I’ve decided renting a cool Airbnb is the ultimate Cinderella experience. You get be whoever you want to be and live in a place you wouldn’t normally get to live. This charming and sophisticated Nob Hill Bungalow was no exception! I felt like a Portland Princess, compete with a pink bedroom. Henry and I kept saying the whole time we stayed here, “I could totally live here!”
The best way I can describe it is ‘cool.’ It’s beautifully designed and in the most amazing location in the Alphabet District in the heart of Northwest Portland. You immediately feel welcome walking up the manicured steps to the front door of the lovely Victorian house. The suite is on the main floor of the home.
There’s even a charming front porch swing, which is perfect for people staring ahem I mean, watching.
The neighborhood is full of wonderful restaurants, shops and adventure, all within walking distance! It’s such a quaint part of town, full of young energy and everything Portland. Henry and I made more trips than we’d like to admit to Trader Joe’s, which was conveniently located right across the street!
The space was perfect for Henry and I, quaint and cozy. It’s full of character and old world charm, while remaining current and designed to the latest trends. I loved the “urban jungle” wall.
There were vintage items mixed with good reads on the bookshelf.
Lots of sunlight streamed in from the front, old-world glass windows.
The kitchen area was lofted three steps up and stocked with brand new appliances including a small fridge, mini dishwasher, sink, espresso machine, hot plate, and microwave.
The bathroom had a beautiful porcelain claw-foot tub with a shower-head. Henry said it was the best shower of his life!
Emma provided an array of toiletries including toothpaste and make-up remover, which made things easy for me, considering I tend to forget everything when I go on trips.
I mean, that headboard. Come on!
And who knew it was a requirement that the bedroom walls match my phone?
We slept so well on the plush queen mattress and were cooled and lulled to sleep by the air-conditioner.
Emma was so sweet and responsive and provided everything we needed in a home away from home. She really did think of everything! We can’t wait to come back!
