WE INVITE YOU TO COME AND VISIT:
Our desire is to create a home away from home with everything you would need for an extended business trip or a holiday with the kids. You will find all kinds of resources and guidebooks to Portland and the surrounding areas. Whether you spend your time exploring our amazing city or want a quiet retreat to rest and relax, our space is designed to accommodate both. We may or may not see you but, either way, we hope you will have a wonderful time staying in our home.
You will have access to the entire guest suite, patio, and garden.
INTERACTION WITH GUESTS:
We are around so if anything breaks it can be easily fixed, but we not in the way so you can be as independent as you would like.
We live in a quiet, hilly neighborhood with hiking trails and parks just a short walk from the house. Walk to the top of our street and you overlook the beautiful views of several mountains on clear days and the valley lights at night.
The unit has convenient, free on-street parking.
The closet Tri-Met bus stop is 1.4 miles down the hill at 135th and Scholls Ferry (Stop ID 8622).
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
Oregon is a no sales tax state. So enjoy shopping without any taxes.
Also, we do not pump our own gas here. Oregon law requires that gas station attendants pump your fuel for you (a big plus when its rainy).
This apartment is very comfortable. Owners are wonderful. This was a great place to rent and very close to where our family lives. We would definitely rent this place again. It had everything we needed.
We recently spent a few days in Portland to meet our new grand daughter and celebrate Thanksgiving with our son and daughter-in-law and their new baby. Brian and Becky's home was very convenient and it was the perfect setup for my wife and myself and our daughter, son-in-law and grand daughter who came in from Phoenix. There was a bottle of Oregon wine and freshly ground coffee waiting when we arrived. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the best tools, the bath towels were thick and the fireplace was great on chilly evenings. Plus our grand daughter loved the chickens like the other folks have commented. It was perfect.
The owners did a fantastic job of decorating the apartment/mother in law suite. I even got some ideas for my own place back home. It was stocked with SUPER basic items such as the basic cleaning products, salt and pepper. It would have been nice to have some further basic items such as paper towels and a blow dryer. However, when asked, the owners were very accommodating and brought down a dryer and some tasty homemade treats.
I will warn future renters however, that the owners have young children who spent a good portion of the time we were there running around upstairs. Thankfully it stopped at bed time but resumed early in the morning and proceeded throughout much of the afternoon. While this is completely understandable, having children myself, it was inconsiderate of how loud it was in the apartment. Additionally, there should also be a note about having the second bedroom up a steep flight of stairs and near the front door. This would be incredibly unsafe for young children especially for late night bathroom runs, no matter any age.
Other than those two items, we were very pleased with the facility and would recommend it with the understanding of the noise and the location of the second bedroom.
What a gem of an apartment to find on VRBO. We had never used VRBO before but after a failed family getaway in a hotel with very little space, we were determined to have a better experience. We found this property and decided to take the plunge. What a delight. It is decorated beautifuly and located very close to the city. It was just the right space for ourselves and 2 young children. I was worried that since it was attached to a main house that privacy would be a problem but it really is not. The owners do a great of making it feel very secluded and private. And wouldn't you know it, my infant son gets a horrible ear infection on the day of our arrival. He was in such pain that having a nice place to call "home" was necessary for him. Highly suggest this wonderful place.
We had a great stay, (three nights) and everything was perfect for us. The unit was designed and finished very nice. Everything seemed new, including the great kitchen. Thanks again Brad and Becky, we plan on staying again next year.
We (two adults + one infant) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place. It was so wonderful we stayed one extra day. Owners were friendly and great! They let us have fresh eggs and home grown vegetables :)
No complaints whatsoever! Go for it!
