Recently renovated - and very cozy - daylight basement in a split level midcentury ranch style home. The entire basement floor is yours and includes a queen size bed, sitting area, fridge, microwave, etc. You'll be surrounded by ancient Doug Fir - wall to wall wood paneling / window framing - and midcentury decor. Centrally located in the inner SE quad, very close to downtown, Reed College, restaurants, bars and shops - Sellwood, Westmoreland, Division/Clinton, Hawthorne, Belmont/Mt. Tabor...
During your stay, the entire basement floor is yours. It is spacious and cozy. I will not come down for any reason unless you ask me to.
In addition to the bed and furniture, your space includes a mini refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, electric kettle, and French press.
Complementary items include bottled water (stocked in the refrigerator), coffee (typically, Peet's Coffee: Major Dickason's Blend), sugar, cutlery, plates, bowls, glasses, napkins, etc.
Additionally, fresh towels and a blow dryer are provided for your convenience and use.
The queen bed includes a very recently purchased (as of April '17) memory foam mattress. It is extremely comfortable.
The basement includes a half bath. To use the shower, you will need to come up the stairs to the main level's hallway bathroom. I have a full bathroom in my room and only use the hallway bathroom sparingly while guests are present.
If you need to hang anything, you are more than welcome to use the hallway closet on the main floor. There is plenty of room and plenty of hangers available to you.
If you need to do laundry, you also have access to the unfinished portion of the basement in which the washer and dryer are located. A very old and friendly cat named Lucy lives in this part of the house. She is terrified of everything. If you see her at all, she will likely dart as quickly as she can to her favorite hiding spot. Even at 17 years old, she is still fast when she feels she needs to be.
I work from home. I am generally around and very approachable. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the space, the neighborhood, and Portland. I've lived in the house for two years and Portland for nearly 10 years. I am absolutely available to provide recommendations for things to do, places to see, restaurants and bars. Just ask.
My 10 year-old son lives with me 50% of the time. While you may end up staying at a time that he is with me, when school is in session (it begins in late August), he is typically in bed by 9:30pm and up by 7am. We are very aware and respectful to not be too loud when guests are present, but we'll occasionally make some noise as we go about our day-to-day activities. It's worth noting that my son is a 'business partner' in this venture, as he receives a 'percentage cut' of the 'gross monthly receipts' based on his willingness to assist with cleaning/turning the space after each guest. I can assure you, he is just as interested and invested in ensuring you have a lovely stay as I am.
In all, our home is a very cozy, warm and fun loving place. We look forward to having you stay.

We share access to the same door, the front door. There is a coded entry on the front door. If for any reason you need to check-in at a time that I am not home, I can easily provide you the code to get in the door. I typically reach out either the day of or day before with check-in instructions that includes the code.
