This chic two bedroom apartment is in the heart of Portland just minutes from pretty much everything. The upstairs of a 1924 bungalow, it's completely separate from the main house with its own covered entrance. One of the things we love about Portland is that it's a major city with a smaller town feel. Here in SE Portland we can go a week or more without ever getting into our car because everything is so close. There's so much to see and do here, and we can't wait to share it with you!
The place has a fully outfitted kitchen (though no dishwasher), plush towels and bedding, and a lovely great room layout. Two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one that can be configured with two XL twin beds or one king size bed. Each bedroom has a walk-in closet with drawers and/or shelves for plenty of space for your clothes and all your things. We don't have a TV, but a strong Wifi signal gives you access to the internet on all your devices to watch whatever you like.
You're welcome to enjoy the front porch swing or go to the backyard garden to graze on whatever is ripe. Everything is organic!
We have an organic vegetable garden out back and always have more than we can eat! You're welcome to browse or to harvest vegetables, fruits and herbs if you're planning on cooking something up.
- This is a non-smoking home and property.

We look forward to sharing the many things Portland and the Pacific Northwest has to offer and helping you get oriented when you arrive. Of course we're happy to answer any questions you have throughout your stay and will do our best to accommodate any needs you have that may arise.
We are Carole and Osiel (Oz), married for 25 years now. We moved to Portland in 1993 and fell in love with Portland the Pacific Northwest. Oz is a physicist teaching and doing research at the University of Portland, and I'm a Naturopath and Acupuncturist on extended sabbatical. We've both traveled extensively in the US and abroad and know what it's like to have wonderful accommodations and pretty terrible as well, so we want to make sure we provide a truly wonderful place for people to stay when they come here to Portland. We love growing our own food ~ veggies, fruits, berries, nuts, and soon chicken eggs and shiitake mushrooms, and absolutely love to be out walking, wildcrafting, cycling, swimming, camping...just about anything you can do out side enjoying Nature. All that food growing and gathering is to "feed" our passion for fabulously delicious whole food dishes from around the world. In our travels we've thoroughly enjoyed the native foods, natural landscapes, culture, history and architecture, and especially the amazing people we've met along the way. We're looking forward to meeting you and helping to make sure your stay here in the Pacific Northwest is all you hope for it to be and more!
