The space

The location of the unit is the middle level of a recently updated triplex and is centrally located in the neighborhood of Brooklyn in SE Portland, only a few miles from downtown Portland. It's a five minute bus ride to OHSU or a 15 minute ride to downtown Portland! Within blocks you'll find excellent dining, 24 hr fitness, coffee shops, shopping, the Aladdin Theatre and everything you could possibly need. This area has a walking score of 78!

If you are traveling with pups, let us know in your first message.

Guests will have access to on site laundry and bike storage as well.

The units are separate, so we can have as much or as little interaction as you'd prefer. I'm more than happy to be helpful and point guests to places and activities if they are interested. But, no pressure.

What is great about this neighborhood is the proximity to so many amazing shops and delicious restaurants! It's all within walking or biking distance.

This unit is blocks from a major bus line and blocks from the newly opened Orange MAX Line on 17th Ave.

Guest access

The home itself is keyless entry, and has a communal bike storage area in the basement, as well as a washer and dryer. In the washroom, we also have an ironing board and an iron for your use. If you choose to use the laundry area, be courteous as others use the area as well.

Interaction with guests

We no longer live on-site, but still love to meet and chat with our guests! If you'd like to meet us when you check in, send us a message and we would love to meet you. We are also minutes away, so if you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to ask!

The neighbourhood

Our neighborhood is in a great spot. It is a quiet neighborhood, and less than a block away from a park! Also, we just had the new MAX line open up on 17th, which is about four blocks away, so getting around Portland is very easy!

Getting around

We are mere blocks from multiple bus lines, including the Trimet bus barn, and the new MAX Orange Line!

Dogs are more than welcome! I have a yellow lab of my own that keeps me busy. I know how difficult it can be to travel with a pet, so I wanted to make it easy for you dog lovers! Please send us a message if you plan on traveling with your dog, and be prepared to clean up after your dog. (Muddy paws, etc.)

This is a non-smoking unit, so please no smoking (of any kind) on the property.

Great place, very clean and has everything you would need for your stay. The owners stopped by to bring us some extra towels, they were very nice and helpful. Highly recommend staying here!

This is a great, clean & well cared for 2nd floor of a triplex in a sleepy area of southeast Portland. I stayed here with my wife and two kids and it served as a great home base for us to explore Portland for a week. The entire place isn't very large, but worked really well for us. It felt like we filled the place out, but still comfortably. The kitchen has plenty of room to cook and prepare food. It's about a 10 minute walk to various public transportation lines, which we were able to use to get to most places we wanted to go in a half an hour or so. It's less the 15 minutes from OMSI (Portland's Science Museum) and we spent an entire day there. The host was clear and timely with her communication. There was absolutely no surprises!

Exactly what you would expect from the photos and reading the description. Ashley was quick to respond and proactively checked in with me. I had one request during my stay and Ashley came up with a quick and effective solution. I would recommend to anyone.

Our stay with Ashley and Benjamin was perfect even though it was during the snowstorm of decades. Plenty of comfortable room, great yard for our 2 dogs and just a couple blocks from a lovely park. There are many options for food, drink and shopping within walking distance while still feeling like a friendly and safe family neighborhood. We got to meet lots of neighbors, everyone was out playing in the snow. A great stay for a reasonable price.

Ashley And Benjamin User ProfileAshley And Benjamin is a superhost.

We grew up on the Oregon Coast and truly love the Pacific Northwest!
We've lived in several different places, including Japan, Italy, and (kind of random) El Paso, Texas. Japan and Italy were amazing, and Texas, too hot. Our hearts belongs here, where trees grow tall, and the grass grows green!

We want you to enjoy your stay and come to love this place as much as I do. If you wish, We can point you in the direction of many fun places and must have experiences during your stay in Portland.

Ashley is currently teaching full time as a middle school special education teacher and Benjamin works for the Army here in Portland.

We greatly enjoy dining out, catching a movie, traveling, or just relaxing with some Netflix.

As hosts we strive for relaxed professionalism :-). We do our best to provide our guests with a completely self-sufficient unit that they can enjoy as they explore our wonderful city. We are happy to interact and get to know our guests or allow them their space and privacy, we let you decide what level of interaction you are comfortable with.

Our motto is: By improving oneself you improve ones community. :-)
