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.
Interaction with Guests
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.
1. Please no overnight guest.
2. No smoking inside the apartment. Smoking is allowed out on the back patio or in the alcove outside the front door.
3. If you'd like to open a window on the first floor please place a screen in front of it so the cat doesn't get out.
4.Whenever leaving the apartment please shut and lock all windows on the first floor. The front door locks on its own.
Very comfortable room and apartment, quiet but centrally located. Brents a very nice guy as well, he made me feel very welcome.
I really enjoyed all of the bright colors in this space, it was very cheerful and inviting. Overall, it was a very good experience.
Brent apartment is in the best location in portland.
I love the roome.
The house was very clean and so was the bathroom.
Although brent has a cat there is no indication for the pet at all:-)
The house was lovely and so was brent.
I hope to book with brent again next time I am in portland.
Incredible location, extremely kind host and vintage, chic decor. Need I say more? We couldn't believe how straightforward everything was. Brent left us lovely notes and list of places that we could check out. Also, an amazing mattress to sleep on!!
Very comfortable room with a very welcoming host. Brent was a cool guy who respected my privacy and was very helpful when I had any questions. He gave great suggestions on places to eat or sights to see in the neighborhood. Really hard to beat the location - in the heart of NW District with public transportation within walking distance. Overall, great place to stay for a short visit to the city of Portland.
Brent's place offered a very comfortable stay and was located in the best part of NW, with many shops, restaurants, and bars within walking distance. Local transportation was very accessible from the location as well. Brent was very accommodating and provided some excellent recommendations for things to do and places to eat in the area.
Charming place in a good location. The listing is as described. Brent was hospitable and available any time to answer questions.
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.
