Our Portland AirBnB

When we were in Portland last July, there were several conventions and events happening city-wide so we couldn’t find any affordable hotel rooms. Enter Airbnb! We had used the site once in the past, when we stayed in Denver, so we knew it was easy to book a stylish, comfortable place.

The place we stayed in was a basement-level apartment north of the Alberta Arts district. I like the idea of an Airbnb most when the rental is within or attached to (but still separate) from someone’s home. This place, called Peaceful Retreat, was just that. Very peaceful with a monochromatic color scheme. The couple that owns the home are both designers, and you can tell.

I loved the cozy accessories. If we were there longer I would have liked to take better advantage of the sound system, games, and kitchen.

We weren’t downtown like we were last time, but since we had always intended on renting a car anyway, it was nice to be in a quiet part of town. I like taking advantage of Airbnb especially to check out cool neighborhoods in big cities that don’t really have a large hotel presence. If you have a trip coming up, possibly during the holidays, keep one of these vacation rentals in mind especially as hotels may have filled up! If you haven’t joined Airbnb yet, here’s my referral link, which will give me a little somethin’ somethin’ for recommending you. ;)

Disclosure: I was not asked by Airbnb to write this review (they have no idea who I am), but if you use my code to join, I get a credit to my account.

  1. That place is beautiful. I am head over heels in love with that dining room table. That place could easily go very cold and dark but they keep it light and cozy. How lovely!

    Ryan and I booked our very first Air B&B over Thanksgiving. We’re going to hole up all alone for a few days. I can’t wait to report back about our experience.

    1. It was really nice! I could see a nice long stay there myself. Sparsely decorated but home-like feel… made me strive to be a bit more minimal at home!

  2. Ooo so pretty I love the rugs in the dining room. Can you recommend some good restaurants? My boyfriend and I are taking a trip to Portland in February. BTW love your blog!
