QUIET SE HOME ON TREE LINED STREET

Portland House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6 to 10

Welcome to our ranch style home in SE Portland just South of Mt. Tabor. It's on a quiet tree lined street with plenty of parking.

Recent testimonial:'We spent a wonderful weekend at this house. The place is very clean. There were 4 of us staying at this place and we had everything we needed. There were plenty of parking space and the neighborhood is very safe. But we didn't need the car that much as the bus service is awesome in Portland and we were able to get to downtown and back late at night.' Mikhail K

There are 3 large bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom with a porcelain tub and shower. So there is room for 6 people in 3 beds. Then i can provide air mattresses for 2 to 4 more, and there's a comfie sofa and love seat available.

The largest of the 3 bedrooms has a Queen sized bed with a very comfortable pillow topped mattress. The room measures 12' x 15' with a large walk in closet. There is also a desk and office chair, and a small reading library.

The second bedroom also has a Queen sized pillow topped mattress. And a walk in closet, desk and ergonomic office chair. It measures 11'x15'.

The third bathroom has a full sized, pillow topped bed. It also has a dresser, a desk and ergonomic office chair, and measures 11'x15'. It has a reading library of fiction, metaphysical, and non fiction books.

Each bedroom has super high speed (30mbps) internet/wifi.

There is a full service kitchen with all the amenities, including microwave, toaster, coffeemaker, coffee grinder, blender, and juicer.

There is a dining room area with a cherry wood table set for 4 people (there is an extension available to widen the table). There is a larger than life size Buddha statue from a temple in Cambodia in the corner, remnants of a retreat center the owner founded many years ago in Portland.

The living room has 2 sofas and a plasma HDTV with cable, including HBO and On Demand. There is also a DVD player.

There is a patio that is a wonderful place to sit and hang out, and a large backyard with a National Heritage Sequoia Tree, a pear tree, and a gingko tree. There is also an organic garden, with fresh tomatoes and other vegetables.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There is a mandatory damage waiver fee that is $49.50 and protects you for up to $2500 in damages.

There is a daylight basement on the premises, which can be part of the rental. it includes 2 very large sleeping spaces, a bathroom/shower/sink, and a kitchenette. This space is separated from the main floor by a door that can be locked.

Usually the owner is living in that area. It has its own separate entrance and exit.

Important: During the week, there are a few people who manage my business from a small office in the basement. They are usually here from 9:30 am to 2pm. They also have access to the garage, which is used as our warehouse.

The washer and dryer are in the downstairs section of the house. You are free to use them; it's $10 a load, and that includes the detergent. You may have to speak with John and give notice to get access to the downstairs.

There are also 2 cats on the premises, who are indoor outdoor and stay with the owner. They roam around the yard and may be available for petting. If you let them in the upstairs, please make sure you let them out at some point; they have no way out on their own.

I've been successfully renting this property for 4 years now. I've been on VRBO for almost 2 years, and half of my bookings come from this site.

Here are some testimonials from folks who have been here recently:

'John was the consummate host! He welcomed us with a bottle of wine, a piece of chocolate (dark!) and bottle of water on every bed. He was very easy to get in touch with about any questions. Parking is very easy in the neighborhood. The house is near a lively and dynamic part of town with incredible restaurants and vintage shopping. I would definitely recommend staying here'. Ali S.

'We spent a wonderful weekend at this house. The place is very clean.

There were 4 of us staying at this home and we had everything we needed.

There was plenty of parking space and the neighborhood is very safe.

But we didn't need the car that much as the bus service is awesome in Portland and we were able to get to downtown and back late at night.'

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5
This place is exceptionally clean, comfortable and interesting. There is a pleasant deck and backyard. Six of us (3 couples) stayed in the upstairs section without feeling crowded. I recommend this place highly.
One note - there are are a couple of cats that apparently come with the house that wander through now and then. They were no problem and are mentioned in the description, but don't take this house if this would bother you.

Owner's Response: Dear Kate: Thank you for your kind remarks. I'm sorry I was out of town while you were here.
I'm glad you had a good time, and i hope my home will be part of your fond memories of your time in Portland.
With regards to the cats, there is a door separating the upstairs and downstairs so the cats cannot get in to the upstairs section you rented unless that door is left open.
I hope you can come back again. Make sure you mention you are a returning guest and you get an automatic 10% discount on your stay. And you are eligible for a free weekend this fall (we have a raffle and choose one past tenant for a free weekend each fall.)

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5
The place was clean, comfortable, and a short bus ride (or good walk) from all the shops, restaurants, and bars on Division and Hawthorne. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and a great tour of the place. The only downside was the hot tub was out of order... I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Derric for your kind words. You and your friends were very respectful of the space and i really appreciate that.
I'm glad things worked out well and you had an amazing time here.
I will make sure that the notes about the hot tub not being a part of the rental are more visible. I hope to have the tub either removed or upgraded in the near future.
Please tell your friends about my home and make sure you ask for a return visit discount next time you are in town.
Kind Regards,
John

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5
My husband and his mother stayed at this location for a week. The pictures and description of the house were spot on. The house is immaculate and well maintained. They had the good fortune of meeting John, the owner, and liked him very much. John is well traveled and has a lot of art and reading material available. The furnishing were very comfortable, especially the beds. It should be noted that there are people living/working in another part of the house which means there is a consideration of noise level. For example, no shoes can be worn in the house. It's all beautiful hard wood floors. This no-shoes policy was difficult for my 88 year old mother-in-law and my 13 month old grandson who was just learning to walk. We would definitely consider renting from John again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Christine for taking the time to let people know your experience.

I wish i would have known about your Grandmother's situation, the no shoes is primarily for cleanliness, minimal impact, but i'm sure we can find some indoor slippers that would work. That's what we've used in the past with people with feet problems.

Just to clarify, the child was a (noisy) visitor doing what babies do, running and jumping and yelling. Not a great match for this location, but happy to accommodate a visit.

The help is only here Monday to Friday from around 10am to 2pm, and often there is no one downstairs, since I travel a great deal.

I do hope you get to come back next year to see the family again. I enjoyed our conversations.

So. Tabor home

  • 4 of 5
House was very comfortable, well equipped, and located well for our needs. Owner, JJ, was most welcoming and responsive.
The shared downstairs space was unexpected, imposed restrictions on laundry use; and noise level / proximity of several other tenants made night sleep difficult for a few days.
JJ indicated this was an unusual short-term situation.
I'd rent this house again but want clarification about presence of other tenants in the home.

Owner's Response: Dear Gita: sorry for the unexpected noise level downstairs. that portion of the house will rarely be rented in the future, and i will make sure to ask more questions in the future.
I've been doing this awhile, now, and thanks to folks like you, i keep learning more about what works and what doesn't.
The laundry facilities are in another section of the house, and are available upon request, as stated in the house policies and the VRBO listing. I just need some notice.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and would love to see you again next year.

We were welcomed with a delicious bottle of red wine and a tour of the property. John was very informing and a great host. The rooms fit us perfectly and the house was clean. And the guide was helpful.
Thanks John
