What a rad little place to call home during your visit in Portland! The house was better than described, super clean and tidy, with everything we needed for our stay. There was a great backyard area with a garden and plenty of seating for a few friends to hang out.
The best part of this house, however, is its unbelievable location! Literally a 30 second walk to Mississippi Ave, where there are tons of great shops, bars, restaurants, and coffee shops. Could not have been in a better spot.
The owner Anjali was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and made sure we felt right at home.
Highly, highly recommended, I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
We stayed at 'Fun Mississippi Av' for 5 days during the Craft Brewer's Conference. Our host was on the ball and helpful long before we arrived in Portland, and was able to guide us toward the overflowing opportunities to explore Portland's beer culture just steps away from our door. Anjali met us as we arrived and made sure that we had all we needed. The house was in good shape, clean and comfortable with more amenities than we needed. Buses and transportation was easy to access and made getting around very easy and economical. A great place in a great neighborhood!
I can not say enough wonderful things about this AirBnB experience, nor can I recommend Anjali's place highly enough! She met me to check in and explained where things where, handed me my key, and made the whole process a breeze! Her place is utterly charming and had everything I needed, and everything was very comfortable and easy to find. But the real cherry on top is the neighborhood. What a perfect little neighborhood, with wonderful boutiques, great restaurants, coffee chops, bars, a couple breweries, even a great music venue where I got to see a band I used to really love! And just a little further away, still easy walking distance, is food trucks, more restaurants and another brewery, etc. And yet when you're on Anjali's street, you feel like you're just in a quiet little neighborhood, despite being a block off the main drag! Getting to downtown or the conference center are a breeze with a bus line and a Max stop right there. I was in Portland attending a big conference, so it was a relief to be far enough from downtown to get away from other conference goers, but still have everything easily accessible, and a more local experience in a more neighboorhood-y part of Portland. I even joked to my husband that maybe Anjali wouldn't mind if he came out to join me and we just refused to leave. :) Would definitely stay again next time I'm in Portland, assuming we don't just up and move to the neighborhood ourselves!
Anjali was a very responsive and organized host! Everything was in place when we arrived and the process was smooth and easy. The location of this house is excellent for accessing all the cute shops and restaurants on Mississippi. We loved being right around the corner from Fresh Pot coffee shop and great spots like Radar and Blue Star Donuts. We had everything we needed in the house as far as bedding, dishes, towels, etc., and it was very clean. The only negative thing I can say is that the main bedroom mattress wasn't that comfortable. But to each sleeper her own mattress preference!
Yes! Being a block W of Mississippi Av at Shaver, you are in the heart of it all, yet secluded. The Queen mattress is firm. However, if you like it softer, we can throw a topper on it. So if there's any adjustments I can make for you to be most comfy, please let me know while you are here. It is my pleasure. Good cheer!
Anjali's house is absolutely adorable with an antique touch. The kitchen has everything you would ever need. Location is great -- the Mississippi street where all the fun shops and bars is just half a block away, but there also doesn't lack a piece of tranquility in the neighborhood.

About the Host, Anjali
I have such a great time hosting people from all over the world. It's like traveling while staying at home!
What's important to me as a host is that people get the most out of their stay here. Having lived here quite awhile, I am a font of info in a wide array of interests.
I love it when people feel at-home, playful and relaxed. And to see it in action, what more could a host want? For example, a guest wrote in chalk on the sidewalk in front of the house a little road map to my house and pointed to house "Paradise" How fun is that?
As a nano-bio,I am an artist, performer, RN-PhD, investor, entrepreneur, published author, host. mother, and GRAND mother. I love life and love creative expression.
Currently, my focus is upon multi-month leases, though short term stays are also graciously invited!
My property, "Mississippi Fun District", is great place to be in Portland with eats, treats and beats right around the corner. Home is secluded, yet in the middle of it all. Easy to zip around town via walk, bike, bus, light-rail, car.
My rentals are in a duplex, therefore in same building. Same address. When I am not traveling, I spend much of my time in the sunroom attached to the back end of the house and in the art studio at the back end of the property.
My raised beds grow food year around. I am part of collective that share crops. 50% of produce is shared with volunteers and a local Soup Kitchen. You may meet volunteer gardeners and pick up some gardening tips for your own garden!
I look forward to your stay here for your future travel plans to Portland!
