Our big well-lit mother-in-law apartment was remodeled in 2013 to accommodate visiting family & AirBnBers! It has a separate entrance and is in the heart of the incredible Ladd's Addition, Hosford-Abernathy, Hawthorne, and Belmont neighborhoods.
Our location is super close-in to downtown Portland and has a walking score in the 90s, with multiple brunch spots, a pizza joint, a bar (with free pool!), a bakery, year-round farmers market and fresh meat and fish shop all within 2 blocks. There's a bus stop a half-block away that can get you right to downtown Portland in minutes, plus ZipCars and Car2Go cars throughout the neighborhood as well as on-street parking.
There's 1 bedroom with a comfy queen bed that sleeps 2, but we've also left a blow-up mattress and sheets in the closet under the stairs so that you can add some extra folks if you'd like. Add in a couch that's nice to sleep on (but not a fold-out) and you've got plenty of options.
The apartment is appointed with a full kitchen, including a gas stove, microwave, coffee maker, tea pot, refrigerator, washer & dryer, and toaster. Plenty of cooking accessories so you can take advantage of the farmer's market and prepare fresh food at home if you'd like.
While there's plenty to explore in Portland, the apartment also has a 42" plasma flatscreen TV with cable, a Playstation 2, Netflix and DVDs and a big L-shaped couch when you're ready to tuck in for the night. Even sweeter, there's a 3-person SAUNA for when you want to get toasty. We will have fresh towels and linens ready for you when you arrive. We look forward to sharing our great location with you!
We provide you with a code to get your key and from there, it's your own separate space for you to call home while in Portland, you've got all the amenities you need and there's no sharing necessary.
We will likely be present when you're here, but you may not see us - you can let yourself into the separate apartment with the lockbox code provided and everything is self explanatory. If you have any questions just email, we'll knock on your door to say hi if we're around and give you some tips!
The sauna is a big hit for our visitors! 15-117016-000-00-HO
Originally from New Hampshire, I moved to Portland, OR with my now husband after living in Ecuador for almost 4 years where I served as a Peace Corps volunteer. We started calling Portland home in 2010, added a pup to the mix in 2012 and a daughter in 2016.
We absolutely love our city and love sharing our city with others! We are both avid travelers and have used Air BnB to stay all over the country (mostly for friends' weddings) and remodeled our basement in 2013 to a full apartment so that we can host family, friends and travelers.
