About this listing

I've lived in my apartment for over 10 years. It's a beautiful 1920's vintage building and I love how quiet it is in the heart of bustling northwest Portland.

The space

Renting a great little guest room in my garden apartment in the heart of Northwest Portland. This centrally located building is 2 blocks from 2 bus lines (#15 and #77), and 3 blocks from the streetcar.

Nestled in the back corner of this classic 1920's courtyard building is my multistory, 2 bdrm, 1 bathroom apartment. I am currently renting a 2nd story guest room (one, full-sized bed) with a southern view of my patio garden. This is a shared bathroom situation. My bedroom is directly across the hall, but with the doors closed this is a pretty quiet room. Though it's rarely needed here in Portland, my apartment does NOT have air conditioning. The room has west and south facing windows and gets a good breeze overnight. There is also a fan for your use if wanted.

Though it's located just off the bustling and trendy Northwest 23rd Ave this is a relatively quiet apartment (aside from my neighbor occasionally singing along as he plays his guitar, the chirping of the birds, and the bark of a neighbor's dog.) The neighborhood is filled with bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and various shopping options. Additionally, Wallace Park is a block away and a hike in Forest Park is a mere 10 minutes by foot.

Includes: Wi-Fi, access. Shared kitchen use. Full bed. Room is located on 2nd floor. Smoking allowed on patio or in the entry outside the front door. I do have one cat, but she mostly stays in my room. Her name is Gray, she's curious and friendly, but a bit skittish.

This is a shared bathroom and kitchen situation. You're also welcome to hang out in the living room and dinning room and on the back patio.

It just depends on the guest and our schedules. If you're around and want to chat, I am generally available.

It's very walkable and there are lots of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. It's also full of old houses and interesting architecture. It's a vibrant neighborhood with lots of people watching.

There are two buses (#15 and #77) and the streetcar with a few blocks. I don't own a car and rely primarily on public transit and walking.

Awesome location near cute shops, cafes, and everything in between. The whole apartment is such a bright and cheerful space and was very tidy. Brent was welcoming and flexible with check in/check out. It was the perfect place to stay during my time in Portland!

Brent's place was very unique and charming! We had no problems getting in, Brent left very clear instructions on how to get in and had helpful instructions on the desk to help us get settled. Greeted by his friendly cat Gray. Would definitely recommend staying at his place! Close to cute restaurants and shops.

Brent was communicative with us regarding check in and check out and just friendly overall. He made sure we had fans as Portland was having a crazy heat wave while we were there! Otherwise, it's a nice place, in a great area and I recommend it. Thanks Brent!

Location was great. Ideally located off of 23rd NW where all the hip and cool shoppings and eateries are. Great for walks. Brent provided free street parking vouchers, that was really nice of him. The home is old and has a cat, so to be expected a little funk and a bit of hair at certain places. We stuck to ourselves so none of these were an issue. Brent kept the place very neat! BTW, the room had great nature lights!

I'm a pretty easy-going, quiet, gay guy living in beautiful Portland. I love cooking and eating good food and drinking good wine with friends.

I'm trying to create my dream job by being a part of the founding team of an upstart company called Kids for Recycling. To make money, I'm a server and a pretty avid Airbnb host for about a year now.

I've really enjoyed meeting a lot of interesting and friendly people hosting and look forward to meeting many more.
