In the inner NE quadrant, the room features a queen bed and big pocket doors which lead to the living room. Shared bath.
Walk to the Lloyd, Moda and Oregon Convention Centers, catch transit to and from PDX and downtown. Enjoy Portland with a bed for two. There's room for a third in the non-private living room if needed. Car2Go, Zipcar, & Getaround nearby.
You are getting a comfortable bed in a cozy, perhaps elegant, room. The curtains keep the light out, and opening the pocket doors brings the north light in and expands the space into the shared living room when open. When closed, the pocket doors are solid.
The amenities are decidedly not Ikea or Target.
The room is near the only bathroom in the house.
The flat is generally a quiet place without regular TV or radio going. Sometimes there's occasional music.
If more than two guests for this room, additional guests are in the living room on foam pads. The living room does not offer a lot of privacy, but the price is right.
Electrical outlets do not have covers in the room or elsewhere in the house. My home has stairs without safety gates and interior doors are not always closed fully. Standard household chemicals and cleaners are stored in unlocked lower cabinets in the house. The house has heavy furniture, including dressers, bookshelves, and TVs, none of which are secured to avoid tipping or falling.
* Kitchen (stove, oven, refrigerator)
* Back yard
* Living room
* The shared bathroom has a clawfoot tub.
* Covered bike parking, if needed.
* Let me know if you want space at the dining room table. I prefer you eat at the table rather than in the room.
I prefer independent guests, and I'm happy to provide information about the area, restaurants, and getting around Portland. I have some maps and guides.
The rental does not include breakfast. If you do want to cook, I have basics like oil, vinegar, salt, mustard, spices. No need to buy that kind of stuff. Ask, and I'll let you know.
I usually have an umbrella or two around. Let me know if you need one and don't see one in your room.
This is an adult house with antiques and some delicate things not suited for most children.
The 1911 building has old plumbing that should be treated gently. It functions normally, but shouldn't be abused. "Flushables" are not permitted.
This is not a particularly quiet refuge. It's in the center of the city, and there are sounds in the neighborhood, and some from the house.
One of my first guests, who identified as a particularly light sleeper, was not able to rest as much as he'd like. Otherwise, I've had no other mention, other that it's quiet. If you are unsure, bring earplugs. If you forget, I often have some around.
I try to keep a low/no scent household. While it is not scent-free, please consider using perfume/cologne and hairspray outside.
There's WiFi for guests. (25+Mbps)
Dining room is available, but it's also my office. So, you can eat there, but it may not be private. Let me know if you would like a place at the table for your stay. I prefer you eat at the table rather than in the room.
I have a housemate in the attic on the 3rd floor.
Some interior original mortise locks have new, custom-made bit keys (often called skeleton keys). They can be a bit trickier and delicate than modern locks, and certainly more fun. Ask for help if you would like it. The pocket doors will be locked when you arrive. The are fully functional and also delicate. Open them with gentleness, and ask for help if they are too tricky.
You are independent, coming and going with your own keys. You keep the house locked when you come and go. We can chat, and I'll check in with you if we cross paths.
Let's talk about pets. Generally: small-ish dogs are OK. Cats are not.
Quiet Hours: 10PM-8AM - Normal household sounds are fine anytime!
Respect me and the neighbors by keeping a peaceful atmosphere around the house and neighborhood.
Clean up after yourself.
There's no smoking anywhere in the building, and outdoor smokers must ensure that their smoke does not move into open windows or public areas, like the front porch.
While there's not a prohibition of drugs and alcohol use, drug and alcohol use should not be apparent. No illegal drugs in the house, and alcohol use in the house should be low, like one or two beers or glasses of wine a night.
WiFi use is limited to legal uses. No illegal downloads , P2P or BitTorrents on the house network.
Communicate about your plans to use the house (like if you'll be cooking dinner, taking a long bath) so we can coordinate. If you plan to use the kitchen more than getting drinking water or putting leftovers in the refrigerator, let me know. I'll keep it cleaner.
***This is not a place to have a party.***
从2017年10月21日 - 2017年10月31日起最少住宿4晚。
Quiet man who doesn't drink, do drugs or smoke. Eats mostly organic, including meat. Can embrace a vegetarian or vegan guest.
Work from home and on phone conferences occasionally. Sometimes, I need a low level of background noise during business hours, roughly 8AM to 6PM Pacific Time.
I enjoy going out to see movies on the big screen. I cook a lot at home, so the house often smells good. I travel as much as my budget will allow, and try to stay in Airbnb places when I don't have friends at my destination.
