Interaction with Guests
I love interacting with guests but also respect that most guests booking a private space are looking for a private experience. Any time you'd like to stop by and chat, please don't be shy to do so! I love sharing my favorite places in town.
There are three major bus lines just a few blocks away. The 6 bus is 3 blocks away (the Mason St. stop) and runs up and down MLK and over the Hawthorne bridge to PSU (and the PSU Saturday farmer's market!).
Other Things to Note
Please note that the price is discounted in the winter because you may hear the heater. Most guests don't even notice it but if you are a light sleeper it may bother you.
We kindly ask that noise is kept to a minimum after 11pm and before 8am. The same is asked of all living and staying upstairs.
