About Diane Rowley

Charley & Diane have been married 42 years and moved from Montana to Portland 29 years ago where they have raised their 3 children. They enjoy welcoming guests from all over the world in the private apartment behind their home, overlooking the garden.

Diane Rowley purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Diane Rowley chose Portland

The Garden Apartment is a comfortable, clean, light-filled, refuge with a peaceful garden view..... a great place to hang out or come back to after a day of exploring the Portland area, or visiting family. It has everything you need....a home away from home.

What makes this apartment unique

This location is in an historic established neighborhood, has excellent access to the many amenities of Portland and its surroundings. It is a beautiful short walk to the historic Mt. Tabor Park and easy access to anywhere in the city or hikes in the Colombia Gorge. Only two blocks to the neighborhood coffee shop and restaurant and a few more to the neighborhood theater where you can see a movie for $3 and have a pizza & beer. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Diane had the place very well stocked with just about anything you needed. Her granola was delicious too. The apartment is in a great location for sightseeing and great restaurants. Unfortunately we couldn't see everything on our itinerary because of the fires, so we will have to come back.

Lovely, well equipped apartment with gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find that this spacious apartment was even nicer than the photos show. The rooms are large and airy. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a washer and dryer tucked into a closet. The bed was comfortable with an ample closet. The bath is good-sized and fully accessible. The garden is lovely, and the location convenient to buses and MAX. The hosts were friendly and helpful, even offering to help us with accommodations when it was time for us to leave and it seemed we might not be able to make it to our next destination because of wildfires. We'd be delighted to stay here again should we come back to Portland.

Wonderful, clean accommodations in a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Diane and Charlie were extremely helpful and the apartment was clean and well-equipped for cooking. The location couldn't have been better. Public transportation was easily accessible and many of the restaurants we wanted to try were close by.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable for our family of 4, everything was lovely and so well equipped. The setting is serene and the location is good. So quiet at night you'd never know you were in a city. We would stay here again for sure.

Amazing Hosts and a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning on staying in Portland you MUST stay at the Peaceful Garden Apt! Diane and Charly are the perfect hosts and the Apt is amazingly equipped and in a prime location. From the homemade granola to the heated bathroom floors to the peaceful garden and patio, no detail is spared when it comes to comfort and privacy. A huge thank you to Diane for finding and mailing my watch I accidentally left. Thank you so much. This truly was my best visit to Portland! I'd give 10 stars if I could! -Paz, Mike and Jessika
