This completely remodeled basement bedroom and bath has a private entrance to allow you to explore this wonderful city by bike, bus, MAX, or car. A 10 minute walk to 3 grocery stores, dozens of restaurants, and year-round farmers market make it easy to explore the culinary delights of Portland (plus we have a fridge and microwave for your use). Free on-street parking in our quiet, residential neighborhood.

The space

Enjoy your own private home away from home. The space is great for 2 adults. Pets are welcome as long as you clean up for them outside (we do have chickens and a cat).

Private bathroom with shower, kitchenette (microwave, fridge, kettle, coffee/tea), and dining table. We have a large TV monitor with a DVD player that can access wifi to stream Netflix (your own account) and YouTube (we don't have a TV connection). You should have everything you need for a comfortable stay, include use of our washer/dryer.

You will also have access to our side yard, which has a private garden/seating area just for you. We are planning some landscaping changes in 2017, so things may be under construction during your stay.

Guest access

24-hour access with a private entrance. There are about 12 stairs to the basement (new wide stairs); you'll pass by our workshop and laundry room to get to your suite.

Interaction with guests

The comfort of your stay in our home is very important to us. If you find that something you need is missing, please do not hesitate to contact us directly and we will do our best to provide it. We are constantly improving the suite to incorporate feedback from our guests.

We are also happy to provide you with additional information about the neighborhood and other attractions in Portland.

Other things to note

During the week we wake up at 5 or 6 a.m., so you may hear us getting ready for work if you stay during the week (including grinding coffee and making smoothies). During the weekend we try to stay quiet until 8 a.m.

Brandy and Matt’s pad is very clean and in a nice neighborhood. You can walk down the street for a coffee or to the Trader Joe’s that is close by. It’s right next to the freeway and fairly close to everything. The actual space is big enough for a couple to share comfortably. The bed is nice and comfortable as well. I highly recommend staying here and my wife and I will definitely be back. Thank You!

The place is true to it pictures. Nice place to stay for a couple or single persons, comfortable bed, it was a little cool the first couple of night and it was nice to a space heater to warm the room up. The location is great, easy to get to, quite residential neighborhood with easy parking. If you are traveling by public transit the light rail is a 10 min walk away and Trader Joe's is right across the street. Brandy was constantly check to make sure our stay was going well. Thanks for hosting us!

Everything about Brandy's place was amazing! She was always extremely responsive and communicative with us. The location of her place is prime, really nearby to the freeway as well as good restaurants and coffee shops. Would definitely stay again when I come back to Portland.

Brandy and Matt were so so thoughtful and warm in how they set up the room for visitors unfamiliar with the area. The whole vibe was "how can we give you everything you may want" from the communication and last minute request, to the helpful guides in the room, to the use of anything i may need, and directions on where extra towels/blankets etc may be in the little basement unit. A true hospitable experience, and thoughtfully arranged. I loved my 2 nights there with my dog. I would have stayed longer if they weren't already booked.

We're both partial to Oregon, having grown up here. Brandy loves knitting and other crafty pleasures; sweet treats; and exploring cities. Matt takes care of our chickens, loves making home a better place, and cooking. We remodeled the house during summer 2015; tearing everything …
