The Space

Our house is walking distance to Reed College and the Eastmoreland Golf Course in a lovely tree-lined southeast neighborhood.

Our private suite in the lower level has all the comforts of home -- free wifi, cable television, laundry facilities, a microwave, toaster oven and small refrigerator. And you don't have to worry about being cramped -- this suite has plenty of space for all your belongings.

If you're looking for a place to relax and enjoy soaking in our hot tub in the evening hours, this is the place for you.

There's a private entrance for your convenience. And this suite has a very comfy futon and a full-size crib.

Just to let you know we installed a private bathroom complete with a shower for our guests.

And, when you stay with us, we provide everything you need for breakfast -- juices, bagels, fruit, coffee, tea, muffins and cereals -- anything you like. And you can use our full kitchen to prepare snacks and other meals.

You're also welcome to bring your pets -- dogs and cats -- our cocker spaniel, Amadeus, loves to have company. We do ask, however, for a $125 refundable security deposit if you bring your animals.

From our house, you can reach downtown Portland within 15 minutes by car, and we're just two short blocks from a city bus stop that connects with the light rail system which goes directly to the Portland airport.

Our Tudor home is in a very peaceful and safe neighborhood, close to the beautiful Crystal Springs Rhododendrun Gardens, Reed College, the Eastmoreland Golf Course, and we're within walking distance to local coffee shops, grocery stores, restaurants and a movie theater.

This area where we live is so quiet, you'll never hear any cars drive by in the evening hours.

You can also feel free to lounge on our back deck, relax in our hot tub or sit in our manicured garden full of lush plants and flowers -- whenever you like.

We're also avid travelers and would love to share our experiences with you to such far-off places as Ethiopia, Myanmar and Tibet.

And, if you decide to stay with us longer than a week, we're willing to offer you a special discounted rate!

  • Diane and Michael were fantastic hosts. They were very welcoming and always made sure I was doing well, was comfortable, and had everything I needed. I stayed with them for a month when I moved to Portland. They helped to make my transition a smooth one. I was very grateful that they welcomed my pets and treated them like their own. The place was very spacious and as described. I enjoyed having my own amenities and space ( bathroom, shower, mini fridge, small appliances, etc) as well as having use of the backyard, hot tub, and kitchen upstairs. Diane and Michael were perfect hosts. I would give them ten stars if I could. **********

  • Great stay, wonderful neighborhood. Very nice, quiet, private entrance was nice.

    June 2014
  • The space is very nice and there are some great extras like a private bathroom, small refrigerator and microwave. There's also a private entrance to the rental space. The hosts made it clear that we could use their kitchen and refrigerator, but some of us prefer to avoid feeling like we're intruding and the direct access to those things was nice.

    Mike & Diane are very pleasant and accommodating. The neighborhood is beautiful and the location was perfect for us.

  • Michael and Diane were very flexible and generous with their space and accommodated our needs (and our dog's needs) very well. Thank you!

  • Diane and Michael were wonderful hosts, taking care of us and anticipating any needs we may have had. The room had plenty of space to work on the computer, space to make small, simple meals, a beautiful new bathroom, was private yet accessible to the upstairs and our hosts, and was in a great location for our plans in SE Portland--beautiful neighborhood, as well. I'd highly recommend the Muzikant's and their Quiet Comfy Suite!

  • Michael and Diane are excellent hosts; respectful, kind, generous, interesting, and fun! They made me feel welcomed and always asked if there was anything else I needed. They provided breakfast and coffee/tea for the 5 weeks I was there which was wonderful! The basement room is a spacious, private space. I was very comfortable and enjoyed my time relaxing after work and on days off. Beautiful, clean, private bathroom and laundry room was so convenient. Everything you need is there! I thoroughly enjoyed talking with them, being in their company at times when I used their kitchen to cook. My dog, Frankie, loved spending time with them too! The neighborhood is beautiful and safe. A great area to walk my dog any time of the day or night. I am thankful for their kindness and caring that they showed me and Frankie while we were there. I felt like I was staying with family and I loved their dog, Amadeus, and friend's dog, Carmen, who would come visit. Lovely people and lovely, clean, cozy home. If I'm ever in Portland again, I will be staying with them!

  • We needed a place quickly and they helped us out in a pinch. Our hosts were gracious, kind, and respectful. The basement is spacious and private. Michael was extremely helpful and attended to our unique situation.

    November 2013
  • Diane and Michael were great! I stayed for a month when I first moved to Portland and couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the city. They were very hospitable and had thought of everything I might need to settle in.

    I'd recommend this space to anyone visiting Portland; the room is spacious while still being cozy. Very nice quiet neighborhood with easy bus access to downtown.

  • Michael and Dianne were flexible about my arrival and kept in communication with me throughout the process. They asked regularly how they could help me or improve my stay and brought fresh fruit and whatever else I might have wanted daily.
    Nice new bathroom:)

  • The Muzikants are such warm and gracious hosts. We had a very comfortable stay. The suite is cozy and relaxing. The Muzikants and the space where we stayed allowed for privacy and flexibility to come and go, while they were available for anything we needed. They ensured we had plenty of delicious breakfast food, which was great not to have to worry about.
