About this listing
Come stay in our cozy studio apartment. With its private entrance, enjoy a cheerful kitchen, fully-tiled bathroom with tub in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to restaurants and bars of N. Williams, Historic Mississippi and Alberta Arts. You can easily get around by using bikes from Biketown, Portlands bike share program (1 block to closest station), by public transportation (about 250ft to bus stop) and/or your car with free street parking.
This remodeled unit is perfect for one or two people looking for a quiet and clean space. The place is all yours, though we are living in the same house if you would like to contact us.
In the studio you will find lots of windows, a very comfortable double-bed, coffee and tea as well as towels, sheets, blankets, shampoo and soap. And of course we offer free Wi-Fi with a good signal.
There is plenty of free 24h street parking in front of our house.
New Seasons (a local grocery chain) is nearby and provides an easy walk for groceries or a gourmet buffet when you don’t feel like messing up the kitchen.
The kitchen is fully "stuffed" with all you need to prepare a meal.
You can hang out on the front porch or in the backyard - where urban gardening is underway - enjoying the warm Portland summer nights with a glass of wine or a pint of local beer. We have washer and dryer onsite for your use.
Interaction with guests
Friendly owners will offer tips and answer your questions. We are around for a chat or you can have all the privacy you like, it's up to you.

We love the urban life, and we adore the Northwest's natural beauty. We love to hike, kayak, get to the coast and garden.
Ludger's an engineer, computer consultant and craftsman who makes old houses work better (and can fix just about anything!), and Deborah's a writer, poet and taught college English for a long time. We both work from home but love travel. We met on the way to Khajuraho, India (where you'll find the largest group of Medieval Hindu and Jain temples--famous for their erotic sculptures!) The bus broke down, and there we sat--two travelers dazed as the locals and their chickens and bags of rice departed.
We enjoy sharing our northeast Portland home, and respect your privacy. With a private entrance to come and go as you please, you can simply enjoy your time alone, or join us on the front porch. We are happy to tell you about our favorite haunts and hikes, answer any questions, or leave you to your romantic getaway. When our garden thrives, we'll share some produce.
