The Space

Greetings,

I have a comfortable and spacious three bedroom house with elegant hardwoods throughout available for short stay rentals. The house is a classic 1920's bungalow with plenty of built-in storage, your own designated and reliable wifi network, a wood-burning fireplace, secluded back yard with a multi-variety bamboo hedge for privacy, laundry, dishwasher, a well equipped, foodie-friendly kitchen, updated bathroom, a long driveway for off-street parking, and a covered back patio dining space set-up with a large BBQ.

The upstairs is quiet and nicely insulated from downstairs sounds. There are two upstairs bedrooms plus two exterior closets. The west guest room is newly furnished with a firm queen-sized bed and nightstands on each side. The east guest room is furnished with a desk and chair, floor lamp, oodles of empty built-in shelving and drawers for storage as well as a futon couch which folds out into a full / double-sized bed and is topped with a new memory foam pad for added comfort. The master bedroom is on the main floor, has built-in closets, and is conveniently situated right next to the bathroom.

Included on each morning of your stay is a self-serve breakfast. Before you arrive I'll typically stock the kitchen with fresh organic apples and bananas, an assortment of cold cereals (also mostly organic or natural brands), oatmeal, coffee and a variety of teas (green, black, & herbal). Sometimes there will also be juice or eggs and toast makings.

The house has a great location on North Ainsworth street between I-5 and Interstate avenue in North Portland. Outside of rush hour it takes only about 6 minutes to drive downtown. There is a New Seasons market and a stop for the yellow line Max train just 3 blocks away. New Seasons is like a smaller and more localized Whole Foods with better prices. The max train will whisk you downtown in about 13 minutes or north to the Portland Exposition Center in less time. A few blocks east is the gorgeous and historic Peninsula Park. Also nearby are bustling Mississippi and Alberta streets, the new Killingsworth food cart pod, and P.C.C.'s Cascade campus. Within a mile or two are also the University of Portland, Adidas North America headquarters, and Legacy Emmanuel Hospital.

You can take the Max train from my house to the airport for about $2.50 and without having to go downtown.

The house is able to sleep quite a few people but since there is just one bathroom i don't recommend parties larger than 5 or 6.

Guests traveling on business or in Portland for a wedding or other formal events will be glad to know that you'll have access to an iron, ironing board, two hair dryers, and two full length mirrors.

I have lived in this house for over ten years and feel i know the neighborhood and Portland in general quite well. Please let me know if I can answer any questions for you to help make your visit a grand one. Thanks for looking.

  • The house was lovely but very far a way from city center.

  • A true Portland experience, great location close to Mississippi Ave (cafés, bars, quirky shops). The house has everything you need, Abraham has thought of everything. Spotlessly clean & some lovely extras like the fruit & bike. Thanks again.

  • Abraham was a great host! My family of four had a very pleasant experience staying in his Bungalow. We really appreciated his fully stocked kitchen and his recommendations for restaurants/attractions. There are more than a few quirks to his home that need to be explained upon arrival, but they didn't impact our stay.

  • Abraham was a wonderful and thorough host who met us to give us a walk through of the house when we arrived. The house was clean and spacious, had everything that we needed. The neighborhood was great, walking distance to Mississippi.

  • Fantastic trip to Portland, thanks in a large part to this fantastic listing! Slept plenty, great location, close to transit, pretty house. Only downside is that the living room is not laid out for socializing very much.

  • Great home in a perfect location to get around Portland when we were in town for a race event. Abraham was a wonderful host, taking the time to meet us for a tour of the home and providing us with some very nice breakfast foods to make our stay a little easier. Would absolutely recommend this location to others.

    Response from Abraham:

    Thanks for the feedback on the lighting Jun. I am currently hunting for the right floor lamp to go in the living room behind the couch so one can more easily do reading there.

  • The house is the perfect size for 5 people. We really enjoyed the location and the house was very big and clean with an awesome porch. Abraham was really easy to get ahold of and very friendly when we arrived. The location was good -- easy walk to Alberta and Mississippi. I would highly reccomend staying here!

  • Great place to stay in Portland! Very close to a New Season's market and within walking distance/Max distance to everything else.
