About the digs:
*Your room has a vanity desk, closet, north-facing windows, side table, lamps and a comfy full-sized bed with pillow-top mattress.

*There is an upstairs bathroom with shower, shared only when there is another booking in the king sized suite (Portland Soul Central, Porch Time!) and a downstairs bathroom with clawfoot tub,
plus a well-cookware-stocked shared kitchen.
(Yes, coffee pot included and a Cafe 1 block away!)

*We may have a spare cruiser bike or two to loan you if you desire.
(Just lock 'em up right 'n tight to avoid the unmentionable!)

~The Neighborhood elaboration:
The Rose City Park neighborhood is a sweet one, adjacent or near to the Beaumont-Wilshire/Fremont Street, Alameda, Hollywood, Alberta Arts and Cully areas.
A clear day stroll a few blocks southeast of this porch brings you to the ridge of city owned Rose City Golf Course and a beautiful view of Mount Hood!

Very comfortable, safe, tasty (walking distance food, pubs, jazz, all convenient! Great neighbors, vibe) neighborhood close enough to all "quadrants" of our fair Rose City to be a handy central point for sampling the nuances of all Portland's flavorful pockets.

Easy Public transportation (tri-met bus) access just a half block away. Hollywood Max station a ten-minute stroll (unless you stop to sample beer from the brew pub en route i.e. Laurelwood Public House, Moon and Sixpence Pub, Gustav's or any of the dozens of restaurants, shops and markets along the way... NE Sandy Blvd, NE Fremont Avenue and NE Alberta Street are replete!).

Interaction with Guests

If we are all around at the same time, I enjoy conversation and would love to offer tips on your adventure if you need them. If not, no sweat- I assume most who come here are fairly autonomous, independent travelers...as has been the predominant case in the past!
Essentially: choose your own adventure!
If I am out of town, I will usually let you know in advance, but if you really are hankering for a sit down conversation with me, do let me know and we'll try to connect our schedules while you're here.

  • Leo and her house are simply magnificent. There is really no better word. She is a perfect airbnb host: friendly, warm, and as ready to help as you need. Her home is a dream, and I highly recommend her place to anyone wanting a great place to stay with true Portland artistic flair!

    April 2014
  • Thanks to Leo and Bill, my trip to Portland, OR was pleasant and eventful. The house was comfortable and beautiful to behold. Its location in the North East section was perfectly situated for any location one desired. Leo and Bill are a warm and natural couple and I felt at home from the second I walked in the door until I left one month later.
    I will definitely make a point of staying with them in the future when I find myself in the area.

    October 2013
  • We couldn't recommend more Leo's place. We had a such lovely stay with a comfy bedroom, really nice bathroom, wonderful front porch to hang out, a cute little garden in the backyard and an amazing host. The perfect way to enjoy Portland. We would definitely go back to Leo's place next time we would visit Portland.

    September 2013
  • My first Air B&B experience and it was wonderful! Neighborhood was very quiet. Everything was accurate as described. I felt very welcome in Leo's home and felt like I met new friend.

    August 2013
  • Leo was a terrific host. She provided a true Portland experience in a beautiful 100 year old home. She was warm and welcoming and made sure that we had what we needed. She shared her home freely with us including kitchen, living room, front porch, and a wonderful piano which I had a few chances to play. I will definitely check with Leo on availability the next time I travel to Lincoln.

    July 2013
  • Leo's place was perfect for my needs. Easy access to public transportation, comfortable bed, quiet sleeping, clean living. Leo was super helpful and friendly.

    July 2013
  • Great stay, great person don't hesitate to make this a place to rest your head and enjoy Portland

    July 2013
  • Leo was a great host, enthusiastic and very eager to help.
    She has a very welcoming and beautiful home. Her location was not too far off from popular districts, but they weren't exactly close by either. Luckily, Leo is kind enough to provide bikes for you, if needed. I was fortunate enough to have a car.

    July 2013
  • Leo was a great and friendly host! Beautiful, comfortable house. Lots of tips for cool stuff around town. Super helpful and accommodating. Borrowed one of her old bikes, great way to get around and see Portland!

    June 2013
  • My stay with Leo was my first experience with airbnb and I was thrilled. She is good people -- warm and friendly. She knows a ton about her home town, Portland, which quickly made me feel like it was my hometown. Without the responsibilities! The room I had was lovely. I'm already looking at my calendar for a chance to go back and stay again. I have more exploring to do in Portland and basing myself at Leo's is going to make it that much more fun!

About
Howdy Do! Big Fan of people here, glad to meet and have at least brief interactions and cerebral interludes with the whole sh'bang and gamut of characters this planet provides. Travel feeds me well. Another way to get that vitamin supplement from life in the times between travelings is to be part of another's adventure in some small way. Hence, my own fondness for travel and the moments of feeling at home in the most remote stretches of the world is what brings me to AirBnB. I have warm, inviting space to spare, as well as energy and ideas about this pretty city that I dug so much I had to buy a little plot in it for myself and to SHARE with YOU! Portland is beautiful. I hope to make your travel far more enjoyable with a relaxing home base to replenish in between forays into the wild fray! I do a little work from the home a couple days a week, but it ought never interfere with your autonomous fun having whilst here. Let me know if I can help you with anything. Personally~ I'm an easy-moving, joyful, well-adjusted, silly critter, musician, painter, cook, writerly sort, interested in health and wholeness, Chinese herbal medicine (the eternal study continues!) and Acupuncture. I'm a traveler, an explorer, innate documentarian and story gatherer. I'm handy, oft DIY-style, prefer repurposing and re-using things and building materials in my projects. I appreciate, to the point of deep reverence, the natural world's offerings and feel compelled to protect it with conscious consumption and recycling etc. I love clever design, architecture and texture in living/ working/ growing spaces as well. Fond of dirt, making food and flora in it. Plenty to do in the loosely sketched canvas that a new piece of land provides. If it suits your fancy, feel free to join me gardening during your stay. It's always fun to putter about in the yard with folks! See you soon, with any luck! -Leo PS~ Incase you've wondered: I think I've got a good lead on what the meaning of life is. Wanna hear it? To Give Exchange and Explore Loving Energy as Earnestly, Thoroughly and Frequently as Possible is Why We are Here. Feels about right to me, so I figure we may as well move about the cabin in kindness, gathering recipes, hugs, soul food, stories and songs along the way!
