Gesamtübersicht

Our home, built in 1900, is a nice example of Portland architecture of that time. It has high ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. At 1,800 s.f. (plus a basement), the home is comfortable for up to 6 people. We’ve been remodeling and updating the home since we purchased it in 1990. We also co-own a home in Manzanita on the Oregon coast (sleeps 9) that is also available for exchange alone or in combination with our Portland house.

Der Raum

Upstairs are two bedrooms, a den and a small full bath. The two bedrooms have queen sized beds. The den has comfy sectional couch that folds out to a queen bed. The upstairs bath includes a large claw foot bathtub, original to the home. Downstairs is the kitchen, dining room, living room and a full bathroom. The leather couch and chairs in the living room comfortably seat six. The downstairs bath has a spacious tiled shower. The basement holds the laundry facilities and storage. We enjoy music of all kinds, so you’ll find a good stereo system (we even have speakers in the bathroom!) We also have three flat screen TVs for watching movies or our limited TV channel selection.

Gastzugang

There are three stairs to enter the house. You must be able to navigate a flight of wooden stairs to reach the bedrooms on the upper floor.

Anmerkungen

While we don't have any pets, our daughter's dog regularly visits. Our next door neighbor has a cat that often visits our back deck, so the outdoor chairs may have cat hair.

Nachbarschaft

Oregon, located in the Northwest USA, is known for its natural beauty. The western part of the state, where we live, has evergreen forests as well as farmland known for growing strawberries, hazelnuts and producing world-class wines. The central and eastern areas of the state are high desert landscape with an unmatched rugged beauty. The state borders the Pacific Ocean, just 1-1/2 hour drive from our home. Seattle, Washington is a 3 hour drive north. Portland, the largest city in Oregon, is located in the northwestern part of the state near the border with Washington State. It is a city of many bridges with the Columbia River to the north and the Willamette River running through the heart of the city. It is a vibrant, modern city with great restaurants and cultural activities while being just minutes from nature. The temperate climate makes it a wonderful place to visit in any season – although it does rain a bit in the winter! But the winter rains make for beautiful green summers. Our home is located in the NW district of Portland, an ideal location to explore the city and surrounding areas. As one of the oldest neighborhoods in Portland, you’ll find many beautiful homes built between the late 1880’s and early 1900’s. We are in the midst of one of the city’s best shopping districts (NW 23rd Ave) with dozens of restaurants, grocery stores, places of worship and entertainment within a few blocks. Portland is famous for our micro breweries - there are several family friendly pubs within blocks. We are a short walk or street car ride to the exclusive Pearl District and downtown Portland. Also very nearby are Forest Park (the largest forested park inside a city in the USA), the Portland Rose Garden, Japanese Gardens, the Oregon Zoo, and, in the summer, an amazing farmer’s market. Portland is a great launching spot for day trips throughout the region. Here’s just a few things you can see within 1-2 hours drive from Portland: The Columbia River Gorge – exceptional hiking and mountain bike trails with majestic views of the river and gorge. Also, some of the world’s best windsurfing! Wine country – dozens of local wineries featuring Oregon’s award winning pinot noir Mt. Hood – offers year round skiing as well as spectacular areas for hiking/biking and camping. In the early summer the mountain flowers are amazing. The Oregon Coast – some of the most beautiful rugged beaches you’ll find anywhere. Oregon offers complete public access to all our beaches, so you can walk for miles. Our home in Manzanita (sleeps 9) is also available for exchange.

Rumkommen

Public transportation is easy to access from our home (3 bus lines and street car line within 3 blocks and a short distance to the MAX light rail station). Our 2019 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid (seats 5) may be available in the exchange.

Nancy

We are Brock (62) a retired architect, Nancy (61) a retired hospital administrator, two daughters Lauren (27) and Sarah (26). Brock runs, bikes (both road and mountain) and does photography - you'll see examples of both his work and other artists throughout our house. Nancy enjoys cooking, reading, hiking and planning home exchanges! Lauren works in public health and lives with her husband, Robert, in Berkeley. Sarah and her partner, Zac, are parents to Lydia (born May 2020). They both work in healthcare in Portland. We are sometimes joined by one or both families on exchange trips. We have been exploring the world with home exchanges since 2008. As of June 2021 we are both retired. We love to explore the beauty of nature, so homes near national parks are a big plus. Europe has also been a favorite destination with exchanges in France, Italy and Spain over the last decade. We're "opportunistic" exchangers, often building our adventures around offers made by other members. We have two homes to offer. Our primary residence is in Portland, Oregon and we co-own a large house on the Oregon coast in the town of Manzanita. I look forward to meeting others who embrace the true spirit of home exchanging. Since we don't have any feedback yet on PLU, upon request I'm happy to direct you to our profile on the other exchange site where you'll find many positive reviews. We are fully COVID vaccinated as are all family members or friends that might travel with us.
