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 1 bed, 1 bath space available for guests. The house is a 3 level, 4 bedroom. Our private space is upstairs in the attic, but the rest of the house is available for the guests. The main level has two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, your bedroom would be the large front bedroom with a gorgeous four-poster bed. You would share your bathroom with anyone that might be staying in the back bedroom.
There are also large common areas including the living room, dining room, and kitchen, 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 attic area and other guests' bedrooms. 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.

I stayed in Zach's place for two nights. It was great, the location was convenient and quiet. The room was neat and comfortable. Nice experience in Portland.
Nice place, good location. comfy bed and clean house. Zach was welcoming and informing about the neighborhood.
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The room was very spacious. The whole house is clean and tidy. Zach was friendly and respected our privacy. Although it was 90+ degrees, it was still very cool in the room.
Super nice & easy check in & stay. Zachary is a more hands off host which was appreciated - we arrived in the evening, he gave us a little tour of the place & let us know if we needed anything he's available. We went out for the evening & checked out the next morning without seeing him again - which was perfect for us. The location was great - walking distance to Alberta, the room was super comfortable & you only share the bathroom if there are other guests downstairs. Really pleasant stay!
Zach was super easy to work with as a host. We ended up arriving about 2 hours later than we expected due to work, and Zach was completely cool with it and stayed up to greet us and show us around the house. Speaking of which, he has WAY more of his house opened up to guests than any other Airbnb host has in my experience. I kept expecting the tour to end and it just kept going!
The bed was extremely comfortable, the wi-fi was fast, and the fan kept the room cool despite the heat. Will definitely stay here again if it's available the next time I am in Portland.

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.
