The Concordia Gem is a modern take on the classic mother-in-law unit, which will provide you with a luxe, personal & economical alternative to staying in a hotel/motel in the city. It is nestled on a quiet tree lined residential street. We offer a newly built beautiful 450 sq foot very spacious tall ceiling stand-alone unit. You have your own entrance into our private garden yard.
Located in the heart of the Historic Alberta Arts district the Gem is sure to deliver a unique experience in custom designed, space efficient housing & convenient access to some of Portland's hottest spots, just steps away from diverse restaurants, natural food grocery stores, yoga, massage studios etc… You can walk or bike with one of our free bikes though one of our numerous beautiful parks or community gardens. There are also bus lines within a few blocks walk that take you all over the city or rent a zip car or car to go. We love our neighborhood for offering the diversity of all these things, but with the peace and quiet of a neighborhood
The open, vaulted, light-filled space will make the tiny home seem much bigger than it appears. It has everything you need whether you are visiting PDX for a few days or for an extended stay.
Wherever possible, we have reclaimed, repurposed, upcycled, & recycled objects & materials & incorporated them into the design & function of the building & surrounding space.
We wanted the stand alone building to be tranquil, meditative, efficient, green-friendly environment combining both comfort & practicality in its footprint with vaulted ceilings and private bath combine to make the space feel & function spacious.
The gem shares a garden (with us and other renters) with lots of bamboo rustling in the breeze, a fully landscaped yard space. Perfect for reflecting, bbq'ing, reading, relaxing, happy-houring or whatever your heart desires.

Considering your hosts/neighbors are non-smokers we would really appreciate it if any smoking could be done well away from the windows so it doesn't waft inside our home. No smoking indoors. 10 pm is quiet time around here. Thank you for being mindful about noise, and respecting the family neighborhood atmosphere :)
We have a self check in system so please feel free to arrive anytime after 4:00 and check yourselves in.

We do compost and recycle! Please help us to limit the amount of waste in the landfill! You will find both a basket for recycling and a compost bucket under the kitchen sink. Please only leave clean recyclables and no meat or cooked foods in the compost please, just fresh veggies and fruit scraps.

And please make sure the gate is always closed and secure when you leave.

Thank you :)
