Our yellow bungalow is a great jumping off point for exploring Portland. Our house is within minutes of downtown Portland, Division Street restaurants, great brunch spots, Aladdin Theater, Sellwood, Hawthorne District. You’ll love our place because of the neighborhood, the park right behind our house, the comfy beds, the coziness, and the kitchen. Our place is great for couples, business travelers, and families (with young kids). Looking for specific dates? Feel free to ask. We're semi-flexible!
This is our historic 1923 bungalow in the heart of Portland. This house has 4 bedrooms (2 upstairs and two on the main floor) and can sleep up to 8. It's great for two families with small kids. Full spacious and well-equipped kitchen. Unwind in the cozy living room and dining area. Don't forget to enjoy the hammock in the backyard! The house is centrally located in the neighborhood of Brooklyn in SE Portland, and a short ride to downtown Portland on bus or light rail! Within blocks you'll find excellent dining, 24 hr fitness, coffee shops, shopping, the Aladdin Theatre and everything you could possibly need.
You have access to the BBQ grill and patio furniture in the backyard if you'd like. Washer and dryer is available.
Interaction with guests
We are available for directions or tips on making the most of your time here in Portland. As this is our home that we rent out while we're out of town, we most likely will not see you but we are accessible by phone, text, email. We'll happily help as much or as little as you'd like. We also have wonderful neighbors who look out for our house while we're out of town.
Other things to note
This is the main house and in the basement there is a separate apartment with a long-term tenant in it (a friend of ours). The apartment has a separate access and excellent sound proofing.
Also, please note that there is only one bathroom so groups of more than 4 adults gets uncomfortable. We also charge $10 per person/night for each guest above 4 people. This helps cover our utilities, additional cleaning costs and wear and tear.
As per Portland Short Term Rental Permit policy we do not take groups with more than 5 unrelated members. We also don't take groups with more than 5 adults also as it's not a great fit for our house.

Summer guests please be aware that our house does not have central air conditioning. This is not uncommon in the Pacific Northwest. We do have some portable air conditioners for your convenience if needed.
We're born and raised in the great Pacific wonderland! We've lived and worked in Portland for about 6 years and LOVE it. We're happy to show off our great city and make your stay as memorable as possible. We've traveled all over the world (Mexico, Croatia, Africa, Costa Rica, Germany) but are happy to call Portland home. We love our neighbors and we think we get the best of both worlds...urban living and a backyard!
