The space

One of a kind, 750 square foot, apartment-sized living area with fireplace and skylights in renovated, historic Portland bungalow. 2 city bikes included (4 to choose from in different sizes). In the heart of booming inner NE Portland. Bike paradise. Walk or bike to restaurants, shops, bars, breweries. Only 2 miles (9 pedaling minutes) from downtown and the Pearl. Kitchenette bar with water kettle, french press, mugs, wine glasses. We also have a small fridge, microwave and AC. New bathroom with large shower and heated floors that come on automatically in the morning. Natural body-wash, shampoo and conditioner is provided.

The entire 2nd floor, including the bedroom, living room and bathroom, is not shared - only guests have access. The main floor is our living space. Our cat is very friendly and she is indoor only. She is not allowed upstairs.

We are available via the airbnb app, email or phone to answer questions. Most likely someone will be present on the main floor when guests are present, but the loft is like a separate living space.

Walk to restaurants and shops
Inner NE Portland is booming. And it is the most bike friendly neighborhood in town.
- Williams Ave (1.5 blocks away) has shops, bars and restaurants opening every day.
- Historic Mississippi St has great bars, shops, breweries and restaurants - a personal favorite.
- A locally-owned grocer, New Seasons, just opened a new store 4 blocks away. Lots of great organic produce. It's our happy place.
- Irving Park is just 3 blocks away and has a great running trail, playground, basketball and tennis courts.

Portland has great public transportation and walking and biking routes everywhere. The MLK St bus goes straight downtown and is only $2.50.

FYI: The couch is not a sleeper sofa.

Guest access

The entire 2nd floor, including the bedroom, living room and bathroom, is not shared - only guests have access. The main floor is our living space. You most likely will let yourself in using the keybox unless we happen to be around. We send detailed check-in instructions before your arrival.

Interaction with guests

We are available via the airbnb app, email or phone to answer questions. Most likely someone will be present on the main floor when guests are present, but the loft is like a separate living space.

Other things to note

The couch is not a sleeper sofa so the space is best suited for couples or close friends who do not mind sharing a bed. There is a large walk in closet with hangers and two dressers. There is an iron and ironing board and a hairdryer.

Alex and Ida's private loft is the cleanest Airbnb I've ever stayed at. In addition, they have an awesome 'No Shoes' policy inside their home. FYI for Portland visitor, their location is under 10 minutes drive to downtown/Pearl District. I would recommend renting a car to go around.

The Loft space was easy to get into and just like it was described. The AC worked nicely which was great :) and the whole setup was incredibly comfortable! There's a little fridge that's perfect for keeping leftovers and a kitchen cart with a cups, glasses, silverware, a french press, and microwave. The shower is amazing and big, and the whole loft has beautiful natural light. Our favorite part of the whole stay were the 2 bikes that came with the room. We biked to nearby restaurants, and even a movie theater a 10 minute bike ride away. The neighborhood area is beautiful and if you're alright with an enjoyable, longer bike ride, we ended up riding all the way to the pedestrian bridge and then up the NW side of Portland across the river. Would definitely recommend the space. Many thanks Ida & Alex.

Beautiful home in a fantastic location. My husband and I used the complimentary bikes and cruised all over Portland's neighborhoods, experiencing the best food and drink that the city had to offer. If we find ourselves in Portland again, we'd definitely stay with Alex & Ida.
