I'm a private chef and would love to cook you a nice home cooked meal while you are visiting us.

If your stay is during the weekend then you have the option for me not to be present. I love to cook and entertain, I'm a private chef on the side, always spending time in the kitchen making the house smell good.
A lot of great places to shop, eat, drink coffee, explore the beautiful parks, people watch.
There is a bus within a few blocks walking distance.

Our stay at Lena's place was fantastic! She is an absolutely exceptional host who makes you feel right at home. She was so warm, charming and easy to talk to that we quickly became friends. She drove us around Portland and showed us all the cool places, and we spent the weekend together with her and her fiancé - it was so much fun! Lena's apartment is very clean, spacious, with a lot of tasteful touches and nice design. The bedroom has a big and comfortable bed and a desk. The bathroom is clean and comfortable as well - it had everything we needed. In the morning Lena cooked breakfast for us that looked like a piece of art on our plates - she is a true kitchen magician! Not only we learned about Portland and local food, we also became good friends with Lena and Shey. Thank you so much for everything! We can't wait to host you guys in San Francisco!
Lena was great! Super helpful and available if we had any questions or issues. The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos, clean, chic, and conveniently located. I have no complaints had a great time!
We had a great stay at Lena's place! It was warm, charming and in a great location just a block off of Hawthorne. Lena was a great host. She was very responsive before we arrived and checkin was a breeze. She even left us a bottle of wine! I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Lena!
Lena is a fantastic host and she went the extra mile to make sure I felt welcome. Her place is much more spacious than I imagined, impeccably clean and charming. The location could not have been better, steps away from Hawthorne, but on a very quiet side street.
We loved Lena's place! It's super comfy & in the perfect location. Close to coffee, restaurants, bars & thrift stores. What more could you ask for.
Lena is the perfect host, she's very responsive & considerate. She left us presents & super cute notes!
Lena was great, readily available at all times to answer questions. The place was clean and comfortable and as-advertised. Visitor guides and instructions were included so it easy to find my way around the place and the city. The neighborhood is great, near hopping Hawthorne St., and there's a Stumptown coffee shop about 4 blocks away in the other direction. Highly recommended.
The host experience was great - she was there and showed me around. She even provided certain foods, and bus directions before hand. Actually one the best hosts I've encountered. The location was ideal, and the place was, in a word, inspiring. You could just feel all of the love in the apartment. Best feeling I've had at an Airbnb place. Top end host and place. Not one complaint whatsoever, and I'd definitely stay again.
A mom of two awesome kids. I'm a graphic designer and I work for Nike full time and I am also a private chef and I throw underground dinners at my place and serve amazing food and amazing wine. Enjoy outdoors. Good music and good company is always a great plus. Love to dance. Enjoys life to fullest.
