Our well-loved two bedroom Woodstock home is walking distance to the bus, coffee shops, restaurants, and a park.
Our sweet little house is warm and inviting. It fits 3 people easily. The space has hard wood floors, a fireplace, and a fenced yard. We are a young family with 2 energetic girls. The house is filled with toys and art projects on display. We are on a quiet street full of single family homes and just a blocks from Woodstock Boulevard. It is just a short drive/bus ride to Division, Hawthorne, Belmont, Sellwood, or Reed College. We are not fancy people and our house reflects this. The house is definitely lived in. It is hard at work as a functional home to young kids. You will find it to be a place where you can be comfortable and relax.
What is in our home?
Our home has 2 separate bedrooms for you to use. The master suite is upstairs and has a queen size bed as well as a crib. The washer and dryer is uniquely located in the closet of the master suite. Unfortunately there is no air conditioning, but there is a fan to help with the heat. The children's room has a single bed, changing table, and a lot of toys. Please treat the toys with respect. The kitchen has an electric stove, dishwasher, fridge, and ample counter space for food prep. It is stocked with all of the things you would expect to find in a family kitchen (pots, pans, french press for coffee, knives, baking dishes, mixing bowls, etc…) The eating area is in the kitchen or, weather permitting, in the back yard. The living room has a fireplace as well as games and books to enjoy. The bathroom is inlayed with mexican tile and has a gorgeous mexican sink.
Our house is unique because it offers you a quiet retreat from the city, while also being close to major attractions. It is easy to take in a show downtown or head to the Gorge for beautiful hiking.
Who's house is this anyway? Our family consists of me and my two young daughters. I work in social work and spend my down time playing with my daughters. We have a lot of fun together and hopefully the space reflects that.
Guests will have access to the entire house minus one room which will be closed. Guests will be staying in the main house and will not have access to the basement apartment which is rented out separately. The tenants are lovely outgoing people, but please respect their space. You will have access to two bedrooms, a living room, bathroom, kitchen and fenced yard.
Interaction with guests
Most times we will not be home. For people staying longer we might need to pop over a couple times during your stay to collect mail, check on the cat, do lawn care and water the houseplants.
Other things to note
There is a cat in the home. His name is Joe-Joe. He's an independent guy who can come and go through the cat door. He may want to sleep on your bed or cuddle in your lap. He can freely go in and out the door. There is a good chance that he will greet you each time you return to the house. The neighborhood kids know him by name from him greeting them as they walk to school. His food and water are on the kitchen counter. I will leave enough food for him during your stay.
Quiet hours are 9pm to 8am.
We have a cat, so no additional pets please.
Vegetarian cooking in the kitchen please.
This should be obvious, but no illegal activity.
