Guest Comments:

'My husband and I were in Portland to surprise our daughter when her boyfriend asked for her hand in marriage! We were lucky to have found this charming little apartment for the week. It was just as the photos indicated - very nicely appointed and sparkling clean. It was in a prime location with great shopping and restaurants all within walking distance. The separate entrance was nice so that we didn't feel like we were intruding on our host family. Since we have a 'new family' in Portland, we will stay in this apartment in a heartbeat!'

'I had such a wonderful time staying in this apartment for the week. It was sparkling clean and had everything anyone could need while away from home. The neighborhood is perfect for walking. There are restaurants, shops, a library, coffee shops, bakeries, and a wonderful grocery store all within walking distance. I really hated to leave! The owner, Traci, is warm and more than accommodating!'

'At the last minute I decided to forgo staying at a hotel and my daughter found this lovely back of house apartment in the beautiful Sellwood neighborhood. It was perfect. Brand new accommodations in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood where you could walk down the block and enjoy friendly crowd-filled coffee houses, antique stores, restaurants or discover that special organic-find at the local market. The apartment itself was doll-like, very clean (which I am fastidious about!) and could easily have been a model for a pottery barn ad. Perfect in every way. It was filled with everything you would need from coffee pots to silver ware should you chose to eat in. Lots of windows-making my morning coffee (provided by Traci of course) I could open the kitchen window and treat myself to fresh air to start my day. One unique and surprise feature was the heater nestled in the bathroom-a nicety you don't see very often and the bedroom was perfect-large, spacious closets and very comfy. The living room had a fireplace that was both warm and completed the feel of the apartment even if you did have to turn it on with a clicker. I highly recommend staying at this perfect rental and do so for a longer stay-I had only two nights and could have easily stayed for a week! Traci thought of everything and even provided us with a list of places to go and eat in her cardboard binder-she was a splendid host. I give it five stars!'

'My wife and I much enjoyed our stay in this apartment, indeed it is probably the best appointed and most elegantly designed apartment in which we have spent time (a week plus) in many years of travel. It has the advantage of being one of the few 'guesthouses' in Sellwood, so very well located for visitors such as ourselves coming to spend time with family living in that delightful area of Portland. And where else can you see Mt Hood through the kitchen sink window?!'

'The apartment is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There was a perfectly framed peek-a-boo view of Mt Hood from the kitchen window. It seems newly completed and is located over the garage. The neighborhood has older homes and was great for walking and to many restaurants, Grand Central has coffee and great pastries nearby, Reverend's is delicious southern style BBQ about 2 blocks away, Gino's has a friendly neighborhood bar vibe with gourmet food. It was conveniently located a short (approx. 10 minute) drive to downtown Portland. The hosts were friendly and thoughtful.'

'Wonderful apartment! A brand new house - very very cosy, we did feel like home living there. It has anything you might need for a short or longer staying. Ken and Traci are perfect hosts and they did help us a lot to discover the neighborhood and Portland. We also never had a problem to park our car in front of the house - there was always a free space. Strongly recommended!'

Why Traci Holder chose Portland

I know, we're biased. But after living here for over 15 years, we're staunch believers that Sellwood/Westmoreland is one of the best neighborhoods in America. We were lucky enough to be able to build our dream home in our dream location and included an apartment to be able share our love for Sellwood with others.

What makes this apartment unique

Located just three miles south of downtown Portland and over the Sellwood Bridge, the Sellwood/Westmoreland neighborhood is brimming with unique shops, delicious dining and fabulous adventures.

Approximately two miles in length and a mile wide, the teardrop-shaped area is rich in natural and recreational amenities. We have four public parks (Westmoreland, Sellwood, Sellwood Riverfront & Johnson Creek), hiking paths (Oaks Bottom Refuge), a public golf course, a bicycle/pedestrian-only thoroughfare (the Springwater Corridor) and the center of Portland's antique shopping.

With a wide variety of shopping and dining choices, our two historic neighborhoods dating from 1876, make it easy to enjoy everything that Sellwood/Westmoreland has to offer.

This is the cutest, cleanest most complete little apartment ever. I wished I could have stayed longer, what a nice respite to come home too. Well located easy waking distance to shops and restaurants, quick to downtown Portland, easy access to freeways. Book early, this place goes fast.

Perfect!

Very new, beautifully decorated "In-Law" apartment in a great neighborhood. Fully outfitted kitchen, over-and-under washer/dryer. Everything about this apartment is tastefully done and luxurious. The owner was very responsive to our inquiries about local restaurants and grocery stores. Hands down, the nicest VRBO property we have stayed at. Six stars!

A perfect stay in Sellwood.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter, and I just spent 4 nights at this wonderful property. Traci, the owner was prompt and helpful with all correspondence. We got to meet her one day as we were returning home so we had a chance to thank her personally. The unit is above the garage and everything is new, clean, functional, and comfortable. Being up high gave us wonderful, tree filled views out all windows. The neighborhood is extremely quiet except for the happy sounds of children playing nearby. The air conditioners worked perfectly, the bathroom and big shower were wonderful, and everything you could possibly need is provided. We will definitely try to book this place again as we frequently visit Portland to see family. Also, the Sellwood neighborhood is great. We walked to dinner every night, I walked to the beautiful park 2 blocks away, and my daughter walked to a yoga studio nearby. A great stay and we will be back!

Clean, well-appointed, and conveniently located. Traci and Ken were wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very conveniently located within walking distance of shops, restaurants, New Seasons Market, the Springwater Corridor bike path, and the pool/park in Sellwood. We appreciated the fact that the kitchen was well-appointed for cooking and it was very helpful to have a washer and dryer during our vacation. The apartment was neat, clean, and tidy with plenty of natural sunlight. Traci and Ken were welcoming and helpful. We would love to return in the future!
