Our bright and cozy backyard guesthouse has a full kitchen and bathroom, with one full bed and one pull-out couch. We are one block from the heart of Alberta Street and an easy walk to cafes, restaurants, and bars. It is located on a neighborhood alley so it's super quiet - a great place to relax or to use as a home base for exploring PDX. To help you get around and see more of the City, we also have two bikes with locks, lights, and helmets for you to use during your stay.

Alison & Alex’s place is fantastic! It’s comfortable, clean and most importantly right in the center of Alberta Arts district. Will definitely stay here again next time we check out PDX.

This is a perfect spot with everything you need. The check in and out was very easy. It was super clean and well decorated. The location was wonderful, too, with lots to do within walking distance. We had a rental car as well, and parking was very easy. Would stay again!

Alison and Alex's place was one of the top places we've ever stayed in. It's a block away from Alberta street and minutes away from Great Notion, Pine State Biscuits, and Waffle Window!
