Considered one of the best neighborhoods in Portland, Nob Hill is an eclectic mix of charming older homes blended with newer construction. The trendy 23rd Ave. shopping district with it's unique shops and great restaurants is within walking distance. Great for walking and riding public transportation. We are close to central downtown Portland and adjacent to the Pearl District.
You will be across from the public tennis courts and Wallace Park and just blocks from access to Forest Park trails. The well known Washington Park Rose Test Gardens, Japanese Garden and Chinese Gardens are all very near by.
Parking is included in front of the cottage if you have a car but probably won't need one. There is easy access to the freeways and this location is very central to the Portland metro area.
You will find it easy for walking with great access to public transportation.
The Pearl District is close by and the streetcar rides through the neighborhood into downtown or across the river to the Moda Center and LLoyd Center districts. The bus stop is also blocks form here. T
Zipcar and Car2Go have cars available close by. There are several bike rental shops and recommended bike lane streets in the neighborhood.
Most guests take a taxi or the MAX train and transfer to bus #77 when coming in form the airport.

Be respectful of my neighbors.
Alleyn was a great host! We had everything we needed and check-in and check-out was very smooth. The apartment felt spacious and very cute and cozy. The neighborhood was very peaceful but also located within walking distance of shops and great restaurants.
Alleyn made our stay effortless and comfortable! Would stay again and again!
Such a lovely little house! We were ready to move in forever! So quiet and private, but so close to our favorite neighborhood. Will definitely stay here next time we're in town!
Alleyn made us feel so welcome and gave us the low down on the cottage and the neighborhood, she was great. The little cottage was perfect for us and is perfectly situated for exploring Portland. The bed is very comfortable too. We had everything we needed and more - I so enjoyed one quiet morning watching hummingbirds and raccoons in the garden while my other half went for a run. I was sorry to leave without being able to say goodbye and thank you to Alleyn for this great stay in person.
My parents stayed at Alleyn's for the second time and loved it. Great communication, easy access and super hospitable service, thanks Alleyn!
Greeting us and communicating with us when we were late getting there. Neighborhood was quiet, parking available. Generally very comfortable bed and surroundings.
This was my in-laws second stay with Alleyn. They had a wonderful experience and we're happy to find a few additions, not the least of which was a second air conditioner, which was without a doubt necessary with the crazy heat Portland has been having. They will definitely be back!

About the Host, Alleyn
I live in the NW district close to the center of town because it is easily accessible from almost anywhere in Portland. About 20 minutes from the airport. My great grandparents built homes in this neighborhood when it was first being developed and I have always loved this section of town. I moved to my present home in the Nob Hill district about 14 years ago.
I was an interior designer for many years and I also teach watercolor at the local community center.
I can't live without the ocean and the mountains each an hour and a half drive from here. I love the beautiful Columbia Gorge (1/2 hour) and hiking in Forest Park (minutes away).
I enjoy people from all walks of life and love to travel when given the chance.
