About Being a Guest

Guests will share the two bathrooms in the house, as well as the kitchen. Guests are vetted by me, and I screen guests to make sure that they are responsible and respectful.

I ask guests to clean up after themselves in the common areas; and I hire a professional cleaner to  clean the common spaces once a month.

I supply common goods, such as linens, towels, kitchenware, paper towels, toilet pager, and hand soap . All you need to bring is your own toiletries and clothes. This is a plug and play setup for light travelers.

Pets aren't allowed at the guest house. Though I love pets, some guests may not like pets, so I can't allow them. Sorry.

About Us

My partner and I live in a small house in the backyard --an "accessory dwelling unit". It is a completely separate structure with separate entrances, but both units are on the same property. You can read more about our ADU here: http://pdxadu.blogspot.com/ and more about ADUs generally, here: http://accessorydwellings.org/.

We also run a boutique hotel on Alberta Street called Caravan- The Tiny House Hotel. We're sort of in our thirties. We lead fun, active lives. We have a sweet cat named Leo, and we have a dog named Sati that uses the fenced backyard.

We look forward to having you stay at the house.
