The best thing you can possibly do if you are considering staying with us is to stop reading this right now, scroll down, and read the reviews from 782 of our past guests. If you're seeking the complete Portland experience, this is the place to stay.

The space

This private bedroom sleeps two in a queen-size bed. Please note: our house isn't well suited for small children. Kids over the age of 12 are welcome. We are cannabis friendly, but we ask that you use the side porch and fire pit area to enjoy it. No smoking in the house, please.

The shared bathroom is right outside of the bedroom. You will be the only guests using it, but since it is on the main level, I may duck in there to use the facilities during the day.

Guest access

You are welcome to use the kitchen and the living/dining rooms and front porch.

We want you to be as comfortable as possible, so please use the living room, dining room, kitchen and our fabulous front porch and side porch.

Interaction with guests

We are casual and not stuffy and welcome everyone (LGBT friendly). Click the profile video to the right to see what we're about. We love hosting and we have received tons of positive feedback from our guests. We would say we are completely easy going and have no agenda other than to see you have a good time. If you have any special concerns or requests, click the "CONTACT ME" button to your right and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Other things to note

We want to help you look back on your Portland stay as one of your best trips ever. We have books and maps about how to "do" Portland, whether restaurants, outdoors, nightlife, etc. Borrow whatever interests you!


1) Hairdryer, Towels, Shampoo, and Soap- Yes, we have these for you, leave yours at home and save space.

2) Tea Kettle- Yes, we have one for you along with tea.

Lovely people! As soon as I arrived they made me feel very welcome and gave me a good idea of the city. Excellent recommendations about surrounding food places as well!

This was my first airbnb experience. They have set the bar high! I felt extremely welcome and relaxed in Kristin's lovely home. Clean and comfortable and I slept very well. Really enjoyed the neighbourhood and Kristin will give you great top tips on where to go. I can recommend secr(URL HIDDEN) - a walking tour downtown that meets at 11am each day and is hosted by a great tour guide, Eric. Very interesting and entertaining. Thank you Kristin and Kip.

We really enjoyed our stay in Kristin's home - check-in was super easy, her home was conveniently located near a variety of food options and it was very clean and cozy. Would recommend.

Kristin and Kip were very accommodating. Kristin gave us a map of sellwood with recommendations of places to shop and eat. The house is perfectly located in the heart of Sellwood. Literally, rolled out of bed threw some shoes and jacket on then walked the block and a half to get coffee. The bedroom was right next to the shared bathroom. The bed offered some of the best nights of sleep we’ve had since coming to Portland! Kristin and Kip have a busy household and work from home. They have chickens, grow vegetables and are in the kitchen whipping up some amazing meal for their family most days. We really enjoyed getting to know them!
