Interaction with guests
I make myself available to answer questions, give advice or address any problems that may arise, but my general policy is to let guests enjoy their privacy. I thoroughly enjoy meeting my guests, and have made some great friends via airbnb, but my own life is jam packed with activity and I realize that people are not coming to visit me :-).
Home is on a quiet, lovely street in one of the most desirable close-in SE neighborhoods in town. One block to public transit; 6 blocks to great coffee (Albina Press) and drinks (Sapphire Hotel); minutes to Mt. Tabor Park, Hawthorne or Belmont, by foot or bike. Plenty of free on street parking, directly in front of house.
Easy to get around via public transit, on foot or by bike, depending on your destination.
My goal is to make your stay comfortable and hassle free. With a separate entrance to the apartment, you are able to come and go as you please. We do ask that you use common courtesy in regards to late night noise, as our neighbors are our friends, as we'd like to keep it that way :).
We are an active, health conscious family, and have a very strict no smoking policy. Smoking of any kind is prohibited inside or outside of our home.
We provide receptacles for garbage, recycling and compost and ask that you follow some simple guidelines in separating your trash. We will also provide you with some great guides/resources to local shops, restaurants, public transit and arts and entertainment. I'm available to answer any additional questions or address any issues that may arise during your stay. Other than that, we're looking forward to meeting you!
I'm a creative professional and the mother of two fun-loving kids who has been living in Portland since 1995. After spending a decade in New York CIty, pursuing a film and video career, I was lured to this city by the natural beauty, lifestyle, arts & culture and the other like-minded folks who've made Portland their home.
My time is spent juggling the joys and demands of work, my kids, my dog and good friends. I'm a creative and inquisitive soul who loves art and culture, outdoor adventure, good conversation and great friends. I adore this great city and look forward to sharing my intimate knowledge of Portland with airbnb travelers.
