The space

This clean, adorable basement studio apartment is situated in the hip Woodlawn neighborhood of NE Portland in a lovely 1915 bungalow. The apartment is completely private and the entrance is directly off of the sidewalk so you can easily roll your bags right in and there is plenty of free street parking. While not endowed with high ceilings, it's definitely high on charm!
It has a queen bed with a heavenly heated mattress pad, a comfortable Innerspring futon, fully stocked kitchen with fridge and freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and grinder, a stove, oven,etc).

The private bathroom features a shower with a nubby river rock-tile floor, laundry, a silent heat panel, hair dryer, a shaving mirror and a very large wall mirror.

The luxurious electric fireplace has an adjustable thermostat for those fall and winter nights where you'd like to snuggle in front of the 'fire' with a hot beverage. The tv is set up with an HDMI cable to plug right into your laptop and the wifi is password protected. And don't forget, there is a big park just a block from your door for your morning jog or an impromptu picnic, weather permitting. Every summer they host different monthly events. The apartment is very private with your own entrance and some closet storage for your items as well as bike storage beneath the stairs.

If you are traveling without a car, there are nearby Zipcar locations, Car2go available, or you can sign up with Getaround.
For two wheeled options: Everybody Bike Rentals, Upcycles, and Ebikes, a place to rent electric bikes!
Also the busline is just two blocks south of the house and the MAX line is not far. Check out Trimet website for scheduling.

Coming in from the airport? The Woodlawn District is 10 minutes away from PDX airport and 5 from the freeway. Also, getting to downtown is an easy 15 minute drive.

It's within a 5 minute walk from the heart of Woodlawn which has some fantastic spots to shop, drink, dance, and dine:
-Firehouse Restaurant, somewhat romantic with good service
-Woodlawn Coffee House, for plenty of people watching
-Breakside Brewery, to grab a bite and catch up on the game

And definitely check out the unique McMennamins Kennedy School for a beer, pizza and a movie. They are in the Concordia neighborhood, adjacent to Woodlawn.

The infamous Alberta Arts District is just 5 (driving) minutes or 15 walking minutes south. It's fantastically entertaining on the 'Last Thursday (of the month's) Art Walk' with anything from fire dancers and stilt walkers to live DJs and dancin' in the street! It's got some cute boutiques, bars, bakeries and an unusually large number of Thai restaurants for one street. Vegans can enjoy the Bye and Bye for dinner and drinks or the Vita Cafe which is great for breakfast. Alberta Street also features the crazy popular Salt & Straw Ice Cream powerful scoop does the trick! Nonetheless, I am always happy to make suggestions as I do have plenty of opinions;)

And if you'd like to do some cooking, the neighborhood P's & Q's Market carries some groceries and there are 2 New Season grocery stores just minutes away as well as Safeway, Fred Meyers (Krogers) and the Alberta Street Co-op. All of these are easily accessible by bus as, again, the stop is just 2 blocks away.

I love music, dancing, gardening, and eating yummy meals with friends....maybe not at the same time though. My sense of humor is slightly warped but I do enjoy making people laugh.
I, too love to travel and have enjoyed being a tidy, respectful guest in Rome, Paris, Halifax, Vancouver, B.C., Oaxaca, Ghana, Johannesburg, Harare, and many U.S cities too! Hoping to see Cuba soon!
My Life Motto: As you Believe, you Perceive and eventually you Receive.
What I really enjoy about this platform is how it allows us to go beyond our barricades, whether it be actual walls or our cell phones, and return to the art of talking to people we didn't know before and befriending great people that we would have never met otherwise.
