My wife and I are heading to New Zealand, from November 30th, 2016 to January 31st, 2017 (two months spanning the new year). We're looking for a responsible couple or individual to move into our beloved home for that time. 

It's an incredible, beautiful, small, 1BR/1BA home, fully furnished. Here's an album of pictures of the unit.

The market value of this rental unit is $2,200/month but this rate is negotiable for those who can take care of our awesome pets: Leo, our adorable cat, and potentially our awesome dog Sati, during our absence. We already have a caretaker lined up for our dog, but if the renter is interested in taking care of Sati, that could also work out very well for Sati and us. 

Spacious, comfortable and private; 800 square feet with radiant-heated floors, and high ceilings. The ground floor living area has French doors opening onto a garden, an 8' x 5' movie projection wall with surround sound speaker, and an office. 

The fully equipped kitchen has dishwasher, microwave, gas stove, and fridge. Up the talavera tiled staircase is the bedroom with walk-in closet (1 w/split king tempurpedic adjustable bed), a washer/dryer, and a bathroom with shower + mosaic tiled tub with skylight. Art and color, and stained glass are everywhere, bathing the space with warm and magical light. Completely outfitted with linens, cookware, everything you need. 

The ADU is in a great walking neighborhood, 6 blocks south of the Alberta Arts District with hundreds of restaurants, bars and coffee shops, grocery stores, within a 20 minute walk. It's 15 min from downtown by car; with excellent bus routes nearby.

First and last's month's rent, plus $500 refundable security deposit. WiFi and all utilities included. No smokers.

If you're interested, please email me with a note about yourself and what you're doing in Portland. It's important to us to find a responsible renter(s) for our home. My wife and I would want to meet you in person before committing to this housing arrangement. I'm posting this unit this far in advance, in hope of finding just the right people. 

We're going to be traveling in New Zealand for this two month duration, departing the afternoon of November 30th, 2016, returning on January 31st, 2017.
