Super-clean, uncluttered, private apartment for rent.
There is one large bedroom with a comfy queen bed. A nice full kitchen with all amenities. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub and best bathtub/shower pressure ever! Stained concrete floors, double paned windows, good light, lots of closet space. Private garden courtyard!
Nice new everything. This is an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) attached to my house. It is a basement apartment but does not feel like a basement because it is partially above ground with lots of windows and light. This is not a permanent residence for anyone; therefore, you won't be crowded with anyone's personal stuff! The place is equipped with extra toiletries, towels, sheets, blankets etc. I try to keep a good stash of tea and coffee and there are multiple ways to make your morning cup -including drip coffee, french press, and espresso.
WiFi. Private fenced courtyard with garden and sitting area. Laundry access is available by special arrangement for longer term guests.
I am prompt with communication and available when needed, but mostly I try to keep a sense of privacy and give you space to enjoy your stay.
The neighborhood is awesome. I am only 2 blocks from Alberta street (Alberta Arts District) and not far from the Historic Mississippi neighborhood. Getting to a great coffee shop, bakery, bar, restaurant is a 5-20 minute walk. You can get downtown in 20-30 minutes on the bus or on bike. In the summer months on Sundays there is a fabulous farmers market across the street.
Very easy access to public transportation and bike routes. There is a bus stop just one block away and a bike rental shop two blocks away.
If you stay here in the summer you can snack on raspberries or blueberries in your own private garden, and you might get to taste my plum jelly that I made from the tree in the back yard.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Private entrance through private garden courtyard.
Interaction with Guests
I live upstairs in the main house. I will be available if needed. We may cross paths and share a friendly conversation, but mostly I like to give my guests full privacy and sometimes we don't see each other at all.
The neighborhood is great! My place is within walking distance to many great shops, pubs, and cafes on Alberta street. Mississippi district is also relatively close. There is a fabulous farmers market only 1 block away during the summer months.
It is very easy to get anywhere in the city by public transit or bike. There is a bus stop only 1 block away and great bike routes are very close by.
Plenty of free street parking.

Great apartment! Had everything we needed, super easy to check in and out, and great location. We rented bikes from the local bike shop that allowed us to easily explore Portland. The farmers market on Sunday morning was a great perk too!
Lisa welcomes her guests with an abundance of useful information on the neighborhood and places to go and more. The place itself was as gorgeous as described. The location and the neighborhood were awesome. I really enjoyed my stay.
Thank you Lisa!
Lisa was an excellent host! The apartment was clean and comfortable and very close to our kids' house. I loved the garden and all the beautiful flowers!
Lisa's place was perfect, spacious and everything we needed to enjoy Portland. Perfectly located to what became our favorite street, Alberta, that offered tons of great options for bars, restaurants, and shops just a couple blocks away. The house was super cute with a gorgeous garden, quiet, and right across the park was a wonderful farmers market Sunday morning. Overall amazing! Thanks Lisa!
This apartment was great! Very clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of parking around and never had any trouble finding a space. Great neighborhood, walking distance to the hip Alberta street. Never met the Lisa because she was out of town but she communicated really well to arrange how to get the keys. I would definitely recommend her place!
