El alojamiento

Oh Hi!

Please be sure to read the entire description as well as the house rules and message me with any questions whatsoever! I know, it's a lot of words, but you can do it, I believe in you!

*CONDITION*
Like a secret garden where low-brow meets Liberace. We want you to feel like you can kick your shoes off, drink a beer, and just be yourself.
To avoid any confusion imagonna spell out a few need-to-knows... The house was built in about 1890. Through the decades, there have been a patchwork of weird repairs. From the outside, the place is really pretty non-descript - not fancy-shmancy. Also, the ceilings are 7'2", so a few inches lower than normal. Point is... it isn't brand new and untouched by time's meddling hands. It has character... it has scars... it has stories. And I love that about it. But... it's not for everyone and we've all lived the saying that you can't please everyone all the time. But I try.

So it isn't perfect, but if you focus on what it does have rather than what it doesn't, I hope that you will experience something from the past that modern living has abandoned. Something important.

*NUMBER OF GUESTS*
This ground floor suite has only 1 Full size mattress with optional memory-foam topper. There is a bonus room off the hallway with a fold-out couch, but as is the nature with fold-outs, it is not as comfortable as a real bed. So please keep that in mind if you're looking for separate sleeping arrangements.

*ABOUT *
Sometimes called the "Peacock Suite", this is the ground floor of a large 3-story house with its own outside entry. It stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Step outside your door and watch the nice people walking their dogs, children, and themselves!

Decorated in a mix of 50's, 60's and 70's - lots of hidden gems! About 890 Sq Ft.

*MAIN BEDROOM*
The main bedroom is in the back of the apartment. There are two windows as you can see in the photos, but also lined curtains as well as front privacy curtains so if you like it light in there, you can have it light, and completely dark, you can have it that way too! There's a mood-lighing valance over the bed and dual-controlled electric blanket.

*BONUS ROOM*
A bonus room off of the hallway is a chill spot to read a book or to spread out. There's mood lighting in this room as well so you can adjust to your level of comfort.

*KITCHEN*
Super sweet kitchen with pantry cabinets, gas stove, 70's banquette, and ample counter space. There's a place for everything, and everything is in its place. Some spices, a bar cart, pots and pans, a Mocha Pot for making grrrreat coffee, teapot, teas, martini glasses, so on and so on.

*LIVING AREA*
There's a record player and lots of fun records, a 50's curvy sparkly couch, red velvet chairs, 2 barcarts in the hallway, and a gas heater that keeps is super cozy in the winter. Large picture window witih a screen that opens, mirrors, cute swag lamps, and a 60's peacock wall hanging with a jeweled headpiece.

*BATHROOM*
****If you're over 6'2" tall, you might have to maintain poor posture while showering since the bathroom remodel required us to raise the tub a few inches. *****

Small but bright bathroom with a shower and tub and all the other bathroomy stuff!

*LOW-TECH/HI-TECH*
There is no TV or microwave. They're both kinda bad for you. :) There's also a sweet record player and I've stocked the space with an assortment of vinyl for you to play. We've also got wifi, so if you are the type who likes to stay in and watch a movie, then bring a device.

*PRIVACY/CONFIDENTIALITY*
We honor a strict confidentiality policy, so if you're shy, starting over, leaving behind, in transition, famous, infamous, handsome, hideous, or anything in between - we'll leave you be and won't tell anyone you're here. This is a really wonderful place to hide from the world too if that's where you're at. This is your private place, it has magic powers.

Servicios y zonas comunes

You get your own private guest suite - the whole ground floor - with all the usual stuff - and more! And you can hang out in the shared side yard too - there's plenty of space to sit or make a fire in the fire pit, or sit under the cherry tree.

Atención a los huéspedes

I'll be there to settle you in, do a walk through and answer any questions, but from there it's as much of as little communication as you prefer. I'm always available day or night via text message, but I'll stay outta your way if you're shy, private, or grumpy. And I'm also around if you have questions, you're always welcome to hang out in the yard if I'm having a sip with friends or other guests.

As far as checkout, you don't even need to see me if you don't want since there are keyboxes, but I do appreciate a courtesy text letting me know that you've checked out.

Otros aspectos destacables

**PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS BEFORE REQUESTING A RESERVATION:**

*SUITABILITY*
This property is probably not suitable for families with elementary school-age children or younger.

I encourage people to choose a place that suits their lifestyle first. You'll have a much better experience if our lifestyle and environment compliments your own. So, if you know you'd prefer a climate-controlled condo with stainless steel appliances, manicured lawn, and Ikea furnishings, you prolly won't appreciate or enjoy our home as much as those who appreciate creative re-purposing, thrift stores, DIY crafts, recycling, and working-class cocktail culture.

If you look at the pictures and description and your reaction is unfavorable, you set yourself up to be disappointed from the outset. But if you look at the pictures and clap your hands or are excited by a place with the kind of style and character that you'd like to step into for a while, then I like you already and I'd love to welcome you here to a culture that gets it.

*NO MEANIES*
If you are offended by other tenants, neighbors, or myself who support marriage equality, believe that #blacklivesmatter, are members or allies of the LGBTQ community, or are aligned with other similar viewpoints, then I emphatically urge you to look elsewhere. Buh-bye. Yaaay!

*VERIFICATION*
With rare exception, I only accept reservations from tenants that have completed at least 3 Airbnb verifications and who have complete profiles with information about themselves and a clear photograph of you.

