This cozy & comfortable 2 bedroom house with newly remodeled airy kitchen has all the amenities needed for entertaining or just a peaceful evening at "home". You & your pet can also take advantage of the 1block walk to the park & the fenced backyard!

The Space

This adorable little house will make you feel right at home with it's fun, funky mix of old and new.
The living room welcomes you to gather around the large coffee table for a hot toddy and a game of Apples to Apples in the vintage parlor chairs. Or you can kick back on the leather sofa and catch up on all of your favorites shows on the flat screen.

The cute kitchen is plenty spacious and boasts all updated appliances including a dishwasher, oven and stove, microwave, blender, coffee maker, grinder, and toaster oven. Oh! And a comfy Chef Mat to stand on. Next to the window you will find the perfect spot at the mod dining table to read the morning paper or sit back after a hearty family meal. It's my favorite room in the house for sure! And fortunately there is also a laundry room; complete with washer, dryer, iron and board that you are welcome to use.

The small "master" bedroom Is fitted with a queen bed and the other has a comfy innerspring futon. I will have plenty of blankets, sheets, towels, etc. here for you too.

In the bathroom there is a small tub; more ideal for showering as well as storage available for all of your toiletries.

The house is within a 5 minute walk from the heart of Woodlawn which has some fantastic spots to shop, drink, dance, and dine:

-Firehouse Restaurant, somewhat romantic with good service (book your table same day)
-Woodlawn Coffee House, people watching, yummy breakfast
-Breakside Brewery, to grab a bite and catch up on the game
-Good Neighbor Pizza, laid back and late night too
-P's & Q's Market serves meals and some grocery items
-Upcycles Bike Shop, some new bikes and repairs
-The Village Ballroom, Zumba, square dancing & Ecstatic Dance
-Tamale Boy, has outdoor seating too
-Bassato Gelateria, 12 rotating flavors of gelato
-Koken Market, for almost any beer you want, snacks
-Café Eleven, art, coffee, lunch & some gluten free pastries
-Oregon Public House, the nation's 1st nonprofit pub
-The High Water Mark, grab a beer and a pool stick
-Tamale Boy, brand new spot w/ outdoor seating
-Bassato Gelateria, gelato spot-rotates 12 flavors

The Alberta Arts District is also just minutes away so you can hop on a bike and be right in the middle of the jam-packed Last Thursday Art Walk or make a day of it with shopping, dinner and some delicious ice cream from the infamous Salt & Straw. Then come "home" to your quieter retreat where you can just relax and enjoy small, simple home life and listen to the trains roll by in the distance.

Flying in? This spot is only 10 minutes from the airport. And if you let me know when you book, I can come retrieve you by minivan from the airport or train station for $20; this might be especially relevant if you have bikes, lots of bags or equipment. And, apparently some cabbies are charging folks $40 for just this 10 minute ride. Let me know!

And while in Portland, you may want some wheels! Well, this location is very close to Zipcars and you can sign up with them or Car2go on their sites in advance of your stay. But if you want to explore the city on two wheels, Everybody Bike Rentals or Ebikes ( electric bike rentals) are the spots to hit first (10 min. by bus). They provide helmets and locks too!

  • Andrée was an awesome host and her description of her rental being "charming" is dead on. The house is walking distance to tons of great restaurants and two parks, which our three-year-old daughter loved. The next time we're in Portland, we'll be looking up Andrée first on AirBnB. All-in-all our stay in Portland was FANTASTIC and Andrée's charming rental played a big part in our positive experience.

  • Great place to stay for myself, wife and baby. Very clean and comfortable. We had a great weekend and really enjoyed the neighborhood and access to the rest of Portland. Thanks Andrée!

  • It was a pleasure to meet Andree. She was prompt, clear, and friendly in her communications, and even though I was arriving late on a weeknight she arranged to welcome me at the house.

    The house is walking distance from a handful of good restaurants, including a full-service coffee shop with excellent pastries and savory dishes. We were an easy drive (and an easy bus ride? we didn't try it) from the other neighborhoods we wanted to visit.

    Andree is a talented interior decorator, and I appreciated the style she brought to furnishing the house.

  • Andrée house was a perfect lodging solution for myself and my two dogs. The location is excellent, close to everything with a quaint neighborhood setting. The house is well equipped and Andrée is a welcoming host. I would definitely stay here again, and again....

  • Though I did not meet Andrée personally, she was very easy to coordinate with via text and email so that my friends who arrived before me could get into the place first. The neighborhood is convenient by car for the airport and most of NW. On foot, there is a little bit to explore in Woodlawn within a few blocks, and there are major bus routes within a few blocks as well. The house is small but it was all we really needed and the décor was tasteful. It is important to be aware that the twin bed is pretty small, so it may not be a good fit for taller people, but overall this space was just what we needed: somewhere quiet to sleep, shower, and recharge between outings.

  • Andrée was a perfect host, available when I needed her, but gave me the privacy I desired. Her home was charming, well decorated and had all of the amenities I needed. Bonus, the most comfortable bed ever! Thanks Andrée :)

  • Great little house in a wonderful area. We will be back.

    January 2014
  • Andrée is a wonderful host. She quickly responded to any questions or issues we had, and had great suggestions for local restaurants.

    The house is very cute and in a good neighborhood. Lots of good restaurants within 5-10 minutes drive and easy access to freeways and downtown.

    Andrée has set the house up with a very comfortable queen size bed, a great kitchen and it is all very neat and tidy. I highly recommend Andrée's property.
