Property description

Welcome to our ranch style home in SE Portland just South of Mt. Tabor 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

Two large bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom with a porcelain tub and shower accommodates 6 people in 3 beds. Air mattresses for 2 to 4 more available upon request, plus comfie sofa and love seat in the living room.

The largest of the 2 bedrooms has a queen size pillow-top mattress. The spacious room measures 12' x 15' with a large walk-in closet. There is also a desk and office chair, a small reading library and handheld percussion massager (also available for purchase).

The second bedroom also has a queen pillow-top mattress, walk-in closet, desk and ergonomic office chair, and handheld percussion massager (also available for purchase). It measures 11'x15'; plenty of room to walk around.

The house 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. Condiments like salt, pepper, oil and vinegar are always available. Local coffee and oatmeal available for breakfast.

There is a dining room area with a cherry wood table set for 4, plus extension available. There is a larger-than-life size Buddha statue from a temple in Cambodia in the corner, brought over from 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.

PLEASE NOTE: Hot tub in photographs of backyard NOT operational at this time and not included in rental.

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.

There are 2 cats on the premises, but they are not in your living space. They are usually outdoors or in the garage. There is also an operating business in the garage, where 2 people work from about 9:30am to 3pm Monday thru Friday.

The downstairs may be rented to another group, unless you choose to rent the whole house. You can ask to have that space made 'not available' for a fee. Then you would be the only ones in the house.

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

I've been successfully renting this property for 4 years now. I can help orient you to the city and the best places to visit while you are here.

In the living room there's a whole basket full of maps and coupons and reviews of places to visit and see around Portland and the rest of the state. It's an easy drive from my home to the beach, Mt. Hood, or the Columbia Gorge.

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.'"
