About This Listing
This newly renovated basement apartment is located in a classic 1923 home 2 blocks from the exciting Alberta Arts District. You have your own private entrance at the side of the house and there is a second door which leads you into the basement apartment. The space is designed to be contemporary in style and yet peaceful in ambience, with warm colors and a mix of carpet and hardwood throughout. With a large fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living room with cable television and DVD player, uniquely designed bathroom and an extremely cozy bedroom, this apartment will appeal to many who are looking for the perfect vacation rental.
The Alberta neighborhood is packed with restaurants, bars, cafes, bakeries and retail shops. There is the Alberta Rose Theater that has great shows and performances and of course plenty of galleries showing great local art work. During the summer months, the largest street fair in Portland takes place every Last Thursday which is an event not to be missed. However a 30 second walk from my house takes you to a small neighborhood corner that has Pok Pok Noi and Grain and Gristle, two of the best reviewed restaurants in Portland. There is also a coffee shop and two bars located there. There are also plenty of parks in the area, four of which are within walking or cycling distance.
If you need to stock up on groceries there is 'Whole Foods' grocery store which is located at the bottom of the hill from me and there is also the local favorite 'New Seasons' and 'Safeway', both of which are five minutes away. We also have our own Farmers Market every Sunday between 9am and 2pm from March through October and it's located 8 blocks away.
If you are driving, there is plenty of parking on Going which is the cross street 20 feet from my house. However my house is also conveniently located right on the bus line with the bus stop being right across the street. This line takes you straight to downtown without having to change buses in less then 30 minutes. Need a Zip car? There is a stop right off Alberta two blocks away.
I am a very accommodating and easy going host who is more than happy to answer your questions and give you insight into all the fun activities and sights that Portland has to offer. I look forward to welcoming you to my home. Whether you are here for an active holiday or a peaceful getaway, I am sure my apartment will be the perfect home away from home.
There is no smoking inside the house however you are welcome to smoke outside. Unfortunately we do not allow any pets.
Wonderful place to stay. I would 100 percent recommend this listing, especially if new to Portland. Walkable to so many good spots, and the apartment was beautiful and clean.
Aysha is an excellent host and the apartment is second to none! It is beautifully decorated, well-equipped, and spotlessly clean. We wanted to just move in! The neighborhood is lots of fun with great dining options in walking distance. We will definitely be staying again when we are able to return to Portland.
Aysha was very friendly and provided us with everything that we needed. She made sure that we had everything that we needed upon arrival and made the apartment feel like actual home. Being that this was the first time that my girlfriend and I used Airbnb, Aysha and her apartment was the perfect getaway from home. The neighborhood was quiet, but was surrounded by a lot of fun things to do. Thank you so much Aysha!
I have traveled all over Europe and the U tied States using airbnb and this apartment was the nicest place I've seen to date. It's private and cozy. Perfectly clean. Spacious. The pictures don't do it justice. I could have easily lived in this place for months. Kitchen had everything you'd need. Washer and dryer is right outside the door. Bed was so comfortable that it was hard to get out of it. lol!!! It's about two blocks from the cutest street in Portland, Alberta. Best restaurants (you must eat at Tim Shed), bars, local art and shops. Host was gracious and friendly. I recommend this place highly.
We absolutely LOVED this apartment! Aysha was an excellent and very welcoming host! The apartment was spotless and stunning. The location was perfect as well, just as described. We walked to Alberta St. for coffee and dinner. We were only here for a couple of days and we feel like we could've stayed a whole week! We can't wait to come back!

About the Host, Aysha
I first came to Portland thinking I would only stay for a few months. 20 years later I am still here and loving every minute of it. It's a great city that I have no doubt you will also fall in love with.
