About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Detached studio stand-alone home with a king bed and a kitchen built by us 2008.

Detached studio stand-alone home (17ft x 20ft), built by us 2008. It has a king bed with kid gear if needed. It also has a full bath and a full kitchen (convection microwave oven instead of a conventional oven). Location is fantastic!

My husband and I (along with the help of generous friends) built this unit in 2008 when I was pregnant with my first son. We added the kitchen mid-2014. The unit is extremely well insulated and has radiant floor heating under the tiled floor. There are a lot of great details...including the hardwood trimmed windows and the vertical grain Douglas fir double entry door.

Please message me to confirm availability before booking directly. I try hard to keep the calendar up to date.

King bed and optional pack-n-play and high chair. Also have a blowup bed. The unit has accommodated a family of 5 before.

Full bath contains a tiled shower with overhead rain and traditional handheld shower heads. Bathroom sink is an inset copper sink. No tub in the shower.

Kitchen contains keurig coffee maker with coffee. Kitchen also has a full fridge, induction stovetop for cooking, eat-in island and is stocked with supplies for cooking and some basics.

Room also has a large flat HDTV screen with cable,wireless internet and a Blu-Ray DVD player with Netflix access.

The unit is in our backyard where my husband's green thumb shows during the right time of year. Lots of windows with blinds for privacy.

Location is great...walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, bike shop where you can rent bikes, trails, etc... There is plenty of street parking.

Guests will have access to our backyard. There is a gate to our backyard with a walkway directly to the unit.

Our interaction with guests vary and it really depends on the guests. We are happy to share Portland tips and our favorite spots. We spend a bit of time on our back porch in the summer time. We have 2 little boys so we spend a bit of time playing outside with them and love to visit while we do.

Our neighborhood is a fantastic walking neighborhood. You can walk to restaurants, starbucks, grocery stores, etc... It is really unique to Portland and it gives you a great sense of what Portland has to offer. It is also very close to other Portland attractions by either bus or a car.

There is a bus stop 2 blocks away and light rail (MAX Orange Line) is walking distance (15min walk) away!! There is also parking available at the nearest MAX stop if you want to park and ride. MAX will take you all over town...downtown, to the zoo and more!

There is plenty of street parking.

Best way to arrive from the airport is either by rental car, taxi, or max then bus.

Guests will have access to our backyard. There is a gate to our backyard with a walkway directly to the unit.
