Description

The Space

Your Portland Pied a Terre is quiet, warm and welcoming to people of all nations, races, faiths and genders, and will make you feel right at home. Whether kicking back on the deck or enjoying a vegetarian meal in the courtyard; reading or watching a video in your private living area; enjoying the sauna or sleeping deeply, this is a space where you will relax, refresh and revitalize! Drop me a line and tell me a bit about yourself if you'd like to come stay. I love to hear from folks near and far. A private entrance takes you to your own lower level space, with fully-stocked kitchenette, living area, spa-style bath, steam and dry sauna, bedroom with queen bed, laundry facilities and internet access. Outside awaits the deck, courtyard and gazebo for your enjoyment. I'm delighted to share tips for your time in Portland and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening. I love meeting people! And, if you prefer complete privacy, that's great too. It's your vacation -- have it YOUR way! The Irvington neighborhood was platted in the early 1800s and developed through the early 1900s. The homes range from Victorian to Dutch Colonial, American Foursquare to Federalist, Queen Anne to Craftsman. And everywhere, bounteous gardens burst from the yards, bright with blossoms and vegetable gardens. "Leave a Book, Take a Book" free libraries can be seen in numerous front gardens (including mine), and dozens of "Poetry Posts" display verse for the sheer enjoyment of passers-by. Walking in Irvington and nearby Alameda is a true delight to the senses. A lovely restaurant, Lucca is a 2 minute walk from my home, with more only blocks away. Whole Foods is an easy 15 minute walk, with Farmers Markets also nearby, Considered one of the finest neighborhoods in America, the sidewalks brim with life: dogs walking their people, children and parents heading to the park, songbirds, squirrels and cats. It's a wonderful place to live... and visit! I'm 6.4 miles from the airport - a $25 cab ride, or you can take public transit. Plan your trip at (website hidden). The #17 (Holgate/Broadway) bus is one block away, and takes you right downtown, which is a quick 3.5 miles from my home. I have two small dogs, Finnegan and Sullivan, and one 30-lb fella, Flynn. They're delightful! Well-trained and friendly, they love meeting new people (but won't be in your private space!).

The Neighborhood

The Irvington neighborhood was platted in the early 1800s and developed through the early 1900s. The homes range from Victorian to Dutch Colonial, American Foursquare to Federalist, Queen Anne to Craftsman. And everywhere, bounteous gardens burst from the yards, bright with blossoms and vegetable gardens. "Leave a Book, Take a Book" free libraries can be seen in numerous front gardens (including mine), and dozens of "Poetry Posts" display verse for the sheer enjoyment of passers-by. Walking in Irvington and nearby Alameda is a true delight to the senses. A lovely restaurant, Lucca is a 2 minute walk from my home, with more only blocks away. Whole Foods is an easy 15 minute walk, with Farmers Markets also nearby. Considered one of the finest neighborhoods in America, the sidewalks brim with life: dogs walking their people, children and parents heading to the park, songbirds, squirrels and cats. It's a wonderful place to live... and visit! A SNAPSHOT OF A TWO OR THREE-DAY STAY IN PORTLAND! Because AirBnB hides all websites, if you jump to "Portland Pied-à-Terre Airbnb" on -- well, AirBnB won't let me include the website here (but it's that site with newsfeeds and status updates, wink!), you'll find all of this information *with* websites included! :-) Now, here's a few ideas about what to do while you're here. Dinner on your first night: Lucca is right at the corner (pizza al funghi, YUM!) with maybe a trip over to Branch, a Whiskey Bar afterwards (on Alberta, a fun place to walk along); or Tasty & Sons on Williams, with Box Social afterwards for a drink; or Natural Selection - all vegetarian, also on Alberta, with a drink at the Bye & Bye after (also an all vegan restaurant) For the next day, possibly... Breakfast at Pine State Biscuits or Tin Shed, both on Alberta. Or you can grab some luscious donuts at Pip's, just up on Fremont. Try the "Sgt. Wu," named after Reggie Lee's character on the NBC hit show, GRIMM, which shoots in Portland (another production I work on!). A hidden gem and hipper than VooDoo! Then cross the river for formal gardens, lush forests, great views and books! Visit the Japanese Gardens for the flora and view... Pittock Mansion for the view and historically significant mansion... ...then right from Pittock Mansion, take a hike in Forest Park - at 5,100 acres, this is the nation's largest urban wilderness, and you can access it right from the Masion parking lot. Ready for lunch in town? Maybe Grassa Oven and Shaker A simple Deli picnic at World Foods Or a repast at Picnic House Tear Drop Lounge is great for martinis! More Pearl District dining options can be found at the Travel Portland website, under "Pearl District." Powell's Books, of course - the nation's largest independent bookseller. A MUST on your tour. The Living Room Theatres are fun and unique, and just across from Powell's. And our art museum is really fine. Portland Art Museum. If you love live theatre, these are two of our finest stages (I work at both): Portland Center Stage and Artists Repertory Theatre. Back on the east side, for dinner: Bollywood Theatre (on Alberta) - Indian street food And right next door, dessert! Salt and Straw Ice Cream For more dining options on Alberta, check out the Travel Portland website under "Alberta Arts District." Maybe some evening entertainment on Alberta: Alberta Rose Theatre, for bigger shows (crazy good ones) Alberta St. Pub for laid back indy performances Or on Mississippi St., a great walking/window shopping street: Mississippi Pizza: Great laid back music Mississippi Studios: Intimate, with surprisingly cool, bigtime artists performing More on this very fun neighborhood is at Travel Portland, under Mississippi/Williams. You might also consider dinner at Toro Bravo, and drinks at Secret Society Lounge (just upstairs from Toro Bravo). Toro Bravo is a little less veggie-friendly, but does have yummy options. And the Secret Society also often has wonderful acts! Again, you'll find this with live website links on that "newsfeed/status update" site under "Portland Pied-à-Terre Airbnb." Happy to help with anything else you're interested in exploring!

Getting Around

I'm 6.4 miles from the airport - a $25 (+ tip) cab ride, or you can take public transit. Plan your trip at the TriMet website. The #17 (Holgate/Broadway) bus is one block away, and takes you right downtown, which is a quick 3.5 miles from my home. Uber Cab is also in Portland now - their fare from the airport ranges $23-$30 (no tip). Taking Uber from my home to Powell's Bookstore is $11-$15 (no tip) depending on time of day. You might want to check out "Car2Go" before you come. Joining that organization in advance will allow you to use the many Car2Go vehicles in my neighborhood - there are always many close by! See their website for more. It's an awesome company and great for visitors! Enterprise Rent a Car is usually the least expensive agency in town. Sometimes the off-site location - 1 mile from my house - is even less expensive (2740 NE Sandy Blvd.), so check out both. You can also bike and walk many places! This is especially delicious during our gorgeous Spring, Summer and Autumn months.

Other Things to Note

I have two small dogs, Finnegan and Sullivan, and one 30-lb fella, Flynn. They're delightful! Well-trained and friendly, they love meeting new people (but won't be in your private space!).

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
