Hi, I'm excited about being an AirBNB host! I like providing a comfortable respite from the road, and I definitely enjoy meeting people from all over. I live across from a beautiful neighborhood park that has tennis courts just steps away, and provides a serene setting, yet is close to all the great activities in neighborhoods downtown, in Mississippi, Alberta Arts, and Piedmont, to name a few. The house is half of a duplex. It is a 1500sf unit with 3 bedrms, 2.5 baths, hardwood floors in the "great room" which is one big room including fully loaded kitchen, living room, and dining room. People love the openness of the main floor. French doors to small front yard provide an open, friendly area for morning coffee or regrouping over wine in the evening. Other amenities include laundry room, full service refrigerator, and ample street parking. Conveniently located just a half block to bus, 6 blocks to light rail, I-5, and New Seasons whole foods store, 10 minutes to downtown (unless you want to take the bike trail, which makes it more like 20 minutes).
I am a writer and singer, and I have a lot in common with artistic types, but love to get to know all types of people. I'm definitely open and somewhat savvy about the world, though haven't traveled much (that's about to change, thanks to AirBNB!). Come enjoy a weekend, a week, or a month in the hidden Arbor Lodge neighborhood. I live here because it's close to everything, and yet feels like I'm in the country. A second park is only a block away, and the University of Portland and Adidas campus are just a few blocks away, along the bluffs overlooking downtown . I can help you get to know our completely amazing jewel of a city! My life mission is to "make a difference." This is my hosting style too. Welcome.
PS: Please check out my other listing's calendar. I have two listings, but it's the same house, so one booking affects the other. The "whole house" listing is https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/overview/695704, and the "private room" listing is https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/overview/758814.
