Welcome to women and couples, our tranquil home offers you a private bedroom & shared bathroom. This elegant airy room has a queen bed, vanity and sitting area.Bedroom faces the backyard. Self serve continental breakfast is available.
We are within walking distance to many famous eateries, breweries, coffee shops, and MJ dispensaries. You are sure to enjoy the treasures of Portland from this central location. Note: 2 cats used to live here but moved away as of June 1 2017.

The space

My 1927 English style home was completely renovated in 2010. It offers casual elegance on a friendly family block in the Historic Irvington Neighborhood.
Your bedroom is light and airy with a romantic dreamy feel to it. The bed is medium firm offers body molding comfort with a 3" gel foam topper. The shared (when we have another guest) bathroom has a jacuzzi tub to warm and relax you after a full day of Portland explorations.There is a second bathroom with a shower on the main floor available if needed.

Guest access

Your bedroom is located on the second floor of the house. Continental breakfast is available for you in the kitchen. The fridge is available for leftovers when needed. Simple stovetop reheating is fine to do. I do not own a microwave.
The formal (yet casual) living room offers a relaxing place to read and (when we have one burning in cold months) enjoy a fire.
We welcome you to enjoy the shared back yard -with fish pond and chairs to relax. We have a dining table available for your outdoor dining pleasure too. This is a great place to enjoy your morning breakfast! (seasonal, of course).

Interaction with guests

As owner of the home based boutique Pilates studio, I work part time with clients during the day. Some evenings that I am home, I am available to share a cup of tea or glass of wine. I enjoy hearing about your adventures and getting to know you. You can feel free to come and go as you please. I respect your privacy. If we don't see one another, you can always contact me via text and I will get back to you within an hour or so!

Nina and Lu'a home is a great choice, it was beautifully decorated, super clean and very close to public transportation stops to get downtown easily. The neighborhood is absolutely beautiful and walking distance to restaurants and shops in the area. Nina was great at communicating and accommodating to us with our arrival and departure times. Lu was very kind and was there in the evening to give us any quick tips and answer any questions about our stay. Would certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone I know staying in Portland

This room was exactly what we had imagined and more. Super comfortable bed, air conditioning, privacy and the hosts were extremely friendly. Shared bathroom was also super clean and the general amenities in the house (backyard, kitchen, etc.) were great. Would definitely recommend!

Nina and Lu's home was extremely charming, comfortable, and central to all the places we wanted to check out in Portland. Both were extremely responsive and checked in periodically to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Their personal touches really made our stay a hundred times better. If given another opportunity, we'd absolutely stay at their place again if we came back to Portland!

Great location to stay in Portland. Very close to a lot of the popular places to visit. The house was as advertised, the room was clean, and the hosts Nina and Lu were very quick in communication and resolution to any issues.

I love HOME! Having a tranquil place to call HOME offers me the ability to enjoy the world (near and far) and always have a place to return to so I can recharge. Travel is a passion of mine. I love to soak in different cultures, peoples' points of view, beauty, sights, sounds and flavors. I have traveled and lived extensively in Asia. I found that my richest and most memorable experiences were those shared with "locals" in residential areas, doing average daily activities.
I am now in the stage of life where I can travel to locations and have adventures that are on my "bucket list". I feel very blessed to meet people from all over and make life long friends.
When I am home in Portland, I enjoy teaching Pilates and Yoga in my private boutique studio and creative ballet to little ones! Connecting with people of ALL AGES is a love of mine!
I must admit that sometimes I feel like a "tourist" in my own home town. Living in Irvington for the past 25 years, I have not needed to venture very far. (quite ironic; I love to travel far and wide, but love to stay close to home when I am in Portland) Recently I have started to explore my own wonderful city! I love discovering new eateries, wineries, galleries, boutiques, movement studios, dance groups and the fun quirky things that Portland is so good at!
I find daily activities and their simple blessings the best way to enjoy a full, rich and satisfying life. I enjoy getting to know people everywhere I go.
I hope to offer you a private, safe and tranquil HOME away from HOME while you enjoy the wonderful daily blessings Portland and its surrounding areas have to offer.
