The Space

House with large sunroom and backyard garden. Airy bedroom with double futon, and partially shared bathroom next door.
Built in the 1920's, it houses the owner who is retired, but active in music, gardening, and various craft activities, and who likes to meet people from different places. Also, there are cats, and often other renters. My bedroom is upstairs. When there is a full-time renter here they are either in another bedroom upstairs or in the basement, in which case they will be sharing the bathroom outside of your room.
This location is in a quiet neighborhood close to a large park, but only 5 min walk to local coffee shops, restaurants, and funky stores, in what is called Multnomah Village. Easy bus access to downtown Portland, about 15 or 20min. Only a 10 min drive with car. On street parking. WiFi access in home, some kitchen privileges, breakfast served upon request.
Arriving at the airport it is easy to take "the Max" rapid transit train to downtown and transfer to bus 44 or 45 and get off within 2 or 3 blocks of the house. The frequency of buses varies depending on time of day.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Susan (email hidden) and a fun lady to be around. She was very helpful to me during my month-long stay in Portland, and the atmosphere at her house is comfortable and relaxed. My room was great too-- big enough for all my boxes to be stored away, with a nice bed and a unique collection of books that could have keep me occupied for weeks. :) I enjoyed my stay here!

  • Susan was super nice! Her comfortable house made me want to stay longer.
    Village was also so cute. My favorite was Grand central cafe:)

  • Sue was an excellent host and it was a pleasure to get to know her over the 3 months that I stayed at her home. She was very laid back, accommodating, happy to answer any questions. She is easy to get along with and has a variety of interests that made it all the more intriguing to share her home with. For instance, once a week I enjoyed a choir and/or orchestra practice that she held at her home. The neighborhood was quiet making it easy to get to sleep at night. The location was great as it was by the quaint Multnomah village, and only a 15-20 minute bus ride from downtown with a bus stop really close by her home. There also was always plenty of on street parking near her home. If your interested in her posting, don't hesitant to book it. If I need a place to stay in Portland in the future, I know exactly where I will lodge.

Originally from So. Calif. I have been in Portland for about 35 years. I am retired and don't know how I managed to find time to work! I like re-modeling (less as my body gets older!) and gardening. I spend a lot of time involved with musical activities playing cello - orchestras and chamber music, and both singing and choral directing. I also very much like meeting new people and people from different places, and love to travel myself. I am, also very lucky to have both of my children living in Portland.
