About this listing
A great place to enjoy the charm, local food, and original neighborhoods of Portland with easy access to everything!
Modern amenities blend w/old home charm in lower level 1 bd apt in 106-yr-old renovated home. Highly walkable area 2 blocks from transit, Whole Foods, cafes, and coffee shops. Space has its own washer and dryer and full kitchen. Free off-street parking space. Minutes to Alberta, Pearl, Downtown, Moda. Comfy queen bed. Second cushy single bed from sofa conversion for third guest.
The apartment has its own easily accessible, keyless entrance and offers a cozy queen bed with soft linens and loads of pillows. Quiet and restful haven near the city center. The second bed is a day sofa conversion and makes into a comfortable single bed for a 3rd guest. If you need the two beds made up for a two-guest reservation, please let me know when booking so I can ensure it is ready for you.
One free off-street parking space included.
The space is outfitted with a microwave, range and oven, fridge with freezer, coffee maker, and electric kettle. Utensils, pots, pans, dishes, toaster and blender are in your kitchen for your convenience.
Wireless internet is fast and easily accessed.
House-trained, well-behaved adult dog is allowed. When requesting to book, please let me know a bit about your dog and if you have more than one traveling with you.
Being on the lower level in a big, old house means you will hear the creak of wood floors above you, the occasional sound of water through the pipes, and other people in other parts of the house (although your space is insulated). Generally the house is pretty quiet most of the time with specific quiet hours from 10 pm - 6 am, although there may be some noise as people occasionally enter or exit in between these times.
The apartment and home are bone dry spaces no matter how much rain we get! :) But for fresh Portland air, the windows open easily. The home is air-conditioned and the apt stays quite cool even in the hottest summer heat. However, a fan is in the space for a breeze if you prefer it, and a heater if you need it.
This space is perfect for guests looking for an oasis in the center of Portland with easy access to all parts of the city. If you are coming for an event or for some R&R, or you need to get a lot of work done, this is a well-located, comfortable accommodation.
You are welcome to use the seating on the old-fashioned front porch.
Interaction with guests
Feel free to ask for recommendations around Portland or for anything you need related to the space. If you would like to have a chat over tea or coffee, just let me know! I'm happy to talk with you. :-)
Other things to note
The main house is home to a very sweet rough collie (like Lassie). He is well-behaved for a puppy and typically only barks when he wants to go outside or someone comes to the door. He does have doggie door access to the backyard space so please do not open the back gate.
Well-behaved dogs can be accommodated if prior arrangement is made but no cats or other animals please.
Quiet hours are between 10 pm and 6 am.
This home is maintained as a smoke- and drug-free property--this also means no smoking out windows, outside the door or in the driveway, patio or porch.
This is a shoe-free space--please take off your shoes upon entering.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
