About Julie Lewis

I have two cats, a Siberian Husky dog and a parrot that live in the main upstairs house, but they will not visit you unless you want them to. I have a master's degree in Nutrition and Biochemistry and now I work as a craft artist and I own and run a very small footwear company.

Julie Lewis purchased this apartment in 2000

Will come back here during my next trip to Portland

  • 5 of 5

Julie is such a gracious host. Enjoyed the house. Something about how it is built that allowed my sister’s family and my family to a perfect reunion. As much as we enjoyed outdoors, our kids loved to stay at home. This is very close to downtown and the prefect central place if you need to call vet Portland in 3-4 days. Thank you Julie, and her cat and dog (whom our kids befriended in no time) for the wonderful memories!

Large Basement Apartment Outside Portland

  • 4 of 5

As described on the site. Perfect size for 6 adults. Plenty of towels and linen. We didn't cook there, but kitchen seemed adequately stocked. Be advised, this is not a good rental for those who are allergic to cats. I am quite allergic and had a scratchy throat and itchy red eyes anytime we were inside. There was no visible cat hair or odors, but there are cat doors and carpets. For me, it was not pleasant.

Owner's Response: Hello; As I mention in the listing there are two cats who live on the property in the main house. They are never allowed into apartment unless renters let them in, but those who are seriously allergic to cats will likely have a reaction even if the cats are not regularly on the premises. There is a cat door into the bathroom from the main room as I used to live in the apartment with others in the main house. I am not sure what renter means about cat carpets...carpets are cleaned and maintained regularly and there are no carpets especially designated for cats. As I allow pets, occasionally I get guests with pet cats as well. Thanks so much, Julie

Clean, quiet, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with our stay: the deck and trees were wonderful, the kitchen worked well for breakfasts and lunches, my teens were happy the internet was strong, and we enjoyed the friendly cats. A good setting for three generations of family.

Beautiful deck

  • 4 of 5

We were a varied party, all ages including a 1 year old. Owner was very accommodating and easy to work with, responded immediately to any requests. The place was very quiet and had a beautiful deck. I think we all fell asleep out there at least once. The house is built into a hill and the apartment is on the back in the basement. It is really nice. The only problem was getting down the hill on the side of the house to get to the apt. There were big steps and lights at night but if you have problems with going up or down hills or any balance issues be really careful. We all managed okay. The little ones had a great time. The owner has a beautiful dog and cats so we felt right at home. The place was impossible to find without a gps. But once you're there it's really beautiful. No dishwasher so take paper plates and plastic utensils with you. It's close to the zoo and rose gardens.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Great View! We had a wonderful stay! The property is very private and accessible to the city, shopping, sites, etc. Julie was very nice and helpful. There were nice touches like soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, kitchen staples. The only glitch is that one couple in our group complained the mattress in one of the bedrooms was a bit past its prime and they rolled toward the middle of the bed! :) Not too bad in some situations! We would stay at this property again. Thank you!
