Private bedroom with queen memory foam bed in very clean, minimalist modern home on quiet, bike route. One block away from MAX line leading into downtown Portland. Just minutes away from Overlook park, N. Mississippi st., Williams st., Alberta arts.
Beautiful, very clean and organized home that sits above street level, with a relaxing, enjoyable summer garden and grill to cook out. This a two person accommodation room with a shared house.
You will have your own private master bedroom and would be sharing bathroom, living room, dining room, kitchen with myself and Lloyd (my cat) as well as access to kitchen supplies, back yard, front porch. Flatscreen TV available with Netflix, Hulu Plus and DVD player.
Also if you have recreational equipment, I have a basement available to store items such as skies, camping gear, rafts etc. just give me a heads up about it.
Interaction with Guests
I will be around most of the time, probably cleaning or gardening, to answer any questions and give any suggestions of fun places to checkout.
Update: I had a good friend of mine temporarily staying with me for a couple months Febuary-April until she found a place, she has since found a place as of April 11th.
Located in a quiet N. Portland Overlook neighborhood on a bike route. My favorite ride is along Willamette Blvd heading north towards The University of Portland along the overlook. With plenty of local restaurants, food cart lots and parks within walking distance. Close to Moda Center, Rose Quarter for music events and Trailblazer games. Plenty of street side parking available.
The MAX line is one block away on Interstate Ave., with the Prescott stop being just a few blocks to catch the a ride and to get to/from the airport. There is plenty of street side parking available.
Biking is great here, located on a major bike route that connects to most other routes in the city.
Other Things to Note
French press coffee (the best coffee) old school espresso or stash tea is available.
Also, help yourself to any food, although I am vegan and mostly only have veggies, I am not offended by anyone who wants to cook meat products. No cooking of fish or seafood in my house.
No smoking in the house. Since I have a cat, I cannot accommodate any pets, sorry. No cooking of fish or any other seafoodish things, that stinks up the house and is hard to get out.
Shane accommodated me on very short notice, and everything worked out great. The place was very clean and orderly. The bed was comfortable. Shane was quite welcoming and friendly, even though my stay was for one night and I was in and out. Bonuses included interesting furniture throughout the house and a very friendly cat.
Shane provides a homey atmosphere that hails from mid-century and feels just like the house I grew up in combined with where I live now, only with a cooler cat.
And the bed, pillows and linens were perfectly orchestrated for a sweet sleep. Soft and restful!
Shane was a delightful host. I arrived late due to my flight cross country but he was available and welcoming. Shane maintains a clean and tidy home. Conversations with him can be as much or little as you want but are always enjoyable. The neighborhood is quiet, walkable and near the Yellow MAX line, which I took every day of my stay. I would stay at Shane's place again and highly recommend you give it a try.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Shane's place during our short trip to Portland. Shane was very responsive and friendly when we arrived. We were only there for a night, but we enjoyed our stay.
Staying at Shane's was great. Although we never met he was very accommodating. His home was lovely and the room was just as it appears in the listing too. The area was very accessible to public transportation, which made exploring quite convenient. I would definitely suggest staying here!
Short and sweet. I arived, met his roommate Jenny who gave me the key. Jenny was very kind and told me a few things about portland's public transportation. I was gone most of the day.
Un endroit idéal pour passer notre semaine à Portland ! : quartier résidentiel tranquille, station du MAX à moins 10 minutes, accès routier facile à un échangeur de l'Interstate 5 à 300 m, le tout à proximité du quartier animé de l'Alberta st...
Shane nous a chaleureusement accueilli dans sa maison qui est impeccable. Nous avons pu profiter de l'accès à la cuisine.
On s'est donc senti comme chez nous.
Bref à recommander !

From the mid-west originally, I have lived in many cities and use to visit Portland in the 90s, every time I said this is where I'm going to live when I'm ready to settle down. I have lived here since 2004 when I was presented a job opportunity. I have been in the coffee industry for almost 15 years. Love mid-century furniture and architecture style. Paul McCobb and Frank Lloyd Wright are amazing. I also have an instrumental studio music project on the side creating background music for film projects. Snowboarding in the winter, garden, rafting and biking in the summer with all the diversity that Portland has to offer.
