About this listing
I will be out of town the following dates and you will have the place all to yourself:
Dear traveler...you can stay in your own private room in a cute little house in walking distance to Alberta Arts District hotspots (15 min walk to Alberta Street--about 9 blocks). Amenities include tempur-pedic king size bed (it really is a Tempur-pedic!), garden veggie abundance (when in season), farmer's markets, bicycles in all shapes and sizes (with helmets, locks and lights!), dog love, nearby parks/bike paths, wifi, flat screen tv/dvd/Apple TV/Netflix, friendly neighborhood bars, a farm to market restaurant and butcher shop, organic pizza joints, trendy shops, and a local roaster coffee shop.
There is off street parking in my driveway.
Conveniently located just 10 minutes from the PDX airport ($20 cab ride) and an easy 30-35 minute jaunt to downtown via the bus/max line. In addition to being walking distance to Alberta Arts district (15 min/9 blocks) 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 on 42nd Ave. are Old Salt Deli and Restaurant, NEPO42, Red Sauce pizza, Miss Zumstein's Bakery and Coffee Shop with locally roasted Extracto Coffee, Common Grounds Wellness Center for hot tubs and saunas these (about 2-10 min walks from the house). The Kennedy School is down the street for more hot tubs, local beer, food, and movies and one of the best organic grocers in the country, New Seasons Market, is just down the street (both 10 min. walks). 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. I am laid back and hope you take advantage of the house and neighborhood.
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 in my driveway.
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. :)
Also, FYI the pics were taken over 3 years ago so there have been layout changes in the living room so it's not exactly the same in the living room as it is in the photos.
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 at Meeker Technical School on the fenced grounds!
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.
