Handmade and inspired design walkable to Mississippi and Alberta st. Gourmet kitchen, hundreds of house plants. Featured in design magazines and Portlandia.
Welcome to Portland and our wonderful home.
We are Emily, an art director/designer/artist/musician; Adam, a musician/screenprinter; Cowbear the cat, and Donut the little dog.
Featured in the recent season of Portlandia, Kun:el Magazine, Popeye Magazine, and Linere Magazine.
Our home has wonderful amenities:
Huge remodeled kitchen with concrete counter tops, 5 burner gas stove. yes, we love to cook! And have many wonderful Le Creuset cookware, nice Shun knives, dishwasher, and raw walnut counter top.
Our wonderfully big open living room is decked out with kilim rugs, sofa and chairs, and driftwood chandelier, and many plants, Emily's art as well as art from local artists, and artifacts from our travels.
The lush backyard has a fire pit, fruit trees, organic vegetable garden and nice spots to lay about in the sun on one of our many woven blankets, though for the season it is a bit overgrown and wild.
We have 2 rooms for rent, and your room has a nice south facing window, woodfloors, nice closet space, and a hardwood bed frame. The room has a Queen bed. Also we just got brand new sheets, duvet covers, and new pillows! The pillow covered are made by Adam!
You will share a bathroom that has a rain shower, lots of plants, and toilet and sink with our other guests if they are there, and we also use that shower sometimes, but we have our own bathroom.
There is also a toilet just off the kitchen.
The house is very well insulated, stays nice and toasty in the winter and cool in the summer.
We use all natural soaps and cleaning products, and are sensitive to strong perfumes and colognes. Please be respectful of using them in the house. We are totally into essential oils and nice smelling things, but everyones nose is different!
We are still working on our home and there are a few unfinished things, but they are all cosmetic, and nothing that takes away from the comforts and overall style of the place.
Collectively we have lived in Portland for over 25 years, and will happily share our favorite breakfast spots, bars, venues, and more with you! Maybe there is a cool BBQ, concert, or art opening while you are in town, we will let you know!
Our home is close to Alberta Street, Mississippi ave, the Sunday farmers market is 2 blocks away! There are multiple transit options within 2 blocks as well.
We are near great bars, fantastic dining, and a few great parks as well.
Pets allowed on a case by case basis.
We really look forward to having you in our home.
Emily, Adam, Cowbear, and Donut.
We hope you treat our home with the care that you would treat your own place. We have rebuilt this place from the old bones of it's 1906 frame, and put lots of love into it.
If you cook, we hope you will clean up after yourself.
Otherwise, we want you to feel comfortable and at home in our home.
The front gate must always be closed right behind you when you are coming in and out, as the dog has his tricky ways of escaping!
When you use the lockbox, we ask that you ALWAYS leave the key in the box after unlocking the door, as we sometimes use it as well.
Smoking is not allowed inside, but you can smoke on the front porch.
There is free street parking.
Excellent neighborhood, very walkable and close to public transportation. Emily and Adam were very communicative and we felt very comfortable in their home (their animal friends were very respectful too). Their space was inviting and clean. Super comfortable bed and wonderful shower.
Adam and Emily have a very nice house.
Location is convenient and close to attractions.
They leave a lot of documentation and notes to help you discover Portland. We had a great stay !
Adam and Emily were great! They gave us all the information we needed for a smooth and easy stay in their beautiful home. And they threw in an amazing towel Adam's company makes.
The location was great and very close to delicious restaurants and the bed we slept in was very comfortable!
Very beautiful house, Emily and Adam are very nice too!
it's great experience to living at there
thx Emily and adam
Beautiful house in a great neighborhood. Emily and Adam were very helpful and so friendly. The location is great, and their place is cozy, super clean and relaxing. Would definitely recommend and stay again on my next city visit.
We loved our time at Adam and Emily's house! It was a perfect base for exploring Portland. We didn't get a chance to meet Emily, but Adam was super friendly and welcoming. Their house is beautifully decorated -- the photos don't do it justice! The house was so quiet and peaceful. Most of the time, we felt like we had the house to ourselves. Our room was comfortable, and while you do share the bathroom with other Airbnb guests, it wasn't a problem for us. They gifted us soap and a tea towel, too, which was so nice. Thank you to Adam for a wonderful stay!!
Adam and Emily were nice hosts. We really liked Donut (their stray dog) and lovely Cowbear the Cat. They were friendly and laid back. Their house was a great base for exploring Portland. Their house was well-connected to public transport (a bus ride and a tram ride from the airport to the house); and within walking distance to two major streets: Martin Luther King Boulevard and Burnside that run buses to all the major districts.

We are a fashion designer/musician/artist/creative director/foodie and a screenprinter/musician/sports fan/best friend/designer super thrilled to travel and host wonderful guests in our favorite place.
We are avid thrift-shoppers and have amazing luck when it comes to discovering treasures and parking spaces. With this special knack, we create beauty in our space, and consider the atmosphere to be a very important part of the day.
Recently our home was featured in the beautiful Japanese lifestyle magazine Ku:nel, and also on Portlandia. In the spring we will also be featured in a beautiful new book about Bohemian homes. We are excited that our love of interior spaces has allowed us to create intentional and plant filled space to host you.
Emily loves to cook, read, make art, eat at the best restaurants, get out into nature, and spend time with friends playing music, feasting, and enjoying the good life that the Northwest has to offer. She is pretty into Instagram and would love if you tag the photos of our house with @Emily_Katz and @Goldenruledesign, so we can see what you post!
Adam owns his own screenprinting business, he loves the outdoors, can school you on basketball trivia, and loves to eat as much as Emily loves to cook.
We look forward to hosting you and sharing our favorite places with you!
