Cozy Alberta Arts District Bungalow

House - Private room · NE Sumner St, Portland, OR 97211, United States

The Space

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.

  • This was my first Airbnb reservation, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Debbie was out of town, so I had her cute little house to myself for the night I was there. The king sized bed was really comfortable, the place was clean, she let me help myself to her food for breakfast, the neighborhood was very quiet and safe, and her cat was super friendly. It was an easy 15-20 min walk to a cool neighborhood with good restaurants and shops. Thanks!

  • Debbie was a lovely host to us for our quick trip to Portland for a local half marathon! The room in her home is very comfortable, and she is located very close to a popular off-leash dog area, which is great for travelers (like us) with four-legged friends. We will definitely stay again.

  • We had a lovely stay at Debbie's house. We usually like to stay *right* on Alberta, but since our regular spot was booked, this was a great alternative - and gave us a chance to get a little extra walking in. Debbie ended up having to go out of town so it was a big bonus, and an awesome deal, to get the whole place to ourselves! Oh, and her kitty is the sweetest - hi Shed!

  • Debbie's house is fantastic, and she is a lovely person and awesome host. (Tiny and Shed are pretty cool too!) Staying with Debbie for a month made my transition to Portland from the East Coast SO much easier than it would have been otherwise. Thank you!

  • I stayed with Debbie for two months while I got settled in Portland, and I feel lucky to have landed in her home. Debbie was a low-key housemate who was always easy to get along with, and Tiny the dog and Shed the cat were fun house companions. The location was great--a quiet, residential neighborhood that still had many shops and restaurants nearby. It was also close to the bus line that takes you right downtown, or to the MAX. I would definitely recommend staying with Debbie the next time you're in Portland!

  • This was my first airbnb experience, and I would rate it very good. Debbie has a cute place and I loved her mid-century furnishings and decor. Debbie is very laid back and we enjoyed playing with her adorable dog and cat, Tiny and Shed. Her place is very close to Alberta St. (15 min walk) and we had a wonderful meal at the Old Salt, a place around the corner and recomended by Debbie. If you are short on time and have a car, I would recommend driving and parking your car in the downtown/pearl district for the day and exploring on foot. Parking is pretty reasonable on weekends ($5/day). We had a great stay, just wish we had a few more days to explore Portland!

  • Staying with Debbie, Tiny, and Shed made for a lovely first Airbnb experience! We really just needed a place to sleep for the night so we couldn't enjoy too many of the amenities of the home or the arts district. But the house was so charming and comfortable. I definitely recommend the stay!

    October 2013
  • Debbie was a very enjoyabe host who made us feel at home in her place. We would recommend her for anyone looking to come home to a relaxed atmosphere after a long day out in the city.

    October 2013
  • Had a great time at Debbie and Shed's! Great location, comfy bed, and a neighbourhood that seems to be undergoing some interesting funkification... A definite recommendation, especially for cat-lovers!

    September 2013
  • Very nice house and a lovely cat. Quiet neighborhood and close to a lot of things.

About
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.
