The Space

Super-clean, uncluttered, private apartment for rent.

One large bedroom with comfy queen bed, full kitchen, claw-foot tub and best bathtub/shower pressure ever! Stained concrete floors, double paned windows, good light. Private garden courtyard!

Nice new everything. This is an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) attached to my house and 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.

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.

If you stay here you can snack on some 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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Lisa's apartment is super close to some really good restaurants in NE Portland. My family (wife and 2-year-old) and I were able to walk to dinner and around the neighborhood, and the drive to see the rest of Portland was only a few minutes.

    Lisa took the time to supply a folder of nice neighborhood restaurants, shops, etc that we referenced. There's also a Saturday farmer's market across the street that we took advantage of.

    The apartment was super well equipped with an espresso machine, microwave, full fridge, and more.

  • No interaction with the host except through e-mail, but enjoyed the place we stayed and the neighborhood. Both were very cute and cozy. Easy access to entertainment and easy parking.

  • The apartment was perfect for our stay. Clean, cosy, fully equipped. We did not meet Lisa but she gave clear instructions for the check-in, internet and everything else.

  • I chose this apartment based on location since it was close to my cousin's house that I was visiting. I loved it! Beautiful area, walking distance to so many cool shops and restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable, not cluttered and provided room to put your things while you stayed to make it feel like your own. Lisa was helpful with check-in and check-out via text and email, and made it clear that she was there if we needed her or anything (though we didn't!) She left us a loaf of fresh-baked bread and we enjoyed toast and coffee every morning. We didn't really cook in the kitchen since we always take advantage of eating at all of the great restaurants in Portland, but it looked like the stocked kitchen would have anything you might need. I'd stay here again!

  • Apt was just as pictured, very clean and well stocked. Felt like we were staying at a little hotel. It was quiet and comfy. Lisa was great, very responsive to our questions and super helpful with our dog. Location was great, as it's right next to a park and walking distance to many great restaurants. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it!

  • This is a great little apartment. Very comfortable, with everything you need, including about 4 different ways to make your morning coffee. It's a basement apartment, but feels light, cozy and warm. Lisa made everything easy, and we felt very welcome. For the most part, it was pretty quiet. One of the nights there was someone - probably a neighbor - playing music with a heavy base until 3am. With ear plugs it wasn't too bad, but did wake us up. Still, I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    Response from Lisa:

    Sorry about those neighbors! I couldn't sleep either. That rarely happens and I have spoken with them about a noise curfew.

  • We had a perfect visit, the house was so clean and nice. The neighborhood is close to everything on Alberta St.

    Thanks for checking in on us and making sure we had everything we needed, and for leaving us coffee! We would definitely stay again and recommend your place to others!

  • My boyfriend and I LOVED our stay here! The apartment had everything we needed. Logistics with the host were very easy. The apartment was clean, spacious and well stocked. The first thing my boyfriend said was, "This is perfect. I could live here."
