Great location! Easy access to NW Portland, downtown and the west hills. Very walkable! Great space to relax in comfort when you're done exploring.
The studio is located in the lower level of our home, under our living space, and is accessed by an exterior stairway. It features a queen sized bed, private full bath, comfortable seating area, kitchenette and bistro table.
The kitchenette has a mini-fridge, microwave, sink, hot plate, toaster, coffee maker and dish ware; perfect for snacks and light meals.
The unit has good light and is very clean. You'll also enjoy a private deck with its own seating area.
You can expect to find a comfortable, welcoming space where you can spread out, relax and then explore the nearby amenities at your own pace.
If stairs are an issue, this may not be the best choice. The unit is accessed by two flights of exterior stairs.
Interaction with Guests
Come and go as you please without worrying about disturbing us as you have your own entrance. Enjoy the ability to wander anywhere downtown with ease while being nestled in one of Portland's most historic and charming neighborhoods.
I am happy to advise you as much as you want or just let you be. My goal is for you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay.
The unit includes a washer/dryer, but please ask before using it. There is also a hair dryer in the bathroom, and an iron and ironing board in the closet.
Located in the Goose Hollow Neighborhood, we are within an easy walking distance of the Goose Hollow Inn, coffee shops, cafes, Providence Park (home of the Portland Timbers and Thorns soccer teams), and NW 21st & 23rd AVE's.
Washington Park is a nice hike up the hill, where you'll find the International Rose Test Garden and the Japanese Garden. There is a seasonal shuttle service that will take you to the zoo.
It's about a mile east to Tom McCall Waterfront Park. The park overlooks the Willamette (wi-LAM-et) River and is home to most of Portland's annual festivals and large events.
Both the red and blue line MAX train stops are one block to the south. It's an easy ride in from the airport or a quick trip downtown or to the Oregon Zoo. If you buy a MAX ticket it is also valid on the bus and streetcar lines.
Please see the House Rules section for details regarding street parking and parking permits.
Other Things to Note
Built in 1913, the property is listed on the national historic registry as the Clovis House. The house underwent a complete renovation in 2012-13 and was saved as part of a development deal in order to build new townhomes on the empty lot next door.
Please note: There are several construction projects going on in our neighborhood. Generally, work takes place from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM.
Check in: 3:00 PM
Check out: 12:00 PM
If you need to check in after 3PM please let me know in advance so we can arrange a time to get you into the studio.
Street parking Monday - Friday for more than 2 hours between 7AM and 6PM, and more than 90 minutes between 6PM and 10PM is by permit only. On Saturdays and Sundays it is 90 minutes between 1PM and 10PM. If you need parking during your stay please let me know at the time of your reservation so we can make arrangements to get parking permits. Permits are $5 per day and you can pay me directly. The City also requires that you provide me with your license plate number.
We are a shoes-off home, there is a shoe-mat inside by the door.
Access to the unit is via the gate on the west side of the house. Please keep the gate locked. It tends to slam shut so closing it quietly, especially at night, is appreciated.
This studio apartment is perfect - I would say the pictures don't do it justice, it is extremely tidy and spacious and decorated thoughtfully. Beautiful location as well - we could walk to Downtown and the Pearl District with ease. Dave was also a great help in organising parking permits when we made a last minute decision to drive to Portland. Would heartily recommend!
I would highly recommend this host and location. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Dave made everything very easy and was very quick to answer questions. I loved being a 2 minute walk from the MAX, and a 20 minute walk from plenty to do. One day we walked downtown for brunch, then up to the Japanese gardens and Washington Park and back to the room. Could not have been easier or more convenient.
Nice and comfy house with all the basic essentials. Aside from the sound of wood when someone walk on top, everything else are fine.
Dave was a great host! He made it very easy to check-in and was very aware to the fact that our flight got in early and turned the apartment around quickly from his previous guests so that we could get settled in.
The apartment itself was perfect! We loved the location and all the amenities. It was a very comfortable stay and I would highly recommend it.
Dave nous a accueilli chaleureusement. Nous avons passé un tres bon moment dans son apparrement privatif et avons beaucoup apprecié la terrasse ( meme s'il y avait quelques travaux en face..)
Dave est très discret et affable.
Everything was great! The location was perfect for getting to everything, and the light rail was really easy to and from PDX.
Hi, I'm your host, Dave. I currently work as Systems Business Analyst for Portland Parks & Recreation. My family consists of one young son, Walker, and my partner, Roland, who's an engineer for the Bonneville Power Administration. We have been together since 1991 and are both originally from Southern Idaho and graduates of the University of Idaho.
We love to travel and have been all over North America, we hope to go further when our son is older. Roland has made several trips to Europe. We can appreciate that when you travel it is essential that you have a clean, private, and comfortable place to stay.
We are very low-key hosts and are very happy to advise you or leave you alone. We have Portland visitors guides and local recommendations at the ready. We look forward to your visit.
