Welcome to our beloved home built in 1910 in the lovely Sunnyside neighborhood!
We love our home and have worked hard to make it not only comfortable, but also beautiful, creative & relaxing.
INSIDE the home features 2 bedrooms & an office (on 2nd floor), two with queen beds and office with twin bed with new pillow top mattress (or couch if twin mattress is not needed). The attic bonus room is on the 3rd level and has surround sound tv with cable and blu ray dvd (plays regular movies, too) player. This bonus room has a large sectional couch and more seating as well as a view of Laurelhust park from the northern window. An air mattress can be found in the attic if needed. An air mattress can also be found in the attic if needed. There's plenty of open space on the first floor and all the amenities you could need during your stay as well as access to the back yard. The great stereo system can be connected to your phone or computer for streaming on the tv in the living room or stereo and there is also a turntable and outdoor speakers should you want music while you're outside, but please be mindful of the neighbors. The living room tv is not connected to cable, but has HDMI for streaming capabilities.
The kitchen is large and fully equipped with gas range, microwave, dishwasher, fridge & ceiling fan as well as plenty amenities such as pots, plates, wine glasses, etc. you need for meals. You can also access the energy efficient washer and dryer in the basement through the kitchen door. The dining room has a very large table that easily seats 4-6 people at its smallest and can be extended to 8-10 if needed.
OUTSIDE you have access to the large front porch when you feel like watching the people walk by & be surrounded by the fragrant jasmine or the more private back yard oasis complete with plenty of seating, dining & lounging options, gas grill, garden edibles for your meals, gas fire pit table, and soaking in the large 6-7 person spa with beautiful artwork as your backdrop. For those rainy days, the front porch and side & back decks are also completely covered. Enjoy naps on the super comfy daybed found on the side deck and use the hanging heater when it gets chilly.
Guests have full access to the home & yards during their stay with no other guests or homeowners on the premises. If you are pre-approved for a dog (one), an additional $100 fee will be added. Dogs not pre-approved will result in additional fees and security deposit withheld.
You will have complete privacy in our home, however will be able to access us at any time should you need anything.
While our pups will not be here during your stay, it's important to note that we have two dogs that are most definitely a part of the family, Nina & Simone! We will absolutely prepare and deep clean the home for all arrivals, however if you are very sensitive or allergic, you should know this before renting our home. Also, while we love kids and they are welcome in our home, it is not really child proofed for younger children. Our niece and nephew have always loved & preferred staying in the attic on the large sectional couch, in tents, sleeping bags & on the air mattress. It's very cozy up there and has a wall heater and we install a window a/c unit during warmer months. The house does not have central air, however it does not get very hot in the house on most summer days when keeping blinds closed and doors & windows shut. We do install a/c units on the 2nd floor as well as the attic, which work great. There are also ceiling fans in all the bedrooms which help with circulation. The house has thick walls, so if windows & blinds are kept closed during the hottest parts of the day, it is completely manageable. The first floor can actually feel cool as you come in from outside. The hardwoods and slate tile on the first floor help with this. In addition, we have plenty of stairs, so please consider this before renting. We have stairs to the front porch, to the 2nd floor & bedrooms, to the 3rd floor attic & basement if you plan to use the washer/dryer, so please consider this as you make plans.
We are so excited to share our home with you. We are opening up our one and only home to you and ask that you please keep that in mind as you enjoy the home and amenities. Please respect and care for the home and leave it in the same condition you found it.
Note: Pricing to ensure accuracy. Price per night is for 4 people and the additional fee is applied for each person over 4 for each night. In Portland taxes are applied separate & in addition to nightly rates and other fees, which come up separately. Dog fee is a set one time fee of $100.
No smoking inside or near doorways, please. Ashtrays can be found outside. We will consider dogs with prior negotiation and with additional pet fee. Smoking indoors or bringing a dog without prior approval will be an automatic forfeiture of security deposit & in the case of dogs, plus the additional dog fee. No cats please as homeowner has allergies.
Please take your shoes off as much as possible when you are in the house especially on the living room rug and as you head upstairs to the carpeted section of the home.
There is street (free) parking, there is no driveway or garage.
We ask that no large events or parties are held here and that normal common-sense quiet hours are respected. We love our neighbors and want to continue to respect the entire neighborhood.
Please enjoy any games, books, records, etc. but please leave them at the house. We will provide these and a few other helpful items for use while you're here, however all of these remain with our home. If you break or damage anything, please just tell us. We'll work these matters out with you.
Please tidy up and return things as you found them. Additional information and rules such as recycling, composting, trash days, shut down steps, etc. will be provided upon confirmation and you'll find a manual at the house.

My husband, our pups Nina & Simone and I feel very fortunate to live in SE Portland. We've been in our home for over 14 years and in Portland for longer and love it here. We also enjoy traveling and take our pups with us whenever we can and thought we could offer this same option to others. We've put a ton of love into our home and want to share it with others and hope this will also help us with getting to see more of this amazing world and what it offers.
In addition to world travel, we enjoy hiking, swimming, snorkeling/scuba, great cities with equally great art, restaurants and unique individuals. We love all animals and incorporate travel with our pups whenever we can. We look forward to hosting you and hope you enjoy your stay in our own personal home!
