The space

Looking for a relaxing private apartment with a hot tub and easy access to downtown and the airport? You found it. Private entrance, private bath, shared kitchen and laundry. Sleeps 4. Lots of old records, cedar paneling and that vintage charm...

Our house is located near the Portland Airport, with easy access to downtown, the Columbia River Gorge, Mt. Hood and all the other great spots Portland has to offer! We are in a mellow residential neighborhood; walking distance to the Roseway Theater and about a mile from Beaumont Village, which has lots of shops and restaurants to explore. The famous Hollywood Theatre and district is about 2 miles away and served by a bus line. The best Vietnamese and Thai food in the city is walking distance from our door. Fire On The Mountain is a popular restaurant about a mile down the road. They specialize in chicken wings, but have pizza, burgers, a brewery and full bar. Downtown is straight down Sandy Blvd., which is served by a bus line as well as access to MAX which will take you pretty much anywhere in the city.

About the space!

If you want more than just a bedroom for your travels, this is your spot. You get about 900 sf to yourself, including a private bath and shared laundry right outside your door. This makes a great rental for couples, or families up to 4. Not to mention an awesome private backyard to BBQ, relax and enjoy the Hot Springs tub right outside your private entrance!

You will have a private access to the funky, retro basement unit. The space is essentially one large family room which acts as our chill out space when it is not being rented. There is a wood stove, console record player with lots of old records, TV with DVD, VHS, games and lots of movies to choose from. There are 2 full size beds, with a sliding door separating the two sleeping spaces. There is a giant, comfy couch for relaxing and watching movies in the family space.
There is a full bathroom with shower just outside the room. Laundry is shared with us in the other half of the basement. We tend to do laundry between guests, so you have the whole floor to yourself in most cases. There is a private kitchenette with custom walnut cabinetry, bamboo countertops, a mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot and tea kettle. There is a nice, private backyard with HOT TUB that you are free to use to relaxing those sore muscles after a day on the mountain, or just roaming the city. We are happy to give information about Portland, as well as things to do while you're visiting.

Private apartment with separate entrance. Your own bathroom with shower, private kitchenette, laundry is shared with us. Full access to back patio with BBQ and Hotsprings tub. Plenty of seating outside for those gorgeous spring and summer evenings.

We like to meet our guests when they arrive, and will take your lead of how much interaction you want with us. We have hung out with many of our guests out back, played some Nintendo and records downstairs, or shared coffee in the morning. If you just want your privacy, that's ok too!

We love our neighborhood because it's on a quiet, tree lined street out of all the hustle and bustle. Yet it's extremely close to all of Portland's nightlife and pubs, coffeehouses, brunch spots and the like. And then you can come home to your quiet, private backyard and chill in the hot tub...:)

3 Bus lines within a block, MAX access for easy travel throughout the city. The Sandy line will take you straight downtown basically from our front door! Fremont line will take you to Beaumont Village, Mississippi district, and Williams.

Great spot! Stayed here with our two kids, and had a great time with the record player, hot tub, and fireplace. Nick and Monique were super friendly, and we enjoyed visiting with them. Our daughter had fun playing with their daughter. Beautiful garden, fun spot!

Nick and Monique have a very unique, eccentric, and fun place to stay! They're extremely friendly and laid back as you'd want any host to be. They respect your privacy, but love to chat if you're open. Their home is very cozy and the space for guests is great. It's a big basement to use and has a very cool record player. The wood stove was fantastic for having a small fire at night. The space has the smell of an older basement, but this didn't bother us too much as you don't notice it after a few minutes. One bed is pretty squeaky and the sheets on both were worn, but everything has the vintage feel. You can probably find a nicer airbnb, but you won't find one more unique, cozy, and interesting. We really enjoyed staying here and would recommend it to our friends. Lastly, Nizzle the cat is the coolest cat we've ever met. He loves to hang out and dip his tail in the hot tub with you!

This basement apartment is stocked with everything you might need for an extended stay--for example, a nice flat-screen TV and a surprisingly spacious efficiency kitchen with dishes and cutlery, etc. There's a sofa, a small kitchen table with chairs, some other furniture, and the beds are comfortable. Guests might need to be forewarned that one of the sleeping areas is off the living room area, which you walk through if you're going from the bedroom to the bathroom or kitchen. This worked fine for us, but might not in every situation. The hosts are low key but available if you need them.

Nick and Monique's place is a great place to stay if your looking to stay in Portland. It's right around the great areas. It's also set in a cozy neighborhood. The house has a lovely grassy backyard with a grill and hot tub. The hosts are super cool and very accommodating, they were very easy to reach with questions. It was perfect staying at this comfortable abode.

Nick and Monique had such a nice place! It was centrally located between the Airport and Alberta districts, and we used the hot tub both nights we were there. It was so nice and relaxing. The beds are very comfortable!

Nick & Monique were fantastic hosts! We were initially drawn to the space because of its central location (super close to the airport AND to downtown), but it proved to be great for so much more. The place is clean, relatively spacious, and has pretty much every amenity you could ask for, including a hot tub and a killer record collection. They had solid suggestions for the best places to go in the area, were very knowledgeable about Portland, and gave us lots of privacy while still being accommodating and easily accessible. Definitely would recommend!!

Nick And Monique User ProfileNick And Monique is a superhost.

I am a Portland native and my wife, Monique, is a long time Oregonian. I am a woodworker and Monique is a Speech Pathologist. We love enjoying all the things Oregon has to offer. We are avid snowboarders, and also enjoy rock climbing, hiking with our daughter, drinking good beer, wine and coffee. We also love all the amazing food that Portland prides itself on. Hedonism comes easy in our household:). We love meeting travelers and learning more about where they are from, and have made some great friends with past guests! We are glad to point you in the right direction of where to go and what to do during your visits to Portland, and are always available for recommendations.
Look forward to meeting you!
