This is my house mates' bedroom that they rent when they are out of town. It is in a large, cozy house with four creative house mates (artists/musicians). The house is amazingly centrally located and has the feeling of a home away from home.
The bedroom features a large main room plus a huge closet with a window, which is where we keep a full size bed. There is also a rack for hanging clothing and several shelves in the closet. It is truly a Huge closet and makes sleeping feel like you're in a cozy cocoon. The main part of the bedroom is large and has a desk and chair, a reading chair and bookshelf, and a record player and record collection you are free to use!
The house is very large so you never feel cramped here. There are so many different spots to hang out and get cozy. All of the house mates are very friendly. We are supportive of all kinds of different lifestyles and celebrate diversity and creativity. We have two cats who are quite friendly as well.
Guests will have their own private bedroom with full-sized bed. They will have access to two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a shower and tub, as well as clean towels. They are free to use the kitchen and any dishes that are needed as well as space in the refrigerator. The common areas in the house (living room, dining room, front porch, back porch, basement, back yard) are all open to the guests as well. Guests are also free to use the washer and dryer.
Interaction with Guests
The 2 other adults who live in the house all have varying schedules. We are rarely all home at once. We are all very friendly and can offer suggestions and information about Portland. However, you probably won't interact with us for very long periods of time as we all have a lot going on much of the time.
This house is very centrally located with easy access to downtown via car, bike, or public transit. It is also within walking distance of the Alberta Arts district and the Mississippi neighborhood (two of the coolest spots in Portland full of coffee shops, bars, restaurants, clothing and goods shopping, and music venues). There are also two healthy grocery stores (New Season's and Whole Foods) within a short walk from the house. There is a large and beautiful city park literally 100 feet from the front door as well!
There are major bus lines on both ends of the street within a 1-2 minute walk in each direction.
We ask that our guests pick up after themselves, keeping the common areas clean. We do not charge an additional cleaning fee for the room so we ask that you leave it in good condition. Respect for the house and those who live there is a must!
The house was very comfortable and the room had a lot of space! The pets were friendly. The neighborhood was near a park and convenient to a lot of restaurants and shopping.
Shannon and Erin's place was great. Super easy no-hassle check-in and check-out. The flat is located well. Lots of nice cafes in the area. Thanks to Portland's super good public transport system, it's easy, fast and cheap to get to downtown.
This place was great! I had a late flight arrival time, but Shannon and her housemates were very accomadating. I only stayed for one night, so unfortunately I never met them. Would love to stay here again and spend more time!
Loved the home, vibes, and our first airbnb experience. Nothing was confusing and they worked with us!
Great place to stay while visiting Portland. Shannon is incredibly welcoming and her house is clean and quiet. Everyone I met during my stay was pleasant and friendly, and the two resident cats were sweet...
Stay here, you will not regret it!
