The Space


Welcome to your home away from home! I have a welcoming, charming, quiet, large home for you to enjoy. It's very peaceful here. My house is on a street that gets virtually no traffic, and the houses are somewhat far from each other.

Ideal location for easily getting around and walking to lovely neighborhoods like Reed, Hawthorne, Division and Woodstock. Very close to bus lines.

Safe, quiet, charming neighborhood in inner SE Portland. Just 5 blocks from shops, Trader Joe's, Open Space Cafe, Starbucks, restaurants, Walgreens, Reed College and a nice park. Also near a beautiful wooded walking/running path around a creek adjacent to Reed College, and The Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden. 20-minute drive or bus ride to downtown.

***** CAT ALLERGY ALERT: I have two cats. They are not allowed in the bedrooms but the severely allergic may have trouble in the rest of the house, though I keep it very clean and the cats are outdoors a lot. *****

People of all diversities and ethnicities are welcome here. LGBT-friendly.

You are encouraged to utilize the entire house during your stay. You'd have use of a full bathroom ON THE MAIN FLOOR (not in your room) with a bathtub and shower. It's just for you, or you'd share it if there are guests downstairs. Usually there are no additional guests (except in the summer),

There is a lot of privacy when you stay here. My room is far away from rooms 1 and 2. While I'm home a fair amount of the time, I'm quiet and will give you space if you want it.I'll also gladly socialize; it's up to you.

Children are welcome and I love them. Please check with me before booking if you have very young children who rise quite early and/or are very noisy.:) Children 5 yrs. and under stay for free (up to two of them for free).

We are 2 blocks from the #17 bus line (goes downtown and east of here) and 5 blocks from the #75 bus line (goes north/south on SE Cesar Chavez (aka 39th Ave). Easy connection to MAX trains.

My house is nicely furnished and inviting. Eat a meal at the large dining room table, complete with a view of the peaceful yard and the trees beyond. Or sit outside on the nice wood deck and watch the squirrels and cats play (not with each other though). :)

All hardwood floors, fireplace, W/D, cable tv, DVD player and movies. There are three TVs: in your room, a large one in the living room and one in the basement. Free Wifi too!

My two "Cat Ambassadors" will greet you and socialize with you. Teddy, the grey one, says almost nothing but will welcome you when you come home and sit on your lap if you let him. Cleo, they tiny striped one, has a delightful little squeak, talks a fair amount and likes to be petted.

I'm looking forward to meeting you! Non-smokers only, please

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Loved staying with Deborah in her lovely home. Felt immediately welcomed, comfortable, and cozy. She's such fun (wonderful violinist, by the way - went to see her in a show). A friendly home and a friendly host in a great part of Portland! Will definitely stay here again.

    October 2013
  • Debra's location was very convenient. She gave us free reign in her house. The upstairs room was quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed her friendly cats. Nice quiet neighborhood.

    September 2013
  • Deborah was a very accommodating and warm host. Beautiful garden and friendly cats. Will stay again next time we're in Portland.

    September 2013
  • My husband and I had our first AirBnB experience at Deb's lovely home, and we are sold! What a great chance to get to know the local neighborhood, through the eyes of a local. Thanks for a wonderful time, Deb!

    September 2013
  • Deborah was so warm and welcoming. Her place is very cute, and her cats awesome. She is very kind, but also will leave you to your own devices if that's what you wish. It was a great experience.

    August 2013
  • Deb is a lovely and warm hostess and made sure we were comfortable. We had full run of her house and she made sure we had something to eat in the morning. We would stay there again.

    August 2013
  • I was traveling with my 13-year-old son. We had a great stay at Deb's house and she was a wonderful host. The space was clean and spacious and we had complete use of the kitchen. We decided not to rent a car while in Portland, and it was easy enough to get around the city from the 17 and 75 buses nearby. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom, I would definitely recommend this listing!

    August 2013
  • The house is in a lovely, quiet area of Portland. The room was twice as large as many hotel rooms that cost a lot more. In addition, Deborah is a wonderful host. She gave me information about the city, names of restaurants, and told me what events were going on. I enjoyed my stay, and I will stay here again when I am in Portland.

    July 2013
  • Deborah's place is very homey and casual, peaceful and quiet. Her two cats are affectionate and very well behaved! We woke to birdsong in the garden, and though a short drive from the city center, we found the BnB very convenient for two days of packed sightseeing! The second story room is spacious and delightful, and this 66 and 70-year-old found the climb easy!

    July 2013
  • Deborah has a great place and is a friendly host. House is nice sized and well furnitured. We stayed upstairs and regular bed was comfy with nice pillows and a nite stand to put personal stuff like phone since I use as alarm. 2nd bed for daughter was air mattress and worked great. Transfer of Key went well. Good neighborhood off beaten path so no noise issues. I would recommend to others and will use in future.

Hi! I'm from the Bay Area originally and lived in SF for many years. Now I live in Portland, OR. I have a beautiful, quiet, furnished large 3+ BR house with hardwood floors in Portland. I'd love to do a trade for part of the winter with someone who lives in the SF Bay Area. I love children and animals. I have a cat who sometimes travels with me, but not always. My home is also available to be rented or shared. I'm a quiet, responsible, mature woman, late 40's, a homeowner. Flexible, excellent communicator, relaxed and warm. I've had many roommates before. Non-smoker, almost no alcohol, and no drugs. I'm a musician and singer but usually don't travel with any instruments.
