Hosted by DebiAsk a question
Your hosts, Debi and Rob embrace the sharing economy with the Owl Forest Studio and their ocean view beach home (the Gullhouse) being shared in the Short Term Rental Market. We love meeting travelers, hearing their stories and sharing our homes. Our podcast Hosting Your Home shares the inspiring stories of other hosts. Founders of the first nonprofit trade association for hosts, Host2Host.org we are also very active in the broader host community. Married for over 50 years, 3 children and 5 grandchildren give us a lot of opportunity to love life.
Why Debi chose Far Southwest
We fell in love with the park-like yard in 1976. The big Doug firs in the front offer a unique forested setting in a busy neighborhood. It's a great place to relax, and back in the day, it was a great place for our children to play. You might see the zip-line which is still used by our visiting grandchildren and the remnants of the tree fort Rob build for our kids!
What makes this Studio unique
Although the apartment is attached to our home, the area is completely surrounded by a 6ft fence (Rob's handiwork) that offers a quality of privacy that makes it feel like there are two separate homes here. We have two (almost) completely separate living spaces. We love being able to meet and greet our guests, but rarely see you after you arrive, unless you seek us out. We are available, but not intrusive. With the advent of Covid, we can offer you a completely contact-free arrival and departure. The location is great, just 2 blocks off the freeway and in a neighborhood area that is spread out, with no houses looming over us. The #78 bus stops here, which is handy and downtown Portland is only about a 15 minute drive.
