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'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.
Debbie was SO friendly and accommodating. After having to only give her about a 48 hour request, she responded promptly and even helped me get settled while she was still gone and at work. Once I met Debbie, she was very friendly and invited me to have tea and make myself at home. Her dog and cat were very friendly and fun to hang out with during my stay of one night. Her location is perfectly within walking distance of a couple nice cafes, and within very short driving distance to the main downtown areas!
Had a lovely one-night stay at Debbie's. It was a cozy house and she was incredibly kind. She made us feel very comfortable! We missed our dog during our trip, so having Tiny there was an added bonus. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Portland!
Debbie was a warm and welcoming host. She was always available for questions and suggestions. Our room was comfy and full of great books! Her dog, Tiny and cat, Shed were both friendly and sweet. We had hoped to ride the bikes in the garage but ran out of time! Overall would stay there again. Thanks for being a great host!
I had a nice stay with Debbie, Shed and Tiny. I love animals and hers made me feel right at home. Debbie had friends over early in the evening but they were very quiet and offered me great tips on where to eat in the neighborhood. Debbie's house is very easy to get to by public transportation and is just a $20 cab ride from the airport. Thanks, Debbie!
Debbie home was perfect for us. We needed a place to stay for the weekend that was close to the airport, Portland downtown core and to the waterfalls. We had a jam packed itinerary and Debbie home made the perfect place for us to fit everything in. The bed was incredibly comfortable as well. Oh and tiny (sweet dog) ... We miss you already.
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 Aug 2nd-9th so you will have the place all to yourself!
