About This Listing
Welcome to Portland and our wonderful home.
We are Emily, an art director/designer/artist/musician; Adam, a musician/screenprinter; Cowbear the cat, and Donut the little dog.
Our home has wonderful amenities:
Huge remodeled kitchen with concrete counter tops, 5 burner gas stove. yes, we love to cook! And have many wonderful Le Creuset cookware, nice Shun knives, dishwasher, and raw walnut counter top.
Our wonderfully big open living room is decked out with kilim rugs,1970's leather chair, and driftwood chandelier, and many plants, Emily's art as well as art from local artists, and artifacts from our travels.
The lush backyard has a fire pit, fruit trees, organic vegetable garden and nice spots to lay about in the sun on one of our many woven blankets. Though for the season it's a bit overgrown.
We have 2 rooms for rent, and your room has one south facing window, a SUPER comfy QUEEN sized bed on a handmade bed frame, dresser and closet. All brand new bedsheets, and duvet covers.
You will share a bathroom that has a rain shower, lots of plants, and toilet and sink with our other guests if they are there, and we also use that shower sometimes, but we have our own bathroom.
There is also a toilet just off the kitchen.
We use all natural soaps and cleaning products, and are sensitive to strong perfumes and colognes. Please be respectful of using them in the house. We are totally into essential oils and nice smelling things, but everyones nose is different!
We are still working on our home and there are a few unfinished things, but they are all cosmetic, and nothing that takes away from the comforts and overall style of the place.
Collectively we have lived in Portland for over 25 years, and will happily share our favorite breakfast spots, bars, venues, and more with you! Maybe there is a cool BBQ, concert, or art opening while you are in town, we will let you know!
Our home is close to Alberta Street, Mississippi ave, the Sunday farmers market is 2 blocks away! There are multiple transit options within 2 blocks as well.
We are near great bars, fantastic dining, and a few great parks as well.
Pets allowed on a case by case basis.
We really look forward to having you in our home.
Emily, Adam, Cowbear, and Donut.
You are welcome to use our kitchen, hang out in the backyard, and make yourselves at home on the front porch.
We work for ourselves and sometimes we are on crazy deadlines, and other times we have lots of time to hang out! Sometimes we head out of town to go camping and guests love to feed our cat! Other times we are home cooking up delicious things to share.
2 blocks from our house is the number 6 bus which takes you towards downtown, and all the way to the downtown farmers market.
4 blocks away is Everybody's Bicycles where you can rent bikes. Everyone has been happy with the service there.
You are welcome to use our kitchen, hang out in the livingroom, backyard, and front porch. We want you to feel at home!
Interaction with Guests
We work for ourselves so sometimes we are super busy, and other times we are home making meals and cocktails...
We love it when our guests are up to their own thing out exploring the city, and occasionally around to share an evening beer.
We hope you treat our home with the care that you would treat your own place. We have rebuilt this place from the old bones of it's 1906 frame, and put lots of love into it.
If you cook, we hope you will clean up after yourself. We ask that no wooden utensils or nice knives go in the dishwasher. You are welcome to use our oils and spices, but if you use up anything or use a lot we hope you will please replace it.
Also if you wear strong scents, cologne, or perfume, we ask that you please refrain from wearing it in the house. We use all natural unscented detergents.
Otherwise, we want you to feel comfortable and at home in our home.
The front gate must always be closed right behind you when you are coming in and out, as the dog has his tricky ways of escaping!
Adam, Donut and Cowbear made us feel very welcome during our 3-day stay. Emily was out of town at the time, but before our stay she was very communicative, answering any questions we had in a timely manner. Their house is a bohemian dream for plant lovers.
This home is a perfect example of what makes Airbnb so special, and why hotel chains will never be on this level. I felt so welcomed, and looked after. Portland has a unique vibe that no other city has, and this home fits right with that theme. If you really want to experience living like a local, this home will surely give you all the PNW vibes you can handle!
Adam and Amy are very friendly host.
Their house is amazing! There are many beautiful spots around their neighbor.
So I had awesome experiences in there.
Beautiful home. Emily and Adam have impeccable taste and a wonderful sense of style, and their home is very comfortable. Emily was also very responsive when I had a couple of questions. Definitely hope to stay there again on one of my next trips to Portland.
I love their room, smart cat, dog, and beautiful neighbourhood.
Emily and Adam is always friendly and kind. Thank you for giving me wonderful pear liqueur! I hope I go back your house!

About the Host, Emily And Adam
We are a fashion designer/musician/artist/creative director/foodie and a screenprinter/musician/sports fan/best friend/designer super thrilled to travel and host wonderful guests in our favorite place.
We are avid thrift-shoppers and have amazing luck when it comes to discovering treasures and parking spaces. With this special knack, we create beauty in our space, and consider the atmosphere to be a very important part of the day.
Recently our home was featured in the beautiful Japanese lifestyle magazine Ku:nel, and also on Portlandia. In the spring we will also be featured in a beautiful new book about Bohemian homes. We are excited that our love of interior spaces has allowed us to create intentional and plant filled space to host you.
Emily loves to cook, read, make art, eat at the best restaurants, get out into nature, and spend time with friends playing music, feasting, and enjoying the good life that the Northwest has to offer. She is pretty into Instagram and would love if you tag the photos of our house with @Emily_Katz and @Goldenruledesign, so we can see what you post!
Adam owns his own screenprinting business, he loves the outdoors, can school you on basketball trivia, and loves to eat as much as Emily loves to cook.
We look forward to hosting you and sharing our favorite places with you!
