Giant four bedroom, two story home with two screen porches, big beautiful living room & dining room. This is a house share, but most people who rent are out exploring all day, so the house is usually very private & quiet. There are a ton of amazing restaurants, concert venues, and more fun close to us. We are located across the street from the USM, very close to the Old Port. 25 min walk/$5 Uber to center of town!

Guest access

All four bedrooms share all common spaces - the living room, kitchen, dining room & bathroom. You'll see from my reviews that most people typically have the place to themselves if they want. Usually people are out exploring so the house is quiet. I am very rarely home, so you will have the top floor to yourself most of the time. Two kitties are very friendly and want to be around you all the time.

Interaction with guests

I'm available to help during your stay, but there is a strong likelihood we will not meet unless you are staying long term!

I stayed here for roughly 8 weeks and it was hard to leave! Michaela’s place is in the perfect location, plenty of parking on a quiet street and it’s just a short walk to downtown. She was a great host who has set a high bar for future hosts. I would definitely recommend Michaela’s place for anyone in the Portland area.

Really lovely place with two very lovely cats! The house/room is nice and spacious, with everything you need and in easy walking distance to lots of good food and sights! Highly recommended!

This was my first Airbnb experience and Michaela made it perfectly seamless from the beginning. Communication was clear, prompt and insightful in the weeks leading up to the trip. The location was great, just about a mile walk or $5 uber into the old port. The house was very clean and i was always greeted by two very sweet cats. Overall, Michaela has set the bar very high for my future hosts. I'll be staying here if I return to Portland!

Sunny apartment with cute friendly cats. Not right in town, but still walkable to the center city in about 20-25 min. The walk is partly through a large park. There was a pretty substantial farmer's market in the park on Saturday while I was there (summer). I found Lyft or the #4 bus on Brighton Ave to be convenient quicker ways to get into town. Note some of the other rooms are sometimes rented out to AirBnb guests too.

Convenient location for Portland things. Parking may be difficult, depending on time of day. Shared house is what it is, but I feel like at least the floors could have been cleaner, considering there was a request made to remove shoes before entering. I wanted to explore Portland more, but I couldn't stay in the house any longer. I wasn't even expecting much, but I was tempted to leave as soon as I had arrived, because I didn't think it was worth the $78.

Response from Michaela:
Hey Mariko, There is ample free, all-day parking next door, which I directed you to. The shared housing is clearly outlined in the description. You had a clean room and a beautiful house, I'm not sure how that's not worth $78.
