About this listing
Our beautiful home in the heart of NW PDX is only two mile's from downtown, next door to Pittock Mansion. Park-like setting, waterfall and gardens. Private suite with/bath, separate entrance surrounded by total forest! Large flat screen TV, wi-fi.
Since you will have your own separate entrance, you are also invited to come upstairs and enjoy the main floor of the house which has our common area, kitchen, living and dining room. You can also have access to our washer and dryer and home office, but please ask. Our home is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows that truly give you a tree house feel right near the city.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to share as much time as you wish, or give you your privacy. We entertain quite a bit so again, you are welcome to join or not. I will most likely always be here for your arrival.
We live in a gated community cul-du-sac which is small (5) houses, we all have dogs and appreciate keeping car speed at a slow minimum.From downtown take the #20 bus, or Taxi to our home. The bus takes you to bottom of our hill and a short walk up to our home. We are very close to The Pearl District in NW Portland, and downtown
The # 20 bus runs very close to our home and down Burnside near town...Check the Portland TransitTracker site and get all bus times.
Other Things to Note
Because we are so close to Portland, we are close to many neighborhoods and great food, shops and hiking!!
Please see house manual. No smoking, or pets.
Victoria, Jay, and their lab Abby were wonderful hosts and we had a wonderful and relaxing stay. Despite being extremely busy arranging their move, they made sure we had everything possible for a comfortable stay- including stocking a mini-fridge with juice and yogurt! The property is absolutely gorgeous, and within minutes of walking trails. Victoria even left free passes to the Pittock Mansion, however we did not get a chance to use them. Good luck on your move and hopefully you will be able to host once again in your new place.
Victoria and Jay are very helpful, hospitable and accommodating. From Day 1 we felt truly at home, as if we have always lived there. Abby (the ambassador) was a great addition to the welcoming atmosphere. We would love to spend more time with VJA next time we are in Portland!
I was welcomed by Victoria and Abbey. She showed me around my area and then invited me for a glass of wine to become acquainted.
The neighborhood , house and space are beautiful, quiet, private and very comfortable. Victoria and Jay are friendly and helpful.
The place was advertised as having a kitchen, but actually it only had a couple of kitchen items and you couldn't really cook. That was not an issue for me because I was out most of the time.
Victoria and Jeff welcomed my little grandchildren and went out of their way to be helpful.
Bottom line, I would highly recommend this airbnb home to others.
Thanks to Victoria, Jay and Abbie for a peaceful, luxurious atmosphere. Happy birthday to Victoria as well. In Kindness, Kirk and Macarena
Victoria is a great host. She really went out of her way to make me feel welcomed and comfortable, including inviting me to brunch with her and some friends on her birthday. The location is perfect and serene, and the house is beautiful. I had a wonderful time, and look forward to coming back.
Loved our stay here!!! From the first minute of meeting Victoria, she was so welcoming it was hard to believe I was meeting a "stranger." Their home is gorgeous. Cool art everywhere, beautiful garden and landscaping view from our room at the lower level and our own entrance. Her dog Abby also made the stay. This will definitely be my first choice for my future trips to Portland.
We could not have not asked for a better first Airbnb experience and a first time in Portland! Victoria, Jay and Abby were wonderful, hospitable, and kind. The listing was exactly as advertised and the view off the back porch is quite stunning! We will definitely stay with them again when we return to Portland!
