large, sunny room in farmhouse

House - Private room · N Blandena St, Portland, OR 97217, United States

The Space

Large, sunny room on the ground floor of a beautifully restored N. Portland farmhouse . This room can accommodate couples if I'm not too full; send an inquiry! The house is on 1/2 acre that is a Platinum certified Backyard Habitat and registered rain garden.
We are in the Overlook neighborhood, close to MAX; you can walk to the river, Adidas World Village, cool eateries, brewpubs, and the Mississippi Arts district. Be sure to ask about any bicycling, Blues, or beer events while you are here!
I keep extra bikes on hand to rent, as this is a great way to get around Portland, and have secure bike storage if you've brought yours along.
Try some home roasted coffee, Greek yogurt with fruits from the garden, or grill on a salt block outside. Cooking is encouraged here!
Leela, a German Shepard, and Mzcora, a sweet indoor-outdoor kitty, live here also, and will welcome you. There is always something going on in the garden, and you are welcome to join in, or just hang out and enjoy a green, peaceful refuge in the city.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Taizz is awesome. She knows a lot of fun stuff to do in Portland and all the good beer spots. Her house is great and even her pets are fun. I stayed in her house for a little over a month and had a great time and always felt welcome. You should probably come and stay with her.

  • I needed a place to transition from living in Portland to moving to Australia and was fortunate to be able to use airbnb for the service. Taizz lives in a great part of town. It's easy access to Alberta/Killingsworth stores and the Max line to town. It's a quiet neighbourhood and are a few restaurants within walking distance which is nice. The house is lovely and the garden, which I didn't make too much use of because of the weather. I enjoyed staying here.

  • I recognized that as Airbnb, nowhere else exists better than Taizz's place in Portland. She is always warm, kind, and good cooker. We felt like our home. Her place is super clean as usual. Leera(German Shepard) and the Boss(cat) welcomed us.

  • This was the third time I have stayed with Taizz and it was just as wonderful as the last. Taizz is always so welcoming and offers a clean and safe environment for me to stay while I am in town for work. Thanks again, Taizz!

  • What a treasure Taizz is! Her house is lovely -- lots of fine details. It's in a great location. I could walk to the river, or to the grocery store, or to any number of restaurants and food carts. It's a quiet, dead-end street, and the yard overflows with figs, plums, raspberries, and who knows what else.

    Taizz herself is better than all of that. She's generous and articulate. She's made a place that is deeply welcoming. Her dog is a charmer. Her cat comes and goes as she pleases. I even met her son, who came by to do some lawn work. I felt like one of the family, which is just great.

    I can't think of any ways her place could be improved. It's perfect.

  • My extended stay was a delight in so many ways. Welcoming me into her home and life,Taizz also enticed me into the magic of Portland - she is truly a warm, generous and charming host. Oh, and Leela is now my favourite dog.

    August 2013
  • Taizz was a wonderful hostess. She has a great kitchen and and is fun to cook with! The house has a table outside overlooking the garden, from which you can pick fresh berries and spices. I stayed there for a month, and it was a great experience!

  • This was my first Air BnB experience and I'm glad I did it! Taizz was extremely welcoming, insightful, and generous during my stay in Portland. The house was gorgeous and my room was very spacious. With guidance from Taizz, I got around town without any trouble. The MAX station is super close and there were great places to eat and drink within walking distance from the house. I felt so comfortable in Taizz's home and she went well above and beyond what I expected from my host. From her amazing coffee to her home brewed Kombucha, Taizz knew how to make me feel welcome. When I return to Portland, I will only stay there! Forget the hotels, Taizz's Farmhouse is the best!

  • My third time stay: I felt so comfortable, just like my home : )
    Taizz was so kind and very accommodating, helpful host. Also her lovely pets too. Looking forward to next visiting so soon!

    March 2013
  • Taizz was super friendly, accommodating and helpful. She clearly loves to sample the many varieties that life has to offer, whether that be culture people, food, or otherwise. She cultivates an open and interactive environment more than just a rental place, so if you'd like to stay in a home rather than a house, this is your place.
