The Space

The studio apartment: The studio is located on the second floor. (17 stairs from 1st to 2nd floor.) It has a private entrance that allows for guests to enter and exit the house without going to the living space of the owners. The room can accommodate up to 6 people but I would say 4+kids would be more comfortable. The apartment is one room that includes a queen sized bed, a loft queen sized bed above that one (which requires climbing a short ladder), a futon that opens up to a full bed, a kitchenette and a dining table. It shares a full bathroom with another rented private room. There is another half bath on the first floor that can be used by all guests. It is also accessible without entering the family's living space.

The house: - The house is "brownstone" style. There are 11 steps from the sidewalk to the front door. This is a bright, sunny room with a lot of windows. It overlooks the front, tree-lined street. !

We also have second listing in this property that is for a private room.
We are happy to try to accommodate last minute bookings and late arrivals. Contact us to see what we can do!

Noise: - The studio is located in our home where we live with our three year old daughter. She is well behaved (and we are not just saying that!), but she is a little kid. We do have a second rental on the same floor. Quiet hours are between 10pm and 7am. We cannot, however, be held responsible for the time the sea gulls get up!

The full bathroom - It is fully renovated and spacious. It is a "Jack n Jill" between your studio and the other rental (a private room). Each room has a door into the bathroom, so you do not need to go into the hall to enter it. It is only a shared bathroom if the other room is rented as we do not use this bathroom. We have also put in an on demand hot water system, so there is always plenty for everyone!

Half bathroom - On the first floor, just under the stairs there is another half bathroom that you can use.

All Guests agree to indemnify and hold the Property Owners harmless from any liability for personal injury or property damage sustained by Guest or parties invited onto the property by Guest.

Guest Access

The studio apartment is accessed through a shared front door which has an electronic lock so no key is necessary. (Guests are asked to keep this door locked at all times) Guests will get to rental spaces through common hallway and staircase, but never have to enter into the living space of our family. We have no time restrictions for comings and goings, but we do have quiet hours from 10pm and 7am.

There is parking available in our driveway on a first come first served basis. Guests who park in the driveway are required to leave their key so that anyone parked in front of them can move their car out (and back in). During winter/snowy months (they are not necessarily one and the same), parking will be much more restricted as our driveway can be dangerous for people and cars alike. Information about alternatives will be provided during those months.

Interaction with Guests

We love to meet our guests to get to know them a bit and show them to their room, so please ring the door bell when you arrive. We also realize that travel plans can change and so we also have made it very easy for guests to let themselves in when we are not available. We are very happy to answer any questions you have about Portland and the house. Guests are given our phone numbers and can also knock on our door to get in touch with us.

The Neighborhood
