portland (oregon) house rental wanted -- starting late january 2011
my husband, our 8-year old daughter, & i (& our 2 well-behaved, small dogs) are relocating from hawaii to portland in january 2011. we are hoping to rent a furnished home in a good neighborhood with a good elementary school for starters, before we purchase a house. with several universities in the portland area, we are hoping someone who is going on sabbatical from portland may have their home for rent. we are both career biologists with the u.s. fish & wildlife service, & are mellow, non-smokers, who would treat the home as if it were our own. please let me know if you have a wonderful house in need of a responsible family to care for & appreciate it.
