Why Ray chose Sellwood - Moreland

I have lived in Sellwood for over 10 years and want to share (show off) this great neighborhood with other folks. At one time Sellwood was its own town, and in most ways, it still feels like it. It has a great friendly vibe of the 'old days' people are always quick with a hello or a smile. It's one of those neighborhoods you don't even need a car in - great shops, grocers, restaurants, wonderful parks, near the river, bike-friendly, pet friendly and wonderfully kept homes. Cheers!

Beautiful House, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! The owner is super accommodating, and the house is completely stocked with coffee maker, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and more! The house is walking distance to a small grocery store, restaurants and bars, and some shops like the Columbia outlet! The neighborhood felt super safe. It was nice that the house has a driveway since street parking runs out pretty quickly! Not all of these old homes have driveways. The backyard was really nice too, if the weather is nice there is a cool hammock and nice gondola to sit under. We wished we could have stayed longer, we will definitely return!

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Ray's house! The host was great and the house was perfect for my family - husband and 2 kids. We rent houses for vacations a lot and this is definitely one of my favorites. I think it is the cleanest house I have ever stayed in. The location was great - cute neighborhood and plenty of things in walking distance including restaurants and a grocery store. We would love to stay here again in the future and definitely recommend it to others!

Great House Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The house is very clean and comfortable. We were happy that there was a high chair and pack n' play for our child.

The location is amazing. The Piknik food cart pod is steps away while New Seasons grocery store is only a few more steps away. 13th Avenue (the main drag in Sellwood) is also super close. While the house is near a main street, we didn't find it to be noisy at all.

Ray, the owner, was friendly and accommodating.

The back yard is large with a hammock and gazebo when there's warmer temperatures.

We'd definitely stay here again!

Well maintained cosy and convenient cottage

  • 5 of 5

This property was clean, well equipped and well maintained. We found the landlord very responsive to minor concerns and requests. Very conveniently located in a walkable neighborhood near great food store, bakery and restaurants, as well as parks and wetland preserve. We will be returning later this year.

Great house and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent Thanksgiving week at this very nice home in Sellwood. We absolutely loved the location which allowed us to walk to the grocery store, restaurants, shops and for walks/runs along the river. The accommodations were perfect and the owner, Ray, was very responsive and attentive to any questions or needs we had. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend!

Great Portland Spot!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home for our small family and in a perfect location: walkable, restaurants/food trucks/grocery store, parks all within a block or two. This has always been one of our favorite PDX hoods and easily accessible to bike trails and downtown.

Ray was very responsive, welcoming/accommodating, and flexible during our stay. The house had everything we needed and more. I would highly recommend this HomeAway rental and I will intend on staying here again for future Portland visits.
