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. 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.
Debbie was an accommodating host and was excellent at communicating everything we needed to know about the neighborhood. The bed was super comfy and the two windows in the bedroom gave the room plenty of fresh air.
We had a lovely stay at Debbie's house. It is a short walk from the charming NE Alberta St with its art shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants and there are nice places to get coffee, food etc just round the corner too. There is and enormous and very comfortable bed which makes a real difference if recovering from jet lag. Debbie is a very friendly host, easy to talk to and get along with, and her dog Tiny and cat Shed are an added bonus. Highly recommended.
Debbie was a perfect host with a perfect house. She was incredibly responsive which allowed us to have a smooth late night arrival into a new city & her beautiful comfy little house had everything we needed & more. The location was excellent - we could hardly leave the area- and the late night strolls were magical. We are already missing the place (&Shed) & will hopefully return on our next visit to Portland. What a wonderful airbnb experience.
Debbie was a friendly and welcoming host. The central location was great for exploring the different parts of the city. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet. There is a nice backyard area for chilling out after a day of exploration.
This is the perfect place for an animal lover. Tiny the ginormous dog is super friendly, and I managed to get a couple of cuddles with the cat as well. You do need to be prepared for all things that come with sharing your space with pets.
Debbie was a friendly and helpful host and her home is in a fantastic location. She had helpful tips for where to eat and drink.
Debbie's place was welcoming and warm. Her dog Tiny is sweet and playful. Loved staying here. The bed is huge and super comfy. My fiancé and I passed out after minutes of laying down. We loved the experience and Debbie is sweet and welcoming.
About the Host, 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.
I will be gone Sept. 9-14th so you will have the place all to yourself!
