Welcome to my humble little home! We love meeting people from all over the world. You will enjoy your visit here. Just express your needs to us and we will do what we can to help your stay be comfortable for you.

My home is located just off Division St., yes, the famous Restaurant Row of Division St. in SE Portland. Division St is home to the reknowned Pok Pok Thai Restaurant, Ava Gene's Restaurant famous for authentic Italian cuisine, Salt and Straw for your ice cream dreams, Whiskey Soda Lounge, Bollywood Theatre, and so, so much more.

I am personally an admitted "Restaurant Junkie" working at the famous Country Cat Dinner House and Bar as seen Diner's Dives and Drive-Inns and promoted by Guy Fieri. Come in and enjoy some Southern Cuisine done the way it should be! Country Cat is located in the Montavilla strip of restaurants only about 1.5 miles north of my humble little home. I spent many years working at the famed Ringside Steakhouse and did a 15-year-"tenure" at a famous Jazz Club and Dinner House, "The Brasserie Montmartre" during its hey day.

I am also currently an InnKeeper, obviously, and have spent many years as an Importer of South American Art, Jewelry, Textiles, Beads, Women's Accessories, Men's and Women's Ponchos, Shawls, Scarves, etc., where I acquired the nickname, "The Scarf Queen".

Hablo español. Estoy aquí para ayudarle. Avíseme no más.

Jazz is greatly admired in this home. We hope that you agree.

We really enjoy communicating with our guests, friends and family in as many forms as possible. That is what brings richness to life. Please feel free to write to us online via Airbnb and that will help each of us decide if we are the right fits for each other.

Karen is a busy person with lots of interests, working in various famous restaurants and participating in numerous other sideline gigs that keep her going and going. Our home encompasses an ever-changing visual landscape.

Life, like our home, is a consistent work in progress...

Feel free to write with any questions or requests.

Carpe Diem!!

Clean Sheets, Clean Towels and a Hot Shower await you.
