Who loves exploring the soul of the city? You do! You’ll love our place because it's clean, cozy, comfortable, and convenient! We welcome everybody - couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids). We've hosted hundreds of guests and look forward to hosting hundreds more.
No shoes in the house - we try to keep it clean for you.
Please note the kitchen is a shared space with us, your hosts. If you plan to cook in the kitchen please let us know in advance so we can coordinate use.
Please ensure all lights are off when you go to bed.
Please strip the sheets and pillowcases off the beds prior to departure. Leave the sheets and pillowcases, along with soiled towels, in a pile on the floor. We thank you!

If you have requested us to set up a second bed to accommodate your group, please note there is a $20 one-time fee to account for the additional labor, etc. This fee will be requested through Airbnb's "Resolution Center."
Absolutely no smoking of any kind in the house. Please respect a smoke-free environment in a home with children. We do not want to invoke your security deposit because you chose not to honor this house rule. Just be cool.
We're so glad you're interested in staying with us! Our household of four in the pulse of Portland is a snapshot of family life in this terrific city. Our two children, ages 7 and 11, inject moments of silliness, laughter, and drama into an otherwise tranquil and serene environment.
Our career paths reflect the cultural economy of Portland. Trained as a lawyer, I am an executive recruiter. I connect talented individuals with leadership roles in public service across the country. My wife Reba complements her naturopathic medical practice as a personal trainer. Our children attend a Spanish language immersion school embracing the reality of global interconnectedness.
We've called Portland home for 19 years. We know it well, love sharing our experiences and observations, and learning from our guests. Our family travels enthusiastically. If the opportunity presents itself, we'll surely be asking you about your home base. It brings us happiness to help you make the best of your stay in our community.
