Quiet SE Basement Vacation

House - Entire home/apt · Southeast Brooklyn Street, Portland, OR 97206, United States

This is a fantastic space for the summer time if you don't mind being in a basement. It's cool and dry, no mold, not the average Portland basement.

There are 2 very large (400 & 500 sq ft.) bedrooms.

Your host, John

The Space

Welcome to a sweet space in beautiful SE Portland, minutes away from Mt. Tabor, where you can hike, see downtown, Mt Hood, or enjoy the reservoirs.

This space has 2 very large bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen.

It is a basement. So it's wonderful in the summer. It keeps nice and cool all summer. There is not a lot of day light, but there is plenty of electrical light.

The largest bedroom is over 500 sq. feet with a wood like parquet floor and a fireplace. There are 5 daylight basement windows that let a lot of light in. There's a library, a TV with DVD player, a desk and chair, and a comfie Queen sized pillow top bed.

The second bedroom is a suite; one room has Asian style sitting with zafus and meditation pillows, and a library. The bedroom has a closet and a full sized pillow top bed.

The kitchenette has a sink, hot plate, toaster, blender, coffee maker, toaster oven, and coffee grinder. There's also a washer and dryer, $5 a load. Laundry detergent included.

There are 2 cats on the premises. They live with me. So they will be in and out. You can keep your bedroom doors closed to keep them out.

I also have 2 friendly and fun staff people who work in a small office downstairs, just off of your space. They are only there from 10am to 2pm, Monday thru Friday.

There's a carport for your bikes and plenty of on street parking.

Guest Access

The space includes 2 large bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, and a kitchenette. There is also access to the patio and back yard.

Interaction with Guests

I love hanging out with guests, but i am the CEO of a business that does require a large amount of attention.

The Neighborhood

Mt Tabor is one of the more spectacular scenic spots in Portland. You can hike to the very top and back to my place in 40 minutes.
We have local restaurants, coffee shops, and are near 82nd Ave, which has a movie megaplex and Walmart, minutes away.

Getting around

2 bus lines within minutes, both have buses coming every 15 minutes during daylight hours.

there are plenty of bike paths.

there is a great car share program called car2go.

  • My stay in Johns home was great, a peaceful sanctuary. John was very warm and welcoming, very helpful and polite. He is a great host and has a beautiful home.

I'm a health professional, interested in living a healthy, happy, long life. At this point, i'm vegan, simple eating, but i love a place with a kitchen i can use. And the ideal place has a bathtub! I also host my home in Portland, and have met some incredible people. I currently am the CEO of the All About Health Network, an e-commerce business dedicated to promoting the benefits of massage and body rolling. i was an avid rock climber until i realized it was beginning to jeopardize my dancing career (post modern). I teach yoga, yamuna body rolling, soul motion, all easy forms of moving your body and staying healthy. I've taught everything from 6th grade Earth Science to College Health Science to Couples Massage.
