Located in the heart of Portland's hopping Historic Mississippi District, this spacious 2nd story apartment built in 1892 (renovated in 2005)sits next to one of the city's favorite music venues: Mississippi Studios. Ideal for small groups of friends.

The Space

This spacious inner-North Portland apartment is located in the heart of one of Portland's most popular neighborhoods. Cafes, sleek bars, boutiques, trendy storefronts and food carts line the vibrant, leafy Historic MIssissippi District.

The apartment sits aside / atop one of Portland's favorite music venues: Mississippi Studios and Bar Bar (attached bar and restaurant). Off-street parking is easily found nearby. We are located right on the TriMet #4 bus line and the MAX Light Rail Yellow Line (1/2 mile walk to either Albina Station or Overlook Station) - just minutes from downtown Portland.

**PLEASE NOTE: the apartment sits (email hidden) (BAR BAR) - on a street with several other bars and is located next door to Mississippi Studios (a music venue). If you or anyone in your party are light sleepers, you should consider another place. Most guests don't have an issue with the noise but everyone has different tolerances to it so please check in with your party before booking.**

While in town, if you'd like to see a show , please check out Mississippi Studios on the web and let me know.

There is a one time cleaning fee of 60.00

Guest Access

Entire apartment and private back balcony. Full kitchen. Full bath. On-site, free washer / dryer. Free wi-fi.

Interaction with Guests

Lots of interaction or none at all, I'm readily available and enjoy interacting with guests via text if need be. I enjoy answering questions about Portland-ish "things to do" in the area. I usually stop by the property every 2-3 days a week as I oversee operations at the music venue below; however, guests will typically interact with one of our managers when checking in and checking out.

The Neighborhood

Please visit Historic Mississippi Avenue on the web.

Small conv. store located three doors down (NuRite Market). New Seasons grocery store is a 10 minute walk. The neighborhood has over 60+ shops and restaurants.

Getting around

Very easy, Visit TriMet on the web for more information on Portland's public transit system and light rail.

The MAX Light Rail Yellow Line is near-by, running Interstate Avenue. The Yellow Line stops at both the Albina-Mississippi Station or Overlook Station - both stations are about a 1/2 mile walk. The TriMet #4 bus runs up and down Mississippi Ave. with 10 minute, frequent service to downtown and central SE Portland (Division Street).

Other Things to Note

Please see note about the apartment sitting atop the bar next to Mississippi Studios (concert venue). If anyone in your group is a light sleeper, the apartment probably isn't a good fit. Although there is no central AC, we do have AC window units and fans which keep he apartment really cool, even on the rare weeks of +90 degree weather in July / August.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The place was perfect for our needs. It was perfectly located and getting in/out was super easy. Kevin was a prompt and thoughtful host. The extra AC units were a really nice touch on the warm summer days.

    July 2014
  • Our host Kevin was very friendly and accommodating! The rental was perfect for a group to stay in and explore the neighborhood, which was lively and exciting!

    July 2014
  • Kevin's place was great! Perfect location, with easy transport links to anywhere in the city. We were running late and arrived much later than anticipated but had no issues getting the keys. The apartment is very spacious and wonderful. Comfy beds and plenty of them. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone looking (email hidden) in a great neighbourhood!

    June 2014
  • We had a great time during our stay in Portland. Kevin was super nice and quick to respond. The apt is located in a very lively neighborhood and parking was easy. We were very happy with the place. Thanks for the hospitality!

    June 2014
  • The host is very friendly, responsive and flexible to short-term changes of plans. The appartment as such is great, well equipped and clean. The neighbourhood is awesome with a great selection of characteristic restaurants, bars and shops. Because it's located directly above a music club, it might get noisy at night - but if you're looking for great music and evenings out you will be downstairs anyways!
    Thanks Kevin.

    May 2014
  • Kevin was great. He was very quick to respond and check in on things. The apt was in a perfect location, walking distance to so much and a quick cab to most of the best places Portland has to offer.

    The apt is loud since it is above a bar, so read the apt description carefully. We knew from the description, so it wasn't an issue for us at all. The bar downstairs and music venue are AMAZING. Fun dancing and great outdoor space to drink beer by the fire.

    We had a blast and would definitely stay here again.

    May 2014
  • The apartment was (email hidden) to come back and relax or just hang out. The bar downstairs was top notch and the food delicious. Half an hour from downtown (via PT), half an hour from the mountains, and about an hour and a half from the coast. Great location and great hosts!

    March 2014
  • Awesome place and location, everything is exactly as stated; highly recommended. Thanks for hosting us :)

    March 2014
  • We LOVED staying here; and Tali was so amazing in helping us get settled. When we arrived everything was perfect - including having a warm fireplace lit for us upon arrival, which was amazing since it was snowing outside!

    The bar right downstairs was a blast and we hung out there for a while. The bar staff is fun & friendly and the drinks are honest & fairly priced. They've got a late night happy hour on Sunday-Tuesday which I'd highly recommend.

    Perfect location. Book this!

    February 2014
  • A large spacious apt. Above a bar/restaurant. Definitely loud and thumping until 3AM.If you can't sleep, join them downstairs fof a few beers. Hip location, convient mart 3 doors down. Ample free parking within one block.
