About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Eats, beats and treat right around the corner!

This sun kissed lower level of the duplex, daylight basement apartment with 4x5' south facing window in cheery living room and a 4x4' south facing window in the cozy bedroom. With even temperatures, it's naturally warm and cozy in the Winter and cool in the Summer.

It's secluded, yet around the corner there's an abundance of marvelous restaurants, live music, shopping, cool lounges and micro-brews up the yin-yang! The nearest pub is a mere 300 ft away as is a local coffee roaster for a sharp joe to kick in the day's fun!

SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS, if you have time:
Bedroom cradles a comfy pillow-top Queen bed.
Living room can unfurl cozy full sized futon from the sofa for added guests.

Crisp, clean, simple décor. Complete with towels, bedding, appliances and more. Just bring your tooth brush and your enthusiasm to enjoy yourself!

Seek an adventure or just hang out in the backyard with flowers and very feral veggie garden. Have a BBQ. Read a book. Write a book or screen play.

Most guests travel with their laptops and use them to watch movies and augment their indoor entertainment, so we don't invest much in transient technologies like TV's, monitors,...

Again, veiw our video to view both levels of the duplex.. The video link is on this site. If for some reason, you can't find it, let us know and we will happily email you the link!

We market our properties in a variety of ways and manage our booking calendar offline,. Please inquire with us for availability and other fine details!

We typically respond to every Inquiry within a matter of a few short hours. However, sometimes the site can 'forget' and drop notifications, so if you don't hear from us, give us a jingle 503-704-4050. Feel free to do so if you'd simply rather talk directly with us. We'll love to hear from you either way!

Thank you for choosing Mississippi Fun District Garden!


Check in is 4p.m or after. Check out is at 11a.m or before.

Once you book, we can discuss logistics such as your arrival time. If we are around when you are scheduled to arrive, we love to meet and greet, so we will greet you, show you around and answer any questions.


If you are not enjoying yourself, you are doing something wrong. We can help you with that! :)
