This is a great space for groups and families, with two adjacent bedrooms and access to all living spaces including kitchen and laundry. Spread out, take over, my home is yours!
Public transportation and freeway access are close by.
Both bedrooms have newer mattresses and bedding, and thick fluffy towels. I also have an additional child-sized mattress, and a queen-sized airbed if you have more people than the beds will fit.
Cook, hang out on the deck or in the living room, wake up and take an outdoor soak every morning. Enjoy morning coffee and tea at home, or walk to something close-by in the neighborhood.
One driveway space and plenty of free street parking
Outdoor Hot tub
Fenced back yard
Interaction with Guests
I work weekdays, and I'm often away part of the evening/weekend so you may have the place to yourself much of the time. I always enjoy getting to know guests - and I also value your privacy.
My neighborhood is quiet and safe. It's very enjoyable to stroll around: a short walk takes you to great restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, bars, and our seasonal Sunday farmer’s market. Grocery stores are nearby including a large full-service Asian market with deli; Fred Meyer, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s are a short drive away. Mount Tabor Park is great for running and hiking, and has fantastic views of the city. Montavilla Park has a playground, huge play fields, and a pool in the summer.
15 minute drive to the airport or downtown, or about 35 minutes on our excellent public transportation system. Buses run from a few blocks away every 10-30 minutes, and it's a short connection to light rail (MAX).

If this is your first reservation on Airbnb:
• Please tell me a little bit about yourself when you make a reservation or inquiry - where you're coming from, if your group is family/friends, etc. If you have a blank or meager profile I may ask probing questions.
• I don't have access to your contact info, and I am blocked from passing you mine until you make your reservation. If you try to give me your phone number or e-mail before then Airbnb will blank it out from your message.
• Let me know if you have questions about anything at all - my neighborhood, home or Airbnb in general.
Quiet time 10 p.m. - 7 a.m. weeknights. Please whisper if you use the hot tub during this time, or enjoy the silence. Feel free to quietly leave/come home early or late, it's quite rare that it wakes me up.
No smoking in the house or deck.
Fragrance free: please no perfume/cologne, they linger in my small house long after you're gone!
Check in/out times are negotiable, depending on reservations adjacent to your stay.
Mailing back personal items: $20 + postage.
We never ended up meeting David since we arrived late and left early, but we were extremely comfortable in his home and it was clear that he is very comfortable and experienced with making others welcome in his home. Communication was excellent, entering and exiting was a breeze, and his place was immaculate.
We lived in David's house during this Christmas. The house is clean and comfortable. It's a very quiet nice community. I really like the hot tub of this house, it makes me feel relax after one day exploring in the city. David is very nice and patient to answer our questions about how to explore the city.
We had a wonderful stay at David's place. David was friendly and the rooms were clean and comfy. I highly recommend!
Our stay at David's was great! Everything was easy to find. We were a total of 4 guests and the house was spacious for all of us to be comfortable, make dinner and relax. The hot tub was a real treat too in the recent cold snap!
Located near enough to downtown Portland, there are two major bus routes that take you to the city center, that are simple to use $2.50 (2 hours) $5 for a day pass. David's place is great stay, a work in progress (unfinished floors), the two rooms are quiet and very comfortable. David is welcoming and a wealth of foody information, we asked him about places to eat in and around the downtown area, and he provided many suggestions. One thing about Portland that I don't understand: waiting in line for donuts (Blue Star or Voodoo). But damn, their beer is worth any wait. David has provided all the amenities I wanted plus more, wish I got a chance to use the hot tub.
Two bedrooms and a hot tub it was! David was quick to respond which I liked. This place was a great deal for my stay in Portland. David is super kind and generous. I felt safe and comfortable during my weekend stay.
I have stayed with about 10 different hosts over the last few years and Dave's place is always my favorite....and where I stay when its available. Everything I need....great bed, laid back atmosphere and a host that really gets how to host.....the little things, like space for your food, some coffee, and newly painted now! Plus, he actually seems to enjoy hosting, which is something i can't always say.
I love to travel and I love meeting and hosting travelers. I've been an Airbnb host since mid-2010, when I started there were two dozen listings for the entire city of Portland!
My neighborhood is a very pleasant place to stay, whether it's getting coffee, sushi, trying the new Lebanese brunch at Ya Hala, or a drink nearby or walking/running around Mt. Tabor park.
A few of my favorite things are bike commuting year-round, hiking, yoga, cooking, and eating my way around Portland. Whenever possible I'm out the door to visit a farmer's market, mountain, the Columbia River Gorge, or the coast. I love to travel as well, in the last few years I've been spending time in Maui, Cozumel, Tulum, and Thailand. I also visit my family in Seattle, NYC, Maine, and San Diego as much as possible!
