I will be out of town the following dates and you will have the place all to yourself:
January 8-January 17
Dear traveler...you can stay in your own private room in a cute little house in walking distance to Alberta Arts District hotspots. Amenities include tempur-pedic king size bed, garden veggie abundance, farmer's market, bicycles in all shapes and sizes (with locks and lights!), dog and cat love, nearby parks/bike paths, wifi, flat screen tv/dvd/Apple TV/Netflix, friendly neighborhood bars, farm to market restaurant and butcher shop, trendy shops, and a local roaster coffee shop.
Conveniently located just 10 minutes from the PDX airport and an easy 35 minute jaunt to downtown via the bus/max line. In addition to being walking distance to Alberta Arts district, it is easily accessible to the quaint Beaumont and Hollywood neighborhoods.
For dog lovers, there is a fenced in dog park directly across the street from my house at Meeker Technical School and my back yard is fenced in as well.
I leave town often...so I may or may not be around, but if I am...would be into making a meal or two. Very close to main public transit lines to take you all over town. My favorite neighborhood hotspots are New Seasons Market, Old Salt Deli and Restaurant, Miss Zumstein's Bakery and Coffee Shop with locally roasted Extracto Coffee (both just opened!), Common Grounds Wellness Center for hot tubs and saunas ((website hidden)) and the Kennedy School for more hot tubs, food, and movies. I have a collection of Portland and Oregon travel guide books and maps to help plan your adventures.
Whether it's an overnight stay or a month long sublet, you will find many amenities in one of the best neighborhoods in Portland.
My house is your house--you are welcome to share my home and take advantage of all the perks in the house.
Interaction with Guests
Our interactions will vary depending on my work schedule and travels. You might not see me for a couple days, or we could end up hanging out and having dinner together. I am really flexible and open to whatever interactions if I am around and not busy working.
The best part of the Alberta Arts district is the internationally recognized amazing food (it's a foodies paradise) and walkability of my neighborhood!
Yes--the number 75 & 72 bus are very close by! Just a block away. The 75 will take you to the max in the Hollywood district and you can make it downtown no problem in 25-30 minutes if you time it right.
Street or off street parking is available.
Other Things to Note
The bedroom is basically designed for sleeping and not much else. The bed is comfy and amazing, but you can't do somersaults in it! It's a small house. :)
I live in a quiet residential neighborhood, so mellow times after 11pm.
I would be happy to host a friendly and well-trained 4 legged dog traveler friend. There are many off leash dog parks in close vicinity to my house, including right across the street!
Your dog needs to be well behaved with adequate supervision--no jumping on furniture, digging in the yard...etc.
I am a light drinker, a beer or glass of wine or two here or there. If you like to get sloshed and come home drunk/wasted...this is not the air bnb house for you. I have had a couple air bnb guests with heavy drinking times and that is energy I prefer not to have in my personal space since we are sharing the house.
LGTBTQ friendly please.
Must like dogs and cats, or at least tolerate their presence.
No smoking on the premises.
It's a shoe free home...I am trying to maintain my hardwood floors as long as I can. I will provide slippers if you forgot to pack them. :)
I can't think of any other major rules. I hope you find my home a warm, cozy, and comforting space to return to from your days exploring the city.
The neighborhood is great and centrally located for everything we wanted to do. Debbie is gracious and accommodating. The room was as advertised. Excellent bed!
Couldn't recommend this place enough! It's clean, neat, and feels like home. As a new transplant to Portland, I feel so lucky to have had Debbie as my host for the first month in a new town. She made me feel so welcome and at ease and created a safe environment for me during a stressful time. Very easy to communicate with and accommodating. Thank you, Debbie!
Shout out to Shed and Tiny, her sweet cat and dog.
Debbie was very nice , room is as shown in the picture , nice first experience with abnb. Great Dinner recommendation, very helpful in my recent move to Portland .
Debbie was a lovely host. Tiny and Shed were super friendly and welcoming too! She has the most comfortable tempurpedic guest bed. House is super cute and a really quick drive or leisurely walk to Alberta. Thanks again Debbie!
Debbie was a welcoming and accommodating host. The space was cozy, comfortable and a short walk to the Alberta Arts district. Tiny and Shed, the resident pets, were excellent companions!
Debbie was a warm and welcoming host! We (including our two dogs) enjoyed a relaxing two days in her lovely cozy home while visiting Portland. The room was great (with a really big bed!) and we had access to everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Debbie was also great to chat with and recommended an excellent local restaurant. Our dogs had a great time with Tiny, our four legged host :). We would love to stay with Debbie when we are in Portland again.
Debbie is kind and warm hearted host.She gave me good advice about Portland.She has adorable dog and cat.They make me relax and happy.I've stayed her house cozy and happy with them.Thank you,Debbie :)
I am really excited to host guests from Airbnb! I travel extensively stateside, but haven't had much of a chance to travel internationally lately. I have been the recipient of many a kind stranger providing me hospitality during my world travels and I am looking forward to offering the same to others.
