Tanasbourne Bedroom w/ Ensuite Bath

Apartment - Private room · NW Wheelock Pl, Hillsboro, OR 97006, United States

The Space

Spacious master bedroom with vaulted ceiling is in a beautiful new (2008) condo with central air/heating. Condo is on the 2nd and 3rd floors, so there are two flights of stairs. It is sadly not wheelchair accessible. Room with queen bed in quiet, peaceful, smoke-free home is a bibliophile's dream, as a huge section of my library is housed in this room and available to guest during their stay. Attached ensuite bathroom with standard-sized tub and shower ensure your privacy. Plenty of towels, toiletries, and a hairdryer. Rental also includes wifi internet access, but no cable or satellite (don't have that in the house anymore because of epic time suckage it creates).

Coffee or tea included every morning, if guest expresses interest. One shelf in fridge for guest's food storage and use of microwave, stove, etc. Shared meals may be arranged for an small extra charge.

Clubhouse has a fitness room and a swimming pool. Parking in designated guest spots in the Condo complex or on a side street. However, please know that parking has some limitations (mostly on weekends when folks seem to have more guests), so this place is best suited for someone who is willing to park across the street when guest spots are full or intends to use the Max Lightrail. Those who want to bring a bicycle may store it in the garage. Short (for me, but I do walk a lot in good weather) walk to Quatama Max station. The Streets of Tanasbourne mall (Macy's, REI, the Gap, Coldwater Creek, Loft, and more) many chain and local restaurants (Bambuza Vietnamese, Nice Rice, Xtreme Pizza, PF Chang's, Macaroni Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings, Noodles & Co., Chipotle, Panera, Jamba Juice, Einstein Bros. Bagels, and more), coffee shops ( two major chains and a local establishment called Insomnia Coffee that rocks!), and several grocery stores (Whole Foods, Safeway, Trader Joe's and Winco) are also within walking distance. The Rock Creek walking/bilking trail is nearby, as well as several parks. "Silicon Forest" location also great for business travelers working with tech companies such as Intel, as well as for families and visitors of student attending Pacific University's Hillsboro Health Professions Campus. Easy freeway access to Hwy. 26 for day trips into Portland, the Willamette Valley Scenic Wine country, and to the Oregon Coast. Hillsboro is a westside suburb in the greater Portland metro area. It is the center of the tech industry in Oregon.

ABOUT ME: I am a public school teacher/counselor, so, during the school year, I am out of the house from 7:30 to 5 on weekdays. I will be staying in the second bedroom (also on the third floor), as this is my private residence. As the photo shows, I am an a voracious reader (former high school and middle school English teacher). I am also an avid West Coast Swing dancer (2009-2011 president of the Portland Swing Dance Club) who also has background in Ballroom and Latin dances. I have ties/relationships with all the area's dance studios and venues. I am very knowledgeable about the local attraction in Hillsboro and throughout the greater Portland metro area (a family member is a travel professional with AAA). I keep a binder of maps, local attractions, menus, and important internet links in your room, so you can learn more about the area and interesting things to do while you are here.

This condo is my dream home and I am very proud of it, so I treat visitors as honored guests. Please feel free to ask questions about the community. I see this as an awesome opportunity to get to know people and share a calm, comfortable space, while making a little income to supplement my squeezed budget---darn those pesky education budget cuts!

  • I relocated to the Portland area and I needed a place to stay while I was looking for a job. I stayed with Kristy for several months. She was the ideal host, always attentive to my needs and doing everything possible to make me feel comfortable. The house is beautiful and in a great location, with convenient access to public transportation, grocery stores, and restaurants. It's also in a safe neighborhood if you enjoy taking a walk. This is my first Airbnb experience, and I couldn't have made a better selection.

  • My stay with Kristy was perfect! Her home was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The pool, fitness center, and nearby trails were very convenient. Great location for access to stores, businesses, and transportation.
    Kristy was a wonderful host and I felt right at home!

  • I stayed here for 4 days while in town for work. I wasn't there much because I was working a lot, but it is very nice and looks exactly like the pictures. It is very clean, quiet, great location and exactly what I needed. Much less expensive than any hotel in the area as well. I would stay there again and highly recommend to business travelers.

  • Perfect location for us as my husband was attending a conference so he took the car and I made the short walk to the MAX station and traveled all around Portland on train and bus and had a blast for $5! Kristy has a nice condo and the room is spacious with very adequate private bathroom. Would stay again if in Portland!

  • Kristy was a wonderful host. I stayed at her place for a month during my summer intern and the place is comfortable and very clean. The room looks exactly the same as the pictures and she also has a bunch of towels, shampoo etc. prepared for her guests. The neighborhood was very peaceful and safe. You do need a car to get around locally unless you plan to take the max to Portland. Overall a very pleasant stay!

    July 2013
  • Kristy was an awesome host. Even her emails and communications before I even booked a stay were welcoming and inviting. She was very accomadating with my schedule and very knowledgeable about the Portland area and very keen to share that knowledge. The room was exactly as described. Very clean and comfortable. I couldn't have asked for a nicer host and place to stay.

    October 2012
  • My stay with Kristy was great. The house, bedroom, and bath were really clean. Kristy was very friendly and kind to us. Overall, it was a delight to stay with her.

About
I have been a teacher/school counselor for 17 years. Secondary education is right up my alley, but I was moved to K-4 Elementary last year as budget cuts in my school district created a shuffling of jobs. Gotta love the tiny kids on cuteness and enthusiasm alone, but I have a special connection with middle school students that not all adults seem to have, so I would like to end up back in middle school at some point in the future. Middle schoolers crack me up and I can see past the orneriness to the goofy insecurity. I am a voracious reader (former high school and middle school English teacher), I love theatre (it was my undergrad major), and I am obsessed with West Coast Swing dancing. I also attend a yoga class once a week and walk a 10K about once a month. The best trip I ever took was when we took 17 8th grade Spanish students to Costa Rica. We stayed in a private home/hostel so we were able to get to know a Costa Rican family. Also being an ESOL teacher, I do have some Spanish--although it is a bit dodgy since I moved to Oregon from southern CA---which enabled me to flirt with the young men who run the zipline in Monteverdi as well as get the kids ice cream in San Jose. As I get older, I like my travel to include more nice homes and hotels with private bathrooms rather than "crashing" on someone's futon. I also tend to like city vacations with cultural activities more than outdoorsy things, but I have been fishing with my boyfriend a few times and I really like it. He says I'm freakin' lucky so far. I can do camping provided that the campground offers a hot shower, but "roughing it" beyond that is not in my DNA! I do have a thing about hygiene. I am funny and I have a snarky sense of humor. I am pretty no-nonsense and direct. My favorite comedy film is The Full Monty. I like situational humor and irony. My favorite film of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird (also my favorite book) because I am a strong advocate for social justice and I prefer films that are well-written and well-acted to action films (unless they are really clever). I'm just listing with Airbnb for the first time, so I'm not sure "how I am as a host," but I want folks to feel comfortable and to love Hillsboro/Portland. As a guest, I try to be flexible and to leave places as nice or better than I find them---actually, I think that's how I like to be in every situation.
