Thanks for having a look and considering staying in my home. I travel a lot for work and find that the best experiences happen when I stay in a house in a cool neighborhood that is removed from, but close to, the downtown or commercial area of a city. I'm so lucky to have a home in an amazing area of Portland and look forward to sharing this place with guests. I personally think this is the ideal neighborhood for many reasons, including proximity: I'm a short walk from Alberta Arts, 15 minute bike ride to downtown, 15 minute bike ride to SE Hawthorne area, and a 10 minute drive to the airport.
A few tips: Dalos Ethiopian restaurant is 15 blocks away and perhaps the best inexpensive meal in all of Portland. Try the burger at Grain & Gristle across the street. Take a walk to the Sabin Community Garden. Go see a movie at the Kennedy School. Get a piece of pie at Random Order.
Enjoy your time in this beautiful city!
