Portland, Oregon Short Term Rental Permit No.: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)-HO
Please consider our top floor suite for your Portland visit. We live in a large, very clean and well maintained two story home located in the heart of the Boise neighborhood. You'll have the entire top floor to yourselves. This space includes a large bedroom, with queen size bed, closet and TV. There is a separate sitting room outfitted with a chaise lounge and desk. Also located upstairs is your own bathroom. As you can read in our reviews, the space is very private with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy your stay in one of Portland's liveliest neighborhoods.
We love to talk to our guests and offer tips and suggestions. We're also happy to leave you alone if you prefer that. We really respect this is your trip to Portland and we want it to be the very best it can be. We'll do what we can to accommodate that.
The main level of the house includes a living room, dining room, kitchen and family room. We'll share this space and it's well laid out so, it's unlikely you'll feel crowded. We've also got a fully fenced backyard with a deck, outdoor dining tables and seating. Please note that living with us are three adorable and well behaved mutts.
Williams Avenue with all it's restaurants and shops is two and a half blocks away; Mississippi Street is 5 blocks away. New Seasons grocery is a block away. Pretty much everything you need is within a 5 minute walk: shops, great food, live music, craft beer, bike lanes, mass transit, Car2Go, Uber and much more.
The main house which we'll be sharing has a livingroom, diningroom, kitchen and family room with cable TV and WIFI.
1. We live on the #4 bus line which means you'll have easy access to mass transit but you'll also hear the bus on the street. We don't feel it's all that noticeable; nothing more than the usual sounds of a city but if you're super sensitive to sound, this is not the place for you.
2. This house doesn't have central air-conditioning because in this climate, we don't think it is necessary. During the summer months, when we feel it's needed, we rely on window fans and small window AC units which do the job quite well as Portland evening temperatures generally drop enough to cool off the house. We've had the house insulated and a fan system attached to our furnace and as a result the house doesn't heat up drastically. Having said all that, if some atypical heat wave hits Portland it may get warm. Also, if the sound of fans and air-conditioners will keep you awake, you should consider this. We've never had any complaints but we want to give you full discloure as we want your trip to Portland to be the best it can be.
Additionally, we have two lovable mutts who are indoor dogs. Our house is very clean and we have a whole house air filter system but if indoor dogs aren't your thing you won't want to stay with at our house.
If you're good with an urban location check the place out. we really think you'll love it and you can't beat the location.

Our home is very clean and comfortable. Your bedroom and sitting room are on the top floor of the house along with the bathroom which you will have to yourself. The living room, diningroom, kitchen, and den are on the main floor. We have a large backyard deck great for enjoying some outdoor time. Our front porch is also suitable for hanging out and watching the world go by. Please note our street, while not super busy, but does have a fair amount of traffic as it's an access to the popular Mississippi Avenue. This bedroom is at the front of the house. The windows are double paned and filter out most of the noise and we've never received complaints from our guests. However, we do want to disclose this in the event you require absolute silence.
