Cute bedroom with desk and very comfortable full-size futon. Complete access to other parts of the house including the gourmet kitchen, comfortable living room, green back yard and (shared) bathroom.
Our beautiful home has wood floors, high ceilings and a fabulous front porch. With our yard and garden space, as well as the porch, there is always a spot to relax.
We are sometimes able to provide the entire house for our AirBnB guests. If you need two bedrooms, and have four people in your party, let us know.
Location and getting around:
We are located in the John's Landing neighborhood, which is quiet, but within walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants and bars. The Willamette River and Parks are just two blocks to the east. Guests can walk or ride to the OHSU Tram, Downtown, and even all the way to the Pearl along the pedestrian path next to the river. We even have a bicycle (complete with lights and helmet) that our guests are welcome to borrow.
There is a bus that stops right in front of our house which can take you to downtown or the OHSU Tram terminal in just a few minutes. We are also very close to Downtown and the Selwood neighborhood. Almost any other popular neighborhood in Portland can be reached via public transit or within a 30 minute bike ride.
Your bedroom is private, set apart from your host's bedroom and is furnished with a very comfortable futon, closet, shelves for your items and even desk that you can use. The bathroom is shared, and is always kept clean. The fully-equipped kitchen is available if you prefer to cook and stay in.
Get your day started on the right foot with our complementary local coffee or tea and an amazing blueberry-oat-scone (Angela's secret recipe). NEW! Our chickens are finally laying eggs, and we are pleased offer a hard or soft boiled egg to you in the morning as well.
Wireless internet is included, as well as on-street parking. The parking situation is usually very easy, but occasionally we and our guests are forced to park around the corner (still less than a 30-second walk).
Getting to us from the airport:
Our house can be reached by public transit from anywhere in the city. We can also either pick up/drop off at the airport for an additional $30. Another convenient option is to take any of the trains from the airport to downtown, where we can pick you up more easily: $5 additional.
Q: What size is the bed?
A: It is a 'full' or 'double': Not as spacious as a queen, but comfortable for two adults.
Q: What is there to do around the house?
A: Within several blocks, there is an italian restaurant, french restaurant, the Fulton Pub, the Willamette Park and River and 'Greenway Path', Portland Kayak Company (rentals). A great local coffee shop, a second-hand boutique and many more restaurants can be found within a 10 minute walk. We are directly across the river from the Sellwood neighborhood, which has wonderful restaurants and antique shops.
Q: Are you close to downtown?
A: We are a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute bike ride along the river.
Q: Are you close to the hospital (OHSU)?
A: We are less than five minutes away by car. The OHSU Tram Terminal is around 10 minutes away by bike. From the Tram Terminal, it is a 4 minute ride up to the hospital.
Q: We are arriving late. Is that a problem?
A: Probably not, but let us know and we'll be honest :-)
Q: Do I need to bring bottled water to Portland?
A: Portland has some of the best public water in the country, and we drink straight from the tap. However, it does contain a hint of chlorine.
Q: Should I bring towels?
A: No need, we supply fresh towels and washcloths.
Q: Are you close to PSU?
A: Yes, PSU is in the southern-most part of downtown. You can drive there in 5 minutes, or bike there in 15.
Q: Do you have pets?
A: Yes! We have a long-haired cat named Matty, and a new puppy (as of 5/11/2013) named Alpine. We also have four chickens, but they stay out of the house ;-) We do our best to keep the house free of hair/dander and keep pets out of the guest room unless guests want them in there, so those with light allergies have been fine in the house.
Our fist time visiting Portland could not have been any better, thanks to this fantastic couple and their amazing house. Dylan and Angela made us feel like we were old friends in for the weekend. The rooms was cozy and warm and each morning we could smell homemade scones baking in the kitchen just for us! The fist house member we met was Mattie (the cat/owner) and she showed us to our room chatting the whole way. We later met Alpine the "puppy" and he was so happy to meet us! We would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who would enjoy a peaceful, relaxing home to come back to after enjoying a day running around Portland. We recommended it all of our friends!
My boyfriend and I visited Portland for an interview I had at NCNM and really enjoyed our stay with Dylan and Angela.
They are super warm and friendly and eager to share their home and city with their guests.
The room was spacious and warm, and the house and bathroom were nice and clean.
Just a short bus ride to downtown and located in a quiet and safe neighborhood.
We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again. Thanks Dylan and Angela!
The coffee was definitely on purpose! Thank you for being such great hosts.
We loved every second of our trip to Portland and it was due in large part to Dylan and Angela, who made us feel welcome in their home (even when they weren't there) and who took the time to help us plan our weekend when they were busy packing for their own trip out of town.
This was my first experience with airbnb and thanks to Dylan and Angela it won't be my last.
Dylan and Angela were just wonderful to stay with! Cozy, casual, beautiful living area, wonderful scones, easy to chat with, and adorable, friendly pets. We'd love to stay with them again!
Great location, nice and quiet, wonderful coffee, friendly animals that kindly shared their humans with me! I will stay again soon.
Dylan and Angela were amazing hosts! The room was large, clean and very warm. I got in late at night and they had clean drinking water, wireless and a towel ready. In the morning Dylan invited me to go out with some of his friends in the afternoon and showed me some of the local yummies. His referrals were spot on, JoLa cafe was amazing! The JoLa breakfast sandwich and drip coffee was to die for. Overall I'd highly recommend this place, it was very comfortable and in a very convenient location.
Staying with Dylan and Angela was fantastic. Dylan was full of great suggestions on places to eat, grab coffee, and hangout. We even grabbed a few beers together one night. I felt very welcome and at home in their place. The place is close to OHSU which is exactly what I needed. I had an interview on the hill and was able to walk back to the apartment afterwards. It's also a few blocks from the river near a nice bike/walk path. Their cat and dog were both really great and friendly. Dylan even let me use their washer and dryer, which was really helpful. If I visit Portland again before I (hopefully) move there, I'd definitely stay with them again. Great experience.
The home is in a very nice neighbourhood only 10 minutes to downtown. Dylan and Anglea were away during our visit, and only met Dylan on our last morning, sharing a nice cup of coffee with him. Communication was great before our arrival, and they left lots of information about the house and recommendations for things to do in Portland The room is large, clean, quiet and comfortable and would definitely recommend staying here.
We had a great time with Dylan and Angela. They have a lovely home in a great part of town which is only 10 minutes from downtown. The animals were a lot of fun. Dylan and Angela were kind enough to invite us out to the pub and introduce us to some of their friends. We plan to stay in touch.
We would recommend this airbnb whole heartedly.
I had a great time staying with Angela and Dylan in Portland! Lucky enough, I stayed 3 days over the weekend with perfect weather and them spending lots of their free time with me. They had no problems at all with me being around their friends who were all super nice. We did lots of fun stuff and they gave me many ideas of what to do around Portland - without them I would not have seen so many beautiful spots in and around the area. The private room in their house is quiet (in a quiet neighborhood); shared bathroom and shared kitchen are no problem at all since Angela and Dylan are very repectful to their guests privacy. It's also fun if you like pets; they have a cat and a dog which both seem to have no problem at all with people they don't know...
Thanks so much for 3 great days in Portland. Hope to see you again sometime in the future!
