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, and 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 washing materials are organic and allergy sensitive products.

Amenities include: off-street parking, high-speed WiFi, HDTV, Blueray/DVD player with NetFlix availability, linens and toiletries, 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.)

(We keep the calendar current. If the calendar shows availability, please submit your booking request.)

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

Lovely little hillside apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in this little apt and found it to be just perfect for us. It is small but very well appointed so that we were completely comfortable. We were here in cold weather so we couldn't really enjoy the outdoor space but there is a lovely garden a little covered patio area overlooking it that would be great in warmer weather. Carol and Arnie were great! They had suggestions for restaurants and activities all around Portland. They are friendly and responsive to any questions we had. I would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful property inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely apartment. It has a separate living area and also includes a little kitchen, so well stocked. The bathroom has a wonderful shower and the bed is really comfortable. The owners were upstairs but we really didn't hear them at all. They were available if we needed anything but everything was just perfect. This is in such a lovely area of town and a perfect place to stay. We loved that we were very close to our daughter's home but this is also very close to wonderful downtown Portland. We look forward to staying with Carol and Arnie again during our next visit to Portland.

Cozy nook in a great part of Porlant

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for it's proximity to an appointment in Portland and I'm so glad I did. This was a cozy little place in a beautiful setting that was a great getaway for the two of us. The owners were wonderfully communicative and helpful and even made a great dinner recommendation. I will definitely consider book this rental again the next time the two of us are in town.

Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Carol and Arnie are excellent hosts. They are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area always happy to share their knowledge. They are also very interesting people to talk to. They go out of their way to make you feel at home. The apartment is clean and comfortable set in a beautiful garden. You are about 10-15 minutes from downtown Portland by car and there is access to public transportation. You will be located in a quiet residential neighborhood great for taking morning walks and not far from local shopping, restaurants and cafes.

Our expections from the descriptions were by far exceeded by the well maintained, tastefully decorated and spacious place in convenient location with its nice neighborhood.

Lovely positioned cottage with wonderful views over Portland hills within a beautiful garden setting

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect, host very ameniable and cottage kitted out with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Great eateries within half a mile, though steep climb home if you want to walk, we took the car. We had a great time and would recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Just a clarification. It is an self-contained Apartment in a residence, not a separate 'cottage'.
