About this listing
This charming tiny house, once a vintage garage, has been remodeled into a peaceful backyard get-away. It comfortably fits four and is located on a quiet street just blocks from restaurants & cafes. Full kitchen is great for cooks.
This charming open-beam tiny house is an all green, remodel of existing vintage garage using 100% sustainable and reclaimed materials. It includes a fully stocked cook's kitchen, with refrigerator and four-burner propane stove/oven for making delicious meals at home or heating up leftovers from Portland's yummiest restaurants. Open floor plan includes vaulted open-beam ceilings, breakfast nook and living area for entertaining and relaxing. Upstairs is the sleeping loft/bedroom with double bed, tall ceilings and two big windows. For extra guests, pull out the futon couch in the downstairs living room area. The cottage includes a private garden entrance & outdoor sitting area for relaxing before or after a long day. For local food & fun, we are just down the street from Portland's up and coming Foster/Powell & Woodstock Neighborhoods with cafes, vintage shops, restaurants, NWIPA bottle shop & several yoga/dance studios. The perfect place to relax with friends, visit with family or come and go while seeing the city.
The backyard garden tiny house is located a few blocks from public transport to downtown shopping, museums & theaters, as well as the Mt. Tabor Park for hiking & biking & the historic SE Hawthorne shopping district. MAX line to & from PDX International Airport.

The neighborhood is very international with a Russian Deli, Asian Grocery Store, several Mexican food places, an Argentinian Tango School, NW Bottle Shop, Historic Theatre Venue and several cafes and restaurants all within walking distince. It is quickly becoming one of Portland's fastest growing neighborhoods.
The #14 (Hawthorne District) and the #17 (Downtown) Buslines both pick up within a block of my house. The #14 also takes you to the MAX Redline to PDX International Airport.

About the Host, Wisteria
An Oregon Coast Native, I love living in Portland and being an AirBnB Host. My grandparents are from Baltimore, and I went to college in Virginia, so I have a touch of the East Coast sensibility. I live and work from home as an actor and a puppeteer. I've lived as far flung as Germany, Hawaii and Costa Rica, but Portland is definitely home sweet home. As a host I like to help you experience Portland like a local and hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!
