Come hang out at our guest house and wander Alberta Street...it's a cornucopia of funky and independent shops, galleries, bars & restaurants. We've got world famous pie, 5 kinds of Thai, an amazing tea shop, vegan bakery, co-op and guitar shop within a few blocks. Catch a flick at the Kennedy School or live music at the Alberta Street Pub or Alberta Rose Theater.
Every Last Thursday, we have a freewheeling art festival on the street. Last Thursday is a rich tradition where it's free to vend and attend. You'll see washboard bands, teen violinists, Native American drumming circles, fab art and funky attire right outside our front door!
We are on several major bus lines and one block from a designated biking boulevard. By car we are 10 minutes from the airport, Lloyd Center Mall, Convention Center and Light Rail and less than 15 minutes to downtown Portland.

This was my first experience staying at an Airbnb and I loved it. The house is very clean and comfortable. There is plenty of kitchen, bathroom and living space to accommodate all the guests. There was a food co-op and foodtrucks about 2 minutes walk away, aswell as a bus stop that took you directly downtown. I navigated the city with public transport, but I would have been far more mobile with a car.
Check in was self directed, and while I did not see Rochelle very often, she was always quick with her replies when I messaged her.
This was an excellent place to stay, and I would return.
This was a very lovely home to stay in. There was tea and a place to wait while the room was ready and it had everything we needed. The home is located on a street that is booming with new stores. It's a lively and beautiful place.
Had a really nice stay in Alberta, the other people were sociable and we hung out quite a bit. Slept really well in the shared room of 6. Kitchen is modern and lounge is comfortable. The whole place is very clean. The area is great and there is lots to see, good atmosphere. There is a bus that goes to downtown in about 20min. Nice, easy place to stay with no issues.
It was really nice, everything's clean, the room was cooled, the bed was good! And a really really friendly host. I would come back again!
Great place! Just as described in the ad. In a really cool part of town, and has everything you could need.
One of my favourite listings! Though I was in the shared room (6 persons mixed), I felt very comfortable and the place was really cosy, and well-equipped and maintained. Location cannot be faulted at all. Plus the hosts (Rochelle and Phoenix) were both very helpful and answered all my questions promptly. Super!

About the Host, Rochelle

I've lived all over Portland, but once I landed in the Alberta Arts district that was it. Even in a city known for 'different', Alberta pushed the free- and forward-thinking envelope just a little bit further.
I've worn a lot of different hats over the years, but right now I'm drawn to the intersection where art, activism and the cooperative movement meet. I think the Alberta neighborhood is a great template where we might develop and model sustainable local urban living--I'd love to see food planted up and down the alleys, Alberta Street turned into a permanent walking/shopping boulevard. Cottage industry coops of all stripes, art everywhere!
I'm happy to open our house to the fabulous folk who find their way to us. What's your passion?
