Our sunny bedroom will be your home away from homes. We are a 5-10 minute walk from tons of shops and restaurants, and right on the bus line to go downtown. The room has every amenity you can imagine to make your stay as self sufficient as possible
We have a very lovely 300 sq ft bedroom in our upstairs that has just been completely redone. We actually designed the entire bedroom around the idea of using Airbnb to find guests.
The house is a beautiful 100 year old house in NE Portland. You are a 5 minute walk from Mississippi street & Alberta street, and only 2 miles from the Lloyd Center (The Mall) and the Rose Garden Arena. There is a brand new New Seasons Grocery Store that is only a 10 minute walk away. Not to mention, you can walk to many different restaurants (Peruvian, Mexican, Ethiopian, American, Deli, Coffee, etc) in just a couple of minutes... as well as many shops and businesses. You are also right on the 44, 4 and 6 bus lines, and can get to downtown Portland in 10 minutes by hopping on the 44.
The room, as described, is 300 square feet and comes with all the accommodations you could need for a very pleasant and enjoyable stay. There is plenty of free parking in front of the house, and we also have a driveway you can use if you request it! Inside of your room you will have access to a brand new Keurig coffee maker, a refrigerator, a microwave, an electric burner, a butcher block, a fireplace (electric heater), dishes, knives, and silverware. The room also comes with a brand new 40" Samsung flat screen television, Direct T.V. (with HBO and other paid channels), a brand new Queen size bed, full length mirror, Wifi, and a very nice air conditioner (in the summer). The room is as nice as any hotel room you will find, but much cheaper, and in a great location. However, unlike a hotel room, you will also have access to the rest of the house (kitchen, washer/dryer, fenced in back yard, downstairs bathroom, etc...) We tried to make the room as self sufficient as possible though, so you are able to stay comfortably in the privacy of your own room!
There are only 2 of us in the house, however, you will be sharing the upstairs bathroom with only 1 of us (me). I actually rarely use the bathroom, usually just to shower and brush my teeth (but I usually shower in the basements to avoid getting in people's way). The bathroom is a beautiful tile and granite bathroom that was recently remodeled. There is an additional half bathroom downstairs that you can use. The bathroom, as well as the stairwell are located right outside of your room. We do have 2 cats, however, they spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer.
About us: We are both very mature, social and we both work together at our office just down the road. I am 28, he is 48, and neither of us drink or use drugs. We both are cat lovers, we watch Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, and I play piano. If you enjoy music, you are more than welcome to come play our grand piano in the main room downstairs. The locks on our doors are all electronic, so we will give you a personal entry code and you can come and go from the house as you please without having to worry about keys. We will also be more than happy to take you out and show you the town if you are interested (and if we aren't (email hidden) The short, you will have:
- Microwave, Refrigerator, Coffee Maker, Electric Burner (In your room)
- Fireplace (Electric Heater)
- We give you Tully's Coffee and all the beverages you could want, refrigerator comes stocked with drinks (Usually water, cokes and orange juice).
- Direct T.V. With OnDemand & Movie Channels (HBO, ect...)
- Access to 1 1/2 Bathrooms
- Access to Laundry Room
- Access to kitchen if you need it
- Queen Size Bed
- Huge closet with hangers, storage space and chest of drawers for your clothes
- Air Conditioner for summer
- Fenced in backyard
- You can pick wild blackberries in our yard during the summer
- Oh, and access to 2 cats =)
If this sounds like your kind of place, and we sound like your kind of people, then send us a request =)
** Optional 2nd bedroom **
My 2nd bedroom is available ONLY to people who are booking the main bedroom. This bedroom is the purple and pink bedroom in the pictures above. Both bedrooms are side by side.
- Cost is $25 a night
- If you book both bedrooms you will have the entire upstairs (bathroom included) all to yourself.
- Bedroom is larger than it appears (156 sq feet) and measures 13X12 and has a very nice twin size bed, Wifi, 32" Samsung flat screen, Direct T.V. Antique Vanity and a Piano. Also has two windows, an air conditioner and central heating.
