The Space

In the heart of Multnomah Village is this sanctuary in the city. The garden studio is ideal for 1-2 people visiting Portland. We'd like to think we offer something more than the traditional hotel room/kitchenette.

Your welcome will be the aromas of daphne and palette of color from this meticulously landscaped garden.

This 300 sq ft studio has a full kitchen, stocked mini-bar, super comfy queen bed, private bathroom with shower, high speed wi-fi internet, 32" LCD screen HD TV, and easy street parking. Great west hills views.

Portland Art Museum passes are free and available upon requests. We can also assist with securing tickets to local and current performances.

We are an easy walk to 90 acre park, bus service, restaurants, and village shops. Three grocery stores are within a mile from the studio.

Downtown Portland is a 5 miles away with easy freeway access north and south. Regional bus service is 1 1/2 blocks away. Tri-met bust tickets and maps are free for the asking.

The studio is quiet and private.

We have our own website SafeHouse Northwest.

Guests can enjoy covered patio and stroll through the garden.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

We love the sense of community the Multnomah Village. The neighbors are great. We also love the proximity to Gabriel Park and shops in the village.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Maria and Kenyon were great hosts! The appartment was clean and spacious. It has all you need in terms of cooking supplies (blender, pots, pans, etc). They even had a little 'mini-fridge' filled with drinks. Multnomah village is very nice, with lots of opportunities to eat. The bus downtown only takes 10 minutes and is a 2 minute walk from the appartment. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Fantastic stay at a beautiful place. The room was clean and well-appointed. Loved easy walking access to town. Very private and enjoyable. Our hosts made sure we had everything we needed. The directions before and during our stay left us with no unanswered questions. The property is amazing and we enjoyed our stay immensely.

  • This place was exactly as advertised. I was in late and out early for meetings and the hosts were totally accommodating. I would highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning!

  • We did not get a chance to meet Maria & Kenon during our stay as we arrived late and were quite busy visiting people.
    Their place is lovely and was a perfect one after travelling long hours from Quebec city. It is peaceful, quiet, and very clean.
    We appreciated all the little attentions such as the chocolates, the furnished basket for munchies, and drinks.
    The garden is amazing and we loved being in Multnomah village.

  • Cozy studio in a cozy village location.
    This stay provided us an opportunity to try out a very different part of Portland. This studio is well located to enjoy the "village" life that is close at hand.

  • This studio was one of the loveliest we have stayed in with airbnb. The inside was well-designed and executed, and the flower garden outside with private patio was cozy. The location is perfect with Gabrielle Park at the end of the block and within a block or so to Multnomah Village shopping and dining. So happy to find this place.

  • We only met the husband--seemed very nice and he graciously left us alone.
    The room was very clean, well stocked with the necessary accoutrements, private and quiet. It had a separate entrance from the main house and it was in a quiet neighborhood.

  • Maria and Kenyon were out of town during our stay, but left us an abundance of snacks, towels, and beverages. (Which worked out well since Portland had some water issues while we were in town.) The studio was beautiful and the garden lived up to all of the photos. Completely and beautifully zen. Would definitely pick this location when visiting PDX again.

  • My wife and I stayed at Maria and Kenyon's property "Safe House" for our honeymoon. It was simply incredible!

    We met Maria as soon as we pulled up and were left awe struck by the beauty of their garden. She gave us a quick tour and then took us inside. Maria and Kenyon have a very nice gift bag and sweet note for us on the table that helped us for welcomed.

    The Safe House was cozy yet open. We loved the bathroom and appreciated the kitchenette. We even made breakfast one morning, thanks to the kitchen supplies. We honestly felt at home.

    The location circa Multnomah Village is perfect. Literally a two minute walk to lots of shops and cafes. The distance from PDX airport is great- just enough to see the city while not becoming tired from the drive.

    We absolutely recommend Safe House to anyone interested. We hope to visit again sometime!

  • Our stay was my husband's first airbnb, have to say it was perfect for us. We came to Portland to visit many family members. The location was midway between them all, during our free time, which there was very little, we could walk around Multnomah Village & the nearby park.

    Maria & Kenyon's garden was lovely! They offer a clean & comfortable studio to stay in. Plenty of towels, great internet service, & much more.

    Maria is easy to communicate with through airbnb. I would definitely stay here again.

What's on your bucket list? Reaching the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and stepping foot in all 7 continents filled my bucket. As avid travelers, we have made the study of people, food, and cultures the thesis of our wanderlust. From cycling to surfing and from yoga to meditation, our interests are as diverse as there are cultures. We believe a successful lifestyle is about balancing work, play, and rest. This means work that is intellectually stimulating, creative, and meaningful and down time is more than sleep. We love meeting new people and introducing visitors to Portland and especially Multnomah Village. We'll be glad to share our favorite hike, restaurant, and shops with you. By working downtown Maria stays on top of the food cart and restaurant scene. To counter this appetite for good food she commutes by bike each day over Terwilliger Blvd. Portland is bike friendly (mostly). Kenyon is in charge of the garden and as a flower farmer he knows horticulture. His garden was featured recently by Janet Eastman of the Oregonian.
