  • My team and I booked Elliott's house to use for a catalog shoot, so we were only here for the day. But boy, it sure was nice. Elliott arranged leaving the key with us and we arrived to everything as he promised, clean and organized.

    This house is so much fun and serene to be in! We all wanted to spend the day lounging and reading from his extensive book collection in the converted attic space while lazily glancing out the window at the beautiful foliage. The built-ins throughout the house were gorgeous, I would definitely want to stay in this space if I was visiting from out of town.

    Elliott was prompt with all correspondence and very patient in working with me to arrange a "stay" for just the day.

  • Elliott's house was exactly as described, and we had a wonderful time. The library on the third floor is amazing, and the entire house was very comfortable. Elliott was very responsive and a great communicator. The house was immaculate when we arrived, and has everything you might need. Elliott even left us coffee for the French press! The soaking tub appears to be out of commission at the moment, but honestly we never had time to even think about using it with all the things to do in SE Portland. The neighborhood is perfectly located near great restaurants and food trucks, yet tucked away in a quiet setting.

    I've been raving about this listing to friends and family planning visits to Portland. Elliott's home is a beautiful, quintessential Portland house, for a fraction of what you'd pay for a hotel; this is exactly why AirBnB exists!!

  • What a lovely old Portland-style house. Large and comfortably furnished, modern amenities without losing it's historic charm. It is just blocks from restaurants/shops/bars, as well as one of Portland's quirky little movie theaters.

    Elliott was always prompt and friendly in replying to my questions, both before and during our stay. We had a wonderful time.

  • This home in SE Portland was wonderful! On a quiet street and close to many restaurants. Elliott was fantastic with all the information we needed for a comfortable stay. I would not hesitate using his home for another visit.

  • Elliott's home is warm and comfortable. It is in a quiet location, yet just a skip away from great coffee shops, restaurants and the supermarket. With a 10 minute walk, you can be in the heart of the Hawthorne area, and with a 10 minute drive you can be parked downtown and enjoying food carts and nightlife.

    Elliott was very easy to work with, and provided us with a lot of useful information about the house, the area, and some good eats & treats that were not to miss. If you have a chance to stay here, don't miss it! We shared the house with another married couple, and all of us hope we'll get a chance to stay here again. Thanks for everything Elliott – you really helped make our visit to Portland great.

  • Elliott was great and the house worked out really well for our work trip to Portland. Location is close to everything in SE and the house itself is spacious and comfortable! Hope to stay again soon!

  • What a wonderful stay. It was huge, stocked and comfortable. The location was close to restaurants and the OMSI. Our two families with young kids had a wonderful reunion. Will definitely stay here again. Thank you for making our trip memorable.

  • Elliott's home was awesome! Super pleasant and spacious, we immediately felt at home. The location was excellent - only a few blocks from your favorite foodie hangouts and easy public transportation stops - we were carless and felt rather mobile! The neighbors were extremely sweet and we totally felt like locals. Overall, great experience in Elliott's home and being an unofficial "Portlander"!

Hi, I am Elliott. I am a Latin American history professor at Lewis & Clark College in Portland. My research is on late nineteenth century borderlands history, and more recently about Chinese migration in the Americas. My partner, Reiko, is also a history professor at Lewis & Clark. She studies the built environment and the US South in the 19th century. We both love to bike in the city, and eat great food in the neighborhood. We have a 13-year old daughter who likes making movies and playing volleyball.
