The Space

*Private, sunny SE corner Queen bedroom in a lovely, soulful,
owner-occupied Craftsman home.
A happy and peaceful feeling place.

If you crave your own mini apartment, I have another listing in the same house, built into the remodeled finished street-level of the place. "Sweet Earthen Suite"- - super affordable for the size...
as well as another private room on the uppermost floor (NW corner) .

Great NE location* near public transit, airport (5min+/-) and major arterials with easy access to many flavorful neighborhoods---great food, music and Portland culture abounds.
As a long time member of international travel organizations, Couchsurfing and Hospitalityclub (search for "Soulvolt" there for more references), your fearless hostess is well-prepared to ensure your stay is enjoyable and will happily play guide/consultant/adviser, schedules permitting, if you wish some local opinion and spice.

ALL walks of folk are welcome to make temporary home here.
Cultural celebration assured.
Come play house in Portland, see if you Love it like we do!?

About the digs:
There's a bathroom minimally shared with me (the tidy owner) on the main floor directly next door to this room which you can have it to yourself for a small additional daily fee if you wish.
*There is also an upstairs bathroom with shower and heated floor tiles, shared (again- usually minimally) when the other upper room has a guest booked.
*Plus a pan-stocked shared kitchen, (your food purchases are up to you markets walkable to the east and west!), French Press coffee pot and a Cafe 1 block away!)

*We may have a spare cruiser bike or two to loan you if you desire.
(Just lock 'em up right 'n tight to avoid the unmentionable!)

Twin cot available if needed.

~The Neighborhood elaboration:
The Rose City Park neighborhood is a sweet one, adjacent or near to the Beaumont-Wilshire/Fremont Street, Alameda, Hollywood, Alberta Arts and Cully areas.
A clear day stroll a few blocks southeast of this porch brings you to the ridge of city owned Rose City Golf Course and a beautiful view of Mount Hood!

Very comfortable, safe, tasty (walking distance food, pubs, jazz, all convenient! Great neighbors, vibe) neighborhood close enough to all "quadrants" of our fair Rose City to be a handy central point for sampling the nuances of all Portland's flavorful pockets.

Easy Public transportation (tri-met bus) access just a half block away. Hollywood Max station a ten-minute stroll (unless you stop to sample beer from the brew pub en route i.e. Laurelwood Public House, Moon and Sixpence Pub, Gustav's or any of the dozens of restaurants, shops and markets along the way... NE Sandy Blvd, NE Fremont Avenue and NE Alberta Street are replete!).


If you find hotels too sterile, pricy and disconnected from the pulse of the city, then I reckon that's why you're on AirBnB!?
Hostels, though charming and affordable, can be a bit boisterous for mellower grown up sorts. This joint gives you a snapshot of regular ol' life in a stunning nearly hundred year old soulful Portland craftsman, close to more than you'll have time to do if you stay less than a month or two

Come make temporary roost here in mi casa/tu casa.

Portland beckons thee!
