This is a nice private space. There is room to spread out and have some downtime when you aren't exploring Portland and the surrounding areas.
If you are traveling by bicycle, we have a covered outside area to lock them up and it is accessible using the same key as the rental.
Besides the private apartment, guests have access to an outdoor eating area in the front yard. It is available from 8 am to 7:30 pm during the school year and 8:30 pm in the summer.
Interaction with guests
We are happy to chat about Portland or your stay. Because it is a private apartment, we try and respect your privacy and you won't be seeing us unless you'd like to chat. We are often out and about and sometimes may do a trip to the beach just a short drive away, but we will make sure that someone is always available to answer questions and deal with any issues if they arise.
Mt. Tabor/Montavilla neighborhood is a great place to explore. You can walk to Mt. Tabor Park, The Academy Theater, coffee shops and restaurants.
We are near bus and bike routes to downtown Portland. We are just a minute walk from the #4 bus, a frequent service bus that goes downtown.
Other things to note
We often will arrange to leave a key for you to allow for flexible check-in times.
We are a basement apartment in an old house. So although we do try to be quiet, you will hear us moving around upstairs.
No smoking please.
