About the Property

4 Bedrooms 2 Baths With Solid Bamboo Floors-Single Level

We are a legally permitted 4 bedroom short term rental house! Permit #LU 15-267213 CU. We are a registered business with, and pay lodging tax to, the City of Portland (TaySoif LLC). If your booking is on a weekend, please stay four nights.
The four bedroom two bath main house is for guests; we have a tenant in an apartment upstairs which has its own entry and deck.

The perfect house for family or friends, centrally located in the perfect Portland neighborhood. Diverse, rich in culture, excellent food and drink, on transit lines and totally walkable, you won't even need a car we have two or three (single file) off-street parking spaces if you do.

You may not host events including more than twelve people here. Quiet hours must be observed. Please be friendly, it's a friendly street. Our tenant manager lives in a separate apartment above the house, and she has accepted the responsibility to monitor the quiet hours (10PM to 8AM) and occupancy rules.

Awesome clean beds and pillows, and a clean, comfortable, well appointed, great-smelling house in a vibrant neighborhood. Central air! We LOVE to make our guests have the vacation or short term stay they want.

We may negotiate rates if certain dates are not booked, or for a smaller party (1 or 2 people)

This is an urban neighborhood. It's diverse. Most, but not all, of the houses have been restored. You may encounter a panhandler or people with petitions. If these things alarm you, it's not for you. You may want to look in Irvington or in the suburbs. For us, there's everything to love about the Alberta Arts district. Creative and cool, friendly neighbors, fabulous food, flat, walkable, and bikeable. We have Alberta's 'Last Thursday': the divine arts fair on the last Thursday of every warm month, when they close the whole street and the artsy spirit of PDX is in full bloom... Fall in love with Portland here.

We restored this 1970's ranch in 2013 (and again this year when we built the apartment) to give it a geometric, clean, inviting style. Quiet, solid bamboo floors run throughout the house, and every appliance is Energy Star, all the bulbs are LED. It's super private, and the living/outdoor spaces do not intersect with the upstairs tenant's area at all. The front porch is a great place to watch the neighborhood walk by, and the big back yard has a beautiful gazebo with two couches and dining table with umbrella. All for you.

Free wifi.Comcast cable, Netflix. Fully equipped kitchen with such staples as sugar, spices, and oil, cleaning supplies, paper towels, napkins. A private code for each party in the internet-controlled locks. Two bikes with helmets and locks. A charcoal barbecue grill.
It's SUPER important that you realize how much we value the quiet and peace of our neighbors, did I mention that? We understand that you may be on vacation, but they are not. You are their guests in their neighborhood, too.
Public transit is just half a block away!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hi, I'm Amy. We've been in Oregon 20 years and we love it! We live in a suburb just south of Portland. We bought this house in 2011, gutted it, outfitted it with the greenest solutions we could (solid bamboo floors with a quiet layer of insulation underneath, Energy Star heat and A/C, high efficiency appliances. We love to spend the night here too!

Why the Owner Chose Alberta, Portland, OR, USA:
If you know Portland, you know this is the spot. It's diverse, colorful, safe, friendly and fun. You can walk to either corner in the morning for an awesome cup from Fuel Cafe or Extracto, spend a great day in and around Portland, and at night, amble home from the Tin Shed or any number of other establishments within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We chose this property for its location. It would be hard to find a better one. You can walk to everything, from great food and groceries, to shopping, to public transit. The house is not grand, or deluxe, but it is super inviting with its clean lines and beautiful finishes...the wood floors, the good beds, the open kitchen/living area, which is perfect for groups. We followed that aesthetic in remodeling the front patio with its geometric blue stone and granite path and patio, and a pergola. The front porch and the back yard, weather permitting, are great places to enjoy. The back yard is landscaped with a covered gazebo for those warm months when you'll appreciate the shade. The tenant's upstairs apartment does not intersect with your living space at all.
