Interaction with Guests
We love greeting guests, helping with directions and getting around town. Since we live on the floor above and share the kitchen, we often run into guests in the common areas and love exchanging tips and travel insights.
Sometimes though our schedules don't align and we miss our housemates altogether.
Note that you might run into guests staying in another private room on the same floor.
Special attention to detail has been paid so you can thrive in our cozy home when we are unavailable in person, but always accessible by phone or email.
Our neighborhood is diverse and friendly with quaint vintage shops, quirky bars and excellent restaurants. It is conveniently located near I-5 and public transport.
Just 5 miles north of Downtown and nestled in the historic Kenton community close to shops and dining, we are within easy walking distance to public transit (Yellow Max line and several buses) and a quick 10 minute car ride downtown with great N/S-bound freeway access.
We are about 25-35 minutes away from downtown by bus or Yellow Max train line. Both are within six blocks of the house with a bus stop less than a block away.
Bus: 4 and 75 are less than a block away and the Yellow Max line is only 6 blocks from the house. All will take you downtown in about 25-35 minutes.
Car: Parking is free and easy curbside at the house.
We are in the Car2Go zone and several Zipcars are in the neighborhood making shared transportation readily available.
Airport: From the airport, take a taxi for $20-30 and spend 20 minutes or take the Red Max train from the airport to the Rose Quarter and change to the Yellow Max train to Kenton Station then walk to the house. It usually takes 1-1.5 hours and costs $2.50.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights on our trip through the PNW. It was my first Airbnb experience and it was a good one! They sent me a message a few days prior to my stay with detailed directions and information regarding our stay. Our flight landed late on Friday night and we didn't stroll in until about 11 pm but they were still up and greeted us. We were out and about exploring the city most of the time but ran into them a few times, they seemed really nice. They have a dog that was really friendly but they were still training her so we couldn't play with her as much as we wanted to. The room was clean upon arrival. They had another guest in their other room so we shared a bathroom with him. Their bathroom was fully stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and body wash which was nice if you forget to pack that stuff. Their house is located about 10 minutes outside of the downtown area, which I didn't mind since we rented a car. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend them completely to other travelers!
I have now stayed three times in this lovely home with gracious hostesses. They make it very easy for me to make myself at home and enjoy my stay. I love the quiet neighborhood with stores, restaurants, and transportation in easy walking distance.
Maylene and Charity's house was wonderful. It's clean and well organized. Detailed information was provided, so we knew exactly what to expect when we arrived. We got a chance to talk to Charity, very friendly and personable. Overall, we had a great experience and we enjoyed our stay. Thanks!
The PDX pitstop was amazing! Immaculately clean and cozy. Big plus is the house is very close to downtown and the other districts of Portland. Maylene and Charity provide a lot of privacy, which was a great way to relax. I would happily stay with then again. I have nothing negative to say about the place- only great things.
Great value, lovely little house. Hosts are helpful but don't intrude. Puppy is extremely cute. I stayed a total of 8 days and was quite comfortable the whole time. Kenton neighborhood is great - I enjoyed Po'shines cafe in particular. I was also able to get there from the airport without driving on a freeway (I used gps). I used the max train, a 10 minute walk, numerous times as well. All in all a great stay.
This is my first time staying in Portland, their room is sweet and nice. It's really comfortable to stay there. Also they have a awesome dog and a chill cat:)
The most beautiful home in it's every detail. Perfect accommodations, and incredibly comfortable bed. Slept like a baby! Thank you :)

We are high school sweethearts who met in Japan over 20 years ago. Many areas of our home are strongly influenced by our time there. We share a common passion for travel and haven't seen nearly enough of the world yet! One day we'd like to compete and WIN on The Amazing Race.
Small business owners and entrepreneurial folk, we work from home so we're available for questions and referrals.
In our free time you'll find us planning our next big adventure, binging on YouTube videos, stretched out on a yoga mat, or curled up with a good book.
