You're looking at the coziest houseboat in Portland! This floating tiny home is a little slice of paradise, with everything you need to have a memorable, unique and comfortable stay in Portland. She's proudly docked at the Tomahawk Island Marina on Hayden Island - so you'll have access to all of Portland's finest offerings while having a sweet little hideout to come home to at night. The marina is clean, safe and quiet with only a handful of other liveaboards as your neighbors. Enjoy!

The space
The space is a simple studio that is perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. It has an upgraded kitchenette with a brand new fridge, toaster oven, hot plate, microwave and all utensils. The has a real shower and toilet - must be noted that you are staying on a boat and the shower only stays hot for 5-10 minutes. If a long hot shower is a priority this might not be the place for you. Bed is queen sized and very comfortable. There is a new AC mini-split that cools and heats. It is hooked up with high-speed wifi and cable TV. The outdoor deck space is just fabulous with beautiful views of the Columbia River! Perfect for sitting out and drinking your coffee in the morning or watching the sunset with a glass of wine. We have 2 kayaks that you'll be able to take out from March - October. Common spaces include a gated parking lot, onsite washer and dryer and a community garden!

Where you’ll be

Portland, Oregon, United States

This is definitely one of the most unique airbnb experiences in Portland. You're getting a taste of boat life with all the comforts of home! Hayden Island is a very special place and perfectly positioned in between North Portland and Vancouver, WA. Nature and boating are the dominant activities in the area and we recommend going to North Portland for restaurants and culture. Our favorite places are Swift and Union for the best burger in Portland and Arbor Lodge for coffee.
