Just 1 block from Restaurant Row. Highly walkable with easy access to the #2 bus line. Incredibly charming home with a friendly host, chatty kitty and all the hiking guides you could ever want.

The house is literally a block and a half to dozens of desirable restaurants and cafes. I do not provide food or beverages. You are welcome to bring in beer, wine and use my coffee maker.

Many of my reviews mention Florie. She passed away in early March 2022.

The space
Comfy private room in SE Portland cottage with shared bath. I have a great little home just a block and a half from the thriving foodie district on SE Division. The neighborhood is super walkable -- just 10 blocks to the famed Seven Corners New Seasons and 3 blocks from some great restaurants. Sadly Pok Pok closed during the pandemic.

Your room has a high-end, super comfy queen sized bed, and the room is decorated with an eclectic mix of modern and antique. My home is a charming 1910 bungalow that is divided into a duplex. I live in the downstairs unit which is about 950 sf. (Please note that this is a small home, and my bedroom is just inches away from yours. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, this is not the right place. I am fully supportive of people having a vibrant sex life, but my home is not the best place for that.)

The shared bathroom has beautiful glass tile work and a porcelain pedestal sink. My kitchen is homey but nothing fancy.

You're welcome to keep food in my refrigerator, but I recommend that you check out all the nearby cafes and restaurants instead. I'd prefer that you not plan on preparing meals here. There's a little coffee maker in the kitchen if you want to bring your own coffee. I have filters.

The front porch has 2 Adirondack chairs and the backyard has a patio table complete with umbrella for hanging out on a sunny evening. (Summer in Oregon starts July 5, in case you haven't heard.)

My cat Chica is 22 (yes 22) years old and very social. If you're not into animals, this probably isn't the right place for you. I've been told by a few guests that my cat's meowing in the early morning is an unappreciated alarm clock. This can be solved by feeding her if I'm not around for some reason. Update: as I continue to host more and more on Airbnb, my cat seems to love my guests more and more...and she prefers them to me. So if you aren't into cats, this may not be the best place for you :)

Easy access to public transportation (lines 2 and 14) and easy on street parking. It's about a 15-20 minute ride to downtown Portland. Transportation from the airport: $35 cab ride or one hour by train/bus.

Where you’ll be

Portland, Oregon, United States

Richmond was named in Sunset magazine as one of the best neighborhoods in the west. It is really booming now. New restaurants and cafes every day, it seems. Very walkable and friendly.

If you're reading about Portland, you'll find the area referred to as Clinton/Division or Restaurant Row. I'm just 10 blocks from the Hawthorne District.

I love living in Portland. I feel so fortunate to be part of a vibrant community. I am the co-founder of a nonprofit business organization that is working on issues of affordable and stable housing, safe transportation and economic development.

I'm so fortunate to live in a really fun neighborhood -- Clinton/Division (also called Richmond) -- the home of some of Portland's greatest restaurants including Nuestra Cocina, Pok Pok, Whiskey Soda Lounge and more! Do not miss the SE Wine Collective on SE 35th/Division!

As a single woman living with a dog and cat, I tend to spend a lot of evenings out on the town with friends or hosting friends on my back patio. I'm a warm and kind person and love sharing information about my city (as well as nearby hiking trails) with folks who are new to town. If you're looking to move to Portland, I have a great network of folks you can meet either for job hunting or real estate options.

During your stay

I'm the co-founder of a young nonprofit organization and have a very busy schedule, so I'm usually coming and going, and when I'm home, I'm usually working. I'm happy to provide guidance for your stay in Portland -- I love sharing highlights about my town! -- but you're free to go your own way, too. Feel free to ask me about Portland as well as day trips to the coast and mountains. I love to play travel agent!

The bathroom is shared. This is usually not a problem for anyone. Typically, my guests are on vacation and are on a pretty flexible schedule, and I am off to work in the mornings. It's inevitable that there will be times when we'll want to be in the bathroom at roughly the same time. I find that chatting the evening before about the next day's schedule is a pretty easy way to avoid most scheduling conflicts.

My house is small, so I keep stuff in all the small closets including the one in your room. I will need to access your room occasionally to get stuff. I usually do this in the evening when my guests are out. I will, of course, be very respectful of your space and will always ask you before coming into the room!
