Description

The Space

Of our 2 studios here at The Johnson House, Auntie's Hideaway is priced for the budget conscious traveler. So if you don't mind a daylight basement hideaway where you hear the polite doings of a household and skittering kitties above, you can book a real find for a reasonable price. Check out the reviews; guests who've stayed with us over our 7 years in business love The Johnson House whether they book our darling's Auntie's Hideaway or our stand alone backyard studio, Grandpa's Bunkhouse.

Our daylight basement studio was our proper Auntie Kirsten's bedroom for decades. She appreciated it because our home is a tight little bungalow, built for solidity, a pleasant fortress against the elements. So rest assured that our studio is clean and fresh, without dampness or any other problems associated with basements in home that are not well constructed.


Feline Alert: We have 3 indoor/outdoor cats. They go into the studios on fairly often so we cannot host anyone with allergies.

We do not offer weekly or monthly rates. Our studios are designed more for shorter stays.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the common outside areas: picnic table, hammock, deck, and front patio fountain area during the warm weather.

If you need laundry services, we can point you to a great laundromat sandwiched between a stellar cornmeal crust pizza parlor and a colorful Cuban restaurant where the desserts delight.

Interaction with Guests

Your host, Jean Johnson, is a retired historian and 4-season organic gardener. She studies ballet and uses her bicycle and public transit to get around Portland. Jean enjoys welcoming guests and orienting them to the Roseway Neighborhood and her beloved native city.

The Neighborhood

Neighborhood: We are just off Noodle Flat where you can get pepper salted squid at Thien Hong or wood fired pizza over at our brand new and wildly popular Otto's.

Plenty of parking is always available, and you will get a glimpse of life beyond Portlandia. Unlike Portland's trendier neighborhoods, our Northeast area of the city has solid roots that go back generations. Indeed, our grandparents bought this bungalow in 1950 for their retirement, and we have kept it in the family ever since.

Expect a congenial place where neighbors help neighbors and during nice weather, impromptu happy hours make for an down home "howdy-do."

Getting Around

We are 2 blocks off Portland's major boulevard, Sandy, which makes zipping around town from here easy.

Transportation: We are in Northeast Portland, 10 minutes from the airport and 20 from downtown by car. Major public transit lines are 2 blocks away. And from here it's an easy bike ride or 10-20 minutes by car to three of Portland's newest and notable neighborhoods: Mississippi, Alberta, and Beaumont.

Other Things to Note

Airbnb is all about travelers having a home away from home. Of connecting with locals. Of experiencing all the small touches hosts offer to help invite guests into their cities and cultures.

Here you will get a glimpse into Portland's DIY and kitchen garden culture. We did all the tiling in ourselves and also got into some green building by recycling wood from our brother's righteous old workbench. And Jean grows a 4-season organic garden.

Feline Alert: We have 3 indoor/outdoor cats. They go into the studios on fairly often so we cannot host anyone with allergies.

House Rules

1. We ask all guest to complete our rental agreement which we forward once a booking is made. It includes a standard "stay at your own risk" liability waiver per our legal team and guest registry information required by the City of Portland.

2. We are in a residential area and are highly conscious of our street presence. Therefore we ask that our guests park directly in front of our home, facing in the line of traffic, and leaving room for a second vehicle.

3. Our facilities are designed for limited numbers of people, and the City of Portland does not permit us holding events here. That said, from time to time our guests do have visitors who do not stay overnight and who are not part of the official party. We do ask, though, that guests let us know prior to booking what if any plans they might have with regard to friends and family joining them here.

4. The Johnson House is registered with the City of Portland as a homestay and fully compliant with the City's short-term lodging taxing system. Tax ID number available upon request.

Mainly we just ask that you enjoy yourself, but here are a few more particulars:

We are a smoke free home, inside and out.

We ask guests to not use candles or other open flames of any type.

All are welcome here although since we are a family neighborhood we cannot host those traveling by motorcycle or motor homes and campers.

There are three well groomed cats so we cannot accommodate those with allergies. And yes, we do accept pets.
