built for the modern traveler, our home is a bright, spacious and inspiring recently renovated mid century modern/industrial home (frank lloyd wright inspired) with a serene back yard. situated across the street from beautiful woodlawn park and sandwiched between award winning restaurants and breweries (breakside- yum!), everything is within walking distance.
our home is an homage to frank lloyd wright architecture with a modern industrial twist. with a beautiful open two story ceiling in the main room and plenty of windows, it is bright and airy - a must have but rare find in portland :) it is decorated with a lot of plants and trees so has clean air. it is a very 'green' house with almost all reclaimed materials and has a 20 page document that discusses every material and design decision if you're interested. it is truly magical! it is our home (our bedrooms are in the basement when we're home, not the creepy european hostel vibe) so it is designed with quality materials and personal touches that make your trip feel much more at home than a stale rental. oh! one more thing: your bed is a new queen sealy mattress and is suuuper comfortable!
you'll have free reign to the entry and upstairs levels as well as the front and back yard (that is the whole house except the basement). we have a parking spot in front of our house, but there is plenty of parking in the street.
we travel often and use airbnb frequently. we totally get that sometimes you want to meet, hang for a bit, and sponge as many 'local' tips as you can, and sometimes you will want to be anonymous and have little to no contact with the host. we respect both options, and will always be available via text/phone if you have questions or concerns.
our 'second bedroom' is used by us as a work studio. the up side is that it is beautifully designed and has 360 degree windows and a great view of the park across the street. it is pictured with a comfortable couch that is firm enough to sleep on multiple nights. we are happy to move a full mattress (comfortable ikea) up if requested, which will lie on the floor. the couch in the living room is also firm and comfortable to sleep on.
we ask that you treat our home like you would a friend's home: clean up after yourself and be respectful of our home, property, and neighbors. also:
- please remove your shoes while in the house.
- no gatherings or events allowed unless previously approved by host
- start a load of laundry prior to departure
- clean up the kitchen
