COVID update - immediately after getting a reservation, we block off two full days before and after the reservation to allow a thorough cleaning and sanitizing. After a guest leaves, we open up all the windows and skylights and turn on the ceiling fans for 1+ days to air the place out. Then, we do a thorough cleaning. We also have a Winix HEPA air purifier to help filter the air, and make hand sanitizers and lysol wipes available.

The space
We have a very large house in the close-in Southeast area of Westmoreland/Sellwood. We originally created the separate"studio" unit ten years ago on the front part of our second floor in case either of our two sons wanted to live here while they went to college locally. Well, both of our sons decided to attend school outside of Portland, so we have now opted to share this space with visitors. Only one door connects the studio with the rest of the house and we lock it and block it off with two feet of insulation to give visitors privacy.

Second floor one bedroom with separate entrance, its own new full kitchen and bathroom, lots of windows, skylights, laundry, balcony, and sun room. Popular Westmoreland/Sellwood area. Lots of stores, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, a 1-screen movie theater, grocery store and a 1910 amusement park within walking distance. Reed College a short walk. County golf course four blocks away (although we do not have clubs). Relax in the sun room and look at the tree tops or walkers/runners as they go by. LED TV, blu-ray player and wireless internet.

19 Bus stops right across the street for a 20-minute ride downtown. The Orange Max line stops two blocks away for another option to get downtown.

There is traffic on our street, but it dies down in the evening and there's very little at night.

There is at least one parking spot right in front of our house that is almost always open, so parking is not a problem. We have a walkability score of 88 and a Street Smart Walk Score of 97!

In a pinch, we could accommodate a third person since we have an inflatable mattress. Send us a note.

NEW - we now have bicycles available. They are not high-end bikes, but they'll get you around. If you want better ones, there is a bike store nearby that rents bikes.
.
We have cats but we've kept them out of the studio for years.

Other things to note
We now have a Roku stick that will give you access to any Amazon Prime movies or TV shows. We also provide a chromebook for your use to access the internet.

The Westmoreland/Sellwood neighborhood was listed as the second hottest city neighborhood in the West by Sunset magazine a few years ago. Very walkable, friendly part of town with some great parks, bars and restaurants and easy access to the Orange Max line. Not sure why but there are three coffee shops within a stone's throw of each other. Farmer's market on Wednesdays (late Spring to early Fall). Great residential neighborhood. Five-minute drive to New Seasons (two of them) or Trader Joe's.

That's my partner and myself and our two kids. The youngest one is going to school in Eugene and the oldest is living at home (for now). We have lived in New York City then San Francisco and finally Portland, OR and love the city and love our neighborhood. We are both professional and very active (running, hiking, etc). If you are visiting Portland for the first time, try to fit in a visit to the Gorge. It's beautiful and only 30 minutes away.

During your stay
We live in the other part of the house, but because the studio has a separate entrance, we generally do not run into many of our guests, especially since we both work full-time, go to the gym and spend time working on another building that we own.
