I've lived in my apartment for over 10 years. It's a beautiful 1920's vintage building and I love how quiet it is in the heart of bustling northwest Portland.

The space

Renting a great little guest room in my garden apartment in the heart of Northwest Portland. This centrally located building is 2 blocks from 2 bus lines (#15 and #77), and 3 blocks from the streetcar.

Nestled in the back corner of this classic 1920's courtyard building is my multistory, 2 bdrm, 1 bathroom apartment. I am currently renting a 2nd story guest room (one, full-sized bed) with a southern view of my patio garden. This is a shared bathroom situation. My bedroom is directly across the hall, but with the doors closed this is a pretty quiet room. Though it's rarely needed here in Portland, my apartment does NOT have air conditioning. The room has west and south facing windows and gets a good breeze overnight. There is also a fan for your use if wanted.

Though it's located just off the bustling and trendy Northwest 23rd Ave this is a relatively quiet apartment (aside from my neighbor occasionally singing along as he plays his guitar, the chirping of the birds, and the bark of a neighbor's dog.) The neighborhood is filled with bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and various shopping options. Additionally, Wallace Park is a block away and a hike in Forest Park is a mere 10 minutes by foot.

Includes: Wi-Fi, access. Shared kitchen use. Full bed. Room is located on 2nd floor. Smoking allowed on patio or in the entry outside the front door. I do have one cat, but she mostly stays in my room. Her name is Gray, she's curious and friendly, but a bit skittish.

This is a shared bathroom and kitchen situation. You're also welcome to hang out in the living room and dinning room and on the back patio.

It just depends on the guest and our schedules. If you're around and want to chat, I am generally available.

It's very walkable and there are lots of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. It's also full of old houses and interesting architecture. It's a vibrant neighborhood with lots of people watching.

There are two buses (#15 and #77) and the streetcar with a few blocks. I don't own a car and rely primarily on public transit and walking.

Brent's house was great - very comfortable and in a great neighbourhood. Brent was a super host, and made sure I had everything I needed.

We had a lovely stay at Brent's home, he was very welcoming and had prepared towels and blankets for us before we arrived as well as a nice welcome note giving us advice on the best spots to eat in the area. Location was excellent, close to boutique shops with a variety of tasty restaurants. Overall our stay was very good and would defiantly stay again!

We had a brilliant time with Brent in Portland! He made us feel very welcome and his house is super-pretty. His cat is also lovely. This house is an amazing location in North West district, and a perfect place from which to explore Portland. Cannot recommend enough. We also left a jacket in his house by accident, and he contacted us and was happy to send it back to us straight away, which was lovely.

A very quick and easy stay in this super-cool house in a super-cool area of the city. Brent was a great host and made it very easy to get in and out - I wish I'd been able to stay longer, but I am grateful that he was able to squeeze me in at such short notice. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Portland.

I'm a pretty easy-going, quiet, gay guy living in beautiful Portland. I love cooking and eating good food and drinking good wine with friends.

I'm trying to create my dream job by being a part of the founding team of an upstart company called Kids for Recycling. To make money, I'm a server and a pretty avid Airbnb host for about a year now.

I've really enjoyed meeting a lot of interesting and friendly people hosting and look forward to meeting many more.
