The Space

One bedroom, private and cozy with skylight in great 1920's duplex. You will have access to our beautiful updated kitchen. Share the comfortable living room or retreat to your bedroom upstairs for a serene rest.
We are close in to the city in a central location with great access to freeways and public transportation. 10-15 minute taxi ride from the PDX airport.
We are near the NW 23rd district's hip coffee shops and upscale boutiques and restaurants. The trendy Pearl shopping district and art galleries is blocks away and public transportation is easy to take from here.
Some of the great Portland parks biking and hiking trails are easily accessible as well.
There is a park and a public tennis court across the street and we are blocks away from Forest Park, the largest park inside city limits in the whole country.
Near to Portland's famous Washington Park, Japanese Garden, and Powell's bookstore.
Street parking.
I think you will find me a welcoming host. I look forward to meeting many new guests and sharing my home with them.

  • Alleyn was an incredibly accommodating host. She waited up past ten o'clock for us to arrive, and then even took time to explain the surrounding area and provide us with maps and suggestions. Her home was beautiful, great shared bathroom and kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and her place is in an incredible location very close to the shops and restaurants on 23rd. We wish we could have stayed longer!

  • My friend and I had a wonderful time staying with Alleyn during our short visit to Portland. Alleyn was so warm and welcoming. She took great pains to help us get situated and to give us recommendations and directions. Her home is charming and ideally located. We loved exploring the Nob Hill neighborhood. I would highly recommend her as a host to anyone visiting Portland!

  • We had a perfect time in Portland staying at Alleyn's place!
    As all the other reviews had promised, Alleyn is doing everything she can to make your stay a nice one. She's very friendly, can tell you everything about Portland and will point you to places that are worth seeing. These places are never far away, her house is located in the beautiful Nob Hill neighbourhood, just a short walk from 23rd street with its shops and restaurants and just 15-20 minutes from downtown (and even less by streetcar).

    Our room was clean and nicely decorated, absolute recommendation!

  • Wonderful experience as always at Alleyn's place!

  • Everything was impeccably clean and organized, there were lots of space in the kitchen to cook meals, there was also abundant space with the drawers and cabinets in the bedroom for storing your own personal items. This is the home of an interior designer and that certainly shows in the artistic and functional placement of the furniture in every room.

    Alleyn was very flexible in terms of the arrival time and procedure; she was willing to stay late past 10PM to get me settled when I arrived quite late at night. She was very knowledgeable about the surrounding local area, including favorite tourist spots and restaurant spots. She had collected lots of tourist guidebooks in the dining and living room area for guests to read. She went above and beyond expectations.

    The neighborhood itself is very quiet and family-oriented. The house is right across the street from a school and a large park.

  • This was a sweet little upstairs room. Alleyn was a wonderful host, very helpful with local recommendations. The location is close to all the great places on 23rd, but enough off the beaten path to be quiet and have ample street parking.

  • Alleyn was a great host and has a beautiful home....so close to the fun Nob Hill area. I really enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.

  • My stay in Alleyn's lovely home was perfect. I was in Portland for two days for a work trip and she provided everything I needed, from maps of the area to the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! Thank you so much, Alleyn!

  • Alleyn's home was both very warm and clean. She has an espresso machine in which we can make our own Latte and she definitely knows Portland very well. We took her suggestion of having brunch at Besaw's which was amazing. Only a couple of walks away from Alleyn's home. A great place to stay if you want to be nearby the awesome foods of Portland.

About
I live in the NW district close to the center of town because it is easily accessible from almost anywhere in Portland. Ten 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 10 years ago. I have been an interior designer for many years. I also teach watercolor at the local community center. I can't live without the ocean (an hour and a half drive from here), the mountains (an hour's drive), the beautiful Columbia gorge (1/2 hour) and Forest Park (minutes away). I love my new Ipad mini and am learning to use it from the smart kids at the apple store. I want to adopt them. I enjoy people from all walks of life and love to travel when given the chance.
