Beautiful Laurelhurst Park and public transportation are minutes away with shops and dining all within walking distance - 10 minutes to downtown and 15 minutes to the airport - an ideal guest cottage in an ideal location!!

The space
This quaint 1 bedroom downstairs furnished apt. has a separate key, private entrance, and courtyard. The apt. is well-lit with two windows and also has a back door to a beautiful garden, patio, fountain and barbecue. The location is Laurelhurst - one of Portland's oldest and most beautiful planned communities on a quiet, tree lined street with beautiful old homes.Major shopping, wonderful restaurants and one of Portland's most beautiful parks are also within walking distance. This ideal location is only two blocks from a major bus line and 5 blocks from the MAX train. It is also within walking distance of favorite east side shopping, dining, wine bars and breweries.

When you enter this mid-century decorated apartment you will immediately feel at home! You will find a comfortable queen sized bed, overstuffed chair and desk with the latest mesh technology, wireless internet, flat screen TV with cable, Blu-ray CD player, a collection of movies in the bedroom. The newly tiled bathroom has a tub and shower and, although there is not a separate "living room", the kitchen and pantry is fully furnished with everything you may need to make your own meals if you choose (i.e. microwave, gas stove, refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, dishes, pots/pans, spices, condiments, etc.). Other amenities include a washer and dryer with laundry soap, ironing board and plenty of extra storage room for your luggage.

More information on our historic home can be found on Oregon Encyclopedia website. Search for "Brick House Beautiful". Our home has also been in "Better Home and Gardens" magazine and has been twice on the cover of "Old House Journal".

If we are home when you arrive, we will be happy to give you a tour of our home and offer you a cup of tea or a glass of wine while you have complete access to our English gardens, courtyard and barbecue during your stay. We think you will be pleased if you choose to stay in the "Quaint English Garden Apartment " located in our beautiful historic home!

Guest access
Guests have their own entrance and after booking, we will send lock box info!
We have spent considerable time preparing to short term rent once again very responsibly! We are implementing policies and procedures that meet and exceed state guidelines. It is our mission to provide a safe, responsible environment for our guests!

Other things to note
We like to entertain and will sometimes have friends over for a barbeque, dinner party or even a small party. Guests are always welcome to join us. However, guests do have their own private courtyard with privacy, a place to eat outside and enjoy the lovely pots of flowers.

We live in a historic home in Laurelhurst, in Portland. Sue is a retired principal and Bob retired from the big aerospace company in Seattle (Boeing). Sue has a passion for decorating and gardening (is very creative and good at both), Bob is into art and also enjoys and appreciates creating and living in a tasteful environment. We both enjoy entertaining, hosting frequent social gatherings in our home in our English garden or just having friends over for a "glass" of wine. We also have a house on the Oregon Coast that we love and enjoy sharing with family and friends and that is also available for short term rental. We stay constantly busy with our "projects" spending time with the grandchildren, try to fit some time in for a little golf and getting away for a few days from time to time. As hosts and your staying in our Portland apartment, we would be happy to invite our guests for a tour of our historic home, sit with us and enjoy a glass of wine in front of the inglenook fireplace or on the patio in the garden. If our guests prefer to left alone we are sensitive to that as well. Our goal is to provide a welcoming, comfortable, and tasteful environment for our guests, and possibly develop new friendships. If you are staying in our beach house, you will have total privacy. We will not be there to greet you. We provide you with a code to the lock box and you are have the home to yourself. If you need something you can call us and we will do what we need to address your needs. As guests we appreciate friendly hosts, but we do appreciate a host sensitivity to our privacy. We also appreciate hosts that provide recommendations and insight into places to visit and things to do. As to a life motto we both think that, Live, Love, Laugh and Learn is how we approach life.
