Charming, Tidy 1 Bdrm Bungalow Apt

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Southeast 65th Avenue, Portland, OR 97206, United States

Looking for an affordable, authentic, and peaceful Portland experience? Stay in an old Portland home!

This apartment is the top floor of a 1908 Old Portland Bungalow and while it shares the same front door with the downstairs, it has its own lockable entrance up the stairs from a small common foyer. It is a separate and private apartment from the downstairs quarters (where we live) and even has its own door bell. The space is bigger than it looks in the pictures (really! read our great reviews). It's perfect for couples or small family groups 9 three.

This apartment was occupied until July 2012 and has been completely updated with fresh paint, new carpeting, counter tops and more. We are excited to offer our cute, second-floor apartment. It is super clean and spacious!

This cozy apartment features one bedroom, a living area with a couch and separate dining area, bathroom (no tub - shower only) and a full kitchen. We are located in the up-and-coming, Foster-Powell neighborhood in SE Portland, or FO PO as we locals call it.

We are within walking distance from the Gemini Lounge, N.W.I.P.A. (a beer bottle shop dedicated to hoppy IPA brews), breakfast spot Bar Carlo, and a few other bars and convenience stores. We also have grocery, drug stores, and fast-food options minutes away by car, bus, or bike. There are also parks and bike trails aplenty close by.

Details!
The bedroom has a full bed, classy Mid Century Modern furniture, nice linens, and closet space.

The living room has a comfy , Scandinavian Modern couch and a couple of chairs, a coffee table, and a built-in cabinet which houses a new smart TV, a dvd player, an eclectic collection of books and a drawer full of fliers of current events, walking tours, art shows, restaurant guides, and the like. We can provide extra sheets, pillows, and blankets for couch use.

The dining area has a table with 4 chairs from West Elm. There are window ac units in the bedroom and living area in the summer and extra space heaters in the colder months.

The bathroom is stocked with shampoo, fluffy towels, body wash, and a hair dryer. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, oven, microwave, coffee pot, and all the basic items needed to prepare simple meals for a short or longer stay.

We also stock the kitchen with ice, coffee, tea, and a few healthy breakfast options to get you going in the morning along with staples like olive oil, salt, pepper, vinegar and other items to make cooking convenient and easy.

Wifi is available and there is also an Ethernet cable for a dedicated connection. There are a few Redbox and Blockbuster kiosks within a five minute drive. You can also log into your Netflix or Hulu Plus account on the smart TV.

Location!
Downtown Portland and the PDX International Airport are both easy 20 minute drives in non-peak traffic from here (in opposite directions). Hawthorne is a 7 minute drive and the Woodstock neighborhood is minutes away by car or bike. Reed College is less than 10 min drive. Trimet’s #14 bus line (SE Hawthorne to downtown) picks up every 15 minutes from Foster Rd. should you not have a car during your stay.

Pigeon notice: Put a bird on it!!! There are many birds that live in our neighborhood and a new feathered family tries moves in every month or so. We are in the process of bird proofing our home and have covered many of the dormers on our roof. Just let us know if you hear animal sounds and we'll evict the pigeons again before they get too cozy.

There is plenty of street parking available.

  • I love when I can slyly convert family and friends into accepting the Airbnb concept without them really knowing. This was the place I chose to house my Aunt and Uncle for Thanksgiving this year when they came in to spend the holiday with me. Told them i'd "take care of the hotel" and they were instantly blown away when I showed them this place. It was very roomy, comfortable bed, great multimedia setup for us to share some movies and was able to hook my laptop up as well. They loved that they could surf the web while they were there on the provided laptop in the room, and the kitchen was fully stocked to cook an amazing turkey dinner. The dining area was big enough to share the meal with 5 people comfortably, and the overall floorplan was laid out in such a manner that we never felt we like we were stepping on anyone's toes. It was super clean, Holly and Cory were more than lovely, and despite the season a lot of natural light poured in during the day. We were so impressed by this place and recommend it to anyone passing through this great city! A great thanks to the Whitneys for making our Thanksgiving complete- :)

  • My wife and I stayed at Holly and Cory's place for a night during a road trip from LA to Seattle. Check in process was easy and the space was very large and comfortable. Holly also turned on the heat before we got there so that the apartment would be more comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    November 2012
  • We just left Holly & Cory's wonderful apartment in Portland. Everything was great. The apartment is clean and bright. It is only about 15 mins from downtown and in a very quiet, safe neighborhood. Holly provides delicious breakfast items and the kitchen is ready to cook in. We would most certainly stay here again!

