Overview: Private apartment with complete small kitchen (from the 50s!) and living room, bathroom with tiled walk in shower. Three quiet rooms with beds, accommodations on a queen bed, double bed, and single bed to suit your needs, all with comfy well reviewed mattresses.
Another single bed can be set up in the single bedroom, and an additional double mattress is available for use on the floor. Note: the queen bedroom has a small hallway, which is the pass through to the cozy living room and kitchen.
The idea is for you to have a great stay, and the apartment is cleaned and reset ready for your visit. If there's anything more I can help with or provide, just ask. I'll do my best to accommodate!
All clean linens are provided, and the kitchen and bathroom are stocked with basics and more for home away from home comfort. Towels, bath soaps, shampoo, hairdryer, microwave, coffee maker, cooking utensils and dishes are ready for you. You'll find cold drinks in the fridge and snacks, coffee, and tea in the kitchen, along with Portland guide books for making plans.
Family friendly items: pack and play crib and Ikea high chair are available, just let me know and they'll be waiting for you.
This is a vintage mid century home, and I live on the floor above. The house is well insulated, and I know larger groups come together to enjoy and socialize, but thanks for keeping rowdiness off the premises. Quiet hours from 11pm to 7am, thanks.

On arrival we’ll meet and I’ll show you around to make sure you're all set, including with keyless entry so you'll have secure access to come and go on your own schedule.
After that, I'll follow your lead on interaction. I'm happy to provide privacy, while being available for questions or recommendations, or to share conversation about Portland and/or your travels!

I have a cat, he's a rescue and lives upstairs. He's a little shy/curious and an indoor only cat, so we'll keep the doors to the apartment closed to ensure his safety and your privacy.
He doesn't spend much time in the apartment, but if you have allergies, he does race through when the space is open and he likes to sit in front of the gas fireplace in the winter.
No smoking, tobacco or otherwise, in the apartment or grounds and applicable to all guests, much appreciated. Thanks also for your mutual respect and care for my home.
The apartment will be set up for you to have a great stay, with the understanding that you'll return the favor by leaving it in substantially the same condition. If anything comes up while you're here or you have any questions, just let me know. I live upstairs and am happy to help.

I’m originally a transplant from the east coast, and headed on west to Portland in my twenties, so I’ve seen real transformation in the area. As well for me over the years in this ever growing town, an excellent place to live, and along with I’ve had the adventure of raising a family of three girls, who now live in New York and Ireland and who love to be from Portland.
We’re travelers from way back, having first ventured solo to Europe in my teens and then traveling with daughters, and again most recently to SE Asia. I had the good fortune to meet amazing folks doing considerable work in Cambodia, and I returned to work with their NGO for some deep and wide experiences.
I also take photos wherever I am, spend renewing time in my garden, and am lucky to enjoy a sunset view from my back deck. I’m happy to share, and look forward to meeting you here, or on the road.
