The space

"A Piece of Paradise". Guests can be fully independent when staying in the Modern Harmony & Happiness House. This two bedroom "ADU" or guesthouse is bright and airy and boasts a full kitchen with large refrigerator, stove, and full-size washer and dryer. It is a completely separate and self-contained unit from the main house. Cork floors, a full kitchen, and beautifully tiled bathrooms. Both of the two bedrooms have their own separate bathrooms for privacy. Wireless internet available. Three heaters and sunshine as available will keep you toasty warm. Air conditioning in the main room and ceiling fans in the bedrooms. Seeing is believing! For a few short months, the main house will also be available for rent. This listing is under the "Tranquility House" and does have to be booked separately. The "Tranquility House" is a two bedroom home with a large deck off the back.

Guest access

The full "ADU" or cottage is yours and private during your stay. You have access to the full interior, adjacent parking spaces, fenced yard, back deck, fire pit, enclosed porch area, and covered swinging bench. You are also invited to explore the meditation labyrinth in the backyard of the main house.

We do have an electronic key pad for access to unit.

Interaction with guests

I live next door in the main house. Both residences are private and separate. As I am often not available to answer questions, I have someone local helping me manage the Airbnb. They are standing by to answer questions via cell or texts...arrangements can be made to have someone meet you at the unit.

The neighbourhood

This home is located 15 Minutes from the PDX Airport in an eastside residential neighborhood about 30 minutes from downtown, and one hour from Mt. Hood. A short distance away is a community walking trail at the Glendoveer Golf Course.

Getting around

The MAX line is about 6 blocks away at Burnside and 148th or 162nd. Buses run on Glisan hourly and Halsey more frequently. There is a parking space at the house, another along the driveway, and easy parking in front on the street. If you drive, be sure to mind the big BUMP on the entrance to the driveway, a necessity to prevent flash flooding during those Oregon cloud bursts.

Other things to note

No additional charge for children/youth under 18-years of age. Additional guests considered on a per-visit basis.

This is a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. As you enter through the front door, greeting you is an open concept living room, natural lighting and modern amenities, a cozy welcome to the beginning of your stay. The master bedroom overlooks the courtyard. Clean and modern bathrooms with simple design. Overall, it was an excellent stay and recommended for couples getaway, small group or family. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

The unit is how it looks in the pictures. There is also plenty of room for parking which we had two cars since there was 4 of us. The beds are comfortable and the layout works well. The only two issues we had were with the wifi and the guest room tv. The wifi did not work for the first two days we stayed but this was resolved after the owner was able to works out the problem with the internet provider. The location was about 20-30 min from everything (airport, downtown and waterfalls). Grocery store was close by as well. Overall we enjoyed our time in Portland and N A's was a present place to stay at.

Comfortable and unique. This is a wonderfully designed home with a great host. Communication was never lacking. We encountered a few little hiccups, such as a washing machine that would not spin, and a heavy evening rain that alerted us to a skylight leak in the bathroom located off the living room/front bedroom. It seemed like this was the first time there was a leak as there were no signs of previous water damage on the ceiling around the skylight window. We made NA aware, and the host immediately arranged for someone to come and take a look at it within a couple of hours. We had all the essentials, and then some. Both bathrooms were supplied with soaps and shampoo, and the showers/tub are amazing. The kitchen is well laid out, and had everything we needed. The home is located about a 25 minute drive out from Portland city, so if you wish to spend time in the city, it may take a bit of extra preparation and planning. Overall, this is a great choice for someone who desires a quiet home with relatively easy access to city life.

We loved our stay at this super cute home! Beds were comfy, kitchen was wonderful to cook in, and the space was perfect for our group!!! Communication with the host was so fast and easy! This was our first trip with Air BNB and it was perfect! Would love to stay again next time I visit! :)

For those who aren't from Portland, this is the best place to stay if your itinerary includes both hiking and city exploration as this location is right in the middle of both activities. 20 minutes from the city and about 30 from hiking. You can literally do almost anything from this location. The home is beautiful and all amenities needed were provided for us. The house also fits 5 comfortably if you leave the 5th wheel of your party on the couch. Don't expect a TV however, as the ones provided are pretty small. We ended up not using them as we were out in town most of the time. The host answered all of our questions almost immediately and made our stay very pleasant. Side note but I highly recommend future stayers to shop strictly at Fred Meyers as all other stores such as Albertsons or Safeway are way overpriced. We hope to stay here if we ever visit Portland. Thank you so much again for the hospitality.

The cottage is adorable and very comfortable. It's just like the pictures, with ample space. The neighborhood is quiet and not far from many destinations.

Retired from education, I am friendly, creative, helpful and have traveled enough to get a sense of what will help make a traveler comfortable. My style of travel has been researching to find out-of-the way places that require interactions with locals. Finding our way to an ancient fortress just outside of Istanbul was an incredible, memorable experience with my son and friend! I enjoy helping visitors to Portland also find out-of-the-way unique beautiful places, and have suggestions about favorite eating spots.
