About this listing
My cozy 1920's Bungalow home is located in the lovely Concordia Neighborhood. It's 10 minutes to the airport and downtown. It is a few blocks to the vibrant Alberta Arts District known for its Last Thursday art walk. Aside from the art galleries, Alberta offers a variety of boutiques, shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Various types of restaurants include: Italian, Mexican, Thai, a French patisserie and even Creole/Southern food. Food carts a plenty! We are walking distance to "the friendliest " natural food market (New Seasons), a drug store, a movie theater at the esteemed McMenamins Kennedy School, a yoga studio, a video store and a huge park with an off leash area for dogs. We are just blocks from several bus and bike routes. There is plenty of parking available on the street or driveway in this quiet neighborhood.
The stairs to the top floor bedroom opens into an entryway room where there is an additional closet and a long chest of drawers before getting to the bedroom. There are double windows at both ends of the rooms that let in a lot of light. The rooms are private, but the shared living space includes: bathroom, living and dining room, kitchen, front porch and backyard, too. Relax on the sofas in the living room, watch a movie and warm up next to the wood stove or view cable and Wi-Fi upstairs.
I share the house with my wiener dog, Lucy. She loves having guests and will greet you at the door. Native of Portland, I’d be happy to suggest places to go in this up-and-coming city.
SInce it is a shared space my only concern during the work week is that it starts quieting down between 10-11pm (unless it's summer break!) in the main living areas.
About the Host, Jeanne
I am an ESL teacher that likes to travel several times a year to foreign countries---especially the ones that my students are from. My motto is, "Eat my way through Asia, dance my way through South America. I have been very fortunate to be able to my own home to be able to trek around the globe, but now after numerous tenants and housemates, I am ready to start hosting other travelers from around the world. I enjoy playing soccer, cycling, dancing and cooking. I adore Lucy, my mini dachshund, and enjoy doing as much as I can with her. I am slowly turning my garage into a craftsman studio with the help of my longtime friend and contract manager, Rob. He will be available by phone for any maintenance issues while I'm at work or to answer any questions if I'm on vacation. He''ll also be feeding Lucy, watering plants, and yard while I am away...
