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 dresser, a closet, and bed. A queen sized bed! With the most comfortable memory foam mattress on earth. 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
My name is Nate. I am a preschool teacher. I love to read, cook, hike, and play games. My wonderful girlfriend Sarah is an aerialist. We are both fun loving, creative, easy going, understanding & welcoming people. we love showing people around, and having adventures. We look forward to your stay!
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.
Write a postcard to your best friend about how awesome this room is! Plus a "Take A Book, Leave A Book"! (It's hard to see, but there are *totally* roses right outside that window)
I loved staying at Nate's place in the yellow room! The bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in and the room itself is sunny, inviting and decorated with quirky and creative artwork.
Nate was a fantastic host who was very friendly and easy to talk to - he also had great recommendations for restaurants in the area! The house is located near Alberta Street and a big supermarket so great restaurants and shops are just a short walk away.
All the best Nate and I'd definitely love to stay here again next time I'm in Portland!
My husband and I loved Nate's place! Everything was clean and the decor was bright & warm and made us feel right at home. The bed in the yellow room was super comfortable and my husband appreciated the provided fan. I enjoyed the artwork in the home and random things: like the little nun in the bathroom & all of the birds in the yellow room. If we stayed longer we would have enjoyed the extensive book & boardgame collection. Nate's place is very close to a pizza place, a Walgreens & a grocery store among other things. It's also close to Alberta street which is nice. Some other bonuses: a washer & dryer is available, a garden & free WiFi. Also, Nate was super laid back about everything which was nice. Thanks Nate (& Hilary) for having us!!
The yellow room was located in a cozy neighborhood in a great part of Portland near The Kennedy School. Nate was incredibly friendly and welcoming. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
Excellent communication, clean space, well organized. Would recommend Nate's space to anyone.
While we didn't get to see much of Nate on our trip, we are so thankful he opened up his home for is this weekend. He was a friendly, helpful host. His home is clean, comfortable, fun, great location, and the coffee pot next to the bed is a very nice touch. If you're coming through Portland, stay at Nate's. Your trip will be exponentialy more fun.
My husband and I were very pleased with our stay with Nate in the Comfy Yellow Room. We felt very welcomed when we arrived. The whole house was very clean and nicely decorated. We basically wanted a place to sleep and shower as we were eating out while we visited our daughter. The bed was very comfortable. Nate was very prompt with communication and well organized. It was a very positive experience.
