About this listing
We live in a quiet neighborhood in NE Portland that is near the Alberta Arts District. Downtown Portland is a short bus ride away and Alberta St. is only a 15 minute walk! Lots of great restaurants, bars and music venues, and other attractions in the vicinity.
We have a private master bedroom and living room space available for guests. The house is a 3 level, 4 bedroom. Our private space is downstairs in the basement, but the rest of the house is available for the guests. The master bedroom is located on the upper level of the house and has it's own private bathroom. The bed has an amazingly comfortable memory foam mattress.
There are also large common areas including the living room, dining room, and kitchen on the main floor, which are all available for guests to use.
Out back there is a yard with fruit trees, a deck and covered patio where guests may sit and relax. There is also a washer and dryer available for guests to use upon request for no extra charge. We provide linens, towels, and toiletries. We also have hair dryers and an ironing board.
Guests will have access to the entire house, except for the basement area and other guests' bedrooms on the main floor. Guests have full use of all common areas.
Interaction with Guests
We can have as much interaction with a guest as they are comfortable with. We can be available to check in, and then leave you to do as you wish, or we are also more than willing to socialize and show you around town. Whatever your comfort level may be, we can accomodate.
The area where we live is quiet and peaceful. But if you're a foodie, or looking for entertainment, Alberta St. is just a short walk away, and it has lots of great restaurants, music venues, and bars. We are more than happy to suggest some of our favorites. There is also easy access to downtown Portland via public transportation. Beaumont Village, also nearby, is a great place for breakfast/brunch. Wilshire Park, a 14 acre park, is only two blocks away. If you're looking for a relaxing sanctuary in the middle of the city, surrounded by unforgettable food, lively bars and great entertainment, you will love this neighborhood!
If you are driving, please park in our driveway, or directly in front of our house. If there are no spaces there, please be very careful to not block any driveways and to be considerate of our neighbors.
There is a bus line right around the corner that takes you to Hollywood transit center, where you can hop on a MAX line to take you into downtown. Or, if you don't want to switch, there is the 17 bus line, which is a few blocks away, that takes you directly into downtown. We are also happy to accomocate if you need a ride anywhere, for a minimal fee, per request. Our neighborhood is very safe, so walking and biking are also a great alternative to public transportation.

We had a great stay in Portland and would highly recommend Zach as a host! He was around for our late arrival time and gave a warm welcome and tour of the house. The downstairs suite was very clean, spacious, and comfortable, and being on a separate floor from the rest of the house created a very nice sense of privacy. Very close to Alberta arts district, as advertised! Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay.
Zachary was quite responsive and friendly, the space is good for the price, very comfortable bed, little dark but totally adequate and in a great location.
Zach est un hôte agréable. Nous sommes arrivés avec un peu d'avance et la chambre était prête. Nous avons apprécié la salle de bain privée. Je recommande.
조용한 분위기 좋으시다면 적당한 장소 입니다. 친절한 호스트가 여러분을 반겨줄것입니다. 하지만, 늦게 예약하면 반지하 방에서 밤새도록 촉촉하고, 시원하게 주무실수 있습니다^^. 렌트카가 있으시면 추천합니다.
Great private room, Zachary was kind in his tour of the house and the house rules aren't an imposition at all.
Wonderful spot! The room is just lovely, quite roomy, and the house is great, very welcoming =) My hubby and I were only there for a night and never even crossed paths with Zachery or Jade, but they were still perfect hosts! We'll definitely look to stay here again next time we pass through.
Zach was a great host. He met me at the door, gave me a tour and some tips about the area. Place was clean. Bed was comfy. Room is in a basement. It's a good place to sleep. Parking on the street was easy and convenient.

About the Host, Zachary
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.
