Come stay with us! We've loved hosting and folks have loved our space - CHECK OUT THE REVIEWS!

The space

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.

Guest access

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 small patio space.

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.

Interaction with guests

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!

The place is exactly as pictured: stylish with a great vibe. The space is comfortble and relaxing. Benjamin and Kristi provided all of the essential amenities. Location was excellent - a block and a half from the Max line was perfect. Communication was a breeze. They were proactive and responsive in their communication. Finally, they were also very accommodating. We asked for what we thought was a huge favor. Without hesitation, they happily granted the request. All in all, our stay was wonderful, and Benjamin and Kristi were absolutely terrific hosts.

We loved this cozy basement apartment, and we appreciated all of the amenities that were provided. It was a very creative and unique use of space. The location was convenient for getting around Portland, and the neighborhood is lovely. We have a thing for water towers so we loved looking at the one in the park around the corner. Checking in was easy and we appreciated the communication!

First impressions aside, we had a great stay here! The place is very cute, in a great location, and the hosts were communicative and friendly. Upon arriving, we did notice a strong odor of a litter box, but this went away to where we couldn't notice it once the doors had been resting closed and not blowing air around. I was amazed at how the smell went away! Overall I highly recommend!

Response from Benjamin And Kristi:
Hi Claire! I am so sorry there was an odor. That can make a stay super unpleasant. Thanks for letting us know! We haven't had a cat in several months and she never used a litter box. We will check into this. Thanks for choosing our spot. It was a pleasure hosting you! Cheers!

Krisit & Ben are the best airbnb hosts you can hope for, responsive, kind, and full of recommendations. Their place is prefect for exploring Portland, super well connected to public transportation and has lot's of cool coffee shops and restaurants nearby. The space is a cute, cozy, clean and really functional for making a cup of coffee before heading into town! Would definitely recommend their place :)

Ben reads lots of magazines, drinks coffee every day, sometimes rides an old moped, wears his hair messy before work then uses some sort of a clay to tame it and get professional, acts like his front porch is a stoop in New Orleans, and gets to work with teenagers in the margins.

Kristi laughs a lot, styles peoples' hairs, loves throwback onion dip, is still looking for the perfect pair of overalls, used to be your flight attendant, has a dad who really lost his thumb in a bull-roping accident and won't let you sip from a beverage without an authentic-eye-contact "cheers".

It's a pleasure to make your acquaintance!
