About the property

1 bed/ 1 bath that sleeps up to 5

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.

David W purchased this house in 2012

Why David W chose Sellwood - Moreland

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.

What makes this house unique

Also, let me suggest a great new service (1 way rides & free parking) called Car2go 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

++ Original review posted & available on airbnb ++



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.

A Delightful Property

  • 5 of 5

This charming house is located in a quiet neighborhood, with easy access to downtown Portland, shopping malls, and trails. It is most comfortably furnished and well-equipped. Instructions are plentiful and well-marked. The bed and linens are top-notch. This is my second stay here, and my favorite rental while in the Portland area. I highly recommend it to couples, pet owners, or anyone wanting a true feel of a wonderful Portland neighborhood.Thank you David.

A good choice for one couple.

  • 3 of 5

We left as soon as our daughter arrived on the second day because if we stayed our teenager would have to walk through our bedroom to use the bathroom. One bathroom is okay, but not if it's only access is through someone else's bedroom. I missed that detail. My husband and I with our two standard poodle s were comfortable on our own and I was happy to be allowed to have them with us.

Owner's Response: It's unfortunate you missed the description of the property regarding access to the bathroom is through the BR. This seems to be the only issue you had, so I'm disappointed you gave us a three star review based on nothing we did.

Delightful Victorian cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights, and it was one of the most relaxing trips we've ever taken. The house is very clean and well laid out. The kitchen was large and had all that we needed to cook. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were amazing! We both slept well the whole time we were there. The neighborhood is very quiet and the shops nearby are great! We will definitely stay here again!
