Nestled on a quiet, leafy street just a few short blocks from Sellwood center, our little house is walking distance (walk score 82) to parks, shopping, and restaurants. We are also walking distance to the Max (1 mile), buses (< 1 block), and the famous Portland bike trails. Built in 1910, lovingly restored, with a quiet and landscaped backyard our house is ideal for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families. NOTE: 30 day minimal rental period!! (Portland law)
Our house was built in 1910 and has been beautifully and sensitively renovated. The kitchen and bathroom and windows have been recently updated. The bathroom is fully tiled in the style of the 1910s. The kitchen currently has a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, and an electric stove.
Beautiful original wood floors, high ceilings, big (well-insulated and mostly new) windows, and period details. Lots of vegetation for privacy. The fully-fenced yard is particularly pleasant with trees and flowers and a rock garden.
One bedroom is a full-sized bedroom with a large closet. The second bedroom overlooks the backyard and is very small. Nonetheless the daybed expands into a king bed and there is still plenty of space for even a small chest of drawers. Closed, a second twin would fit in the room. The closets are also fairly large for a small house. For additional storage, we do have a large one-car garage and a long driveway. So plenty of space for parking off-street.
The back patio is large and covered with a table and chairs and a nice seating area so that you can enjoy the outdoors even on rainy Portland days :-)
The entire house will be yours for your stay. Lovely neighbors, BTW :-)
Interaction with guests
We won't bother you, but we are only a phone call away and are very prompt in responding. Even while we're out of town, we have family in Portland, OR who can always be there for you in a pinch.
Other things to note
Our house is only available for mid-August 2017 through February 2018. It's ideal for someone thinking about moving to Sellwood who would like the true Sellwood experience. Or as a vacation rental in August and September.
This is our home and we expect you to treat it as your own! We have lovely neighbors who appreciate considerate and friendly guests.
