The Space

Large, airy, upstairs bedroom with lots of storage, perfect for longer term stays. It is usually only available for stays of 2 weeks or longer. Has shared bath with me (owner) but I mainly use downstairs bathroom.
I also list a smaller room for shorter stays. This second listing is called"Cheerful, musical, eclectic home". See my other listing for more pictures of the house in general.
The house has a large sunroom and backyard garden.
Built in the 1920's, it houses the owner who is retired, but active in music, gardening, and various craft activities, and who likes to meet people from different places. Also, there are 2 cats, and often another renter(s). My bedroom is also upstairs.
This location is in a quiet neighborhood close to a large park, but only 5 min walk to local coffee shops, restaurants, and funky stores, in what is called Multnomah Village. Easy bus access to downtown Portland, about 15 or 20min. Only a 10 min drive with car. On street parking. WiFi access in home. Longer term renters may have full kitchen privileges, and access to a washer and dryer.
For all stays, long or short, I hope you will feel that this is your temporary "home away from home".
Arriving at the airport it is easy to take "the Max" rapid transit train to downtown and transfer to bus 44 or 45 and get off within 2 or 3 blocks of the house. The frequency of buses varies depending on time of day.

  • Sue's guest quarters are at the top of a house that sits at the top of a little hill -- from your spacious bedroom (huge closets! and the bathroom is en suite!) -- views of roof tops and hills, trees and flowers and the sound of birds. We loved the quiet life in the village of Multnomah and the convenience of a quick drive into downtown Portland. We fell in love with the manx kitties at Sue's (Missy and Duke); and with the music that floats upstairs on Sunday evenings when Sue's choral group practices.

  • Sue's home was just what I needed. The room was spacious and comfortable. The house itself was cozy, fun and welcoming. Sue is fun to talk to and has very interesting stories. Public transportation is also convenient. You won't go wrong here.

Originally from So. Calif. I have been in Portland for about 35 years. I am retired and don't know how I managed to find time to work! I like re-modeling (less as my body gets older!) and gardening. I spend a lot of time involved with musical activities playing cello - orchestras and chamber music, and both singing and choral directing. I also very much like meeting new people and people from different places, and love to travel myself. I am, also very lucky to have both of my children living in Portland.
