  • Peaceful Sellwood

    "So quiet, such a nice space to read and relax. Fall colors in the tress and lots of great food to walk to. Owners were close at hand but the space felt completely private, like your own private treehouse. Thanks again for the pleasant stay!!"

  • Wonderful place to Stay

    "My husband and I were able to get away for two nights and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. It was so serene and peaceful. Upon arrival we noticed all the personal touches from Karen. It was close to the village where there was a wonderful assortment of shops and restaurants. Such a nice getaway from our daily lives. We definitely will return!"

  • What a TREAT!

    "First, let me say, Rupert is a gem! We met only briefly, but he is truly a man who emanates good energy. The apartment is cozy and very thoughtfully designed. I spent 3 nights and could have stayed 3 weeks. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe and very conducive to morning runs, walking to groceries (Whole Foods is about 9 blocks) and a variety of eating/entertainment establishments (less than 5 blocks). Parking was easy, not to mention access to a garage beneath the apartment if desired. The apartment has a well furnished, nicely appointed kitchen, cute gas fireplace, nice spacious bathroom and a cozy bed in the loft. You can't go wrong booking a stay here."

  • Perfect.

    "It was all that I would have hoped for, as represented, and seeking for our vacation. Perfect location in the Pearl, very walkable to groceries, dining, drinking, brewpubs, mass transit, the river, everything. You don't need a car unless you don't want to walk. The property lacked nothing, kitchen had two coffee making options, all utensils, steamer, grater, toaster, barbeque grill, martini glasses, shaker, name it and they had it. Abundant and luxurious towels, wonderful bed linens, plentiful pillows... Quiet location. Very comfortable. Can't say enough, but think I have. Mair was a delight as well. A definite if you are seeking ideal accomodations in the Pearl."
