About the property

Walk to

We have recently finished building our dream house, which included a very private 550sq/ft apartment above our garage. We designed the apartment to the same level of detail as we did our house. It has all hardwood floors, custom tile in the bathroom. AC for those warm summer days. W/D. It comes fully ready to help you enjoy your stay here in Portland as much as possible. Of course, my wife and I will be here as well to help with any questions you might have. We really wanted to make the apartment very private and secure. Both for our sake and the sake of our guest. Guests enter down a a fully fenced in and well lit private walkway and up an enclosed stairwell to access the apartment. We are here if you need us, but out of the way if you don't.

The apartment overlooks the famed Sellwood Park, which has a playground, tennis courts, baseball fields, picnic areas, a public swimming pool, and a whole host of other fun activities. It is only a few short blocks to all of the dining, shopping, and everything else the Sellwood/Moreland Neighborhood has to offer.

The apartment has a queen bed in the bedroom and a Ikea convertible couch the turns into a double bed. Both are topped with memory foam. The apartment can sleep 4 adults, but that could be a little tight. It would be ideal for (2) adults with or without children.

One can ride just over 3 miles to downtown Portland without ever having a car get in their way along the Spring Water Corridor. The corridor also connects to miles and miles of our famed Springwater system that is through out the city of Portland.

We are very proud of what we have built and look forward to sharing it with you. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

About Geoff Denton

My wife and I have each lived in Sellwood-Moreland for 20 years and our both lifelong Portland/Oregon residents. We met in 2001, married in 2005, and now have three kids ages 5 through 8. We love this neighborhood and never plan to leave. It is an amazing place for families. With the park across from our house and our street lined with kids of all ages there is just no better place to be.

Geoff Denton purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Geoff Denton chose Sellwood - Moreland

This property is one of the nicest lots in all of Sellwood-Moreland. It is an extra big lot. The house we have constructed is one of the nicest in the neighborhood as well. We have spared no expense. In doing so we feel we have created a totally cool and unique place of two people or family to come and truly experience Portland, and Sellwood in particular, the way it should be experienced. We were both born in Portland, graduated high school, and independent of each other, chose to spend our adult lives here. We know this place and can help people figure out the best way to make their experience awesome.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a very private, secure, and super comfortable place. You will have your own patio area with a table and BBQ. I spent a lot of time thinking about the apartment in terms of who would be staying there and making sure it would be perfect. I think we are 99% and can't wait for suggestions to take it all of the way to totally perfect!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time in Portland and really enjoyed the apartment. It was perfect for our family and had all the amenities to make it feel like home.It was across the street from a beautiful park that our two year old enjoyed very much and we swam at the public pool which was the highlight for him. It was so fun walking to all the great restaurant in the neighborhood and we really never had to leave Sellwood if we didn't have too. Great location, beautiful apartment and Geoff was always available for any questions ! Thanks Geoff

Owner's Response: Truth be known here, we had a cleaning snafu, the apartment hadn't been cleaned, so Kristen is being even extra nice. We worked through it , but only cause they're good people. You were the perfect guests. Thanks for the nice words and for staying with us....

No better place!

  • 5 of 5

I got more than I expected with my stay. Geoff and his family were wonderful. Easy to text or message about anything. This is a full 1br apartment with everything from a coffee pot to a washer and dryer. I didn't need anything extra while here! I hope to get to visit again. I already know where I'll be staying =)

Amazing location; Apt had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was quite nice. I immediately thought of just what a value it is. We are kind of shy, private folks and were in Portland for a doctor's appointment. Our host was not intrusive at all. We were leaving one morning to take a walk and go to breakfast as he was walking his dog. He asked how our stay had been and,mentioned it was his place. Very cordial.

The neighborhood is really hard to beat, in my opinion. We walked once or twice a day, enjoying the restaurants, shopping, and the New Seasons market. Sellwood park, literally across the street, is beautiful and another good place to head to for a walk.

Overall we were very pleased and would recommend this spot. We just might be back ourselves!

Sellwood Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Geoff's place (sorry we didn't get to meet Shannon). The location across from Sellwood Park is fabulous. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, and as noted is close to restaurants, grocery shopping and the always delicious Grand Central Bakery (way too many temptations to be had there). We would definitely stay there again.
