Rhonda designed our lower-level, so it’s filled with her trademark whimsical touches while serving its main purpose: to make sure your stay is entirely comfortable and relaxing. The space is large (525 sf) and features a private bathroom with shower and lots of amenities (see below). Because we’re in a quiet Southwest Portland neighborhood we’re slightly lacking when it comes to per capita wacky Portlandia types. BUT there are birds, (and plenty of ’em!), humongous trees and friendly neighbors.

The space

• About 10-15 minutes from downtown on I-5 •Quiet, safe, residential neighborhood
• Three minutes to quaint Multnomah Village with restaurants, artsy boutiques, bars and coffee shops
• 30 – 40 minutes from scenic wine country
• 90 minutes from the beautiful Oregon Coast

Your room:
• Private, nicely remodeled basement room: it's cool in summer, toasty warm in winter
• Comfortable queen bed and an additional air mattress upon request
• Large sitting area with sofa, easy chair, ottoman, cable TV with many premium channels, desk/computer area
• Private, separate full bathroom with shower
• Walk-in closet
• Mini-fridge

• Laundry facilities
• Wi-Fi

Other amenities:
• Attached garage space is available for car, bike, and miscellaneous storage
• Nearby parks for strolling and jogging
• Baby equipment: a Pack and Play, small inflated bed, high-chair, toys and books.

Your hosts:
• Rhonda's a designer.
• Doug's a writer. As you can see, he’s an expert at creating bullet notes.
• Both work out of the home on upper levels.
• We've lived here more than 20 years, so we're happy to offer advice about restaurants, sights to see, etc.

• Restaurants are continuing to open at a breakneck speed. This year alone, 1600 new restaurants have opened! Just kidding. But there are so many high-quality new eateries that it's difficult to keep up.

• Post-Labor Day, the theatre scene just begins to ramp up with a wide selection of new plays and revivals by local theatres, and big-name Broadway shows that play at the Keller Auditorium or the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall.

• We've heard good things about the free "Secrets of Portlandia" walking tour given by Erik Kennon. It runs until the end of September. You can find more info about the tour on his website.

• Like stand-up comedy? The Helium Club hosts big-name and upcoming comedians on a regular basis.

• The Aladdin Theatre regularly presents some of the best musical artists and popular comedians in an intimate environment. occasional big-time comedians as well. Learn more about their schedule on their site.

• One of our favorite events is the Portland International Film Festival, which runs in February. For fans of cinema, this is a real treat.

Spent a couple of days with Rhonda and Doug. They were very friendly and welcoming. Everything was neat and tidy. The description of the location was very accurate and met all of my expectations. Couldn't have stayed in a better place. Loved it!

Rhonda and Doug were great hosts. They were very accommodating with our check-in time and the downstairs unit was private. They had great knowledge of the area and seemed to be very nice people! Having all those TV channels was also a bonus :)

We had a fantastic time at Rhonda and Doug’s place in Portland. Rhonda and Doug are most friendly and helpful people. They could not have been nicer, informing us about traffic condition on our way to Portland and giving us suggestions for our trip. If nothing else had gone right with apartment, Rhonda and Doug ensured we would have left with a good impression. Fortunately, everything about the apartment was exceptional. It was clean, stylish, roomy, well equipped and comfortable. Hosts provide everything what you might need during your travel. We could go on but suffice it to say we were very pleased with our stay and hope to be back for another visit in the future. Thank you for your hospitality!

Rhonda and Doug's home is a real charmer, beautifully designed and decorated. Guests stay in the fully finished and wonderfully decorated basement apartment, complete with dining table, coffee, kitchen supplies, cable, large TV, full bath, large closet, and the most comfortable bed on the planet! The hosts are PERFECT.

Rhonda And Doug User ProfileRhonda And Doug is a superhost.

Rhonda is a residential designer, originally from Iowa. Doug is a freelance writer and hails from New York, NY. We both work from home.

Both of us landed here in Portland in the late 1980s, back when it was transitioning from a sleepy little logging town, so we've seen monumental changes, most of them pretty good. We're tuned into the restaurant and performing arts scenes, so we're happy to give our guests recommendations and advice.
