700 sq. ft. 4-room apartment on first level of 3-story townhome located in a quiet development named Shadow Spring. Access the private entrance by way of steps and a pathway on the right side of the driveway. A deck serves as the entrance to the apartment, as well as a place to relax outdoors. Close to parks, restaurants, shopping , Intel, Nike, Columbia Sportswear, Westside Medical Center, Gordon Faber Recreation Complex and is served by bus and light rail, and by car via Sunset Highway.

The space
This furnished apartment consists of four rooms:

BEDROOM: Two comfortable twin beds, plus an ironing board, iron, and extra blankets in the closet. In addition, an adult-size sleeping cot is available if an additional family member is staying overnight with parents.

LIVING ROOM: Love seat and single chair, coffee table, large flat screen Smart TV, desk, and dining table that seats four.

KITCHENETTE: Located off of the living room and bedroom, the kitchen is stocked with basic supplies (plates, bowls, glasses, flatware, knife set, and cookware), and has a small refrigerator/ freezer, microwave oven, toaster, portable induction cooktop, Breville Smart Oven, and a Keurig beverage unit.

BATHROOM: Includes a full-size tub and shower and extra towels in the bathroom cabinet. Shampoo and body wash are included.

It’s GREATLY appreciated if you can avoid using perfume and scented products in the space, as the smells get embedded in the carpet, bedding, and on upholstery. My desire is to provide a space with air so clean that even people who have allergies to scented products or asthma can stay without getting sick.

DECK: Includes a table and two chairs for outdoor seating and eating. It's a great place to enjoy the sun, trees, the resident squirrels (and occasional sightings of other wildlife) in as quiet an atmosphere as possible. Two additional chairs are available if requested in advance of your stay.

NEARBY ORCHARD PARK: There are walking paths and a disc golf course. If you want to borrow the two disc golf sets I purchased for guests, please let me know if advance so I can place them in the apartment before you arrive.

IMPORTANT NOTES FOR GUESTS ABOUT CHANGES DUE TO COVID 19:

I have minimized the number of smaller items in the space due to the extra cleaning protocols I have in place to keep you safe. If it can't be easily washed or disinfected in some way, it will not be in the space. Also, my husband and I are both of the age where we have to be extra careful to not be exposed to the virus (and he is a disabled veteran with a chemically damaged lung), so I will only be available by text or phone (unless we wear a mask and stay at least 6 feet apart if you want an in-person conversation).

Since I am very careful about when I leave my house and where I go, I will have done everything possible to keep you safe. Since I clean it myself, you will not be exposed to a cleaning professional whose circle of friends and family I cannot control. The apartment is vacant at least one night between guests and during that time I ventilate the space by opening windows and using fans.

The apartment has a separate heating and air conditioning system from the upper two levels of the home, so there will be no “shared air” between host and guests.

I welcome questions about your concerns, so feel free to contact me if you would like more specifics about what I am doing to make the place safe for you!

Guest access
One parking space is available on the right side of the private driveway. From there, you walk down a hill by way of 24 gravel steps each with a 6" rise. Although there is a railing next to the steps, it is not considered "handicap accessible." The path is lit from dusk to dawn to provide safe passage after dark. At the base of the hill, the pathway leads you to the steps that access the deck and the entry door. A lockbox containing the key to the apartment is attached to the deck railing and you will be provided a code for the lockbox via text or email a few days before your check-in date.

Other things to note
The apartment has its own heating and ventilation system, but since I have health issues related to perfumes and smoke (and need to enter the space to clean and do repairs), I mostly use scent-free products in the apartment and do not allow smoking anywhere on the premises for guests or visitors. This makes the apartment safer for travelers with allergies as well, so if you do use perfumed products during your stay, please use the bathroom fan and/or open windows to ventilate the air during your stay (when possible). Thanks for your understanding. Judy

Location

Hillsboro, Oregon, United States

The Shadow Spring Development consists of 20 buildings (40 housing units). Many residents work for Intel or other tech-related firms in the area. Orchard Park is an easy walk from the apartment and contains a walking/biking path through forest and wetlands, and a disc golf course. Low-rise commercial buildings are nearby and include a walkable "park" where you can observe ducks and geese near a fountain and pond.

