We have a nice modern townhouse in the North Tabor neighborhood, that is very conveniently located to the light rail MAX line one block away which makes getting around by public transportation pretty easy.
Comfortable, Modern Townhouse, one block from MAX train line to downtown and easy access to the airport as well as several Bus lines running right by us. There are nearby cafes, pubs and shopping. We have a very mellow cat if there are any concerns with allergies. He likes meeting new people and loves to be petted.
The room is small and really only large enough for one guest, but it has its own attached bathroom and patio. The room has a twin bed, a desk, an armoire for hanging cloths, and drawer space. It is on the first level of a three story townhouse and so has a feeling of being somewhat removed from the rest of the house giving you a greater sense of privacy. The door to your room is right by the front door of the townhouse so you can slip in and out if you are not feeling particularly social. It should be noted that your room is under our living room area so you might hear the occasional footsteps overhead or the sound of the TV if someone is watching a movie.
The room has a mini-fridge so you can keep food and drinks in easy reach. There is a microwave and dishes; also a water heater to make hot water for coffee or tea. This room is really best for guests who do not need to cook full meals (although in the past we have allowed kitchen access, we've found this to be a bit distracting esp since one of us works at home). Occasionally, we invite guests to join us for a meal or two on weekends or evenings, or for an evening drink, if timing/schedules work out to allow it.
Laundry facilities are available for longer stays. We supply fresh towels and clean bedding for every guest.
We are an artistic couple. Dao is an author and musician. Kyle dabbles in painting and video, and works for a cruise boat company as his day job. We have a 16 year old boy - Lincoln - who you might run into, or hear him leaving for school in the mornings. The cat is very friendly and will want to be your best friend.
If you come stay with us and are not familiar with Portland we can give you some pointers and possibly take you around a little. We have a bicycle you can rent for $5 a day.
Thanks for looking,
Kyle and Dao

Interaktion mit Gästen
We both like to interact with our guests and also let them do their own thing. We sometimes invite them to have a meal or a drink us, but often we hardly see our guest during their stay because of our busy schedules. We are happy to help our guests with any questions they might have about the area.
Weitere wichtige Infos
In your room's bathroom cabinets/drawers you will find extra towels, toilet paper, a small hair dryer, a hot water heater for tea/instant coffee, a plate, bowel and a fork and spoon. With these accouterments you can make simple, microwaveable meals, keep drinks cold, have breakfast cereals if you are not wanting to eat out for every meal.
We don't mind if you smoke but it must be done out in the patio or outside the house. We don't mind if you drink but we don't want overly noisy guests, and if you come home late you must be courteous about the noise levels. Conversely, if we have the TV on too loud feel free to ask us to turn it down. We want everyone to enjoy their stay :)
