About this listing
Walk to amazing restaurants and shops while being close to public transportation to get you almost anywhere in Portland. Generally just have a great time exploring our great city!
This is a great studio in a wonderful SE Portland neighborhood. Full kitchen, bedroom with a queen size bed, bathroom, and a pull out futon in the living area. Recently renovated with a little bit of the "Old Charm" bungalow saved. There is a private entrance in the shared back yard for guests with plenty of space for outdoor relaxing. I live on the main floor of the house with my two small dogs and two indoor/outdoor cats. There is a shared laundry area for host and guests. The back yard is full of lounge chairs, swings, vegetable garden, bar/lounge in the detached garage and cedar chipped back yard (great for bocce games). The back yard is shared by host, her friendly pets and guests. My dogs are never out playing and running around without me supervising them....but the cats climb trees and lounge as they please. Please make sure you love animals if considering staying here.
This neighborhood is full of Portland's finest restaurants including: Pok Pok, Whiskey Soda Lounge, Sunshine Tavern, Savoy, Little Big Burger, Eva Jeans, Hedge House Brew Pub, Hopworks Urban Bicycle Brewery, Cibo, Bar Avignon wine bar, Clinton Street Theater and even Pro 300 Bowling Alley....all within walking distance.....and many many more....too many to list.
The Division st bus line (#4) is a few blocks away, and the Powell st bus line (#9) is two blocks from the house. They can both take you all over Portland.
Smoking okay, only outside.
Although it is not air conditioned, it stays very cool with new windows, insulation and plenty of shade trees.
Our neighborhood is "a bustle" of all kinds of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Super fun!
Buses are within a block or a few to get you all around Portland.
Be kind, courteous, and generally respectful. Only smoking outside. Open minded people and families, that are comfortable with communal enjoyment of the back yard, while having their privacy in their cool and comfortable studio. Please make sure the back gate is closed upon entering and exiting. Courtesy quiet time for neighbors is after 10pm and before 8am. Thanks!!
