3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and one sweet 1887 Folk Victorian with gigabit internet! Chickens & bees, nice yard, bike storage, walking distance to everything in a family-friendly neighborhood. Private and quiet, we have a wonderful home base for exploring all that Portland has to offer.

(Note: This listing was originally for just our lower level bed/bath/living area and not the whole house. We're offering the entire house for 2 months so have expanded this listing to reflect this information.)

The space

We have a bright, cozy, fully renovated 1887 farmhouse-style Victorian with soaring 11 ft ceilings on the main floor and great natural light. Tons of books, comfortably lived-in furnishings, and space to relax.

The first bedroom on the main floor has a king-sized bed. The second bedroom (best for kids) has a loft bed with 2 twin mattresses. The third bedroom is in the lower-level and features a full-sized bed, large closet, desk and bookshelves (stocked, if you haven't yet had the chance to hit Powell's).

The main floor features a large bathroom with a claw-foot tub, a modern, well-stocked kitchen with a gas stove, and a beautiful old fireplace mantel in the dining room (with a custom table made from the original support beam from the house that comfortably seats 6).

The lower level also also has a separate French-door keyless entryway, with a relaxed family room area to hang out in. Wi-Fi and laundry too! Also if the weather is agreeable, we have a great backyard for relaxing in.

Please note no television - if that is important to you.

Our home is located very close-in in SE Portland's Buckman neighborhood. We are in a quiet residential block right on 2 main bike routes and walking distance (~1 mile) to downtown and the Oregon Convention Center, shopping (Burnside, Belmont, Hawthorne), historic 2nd run movie theaters with pizza and microbrews (Laurelhurst Theater, Avalon, Cinemagic) many amazing restaurants (Le Pigeon, Biwa, Nong's Khao Man Gai, Screen Door, Luce), coffee shops ( Floyds, Three Friends, Heart), the Vegan Village (for all things Vegan), Voodoo Doughnuts Too, innumerable bars and brew pubs, the Doug Fir and Revolution Hall music venues, and more. It is also on multiple bus lines and walking distance to the Max train, and just blocks from the new streetcar.

For sporting activities Portland is like Mecca. There are two indoor climbing gyms within 10 blocks - the Portland Rock Gym (sport and bouldering) and The Circuit (huge bouldering gym). A mile away you can rent kayaks to paddle around on the Willamette from the Portland Kayak Company or rent bikes from several shops to take out for some great mountain biking or a cruise on a 40 mile loop around the multi-use path called the Springwater Corridor, or just getting around town. In the winter months you can be at the lifts in 90 minutes at Timberline or Mt. Hood Meadows for a day of downhill, or maybe take a snow shoe ($10 rental) or XC ski around Trillium lake. 90 minutes the other direction lands you at the coast where you can rent surfboards and try the even break at Oswald West, a great beginner beach. Last but not least the Columbia River Gorge has some of *the* best wind in the world for para-sailing, kiteboarding, wind surfing and all that.

Charming old home, completely updated. Perfect for families with kiddos. The kids loved the bunk room and cool open basement for playing. The location is amazingly walkable. We found some great coffee shops, breweries, restaurants, wine bars and shops all less than half a mile. Ada was extremely helpful and responsive whenever I had a question. We had a wonderful time in Portland and would definitely stay here again!

What a gem! We stayed in the main house (main floor + basement unit), and couldn't have been happier. The arrangement was perfect for my two young children, husband and I, and my mom. The kids were in heaven with all the books, toys, and games to keep them occupied, and the bunk beds with fairy lights were a hit. The house is so thoughtfully designed and updated, with plenty of comfortable seating and open play areas, and the back yard was so nice to relax and play in on a warm summer evening. The house was brilliantly clean and ready for us when we checked in. The location is fabulous, with so much exploring to do on foot. Communication was simple and straightforward, and we actually didn't have many questions since everything was so well-prepared. I will definitely stay here again next time I come to Portland, and recommend you do the same!

You can't find more lovely and communicative hosts than Ada, Jim and Azure! We stayed with our two young daughters in the entire house; our girls enjoyed the basement full of toys, the back yard full of berries, and the chalkboard in the kitchen! My husband and I did some reading in the living room's comfortably deep couches. We found the feather duvets too heavy on the otherwise comfortable beds (light blankets were provided). Ada encouraged us to sleep with the windows open, as there are virtually no mosquitoes (I doubted this, but she was right--and we slept better on those nights than on the one hot night we had to sleep with the windows closed and the air conditioners running). The neighbors were generally quiet. Super tasty casual and family-friendly dining is close by. We loved Doug Fir (more than Zell's) for early breakfast, and I kept dreaming of the delicious salmon bowl I had at Poke Mon. We rented from Waterfront Bicycle (a Weehoo recumbent trailer with pedals for my 4.5 year old and a tandem for my 9 year old and me)--fantastic! Thanks to Ada and family for providing the perfect home base for a most memorable trip!

This is a truly incredibly Airbnb for groups. It's in a quiet neighborhood, but still close to a number of great restaurants and bars, and very close to public transit as well. Would highly recommend!

Ada and Jim were great hosts, helping us out when we needed it during our stay. The house is very clean and comfortable. The room is in the basement, and you don't get much noise at all from the rest of the house The location is a very quiet, a nice neighborhood, with public transit not far away. We had a great stay!

Ada and Jim's place is in a very sweet little hood with lots nearby to explore. They were very nice and easy to deal with - and super accommodating when I arrived late and needed to leave my luggage an extra few hours. The bed was comfy and the bathroom clean. The unit has an open staircase connecting it to the upstairs, so it isn't a fully sealed off suite, but that wasn't an issue for me and it does have a private entrance which is nice. Overall, a great place to lay your head while in PDX!

Ada & Jim User ProfileAda & Jim is a superhost.

Jim and I are midwestern transplants from Columbus, Ohio, who love our adopted hometown of Portland, work in IT, and don't travel nearly as much as we wish we could. We have an wonderful kiddo who brings love and laughter into our lives every day. We are a pet-free home, although we do have the Portland-mandated chickens.
