We were visiting our, son, daughter-in-law and new baby in Portland. We were so grateful to find this lovely home to rent for 9 days while in town. The owner, Rose, has a wonderfully well-stocked kitchen where we prepared many meals for the harried new parents. We couldn't have been more comfortable in Rose's lovely home where every detail was attended to. Sellwood is a charming neighborhood and we were happy to be able to walk to shops and restaurants.
Rose is fantastic, and she has done a great job decorating the house and managing the garden. The kitchen is spacious and fully stocked. There is a front and back porch that are great for lounging, and you are two minutes from great restaurants, food trucks and unique shops. We got around on bikes rented from Sellwood Cycle, just a few blocks away. A short walk the other direction takes you to a beautiful park with running and biking trails and a pool. The neighborhood is safe, friendly and charming. Highly recommend this house!
Rose's place is truly a home away from home - fully equipped for anything! We didn't cook, but could have easily done multi-course meals. The bed was very comfortable, as was the living room couch/chaise. The bathroom was large, with an authentic claw-foot tub and a very modern separate shower. Back yard is very private, with a hot tub and grill. Our favorite spot, though, was the front porch swing! Spent mornings and evenings there enjoying the weather and coffee or a glass of wine! A very short walk to good restaurants, food trucks or the park. We'll definitely return!

We really enjoyed staying at Rose's home. It was warm and inviting. I sat in the porch swing everyday reading a book or on the glider couch with a glass of wine. We enjoyed the fantastic shower, it was like being in a spa. We sat in the hot tub every morning before we started our day of wine tours and site seeing. Rose was so helpful with suggestions on wine tours, bike rentals and restaurants in the area. I would stay there again and have suggested it to several friends since we returned!
