About the property

Completely private detached entire home. A modern design oasis nestled between forests of bamboo and pine yet steps to restaurant row on both Williams and Mississippi. This house has been carefully architected down to the last detail: light filled with over a dozen windows yet all of them private / sky view or bamboo views! completely secluded and spacious and airy with 20 foot ceilings and everything you'd need. Sip coffee on your enclosed bamboo lined patio, walk to Portland's best foodie restaurants and shops! Mere Steps to restaurant row on N Williams and Shaver and bustling bars shops restaurants on Mississippi. Full kitchen, new bath, genuine mid century furniture and (real) art by local artists and a location that can't be beat! You are in for a true Portland experience here! I have lots of tips and recommendations too, but only if you need them: It would be my pleasure to host you! (note, all of the photos of restaurants, shops and bars are all less than 5 min walk away!)

About The Owner

I'm a designer here in portland and live with my sweet husband Tom and our boy Felix. Tom and I are originally from Canada and proud to call Portland home. We love making, cooking and enjoying this super fun neighborhood!

Why The Owner chose Boise

Well, it's hard to beat finding your own peaceful little house in the middle of all that Williams and Mississippi have to offer! Portland is just the right size, you're never more than a 5-10 min drive or bike ride from anything! And if you need anything during your stay, Tom and I are just steps away in the big house. We built this one you're looking at less than a year ago, it was a passion project for both of us, and are super excited to share it with people wanting to visit our wonderful city! All the windows have been strategically placed to ensure ultimate privacy with lush views of trees and greenery. There's plenty of free street parking out front also!

What makes this house unique

Quiet little sancutuary after a full day of exploring and eating some of the best food out there! Also has a nice little private patio out back with string lights, if you just want to kick it and stay in

Sweet and Stylin' MCM Studio

  • 5 of 5

We loved this Mid Century Modern Oasis -in -the- backyard ! When the front door closed and only trees could be seen out of every window it seemed like you were in a peaceful cottage in the woods. Props to the owners' great sense of style : items of vintage electronica , carefully curated original art and monochromatic textures punctuate the modern white and polished concrete interior. Wanted to move in and stay indefinitely! Hope to come back to explore more of PDX after this short visit and will definitely try to book this place again.

PS A and T's recommendations were spot-on for our culinary adventures which included brew pubs, eateries and food trucks.

You cannot go wrong staying here.

Great decor, super clean and well taken care of!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Portland and we loved our stay here! We had everything we needed and more. The high windows in the bedroom had us feeling like we were sleeping among the trees in the middle of the city. The only thing I was hoping for and couldn’t find- was info on fun spots or good eats nearby. But we managed just fine (since you can find all that online anyway). Also thought that the neighborhood was a little run-down, but we never felt unsafe or had any issues. Overall, we had a great time and would highly recommend this house!

Clean, Cool, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the place and would definitely rent it again. It's a quick drive across the river to downtown Portland, but the neighborhood is plentiful on its own - lots of fun joints within walking distance. We ate at some great restaurants just by popping a few blocks over. The inside is clean, modern, and contemporary; the pictures are totally accurate. Plus, Ashley was extremely enjoyable to work with. She's super helpful, friendly, and accommodating.

Great Location! Beautiful guesthouse!

  • 5 of 5

This place was beautiful! Very stylish mid-century modern design, very comfortable bed, and the perfect place to relax after a big day exploring Portland. Within walking distance of great shops, restaurants, and bars. Fun neighborhood, and visiting the rest of the city is easy by Lyft. Private entrance to this guesthouse, as well as its own little private backyard made it feel very private, but if we needed anything, the owners were always reachable via phone, and were quite helpful. They even left us a bottle of wine because we were celebrating our anniversary. Can’t say enough good things about this place! Thanks for having us!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Ashley,

We loved your guest house! I enjoyed looking at the artwork that filled the space and it had great light and a warm feel to it. The amenities you provided were very nice and the rain shower was lovely. We will be back next time we stay in Portland.
