This large private flat is all yours. Sunny office, laundry in unit, small back deck with grill. Just four blocks from Arts District with easy access to 295. Off-street parking. My wife and I are avid Airbnb users and we love to show visitors around!

The space

Four blocks up the street, people will pay $300 a night to stay at the Westin. Here you can have a whole apartment for just a fraction of that! This is a 1-bedroom apartment with a pull-out couch in the living room that accommodates 2 more.

There's also a smaller office-type room off the bedroom with a daybed - perfect for a young person.

Guest access

Guests have the entire second floor, plus a small deck and access to a bigger shared deck with grill on the first floor. The unit comes with sheets, towels, and kitchen supplies. There's also a 24-hour convenience store and gas station a half-block away.

We have a small driveway you can use to park off street during your stay. This is a nice feature, since street parking is difficult in many parts of downtown Portland.

Interaction with guests

It's up the guests. Personally, I like to get to know people and show them around the city. We've lived here a while and know all the great places to go. We've also been known to take visitors on sailboat rides.

Very Clean and nice place to stay. Chris was helpful with check in and suggestions. We loved that we could walk everywhere and leave our car parked

Traveled with spouse and two kids (4&8yrs). Great place. Clean, central. Off street parking a plus. Lots of car and ped traffic at night in summer, so not quiet, but we didn't mind.

Chris' place was super centrally located, within 15 mins of downtown (Old Port), clean, with comfortable beds, and he photos don't do the apartment justice. It's modern and I'd be happy to stay there again!

Chris's unit was exactly as described, and a wonderful spot to spend a long weekend in town. Great location (walkable to downtown and Old Port easily, near Back Cove Bay and Hadlock Field, right off the highway, on a quaint block) and well furnished, it had a comfy bed, a great shower, all the basics you'd need like dishes and towels, plus a parking spot and a back porch overlooking the park across the street. Chris was great with giving us specific info before arrival about how/where to park, how to get in to the unit, and all the other things we needed to know. He was in touch a few times throughout the weekend, so even though we never had the chance to meet in person, it felt like he was just a quick text away if we had any issues. Real nice apartment, and I'd happily stay there again!

Great place. Very clean and Chris's instructions were very clear. Furniture was a bit uncomfortable but manageable.

I've lived in Portland for 12 years, off and on. Up until recently I've spent much of my time starting nonprofits and exploring the world - these days I'm focusing on things closer to work. I currently manage a team of software developers and spend my free time sailing and planning the next big thing.
