Grand reopening with newly remodeled kitchen!
Come and experience the real Portland. From the comfort of our 1907 house, it's an easy hop to just about everywhere!
There's easy access to bus and train lines, bike around town, or just stroll the Alberta Arts district - there's a park with a playground just up the street, and our Walk Score is 86. There's plenty of free street parking in our neighborhood, so your car will have a great place to sleep too.
Ordered too much food at one of Portland's 10,000 great restaurants? Come in through your own private entrance, and pop your swan-shaped tinfoil creations into the refrigerator. When you feel hungry again, there's a full kitchen complete with pots and pans, microwave, coffee maker, and all the dishes and utensils you'll need. Tucked into the nook in the back you'll find a washer and dryer, so you don't have to pack your entire wardrobe.
Looking for a quiet evening in? The cozy living room features an electric fireplace, a bookshelf stocked with light reading, and an entertainment system with a flat screen TV and DVD player. We even have some a Wii and some games for you, and a Netflix streaming account you can access through the Wii.
Feeling sleepy? The bedroom features a king-size bed with a memory foam pad, soft sheets, and a down comforter, and the sofa in the living room converts to a full-size bed. Have a crowd? No problem: there are two cots in the closet. Young kids? No problem! We have a pack-and-play, a high chair, and a full-size bath tub.
When you wake up, you'll probably be hungry again. Feel free to eat your leftover pizza, but we'll also have micro-roastery coffee and breakfasty items for you. There are a couple great grocery stores within a mile, so you can stock our kitchen with all your favorite foods, and cook while you are here, if you feel so inclined.
Everything you find in the apartment is for our guests to use. You will have your own unique code to get into your apartment; no keys to keep track of and carry around. Be advised that our little family lives upstairs, and the floors aren't made of soundproofed concrete, but we do our best to keep quiet.
Whenever we travel, we like to manage our own time, so we give you lots of space to do your own thing. You have your own entrance, so we can avoid those awkward half-conversations. If you'd like to chat, feel free to come find us. We both work from home, so are around most of the time.
Our neighborhood is great, there are SO many fantastic restaurants and great shopping areas and several monthly community events! We are within a quick walk to both the Alberta Arts District and North Williams St. Just a bit further out is N. Mississippi Avenue. The apartment is also just a short 2 miles up the road from the Convention Center and Rose Quarter. A quick bus ride whisks you there! If you have pets or kids, there's a park just a 1/2 block away where they can expend some of that energy.
If you want to go somewhere else, there's a bus stop about 100 yards away, and from there it's a quick hop to MAX. If you have your bike, we are right along one of the major Portland bike-ways.
Let us know if you need a late or early check-in or -out, and we'll try to make it work.
We love our house. Please, no smoking.
Ben and Becky were incredibly welcoming personally and with what they set up for us in the apartment. We arrived late at night and appreciated being able to arrive on our own timeline. The kitchen was stocked with snacks, drinks, and even a bottle of wine. It was incredibly welcoming. The apartment was incredibly clean and organized. We loved the fire place (for the heat and the atmosphere). The bed and couch were comfortable. We all would recommend this place to our friends in the future.
Ben and Becky's place was great! The location was very central: an easy walk over to the Alberta Arts district and a quick bus downtown. Becky was really easy to communicate with and it was a breeze to checkin and checkout. They left us food for breakfasts and a bottle of wine, so nice! I would definitely recommend their place.
Ben and Becky were super responsive to our last minute booking. They answered all our questions and were very helpful. The suite is modern and stylish, with all the comforts of home. The location provides easy access to Portland sites and attractions. The breakfast provisions (bagels, coffee, juice, etc.) were a bonus that was greatly appreciated. Highly recommended.
This was a lovely, stylish, thoughtfully outfitted place. Quiet, comfortable, with wonderful hosts.
My family and I (two adults, a preschooler, and a baby) stayed at Becky and Ben's beautiful place for about 10 weeks this winter. The experience was fabulous. Not only is the apartment perfectly equipped (toys, books, games, extra toiletries, matches for birthday candles - anything and everything you would want in your own home is there) and ideally located (walking distance to numerous food and shopping options, also easy access via car or public transport to anywhere in the city) but Becky and Ben are great hosts. Any small problems we had they responded to within seconds, and otherwise remained out of our way entirely. It was easy to feel like the place was ours for the time we were there. All in all a fabulous experience - highly recommend for short or longer stays.
Very nice place! Hosts were very responsive! Neighborhood was fun to explore! We would return :)
This was one of the best places I've ever stayed at through AirBnB. Ben and Becky were great hosts, and they have put a lot of thought into making their apartment extremely comfortable and accommodating for their guests. The apartment was far above average in terms of appointments, the furniture, bed, linen, towels, kitchen supplies - everything - was all of the quality you would have in your own home, or better. We stayed for a month and were very glad we chose this place over other options. The location is great, in a quite neighborhood close to both Alberta and Williams Streets with tons of bars and restaurants, and less than 10 minutes by car from the central Portland districts like the Pearl and 23rd avenue. The apartment is a downstairs unit, but noise was from upstairs was never an issue. This apartment is in a great location, has fantastic, thoughtful, hosts, and has everything you could need and more, I would love to stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone considering it.
We are a thirty-something software engineer and photographer from Portlandia with two precocious kids and two adorable pugs. We love to explore new places, avoid the beaten path, and be adventurous when we travel. Also when we don't.
