Visit the great northwest! Portland offers it all. We are close to the Mt. Hood, (website hidden). Helens (volcanoes, anyone??), the lovely Oregon coast, and the Columbia River Gorge. Portland, the CITY, is a progressive, green community in the heart of the northwest. From our interesting neighborhoods to the Japanese and Chinese gardens, bike and hiking trails, museums, cultural and musical events, wine tasting...... you are certain to find many avenues to explore and then treasure the memories.
My house was built in 1926 across from beautiful Laurelhurst Park and is walkable to the city center or about about 5 minutes by bus two blocks away. Portland public transportation is efficient and accessible by bus, train and streetcar. Powell's Bookstore is a must-see and world famous and you might want to make a stop at VooDoo donuts for a taste treat. I am a vocal (!!) fan of the McMenniman brothers and their efforts to restore some of Oregon's most interesting properties! I would be glad to tell you about them.
My room is upstairs with 2 single beds. The two bathrooms are shared. I have steps and a cat and a dog so am probably not prime for people with animal allergies or accessibility issues. Wifi is available. A light breakfast is negotiable; I don't "do" coffee...........
No pets but you'll be required to pet mine!
The hospitality and accommodations were fantastic. We had the ability to come as go as we pleased. The amenities were good as well. What a beautiful area of the city and home. We spent most of our time just walking around Sharon's neighborhood.
Sharon has the most beautiful house, from the garden to all the lovely decor inside. The room was comfortable and full of books and information on everything to do in and out of Portland. She even had a book on the Columbia River Gorge waiting for me on my bed since she knew I was visiting Multnomah Falls! She was a pleasure to chat with and had lots of extra tips on Portland's many great places to see. The location was perfect for what I wanted to do, close to everything. The icing on the cake was her animals, particularly her sweet dog Lily.
Great stay, highly recommended!
Sharon's home is a hidden gem. The home is located in a very convenient and quiet neighborhood, close to the wonderful Laurelhurst Market, a large park to take a run or walk her beloved dog, and a tranquil view of her property with its many trees.
On the few occasions that I did see Sharon, she was absolutely warm and engaging and made me feel like a member of her family. I enjoyed being able to drink tea and talk with her and share stories of our similar travels. Her neighbors were fun to meet and everyone was so nice!
I look forward to returning to visit and staying with Sharon again.
I was surprised by how many good reviews there were for Sharon. That's why I chose this house. Now after staying here for 4 nights. I know. The house is great! She was so helpful and met our needs for shampoo, towels, and toothpaste. This is great! I recommend anyone to stay with Sharon to have a great experience!
Sharon was great, answered all our questions. Great location and it was even better than our expectations
We had an absolutely perfect stay at Sharon's home. This was my first time to use AirBnB, and I couldn't have had a better experience. Sharon was a kind, warm host, and she made us feel right at home. Her home is in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood immediately adjacent to Laurelhurst Park, and it's just a short walk from Burnside. You'll find a Whole Foods, tons of great coffee shops, and plenty of cool shopping within walking distance. The house is just around the corner from the 20 bus line, which makes getting around a snap. I highly recommend staying here, and I hope to book this spot next time I'm in Portland. Cheers, Sharon!
This was our first airbnb experience, and Sharon was a great host! We were in and out of the house for a wedding, but Sharon was very accommodating. Her house is beautiful with lots of interesting things to look at. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable - we slept great! Sharon also has a dog and a cat that were both incredibly friendly. Amazing experience; highly recommend this place and would return in a heartbeat.
