Photos and Description of the Southwest Portland vacation studio rental

Private Studio with Hot Tub. GLBTQ Friendly, all races welcome. Permitted.

The Portland Garden Apartment is a studio designed to soothe the senses, offering a respite from a day of sightseeing or other activity, and provide you with a comfortable, upscale haven for rejuvenating your body and enhancing your relationship.

Private off-street parking is offered, in fact you have the entire driveway. A tall hand-crafted fence surrounds the 1/4 acre garden and patio offering you visual privacy in a busy neighborhood.

The interior of the Garden Apartment offers a comfortable king bed with upscale linens, & flat screen TV with streaming capability. For your business needs high speed wireless internet is available.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all you might need to create your meals and a gas BBQ awaits the chef out on the patio. Seating is available both indoors and out. We will be happy to provide you with a list of our kitchen inventory to help your planning.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower with a skylight in the shower. You will find our Garden Apartment cozy, but with room for everything.

A light footprint

In creating our Portland Garden Apartment, one of our goals was to recycle and re-purpose as much as possible. We had fun doing it and thought we’d share this list with our guests:

*The masonry for the patio came from a Portland school when they updated.

*The rocks that surround the patio were buried in the gardens here from the ‘50s.

*The decking was removed from Rob’s brother’s house (with permission:) and reinstalled.

*The deck framing and masonry supports came from a Craig’s List ad - the owners were re-designing their back yard.

*The hot tub came from another Craig’s List ad – the super nice owners were moving and couldn’t take it along. PS moving the hot tub was fun.

*The ceiling in the apartment is original. We removed the sheetrock, painted the beams, and left the fir attic decking alone. If you look carefully at the ceiling you’ll see the blue grading marks on the lumber from 1945 or so: 3,3,3,2,3 etc

*The wood frames inside the wall niches came from old cedar barn wood.

*In early 2015, we installed a photovoltaic solar panel system on the roof. You can’t see it from the driveway or the guest side of the house, but it produces enough electricity to power almost all the needs of the house, including the hot tub.

We try to not use any herbicides, and recycle just about everything that the recycling people will take.

Come on over. We'll leave the light on for you.
