Sweet room in the foodie district

House - Private room · SE 30th Ave, Portland, OR 97214, United States

The Space

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 legendary Pok Pok.

When guests stay in my home, I stay in the second bedroom with the pull out couch, so you get to stay in my lovely room. It's got a super comfy queen sized bed, and the room is decorated with an eclectic mix of West Elm and antique. Overall, my house is quite charming and cozy.

The shared bathroom is nice with glass tile work and porcelain sink. My kitchen is homey and includes a cute vintage stove.

You're welcome to keep food in my refrigerator, but I recommend that you check out all the nearby cafes and restaurants instead.

The front porch has 2 Adirondack chairs and the backyard has a patio table complete with umbrella for hanging out in the garden.

My cat Chica is very social and my upstairs neighbors have a funny Beagle, so if you're not into animals, this probably isn't the right place for you. UPDATE: I got a dog over Christmas. She's a lovely golden retriever. Super friendly! She'll love you.

Easy access to public transportation (lines 4 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.

Renting the entire house is also an option sometimes, so you could sleep 4. The price would increase to $150

  • Ashley was so kind and responsive prior to my scheduled stay. In the end, I didn't stay with her because a friend offered to put me up. I appreciated her flexibility.

  • Ashley was my first airbnb host and I had an amazing experience. She helped me
    feel right at home and helped me make some connections during my stay. I would definitely recommend staying with her and meeting her furry friends Chica and Florie

  • Ashley was equivalent to an old collage roommate--an easy spirit to coexist with in the morning or at night. Great location walking distance to Division or Hawthorne activities. Bonus feature are her friendly furry friends!!

  • Great accommodations in one of Portland's coolest neighborhoods. Easy on-street parking and walk to restaurants, cafes, and bakeries. Ashley is a great host! Dog and cat were quite gracious too. Terrific shower!

  • It was a lovely room in a great location! My boyfriend and I stayed for just 1 night but were very comfortable the whole time. We were close to great restaurants. Ashley was super sweet and her pets were the best. We would definitely stay again!

  • Ashley has a charming home in a wonderful area, super convenient to buses and delicious food. Her recommendations proved to be very helpful and she has two of the sweetest animals I've met (after my own of course)!

    The bed is SO comfortable and the shower was excellent in both flow and temperature. I would stay again next time I am in Portland.

  • I really enjoyed staying at Ashley's. After being an airbnb host for several months, this was actually my first experience as an airbnb guest. Ashley was extremely helpful and made me feel welcome in her home. Her neighborhood is fantastic. She's right- it *IS* indeed the foodie district, just steps from PokPok, Ava Genes, Nuestra Cocina, Xico, Avignon, Little T's, Salt & Straw, and all the other delicious spots there. (Can you tell how I spent the weekend?) ;) It is also a short bike ride from Mt Tabor, with excellent running trails to hit up before the restaurants suck you in.

  • I would recommend Ashley's home to anyone who is looking for a comfortable place to stay in Portland. Both her dog Florie and cat Chica are very sweet. Ashley's bed is very comfortable. The shower had great water pressure, too, which feels like a luxury after a long day of walking around the city. You're a 5-minute walk away from Pok Pok, Sen Yai Noodle Shop, Lauretta Jean's pie shop and many delicious places to eat. It's also located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. All in all, home sweet home in PDX.

  • The room was exactly what we expected. Ashley's house was really cool and having a dog and a cat around made us feel almost like at home :-) The location was really good, with all the restaurants on Division and Hawthorne within walking distance. Bus connections to downtown were also good...

    September 2013
  • Had a great time in Portland staying at Ashley's place. So many coffee shops, restaurants and parks within walking distance and super easy to get downtown and other parts of the city. Best of all was having Ashley as a host to chat with, learn more about spots in Portland from, and enjoy the company of her four-legged family - Florie and Chica. This was my first AirBNB experience - I will definitely do this again.

About
I love living in Portland...work for a non profit environmental organization focused on renewable energy...love to hike and be outdoors. I'm so fortunate to live in the best neighborhood -- Clinton/Division -- the home of some of Portland's greatest restaurants including Nuestra Cocina, Pok Pok, Whiskey Soda Lounge and more! As a single woman living at home with a kitty (and more recently a new doggie), I tend to spend a lot of evenings out on the town with friends or hosting friends on my back patio, complete with my mini-farm of sunflowers. I'm a very 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.
