Portland house description

Come experience a lush landscape retreat at SellwoodManor; an adorable, ultra-clean victorian house located in the heart of the city featuring many original touches. With downtown & OHSU just 10 minutes away, you’ll find the location is ideal for exploring the best of Portland. This LiveLikeItsYours property is located in Sellwood which is one of Portland’s oldest and finest neighborhoods where you’ll find an abundance of shops, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, and trails to explore.

We’ve accentuated the best of this lady by adding touches of contemporary furnishings, antiques, repurposed pieces, many pieces of original artwork, high ceiling and lots of natural light.

Private and modern, this spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bath is airy and perfectly situated in a lush garden setting. The open, 900 square feet of living space offers plenty of storage for your personal belongings and includes a fully equipped kitchen with modern conveniences (dishwasher, garbage disposal, and vented gas range) . You’ll also have full use of the laundry center with washer, dryer, iron & board. As a bonus, we’ve arranged the house to sleep parties up to 6. In addition to a bedroom featuring a luxurious queen bed you’ll find two other sofa-beds (1 living room + 1 bonus room) to accommodate additional guests. The “sun room” is a wonderful place to relax and sleep offering a private space with full size sleeper sofa. We’ve stocked the property with the cook and entertainer in mind and the pantry includes, condiments, tea, oils and all the staples for guest use. Whether you’re going for a full Thanksgiving dinner, a cocktail part, or simple tapas; we have everything you need to entertain up to 10 and seating for 8 at the expandable dining table.

The bathroom is fresh, clean & modern with many original touches including a clawfoot and beautiful fixtures. We provide plenty luxury towels, soap & shampoo/conditioner.

Just an 8 minute drive to the downtown city center, SellwoodManor is located in the idilic Sellwood - Westmoreland neighborhood, on the inner SE side of Portland. This quiet idilic residential area offers a distinct proliferation of food, gorgeous flower gardens and canopied trees lined streets. Reed College is just a stones throw away as are some of the best walking and biking trails in Portland. If biking is your thing, you’ll find access to the Springwater trail (which takes you directly downtown within 10 minutes) is located literally a block from the house.

We offer free wi-fi, a full cable channel line up on a flat screen tv, ipod docking station, and linens fit for royalty. For those of you with little children, we offer a pack n play and highchair for your use.

During fair weather, (May 1st to mid/late October) guests are invited to relax in the backyard garden and barbecue, sip on a beverage or simply enjoy the lush wooded lot with shaded protection from the warmth of summer. A bistro table and full gas bbq grill are available for guest use.

You can rent bicycles at a great local shop just a few blocks away for sightseeing, a ride to parks, the waterfront, or to go shopping at a variety of interesting neighborhood shops.

If you'd like to head downtown, but don't want to drive, bus stops are located in every direction and are just a few blocks from the house and cottage.

We'll do our best to make your stay and your Portland activities as uncomplicated and pleasant as possible.

There is ample street parking. Want a trip through wine country (to the beach, to the mountains) but you are without a car? (website hidden) & Zipcar rentals are accessible within a few blocks and we offer LiveLikeItsYours properties in the best Oregon & Washington locations (Oregon Coast, Willamette Valley, Various options in Portland & Seattle).

Getting around: A bus stop is one block away. Downtown Portland is a ten minute drive, and we are a few minute drive to the OHSU tram. Reed College is only a 5 minute trip. Bike or run the gorgeous waterfront Springwater Corridor to downtown which takes just minutes.

Neighborhood Amenities, all within walking distance:
Seasonal rides at Oaks Park, the country’s oldest continuously active amusement park. Shopping and antiquing on 13th Street, also known as Antique Row.

                    ++ Original review posted & available on airbnb.com ++ This house is charming, clean, and well set up for a vacation to Portland. The pictures don't show all the attention to detail that David has put into his rental. Our kids got sick during our vacation and the house was cozy and inviting while they recuperated. Would definitely stay again.

                    ++ Original review posted & available on airbnb.com ++ We LOVED our experience staying at David Wesley's Sellwood home. It was perfect for our needs - and even more than perfect in many regards. The quiet street, the lovely neighborhood, the clawfoot tub, the fun and well-equipped kitchen, the stained glass windows, the artwork, the comfortable bed, the great dining room, the pattern the dining room lamp makes on the ceiling when lit, the thoughtful amenities (like luxurious towels and bathrobes), the exquisite taste in the simple decor. And we loved the "bird" notes thoughtfully placed in discreet locations informing us about things that we otherwise might have been lost figuring out! Altogether an awesome experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this host and this house to anyone. And great communication, too. Quick responses when we decided to stay another two nights! I'd love to stay at this house again! Thank you David. And lucky you, dear reader, if you get to stay here sometime!

                    ++ Original review posted & available on airbnb.com ++ Rented the Sellwood Manor for some family I had coming to town and kept my fingers crossed that it would help their first impressions of Portland. It worked out flawlessly. It was by far cheaper than a hotel with similar amenities and instead of reducing their downtime with some generic environment(aren't most hotel rooms forgettably interchangeable?) they instead got a sweet place to rest that reinforced their vacation. A full beautiful kitchen, washer/dryer on site, internet, a quiet tree lined street with a front porch. At the risk of tying up the schedule and making it so i can never reserve it again, I advise you to make the reservation with David and enjoy our sublime Sellwood.

                    ++ Original review posted & available on airbnb.com ++ Our west coast trip to Oregon and California found us staying in 8 different homes throughout our 2 week trip from beautiful ocean front homes on the coast to cozy cabin's in Yosemite. David's home was one of our favorites because of his thoughtfulness of his guests. We didn't need for anything. Very comfortable and convenient to downtown and the fabulous antique and thrift shops in the Hawthorne area. We loved the beautifully designed spaces and unique details of the home. You can tell David enjoys creating warm and inviting spaces for others to enjoy. Thank you for a great stay!

                    ++ Original review posted & available on airbnb.com ++ WOW!! WONDERFUL place and stay! My 19-year-old daughter and I both enjoyed our time at Sellwood Manor TREMENDOUSLY. Located in a quiet, quaint neighborhood, Sellwood Manor was a joy and delight, and exceeded our expectations. David is an outstanding absent host who has literally thought of EVERYTHING, including helpful signs throughout, luxurious bath products, comfy bathrobes, and a kitchen that would even impress Julia Childs. Every pan and utensil you would ever need (new and quality, might I add) will make your stay that much more enjoyable. The lighting, rustic decor, and artwork gives Sellwood Manor a warm, homey feel. If you are looking for a wonderful place in a great location, this is it! I highly recommend Sellwood Manor. Hats off to David for creating and sharing such a charming and exceptional home!

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We have put an exceptional amount of attention to detail into each of our properties. Look for other LiveLikeItsYours properties in Seattle, the Oregon Coast, Manhattan Beach, Oregon wine country and Portland.

                  Why the Owner Chose Portland:
                  Amazing Portland Sellwood location with easy access to top destinations. Pearl District, NW 23rd, Hawthorne, Alberta, Mississippi, Fremont, Division, and Clinton are all easily accessible. Easy walking access to some of the best grocery, theater, restaurants, bars, shopping, public transportation and gym options Portland has to offer.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Also, let me suggest a great new service (1 way rides & free parking) called www.car2go.com which is an awesome alternative to renting a car (for city use). Signing up gives you access to all the cities they service in the US.
