The Space

Studio C is a cozy and quiet, private studio in a charming and clean 1908 building that was originally a boarding house. This room has a queen bed and is on the top floor (second story of the building) It is perfect for the solo traveler or a nice couple. This quaint, high ceiling studio has a sink in the room, as well as a microwave & small fridge in the adjoining pantry. The kitchen & living room are shared with the other guests and the bath is down the wide, wood floor hallway. Feel free to interact with the other travelers or you can stay to yourself and no one will interrupt you at all. This is not a party house, it's great for a personal retreat, a business trip, or as base from which to explore the city. There is a lovely balcony in the trees to enjoy, overlooking the sidewalk and urban bike traffic. Have your coffee and relax in the tree tops.

I'd love to have you come and stay. Sheila

PLEASE NOTE: A $25 Cleaning fee to be left in envelope in room at check out. Thank you so much!

Guest Access

There is bike storage in the sidewalk level basement, there's a key on a hook in your room. There is a washer & dryer to use for a small fee ($1.50 ea). Street parking available right out front. If you need extra storage just let me know as there is room in the attic or over at my house down the street if you are moving here.

Interaction with Guests

I would never knock on your door or bother you in anyway during your stay but I may see you in the common areas as I come to spruce up things. If you do ever need me I'm just a phone call or text away and I live just down the street.

The Neighborhood

The WalkUps are in the Buckman neighborhood in Inner Southeast Portland. It's just minutes to walk to the river that leads downtown. Or if you feel a bit ambitious you can walk to the shops/bars/restaurants on SE 28th Ave or Hawthorne & Belmont Streets. This is an artistic neighborhood with lots of trees & bicycles and people buzzing. Coffee shops, wine bars, food carts, vintage stores, and indie movie houses. I think it's the best neighborhood in Portland.

Getting Around

The #15 bus is just down on the corner of 16th & SE Morrison and it takes you over the bridge to downtown in minutes or the Northwest Portland if you just stay on it thru downtown.
Cabs are cheap here and great if it's raining. Radio cab is 503.227.1212, just call a bit ahead of pick up.
There's a new street car down on Stark and Grand Avenue (6 blocks) that will take you to the Oregon Convention Center and then to downtown, it's pretty nice. Bike commuting is also very good here, just be sure to bring your helmet and your lights as you can be ticketed if you have no lights.

Other Things to Note

PLEASE NOTE: A CASH cleaning fee of $25 is to be left in envelope in room at check out. Thank you so much!

House Rules

I think you'll really enjoy spending your time at Portland's "16th Ave Walk Ups".
Here are the House Rules:
- Please clean up after yourself in the kitchen. This includes washing all your dishes before you leave the kitchen, wiping down the stove/countertops/table, and taking the trash & recycling to the outside bins when they're full. Thank you!
-Please mark a shelf in the fridge/cupboard with your name or studio # while you're here. If you have leftovers, please put on fridge share shelf or mark 'share' and leave on kitchen table.
-Please keep all your personal stuff including your towel/washcloth/shampoo in your room.
-Please don't leave your shoes in the hallway. Basically, just be respectful to the other guests.
- There is no smoking anywhere on the property.
- There is a curfew of 10:00 pm on the balcony in order to be respectful of our neighbors. You may be out alone, but not to chat as these are quiet hours.
- There are no pets allowed to be considerate of others allergies.
- Please be aware that this is an old building and sound can travel. Please don't play your music or movies too loudly in your room.
- There is a table in the living room for computer use, please don't set up your work space in the kitchen as that can get in the way of people trying to fix their food or have their coffee.
Thanks for being considerate of everyone.
When you go if you could please take the sheets off of your bed, gather up you towels & put them in a pile on the bed, that'd be very helpful.
-Please take out your trash & recycling before you leave (plastic caps go in tub next to bin outside and glass goes in the yellow tub).
We're happy to help make you more comfortable any way we can, just call/text.
