About this listing
This is one private and cozy bedroomwith a full size bed under the eaves and a skylight in a great 1920's bungalow style duplex. The room is upstairs and has plenty of privacy. The bathroom is on the main floor and shared when the other airbnb room is occupied. So far it seems to work out well. I think you will find me a welcoming host. I look forward to meeting many new guests and sharing my home with them.
You will have access to our beautiful updated kitchen. Share the comfortable living room or retreat to your bedroom upstairs for a serene rest.
Interaction with guests
You will have as much privacy as you would like. I usually check in with you to make sure you are comfortable and then you are on your own unless you need me. I am happy to offer recommendations for local sites and help with navigating this area if you need it.
We are few blocks from NW 23rd hip coffee shops, upscale boutiques and restaurants. The trendy Pearl shopping district with it's restaurants, shops and art galleries is blocks away. You can walk or public transportation is easy to take from here.
Some of the great Portland parks biking and hiking trails are easily accessible as well.
Wallace park, a grade school and a public tennis court are across the street and we are blocks away from Forest Park, the largest park inside city limits in the whole country.
We are near Portland's famous Washington Park, Rose Test Garden, Japanese Garden, and Forest Park with it's numerous trails and hiking opportunity.
We are close in to the city in a central location with great access to the freeways and public transportation. It is a 20-30 minute taxi or Uber ride from the PDX airport. You can ride the MAX train in from the airport and transfer to bus #77 to a stop just a few blocks away from the house.
Other things to note
Parking is on street if you have a car. We are close to public transportation and while here in this neighborhood you probably won't need to drive. There is a bin in the fridge to keep food and a shelf in the pantry if you want to cook while here.
We have a great kitchen and love to share the space but expect all dishes to be washed and the counter tops cleaned off when finished cooking. Kitchen closes at 10:00 pm so other household members can get some sleep.
Please keep all food and drink in the dining kitchen areas and not in the bedroom
No late night partying here since this is an early to bed household
No smoking of any kind on the premises
No illegal drugs
No pets allowed due to allergies
I live in the NW district close to the center of town because it is easily accessible from almost anywhere in Portland. About 20 minutes from the airport. My great grandparents built homes in this neighborhood when it was first being developed and I have always loved this section of town. I moved to my present home in the Nob Hill district about 14 years ago.
I was an interior designer for many years and I also teach watercolor at the local community center.
I can't live without the ocean and the mountains each an hour and a half drive from here. I love the beautiful Columbia Gorge (1/2 hour) and hiking in Forest Park (minutes away).
I enjoy people from all walks of life and love to travel when given the chance.
