About This Listing
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).

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.
Be nice, respectful and hopefully have a love for cats =)
Our new electric heater fireplace, kitchen station with added burner, coffee maker, and pots and pans in the cabinets below
The room was great and as described. It was clean and spacious and we practically had the whole second floor to ourselves. We unfortunately did not meet Van but she was so responsive before and during our trip. We ran into Eric just twice but both times was gracious and welcoming. We highly recommend this place!
This was our first Airbnb experience and it couldn't have been any better. The room and all amenities were as described and even better than expected. The bed is super comfy. The room was spacious and it was great to have the extra seating area for lounging after a long day. The location was also very convenient. The restaurants and shops nearby are an easy walk and it's easy to catch a bus into downtown Portland.
Van was in communication prior to our arrival and after check in to make sure we didn't need anything. We had some unexpected hot weather while there and Van reached out to make sure we didn't need a portable A/C unit set-up b/c the room was too warm. We didn't need it but appreciated the concern for our comfort.
If ever in the area again we wouldn't hesitate to stay here.
Luigi the cat made sure to greet us each time we arrived in the room. He was a sweetheart and we appreciated the kitty visits.
Van and Eric were great hosts. The room is just lovely and Luigi (the cat) was welcoming us with open arms! The apartment is super clean and there's everything you could wish for! The area is also very nice and you're downtown real quick. I would highly recommend staying with them!
Great private room! Van and Eric were very nice and Luigi was cute and sweet. The room was supplied with anything and everything we could have needed.
What a great space in a great neighbourhood. The room provided was huge and had everything we could possibly have needed, including our own separate bathroom. The rooms were clean and the bed was super comfy. The house is located in a great part of Portland with lots of excellent restaurants and brewpubs a very short walk away. It is also extremely easy to get into the downtown area via bus.
Van was fantastic. Together with Eric, they took care of everything I needed and even more than that :). The room is quite big - excellent for couples who want their own space. The neighborhood was quiet and was near bus stations, restaurants etc.
Van helped me a lot during my stay. When I go back to Portland, this is my place to stay (As long as Van's there, anyways :))
Although we were only here for one night, we did find the accommodations much, much better than a hotel room. The apartment was spacious, clean and beautifully furnished with all possible amenities. Within the neighborhood are restaurants and shopping, and, not too far away, some of Portland's famous food trucks.
