About this listing
The first thing you need to know about our airbnb offering is its ideal location ... 99% on the walkability charts. Located "close-in" in Southeast Portland, just south of Hawthorne Street, you are only a short walk away from literally hundreds of Portland's famous eateries, coffee&tea shops, grocery stores, entertainment venues, fun shops and more! The bus stop is only two blocks away should you want to travel to places beyond your walking stamina. The house is on a tree-lined street with two gorgeous parks within easy walking distance (Mt. Tabor and Laurelhurst Parks).
This basement studio apartment is private and roomy with a fully equipped kitchen, newer full bathroom with hand-tiled shower, large flat screen TV with cable and Apple TV, queen size bed and excellent WI FI. A washer and dryer are available for your use also. The back door entrance of our house takes you directly down a flight of stairs to your flat.
Please know this is an older home and that you will hear some floor boards creaking occasionally, although we are not a rowdy couple when it comes to noise.
Two cats live here, Leo and Priscilla, but most likely you will only see them outside unless you're here long enough to win their trust.
(We limit the number of overnight guests to two.)
No cigar or cigarette smoking, no pets, no parties.
We ask that guests check-in between 4 - 9 p.m., and check out by noon. If different check-in/check-out times are desired, please email me to see what the possibilities are.
Kitchen appliances should remain unplugged when not in use and two should not be used at the same time unless you want to risk being left in the dark.
The wall heater will heat up the studio very quickly, so always make sure it is turned off when going out.
When checking out the apartment should be left unlocked and the keys left on the kitchen counter in the apartment.

I am a somatic therapist, specializing in biodynamic cranial therapy and the Rubenfeld Synergy Method. My husband, Martin, is retired and plays at writing fiction and finger-picking his guitars. We love living in Portland.
In 2013 my husband and I spent a month traveling in Europe and stayed with several AirBnB hosts. Each place we stayed in was unique and wonderful, as were the hosts. We came home excited to become hosts ourselves.
