Heating/Cooling
This is house is nearly 100 years old. As such, the insulation is not as efficient as modern homes. For cooling we have a brand new, dual compressor 18,000 btu air conditioning system to keep the room cool and comfortable. (Available May-September). For the Winter we use a high powered 5000w built-in heating system to keep the space nice and warm.

Guests can enter through the side door via the August Smartlock App. Guests will only have access to the main entryway and the room its self.

We will not personally interact with guests unless you need assistance. We are available by text and phone 24 hours a day. Emergencies are responded to on the spot. In general guests are allowed to come and go as they please at any hour of the day without the need for host interaction.

Carter Park is one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Vancouver. There's lots of peaceful, green walking space around our house as well as classic homes from the early 19th century and mid 20th century. There is a great dive bar called The Rusty Chain one block away. All of the locals hang out there with plenty of good menu options and local tap choices at reasonable prices. Arnada downtown is just a 10 minute walk and has tons of amenities like Bleu Door Bakery, Pho Haven, Old Glory Antiques, Doomsday Brewing, Funky Fresh Juice, Dave's Magic Shop, and more. We also have a brand new modern 6 story library (Completed in 2015) and every Saturday-Sunday from March 17th through October 29th there is a huge farmers market adjacent to Esther Short Park, (better than Saturday market in Portland in our humble opinion) Check out our guide for more cool stuff!

About a 10 minute walk or less to most amenities and local nightlife. Here are a list of transit times:

Portland Airport - 20 Minutes

Access to the room is a moderately steep flight of carpeted steps. It is NOT recommended for people with handicaps or those requiring a wheelchair. Kids under the age of 10 are not permitted due to insurance restrictions. Shoes must not be worn in the room. We do not allow smoking or vaping in or around our home. We do not allow marijuana use of any kind in or around our home. On our guide we provide a list of lounges and public spaces to consume marijuana safely and privately. Downloading pirated media is strictly forbidden. We actively block access to media pirating sites like The Pirate Bay to avoid legal issues with our ISP. No pets are allowed in the room, this is for the safety of other guests who may have allergies. No cooking outside of microwave heating is allowed, this is also due to insurance restrictions. There is a 3 year old in our home. The sound barrier is fair, but there are times when noise from downstairs can be heard depending on how sensitive you are to noise. We will always do our best to restrict any noise from bothering you during your stay. Quiet-time is from 10:00PM to 6:30AM. The ROKU has a built-in headphone jack in the remote that allows you to watch TV at full volume as long as you'd like. Please keep in mind that this is the top floor of the house, and thus is the hottest. Air conditioning is powerful (18,000 BTU), but when the temperature outside goes above 95 the temperature inside will not go below 70. In the winter the space does get cold. The space is heated using a built in wall heater, equal 5000W full power. There is also a portable Dyson space heater for extra heat if you need it. You will likely only need half of that power to heat the space to 72 degrees in the dead of winter.
