The homesharing guest is interested in local insights into the community’s unique restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and other attractions. We direct our guests to the local businesses and amenities that make Portland special, stimulating the neighborhood economic fabric that is the cornerstone of our community culture.
We complement more than we compete with hotels.
Ask any host; our guests regularly state that homesharing listings offer accessibility to every corner of our community at every price point.
We contribute to housing affordability.
Every tax dollar a Portland-based homeshare host generates goes to the City’s Housing Investment Fund.
We support the "One Host One Home" concept.
We recognize the property owners who make more than one property available in the short term rental market may be aggravating housing affordability challenges. Thus we support regulation that limits hosts to one property in the city of Portland.
