This space is the whole 3rd floor of building! Lots of space! Yoga studio on the first floor. Great big fenced in yard. Close drive to the many beaches. Free yoga! Kitchen and bathroom on 2nd floor and may be shared if 2nd floor apt is rented.

The space

Cozy third floor attic space that feels like you have fallen into a nest! Large fenced in yard w hammock. Plenty of parking. Walking distance to anything you might need and just 2.5 miles from downtown Portland and Willard beach. Free yoga classes taught by the owner of studio (one class for one person each day depending on schedule). Please check out my other listing for more info about the building and neighborhood and you can also rent both apts for larger groups. Very private spacious rental that is pet friendly. Large space on 3rd room area with comfy couch big enough for small kids to sleep on. Queen sized bed. A small room connected to use for a tv room, dining space, game room, or extra bedroom. Separated by a curtain. Currently has a smart tv as well as two overstuffed chairs and a tv w lots of dvds. Blowup bed stored in closet if you need. Shared kitchen and bathroom on the second floor with doors in between giving all privacy. Dogs are welcome and there is a nice big fenced in back yard with lots of furniture. The green belt walkway is just across the way for running, biking, walking. Linens included. Bus stop just out front. Two bicycles are available for use, but I can't guarantee them in any way as they have been worn greatly in last couple of seasons. No cable tv but tv and dvd player with some dvd's available also wireless internet available. It is on a busy street but I have only had one complaint as it dies down at night and you can drown out the sound with a fan. There is off street parking but you can also park on Broadway or Elm if you have more then one car. $50 cleaning. 3 night minimum stay. Much less expensive than any hotel and closer to beaches!
Please be aware that this is a older house and somethings are out of my control but I will always do my best to fix any problems that may arise. Also this apt is on the 3rd floor so not a great fit for those who have a hard time w stairs.
You are looking at the listing for the 3rd floor apt only, if you want to rent both floors giving you the whole house and two apts here is the link...

Interaction with guests

It's like having your own apt as it's the whole third floor. You will be sharing the kitchen and bathroom on third floor with guest who rent the 2nd floor apt. Large fenced in yard which you may catch me in if I'm around doing chores.

Other things to note

You can also rent 2nd floor apt along with this one if you need more space or don't want to share the kitchen and bathroom area.

This is a real Airbnb find - full of character and right above a lovely yoga studio if that floats your boat. A bit out of the centre and on a main road so not particularly local feeling but definitely accessible.

Sophie's eye for detail make her place a real pleasure to stay in. Although I didn't get to meet Sophie (she was away during our stay) she made herself available over email and was very helpful and thoughtful. I would recommend this place to people as it was comfortable and stylish.

If you're looking to be close to everything, but be "home" in a very chill place, the Nest is it! Has a very vintage, funky vibe. We would definitely stay again! Sophie was communicative, friendly, helpful...and left us eggs and fresh veggies from her garden!

A great place that is less than a 10 minute drive / Uber into downtown. We got into town much earlier than check in and Sophie was able to get us in around midday. Very soft and comfortable bed. Would highly recommend to anyone heading this way.

A woderfully curated space that definitely lives up to the name "the nest". Super cozy and in a chill location. With Sophie's many recommendations, i had a great time exploring Portland.

Sophie's best was perfect for our Labor Day weekend getaway with or pup! The location was very convenient for our days trips into the city of Portland. She was great at communicating with us and making sure everything was okay with it stay. All of her suggestions were incredible and really made our stay even easier. Thank you again Sophie for everything we will absolutely be back. :)
