For starters, your new house is a gorgeous, mid-century daylight ranch, located directly at the base of beautiful Mount Tabor, which is like being located on your own personal mountaintop. Seriously, you can walk out the door, across the street and begin your hike into one of Portland's most amazing attractions! Fancy some tennis? NO PROBLEM. Want to go for a run? MILES OF TRAILS AWAIT YOU. Feel like taking a jaunt through a community garden? MOUNT TABOR HAS ONE OF THE BEST! Hike, bike, run, walk or skateboard through Mount Tabor, and revel in our dormant volcano in the middle of a city. Did I mention there's a community pizza oven?

Next, your new house has two brand new, 4" pillow-top, spa-like king beds in it. That means you can roll around and KARATE KICK without ever disturbing your partner. I'm serious. These beds will HELP YOUR RELATIONSHIP! In fact, if you check out our San Francisco listing, you will notice how often the king beds are mentioned, and we outfitted this house with the exact same beds. You're going to sleep better here than you will at your OWN HOME!

And have we discussed how we just replaced the plumbing and electrical in the entire home, too. Your new house has the best water in the city!

Oh, and you have your own yard with a small, almost dead garden (I'm a terrible gardener). Invite your friends over to mock my gardening skills and throw an impromptu BBQ!

But what really sets your new house apart? Just look at the pictures. We have seriously worked our booties off to give you a one-of-a-kind experience while in Portland, and the house shows that. From the original art to the hand painted faux taxidermy to the stocked Kuerig to the hand towels, we have thought of everything. Since we've been hosts in SF for so long, we know with trial and error what guests are looking for, and we've made sure to incorporate all of that in this house, too.

You're going to love your stay, Future Rock Star Guests!

Guest Access

Everything, from the coffee to the parking to the laundry unit, we want you to feel that this is your home away from home.

Interaction with Guests

That's up to you! We love having brunch with our guests or to share a cup of java or a hike with our dogs up Tabor. But if you'd rather not see us, no problem. We can stay completely out of your hair or be your next best friends - you hold all the cards!

The Neighborhood

Montavilla is one of Portland's trendy new neighborhoods, with eateries, bars, vintage stores, theaters and old-school hipster barbershops! Just a five minute walk from the house, you can dine, drink and shop it out.

Plus, since we are right no Burnside, and not far from the freeways, we are centrally located and super close to local destinations:


* Hawthorne: 5 minutes
* Division: 7 minutes
* Downtown: 10 minutes
* 23rd street: 15 minutes
* Portland Airport: 15 minutes
* Sauvie Island: 20 minutes
* Multnomah Falls: 25 minutes
* Bridge of the Gods: 35 minutes
* Wine Country: 45 minutes
* Mount Hood: 60 minutes
* Oregon Coast: 90 minutes

Getting Around

There's a few options:

Ample parking at the house.
The bus line to downtown is 1 block away. It's a 15-minute bus ride or a 10-minute drive to downtown.
The Max is on 60th and Glisan.
Uber or Curb. They're phone taxi apps.
Multiple car-shares readily available. Our favorite is Car2go. Download the app and find your ride!

Other Things to Note

-- Please keep in mind this is a mid-century, multi-level home, and as such there will be creaks and older house-noise. You will also be able to hear the pitter patter of our pups on the hardwood floors, as well as footsteps. We put an extensive amount of insulation between the two floors, but if you're sensitive to such things, this might not be the ultimate listing for you! If that's the case, we have many others for you to choose from!
-- Please let us know you're bringing your dog. We are HUGE dog lovers and are happy to host yours, and we charge a nominal fee to be able to do this, which goes straight to our amazing cleaning team! Small dogs under 20# only, please.
-- Commercial video and photo shoots are strictly forbidden without prior and authorized consent. Associated day-rate fees, liability waivers and copyright contracts will apply if consent is given. Please note photo shoots done without prior consent face penalties of up to $1,000 a day.
-- We have a three-night minimum on the weekends.
-- There is ample street parking at the house, and only five stairs and a short path to navigate from the street to the entrance!

House Rules
No smoking
Check-in time is 5PM - 2AM (next day).

-- Due to back-to-back guests, I'm sorry, but we can not accommodate early check-ins.
-- Please let us know if you are bringing a dog - there are additional fees involved, and a larger deposit. Please don't make us figure out your pet was here, and force us to to have an awkward conversation with you. That sucks for everyone.
-- Please dispose of all animal waste responsibly. Seriously. Do not leave dog poop in our yard. That is super rude!
-- PLEASE let us know if your pup has an accident in the house so we can properly clean!
-- Please consume or take all leftover food. The city of Portland only picks up trash every other week, and food beckons little critters and bugs!
-- PLEASE turn off all temperature controls and lights as you leave.
-- Please be kind. We've had guests who weren't.
-- Out of respect for our lovely neighbors, please quiet down on the patio by 9:00pm!
-- The recycling is located under the sink. If you begin to develop too much trash, there are master cans in the carport at the front of the house - please feel free to use these! Black is garbage. Blue is recycling. Green is compost. Yellow is glass. Hm
-- Please make sure to park on 72nd near the staircase for the easiest route to the unit!
-- Please let all guests know to go to the back house so that our dogs don't go into hysteria with every knock on our private door.
-- Commercial video and photo shoots are strictly forbidden without prior and authorized consent. Associated day-rate fees, liability waivers and copyright contracts will apply if consent is given. Please note photo shoots done without prior consent face penalties of up to $1,000 a day.
-- Most of all, have fun and enjoy beautiful Portland, Oregon!

Ryan and I are awesome. Can I say that? No, we truly are. Most people like him a bit more than me, but only because he can drink more than I can and says things like "Let's get AWESOME!" and "Who's having SHOTS WITH ME!?".

While we used to host in rooms in our houses, we now are able to offer three full houses - one in San Francisco, and two in Portland - for your traveling pleasure. We take great liberties to make sure our homes are more comfortable than any hotel will ever be, focusing on Temperpedic beds, fully-stocked kitchens, local artwork, outdoor areas and fluffy bath linens. We have been doing this for a while now, and have a grip on what our guests are looking for: luxury while still being local. Our reviews speak for themselves - read them and feel confident in your decision to stay with us!
