Our newly-renovated, 1910 Portland Basement Bungalow space is nestled in the middle of hip Southeast Portland. Your guest retreat offers plenty of space to relax and unwind after a busy day of exploring PDX!

The space

Our family welcomes all people (nationalities, belief systems, sexual orientation(s), backgrounds, etc.), as does our neighborhood.

Street parking is free and gains you quick access to your private backyard entrance onto the property. Your private guest spaces are located in the basement floor of our home, connected to the homes' central heating and air conditioning. We can sleep up to 5 guests at a time (2 on a queen sized master bed, and 2 more on queen floor mattress, or, 1 more on queen-sized, electrically powered inflatable mattress). Your space comes furnished with cable and WIFI, a rolling space heater, a personal fridge, a 42" TV, a microwave, light snacks, coffee and coffee maker, electric hot water heater and an assortment of teas, a hair dryer, bathroom and dish soaps, a clothing iron, and a set of microwave safe dish-ware.

Creston Park, a 2 minute walk from the property, offers an outdoor swimming pool to guests staying in the summer months (between mid-June through late-August). Our backyard provides comfort and entertainment. Guests may enjoy a warm fire at our fire pit, or a walk about our garden. Our property offers both shade and sun during the summer months.

Guest access

The entire 600 square feet of basement space is for guests. We only ask that you permit us to use our own laundry facilities every now and then.

Interaction with guests

We seek to honor individual guest needs for communication and are flexible. We promise to show you our favorite things about our space at check in and chat with you at least once a day, but are not intrusive. We welcome conversation as well as respect strict travel schedules while you are with us.

Other things to note

We are a small family: husband, wife, toddler, and pup. There will be times when our toddler acts like a toddler and our puppy acts like a puppy, however, guests that have stayed with us say we are so quiet that they do not know when we are home! We believe in open communication and leading with love. We are extremely respectful of guest quiet times and strive to meet our guests' needs whenever possible. Your comfort in our home, along with having a fun experience in Portland, are our priorities.

We have an indoor-only cat and indoor/outdoor shepherd puppy. Our family lives on the main floor throughout the home during your stay.

Very comfortable space. Easy access and privacy. Dori and Dave are excellent hosts and makes sure you have everything you need. Location was good, a little further away than we anticipated but still easy to get around.

Very lovely family! Space is beautiful and neighbourhood is the perfect distance from the heart of the city. Our 10 month old was able to crawl around everywhere safely.

We greatly enjoyed our stay with Dori and Dave as their space offered us a quiet and comfortable resting place in great proximity to our family in Portland. The one bedroom and living room space were well designed. We loved the spaciousness and access to features such as a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Both Dori and Dave were very respectful of our needs and offered suggestions when asked. I look forward to future stays with them if possible!

Dori and Dave were great hosts! Their place was very clean and accurate to the pictures online. We loved all the intricate, hand-made wood work and felt very comfortable. Dori and Dave are the sweetest people and even brought us some pie! They were very communicative and checking in was a breeze. I'd definitely stay with them again!

Dori and Dave's place is clean and comfortable, making it easy to relax after a long day of traveling. We only met Dori and her daughter briefly, but they were super nice. The bathroom is updated and has an excellent shower. I'd definitely stay here again if I'm in the Portland area.

Dori And Dave User ProfileDori And Dave is a superhost.

Dori and Dave are both public school teachers, parents to a beautiful daughter. gardeners, and lovers of nature. Year-round, our family enjoys taking walks through Creston Park, eating at local restaurants and finding the best margarita joints in town, visiting the Portland Zoo and Children's Museum, and attending seasonal farmer's markets. We love tending to our garden, basking in the warm glow of the outdoor fire pit, caring for our small flock of hens, and gathering eggs for delicious breakfasts. During the summer, we love to camp, hike the trails, or visit the Pacific Ocean. We feel lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest.
