Cozy Furnished Studio in Brooklyn

House - Private room · SE Cora St, Portland, OR 97202, United States

The Space

This private upstairs studio apartment consists of a spacious bedroom and adjoining living area. Huge windows overlook the backyard/garden, welcoming lots of sunlight and fresh air. A private bathroom is not connected but is only a door away. The entire space is newly remodeled with bamboo floors, sliding doors, custom blinds, ceiling fan and light fixtures. Rooms are fully furnished with a plush king bed, 42" LCD TV, comfortable reading chair, pub table and mini fridge. The mini fridge can be used to store any foodstuffs you bring/acquire; it also hosts our cash only Honor Bar! Wi-fi internet is included; I also have a small collection of DVDs for your viewing pleasure. Upon arrival, you will be assigned your own personal key-code to our electronic front door lock so that you can come and go as you please. There is a washer/drying on premise. Please inquire about laundry prices.

The house is located in the charming and accessible Brooklyn neighborhood. Several parks, pubs, grocery and convenient stores are within walking distance - my neighborhood scored 74 on the walk-ability index! For longer journeys, you'll have convenient access to 4 bus lines, 2 within a couple of blocks from the place. Lines #9, 19 and 33 will all drop you downtown in 10-15 min (sometimes less!). If you prefer to drive, a Flexcar is parked just 3 blocks away. And there are always Car2Go's parked within a few blocks.

If you wish to stay, send me a quick message introducing yourself and what brings you to Portland.

A final note - I live on-premise but the room is very private, as attested by our guests in their comments.

I look forward to hearing from you!

  • Our host met us and conducted a tour of the facilities explaining the details. He also researched the closing times for three local restaurants for us. The most pleasant surprise was the well stocked honor bar. In a time when it's hard to carry liquids on airplanes this filled a need, even if it was only for Sprite and V8. The only unpleasant surprise was that the gorgeous flat-screen tv didn't get local broadcast for news and weather. (this fact was listed in the write-up, but I had read too many write-ups and forgot it) The in-house wi-fi let us use our laptop for these functions. Watching DVD's before bedtime was wonderful.

    A very comfortable stay in our daughter's neighborhood while we helped her move from one house to another by entertaining her two little girls - great fun for grandparents!

  • Our stay with Darin and Becca was perfect. They were at home to welcome us when we arrived in Portland, and the guest rooms were extremely neat and comfortable. Their recommendations for restaurants were great, and they gave us many helpful tips on how to use public transit. Several bus lines stop near their house, and it only takes 10-15 minutes to get downtown. To top it off, they were both wonderful people and it was a pleasure to meet them.

  • Darin and Becca were great hosts! They had excellent recommendations for good restaurants and brew pubs in the area. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and very private. We would love to make it back to Portland to stay again!

  • This was great. The room was comfortable and clean and the hosts were excellent at communicating.

    September 2012
  • This facility exceeded our expectations. The whole apartment was clean, attractive and comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and the hosts are accomdating but not in your face. We'll stay again whenever possible.

  • Beautiful space. Exquisitely clean. Great and extending hosts. Coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance. Well priced. Once we figured out to close the blinds so the neighbors night lights didn't shine in the room we were completely content through and through.

  • My wife and I really enjoyed our time at Darrin and Becca's. We were in Portland visiting family and friends. Their place provided a comfortable as well as perfectly located home base for us to head out from and come back to. Darrin and Becca are excellent hosts, very friendly and open with the house and very professional in how the rooms are decorated and maintained. We had to stay in two chain motels on our way up to and coming back from Portland. Darrin and Becca's is twenty times (seems excessive but it's true) better than the rooms we stayed in. The care they put into making their place special for guests is evident.
    We would recommend Brooklyn BNB to anyone wanting location, comfort, and ease.

  • Becca and Darin provided a wonderful, cozy space in their Portland home. We felt right at home and they answered all our questions with a smile. I would encourage anyone who needs a space in Portland to check them out. They know what Portland has to offer and always willing to accommodate! Thanks for a comfortable stay!

    August 2012
  • Darin and Becca's place was very clean, comfortable and convenient. They were kind hosts. We enjoyed our stay.

    June 2012
  • Darin and Becca have put a lot of effort in to making this a top class listing on AirBnB. They have a beautiful and welcoming home, while the upstairs suite feels very private. Very clean, professional and kind hosts. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Portland.

About
I like playing and watching football (soccer), traveling, good food/wine/beer, most anything you can do outdoors. I am excited to be a part of the AirBnB community - to explore new destinations and friendships, as well as to share what I love most about our "big town" of Portland, Oregon. I'm very respectful and curious of other cultures. I love to learn new languages. Life mottos are never be afraid and everything in moderation.
