Step up to the huge front porch as you enter this charming 1910 Portland Style home. Before entering the front door, notice the porch swing and porch glider sofa, here is a perfect place to allow the morning sunshine to gently nudge you awake while you drink your morning beverage and contemplate the image of your day to come.
The living room with built-ins has a large flat screen HDTV and DVD player, a sink-into comfortable leather sofa with cushy chairs and a relaxing atmosphere. The large windows allow the sun inside to bounce around the room and nourish not only the striking flora, but warms your heart and soul. Plenty of light and a large table/chairs provides a place to reflect on your day or enjoy an intimate dinner with a special someone.
Your cooking dreams come true in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen with all the amenities. As this is the owner’s kitchen, it is well stocked with spices, cooking utensils, dishes, all appliances you find in your own home.

Plenty of room to create that special recipe you never had time to try at home. Then take the weight off your feet in the sunny, sky-lighted breakfast nook and enjoy the rewards of your culinary creativity.
From the kitchen, walk out to the backyard to find the gas barbecue grill and outside patio table and chairs. A perfect private spot to enjoy the berries growing from the bushes along the wall or the grapes whose vines surround the back of the house. Here you might choose to enjoy a glass of wine, waiting for your grilled dinner as you get a glimpse the night’s plans while looking over to see the always ready hot tub.
Did we mention the bathroom and the amazing shower? ...Step through the glassed door to the granite encased shower where you find three body sprays and two shower heads to engulf you in an invigorating water melody... Or choose the huge claw foot tub to soak your body to relaxation in the provided bath salts. Better yet, head out the bathroom door to the deck and step down to the hot tub where you can soak in the always hot churning waters.
When it is time to rest, snuggle yourself into the queen sized Temperpedic style bed, under 1,000 tc sheets and quilts, as your head rests on the softness of several pillows. From here, you can be lulled to sleep with music from the tv or watch a late night movie on the premium channels. Or better yet… lie still and enjoy the peaceful quiet of the night. Sleep soundly while the air filtration system cleans any minute particles from the air you breathe while you dream of another day in the lush paridise of Oregon.
Lots of lighting throughout makes this home warm anytime of the year. Motion detector outdoor lights see you coming and illuminate your path around the house.

Our host communicated well with us about the details of our stay. We have now stayed twice in this home and loved it both times. The home is lovely and comfortable and has all the amenities that you could want. My husband especially appreciated the seat in the shower and the hand held spray, as he had a broken leg. Our host provided many personal touches and made sure everything was just right for our visit. The neighborhood is adorable. Great for walking on the sidewalks, quirky cute stores abound, the restaurants are all fantastic with delicious food, and everything is very convenient. It is easy to travel to downtown Portland from the neighborhood. Our daughter attended Lewis and Clark college which is just a short ride from the neighborhood. All in all we had a great stay and would definitely stay in this home again if we had the privilege of doing so.
My grandmother stayed here and absolutely loved it. Very cozy and welcoming, large and well stocked. She was so excited to find some food in the pantry and the lovely gas fireplace. Quiet and close to everything in Sellwood, this will definitely be a place I recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
Rose's house offers the perfect balance between a home and a guest space. Every possible amenity and comfort of home is provided, within a sparkling clean environment with plenty of space prepared for guest use. The location is central in sweet Sellwood, convenient walking distance to many shops and restaurants. We had a beautiful stay!
Rose was lovely, welcoming, and as accommodating as can be. Her home is well supplied with anything you may need to make your stay comfortable. We were able to visit family and have a BBQ with them while staying at her home. The location was perfect for us as we wanted to walk to restaurants, bakeries, stores, etc. I would recommend this listing to anyone.
Rose was extremely accommodating, she checked in with us several times to make sure our needs were met and we didn't need anything. The house met all our needs, very clean, very quiet. It was in the neighborhood where our son lives and was a very walkable distance to all amenities. We would definitely consider staying here the next time we visit Portland.
A beautiful home. Everything (and more) for our everyday living was provided. Rose is a wonderful host. The Sellwood neighborhood has wonderful restaurants and shops. You won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

About the Host, Rose
I am thrilled to welcome new friends to my home. I have been in the travel/tourism business for years. I lived in Santa Fe, NM; Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona; San Diego and Los Angeles California; Racine, Wisconsin and Pensacola, Florida. I found a home in Oregon and moved here in 1997 discovering all of what I enjoyed in other places I've lived. I am an advocate for Oregon through my work and my hobbies. I enjoy seeing others discover the beauties of Oregon, especially of my
friendly neighborhood. Sellwood is a great place to walk and discover the quaint Portland antique shops or to dine Al fresco at the neighborhood food carts and a variety of wonderful restaurants.
Since I love to travel. I am always looking for great places to visit and I have traveled to many countries over the years. Another reason I welcome people from near and far.
