Description

Private bedroom and en suite bathroom 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You are staying in the vibrant and bustling Mississippi Avenue Historical District (in the Boise neighborhood) 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.
Most of this action is on Mississippi Ave between Fremont St (to the south) and Skidmore St (to the north). N Williams Ave, 6½ short blocks east, is another up-and-coming area with many similar attractions. A little farther afield is the Alberta St neighborhood, which is most interesting between 10th Ave and 31st Ave.

The house is within easy walking distance of public transportation, both bus (2-5 minutes) and light rail (~10 minutes). A major north-south bicycle route is just 1/3 mile away, and Portland is often cited as the most bike-friendly city in the country.

There are two Biketown (bicycle rental) hubs within a 5-minute walk, and 3 more within 10 minutes. (see

The airport is 20-25 minutes away by car and ~60 minutes by public transportation. Downtown is 5-10 minutes away by car and 10-30 by public transportation, depending on your precise destination.

On-street parking (which is free) is usually conveniently close to the house, but the neighborhood is a popular weekend and evening destination.

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.

Jeff's place was very nice, a great place to come back home to after experiencing the great city of Portland. It has loads to offer - a really nice bed, a pleasant bathroom, good coffee and sufficient space if you need to get a bit of work done. The location is excellent with some great restaurants just barely more than a stone's throw away. Public transportation is right there as well. Jeff is a very pleasant host who offers some great information about the area and the city as well as the surrounding area. He is very open and is a pleasure to talk with. While he is present most of the time, there is no pressure to interact and you easily can have your privacy. If you coming to Portland for any reason, Jeff's place is definitely a great choice for your accommodations.

Jeff's place is as good as it gets. A spacious, clean, tastefully done room in a terrific neighborhood with a helpful host. I'm almost hesitant to encourage others to stay here, as we'd like to have it all for ourselves when we need it!
