Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Light, airy, and cozy apartment, with separate bedroom -with Queen Size Bed, can become your oasis away from home. Whether you need to relax from a day of sightseeing, decompress from a stressful work experience, enjoy a necessary respite from life's challenges, or just kick back after visiting family, this comfortable apartment will help you find the peace and solace you seek. Located in a very quite residential area in Portland's west hills, you will enjoy both expansive vistas and the sense of a forested preserve around you. While only 10 minutes from the center of a large bustling city, you may awaken to the sight of deer sauntering outside your bedroom window.

The fully equipped kitchen is complete with a double-filter drinking water faucet, a Keurig coffee maker, Krupps Drip coffee maker, and a French Press coffee maker. An outdoor grill is available. You may wish to enjoy sitting or dining on the fully covered and secluded patio.

The Apartment now has all LED lighting, new high-efficiency and low-flow toilet and shower, recycling and composting available, and ensures that your stay has a low environmental impact. Cleaning supplies that are used to maintain the Apartment, and supplied personal cleaning supplies, are organic and allergy sensitive products.

Amenities include: off-street parking, high-speed WiFi, HDTV, Blueray/DVD player with NetFlix availability, linens and toiletries, hair dryer, and iron/board.. The neighborhood shopping area includes a natural food store, dvd rental shop, salons, banks, and a public library. National chain food stores are just a few minutes away.

There are private and public recreational facilities only 5-10 minutes away; day memberships are available.

(Limited to 2 adult occupants. There is only one queen-sized bed.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

After traveling around the Pacific Northwest, camping and staying at hotels, we were delighted to find this very quiet place to rest. Who would have thought that a vacation would be so tiring? Anyway, we were ready to kick back and relax, catch up on a bit of family and work needs, and yet did not want to deal with the hustle of another hotel. So we landed here. And what a WONDERFUL choice. Carol and Arnie really made us feel welcome, and at the same time, we hardly every saw them.



The apartment has a separate bedroom, which was excellent because I wanted to stay up and watch TV while she wanted to relax and read. We could easily walk down to several nice places to eat, and we even took the public transit down to the art museum and a night out at the theatre.



We are definitely coming back here when we return to Portland

Wonderful apartment in private home, surrounded by a beautiful and peaceful garden.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and would select this property again when we return to Portland. Excellent neighborhood location with an amazing breakfast place and restaurants nearby. Quiet, serene and everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners have thought of all the nice details, down to the robes, and local guides.

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great find. The apartment was well maintained and had everything we needed. The gardens are beautiful and a relaxing place to hang out. WE used this as 'home base' and explored around Portland but could have stayed put more for down time.

beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our needs. We were visiting family in the area and everyone was impressed with our space. The area was quiet and the gardens were awesome, the view in the morning accompanied with coffee was incredible. The apartment had some beautiful touches, apparently someone is very artistic. Certainly wish we would have had more time to enjoy the area, but if and when we return we shall certainly try to stay in this lovely apartment. Thank you so much.

Clean, quaint, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment about 10 minutes south of downtown Portland. Would recommend renting car because the closest bus is a 15 minute walk.

Carol and Arnie were great hosts and have a beautifully maintained garden which was great to relax in after a long day.

No More Hotels!

  • 5 of 5

Words can't adequately describe just how much we enjoyed our stay here. The beautiful gardens (not just at "our" place, but the entire neighborhood) are just unbelievable. Our apartment was most comfortable, and cool. (On Sunday, the temps hit 101, but we were cool, and humidity free.)

Quiet hill side dwelling

  • 5 of 5

The owners -Arnie and Carol - were perfect hosts. They were available when needed but otherwise provided a private and peaceful retreat in the apartment that is a part of their Hillsdale residence. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful, and also close enough to the city and highways that one can easily reach popular destinations. The apartment is a perfect substitute for a hotel room - perfect for unwinding after a day of excursions. It included everything we needed for our stay. My spouse and I especially enjoyed having coffee on the patio with the hummingbirds and also eating pie with Arnie and Carol. Thanks for a great stay!
