About this listing
Welcome to my North Portland garden home. I am centrally located in one of Portland's oldest neighborhoods in North Portland - Overlook- NoPo.
You will be walking distance to both the North Mississippi and North Killingsworth business/arts districts and 5 minutes drive to the Alberta Arts neighborhood. Downtown PDX is just 10 minutes by car. You will have easy access to public transportation both Max train and bus and highways I-5 and 84.
Groceries -easy - A short Max/ train ride to New Seasons at Arbor Lodge or walk on over to Cherry Sprout on N. Albina street for local fresh produce and a great assortment of wines.
For dining and shopping, a short walk around the corner to Killingsworth and many options - The Hop and Vine mixes a good cocktail to enjoy while waiting for dinner to be served. Food carts are located at the end of the block where you can grab ice cream from Scoop - or Sushi at Mio's. After dinner stroll the Overlook bluff for sunset.
Or head over to either the Mississippi Arts or N. Williams district for amazing choices of great restaurants ( my favs Tasty & Sons, Lincoln and Interurban), cafes, shops and music venues.
My home is 2 bedrooms with 2 full baths - claw foot soaking tub in the upstairs master bath. Cozy living and dining room for gathering friends or napping after a meal in front of the fire. The house was re-built in 1998 and maintains all historic charm with unique reclaimed wood throughout.
You will be able to enjoy outdoor dining all year with tables in the front and back gardens for you to choose which mood is best (when raining stay on the covered lighted porch). And the fire pit for after dinner marshmallow roasting or star gazing.
Internet available and ample parking for cars or bikes.
Consider this your home away from home. Vinny and Sal (the cats) will welcome you with a purrrrrrrrr.
Please include information about yourself when you make an inquiry. Thanks for checking my site and feel free to email me any questions you have. I look forward to welcoming you soon.
When the house is not rented out, the owner and her son live here - with vinny and sal.

Great host, cool house to rent. Fun front deck to hang out on. Backyard nice as well with table and grill. Would certainly stay there again, cute neighborhood close to downtown. Cheers- Tim
We had the BEST experience in Danielle's charming garden home! Danielle made us feel so welcome - a house manual, Portland maps and magazines, 2 awesome cats, and a bottle of wine were there to greet us when we arrived. The neighborhood was perfect, in walking distance from cool bars and restaurants, and a short drive away from the city's most talked about attractions. Thank you, Danielle, for making our stay in Portland such a great one! :)
Danielle made us feel really welcome in leaving us a really nice welcome pack. The listing was perfect. Was such a nice space in a lovely neighbourhood. The house has so much character and felt like home. Would really recommend Danielle's listing to anyone visiting the area.
Danielle's house is perfect in so many ways - cozy, welcoming, well-appointed, in a great neighborhood, and as a total bonus, comes with two amazing cats! The grill came in handy over the memorial day weekend, for sure. We had a great stay and would recommend highly!!
Danielle and her place was great! She was easy to communicate with, her home was cute, comfortable, clean, and quiet - in a nice neighborhood with markets nearby, and her cats were just adorable.
My stay at the Mississippi Arts NoPo Garden Home could not have been better. There was ample space for all four of us in Danielle's beautiful and eclectic home. She kindly placed an additional mattress for us in a downstairs room that served as a third bedroom. Both bathrooms were lovely. One offers a good shower and the other offers a nice bath with a hand held shower fixture. The cats were extremely friendly and easy to care for, and Danielle is very clear about them up front. The house is in a sweet neighborhood within walking distance of stores, restaurants and public transportation. I would definitely stay here again!
I loved staying here! It was great to have the extra space while in town with my mother & daughter. The home has a goddesses touch, is well put together & comfortable.
About the Host, Danielle
I am a licensed Acupuncturist and active single Mom. My 14 year old son and i enjoy skiing in the Winter up on the amazing Mt Hood. We like to run ( a few 5k's ), bike through the neighborhoods and rails to trails. Hiking in the Gorge and surrounding areas take us to magical waterfalls in the Spring. Summer months we are busy building sandcastles and boogie boarding at the Oregon coast or Sauvies Island. A paddle or float on a nearby river is a great way to spend a summer day here in Portland. We love lazy rainy Sundays at home and walking to the carts for a late afternoon ice cream treat.
You will be able to do all this and more from our cozy home
