About this listing
This is a daylight basement, but it's has plenty of space, good lighting, and great views. All windows face north. Kitchen sink faces Mt St Helens!
Asian theme playing off Portland's turbulent past with a network of secret pathways downtown.
This is the daylight basement to the main house. It has a separate entrance and it's own parking area. The main drawback of this space is that you will hear foot traffic from the main house above, which is why I've set the price lower to compensate.

Interaction with Guests
I typically let guest check themselves in and out unless they want the tour. :) I don't see them during their stay unless I'm working outside on the house or landscaping.
It's a quiet and remote location that's peaceful and brilliant. Up here, we get a bit more sunshine than the lowlands, so the days are just a little bit longer.
There is no public transportation. You will require a vehicle. This is a very rural location, but it's only a 15-20 minute drive to downtown restaurants and shops as reviews also indicate.
-Smoking is not allowed in the house or where it could bother other guests. There is lots of space to smoke on grounds.
I had a chance to explore the neighborhood while locating the house, beautiful. My favorite part of our stay was the location. We climbed Mt St Helens this trip, so it was inspiring to see her each morning from the kitchen window. Sauvie Island is about eight minutes from the house, and it is gorgeous. Nice beach, amazing mountain views, fresh fruit, and friendly people.
I met Brian briefly, warm and friendly.
Yes, you will hear the neighbors above you. We were out quite a bit, so it was not a big concern.
What a gorgeous location! Peaceful, yet an easy drive into the city. Brian was super easy to communicate with and very responsive. The unit has everything you need!
Really appreciated the variety of kitchens 'staples' in the cupboard, whether left by Brian or previous guests, they provided that little bit extra to make us comfortable. Loved the large living and bedroom, and the kitchen/dining was perfect for the 4 of us to linger over coffee.
I had a great time in this location. It was clean, beautiful, well stocked and private. I felt like I had my own private retreat. The views were lovely. I would stay here again
Brian welcomed us when we arrived and even provided us with some pastries for breakfast. He was available for any questions that came up. This is a nice little getaway amongst nature but as disclosed in the description, there was quite a bit of noise from the upstairs guests - although, there was a large party that overlapped with our stay this time which probably made it much more noticeable than usual. Brian gave us a heads up when we arrived and encouraged us to let him know if it was too much so he could let the other party know. My friends and I were attending a wedding in Scapppose so it was the perfect location and still close to Portland. We would definitely go back, thank you!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful location! Brian was accommodating to our large group, which helped make our event a success. Prior to and during our stay, he was prompt, clear, and communicative. The home and its surroundings are everything we hoped for and expected based on the online description and pictures here on Airbnb. Lovely home and view in a relaxing and conveniently tucked away location just minutes from downtown Portland.

About the Host, Brian
I'm an artist with a variety of "real" jobs. Most of these are in property management. I really enjoy making vacation and getaways and the occasional "save us while our house is being remodeled" possible.
