Come stay with us! We've loved hosting and folks have loved our space - CHECK OUT THE REVIEWS!
It's a renovated basement space with private entrance and within a block of light-rail and restaurant core. We've retained some old soul of the 1923 home and accented with creative pieces. You'll find it practical AND funky, with lots of light and space.
Included are a bedroom, Full-size bed, private custom-built bathroom, living room, fridge/micro/coffee/dinnerware and full laundry. The space also includes use of a patio space (though we have a shared yard with our neighbors).
You'll have keyless entry through a back-lit digital locking system, so no one will have to worry about key exchange and access issues.
We are totally flexible and just want you to have a good time! The space allows you to be totally independent if that's your style (private entrace with keyless entry, minimal shared amenities, etc.), but we'd love to meet you and give some not-so-subtle recommendations for stuff to do and areas to see. IT'S UP TO YOU!
We feel lucky to live in a city like this and in a corner of it that strikes the right balance between funky neighborhood and proximity to the city center.
The Overlook is named for the nearby bluffs that look down onto the city center and the Willamette River, offering great sunsets and activity areas (lots of dogs, running and biking). There's a strong core of restaurants, bars, grocery stores and coffee.
Public Transportation: Our home is located in North Portland, one block southeast from the MAX Yellow Line train (North Killingsworth Station) and the #72 Bus line.
Bicycle: North Williams/Vancouver Avenues is the main biking artery through this part of town. This couplet runs North/South and crosses both North Alberta and North Killingsworth streets that lead to our home. We are located approx. 1 mile West of this road.
Driving: Our home is only a few blocks from Interstate-5 - Alberta Street/Swan Island exit if you/re heading South, or the Killingsworth exit heading North.
Very friendly hosts even though we didn't get a chance to meet in person. Super clean, cute & cozy pad & just what we needed for our stay while looking for a permanent rental. Thank you!
Comfy, cozy and we couldn't have asked for more! Easy access to the best restaurants in town (Tasty and Sons for a start) and quick to NW and beyond. Thanks guys!
Wonderful! The place was so cozy and homey and very convenient. Wish I'd had more time to explore the neighborhood! Thank you!
This was my first Airbnb stay, and it couldn't have been better! The space is beautiful, and Benjamin and Kristi thought of every detail to make it as comfortable as possible. They were so responsive in giving us Portland recommendations that we requested, and we also had total privacy during our stay - exactly what we needed/wanted. Stay here - you'll love it!
Benjamin and Kristi's place was just a delight. It was one of the best Airbnb places we have ever stayed. The style of the place was very nice, the amenities were great, and Benjamin and Kristi gave us some great recommendations.
Defninetly stay here and take the train to downtown (which is so close)! It is only $5.00 for a full day).
My boyfriend and I stayed in Ben and Kristi's awesome basement apartment during our trip to Portland and had an amazing time. The apartment was so cool and funky and had everything we needed during our stay. The location is a short walk to the Yellow Max line (about 2 minutes) and near Mississippi Ave (fun bars, kitschy shops, etc.). While we didn't get a chance to meet Ben or Kristi, they were easily available by text and sent messages to make sure we didn't need anything and give some recommendations of fun things to do in the area.
Thanks, Ben and Kristi, for hosting us!
The apartment was very well designed for travellers. The check in and check out process was the most simple and straight forward I have come across in air bnb. It was in a really cool neighbourhood and we got a lot of tips from Kristi about places to go. Excellent.
SUCH a great space!! It totally fit our needs and all the quaint touches made it really fun. B+K went over and above to help us out with food/drink recommendations (both near and closer downtown) and making us feel WELL taken care of. This was the perfect place to hold up a midst the disappointing weekend weather. The apartment was a definite highlight of our mini trip! Would recommend to all.
Everything about this place is magical!!! B+K did an amazing job decorating the space, & making it feel like home. I was beyond pleased with everything the space had to offer. Next time I visit Portland I will definitely be booking here again!
Benjamin and Kristi's spot is awesome! They are great hosts and super accommodating and very quick to respond. The space feels homey and welcoming, I definitely would recommend staying here. My only regret is not staying longer so that I could have explored the area more. Thanks again B&K for a great stay!
