Available June 14 and following - due to an unexpected change! STAYS COOL ALL SUMMER!! This is a shared private residence in a normal neighborhood - not a Commercial BnB...so no nightly stays. it is casual and comfortable. Fussy people best stay elsewhere, lol. It is true that the house is being sold. Consequently Guests are expected to be neat - do not leave Dishes out on counters, or personal things strewn about. Other will walk thru all areas any daylight afternoon after knocking. This IS your Notice that this could happen any reasonable daylight hour, from this day on: June 16, 2014.
Thanks for your patience while a new Washing machine is being found...(please overlook the awaiting laundry) - OK to do hand wash in the basement utility double sink, and either use outdoor hanging rack, line or the Dryer.
Weekly or Monthly stays only...This is a quiet residential area - NOT a commercial BnB. House could be sold, with 30-45 days notice, summer 2014. A Broker Photo session will happen in mid-June TUESDAY 10 AM - and also a Broker OPEN HOUSE - THURSDAY - so rooms need to be kept neat during your stay. Broker Tours will be needed daylight afternoons...they won't touch your things...except possibly ONE day for the Photo staging. Ask for a storage options if needed please. Most Guests are gone then - and I will try to reach you - and NO ONE will enter a room with a closed door without Knocking/requesting permission. TY.

Sleeping rooms tend to be cool in winter, which is HEALTHIER than over-dry air.

Use the LOW setting and Turn off if leaving the room. please, and always OFF when using another power tool like vacuum or microwave on the same circuit. TY

To use Fireplace, get wood or a compressed log (they last 3 hrs and do not need any kindling) from Parkrose Hardware on Sandy, or help with the harvest from the back yard. Be CERTAIN the Damper is open before lighting, and close the metal screen EVERY time you leave the room, for safety.
If you prefer to get a Presto Log or a bundle of dry, split logs (from Gateway Fred Meyer or Winco), there is already plenty of Kindling and newspaper here for starting fires (to the right of the Fireplace, and more Kindling under the Carport. if you get dry logs for a traditional fire, just help break up some branches, and carry them in. 5 Gal Buckets with handles are there to protect your clothing.

If you stay longer than a week, consider helping to sweep, mow, or do other light housework to help keep the shared home decent. TY Please relax and Enjoy!

One person said the upper Master is too dark for her. There are light and bright rooms here also...many find darker better for sleeping...and schedules vary.

-house is full of clutter , feels kinda abandoned
Over all, the place is fine for people with low overheard and who aren't too picky.
I had just moved to Portland and Julie's place was very convenient to get settled. The room was comfortable, the privacy was greatly appreciated when overcoming jetlag, and Julie was extremely helpful with tips and information about Portland. I would definitely recommend her place to anyone looking to move to this fine city.
Julie was a good host. She was very welcoming when she showed me around the place. I was working a lot during my stay so I didn't interact with Julie much but, the house was good and I had everything I needed during my stay.
I had a great month long stay. I was really busy and only used the place to sleep for the most part. It was perfect for me because I had my own entrance into the basement. There was also my own personal bathroom and shower. Overall, I had a great stay and Julie was very accomodating.
HOME!! CANDIDLY SPEAKING JULIE IS ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE PEOPLE THAT I HAVE EVER MET. SHE'S COMPLETELY WELCOMING, UNDERSTANDING, PLEASANT, AND COMPASSIONATE. MY STAY WAS BEYOND TIMELY AND EXTREMELY RELAXING. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A WONDERFULLY COMFORTABLE SPACE TO RESTYYOUR HEAD FOR A FEW DAYS OR LONGER IN PORTLAND, HER HOUSE IS CERTAINLY IT. I'M VERY THANFUL FOR SUCH A TREMENDOUS EXPERIENCE. JULIE'S HOME IS INCREDIBLY DELIGHTFUL AND A MUST STAY. THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!
Great host! I would recommend staying with Julie, she was very helpful in learning the city and had great recommendations. She even was kind enough to invite me to a potluck, what a great host!
The bus stop was literally a few feet from the door to the house and was a fantastic way to explore Portland- Using the marvelous Trimet Systems. Didn't catch much of Julie, but she seemed nice. =] The room was pretty cold, even with the hot weather outside, but then again, it's a basement. One of the few issues encountered: You heard everything the minute anyone woke up, which made sleeping in difficult (even with us 7am-er's). A few other minor things, but it was a fantastic spot to see the city from as all we really needed as a shower and a bed.
Julie has her own busy social schedule, but was accessible and helpful when I needed to get settled in. To say she is a local-knowledge guru is an understatement. I suggest you start a conversation with her to learn something new! Julie was a very pleasant host.
Julie's basement is the perfect place for budget-minded travelers. It's spacious, has everything one needs, and extremely convenient to public transit. And Julie herself is a very gracious and accommodating host. Just an excellent stay.
Our stay was reasonably nice. The room was quite spacious, more like a studio. There's a table to eat at, a bathroom and shower with some toiletries to accommodate guests. Julie was a very sweet host and overall the stay was pleasant and peaceful.
