This is a bright, private room in a peaceful owner-occupied home.
There is direct access to a lush private garden with a hot tub for soaking your cares away.
The room has a queen bed and small Flat screen TV with basic cable, so you can watch news and find out about local events happening during your stay or simply channel surf before going to bed.
The bathroom is shared (with owner),and has an awesome shower! Other common areas shared are the Kitchen, Living room and a Breakfast nook.
Restaurants, food carts and local breweries abound here, so you'll want to plan on exploring at least some of them, but for those that want to budget or simply enjoy a quiet evening in, there is a well stocked kitchen, and of course access to a BBQ, located in the private garden, under a covered patio for year round grilling! Indulge your culinary skills with our ample access to some of the best locally grown produce anywhere!
Located in the Rose City Park neighborhood within walking distance to a lovely park adjacent to the Rose City golf course-a public course offering year round play-the second oldest golf course in Portland!
It's a short walk for easy access to public transportation for both the Trimet bus and Max train lines. Driving? Its a quick 10 minute drive to the downtown area for shopping, sightseeing or business appointments. Great shopping is even closer in the Lloyd Center Mall!
The neighborhood is very diverse and wide! All are welcome!
I really have very few rules.
Mi casa es su casa. Treat my home as you would expect me to treat yours.
1. Smoking out doors only and please dispose of the butts in canisters provided on the porch located outside the exterior room door.
2. Obviously, no illegal drugs of any kind are permitted.
3. Please never leave any lighted candle unattended.
4. Unplug all small appliances when not in use, (ie: hair dryers, curling irons, clothes iron, coffee pot, toaster, etc. both for safety and energy consumption).
5. Please adhere to Portland's ideology of recycling as much as possible. We believe in "Green" here.
6. Please lock up and secure the place when out exploring and enjoying our awesome city!
My girlfriend and I had a relaxing time here. Our host was very accommodating and helpful. We certainly would stay here again.
Kathleen is an amazing host! The room is great, too -- very comfortable bed, very quiet, and the black curtains are wonderful if you want to sleep in and not be awoken by the sunshine. Watson is a sweet bundle of doggie energy. It is a bit of a walk from the MAX station (about a quarter of a mile), so be prepared. It's a mostly flat walk, though it was raining when I arrived and I was happy I had an umbrella with me. Though, Kathleen gave me a ride to the MAX station when I left, which was unexpected and generous! I loved the extra touches of having glasses and a fresh bottle of water in the room, and juices in the fridge. I will definitely stay with her again -- I loved her and the room!
Kathleen's beautiful home was the first stop on our Portland trip though unfortunately our flight was delayed and we ended up being stranded in Las Vegas. Kathleen was amazing and a great communicator throughout the entire experience. She was the silver lining to an otherwise awful experience. Unfortunately we never made it to her home, but based simply on our interactions with her, we would definitely recommend a stay with her highly!
Loved the cozy home and comfortable queen bed, nice patio and hot tub access from this room. We were warmly welcomed and surprised with all the nice extra touches.
Kathleen was a great host, good at quick communication and coordination. Flexible and responsive. Beautiful dog who we wouldn't have known was there until she told us.
Free and easy parking, quick access to I-84 for downtown or airport access. This was our first Airbnb and we had a great time. We look forward to traveling this way again soon.
We would stay here again when we travel back to Portland!
We had a wonderful stay at Kathleen's lovely home. She was so welcoming, making us feel at home with little treats such as chocolates on the pillow, breakfast foods all laid out and even a Starbucks gift card! Such a treat! Her home had beautiful details and the garden with hot tub was a little oasis after a day at the beach, exploring Portland or hiking. We absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend. Also her dog is so sweet, he will become your new best friend.
Chuck and I loved our 3 night stay in Kathleen's little slice of heaven! Kathleen is charming, thoughtful and welcoming, and Watson is adorable and very well behaved.
The shared bathroom is clean (we never had to wait to use it) and the bed is very comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet, with plenty of free street parking. Kathleen gave us some great tips for nearby cafes, and Rose City was a perfect home base for exploring Portland.
We were out all day, but our conversations with Kathleen in the mornings and evenings were a pleasure. One evening after a long bike ride, we stepped into the backyard and it was as if we had been transported to a tiny tropical paradise. The tiki torches and outdoor fireplace were glowing, creating absolutely gorgeous setting for our soak in the hot tub.
Kathleen was the best host possible! Everything was clean, the room was lovely, the hot tub was fantastic and her dog Watson was the most adorable lovable little dude ever. Portland was a dream and staying with Kathleen made us feel like we were home and comfortable. Couldn't be more grateful to have found her!

Hey there Travelers!
I'm fun-loving, very social and love meeting new people. I embrace diversity and value people's differences as much as I enjoy sharing common interests with them.
I am fascinated with other cultures and traditions and always seek ways to broaden my world. I figured opening my home to travelers would be a fine way to nurture that goal.
I love to garden, cook, read and I am an aspiring writer. I love art in every form. My music interests include almost every genre. Speaking of art, I'm something of an artist at putting my feet up in my garden with a glass of wine at the end of a hard day's work and you are welcome to join when you're here!
I wish I could travel more, but lead a very busy life helping manage a local restaurant. A busy fine dining/ live music venue featuring fantastic local musicians.
Being in the restaurant/bar industry allows me to appreciate people from all walks of life. Everyone has a story. I look forward to hearing yours if you're in a sharing mood.
No pressure! :)
I love animals as much as I love people. My beloved Boxer, Mugsy died at the ripe old age of ten. He went deaf in his last years, but since I have a background in special education, working with deaf and hard of hearing children, I had the foresight to teach him sign language as a puppy, so we didn't have any trouble communicating in his last years! It took me a long time to grieve for him. My latest Boxer is now 2 years old. He is a handsome, playful, very joyful companion and is also learning to understand sign language. Come meet Watson!
Being a Boxer owner might tell you a little about me. Boxers are smart, loyal, full of energy, fun loving, and maintain their playful "puppy-like" attitude their whole life! They can also be rather stubborn and determined at times! People who choose the breed appreciate those qualities, most likely because they themselves exhibit the same traits! :)
I'm humbled when friends have described me with these traits and surely aspire to live my life as large and loving as a boxer!
I look forward to hosting you during your stay here in beautiful, Portland, Oregon! Welcome!
