About This Listing
Every nook and cranny of this joint has been spruced up and is anticipating your arrival. This apartment is only used through airbnb meaning it is staged so you feel like you live in it and have every cozy thing you will need like a hotel but so much better...There is an all equipped kitchen and an incredibly comfy queen bed in the albeit small cozy bedroom. The bedroom has a sliding door, closet, and the bed built into the corner. There is also a couch in the living area that has a bed inside of it for extra guests. There are heated floors so that your feet are warm in the winter time. A ton of great books to curl up and read and a patio outside of your french doors and private entrance from the street. There is also a driveway in front of the apartment which is yours to use or not. This abode was made to feel rustic so much of the wood is unfinished. If you prefer brand new construction with a rustic finish this is the place for you.
Location! Location! Location! We are in an awesome location! Not near the Alberta district but IN it yet we are a couple of blocks away which means our street is quiet. We are a stone's throw from so many great bars and restaurants. This could be a vacation of all walking or you could hop on one of the many public transit options a few blocks away. Or you could rent bikes on Alberta St. This neighborhood is so fun and filled with cute and unique small businesses, shops and establishments yet it is also peaceful. The farmer's market is exactly three blocks down the street and takes place each Sunday. Last Thursday is a festival once a month on Alberta St. We are also walkable/bikeable to other neighborhoods in the NE like the Williams Corridor and Mississippi St.
Our abode is like a retreat in a very fun city! We are here as your hosts to help create the best stay possible but it is likely we may never see you as your apartment is completely private from our home. The space is a garden level so it is underneath our house but has french doors and a big window overlooking your own outside space. This space gets great light and truly feels like a cabin. Even though we took great measures in sound proofing you still will hear us pittering and pattering upstairs, our dog barking at the mailman, or our washer/dryer when it is on. You will have a sound machine in your bedroom in case you are a sensitive sleeper and the above might disturb you. We will also leave you an extensive homegrown list of the best spots in town and will only be a text away! The feeling of the apartment is truly unique and quite an experience. We look forward to creating the best nest for your Portland adventure.

Be decent and enjoy yourself. Smoke outside only. Please be respectful with the knowledge that this is a neighborhood. With this we ask to not entertain other in the abode. If you have family members or a special friend that lives in town that is fine, however please no parties and no noise past 10pm. Thanks!
The Millers were terrific hosts who were sincerely concerned about making my stay as good as it was. Very responsive and welcoming, and respectful of privacy. Their flat is very comfortable and well decorated. Neighborhood was great--loads of restaurants and cafes in walking distance.
I will be be back!
We really enjoyed our stay. The Abode was adorable, clean, comfortable, and had all the amenities we needed (clean towels, sheets, pillows, a fan - it was really hot weather during our stay, the fan came in handy!). Very clear directions for finding the place and the key, etc. It was nice and quiet and in a lovely neighborhood.
We found the house very easily. We were in town for a wedding and we used the place to sleep and get ready. It was so cute and peaceful, everything was awesome! I would love to come back and stay, if I get to come back to Oregon and see family. I loved that we had our own parking space that was great! We finally met Penelope the last night we were there she was very nice and said hi and made sure we had a pleasant visit.
This was an adorable little abode! Super spacious and I loved the style, you could tell there was a lot of effort put in to making this space great. Great communication by the host, it was easy to check in and out. I also have to say the bathroom is awesome, you may not think its that significant but when you stay in a variety of places it definitely makes a difference. I would love to stay here again!

About the Host, Penelope
I am a professional organizer and co-active coach. My husband owns his own electrical contracting company. We moved to Portland from San Francisco years ago to plant some roots and my how they have grown! We have remodeled two homes and our current home has been featured in the home decor blog Apartment Therapy. I love creating a magical and enchanted space for others to enjoy and refuel in..
Nathan and I use airbnb when we travel as it feels as if you are a local and less removed from the adventure at hand. I love leaving a list of our favorite spots here in Portland and enjoy playing host. We hope to make sure you adore this sweet little town as much as we do!
