Description

Daylight Basement Studio W/Queen Bed, Tiled Galley & Bathroom, Private Entrance.

We have enjoyed hosting travelers for 9 years now, first in our daylight basement studio, Auntie’s Hideaway (#724637), and most recently with the completion of our stand-alone backyard cabin, Grandpa’s Bunkhouse (#594594).

Each of our studios has a queen bed to accommodate 2 guests. For those traveling with children or smaller adult parties of 3, there are couches in each studio that serve after a fashion.

BRIEF GUEST COMMENTS:

“A 5-star shower that is the best by far we’ve ever seen. Plus, there is a big window for light in the lovely sitting area and a fab queen bed. Jean goes for quality from the mattress to the linens. She has obviously put a lot of love into her property, and it shows!” Bob and Beth, Arizona, 2014

“The air is totally crisp and clean in this daylight basement studio. Paint entirely up-to-date and terra cotta Mexican pavers on the galley that are to die for. They go the extra mile here.” Erin and Todd, BC, 2011

“The thing about Auntie’s is that it’s just minutes away from everything. Two blocks off Sandy Boulevard that takes you to downtown in 20 minutes, and around the corner from Fremont St. that leads to 3 of Portland’s newest hip neighborhoods. So great coffee, food, sights, and wine are all to be had easily from this lovely, unique homestay.” Gabon and Charles, Chicago, 2013

“We recommend Jean’s home hands down, and we are seasoned travelers. Great value. Hip host.” Vic and Nan, Bay Area, 2012

STUDIO DESCRIPTION

Auntie’s Hideaway really was our very proper Aunt’s suite for 20 years. And if it passed Auntie Kirsten’s standards, we think it will pass those of the most discriminating guests.

We’ve updated Auntie’s Hideaway with new queen bed from an ethical local company, a 5-star terra cotta shower, gorgeous tiling in the galley and bathroom and a double egress window. The result is an artful, rustic daylight basement studio full of family history that reflects what Portland, Oregon is all about.

AMENITIES:

-Private Entrance

-Queen bed with quality mattress and linens from LL Bean

-Galley kitchen with pounded copper sink

-Bathroom with shower in terra cotta tiles, hand-painted Talavera sink from Mexico

-Wireless internet, high speed

Library of good literature (We are happily TV-free in our main house and Aunties-if you must have television, we suggest you check out our backyard cabin, Grandpa’s Bunkhouse)

-Ample free street parking

-Front patio outside egress windows

-Side patio for outdoor dining & lounging (LL Bean table and hammock)

-Weber gas grill

-Sustainable no-chem gardens front, back, curbside

We are located in NE Portland just off Sandy Blvd which makes for easy access to downtown (20 min) , the airport (10 min), and The Columbia River Gorge. We are also 15 min from the Beaumont, Mississippi Ave, and the Alberta Arts District. Please scroll down more information on our family-oriented, safe neighborhood.

FELINE ALERT: We have 3 cats who roam the premises—including getting invited into the studios on occasion—so we cannot host travelers with allergies.

PARKING: Free street parking in front of the house for one vehicle per guest party. We do not have room for second vehicles for guests.

PETS: Dogs and cats are welcome. Cats may hang out, but we ask that dogs not be left unattended in the studios without prior arrangements. Please see our pet guest fee.

TELEPHONE: ATT plans and iphone6 users get perfect reception in this basement studio. Other plans and phones can experience some problems depending on tower traffic.

INTERNATIONAL CREDIT CARDS: There is an additional charge for using international cards. Please inquire.

LONGSTAYS: Our studios are appropriate for shorter stays and we do not offer monthly rates.

MORE INFORMATION ON OUR HOME AND NEIGHBORHOOD

We Johnson’s are of the mind that life is art, and we’ve had this bungalow since 1950 when Grandma and Grandpa downsized for their retirement. So whether you choose our lower level basement studio with galley and stunning shower (Auntie’s Hideaway #724637) or our stand-alone backyard studio with vaulted ceilings (Grandpa’s Bunkhouse #594594), expect to walk into charm and history—as well as quality. We are of relatively humble means here, but what we do, we try to do right.

*The Grounds: This home is a gardener’s paradise. Between the back beds and the front curbside gardens, your host, Jean grows much of her own organic produce year round. She preserves for the family’s winter use and also uses the produce in the cooking classes she teaches in Portland.

On the side the LL Bean picnic table seats 6 under the umbrella, and a fountain by the hammock completes the private, spacious patio that is secreted away behind the garden gate.

*The Neighborhood: We are 10 minutes from the airport and 20 to downtown. Also 3 of Portland’s trendy neighborhoods—The Beaumont, Alberta Arts, and Mississippi Avenue—are 15 minutes away. We’re also on the east of the city, where it’s easy to hop on the freeway to the Columbia River Gorge, world class environs listed on the National Scenic Registry.

We are in walking distance to Noodle Flat, where many of Portland’s Asian restaurants line Sandy Boulevard—and Otto’s Wood-Fired Pizza packs ‘em in nightly. A major grocery is 3 blocks away, as is the historic Fairley’s Pharmacy where you can sit at the lunch counter from the 1920s and order malteds made on the old fashion green machines. Annie’s Doughnuts—dubbed by the downtown travel bureau as the best doughnuts in town—is just around the corner, and their fresh French crullers with maple icing are well worth the stroll.

Espresso and croissants worthy of Portland’s food culture are 5 minutes by car over at Case Study Coffee or Jim and Patty’s on Fremont, as are 2 local brew pubs (we like Alameda Brew Pub) and 2 excellent wine bars (Magnolia with its live music and Black Bird).

Our neighborhood is safe to jog in and walking at night is no problem. Families with young children grace our block, and parents are often out with their charges for happy hour in the evening—spontaneous street gatherings at which guests are always welcome.

Happy trails…We hope to see you soon.

MORE REVIEWS:

This home was just as described. I’m a chef and I was very pleased with the little galley which was perfect for what food prep we did. The studio is gorgeous with many details that make it really feel like home away from home. Jean was lovely and even put some nice music for me and gave me tips to get out and about. I would definitely recommend. Maite, April 2015

Jean is a very welcoming host! We came up for a girls weekend and found the space to be very cozy and homey with plenty of character. The repurposed furniture made uniquely for the space made us feel like we were truly getting the southwestern inspired Oregon experience. For a last minute booking we definitely got lucky by getting to stay in this gem. We love Auntie’s! Chelsea, March 2015

Outstanding host, and a pleasure to stay here while house-hunting. Jean is very cool and goes out of her way to make us feel comfortable. It is totally possible to make little meals with the microwave setup. I highly recommend Auntie’s Hideaway. Thank you, Jean! Alexa and Tom, February 2015

Couldn’t have had a better stay with Jean. Everything was very clean, and the suite was the perfect size for me and my wife. The ambiance was cozy, bed was comfortable, and the kitchen and bathroom had everything we needed to make our stay not only feel comfortable, but even a bit pampered. Jean was always available and willing if we needed her and was a pleasure to get to know. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend for anyone looking for a pleasurable stay in Portland. Ross and Bethany, January 2015
