About this listing
Our house is an old Portland Style home located in Northeast Portland in the quiet tree-lined Irvington neighborhood. The house is very close to downtown Portland as well as other interesting areas such as the Mississippi and Alberta Art Districts. We are a short walk away from lovely parks, restaurants, coffee shops, and other intriguing Portland destinations.
We are offering a very comfortable queen bed in a large bedroom. The bedroom is located on the second floor and has a full bath across the hall. In addition, we have an outside bath house that includes a large sauna, clawfoot tub, and shower. We share common areas of the house including: kitchen, washer/dryer, living room with TV, dining room, and backyard. We heat the downstairs of our home with a wood stove so it is always warm and cozy. The bedroom is furnished with an electric heater. The kitchen is the heart and soul of our home and nourishes us in more ways than one. Often, you will enjoy fresh squeezed juice and/or fabulously fragrant espresso beverages as they are a daily morning ritual. We usually have homemade granola available for you with fresh fruit and yogurt.
We are blocks away from public transportation, both bus, streetcar, and MAX lines.
We do offer a discount to all educators. The daily rate for those working in the classroom is: $70.00.
(URL HIDDEN) DINNER OPTION
For those of you that are looking for a little more of an "inside experience" during your stay here in Portland, we will provide a delicious family supper for you at a very reasonable price. We charge $30.00 per person and this price includes a glass of wine.
While Portland boasts some amazing restaurants, Santha has achieved legendary status in our community for the beautiful meals that she prepares on a nightly basis. Formerly a professional chef, she will craft a meal that will please and excite no matter what dietary restrictions you may have. Fresh, local, and seasonal are our guiding food preparation principles.
If you are interested in exploring the world of wine during your dinner, then we can also offer you a lovely wine list as Michael is our resident local wine merchant/steward.

Michael is an independent business person and local wine merchant. He loves bike riding, live music, and Everything New Orleans. Santha is a high school educator and gourmet chef. She loves to run on an almost daily basis, knit, cook, and is a voracious reader. We are also the proud owners of a Pug named Juno. She is very sweet, adorable, and loving.
We enjoy life inside this bubble that we call Portland! We are outdoor people with busy social lives. We exercise, eat well, and enjoy going out to a show or the movies on occasion. Much of our home life revolves around our lovely kitchen where Santha's culinary skills have become legendary in our community! Most of the food that we eat is locally sourced and we also like to enjoy a nice bottle of wine and lively conversation with dinner.
