You'll so enjoy this super comfortable and thoughtfully designed private downstairs living space. With a separate entry you can come and go when you like. You'll get to enjoy the lovely outdoor patio with amazing light, with lots of plants surrounding and great shade on the hot days - we even have a hose & sprinkler to cool off too!

The space is anchored by the white brick fireplace, white plank walls, a large mid-century sofa & coffee table, wool rug, and large floor lamp.

If you're staying in the winter: you'll be cozy as the fire crackles late into the evening & you finish your glass of wine! The real cozy bed is soft to the touch, complete with a Schoolhouse Duvet and comforter & Pendleton Wool blanket on top -and extra wool blankets to cuddle up) on a chilly night.

Soak in the amazing natural light that streams through the large windows all day! Open them up to get a nice breeze inside and stay cool in the summer. Close the curtains if you fancy a mid afternoon nap.


Why should I stay with you?

Well that's your choice, but we hope you've read our reviews :) we can say that if you stay with us, you will guarantee some really sweet, unique and exciting memories.

How about your cats?

Other than the fact that they are so cute and uber soft to the touch - they are fun, easy-going, and good with new friends. You're welcome to interact as much or as little as you want. We just ask they stay on the main floor.

Guest access

-Is it private?

Yes! Totally!
We've outfitted the ceiling with sound insulation and sound resistant windows to keep the room private and cozy :) the door to the main part of the house is thick and blocks out the kitchen and rest of the house sounds.

- Do I need to keep my door shut?
Yes, we expect all guests to keep the door shut unless coming upstairs or downstairs.

-What's the bathroom situation?

On the main floor there is a bright, fun and clean bathroom for you to use. We are the only ones at the house most of the time. We are flexible on when we take showers so please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any specific needs!

Interaction with guests

We will do our absolute best to make you feel at home by offering you a safe & comfortable place to rest, plan your vacation or get some work done!

Whether that means you stepping into our slice of Portland life as we introduce you to our favorite sights, local spots, and hopefully our favorite people too - or just follow some of the recommendations we give you - You will see Portland through an awesome lens.

We love to welcome guests and learn a bit of their stories, as well as share with them about us, the neighborhood, and overall experience of living in NE Portland!

We do the above by usually sharing a coffee or tea with our guests :) so if we are around and our schedules can line up - let's make it happen!

Since you'll have your own private entry to the place so we won't always see each other. You can have as much interaction as you'd like to have with us we just ask that during the work weeks our guests understand that we are usually working from home and like to focus. We love to live busy & active lives so you may not see us much at all.

We will likely be at home during your stay, but regardless we will do our best to make sure it goes as smooth as possible. We will also be very aware of making sure you have the right blend of interaction and privacy! A great way to make this happen is by keeping your door closed to the upstairs :)

We know all the local coffee bars, fresh markets, places to walk, eat, and everything else. We will be as little involved or as much involved as you want us to be, just tell us!

Other things to note

There will be clean towels provided and you can use our shower and bathroom :) at any time it works for you.

We will leave you a pitcher & cups for water, and feel free to store anything cold in our fridge, use our sink if you need to wash anything up. We can also talk about using the toaster or putting something in the fridge if necessary.

Ask us about using our washer / dryer, we're always doing laundry!

Colin and Sarah's studio was cozy and quaint. They were both very communicative and kind to work with. The apartment was conveniently located close to a really lively and fun area, Alberta! The shared bathroom was way less awkward than I expected, it was actually very private. I truly enjoyed my stay! Thanks, you two!

It's the small, finishing touches that make this place so excellent. You won't be disappointed!

Beautiful, spacious room with plenty of bright, natural light. Loved getting a little work done out on the patio between exploring Portland's neighborhoods, shops and restaurants! Check in and out was a breeze. Quick note: Only one bathroom in the house upstairs, off the kitchen. While this never created a "problem" of having to wait for turn, etc., it was definitely an adjustment for us :) Overall, very cute and comfy!

Colin + Sarah's place was great for my business trip needs. Quiet neighborhood with plenty of great things to do in an easy to get to vicinity. Their place itself was great, the room was very cool and the pour over coffee ready to brew in the morning was amazing. Definitely would recommend to solo or couple travelers to PDX.

Staying with Colin + Sarah was a dream. The space is lovely and comfortable, and they are incredibly warm and welcoming. Colin even shared some coffee with us that he had roasted himself! The neighborhood is very quiet, so after long days out and about we were able to sleep super well. The location is a short walk from all the shops and eats on Alberta, and at the same time very convenient to the airport.

I had a really good experience staying at Colin + Sarah's place. The room was well designed, clean, and located close to the airport. The hosts communicate well, provide a detailed guide to the city, food, attractions etc. and readily reply to any queries or questions you may have. I totally recommend the place to anyone! Thanks Colin and Sarah for making my trip enjoyable!

Colin + Sarah User ProfileColin + Sarah is a superhost.

Oh hi there! We are Colin & Sarah!

We absolutely love hosting, traveling & the opportunity that airbnb gives for us to see the world, meet incredible people like you, and have unforgettable experiences. We've been hosting for three years! Our approach to hosting is all about good relationships, good design, and a love for life. We look forward to the chance to meet you :) send us a message if you have any questions!

Our last few years of travel include our month in Europe, weeks exploring North and South Island New Zealand, a cultural study of Israel, documentary shoots in Zimbabwe, Uganda, and India. A long awaited family safari in Kenya, and more shoots in Ireland, China, and Mexico, a road trip around Australia with a first time diving experience at the Great Barrier Reef, and a getaway to Cape Town, South Africa.

We have a heart for thoughtful questions, well-crafted coffee, life on the go, new places, and creativity. We are creatives & storytellers working in digital and analog mediums.

Hotel concierge's are let's face it, out of date, and don't really tell you more than you can find on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). Friends help you know a city like the back of your hand, they help you find those places that will leave a mark on your heart. Let us stay in your place and we will surely be friends! Let us host you and you'll be back soon enough wanting to visit again! We love the airbnb community because it's a really special way to get to know a city.
