Guest access

Parking space in front of house in driveway.

Interaction with guests

We have an extremely kid-friendly, but quiet cat (Simon) who lives in the house. He has his own cat door off the kitchen and comes and goes independently. If you are not cat friendly this is not the right fit house. Simon uses the outdoors as his bathroom. All we ask is that you check that his hard food bowl is full each day, and his water bowl.

Other things to note

Did we mention we have a cat that lives here? Oh we did? Yes, maybe a couple of times? Sometimes people do not read the full description. You, however are not one of those people. I like you already.

House Rules

While we hope that all the people we host will be courteous and respectful of our space it probably doesn't hurt to outline a few things. We do our best to provide a clean and comfortable environment for our guests and we please ask that you respect the following house rules:

No guests outside of those who were on the original reservation allowed in the home.

ABSOLUTELY (excuse the caps) no pets allowed. We already have a cat who lives (indoor/outdoor) here to meet all your pet needs. He's beyond special. If you do not like cats please do not rent our house. No disrespect to your cat disliking ways.

We have a strict no party rule for our house. We live in a quiet residential neighborhood - we like and respect our neighbors.

Please be courteous with noise while outside.

No smoking inside or outside our home.

Please do not eat outside of dining area while inside. We'd like to keep our couches and carpets crumb and stain free.

Please leave the house as you found it, clean and tidy. Please wipe down countertops and take out the trash.

Please leave shoes at the door. We love our new bamboo floors and want to keep them in good shape.

Quiet time after 10pm.

We are pretty damn friendly - if you have any questions or concerns please ask. We want this to be a great experience for everyone.

Be kind. Unwind.

Great place, clean, tidy, close to great coffee, local bar and food carts, supermarkets as well. Easy communication with hosts before and during our stay, made us feel right at home! Thank you Tim, Susie and of course Simon the cat!

Our host, Susie, was fabulous! She was so accommodating and helpful--we couldn't have had a better experience! The house was AWESOME, the neighborhood was great and Simon, the cat, was the cutest and friendliest kitty around. If we ever go to Portland again in a group, we will definitely want to stay here! Everything about it was perfect for us. Everything:) Thank you, Susie, for making our 40th birthday celebrations a success! Until next time...

I had a late arrival, but my cousin had an early arrival. Susie was able to accommodate my cousin's early arrival and gave her a warm welcome to Portland and her home. Not only did Susie give her the tour of the house, but she also provided a very helpful binder full of information about her home, e.g. how to access the WiFi, use the record player, etc. She also recommended places to eat at and visit in Portland, which we totally appreciated as many of us never visited Portland prior to this visit. For the rest of my cousins and their spouses who stayed with us at Susie's home, they particularly loved Simon, the cat who resides at the home. I think that was the cherry on the sundae as they are HUGE cat lovers, and Simon just helped make our stay a lot lovelier.

This was an amazing place to stay, and the pictures, while nice, simply do not do it justice. We stayed for 5 days with two families, and there was plenty of space for everyone. While it is the hosts' primary home, they did a good job in clearing out personal things and were very easy going about letting kids play with toys, grownups play with the turn table, etc. The downstairs room is actually an entire spacious suite, with a queen bed in its own nook, a large living area, and a full bath. The main living area and deck on the upper floor of this split level home are utterly gorgeous and a delightful place to hang out. And the pool is wonderful! While there was a lot I wanted to see and do in Portland, this house made me want to just stay at home. Thanks so much to the hosts for a great experience!
