About me: I'm an outgoing, friendly, upbeat, active, (golf/tennis/bicycling /swimming/design consultant), 50's professional female. I look forward to hosting those who want to experience this beautiful city of ours! Coming to Portland to settle down, visit family & friends or maybe on work-related assignments. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life. I am also interested in hearing pieces of your journey as it relates to Culture/Cuisine/Successes and Challenges in life. I relate well with all ages. Listening to & hearing stories from others' experience is a wonderful way of connecting and one of the best ways of learning, growing and enriching our paths My home is open to those visiting Portland for longer month long stay and possibly shorter stays.

Just an FYI: My home is going on the real estate market! At this time, there are projects being worked on. Yet, still am accepting reservations for rooms that are unaffected by the updates. Please note: Once listed, the house will be shown to interested parties. Viewing appointments will be set with guests needs in mind, as much as possible. These appointments may last for up to 30-minutes, typically scheduled in the mid-afternoon. A Broker will always accompany a buyer through the house and while viewing any Occupied bedroom/bath. I hope this does not discourage you from inquiring about Stay. Please let me know of any concerns. I will do my best to make your stay as enjoyable and as pleasant as possible. Thank you.
