The Space

Thank you, AirBnB community, for making this such an interesting and enjoyable year.
Ever wonder where the other B went in BnB? Look no further, it's right here.
Quiet, comfortable place (email hidden)ly neighborhood. Portland is a food paradise and I live in one of the hot spots. My quiet neighborhood is between Hawthorne and Division with rapid bus service to downtown, 20 minutes. It's a safe, interesting, vibrant place for a stroll or a bike ride. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby. I have bikes available to rent. I speak Spanish and French as well and enjoy hosting.
Breakfast is a specialty of mine. I serve it between 7:30 and 9:30, but let me know if you need it earlier or later. I normally eat with you. For the other meals I can advise about local restaurants. And tell about Portland and Oregon sights. I gladly accommodate vegetarians or vegans, but it's not a place for celiacs. Do tell me about food preferences and/or allergies. People rave about my cooking.
My house is a comfortable 1927 home which I am making as energy efficient as possible. Hardwood floors, lots of books, and plenty of art, but not the kind of place where you have to tiptoe. I have room for two guests at this time, but not three or four.
You would be in the guest bedroom with the TV/DVD, which I never watch. The bedroom has a new queen bed and a trundle for those who want separate beds ( I charge a set up fee for the trundle, see house rules). It is quiet and has several windows, and an extra heater. I have WiFi. We share one remodeled bathroom.
I have a big food garden and a patio and deck for relaxing, also a friendly cat and 3 hens.
I have a two night minimum stay except by special arrangement.
I try to keep the cat out of the guest bedroom, but she is in the rest of the house. So if you are allergic or just don't like cats, this may not be the place for you.
Parking on street is easy.
No smoking please.
If you are arriving by public transport from the airport, the cheapest way is to take the Max train from the airport to the Hollywood Transit Center and call a cab to my place from there.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the living room, bathroom, deck, patio and dining room as well as their room. If you need to store food in the fridge that is possible, but I am the queen of the kitchen.

Interaction with Guests

I live in the house and have breakfast with my guests. I am happy to chat and to give you information and advice about Portland.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • One of the best AirBnB stays I've had. Every little detail of Judy's home is well thought out: even bikes to rent, and a delicious home-made hot breakfast. Beyond the fixing, Judy is a lovely, warm and helpful host. Even without all the thoughtful touches, I'd happily stay again.

  • Judy is a wonderful host. Her beds are comfortable and her breakfasts are first rate. She is gracious and a very interesting person and her house is in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to downtown and easier access to a whole neighborhood of excellent dining beginning just two blocks away. Highly recommended.

    March 2014
  • Judy was a gracious and very accommodating with our breakfast needs. Her cat was the first to greet us as we walked up to check in. Cute house and great location!

    March 2014
  • It was such a pleasure staying at Judy's! Her home is clean and comfortable, and is conveniently located a few steps away from great restaurants and coffee shops. Judy is so nice and accommodating; my friend and I really enjoyed eating breakfast with her every morning! And speaking of breakfast, the food was absolutely DELICIOUS. I would not hesitate to stay here again when I visit Portland in the future.

    March 2014
  • Judy was very easy to communicate with in the days leading up to my trip. She was great when it seemed the weekend would be ruined. Because of her understanding, she would make a wonderful host, and she has our business when we make it to Portland.

    March 2014
  • We were in Portland to visit our son and daughter-in-law. We chose Judy's home because of its proximity to them. This was our first Airbnb experience and we were very pleased. Judy is a gracious and thoughtful hostess who accommodated our changing schedule during the week we stayed with her. Her breakfasts alone are worth the visit; unique and delicious each day! Return visits to Portland and to Judy's anticipated.

    February 2014
  • We had a very nice stay at Judy"s B&B. Judy is a very warm and welcoming host. She was present enough to answer questions we had or to offer advise regarding things to do and places to eat, but not so present that felt invasive, or awkward. We felt that we had the privacy that we enjoy. The breakfast that she prepared were sensitive to our particular needs, one of us being a vegetarian and the other needing gluten-free. The house is peaceful, cozy and quaint, and located in a quiet neighborhood just a few blocks from a variety of restaurants in the local district. The bus stop that took us to downtown Portland/ city center. It is about a 15-20 minute bus ride, and no hassles with parking and the buses run until 2am! Judy's is certainly well worth the price!

    February 2014
  • Judy's the best of the best. She's super chill, is a truly incredible cook, and is fun to hang out with. I'd definitely recommend her house to anyone who's looking for a place to stay in SE Portland.

    February 2014
  • Judy made lovely, delicious breakfasts and her home was perfectly located near Division and Hawthorne streets. We had a great stay!

    January 2014
  • Staying with Judy was an absolute delight. She cooked an amazing breakfast for us each morning and great advice to give us regarding local attractions, the room was spacious and homely and the bed cosy and totally comfortable. I would recommend this stay to anyone visiting Portland - a great location with unlimited food and shopping options nearby.

I'm Judy. I'm a retired recycling specialist and ACLU lobbyist. I love to travel, to cook, to sing and to have guests. I'm quiet, adventurous and independent. I spend my time making music, walking around new places, quilting, reading, camping, bicycling, cooking and eating great food. I enjoy meeting new people and doing new things. I'm in a happy relationship. I speak Spanish and can get by in French. Portland is a wonderful city and I enjoy helping people get to know it. But -- no smoking inside, no drugs, no partying. If you are requesting a stay, please tell me a little about yourself.
