Rent the upstairs of my 1500 sq ft house. Two large rooms (600 sq ft total) with lots of storage and a half bath are private and exclusively used by the guest. Shower, kitchen, outdoor patio, and living room are shared with the homeowner and dogs (1 person).
You won't find this much private space for the price in SE! The house is a 1500 sqft house plus a basement. The space for rent is the entire second floor of the house (600 sqft) that consists of 2 bedrooms with closets and a half bath. There are no other house occupants other than the guest(s) and owner.
One room is furnished with a new queen bed, the other is setup as private living space with a desk, TV area, and a futon couch that can be used for an additional guest if need be. Several dressers and two large closets provide a lot of storage. The upstairs is freshly painted and bright.
Guests will share the shower, kitchen, and living room and outdoor area with the home owner. The house is simply decorated, has lots of light, an open kitchen, and a large fenced yard with a BBQ, fire pit, garden, patio area, and hammock. The house has laundry and high speed wireless internet. A window air conditioning unit is installed in the bedroom during summer months. There is a small workout space in the basement for your use.
I usually prefer longer term guests and cleaning past the initial and final cleaning are the responsibility of the tenant. Towels and sheets are provided, but laundry is up to you. I fill it with TP and Kleenex initially and provide cleaning supplies for your use.
Owner is a single, professional female (38) who works normal hours (7-6). I enjoy wine, being outdoors, and will have small dinner parties. Generally I'm quiet and respectful. I keep the house clean and clutter free. I am fluent in Spanish.
There is a large dog and a small French bulldog puppy in the house. Oscar is a 7 year old boxer who is well behaved and in the downstairs during the day with a doggie door. The puppy is a puppy and she is crated when I'm not home. Both are very friendly and have free reign (within the bounds of well trained dogs) downstairs and in the yard, so you should enjoy dogs. They are not allowed to be in the kitchen while food is out and they aren't on the furniture. They are gated out of the guest area upstairs.
House is located in SE Portland in the South Tabor neighborhood. It is a residential, single family home setting in an up and coming neighborhood. Less than 5 minutes walk to 3 bus lines (Division, Powell, and 82nd) and less than a mile from Mt. Tabor park and 50/60th and Division restaurant/food district. The bus trip to downtown is 25-30 minutes without traffic. A good solution for someone looking for a quiet neighborhood and lots of space within the city. There is also easy airport access and Car-to-Go and Uber and Lyft are easily accessible. The neighborhood is a quiet family neighborhood that's great for walking or jogging with several parks close by.

Some of my guests are now very good friends, some were renters after their AirBnB stay. I am generally open to sharing space when I am home. Guests are welcome to join in if people come over or often if we go out.

I prefer longer term guests/renters. My older dog, although a total sweetpea with humans and his established canine friends, he is not trustworthy with cats and has been attacked by dogs, so he is fearful of unknown dogs. Although the space is separated, I don't take other pets for the sanity of all involved. The puppy, although very sweet and good for a puppy, is enough chaos!
I take a shower between 6 and 7am on work days. The dogs are here during the day. They are gated or can get into the yard but should not be let out of the house and yard. They are gated out of the upstairs rental area. Common areas should be kept clean and clutter free.
The house is a non-smoking house.
I'm single, professional, and 38. I enjoy working on the house, getting outdoors often, and the great food and wine that Portland has to offer. I am active and exercise daily including jogging and dragon boat racing. I am pretty quiet during the week and am in and out on the weekends. I read a lot as well as enjoy movies and an occasional TV series on Netflix. In the fall I'm pretty addicted to college football. I am flent in Spanish.
