THIS ROOM OPENED EARLY - can be ready JULY 30th. Please inquire if you need something humble THIS week.
What you see in the room:
A wall of Craftsman windows (similar to some of the other pix).
Cool blue walls white ceiling and trim, a sturdy wood chair, bedside cabinet with radio/alarm clock, mirror-light, and a full-size mattress on the carpeted floor - it is stacked with Quilts and pillows. This Full -size bed may be replaced with a SINGLE on a wood frame this week.
Not fancy, and not a good space for tele-Commuters, but very comfortable for sleeping, if you can get up from a low bed.
A painted chimney runs thru the room.. (covered by a curtain now, because it needs re-surfacing and paint). One of the windows opens for fresh air,and could benefit from a custom screen...working on getting that.
Affordable Sleeping - upstairs, usually quiet, because this transitional housing/garden home mainly for those who plan to be gone all day...exploring the Metro area....or for those who need a place to store their stuff while you are off on an adventure to Seattle, the Coast, or Camping/Skiing a few days. If you are a non-smoker who won't bring a cat or bugs, and does not need indoor temps in the 70's til June or July...this is your spot.
No desk, dresser or table in this small room at present - and weekly rates Spring- Summer, are $125, with a firm Cancellation Policy.
Air is cool here in winter, to reduce oil wars and sinus issues. However, electric blankets are available for use as a Bed warmer. When it is at a comfy level, please turn power off, as body heat and quilts then keep bed warm. Doing this helps you avoid exposure to EMFs ~ and it conserves electricity. TY! Again - it is a COOL room Fall-May...I will assume you read this and thought about that if you request it anytime but summer. Thanks.
Awesome east-facing wood-framed Craftsman Windows. Space is cozy - and filled with light - but a small space, with no desk. If you lived in a dorm, this is better, because it is QUIET, beautiful and PRIVATE; with access to common areas, free Laundry, Bonus room downstairs where you can spread out your laundry. Huge yard, big porch, FREE off-street Parking, Comfy living room with fireplace, separate dining room, and large Kitchen. free tea, and OK to use hosts spices and condiments. Local Maps, Bus info, Music CDs, Language Study and Travel Library are available...Spanish, Italian, and more.
A Guest may rent the upper Blue Room as an office, storage, or Art Studio, and everything can be removed if that helps. The blue room room now has a full size mattress (without frame) with clean sheets, quilts, and pillows, on a clean new blue carpet, with a new oriental-style rug. On request, the carpet and rug can go ~ there is a wood-painted Floor beneath. Closet in this room is used for household storage - linens, vacuum, ect..
On nice days. please have the window open in this room - it keeps the air in the house refreshed. On cooler days, if the central heating system in on, please leave door open so the powerful hall heat vent can help this smaller room more comfortable for sleeping. Thank you.
Fully equipped main bath, and shared Kitchen, are on the Main level. with microwave, spices, condiments; towels, shampoo, TP, toothpaste, Iron, and more provided. OMG even hair appliances! Dippity-doo, Rollers, Blow-Dryer, and hairspray are here - YMBK! who would use that, on vacation, anyway? Why use it unless a COSTUME event? If so - invite Jules!! An Iron is downstairs in the laundry area, as is a 2nd fridge and shelves, for those who need more space. The BONUS ROOM in the basement has a painted concrete floor, making it very cool year-round - some may like to use it for projects. Inquire with your dates, and Book first, probably. See other spaces for pics of the house, house rules, area directions, Bus, shopping, ect.

I didn't see Julie much, but I found Julie (as well as the others in the house) to be very welcoming and accommodating. There was space cleared in the refrigerator and cabinet for my food items and the electric blankets and the huge stack of blankets on the bed ensured that I would stay warm throughout the night. My short stay at Julie's place was exactly what I needed.
Julie is really nice. I was happy to meet someone involved social activities.
I got the blue room, small, kind of humid with small visitors... As for 5 more dollars (the price of the daily tram ticket) , you can find a room in a dorm downtown, I would say that is not a great deal.
Julie's place was fine and served my needs while I was in Portland for a training. I didn't actually see her while I was there, except very briefly just before I left Sunday morning. In fact I was the only one there most of the time. She graciously upgraded me to the mini-suite which was nice. The bed wasn't great, but the room was clean and quiet.
Julie was a lovely host. She was very involved in making sure we enjoyed our stay, discussing great places to visit, upcoming events, etc. The bus stop is right by her house, making it very convenient to commute about the city. We greatly appreciated how welcoming and loving she was toward our dog who stayed with us as well. I would definitely recommend staying with Julie while visiting Portland!
Julie was very accommodating! All i needed was a shower and bed to sleep in for the night and she was very gracious with that! We both are night owls so she had no problem with me coming and going when I pleased.
I visited Portland for about 10 days to see the city and enjoy its nature. I loved it very much, but was disappointed because the university I was hoping to transfer to don't accept about two thirds of the hours I had already completed. I still enjoyed the beautiful Portland and helped its nice people. Staying with Julie was a great experience, she is a nice host and a good person that has a lot of good friends that I had the pleasure to meet. Her house is on a corner were you can catch a bus toward the train station; no need to walk farther than across her yard to catch it.
