Cool, cute basement apartment.

The space

This is a private apartment in the basement of our home. A friend was living there and moved out recently, so we are renting it a bit over the summer. You a have a full kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, two bedrooms with queen beds, a living room and a dining room with a piano. I want to make sure you know this place is a basement, so there is not a lot of natural light. The bedrooms both have windows but the kitchen and living/dining room do not. There are plenty of lights and it doesn't feel dark, but if you need a lot of natural light, this is not the place for you.

Guest access

You can use our wonderful sprawling yard.

Interaction with guests

I will not be home for the July dates, but my aunt will be staying upstairs and will be available. My partner and I and our two kids will be around for most of August if you are staying with us then.

Other things to note

We are on the 75 and 10 bus lines, which stop right outside our house. The 75 connects to dozens of other lines. The 10 doesn't run on weekends but goes directly downtown and takes about half an hour. We are close to the Woodstock shopping area, which has restaurants, bars, two grocery stores etc. Another room is listed in our house if you are a bigger party.

Kate's place was exactly as described, in fact it was larger and more spacious than I anticipated. The beds were comfortable and the place was perfectly clean. Nicely decorated in an uncluttered way, with a few thoughtful additions such as crayons and some coloring books for my two year old. The location is super convenient with grocery stores, shops and restaurants all within easy walking distance. Quiet location and a very relaxing neighborhood with beautiful trees and gardens. It was easy to get into the city centre and find our way around. The biggest highlight was Kate and her fantastic family, they shared their garden and time with us and gave us lots of fabulous tips and ideas for Portland, they were warm, welcoming and fun. I would totally recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a quiet spacious and relaxing place to stay, well set up for families and longer stays as well.

So spacious and the kindest hosts! We really appreciated being able to find such a great location that was family friendly! The basement space was so nice and cool on those really hot days - so lucky for us! Kate and her family are lovely people!

Kate has an amazing yard with multiple places to sit and enjoy the beautiful plants and atmosphere. Everything was as expected and an enjoyable experience. It was awesome having the property to ourselves for a few days, as the basement accommodations are subject to noise from upstairs. The basement was clean and cool with sufficient furniture for working. Adding a solid door for the slotted bathroom would make sharing with co-workers a bit more comfortable. The whole neighborhood is beautiful and there are grocery and restaurants all around. Kate accommodated our electric vehicle and was a wonderful host!

This is such a great, cute spot to stay in SE Portland! Can't recommend it enough. The owner is delightful, hospitable, and very friendly. It was very clean, easy to come and go as we explored the city and they were flexible with our odd travel times. Loved the accordion, piano and millennium falcon they had for art as well! ;)

Aller chez Kate fut vraiment sympathique, spécialement avec nos deux enfants. Le jardin est très accueillant ! Et l'accueil qui nous a été fait à été très chaleureux et sympathique ! Le logement est très Grand. La deco est minimaliste mais chaque objet est chargé d'une âme et d'une histoire. Nous avons été très heureux de passer par ici et nous sommes sentis très bien ! Merci pour les attentions : snacks, livres pour enfants et permission de jouer aux instruments ... ps : il y a une sorte de petite cabane dans le jardin .... really kids friendly !
