Interaction with Guests
We will meet you at our home to give you the key and a quick tour before leaving you to enjoy your stay!
Our quiet neighborhood is a 10-minute drive from dozens of wineries and breath-taking views. Dundee is also five miles from George Fox University in Newberg, for any parents out to visit their kids. We're 15 minutes from charming McMinnville, 40 minutes from the urban destination of Portland, and 1.5 hours from our spectacular Pacific coast. Amazing hikes in every direction, and the famous Spruce Goose (huge plane at an aviation & space museum) just down the road.
From our front door, you're a 10-minute walk from espresso, wood-fired pizza, bbq, and local, gourmet cooking. From our back door, you're steps away from a calming evening stroll through the vineyard, with valley views from the top.
You will need a car to get to Dundee and tool around once here. Public transit is available, but is not very convenient. Many of our guests have brought bikes, though, and put them to good use.
Other Things to Note
We provide paper products needed, including toilet paper, paper towels, napkins; as well as towels, sheets, blankets, and meal necessities (plates, silverware, soap, etc). We clear space in the freezer and refrigerator for you to keep perishable items.
Pantry items (flour, sugar, spices, etc) are *not* included in your cost. Currently we do allow an honor system -- if you use our cooking and baking ingredients, please estimate a value and leave cash for us to replace those items.
This is our primary residence, as opposed to a dedicated rental. We love sharing it with people, and look for ways to make your stay here comfortable and restful. Some areas, however, are marked "private" -- those closets and cupboards are clearly marked, so you know where to respect our privacy.
Our rules are pretty simple: No smoking. No drugs. No shoes (anything you bring in on your shoes, our baby will eat!) - we do provide slippers for our guests.
No parties; we are not set up for events. Please invite no guests other than those we've agreed upon.
Our home is pet-free.
Please read the information left for you in the house; it gives helpful tips for the quirks in this home.
We prefer to not have children in our home, as we've discovered that child-proofing a personal residence (as opposed to a rental house) for children other than our own is nearly impossible.
About the Host, Kimberly
In the days before children, Rob & I enjoyed hiking, exploring, and travel. Now that we don't see the world quite as much, we're glad for Airbnb to bring the world to us. Our visits around Europe, Scandinavia, and parts of Africa add to our eagerness to meet those who live there now, while we also enjoy our guests from different parts of the US -- whether they come with the southern accent reminiscent of my childhood, or from just up the street in Portland.
With a 3-year-old and a newborn in the house, we're now taking Airbnb a month at a time, determining whether or not to open our calendar to guests...largely determined by whether the children are sleeping -- or not -- at night. If the calendar says we're available, then we're relatively certain you will have an enjoyable stay in our home.
WHY ARE WE AIRBNB HOSTS?
We love sharing the peace and beauty of vineyard living. We have the great good fortune of overlooking the Four Graces vineyard in Dundee, and the town and surrounding area offer excellent diversions of wine tasting, dining, hiking, shopping, and sight-seeing.
If you're staying in Portland before or after your stop here, I may be able to direct you to other excellent Airbnb hosts in the city -- depending upon the size of your party. And if you have more people than will fit into our home for your stay, ask me about other options nearby in Dundee and Newberg. Other Airbnb hosts are not far away, so you may be able to split your group between our home and another.
