About This Listing
Living room part of the shared "great room." Comfortable place to have coffee, watch tv, or listen to music before bed.
Private room in friendly Arbor Lodge neighborhood across from Arbor Lodge Park. Light, quiet, clean. Private room has full bath with tub/shower, queen bed, and wifi internet access. My 7 yr-old duplex includes shared space (with me) of kitchen, laundry, and half bath on main. I'm on a corner between two parks, 1 block to bus, 6 blocks to light rail and New Seasons whole foods store and neighborhood "hangout." I'm also on a "bike boulevard" with ez access to downtown by bike, rail, bus or car. I-5, University of Portland, and Vancouver, WA also within two miles. Two "secret" indoor-outdoor cats live here too, but you probably won't see them, and they don't use a litter box, so you won't smell them either!
This is a great venue for creative types who want peace and tranquility for regrouping in between activities while visiting Portland. Have coffee in my wonderful main floor "great room" with lots of morning light and a park view...or sleep late in your private upstairs room (guests have commented on how quiet it is). I can also recommend nearby restaurants for breakfast/lunch/dinner, and can provide transportation from the airport, which is only ten minutes away. Share my idyllic setting which I enjoy in this unique neighborhood...the perfect combination of "hip" and "home!"
PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR on this listing, AND
also for my other (email hidden)/rooms/695704. Since I rent the room, but also the "whole house", the calendar can be inaccurate if you only check one calendar. I don't want to make a mistake!!
Big shared kitchen, if you wish to use it! Host provides coffee and bagels, as the morning sun fills the whole main floor (if no sun, then light...for sure, light...hey, it IS Portland)!
Sandi is the best host ever, and her house is not only very clean and welcoming, but stylish and quite as well. It is all I needed. Thank you Sandi, I hope to come back soon.
I can't imagine a better Airbnb experience than my recent stay with Sandi at "Between 'hip and home' (& park!)." Sandi is a wonderful, caring host and I quickly felt welcome and comfortable in her home. Clean and full of light, her home is located in a pretty, quiet and safe neighborhood, across the street from a lovely community park. It's near public transportation and only a short drive into the city center. Parking is readily available on her street. I was happy with my pretty, comfortable bedroom and private bathroom. I especially enjoyed talking with Sandi each morning over coffee and a light healthy breakfast, in her outdoor patio area near the park. She has lived in Portland for many years and is a great resource for visitors. I look forward to seeing Sandi and staying with her again on future trips to Portland.
It's alway a pleasure to stay at Sandi's place. It's like my home away from home ;-) Love the the location and the amenities and enjoy Sandi!
Sandi was a wonderful host and her house is lovely! She was so thoughtful and caring! Thank you!!
Sandi was the consummate host. She was friendly but gave us all the privacy we wanted/needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning coffee sessions and all the information she imparted about Portland. The location in North Portland is close to St. John's Bridge area and an easy drive to downtown. The park provided the perfect place to exercise and meet other Portlandites.
Sandi was a wonderful host and the room in which we stayed at her place was perfect for my husband and me. It was close enough to walk to the bus, which took us to the city in minutes, and not too far from the train station which also took us to the city. Her neighborhood is quiet and safe, and our room was very clean and cozy. Further, Sandi provided breakfast every morning and good conversation, both of which we appreciated! I would highly recommend staying here; it's close to the city but far enough away that it is quiet. Plus, Sandi is a great host! Loved her place!
Sandi has a lovely house in a convenient and nice neighborhood. I always feel welcome and comfortable staying at her place. Lovely room with a private bath, comfy bed, easy access to the kitchen if you need it. Sandi is friendly and always makes me feel welcome!

About the Host, Sandi
Hi, I'm excited about being an AirBNB host! I like providing a comfortable respite from the road, and I definitely enjoy meeting people from all over. I live across from a beautiful neighborhood park that has tennis courts just steps away, and provides a serene setting, yet is close to all the great activities in neighborhoods downtown, in Mississippi, Alberta Arts, and Piedmont, to name a few. The house is half of a duplex. It is a 1500sf unit with 3 bedrms, 2.5 baths, hardwood floors in the "great room" which is one big room including fully loaded kitchen, living room, and dining room. People love the openness of the main floor. French doors to small front yard provide an open, friendly area for morning coffee or regrouping over wine in the evening. Other amenities include laundry room, full service refrigerator, and ample street parking. Conveniently located just a half block to bus, 6 blocks to light rail, I-5, and New Seasons whole foods store, 10 minutes to downtown (unless you want to take the bike trail, which makes it more like 20 minutes).
I am a writer and singer, and I have a lot in common with artistic types, but love to get to know all types of people. I'm definitely open and somewhat savvy about the world, though haven't traveled much (that's about to change, thanks to AirBNB!). Come enjoy a weekend, a week, or a month in the hidden Arbor Lodge neighborhood. I live here because it's close to everything, and yet feels like I'm in the country. A second park is only a block away, and the University of Portland and Adidas campus are just a few blocks away, along the bluffs overlooking downtown . I can help you get to know our completely amazing jewel of a city! My life mission is to "make a difference." This is my hosting style too. Welcome.
