About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Detached studio stand-alone home with a king bed and a kitchen built by us 2008.

Detached studio stand-alone home (17ft x 20ft), built by us 2008. It has a king bed with kid gear if needed. It also has a full bath and a full kitchen (convection microwave oven instead of a conventional oven). Location is fantastic!

My husband and I (along with the help of generous friends) built this unit in 2008 when I was pregnant with my first son. We added the kitchen mid-2014. The unit is extremely well insulated and has radiant floor heating under the tiled floor. There are a lot of great details...including the hardwood trimmed windows and the vertical grain Douglas fir double entry door.

Please message me to confirm availability before booking directly. I try hard to keep the calendar up to date.

King bed and optional pack-n-play and high chair. Also have a blowup bed. The unit has accommodated a family of 5 before.

Full bath contains a tiled shower with overhead rain and traditional handheld shower heads. Bathroom sink is an inset copper sink. No tub in the shower.

Kitchen contains keurig coffee maker with coffee. Kitchen also has a full fridge, induction stovetop for cooking, eat-in island and is stocked with supplies for cooking and some basics.

Room also has a large flat HDTV screen with cable,wireless internet and a Blu-Ray DVD player with Netflix access.

The unit is in our backyard where my husband's green thumb shows during the right time of year. Lots of windows with blinds for privacy.

Location is great...walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, bike shop where you can rent bikes, trails, etc... There is plenty of street parking.

Guests will have access to our backyard. There is a gate to our backyard with a walkway directly to the unit.

Our interaction with guests vary and it really depends on the guests. We are happy to share Portland tips and our favorite spots. We spend a bit of time on our back porch in the summer time. We have 2 little boys so we spend a bit of time playing outside with them and love to visit while we do.

Our neighborhood is a fantastic walking neighborhood. You can walk to restaurants, starbucks, grocery stores, etc... It is really unique to Portland and it gives you a great sense of what Portland has to offer. It is also very close to other Portland attractions by either bus or a car.

There is a bus stop 2 blocks away and light rail (MAX Orange Line) is walking distance (15min walk) away!! There is also parking available at the nearest MAX stop if you want to park and ride. MAX will take you all over town...downtown, to the zoo and more!

There is plenty of street parking.

Best way to arrive from the airport is either by rental car, taxi, or max then bus.

Guests will have access to our backyard. There is a gate to our backyard with a walkway directly to the unit.

About Jennifer Eggers

My husband and I have 2 young boys and love our neighborhood. We have been living in our home since 2007 and built this studio guest home in 2008 when I was pregnant with my first son. And yes, when I say we built it...I mean we physically built it ourselves with some very generous friends.

We love doing home projects and spending time with our boys camping, hiking, etc...

Please let us share our wonderful city and neighborhood with you. :)

Jennifer Eggers purchased this house in 2006

Perfect hidden getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for anyone looking to be in a beautiful neighborhood with great spots to walk to! It's also close to the city and just a jump away from the main highways!

The bed is super comfortable, the shower is great! This house has everything you could want and need at an amazing price! Jennifer is great and very accommodating! We have a 6 month old baby and she let us check out late to get in her afternoon nap before our flight!

I would highly recommend and would stay again!

Great location and very comfortable in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this charming house! The weather was rainy and cool while we were in Portland to visit our youngest grandson and his parents, but we were very comfortable in the little house. It has a combo microwave/convection oven and an induction cooktop, both a pleasure to use!

The bed was very comfortable and the shower was super!

We also enjoyed the amazing choices of evening entertainment provided by Netflicks and Roku. Our hosts were quick to respond to a problem and provided extensive information about restaurants in the area😊�

All in all, we had a great experience! I would recommend this VRBO to friends as it is my favorite, so far, in Portland.

Wonderful, romantic little cottage

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this cottage for my son and daughter-in-law as a birthday gift, along with concert tickets, and babysitting their children, so they could have their first get-away without children in many years. They had a wonderful time and loved the cottage and loved walking around in Sellwood. They were married in the old pioneer church 12 years ago so they had fond memories of this lovely district of Portland. My husband and I stayed at this VRBO cottage last year and loved it, so it was my first choice for my son and daughter-in-law. It is cute, well-decorated, well-appointed with everything you need, private but secure and safe. I highly recommend this rental - and the owners are very nice and helpful.

Perfectly modern and efficient, comfortable,

This is a newly constructed studio with updated finishes and radiant flour heating. A king bed is a must for us and this for the bill. Quiet location. We will definitely stay again!
