The Space

Renting a great, comfortable guest room in our 2-story, 2-bedroom,1-bath apartment located in Northwest Portland. This 1920's courtyard building is centrally located, just 2 blocks from 2 bus lines, and the streetcar.

Conveniently located just half a block off of NW 23rd, known for great shopping, delicious food and great bars. The apartment itself is extremely quiet, other than the occasional "city-noise" (dog barks, car horns and distant trains).

We're just a short streetcar ride away (or walk, depending on the season) from Powell's Books, the Brewery Blocks, Pioneer Square and VooDoo Doughnuts. The location is also great for reading a book in Wallace Park, going for a run in Forest Park, tree-gazing at Hoyt Arboretum or perhaps a trip to the beach at Sauvie Island.

The apartment has wi-fi, basic cable, and kitchen-use. The private bedroom has a very comfortable convertible twin-to-king bed. It is also a pet-free and smoke-free apartment (smoking allowed outside in courtyard). If you're traveling with a car, our neighborhood has free on-street parking.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Jen is a wonderful, accommodating hostess with a comfortable home in a prime location (Sam was traveling during our stay). Everything about the room, the amenities, and the neighborhood were exactly as my boyfriend and I expected. The apartment is steps from great restaurants and brewpubs, and the street parking was very easy to navigate. We felt that we had a lot of privacy and freedom to come and go as we wanted, and Jen was always happy to give us suggestions about local spots. Highly recommended.

  • Jen and Sam were great hosts! The location was great, and they were very helpful in offering advice for things to do around the city. Everything was as expected and we were very comfortable here. We'd stay with them again if we came back to Portland.

  • Great experience with Sam and Jen, very welcoming and were flexible with my late arrival check-in. They know the in-outs of Portland and offer great advice were to go and where to eat. Would refer to friends.

  • Jen and Sam are my neighbors who live in the same building. Since I already had my own Airbnb guests scheduled for the time when my sister decided to come and visit, I decided to put her up and Sam and Jen's place. She said they were very nice hosts. The apartment is cozy, clean, and full of light.

  • Came to Portland for the first time with an old friend from college. Jen and Sam were extremely welcoming and made the stay very comfortable. Their place is in a great location and they were full of tips and suggestions, we even spent one day with Sam walking around Portland and going to a concert together. Had a great stay and would love to go back and stay there again!

  • Jen and Sam were the best hosts anyone could ask for. I was traveling alone, but they made me feel at home and welcome. Their recommendations were spot on and truly felt like I belonged and that I lived there.

    The house was close to pretty much everything on the NW side of Portland, so it was a great spot to make home base.

    If you are staying in PDX, make sure it's with these folks.

We are a couple of 30-somethings with an appreciation for the finer things in life. We have many different interests - Sam cooks, Jen bakes. Sam writes, Jen reads. Sam gardens, Jen crafts. We both enjoy traveling and have done quite a bit. Sam is a native-Oregonian, Jen is an east-coast transfer. In short, we are extremely easy-going people who simply want our guests to enjoy their time in a city we both love and adore.
