About this listing
Cozy bedroom on main floor of 1920's bungalow next to kitchen. Although the room is small the queen bed is very comfortable. Updated kitchen and bath. Bathroom is shared when other guests are present.
Trendy NW 23rd ave neighborhood.
My home is a 1920's style bungalow in NW Portland's Nob Hill neighborhood. While here, you can share the comfortable living room or retreat to your own room for a well deserved rest. The kitchen is available if you would like to cook but I find most people end up sampling all the great restaurants and eateries close by. Your room is next to the bathroom and kitchen and has a comfortable queen bed and an amoire to hold your belongings.
One thing to note; When there is another guest in the other airbnb room the bathroom will be shared but it seems to work out just fine.
I look forward to meeting many new guests and sharing my home with them.
Shared common spaces are a newly remodeled kitchen and bathroom, dining area and living room. In the nice weather I have a little side porch with table and chairs for morning coffee.
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 the area if you need it.
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
Some of the best Portland parks biking and hiking trails are easily accessible as well. Forest Park and Macleay Park, and Washington Park are nearby for hiking and biking
Wallace Park with a public tennis court is across the street and we are not far from Portland's Chinese Garden, Rose Test Garden, Japanese Garden, and Powell's bookstore. Our local health food store, library and local businesses are all easy walking distance
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.
