Our private detached garden studio sits in the heart of a quiet residential neighborhood and is a short stroll to top restaurants, food carts, and shopping in trendy Southeast Portland. The space is compact -- about 240sf! -- but cozy, bright and a perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring Portland!

The space
Our newly-renovated, cozy studio includes a new queen bed, vaulted ceilings, full bathroom, kitchenette, and small sitting area. It's fully detached from the main house, so offers complete privacy. Skylights, french doors, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows provide views of the west hills and flood the room with natural light, even on the grayest of drizzly Portland days. It's small --about 240sf-- but the space is well utilized with many amenities such as wireless Bluetooth speaker, Portland maps and guides, and comfy pillows and blankets to make it feel like home. It's best suited for guests seeking space to relax and recharge after a day of exploring Portland; If you're needing more of a "hangout spot" this may not be the best choice.

The studio has a full bathroom with shower (no tub). The kitchenette includes a mini fridge, sink, instant hot water, coffee maker, microwave and everything you need for reheating leftovers from the many restaurants and food carts nearby. Complementary tea and coffee are provided along with a long list of our favorite local restaurants.

Guest access
The detached studio sits at the end of our driveway within a fenced-in, beautifully landscaped garden behind our home. The patio in the back is shared space (although we rarely use it while we have guests) and there's a small outdoor space behind the studio with a bistro table and adirondack chair for the exclusive use of guests. They're both lovely spots to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine!

Other things to note
The curtains offer full privacy but they are not room-darkening and morning light really does stream through the windows, french doors and skylights! Although we do provide sleeping masks, if you require a dark room to sleep in our studio may not be the best fit. There is plenty of free street parking in front of our house. Body wash, shampoo & conditioner, towels, hair dryer, small ironing board, iron and other essentials are provided. We launder all linens in scent-free detergent, but please bring your own personal hygiene products if you are sensitive to fragrances. There are empty under-bed drawers in lieu of closet and dresser space. You can find hangers in one of the drawers and clothes can be hung from the hooks on the wall and/or the drapery rods. The studio has its own adjustable thermostat and air-conditioning unit -- keep the space as warm or as cool as you'd like!

Location

Portland, Oregon, United States

We love living in the heart of the Richmond neighborhood! Nestled on a quiet, residential street, we're a short stroll (about 1/3mi) to two main restaurant and retail districts of SE Portland--Division Street and Hawthorne Blvd. A 4-block walk brings you to a bus stop that can get you most anywhere else in town. Our location is best for guests wanting to experience Portland from a local's perspective; If you'd rather be in closer proximity to downtown touristy areas, we may not be the best option.

A short walk from the studio brings you to food, shopping and entertainment (to name a few of our favorites): PokPok, Salt & Straw, Ava Gene's, Bollywood Theater, Blue Star Donuts, Food Cart pods, Little T Bakery, St Honore, as well as a myriad of boutiques, shops and independent movie theaters on Hawthorne, Clinton and Division streets.

You'll likely meet some friendly neighborhood cats during your stay, but due to severe allergies, our studio is animal- and allergen-free. You may also spot our eyepatch-wearing, kung fu-performing neighbor (and good friend) practicing in the street, sometimes alongside his 5yo daughter and toddler son. He’s a world-renowned martial artist and teacher, is super friendly and adds some true Portland character to our otherwise sleepy neighborhood!
