Overview

Vacation Home
A one of a kind home away from home; you may never want to leave. Fun, creative, unique, functional, vintage, cozy, and so much more. Loaded with original artwork, paintings, stained glass, sketches, photography, and other details.

Located in the HEART of the city! A lightrail transit station just 1 block away guests can get anywhere in town. Downtown in 8 min, the MODA Center in 5min, the Historic Mississippi District a 10min walk. Friendly neighborhood with safe/free street parking.
Completely renovated & remodeled with brand NEW appliances including washer/dryer, queen mattress, flooring, windows, even the roof replaced. AC, clawfoot tub, Firestick (Netflix, Prime, Hulu), 5g wifi, all the cooking essentials for fabulous meals, and so much more. Decorated with decades of finds from my work in professional theatre, a love for antiques & collectables, and many of my world travels. Countless guests have described Urban Haven as "walking through a museum filled with so much 'cool stuff' to look at, everywhere!" Please enjoy the hundreds of reviews included in my profile. Although they are from my previous private Airbnb rooms, the brand new Carriage House promises the same abundance of hospitality, comfort, and attention to every detail.
** There is a new twin bed as well that can be set up in advance with notice. Be sure to include the actual number of guests in your initial inquiry or request.

Your private little house is also complete with it's own fenced in yard. A two story, 700sf oasis with 12ft and 10ft ceilings, and plenty of natural light. The private entrance is a path through beautiful garden landscape. Access to BBQ, peaceful fountains, and a hot tub. You'll also meet my dad and 2 adorable little pups SeeBee & Mannie.
** Due to several reasons there is a no pets policy.

This has been my "piece of the earth" for 24yrs. My Airbnb story began with a simple guest room in 2013 shortly after the death of my partner (a landscape designer). Within 2yrs, 4 themed guest rooms became my dream of an actual bed & breakfast known as Urban Haven, "a simple place in the city." As a SuperHost of 6+yrs I've welcomed 2000+ guests from 39 countries. Some guests returned 2, 3, and 4 times.

Location, location, location! In addition to the highlights above...there are direct lightrail trains from the PDX, Amtrak, & Greyhound stations. Driving? A short 2min off the freeway from both north & south. Self bike rentals at the end of the street (electric also available).
** If driving, the city of Portland requires all Airbnb Hosts to submit: make, model, and license plate number. Please understand that this is not a host only policy.

Getting around

** Portland is one of many cities facing the challenges and struggles of historic house/homelessness affecting countless Americans. There is no neighborhood that hasn't been impacted by this crisis. However, the city remains beautiful, kind, artistic, and welcoming to every traveler! ** Portland is also an amazing city! Despite some perceptions, we remain an extremely friendly, proud, welcoming and safe travel destination!
