About this listing
Available July 15 through November 12th, 2017. Your perfect sublet!
Full of charm and perfectly located, you’ll love this private home, steps from Alberta Arts District with its acclaimed food, galleries and shops. Sunny day? Read on the front porch, wander Alberta (maybe some ice cream from the famous Salt and Straw?), then pick from the veggie garden and grill on the back patio. Rainy day? Cozy up by the fireplace.
Welcome to your home away from home in Portland’s most unique and exciting neighborhood! Comfy, cozy and lovely, this private craftsman bungalow that sleeps four will be all yours—the perfect base camp from which to explore. For starters, you’ll be mere steps from Alberta Arts District restaurants (we’re foodies, so please feel free to ask for recommendations—the possibilities are endless), boutiques (fab jewelry, hot shoes, adorable dresses galore), galleries, breweries, parks and more. On Sundays, you can even saunter down to the local King Neighborhood farmer’s market and stock up of the freshest veggies for the week!
In short, the location is ideal; we’re not only walking distance to all that Alberta has to offer, we’re just 10 minutes to the heart of the city, and a walk, bike ride or quick drive to other fun neighborhoods including Mississippi Street, Hawthorne and the Pearl. Also just 15 minutes to/from the airport.
The house itself features amenities including an upstairs master bedroom and bathroom with a huge double-head shower; office/guest bedroom with a queen-sized American Leather Comfort Sleeper (read the reviews—it’s as comfy as any bed!); second bathroom on the main floor with a clawfoot tub (aaaaaaaah); full kitchen with everything you need to whip up tasty morsels with your farmer’s market booty; large dining table; two sitting areas (one set up for TV/movie-watching and another perfect for fireplace-enjoying, games-playing, reading or napping); veggie garden (help yourself!) and a lovely back yard garden patio and grill.
- Groceries including natural (Portland’s own New Seasons, Whole Foods), traditional (Fred Meyer, Safeway) and co-ops are all nearby;
- Close to yoga studios and several gyms;
- Located two blocks from a major bike route; bike rentals just up the street;
- Bus lines within blocks of the house;
- Off-street parking and plenty of free street parking with no time limits;
- Your furry friend is welcome here, just chat with us beforehand please.
This home is available from mid-July to mid-November, 2017. We are ideally looking for one sublet for a minimum of three months, but are open to inquiries about an extended stay for part of that period.
We look forward to hearing from you!

The whole house is yours!

Other things to note
Please no smoking anything inside the house. Smoking outside is fine.
Melissa and Jeff are avid foodies and outdoor enthusiasts. We eat, backpack, hike, bike, eat, run, climb, camp, road trip, and eat. We've also been known to down a pint or two from one of Portland's great microbreweries on occasion. Oh, and eat. That's why Portland is our perfect home--and we'd love to share it with you!