I only accept reservations from the tenants that will be actually staying here - I don't accept reservations from parents, children, friends, etc. on behalf of potential guests. Those who wish to make a reservation must be the ones actually staying in our home. This is standard Airbnb policy as well.

CHECK-IN (AFTER 3 PM)
I'll message you a day or two before you're arrival date to arrange your check-in time. You can schedule your check-in for any time after 3 pm. Once you've pinned down a time for your arrival, I'll arrange the cleaning/stocking schedule around that. So if you're running late, that's more than OK, there's no rush just keep me posted and we'll roll with it (more time to get stuff done rather than less is a good thing). BUT... if you're earlier than expected, the apartment won't be ready and you'll have to wait. I know, booo, but thanks for understanding. Fortunately, there are about a million places within walking distance to eat, drink, read, shop, etc. while you wait.

PLEASE REMOVE YOUR SHOES
Please please pretty please take your shoes off as soon as you come in the door. And please please pretty please don't puttem back on until you're headed back out the door. If you follow this rule I'll be so so happy and so will everyone else.

PLEASE BE GENTLE
Slamming doors scares sleeping people awake, startles people like me who have what I call 'hamster hearts', and it's also how stuff gets damaged. Please close doors gracefully, like a gazelle.

KEY EXCHANGE
A personalized combination will be provided for the push-button lockbox outside the unit. The key stays in the box and the combination changes on the regular, so there are no concerns about lost keys, lock-outs, or duplicate keys.

SORRY, NO PETS
I love furblins but I also want to be sensitive to those who are sensitive. There's a sweet and demure feral kitty that hangs out in the yard and who I've been feeding for 9 years (and allowed to pet for 2). There are lots of friendly cats in the neighborhood who will flip and roll for you and lots of people walking their friendly goofy dogs. But this apartment itself is pet-free.

SMOKING
Smoking is OK outside in the side yard if you promise to be good and use the ashtrays so that I don't have to pick up soggy cigarette butts with my delicate lady hands.

NOISE
Please observe an 11pm to 10am rule of thumb with respect to loudness - in other words a modest volume. We encourage guest to come alive between 10 am and 11 pm - play some ELO and sing along, teach yourself new dance moves, laugh!

PARTIES AND EVENTS
Please no groups or parties unless expressed ahead of time as a part of your booking. This is a fabulous place to host an event, and we'd be happy to book the suite for that purpose with an extra negotiable deposit and cleaning fee.

LOST AND FOUND
Occasionally people leave personal items behind. All rooms are thoroughly cleaned after each departure. I promise you that anything you forget will be safely and discreetly set aside for your retrieval.

I had a FANTASTIC stay at Meg's place. The apartment is super charming and the theme was gorgeous and very tastefully done. There are plenty of supplies and everything I could need was there. The apartment is very centrally located within the Belmont/Hawthorne/Division streets and it was very easy to walk to anything you'd want or need. Best of all, Meg herself couldn't have been better. She was very friendly, very attentive and very proactive when dealing with any potential issues. I very strongly recommend Meg and any place she is hosting. Thanks Meg!!

Meg was awesome and welcomed us with super helpful info and hospitality. Her place is wonderfully decorated with a quirky and charming atmosphere. It was like a museum of cool vintage kitsch. We loved the neighborhood- close to bikes we could rent, nice coffee and food, cool bars, groceries on a friendly quiet street.

Meg was a great host who was always quick to respond. The place looks exactly as shown, and it was fun to stay in such a unique rental. It's important to take note of the height limitations mentioned in the description, especially when it comes to the bathtub - my husband and I are both 5'9" and we had to crouch a bit to get under the showerhead.

Megs place is amazing. Right in the hip swanky Hawthorne and Belmont area. Location couldn't be better. The place itself feels very homey and is very spacious. The decor is perfectly Portland and Meg is super helpful and recommended us to many places and things to not miss during our short stay. Can't wait to come back

Meg had great communication and directions prior to arrival, she met me and did a quick walk-through, and then gave me my privacy. This place is absolutely charming, quirky and spacious! The location is ideal for walking nearly everywhere (and close to all transit systems), the neighborhood is quiet, and I felt very safe both inside the apartment and hanging out on the front patio area. It felt very much like a "home away from home"; I loved my stay here!

Great host, great location - terrific! Meg spent 3 hours talking with me about Portland when I first arrived - I had many questions, and she most kind, patient, and helpful. Her place is ideally located in a quiet neighborhood, with shops and restaurants just blocks away. Couldn't be better!

Oh hi!

I like shiny objects, I find it cathartic to paint things gold, and I absolutely love Portland and this neighborhood. It’s my mission to provide people in all stages of travel, transition, and transformation with a soft and friendly place to land in-between where you came from and where you’re going. For some, change, travel, and uncertainty are thrilling; for others it takes more courage. Either way, it helps to be surrounded by shiny objects, colored lights, and soft blankets. I’ve created a grown-up playhouse for you – my vision of an idealized 1970’s childhood. This is a safe and private place where you can be yourself.

I try to create more than just a place to sleep and sit - there's a warmth and a silent light-hearted narrative in the spaces that I hope you will enjoy and appreciate. And if you're at all interested in 50's - 70's vintage, this might be even more suited to your style.

By day I'm a software engineer - specializing in Oracle ERP B2B and A2A XML integrations. So if you wanna nerd out and talk about tech, yes! If you wanna talk about rainbows and puppy dogs instead, yes!

That's all for now I guess!

Bye!

Meg
