"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?!"

We're a family of native Oregonians with two rescue pups and a Lynx Point Siamese. When we're not working, our favorite activities include traveling, whitewater rafting, renovating old homes, restoring the family’s farmhouse in the country, and trying as many new restaurants as is physically possible. After 15+ years in the neighborhood, we were lucky enough to be able to build our dream home in our dream location, and included an apartment to be able to share our love of Sellwood with others.
