Welcome to our brand new guest house! Modern, light and airy, our place is located in the heart of NE Portland, and is within a ten minute walk to an array of restaurants, food carts, grocery stores, public transportation, bars and shops.
The house is adjacent to our home. It sits quietly in the back yard and above our painting studio. It's an open, airy and modern loft-style home with reclaimed fir floors, shelving, vanity, and doors. The reclaimed Doug Fir wood was sourced locally and has the beautiful patina of time. The queen size bed has a super comfy natural latex foam mattress and in the loft there is a fold out sofa with a full size memory foam sleeping pad (Please note that the loft is not an appropriate sleeping area for younger children due to the stairs and railing). The loft also boasts wonderful views looking out over the neighborhood and is a wonderful spot to chill out with a book or watch a movie. The art collection includes works created by the two of us (we are painters/photographers) and by other local artists. You are also welcome to come visit the art studio downstairs. The kitchen is fully loaded with brand new appliances and cookware and each guest is treated with coffee, creamer, chocolate, fruit and flowers for their stay. We are within walking and biking distance to Williams Ave, Mississippi Ave, Fremont Ave and Alberta Street, and approximately a 15 minute bike ride to downtown Portland. Some of Portland's tastiest restaurants are close by including Pok Pok Noi, Ned Ludd, Tasty and Sons, Por Que' No, Aviary, and the list goes on. Acclaimed brewpubs are also abundant including Hopworks, Fifth Quadrant, Stormbreaker, Ecliptic, and Ex Novo. There are several bus stops within blocks of our place and New Seasons and Whole Foods are both an easy ten minute walk from our house so self catering is a breeze. We have two friendly cats and a Hummingbird who has taken up residency in our backyard garden which you are welcome to hang out in as well.
Guests have full access to the house and the backyard. Guests are also encouraged to visit the painting studio when Michael is there.
The home is not available for commercial use or activities such as wedding activities/events, parties, business meetings, etc. If you are interested in photo shoots please inquire before making a reservation.
Please note *** This not an anonymous vacation rental experience. It is not a hotel. The house is in our backyard and you will encounter us from time to time as we go about our daily lives which is part of what makes Airbnb so special. Our home is your home! We are avid travelers as well and love to hear about your adventures here in Portland/Oregon.
Interaction with guests
Check in time is 3 pm and check out time is 11 am, but we try to be as flexible with guests if they need to arrive or leave earlier or later. One of us will always be there to make sure your stay is comfortable, but we do our best to give guests the privacy and space they need. We have lived in Portland for a combined 35 years so we are full of recommendations for places to eat, activities, bike rides and must sees. We are always available by phone/text to answer any questions or help out if needed.
Other things to note
We are family/kid friendly. We have a 5 year old daughter ourselves. There are two parks within blocks of our place to take the little ones. A library is close by. There are also several businesses that cater to kids and families such as the POA Cafe, OMSI(Oregon Museum of Science and Industry), the Oregon Zoo, and The Children's Museum.
Maximum # of guests= 3 adults. Or 2 adults and 1-2 children.
The sleeping loft is not suitable for smaller children due to the stairs leading down to the main floor and the bed's proximity to the railing. We do have a pack and play and can set up a bed in the living room for smaller children who cannot sleep in the loft.
