This was the first time we used AirBnB and Sharon was a great host. We really enjoyed staying in her beautiful home. It was easy to arrange our stay and communicate with her. Plus, her pets are friendly and adorable and the neighborhood is fantastic. Highly recommended!
Sharon was very nice, gave us tips for where to eat. I loved the books in our room which were great guides for walking and seeing the sites of Portland. Nice.
We had a great stay at Sharon's. There were three of us, 2 of which were kids, and Sharon offered us the use of an additional mattress on the floor for one of the kids and it was perfect! She was very knowledgable about the area and helpful with information and suggestions. Her house is right across the street from the fabulous Laurelhurst Park , which we visited almost daily. Our room was spotless as was the bathroom. It was very comfortable and homey. I will absolutely stay with Sharon again on my next visit.
The accommodations are as described--a large upstairs room in an older house decorated with charming and quirky personality (which is why we all like Portland). Sharon was an accommodating host, and the house was a good base for us in a very nice older neighbourhood very near the lovely and large Laurelhurst Park (also walking distance to a Whole Foods grocery store and the inexpensive Laurelhurst movie theatre). Check out Wild Abandon for a good happy hour, meal and patio.
Sharon's home is lovely, and full of eclectic pieces of her life that tells a great story. Our stay with Sharon was brief because we stayed just long enough to do a photoshoot. She is a very nice person and the accommodations were better than we expected! We especially loved the neighborhood! I definitely recommend Sharon as a host :)
I honestly can't recommend Sharon's place enough. I had a couple of friends visiting Portland from the midwest, and as I don't have enough space in my house for guests, I booked her place for their week long stay. I live in the neighborhood, so I already knew how convenient and centrally located it is to explore the town. However, I didn't know what a great host Sharon would be. She really went above and beyond my expectations in making my friends feel at home during their visit. Two full beds at a low price with an amazing host in the best neighborhood in Portland. Can't ask for anything more than that.
We had an excellent stay with Sharon in a beautiful area of Portland! Sharon was a great host, giving us as much space as we wanted but happy to chat whenever. The house is great, close to a big park and within walking distance to most of Southeast Portland, and an easy bus ride downtown. When I'm back in Portland I will definitely check to see if this room is available to stay in again!
Like Ms. Dawson said, I was very busy during my trip. I was on a mission you could say. And it that way, this location was ideal. I didn't see much of Sharon, but the house is perfect for this kind of travel. This was my first time in Portland, great city.
The adventure continues...
Lovely hostess with amazing house plants and comfortable room with twin beds. One is staying within the home and sharing bathroom facilities. Sharon was helpful with advice on where to walk and shopping nearby.
Amazing stay with Sharon!!!!
The location is great since it is only a ten-minute bus ride to downtown Portland. There are also many wonderful restaurants and cafes within walking distance from the house. Sharon is a wonderful host too. She afforded me a nice bedroom with towels and soap, and plenty of maps and travel guides about Portland. I would recommend her to anyone who wants not only a friendly hostess, but also someone who is knowledgeable about the town and state of Oregon.
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.
