About this listing
I live in a quiet neighborhood in NE Portland. Downtown Portland is a short bus/car ride away and Alberta St. is only a 15 minute walk! There are a lot of great restaurants, music venues, bars and lounges in the vicinity. Foodies welcome :)

*The house can only accommodate up to 10 people for insurance and permit compliance purposes. Please do not ask to bring any more than 10 people*

I have a 4 bedroom, 3 bath space available for guests. The main house is 3 levels with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There is also a studio out back that has its own bathroom and kitchen. My private space (where I live) is downstairs in the basement. If I am around I will come and go through the basement door and out the back door. The rest of the 4bed/3bath space is available for guests. On the main level there is one large bedroom with a queen sized, four-poster bed, and a medium sized bedroom with a set of bunk beds with pillow-top mattresses. These two rooms share a bathroom. Upstairs there is a Master bedroom with a queen sized bed, complete with a memory foam mattress, and a private bath with a shower and claw-foot tub. Out the back door and diagonal to the house, there is a studio that has a queen sized bed (also memory foam mattress), and a kitchen and bathroom area.
There are also large common areas including the living room, dining room, and kitchen, which are all for guest use.
Out back there is a yard with fruit trees, a deck and a patio where guests may sit and relax. There is also a washer and dryer available for guests to use for no extra charge. Please make arrangements with me if you wish to use the washer and dryer, as I usually keep the door locked. I provide linens, towels, and toiletries. Hair dryers an iron and an ironing board are also provided.
Guests will have access to the entire house and studio, except for the basement area, which is my private space. Guests have full use of all common areas.
Interaction with guests
I can have as much interaction with a guest as they are comfortable with. I can be available to check in, and then leave you to do as you wish, or I am also more than willing to socialize, if time allows. Whatever your comfort level may be, I can accomodate.
Other things to note
Guests must mention if they are traveling with a RV or large vehicle + trailer, and must acquire pre-approval before booking.
I do have two cats, but they live downstairs in my private space and are not allowed in the common areas or guest bedrooms. (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)-RS

I'm pretty easy going. I am well traveled and enjoy helping out fellow travelers. I have been to 20+ countries and enjoy sharing stories and experiences.
I enjoy watching movies and reading a good book. I am also a music fanatic. My favorite food is probably Thai food, but it's tough to decide.
My favorite place I've been out of the country so far is Finland. There's just a pleasant wildness about the place that I enjoyed. My favorite place within the country is, of course, Portland! The Northwest is a wonderful area to visit.
I believe in living life, so that when I pass on, I can look back on my life and have great memories and as little regret as possible. That's one of the reasons I've tried to travel so much.
I hope to provide people with a pleasant stay and an opportunity to get the most out of their visit to Portland.
