Welcome! Thanks for checking out our site...!
We're offering a very unique, ONE-OF-A-KIND, craftsman built dwelling ideally located in the hip Mississippi Arts District, just minutes from everything Portland has to offer. Our spacious, lower level, one-bedroom has been thoroughly and thoughtfully designed and built to reflect both Old World, natural building practices and Modern, eco-sensibilities. This space is both aesthetically beautiful and comfortable, with numerous hand hewn details throughout.
From the lush, tree-lined street below, one ascends the stone steps to arrive at the mindfully appointed garden-level, private patio and entry. Upon arriving, one might notice the attention to detail in the EXQUISITE WORKMANSHIP and JAPANESE CARPENTRY, from the handmade doors and windows to the framing. Once inside, one is immediately welcomed by the warmth of the natural, clay walls, the wood beamed ceiling, and the sunny dinning nook. The kitchen boost professional, stainless appliances, granite counter tops and handmade cabinetry. The bathroom has reclaimed, cedar siding, and an artistic combination of tile, stone and glass. The living room is well appointed and cozy, with warm fir flooring, handmade furniture, a Danish-modern sleeper sofa, and a Norwegian gas stove/fireplace. The bedroom has a walk in closet, and a new queen mattress and frame with Organic duvet with goose down fill. Throughout the space, the walls are hung with original art showcasing local artist.
Nested just one block from trendy and mod Mississippi Street, one has ample and easy access to some of Portland's best shops, restaurants, bars and breweries, music venues, boutiques, coffee houses, and yoga studios. It's within a short walking distance to major bus lines and our neighborhood MAX train/lightrail station, with easy access to highways. Our street is also a city designated bike road. We are only minutes from other local hotspots like Alberta Arts District, Downtown and the Pearl. Getting around town from here couldn't be easier.

David was an incredibly gracious and accommodating host, as well as an all around awesome guy to spend some time bantering with! The attention to detail, the labor, and the thought that went into crafting this space are simply outstanding. From how the bed was made up to the way the bathroom was laid out, everything felt carefully considered and came together to make for a very calm and inviting atmosphere. This is a super unique place to enjoy and I'd stay again in a heartbeat!
David was super welcoming and the place was immaculate. It is wonderfully located near all the fun on Mississippi, and there is ample and easy parking. I would absolutely stay here again when I am visiting Portland.
This place is absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend it enough for a single or couple. Beautifully crafted, brilliantly stocked for all you may need, in a magical setting. Portland is such a cool place to visit, and when you do you will want to be in this area! David has some great recommendations for restaurants in the Mississippi/Williams area that you won't want to miss. Seriously, you will be lucky to book this place!! David is super sweet as well. Thanks so much!
This place is really cool! Definitely one of the most unique properties we have stayed at. It's furnished really nicely with great attention to detail. The close-by Mississippi Ave has lots to drink and eat. We really enjoyed our stay and David was a great host!
David's place is one of our favorite Airbnb stays yet. The handiwork in the apartment is perfection and it was spotless. Arrival/access to key was easy and convenient and David was really great at communicating and accommodating our last minute change in arrival time. We loved getting to know him when he stopped by. The space is totally private and quiet at night. Although the Mississippi restaurant strip is a short walk away, you might want a car or bike to get around the rest of Portland. We would totally stay again. Thank you David!
We had an excellent experience at David's place. The apartment was wonderfully designed, and David was a fantastic host. He was accommodating of our schedules, and made sure we had anything we needed ahead of time. There was also a very large and extensive book of recommendations he prepared for things to do in the neighborhood and in Portland generally, which were a tremendous help for navigating the city.
The apartment itself was elegant in its design, and due to its Japanese architecture, probably one of the more unique spaces available to stay in Portland. The quality of the apartment certainly enhanced our experience.
Finally, the location of the apartment was ideal, just a few minutes walk away from a very lively commercial district, and centrally located enough to be able to access many parts of the city quickly. I will recommend staying at David's place to anyone travelling through Portland in the future.

About the Host, David
Native of the Pacific Northwest, I'm a Design/Builder, specializing in Japanese Traditional Carpentry and Old World natural building. I'm also licensed in 'Chado' the Japanese way of tea, which is my main stem of study within Japanese architecture. This recently completed unit is not a tea house but is an attempt to mix Japanese and a Western aesthetic through a common natural link. With the hope of sharing the beauty of Japanese woodworking to a wider range of people. I hope you enjoy!