Within one mile you will find multiple grocery store options (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, New Seasons, Fred Meyer, Safeway). If you want to eat out or use Uber Eats and other delivery services, there are many options from which to choose. Fast food, coffee shops, and restaurants are close by, but restrictions due to the pandemic have forced many to have reduced hours and restrictions about indoor and outdoor seating.

Kaiser Permanente's Westside Medical Center is three blocks away. "The Streets" Outdoor Walkable Shopping Center is three blocks away and includes a Macy's, REI, H&M, and many other smaller shops. Two major health clubs (24 Hour Fitness and LA Fitness) are within a few miles of the apartment. Visiting Intel, Nike, Columbia Sportwear, and the Gordon Faber Recreation Center? They're all within a few miles.
Since we are on the western edge of the Urban Growth Boundary, you don't have to go far to be in the countryside and on your way to the Oregon coast. Professional golf courses, the Banks-Vernonia State Trail, and Horning's Hideout wedding and camping venue are within driving distance, as well.

I am a retired elementary public school teacher and have an adult daughter and son (a university professor in Seattle, WA and a counselor/art therapist in Santa Fe, NM). . During my retirement I've enjoyed long-distance cycling, primarily to enjoy an annual week-long ride (Cycle Oregon) in my home state.. The week rides included a difficult 350+ mile ride in six days and I loved the challenge of climbing mountains and covering long distances with 2,200 fellow riders. Each year the route changed, so I got to experience hidden places in my state every time I completed a new ride. After I finished both the Seattle to Portland annual bike ride and my fifth Cycle Oregon ride in 2018, it was time to shorten the number of hours in the saddle and ride my bike just for fun, as it was getting more and more difficult to manage all of my responsibilities at home with all of the training hours required to do the longer rides. Until 2008, I had never been able to travel outside of North America, but had visited many states and parts of Canada. That year I purchased a sporty small BMW and solo-traveled to Munich, Germany to pick up it up. It was thrilling to spend two weeks driving around the southern part of Germany, refamiliarizing myself with the German language I studied in college many years ago, stocking up on chocolate at the Ritter Sport chocolate factory, driving at high speeds on the autobahn, and visiting the largest amusement park in Germany (Europa Park). Amusement Park. Five years later I returned to Germany with a group of roller coaster enthusiasts from the U.S. to visit amusement parks in central Europe, adding 10 days to the trip so I could explore parts of France, Switzerland, and Austria. In 2015 I took my 14-year-old grandaughter to the United Kingdom for an amusement park tour through England and Wales with American Coaster Enthusiasts, supplemented by additional time exploring London and Paris for a few days. In 2018 I visited the country of Denmark (accompanied by my daughter and granddaughter) where we were able to experience bike riding in the city of Copenhagen, island-hopped to see where our ancestors lived, and staying at an Airbnb "farm" populated by horses, goats, chicken and new kittens! It was lovely driving through the countryside and visiting Legoland for a da before returning for a few more adventures in Copenhagen. Now that my disabled veteran husband requires more help, I spend most of my time taking care of him, caring for our home, our wonderful Ragdoll cat buddies, and hosting Airbnb guests in a dedicated space on the lower level of our townhome. I love where I live in the outskirts of Portland, Oregon, but also love to visit new places and see how others in the world live and work. When that is not possible, Airbnb hosting allow me to provide a comfortable place for others as they experience their own adventures throughout the Portland area and other parts of Oregon.

During your stay
I am available via text message through the Airbnb app or a phone call, but if an in-person conversation is desired, I will be wearing a mask and ask that guests do the same during this pandemic.
