Loved my stay at this adorable Craftsman home. Michelle has lovingly cared for this beautiful home. It is spotlessly clean and kept up. Michelle is a gracious considerate host and went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable and happy. Nice walkable neighborhood with restaurants and cafes not far away. Would stay here again!

About the Host, Michelle
Hello! I am a 45 year old social worker who has lived in Portland since 1999 except for a stint in Alaska last. I have also hosted visitors from the US and internationally, over the last several years, outside of air bnb. I have been grateful to travel to various places, including most states in the US, the Middle East, Australia, Europe, Central and South America, Thailand, and Romania, offering social work services during some of the travels and on one occasion travel writing for Lonely Planet.
I am busy with work and can provide ideas for visitors in their travels, but due to work schedule am hoping to host guests who are independent. I seek people who are respectful of the house and expect the same in return.
