The Pumpkin House
During these unprecedented times, Vacation Rentals By Kimberly is determined to provide a safe and cleaned home to all of our guests. All of our homes are being professionally cleaned according to the CDC’s COVID-19 cleaning guidelines.We also provide a self check-in process.
PLEASE NOTE: While this is NOT a shared home (meaning no one else lives in your space or uses your space you have rented) there is a person living on the property in a SEPARATE mother in law suite. This other unit has no access to your home. It has its own front door and you have yours. This other unit has no common space with your vacation home. This full time tenant does not use your washer or dryer, your hot tub, your backyard, front porch, kitchen, garage, or anything else you use. Their unit is locked from you, and yours is locked from them. This full time resident doesn't have lock box codes or access to your space at all. But, The City of Portland requires ALL vacation rentals to have an onsite resident.
Nestled into the trees, and just 3 miles from down town Portland, our beautiful house awaits you. The HUGE covered front porch with gazebo eating area is very inviting. Sit and watch the rain fall around you while you remain dry. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and listen to the sound of the native birds flying overhead. We welcome kids and pets! We have a flat front yard that the ride-on toys can be played with on. The back yard is 1/3 acre of manicured gardens. Birdhouses in nearly every tree of our fenced yard. We also have a hot tub in the back, overlooking the lush landscape.
Inside our Portland home we have a living room with an over-sized couch and a small flat screen Smart TV. A dining table that seats 5, and a high chair for little ones (stored in the basement). A fully stocked kitchen complete with everything you will need for preparing meals. Outside sits a gas BBQ. The 1st bedroom has a king sized bed, a twin bed, and a toddler race car bed. It also has a walk in closet and a deck off the room overlooking the backyard. The 1st bedroom is LOADED with toys, appropriate for kids of all ages. The 2nd bedroom has a queen sized bed & a full sized baby crib. It also has a changing table for the little ones. This home has one full bathroom, with a tub/shower combo. In the basement, we have a washer and dryer, a sitting area, and a Foosball Table. The downstairs basement area is NOT a finished space. It is a 1940's unfinished basement. It is NOT light and bright and cheerful like the rest of the house. It is cold and dark (if you aren't used to living in a home with a basement). Our home has EVERYTHING you will need while vacationing. It is very charming, we have been told it looks like a Bed & Breakfast. The decor is very cottage-chic. We would love to have you stay!
Please note: We ask for quiet hours from 9pm to 9am. There is a pet fee of $125 per pet. If you bring furry friends, we ask that you do not allow them outside during quiet hours, as neighbors are very sensitive. Please do not leave your pets alone unattended during your stay. This home does not allow more than 5 people onsite at any given time, including visitors. No parties or gatherings please. There shall be no video, still photography or film production of any kind without the express written consent of the owner. We do not write leases longer than 28 nights in length. If your stay is longer than 2 weeks, we may ask for an additional theft/damage deposit.
Please take note that this home is NOT baby and/or child proofed. It is your responsibility to walk the home and/or property upon arrival, to make this space safe for your children. We assume no liability for harm/death to any baby or child staying or visiting this vacation rental. There are some stairs inside and outside.
