar fridge. The space has a private bathroom with a shower. There is wireless internet access. The rooms are private, but you'll share our entrance - say hi as you come and go! You might also enjoy sitting on our front porch and watching the world go by.
Enjoy a walk to the Alberta Arts District where you'll find art galleries, craft stores and dress shops. There are a number of restaurants nearby, including many choices for Thai food, pubs, pizza, Mexican, Italian and southern food.

We are pleased to meet new people, and enjoy sharing our home. Please fill out your profile or give us some information about yourself when booking so we can both feel comfortable. Also, we're sorry to say that the space isn't child-proofed and so we cannot accommodate young children.
We have two indoor cats. Much to their chagrin, they are not allowed upstairs. Regretfully, we cannot accommodate visiting pets.
Guests have the whole upstairs, two bedrooms, a kitchenette, seating area and bathroom to themselves. We welcome guests to sit on our porch and watch the world go by. You will walk through our living room in order to get to your private space. Say hi as you go by!

David and Ali were lovely hosts. They made us feel really welcome whilst remaining unobtrusive. Their home is great, with everything one could need in their attic flat. We also were really taken by the Alberta Arts district and nearby Mississippi area. The gardens everywhere are truly glorious. A great start to our Oregonian/Californian odyssey! And brilliant value.
David and Ali were absolutely wonderful hosts! They were extremely responsive and flexible when scheduling our meet, and I was greeted with a truly warm welcome into their home. The space is wonderful, with two bedrooms, bathroom, and kitchen with coffee and tea options. Very quaint and clean! The location was also wonderful, with charming tree lined streets and walking distance to the Alberta Arts district and tons of great food options. Thank you for a great stay!
Ali & David are WONDERFUL! Their house is beautiful and the listing space is very clean, comfortable and was just right for my friends and I. Their home is a short but lovely green walk away from Alberta Street, my favourite spot in Portland. Although we didn't use them, they had bikes for our use which was a plus in my books! They were very accommodating to our needs and had great recommendations for us for just about anything! Ali and David are amazing hosts and it was great having them close by. I would absolutely stay with them again! Thank you guys! :)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Ali and David. They were very warm and welcoming (but unobtrusive) hosts. They have a lovely home and the upstairs space was very clean and comfortable in every way. I was unsure re staying there initially given you access the upstairs space through the house's front door and David and Ali's living area. However I was reassured by the reviews of other guests and found it was not an issue at all. They live in a lovely street and suburb. Alberta street has some lovely shops, cafes and bars. Easy access by bus to downtown. You will not regret staying with David and Ali.
David + Ali are great hosts!
Both of them were very friendly and easy-going.
We had a lot of good conversations, and David offered to help if anything came up.
Their 2 cats are also very friendly :)
Their home is also very comfortable. Comfortable beds, clean rooms, and tea/coffee/oatmeal for breakfast.
Definitely recommend these hosts!
Ali and David gave us a warmly welcome, then left us to happily make our own quiet adventures. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and perfect for a mom and daughter getaway. The Alberta neighborhood is easily walkable from the house, super cute; plus there are several buses to downtown and other fun areas from within just a few blocks. I'd definitely stay again!
