I have a comfortable and spacious three bedroom house with elegant hardwoods throughout in which the upstairs two bedrooms are available for short term stays. The house is a classic 1920's bungalow with plenty of built-in storage, your own designated and reliable wifi network, a wood-burning fireplace, secluded back yard with a multi-variety bamboo hedge for privacy, laundry, dishwasher, a well equipped, foodie-friendly kitchen, updated bathroom, a long driveway for off-street parking, and a covered back patio dining space set-up with a large BBQ.
I don't rent these two rooms out to separate parties so anyone who stays at my house gets the upstairs all to themselves. That's two bedrooms plus two exterior closets, nicely insulated from downstairs sounds, as your own totally private zone. This could be ideal for a person who wants a bedroom plus a separate office / art / work space or two guests wanting room to spread out or looking for separate sleeping quarters. The west guest room is furnished with a nice firm queen-sized Ikea bed, a night stand on each side, and an Eames style lounge chair. The east guest room is furnished with a desk and chair, floor lamp, oodles of empty built-in shelving and drawers for storage as well as a futon couch which folds out into a full / double-sized bed and is topped with a new memory foam pad for added comfort. The shared bathroom is located just at the bottom of the stairs.
Included on each morning of your stay is a self-serve breakfast. Typically available are organic fresh apples and bananas, an assortment of cold cereals (also mostly organic), milk or milk substitute by request, oatmeal, usually coffee and always a variety of teas (green, black, & herbal).
The house has a convenient location on Ainsworth street between I-5 and Interstate avenue in North Portland. Outside of rush hour it takes only about 6 minutes to drive downtown. There is a New Seasons market and a stop for the yellow line Max train just 3 blocks away. New Seasons is like a smaller and more localized Whole Foods with better prices. The max train will whisk you downtown in about 13 minutes or north to the Portland Exposition Center in less time. A few blocks east is the gorgeous and historic Peninsula Park. Also nearby are bustling Mississippi and Alberta streets, the new Killingsworth food cart pod, and P.C.C.'s Cascade campus. Within a mile or two are also the University of Portland, Adidas North America headquarters, and Legacy Emmanuel Hospital.
You can take the Max train between my house and the airport for about $2.50 and without having to go downtown.
Guests traveling on business or in Portland for a wedding or other formal events will be glad to know that you'll have access to an iron, ironing board, hair dryer, and two full length mirrors.
Please let me know if I can answer any questions for you. Thanks for looking.

Upstairs bedrooms are usually the only ones available to guests but host was out of town and generously allowed us use of whole house.
My stay at Abraham's suite was my first experience with airbnb!
It was a wonderful restful place to be. The attic space was perfect- it felt like a small apartment. His home was very warm and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the shower had great water pressure. Anyone looking for a comfortable and spacious stay would enjoy Abraham's home!
Abraham was a great host - he made everything super easy and smooth! His place has a peaceful, thoughtful atmosphere and I would definitely stay again.
Abraham was more than accommodating during our stay in Portland. Not only did he provide above and beyond with housing, he also was a wealth of knowledge for what to do around town, and what to skip on. He was very easy going, and just as easy to chat with. I would recommend Abraham to any of my friends traveling in the area. Hopefully we can cross paths again soon. Thanks Abraham!
I traveled with two others and we enjoyed staying in Abraham's house. As he mentions, the two bedrooms are on the second floor. They're clean and simple. It's a cute house. Abraham provided excellent breakfast (delicious fresh fruit, cereal, coffee). Parking was easy.
We had a wonderful stay . The house was as advertised . We found it warm and welcoming . Our rooms were clean ,well furnished and the beds were very comfortable with clean linen .All the spaces were light filled and welcoming .
Abraham had asked ahead of time about preferences for breakfast items and he was caring and thoughtful through out our three week stay.
We made good use of the kitchen nearly every day and Abraham always informed us about his upcoming grocery shopping and asked about our preferences .
We always felt like welcome guests and that the house was our home away from home !
He was always helpful and at the same time was sensitive in assuring our privacy
We ill be back on our next stay in Portland

Abraham was super easy-going & helpful offering tailored suggestions of things to do or places to see. The old house is charming and easy to stay in as his instructions are clear and easy to follow. Definitely will be back!
This was my first Airbnb expirience and I could not have been happier with my host and his home! The house, guest rooms and bathroom are very clean and have a spacious, comfortable feel. Abraham is super personable, he gave me a tour of the home and some tips on the immediate neighborhood, after that I didn't see him much, which worked for me:) I would highly recommend this this accommodation!
Although I didn't meet the owner it was evident he is an experienced and considerate host. I had the place mostly to myself, which worked for my needs. Abraham called and gave me a tour of the essentials over the phone. This accommodation included healthy and fresh cold breakfast options.
The house is modestly furnished. Most important my bed and pillows were comfortable and having the upstairs to myself felt very private. The shared bathroom required a trip down the stairs.
Although I found the location convenient for my needs (near the Max line) the neighborhood is close to the I-5 freeway and traffic noise.
I come to Portland often and plan to stay here again.
We stayed four night's at Abraham's. It was our first airbnb experience and my husband and I were very happy. The house was very clean and breakfast choices were excellent. We had a nice balance of privacy, and if we had a question, Abraham was available. We will definitely stay at Abraham's again!