  • Stayed with Holly and Cory for a month and everything was excellent. From check-in to check-out everything went smoothly . Place is great with close access to bus lines heading down town. Definitely consider this place if you are coming to Portland.

    October 2012
  • Holly and Cory were very accomodating for our stay. We were there between our rental and closing on our new home. The apartment was quiet and well furnished. There was a lot of light and fresh air. Their entertainment setup is very useful - you can stream tv shows and movies. There's also a laptop for browsing the internet and planning your trip in Portland. There are at least three bars and two restaurants within two blocks (!) of the apartment, which was really convenient. The bed is comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked with anything you could need.

  • Lovely place, spacious and well appointed! We hope to stay there again the next time we visit Portland -- maybe for a bit longer...

    August 2012
  • Holly and Cory's place was perfect. Clean and comfortable with everything I could possibly need or want. Holly was very communicative with me before and during my stay. Getting in and out of the apartment was incredibly easy and hassle free. They even stocked yogurt, granola, bananas, coffee, and fresh Strauss Farms milk! I will be staying here next time I come back to Portland.

    August 2012
  • This place is perfect. Holly and Cory are really attentive and easy to communicate with. The place is great for a little home away from home on the outskirts of downtown Portland. Nicely stocked with a few breakfast items when you arrive and a block a way from a convenience store, a cafe and some bars and restaurants. Bus stop only 3 blocks away. This place is a little gem for $60ish dollars

  • Wow, what a perfect stay! As others have mentioned, this place is roomy with all the amenities you need and some that you didn't realize you need. I second all the other reviewers positive comments. Having travelled with our 2 year old, I'll review some of the more kid specific aspects. The heaters are built into the wall, not corded space heaters as I had imagined, this was less worrisome than plug in ones. There are a few plastic dishes/cups for young ones. The granola and fruit were great to have. Our son had plenty of room to run around and there wasn't a lot of "stuff" he could get into which was wonderful. There isn't a bathtub but we had no problem bathing our son with the detachable shower head. There's a Trader Joes about a 5 min drive away and a kindergym type place called Kidopolis less than a 10 min walk (8 different themed rooms) to keep the kiddies entertained. A nearby school has a great outdoor play structure as well. It's stated for 5 and up but I found it reasonably safe for my 2 year old. I usually like to stay at different places even when traveling to the same city but I wouldn't hesitate to book here again for another trip to PDX. Even though there aren't a lot of very close amenities, I really liked staying in a residential area (always parking right in front!) and it's very quick to get to places around town.

  • I stayed at Holly and Cory’s house for a month and loved every minute. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The neighborhood is quiet and there is plenty of free street parking. Holly and Cory are lovely people and I would definitely stay here again.

About
Cory and I have lived in our little bungalow 10 years together. We spend lots of time working on the house: gardening, painting, and improving the space. It's always getting some well deserved love! We've rented out the space to a series of friendly folks who have moved on to buy their own homes or to move in with their significant others. Hosting comes pretty naturally to us (check out our referrals) and we've had some great people rent the apartment from all over the wold. We enjoy cooking, music, movies, art, architecture, plants, technology and canines (among other things, and not necessarily in that order). Cory works in the software business out in Hillsboro, OR. When he's not working (which is seldom), he's trying to get better at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, looking at funny pictures of animals, researching/making beer or perfecting his pizza dough recipe. Or grilling steaks! Favorite travels spots have been Cuenca Ecuador, Machu Picchu, la Paz Mexico and the Kona side of the Big Island. He grew up in New Hampshire, but the accent didn't stick. He has a deep love of sushi, but just can't seem to develop a taste for Uni. I work part-time as an office lady here in PDX. I grew up in South Texas and relocated happily to the West Coast in my 20's. I'm an introverted neat freak with compulsive reading tendencies. I'm here to answer your questions about the apartment or make recommendations on things to do in town. We have a wondeful and derpy 6-year-old chocolate lab who lives with us and loves everyone and everything about life (except for bath time). We look forward to meeting you!
