Welcome to vintage Portland. This is an old house with old charm. and has been tastefully restored to retain all its original bungalow beauty. There is currently only one room available. It is fully furnished with a queen size bed. Enjoy the brilliantly tiled bathroom with generous shower head!

Also check out the Alberta Rose Theater for shows and events, just a few blocks away. The #70 bus line runs right in front of the house which takes you to the Rose Quarter, the #17 takes you downtown, as well as 2 other bus lines nearby. Also just a 15 minute drive to the airport!

- There is an old mountain bike that is free to use while your visiting, just be nice to it. It's great for getting around the neighborhood, maybe not that great for cross-town jaunts.
- Stocked kitchen. Feel free to make a meal using any of cookware, utensils, spices, oils, sugar, etc., that I have to offer. Coffee and tea are provided.
There aren't really any areas off limits except my upstairs bedroom. The basement has become a bit cluttered due to some remodeling upstairs. Apologies!
Interaction with Guests
I am usually present while guests are staying. I have a busy and varied work schedule as a business owner, especially during the spring and summer. I love getting to know travelers from near and far.
The Alberta district offers everything a great neighborhood should: cafes, restaurants, bars, boutiques, art and more. I'm happy to offer tips and advice and my own personal favorites as well.
Yes, 3 bus lines all very near my house. Airport 15 minute drive.

James has a nice house, in a great location. Just a short walk to get to Alberta and all that's going on there. He was helpful with advice on what to see and had no problem with us using kitchen and vegging in the living room. Also, top-notch shower.
James is a very nice guy.
He told me a lot of things, about neighborhood.
It helped me to find good restaurants and cafe.
The place is good for enjoy albert and the North East Portland.
James was very hospitable. He made his home very welcome and had everything we needed during our stay. All of the tips he had for places to eat and things to do were very helpful. The location was very convenient for what we had in store for time in Portland.
James' pad is in a good NE Portland location near the bars & restaurants of Alberta St. The place is comfortable and well maintained. Unfortunately there was only herbal tea provided, which felt quite stingy. We had no WiFi for the 3 nights of our stay and as James was overseas we had no means of resolving this.
This was my first experience with Air B&B... If my stay with James is any indication of how terrific these exchanges can be then I'm off to a great start! James' house is beautiful and clean and everything the pictures would lead to believe. It happens to be situated in a hopping fun part of town but one can also easily access all parts of Portland proper by public transit. James is a kind, welcoming and helpful host, easy to engage as well as respectful of giving the space I personally enjoy. We shared flowing conversation, he handed over books of interest regarding things to do around Portland and further illuminated different impressions I gathered in my wanderings of the city, and then I was off to do my thing. It was truly ideal... Thank you James.
James was really chill, kind and welcoming. His house is lovely and located really close to Alberta street hotspots. Everything was super smooth and we really enjoyed our stay.
James' house is in such a great location - near Alberta - and is so comfortable, we came back for a second visit. And once again, we had a very nice stay.

To say I'm fond of traveling, is to put it mildly, as I've had a wealth of chance encounters and spontaneous explorations to fill a lifetime, so as host I'm thrilled to get to return the favor, and provide guests and opportunity to explore a little piece of Portland.
I'm curious at heart, so if you would like to get to know me, please don't be shy. Don't worry, I won't be making myself apart of your itinerary. This is your trip....not mine.
Some things I like: All things design, horticulture, history, architecture, fine art, ceramics, food, cooking, philosophy, conversation, music, comedy, traveling, and most importantly....having fun.
