I am a retired kindergarten teacher. I've traveled extensively and enjoy sharing my home, and Portland, with other travelers.
Sharon's home is a stone's throw away from a beautiful large park on a residential street, within walking distance to many excellent bakery cafes, restaurants, and interesting shops. Her home is full of artistic flair, and her friendly cat was fun to play with. We didn't get to spend time with Sharon, but she made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. I hope to come back to her home in the future.
Many thanks to Sharon, for making our stay in Portland, so very sweet! Your home, our room, the neighborhood, your recommendations, everything was perfect!
Our stay with Sharon was the quintessential airbnb experience in my opinion…super charming and welcoming house, a host that is excited to see you and provides information on the local area, and a location that makes everything accessible. Within a short walk are cafés and shops, around the corner a lovely park, and one street over a bus line that takes you right into the city…although we walked it multiple times because it was worth it. Definitely recommend booking with Sharon if the dates are available.
We had a very pleasant stay at Sharon's place. The room was cosy and clean. The neighbourhood was calm and beautiful. Sharon was a helpful and friendly host and everything was as agreed. Also, she had a cute dog with good character.
Sharon is a fantastic host, and her house is absolutely amazing. There is so much to do within walking distance of her house that will keep you entertained no matter what you're looking to do: take a walk in a beautiful park, shop, have amazing food and drinks. I can't see how you could possibly run out of things to do while visiting!
Sharon made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a friendlier host, and her pets are as sweet as they come. If you're visiting Portland and Sharon's listing is available, don't even think twice. Book your stay immediately!
Sharon has a beautiful house in a very desirable neighbourhood. The accommodations are comfortable, Sharon is an easy going and considerate host, and there is lots to do within walking distance and a short drive. Thank you for a great stay in Portland! Can't wait to come back!
My sister and I were visiting Portland for the first time and our stay with Sharon was the best decision. Sharon herself was very accommodating and helpful with directions and places of interest. Her home is lovely and very comfortable and very close to Great restaurants, bakeries, vintage shops and public transportation stops. If you are looking for a new way to see portland or see portland for the first time, I recommend staying with Sharon. My sister and I could not have imagined a better trip.
Sharon's home is very clean and comfortable and is located in a lovely neighborhood. There is a beautiful park right nearby and it is an easy walk or drive to restaurants and anywhere else you may want to go in Portland. Sharon was very helpful in advising us of places to see. She even drew a map and wrote out directions to places of interest which was very helpful.
We only had to go around the block once, to figure out that this little bit of heaven, oh wait, of Ankeny, is one way in front of the house, lol. The room upstairs was charming, with a wonderful view. This part of Portland is wonderful, lots of places within walking distance. Sharon is charming and a wonderful host, and we love her decorations !
This was my first stay in Portland and with Airbnb and I think staying with Sharon fit my needs perfectly. Her home is charming, my room was comfortable, and, as all the other reviewers have commented, Sharon is a most gracious host. Her home is in a gorgeous neighborhood filled with historic homes and beautiful gardens. Crema, Starbucks, Whole Foods are just a few blocks away, as is a lovely park and some cool shops--Artemisia, an amazing "collage with nature" shop, and Wanderlust , and vintage clothing store. Lots of fun neighborhoods and shops to explore and that Sharon helped me walk and take buses to. The Japanese Garden is a must see. As a single person, I felt sfae staying at Sharon's home and it certainly is economical.
Sharon, Tim, Jody, (Chris, Nikki, and their pup Moses) were all great guests. I was so excited to have them stay...Sharon is the first Airbnb Host that has stayed at my place! The communicated their plans with me and respected my home and belongings. They left a nice note for me the day they left. I would highly recommend them and would love to have them back any time! Also if I make it out to Portland, I will be contacting Sharon for a place to stay!

Sharon is a fun loving, friendly and kind person. I enjoyed hosting her and her friends. Appreciate the momentos and the kind note she left in the apartment.
