Private bedroom/bathroom suite on 2nd floor of a townhouse with modernist decor in the vibrant and bustling Mississippi Avenue Historical District within easy walking distance of microbreweries, coffee houses, bakeries, live-music venues, food carts, shops, boutiques, hair salons, yoga studios, and literally dozens of restaurants. Free, on-street parking and easy access to public transportation and bike paths.

The space

Your private suite accommodates 1-2 people and consists of a 185-sqft bedroom with a large, south-facing window that overlooks the street and a cherry tree; queen-size bed; two nightstands with lamps; a private "en suite" bathroom with tub/shower, commode, sink, and hair dryer; dresser with several available drawers; writing table with lamp; two chairs; and partial use of a walk-in closet with closet rod, hangers, and shelves; a single-serving coffee maker stocked with coffee and hot cocoa, and can be used to heat water for tea; and assorted light snacks.

NOTE: I currently limit my booking calendar to the next 3 months. If you are interested in booking a stay beyond that date, please send me a message; I may be able to accommodate you.

Guest access

You are welcome to lounge in the shared spaces downstairs--living room (with gas fireplace), dining room, kitchen, front porch, and fenced backyard patio. Feel free to keep a few items in the refrigerator and to use the blender, toaster, or microwave. Please consider the remaining three rooms upstairs private, but definitely feel free to poke your head in my office, if I’m there, to say hello or ask questions.

A washer, dryer, iron, and ironing board are available for your laundry at no charge.

You are welcome to use the driveway (off the alley) while unloading or loading your car when you arrive and leave, but please park on the street (free) at all other times. Only the driveway and garage nearest the alley are mine. The other is owned by my duplex neighbor, so please restrict yourself to my half. (This will make more sense when you see it.)

Interaction with guests

I work at home, so I am here most of the time. One of the best parts of many of my own AirBNB experiences as a guest has been getting to know my hosts. Though I will certainly give you all the privacy you want during your stay, I am more than happy to chat and get to know you a little better than a hotel desk clerk might. When I’m in my office, feel free to poke your head in and say hello or ask questions. In either case, I'll be happy to recommend things to do and see, and to point you in the right direction.

Other things to note

The house does not have central air-conditioning, but during the peak hot season, I install a window air-conditioner in the room. It has an outside-air-only mode. A floor-standing electric fan is also available for those times when a little extra air movement is all you need.
My internet service is rated at 150 mbps.

Awesome stay at Jeff's place - I only stayed for one night but it was great to be within a stone's throw of many restaurants and shops. The room is well appointed, very comfortable and private, and is set up perfectly for resting as well as working. Would stay there again in heartbeat.

It was very clean, modern and provided privacy as well. We would definitely stay here again if in the Portland area.

Had a wonderful stay at Jeff's house. The room was a great size and comfortable for two people. The en suite bath was a definite plus. Everything was just as described and pictured. The house is in a really nice neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants. Easy access to downtown by bus and MAX, and easy access to freeways.

Beautiful and spacious room with private bath and walk-in closet in a quiet residential neighborhood, where lively local restaurants are just a few minutes walk away. It's not necessarily convenient to go to downtown area by public transportation, but I used Uber most the time and it takes just 10 minutes or so. Jeff is super nice and informative. I will definitely recommend this place to anybody.
