The Space

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's little cottage apartment is the best bargain in Portland bnb's! She wasn't there when I stayed, so I didn't get to meet her. But she provides a great bargain for being in a fun Portland neighborhood, across the river from downtown. Personally, I'd suggest not trying to pet her cat at all. She's a nice kitty, but she did scratch me a little. Maybe she feels less comfortable when Deanna's not there.

  • It was exactly what I needed for the night, my only qualm about the place was I didn't get along with the cat (which is very unusual for me)

    Response from Deanna:

    hey there. sorry you and Mimi didn't get along. I will try and be more clear for the next friend, or guest, regarding where to find things (like mimi's table). Also, did you see my message that I think you left your phone charger here? I can mail it back to you, just need an address.

  • Deanna is super welcoming and friendly! She has a cozy place that isn't too far from the public transportation system. For the affordable price, it's definitely worth it! And her cat is a sweetheart :-)

  • Deanna was a wonderful host and did a great job making me comfortable in her home. She is very friendly and a very cool person, and I enjoyed conversing with her. The location is wonderful, and conveniently located near many stores, public transportation and the Rose Quarter. I definitely recommend staying at her place.

  • 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.

  • 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 born in San Diego, and moved to Kona, Hawaii with my family when I was 10. I came to Oregon for college in 1997 and have lived here off and on since then, most recently since 2006. I like to do a lot of things- outdoors, concerts, eating good food etc. I am vegan and a bit of an environmentalist. I am into recycling and creating as minimal waste as possible. I am progressive and open to change and new experiences.