The laundry room also has a utility sink and a dishwasher, and we can put an electric burner in there for you to cook on, so if you rent both rooms you will basically have the equivalent of an apartment, measuring around 700 sq ft. I can even put up a cat gate to keep the cats out of the upstairs.
- Keep in mind, this 2nd room is essentially my dressing room... so my clothes are in the closet and in the drawers. If you are staying for more than a few days I may need to come upstairs and get some clothes out... But i will do my best to get everything out that i might need. Otherwise, you will have the entire upstairs to yourself! =)
- If you want to book both bedrooms, send me an inquiry and I will send you back a Special Offer that includes both bedrooms.
We had a fantastic stay at Van's place. The room is just as pictured but even better in real life. The location is great, very easy to get in to downtown and a short walk from some good restaurants and bars. Van was great at keeping in contact with us although we didn't get to meet. We would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to stay again.
Fantastic place! Very well-maintained, large, bright room with a bed that is so comfortable, it makes it difficult to get up. The room is much larger than expected. The bathroom, though shared, is beautiful and very clean. We appreciated the fridge in our room to keep leftovers, as well as the Keurig machine. We will definitely stay here again next time we come to Portland.
This was a lovely first Airbnb experience. Van made our stay so relaxing and is very thoughtful about all the details that make the room feel like a home! I have been to Portland several times but this is a stay I won't forget!
Van is the perfect host!! She is super easy to communicate with and responds quick, which made planning our stay that much easier. Even though my partner and I stayed for only one night, we felt right at home. Van gave us a tour of the space and then left us alone. If you want to converse, she's open to that too.
The room is exactly as pictured and had all the extra fixings (extra towels, coffee, old school Nintendo, awesome cats to cuddle with, etc.) The room and bathroom is spacious. The location is perfect--public transportation is accessible, plenty of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. No complaints!
I loved my stay at Van and Eric's place. The room is very spacious, more than you can tell from the pictures, and everything you could possibly need has been thought of by the gracious hosts. Van was friendly and informative, with near instant communication. The cats were a great addition too, Luigi in particular is super friendly. =) I would definitely stay here again, thanks Van and Eric!
My daughter and I had a great stay at Van's house. The room is very spacious. The bed was incredible comfortable, and they provided any amenity you might need. Van and Eric were very welcoming and friendly. I can see why they are booked solid through the month.
Van's room was fantastic. Had everything we needed and was perfectly situated between the Mississippi / Alberta shopping + eating districts. Van was super responsive throughout the entire process. Her lovely Siamese kitty, Luigi, even came up to say hi on our last day and make sure we didn't forget anything while we packed up.
Van and Eric are excellent hosts. The house is wonderful and situated in a very nice neighborhood with nice restaurants and shops nearby. The bus stop to the centre city is a 5 minute walk. We really enjoyed our stay at Van and Eric's.
They are very friendly and kind. Give you a lot off suggestions what to do and visit in Portland. Zelda and Luigi are the lovely house cats. We miss them!
The room was awesome and had everything youight need for a nice night. It was very clean and was a great size. We especially loved the old Nimtendo and Super Nintendo available to play. Van was great and super accommodating also. She made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay, and was very helpful giving us directions to the places we were interested in seeing and even suggesting things we didn't know about. Would recommend her house to anyone wanting a private room in Portland.
Perfect location, room, and host. The room and bathroom feel very private. Better than any fancy smancy hotel room out there. I also enjoyed a cuddle session with Luigi the cat. Bed is super comfortable and the room is stocked with some snacks, drinks, and coffee. I felt so comfortable I didn't want to leave. The neighborhood is pleasant and some of the best resteraunts, bars, and shops are right down the street on Mississipi. Also very close to the Alberta Arts District. Easy parking for those of you who want to rent a car ($10 a day through Kayak at the airport). Would definetly stay there again if I come back to Portland.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
