I live in NE Portland by the Rose Quarter. There are bars, bicycles, parks, public transportation options, movie theaters, restaurants, and shopping spots near me. My favorite restaurant in Portland is 8 blocks away!
I live with my cat who I brought back from Alaska. She is all white and her name is Mimi. Because of her being a cat with white hair, there are sometimes Mimi hairs floating around/ stuck on furniture (though I will try and clean it up as best I can and of course sweep). She is not a lap cat, and only likes to be pet minimally. She has been known to bite and scratch, but she is usually good about giving a warning.
I am willing to host someone for a couple of days, typically only on the weekends. If I am out of town, you would have my entire apartment to use, as long as you don't mind taking care of Mimi too. She is easy to care for- food, full water dish, litter box. It may sound obvious, but this basic care has proven to be somewhat difficult for some people. If I am in town, you would be sleeping in my living room.
I have foam pads when laid down on the ground become either a twin or queen sized sleeping surface/ pad/ mattress (it is not a futon, but still pretty comfy). I also have a couch as a sleeping option.
I expect guests to take care of their trash and recycling, if it is more than my bags can contain. I also expect you to take whatever food you bring into the house, as I am vegan and most likely won't eat whatever is left (plus I am super picky). Smoking is not allowed inside or near the property outside. My neighbors go across the street to smoke, and I would ask that my guests do the same.
It's no 4 star set up but it is certainly comfy enough. And if you still need convincing, my walkability score on (website hidden) is a 94! Can't beat that!
Deanna was very nice, the place is quiant but clean. Close to everything either by walking or bus. The cat was cute and despite being allergic I didn't have any problems with it.
My stay was very enjoyable. Deanna was a very gracious host, who took care of any need that arose. She was also able to give me information about some of the tourist sites I was curious about. It is very near the convention center, and is walkable. It is also near their public transit which will get you everywhere, like voodoo doughnuts.
Had a very nice stay at Deanna's place. Very well located and cheap.
I stayed Deanna's room for just one night. The house is close to the downtown and there are many shops around the house. Deanna is nice person and friendly! However, if you don't like cats, you may be uncomfortable...
Deanna's place was a nice cozy place for me to get snowed in for the weekend! A very rare Portland occurrence... but I was still able to walk everywhere from the house, so it's conveniently located, too. Thanks Deanna!
I was in Seattle traveling for work and decided to head down to Portland over the weekend. I was looking for a place to stay for the night and Deanna's seemed ideal in terms of location and price.
I couldn't have asked for a better host. Deanna is amazingly friendly and easy to talk to. She made me feel completely welcome to her place the moment I showed up.
She ended up bringing me out and showing me the area. We hit up some local food trucks for dinner and then headed to a few bars/clubs to meet up with her friends. And to complete the night she took me out to Voodoo Doughnut which I now consider a must visit if you're ever in Portland. Probably made more out of the night then if I headed out alone.
I had a comfy mattress with a pillow and sleeping bag which was perfect for my one-night stay. Headed out early the next morning to start my drive to the coast and it was nice that her place was right near the highways which made getting around real easy.
All in all -- A+. Simply put, she was a perfect host, and the accommodations were simple and comfortable.
Deanna's apartment was super close to everywhere I needed to be, and it's right by just about every form of public transportation you could want. Deanna was out of town during my stay, but she was great about keeping up with me via text. I definitely recommend staying with her!
I really enjoyed my stay here. It was pretty close to everything i needed in Portland, Deanna was such a sweet and accommodating individual, and her cat was nice and playful too! For me, the foam sleeping arrangement was perfectly fine. I had no issues with it as it was more comfortable than expected. In any case, i definitely recommend this option!
I had a great stay at Deanna's home. Deanna is very nice and friendly. She gives good advices about what to see in the area. I definitely had a great time here. Moreover, the place is convenient, because near the bus or the MAX.
Deanna was extraordinarily kind and lovely during my stay. She allowed me to book on short notice and was very accommodating. Her cat is very sweet, and I enjoyed the whole experience.
