Property description

Welcome to our ranch style home in SE Portland just South of Mt. Tabor. It's on a quiet tree lined street with plenty of parking.
Recent testimonial:'We spent a wonderful weekend at this house. The place is very clean. There were 4 of us staying at this place and we had everything we needed. There were plenty of parking space and the neighborhood is very safe. But we didn't need the car that much as the bus service is awesome in Portland and we were able to get to downtown and back late at night.' Mikhail K

There are 3 large bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom with a porcelain tub and shower. So there is room for 6 people in 3 beds. Then i can provide air mattresses for 2 to 4 more, and there's a comfie sofa and love seat available.

The largest of the 3 bedrooms has a Queen sized bed with a very comfortable pillow topped mattress. The room measures 12' x 15' with a large walk in closet. There is also a desk and office chair, and a small reading library.

The second bedroom also has a Queen sized pillow topped mattress. And a walk in closet, desk and ergonomic office chair. It measures 11'x15'.

The third bathroom has a full sized, pillow topped bed. It also has a dresser, a desk and ergonomic office chair, and measures 11'x15'. It has a reading library of fiction, metaphysical, and non fiction books.

Each bedroom has super high speed (30mbps) internet/wifi.

There is a full service kitchen with all the amenities, including microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, blender, and juicer.

There is a dining room area with a cherry wood table set for 4 people (there is an extension available to widen the table). There is a larger than life size Buddha statue from a temple in Cambodia in the corner, remnants of a retreat center the owner founded many years ago in Portland.

The living room has 2 sofas and a plasma HDTV with cable, including HBO and On Demand. There is also a DVD player.

There is a patio that is a wonderful place to sit and hang out, and a large backyard with a National Heritage Sequoia Tree, a pear tree, and a gingko tree. There is also an organic garden, with fresh tomatoes and other vegetables.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a mandatory damage waiver fee that is $49.50 and protects you for up to $2500 in damages.

There is a daylight basement on the premises, which can be part of the rental. it includes 2 very large sleeping spaces, a bathroom/shower/sink, and a kitchenette. This space is separated from the main floor by a door that can be locked.

Usually the owner is living in that area. It has its own separate entrance and exit.

As of June 1, 2015, there will be no more cats, no office, and i will no longer be on the premises. That will assure you more privacy.

The downstairs may be rented to another group, unless you choose to rent the whole house.

Important: During the week, until June 1, 2015, there are a few people who manage my business from a small office in the basement. They are usually here from 9:30 am to 2pm. They also have access to the garage, which is used as our warehouse.

The washer and dryer are in the downstairs section of the house. You are free to use them; it's $10 a load, and that includes the detergent. You may have to speak with John and give notice to get access to the downstairs.

There are also 2 cats on the premises (until June 1, 2015), who are indoor outdoor and stay with the owner. They roam around the yard and may be available for petting. If you let them in the upstairs, please make sure you let them out at some point; they have no way out on their own.

I've been successfully renting this property for 4 years now. I've been on VRBO for almost 4 years, and half of my bookings come from this site.

Here are some testimonials from folks who have been here recently:

'John was the consummate host! He welcomed us with a bottle of wine, a piece of chocolate (dark!) and bottle of water on every bed. He was very easy to get in touch with about any questions. Parking is very easy in the neighborhood. The house is near a lively and dynamic part of town with incredible restaurants and vintage shopping. I would definitely recommend staying here'. Ali S.

'We spent a wonderful weekend at this house. The place is very clean.
There were 4 of us staying at this home and we had everything we needed.
There was plenty of parking space and the neighborhood is very safe.
But we didn't need the car that much as the bus service is awesome in Portland and we were able to get to downtown and back late at night.'
