Welcome to my Charming vintage guest house centrally located in one of the Portland oldest historic neighborhood in North Portland. Very close proximity to North Mississippi and NE Alberta Arts business districts and 5 min drive to downtown Portland.
It's 4bedrooms + 1 bath house. 1600sq. I have 5 beddings. (2 queen beds, 2 double beds and 1 single futon couch ).
The house is built in 1919 and maintains all historic charm. The house has old wood floor throughout the main floor. There are two bedrooms in downstairs and one huge bedroom in upstairs. 2 guest bedrooms in downstairs are charmingly decorated with very comfortable queen sized bed with organic cotton sheets, Indonesian teak bench, Japanese antique prints, large closet and sunny large window. Upstairs room is carpeted, huge space with a double beds, comfy chair and TV with basic cable. There is Wi-Fi throughout the house.
The bathroom is equipped with all the amenities you need such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryer, and plenty of towels. Cozy and clean with shower room with vintage tiles (No tub).
Living room and dining room are filled with natural lights, very spacious and cozy place to relax. There is a small balcony right off of dining room which is covered by lovely grape vine. Mexican hammock is there for you to read and relax in the afternoon or in the evening with lanterns on for summer. There is a cozy fire place in the living room to curl up and relax in winter. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with all the items for you to prepare any meal you like. Microwave and dishwasher are also available for your convenience.
I also have a super adorable brick covered back patio that you can relax or dine anytime you would like. Covered front porch with vintage tile floor is also a great spot to relax.
The house is in an excellent location in Inner Portland with easy access to public transportation and highways. Walking distance to organic grocery store called New Seasons, and incredible Rose Garden, Peninsula Park. You can go take a nap in this absolutely adorable and peaceful Rose Garden. For dining and shopping, there are artsy Mississippi district and Alberta Arts district close by which are full of great restaurants, cafes, shops and Yoga studios. You can either walk (30min) bike (15min) or take a bus (5min) there. We are also 10 min drive or 15 min direct bus ride to downtown and 15 min drive to the airport.
Bus stops are only a couple of blocks away from my house. Our house is on a bus line #4 and #6 via N. Mississippi biz district to downtown and Yellow Max Train (To Downtown/Airport).

The house was charming and clean and just as described. There are also beautiful and cozy front and back yards with plenty of room to sit and appreciate the day. While Portland is easy to get around in, the neighborhood was a bit further from downtown than I would have preferred, but the public trans is good regardless. Riko was attentive and available. Zero complaints!
Nice Neighborhood. Very convenient for public transportation, but that seems to be the norm for Portland. We really enjoyed the house. It had everything we needed.
Riko's house was beautiful! Close to Mission street, very clean and cozy. She was a great communicator, and I was always able to get in touch with her if we needed anything. However, we were only in the house for 48 hours, and she stopped by four separate times unannounced, coming in and walking around while we were in towels and pajamas, and making us feel a little bit uncomfortable.
Thank you for your review Nina. And it was great hosting you at our guesthouse. My apology on making you feel somewhat uncomfortable for my visit however, just to be clear for our future guests, I normally don't stop by at all unless guests needs me to. And the reason for my visit was that I received complaint from my cleaning crew due to our mis-communicated late check out. My cleaning crew came to the house to start cleaning and you were still having lunch and I needed to sort things out since I have another guests checking in in a few hours. I didn't stop by 4 times unnoticed during your stay. Again Nina, my apology on making you somewhat uncomfortable due to this incident.
We had great time in Riko's house. We only used the main floor bedrooms and found them pretty comfortable. We loved having a kitchen where we could make some meals for our kids. The neighbourhood is quiet and friendly and we have enjoyed meeting new people on our walks.
Great and comfy place to stay in Portland! One slight down side is that it's a bit far from downtown, but if you have a car, it won't be a problem.
Thank you for your review Felix! I would like to clarify the location of the house for future guests. Location is so relative to your expectation but here is the fact. My house is centrally located. It takes -7-8 min by car to downtown (or 20min by bus). Very close to historic business districts called Mississippi Ave or Alberta Arts which are full of great restaurants, shops and cafes. Also, if you are coming from Airport. It is 10 min drive from the house. Some great restaurants and markets in walking distance also.
Riko was a very thoughtful host. When we arrived at the house the cleaning crew had missed a few things; it was late so I left it alone. Riko called in the morning to check in and I let her know what was going on and she had someone come out and take care of it immediately. She even did a walk through herself and brought us ice cream.
The house is cozy and clean, although we stayed only one night, we had a good experience here.

Hi there ! Thanks for checking my profile. My name is Riko and I am originally from Kyoto Japan. Living in this loveliest town in Portland for 14 years. I work for Portland' Regional Goverment to make this city even more awesome place. I commute to my work by either bike or bus evreyday. I'm super well travelled. Travelling is my #1 passion in my life. So, I know what travellers' needs are. I know Portland super well. I can give you a ton of great recommendation. I always had this dream of run my own B&B in somewhere tropical. Well, Portland is nowhere near tropical but I hope to get a good start and positive hosting experience with Airbnb. Thanks for reading this and look forwrad to meeting you all!
