Description
The Space

Our sun-filled room is right in the heart of Portland's quiet, residential East End, and offers easy access to so many of the great things our city has to offer.

Guest Access

Guests will have their own private bedroom with a bed, small desk, and chair. This room has it's own entrance. Guests will have access to our kitchen, common living area, and shared bathroom. If you're staying on a Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday, you'll have exclusive use of our deck. We rotate "deck nights" with the two other units in our building, which is why it's not always available.

Interaction with Guests

Generally, we're at work during the day, and often out in the evenings doing something fun. We're generally outside enjoying Portland as much as possible, and expect you will be too. We're happy to answer any questions you might have about what do to, what to eat, etc. If there's something else we might be able to help with (e.g. "Hey, can I borrow your iron?" or "Can we have some tea?", we trust you'll ask and we'll do our best to accommodate. Otherwise we'll expect you to make yourself at home and come and go as you please.

The Neighborhood

There's so much to love about Portland's East End! It's a cozy residential neighborhood with great little shops, restaurants, and music and art venues. We love being so close to Portland's Eastern Promenade and love being able to walk downtown. It's easy to access from 295, a 15 minute drive from the airport, a 5 minute drive from the ferry terminal, and an easy jaunt across the bridge to head south.

Getting Around

Route 1 of Portland's Metro Bus passes about a block from our house every half hour. We're about 1 mile from the heart of the Old Port. It's an easy walk, or an inexpensive taxi ride.

Other Things to Note

As you'll see in our photos, the room does have a slanted wall. We're both around 5'9" and don't have any trouble walking through..... but if you're quite tall you'd probably have to duck down a bit to walk around the bed. We do work hard to keep our home clean: we clean between each guest and provide freshly washed towels and sheets. However, you are staying in our home. Try as we might, we occasionally leave a few crumbs on the counter, or a little clutter on the shared kitchen table.

Place's rules
Our house rules are pretty simple. No smoking. No pets. Be kind to our cat Gustav. We ask that you respect our neighbors, and keep it quiet past 10pm. We certainly expect you to go out and take advantage of all Portland has to offer. You're welcome to come home at any time, but please don't bring the whole bar with you! Oh, and have fun. Enjoy our beautiful city while you're here!

About Sarah And Chris
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
