Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Dennis and I have created an oasis in which you will feel peaceful and relaxed. We are both Massage Therapists and everything here is created to make you feel comfortable and welcome. We both like to travel and want to be on the road a lot in 2014. We enjoy Yoga, the Outdoors, Gardening, Animals, Meditating and love to spend time with our two Aussie Shephards & our Friends. If we are not traveling, we stay in our RV on the big driveway or in our Portland House. Our massage studio and office are in the remodeled garages and are accessed by separate entrances. We may use these spaces and the half-bath in the laundry room space as well. Of course we are very mindful and respectful of your privacy. We are always happy to assist you if you have questions. You may even want to schedule a massage with us!

Why the Owner Chose Hillsboro:
Our House is a great place to stay as you are close to Portland, an hour away from Mt. Hood and the amazing Columbia River Gorge and only an hour away from the beautiful Oregon Coast and the hidden Gems of the Oregon Wine Country.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quiet and friendly. Great Neighborhood. Close to Light Rail Public Transit, which connects you to the Heart of Portland and the Portland International Airport. A place to relax and get away or a base from which to explore NW Oregon.
