About this listing
A cozy room in a lovely house in the best part of NE Portland? Filled with books, tea, and nice people? What more could you *possibly* want?
This great private room is located within a quiet home on a residential street. I live half a block from the lovely Kennedy School, home to restaurants, bars, a movie theater, and outdoor soaking pool. Also, just a half block away, is a New Seasons, a wonderful local place to buy all the groceries you need. It even has a deli. Just a short walk will put you on Alberta, with restaurants (breakfast, lunch, & dinner), bars, co-op, coffee & tea, food carts, and art galleries. There are several lovely parks within walking distance that will provide you with places to jog or relax.
My home is accessible by 4 bus lines: seventy, seventy-two, seventy-five, & seventeen (which will easily get you to downtown, North Portland, and South East). I also live very close to the airport, and it is quite easy to make that trip with public transport. There is ample and easy on-street parking, as well as a safe place to put your bikes.
Within the house you'll also have access to a full kitchen, bathroom with tub and shower, & living room with a dining table. The house itself is filled with art, musical instruments, books, games, & other rad stuff. I also have a wonderful backyard with a deck, fire pit, many garden boxes filled with seasonal veggies, & fruit trees/plants (grapes, cherries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, marionberries).
Your rented room is furnished with a reading chair, a closet, and an actual bed. A full sized bed! You are also welcome to use the HIGH SPEED INTERNET and laundry (I have a clothesline for when the weather is nice). Your room also comes with its own coffee maker. There's even a drum set or two in the basement. :D

Feeling at home is very important. So allow me to tell you about a few of the house rules:
-Dishes are to be cleaned promptly
-If you make a mess, clean up after yourself
-Mellow after 10pm
-Doors locked at night
-Lights off when not in use
-Be nice & have fun
-No drugs in the house
-Sorry, but my space does not accommodate children or pets.
