The Space

Cabin like apartment located in Close-In Southeast Portland, under the trees on a major urban bike road. There's a little back porch off of your own private kitchen. Sweet little private bath. Large walk-in closet under the stairs & cozy little sitting room. Not a bright space, very cabin like and tucked away, cozy feeling. Hardwood floors, gas stove, reading room, dine in kitchen, all with a warm cabin feel. Fully furnished with nice linens, all your cookware & dishes, towels, bedding. Good 20 mg wifi, washer/dryer in basement, bike parking available at sidewalk level. Located close in to downtown (the river) in the older, very established neighborhood of Buckman. This place is perfect for sightseers and business travelers that want an urban experience and their own privacy. No need for a car if you're not traveling by car...take the bus, walk, bring your bike, and cabs are pretty cheap too. The #15 bus is just down the street at 16th & Morrison and will take you downtown in a few minutes or all the way over to Northwest Portland (NobHill). This apartment is in a building that's quiet and very friendly. Lots of trees & parks close by. Excellent for a personal escape, working vacation or a transitional space if moving here.
Please feel free to drop me a line if you have questions, I'm happy to help however I can. Sheila

Please Note: A CASH cleaning of $25 to be left for all stays of 5 days or less and $50. to be left for all stays of 6 days or longer. Thanks so much!

Plenty of places close by to go have a glass of wine, grab a late night (9pm) happy hour, eat a nice breakfast.

House Rules

This is a nice, chill building. People don't come to party, they come to relax or get some quiet work done or to write. Please be on that wavelength. Please don't smoke anywhere on the property (smokers usually take a little walk around the block to smoke). There is a curfew of 10:00 pm on the porches in order to be respectful of our neighbors. And please do not park next to the blue house to the North. They have 3 small children and it makes it difficult for them if people park in front of their driveway or next to their house, thanks so much.
We're an urban neighborhood so, if you're bringing a car, don't leave anything visible inside overnight or it might not be so good in the morning.
Please feel free to contact me if you need anything at all while you are here. I will be happy to help with whatever you need!
Sheila (hostess/building owner)
