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 is as great as on pictures. The bed is huge and comfortable. She's very friendly!
Deb, my host fit the mold of the "west coast vibe". I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Brought up European, comfortable bed and down pillows are important and had all that in addition to a nice mid-century modern decor.
It was great staying with Debbie! I had to make a lightening trip to Portland and couldn't find a downtown hotel room. Her home is in an interesting neighborhood with perfect access to public transportation. The bed was comfortable, the wifi fast, the reading light good, and Debbie quietly welcoming and most helpful.
Debbie was a gracious host with a warm welcome. The description of her place and neighborhood was accurate, the bed marvelously comfortable, the home neat and tidy. I would stay there again. Thanks Debbie!
Had a great time staying at Debbie's home. It's small but comfy. The bed was huge and really comfortable! The room was clean and full of awesome books and records. There are two windows to open in the room for a nice breeze. The bikes were a huge plus allowing us to get around and check out the neighborhood and restaurants without spending any money on an uber. Her two pets tiny & shed were wonderful to be around. Very loving animals :) all in all we had a wonderful stay and Debbie treated us amazing. Thanks for the hospitality!
Debbie was out of town so I had the place to myself. Checking in and out were very easy. The home is as described but the cat is better in person. If I had a question Debbie was a quick text away. I will keep this listing in mind for future trips.
Spent four nights in Debbie's lovely little home with a friend and our two dogs. Debbie was out of town, so we didn't get to meet her, but she was great with communication before and during the stay. The house is small, but clean and pleasant, and it has a big, beautiful backyard with a garden, nice lounging chairs and a kiddie pool. It's a great place for you and your dog to hang out, if the weather is nice, as it was when we were there. The house is near Alberta Street, with a plethora of coffee shops, restaurants, stores and whatever else you might need. There's also a New Seasons grocery store nearby. Debbie has some bikes available for visitors to borrow, which was nice for trips in the neighborhood, although I had my car there as well. We also enjoyed having sweet Shed the elderly cat around, and Shed was totally unfazed by our two high-energy dogs. Overall great and very home-y place to stay.
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!
