Interaktion mit Gästen
We both work at night in fantastic restaurants here in Portland. Mira works at pok pok and Jessica at Ringside Steakhouse. Our schedule means we go to work in the evening and arrive home very late. We of course make every effort to keep noise at a minimum when we get home from work (usually well after midnight) but please note that our home is almost 100 years old and does have squeaky floors! You might see us enjoying the backward for morning coffee or coming and going from yoga or errands during the day before we head off to work.

As mentioned, our pup will be roaming the whole home and is likely to be at your side if we are not home. She's a people dog. She is very friendly and chill. Any guests in our home must love dogs and be aware that she will be wandering around the entire home even though it is listed as a private bedroom. She is allowed in the back yard, but do make sure the gate is closed as you come and go, as to keep her from wandering into the road. Additionally we now also have a little boy cat, Persimmon. He will be roaming the home too
We expect our guests to respect our home that we love very much. Additionally, please be kind to our dog, Mia, who has free roam of house and back yard. She is a sweet old soul. However, she is not allowed outside of the fence, so guests would need to please pull the gate closed for her safety. Also, our kitten, Persimmon, will be around and needs access to the laundry room in our basement where his food and litter are located.
Please do not close the wooden door to our kitchen at the top of the stairs. If this door is closed, Mia might scratch at it to get to where people are or to get outside.
