The Space

Beautifully furnished one bedroom apartment with separate entrance, kitchenette, bathroom, large screen TV with cable, WIFI, cozy bed with new linens, and hardwood floors. This is an ideal unit for staying just one night or many. Although it's a basement apartment, it has tall ceilings and is very bright.

The kitchenette is equipped with a mini fridge, wine cooler, bar sink, micro wave, toaster oven, hot plate and coffee maker. But you may not need any of these because the Yukon Getaway is within blocks of world class dining, movie theatre, coffee shops, shopping, and everything you could possibly need. Here is a list of what is available withing 1/2 mi: Papa Haydn's, Yukon Tavern, Iron Horse Restaurant, Dairy Queen, QFC, art stores, antique shops, wine bars, ice cream, Starbucks, Marsee Baking, Cha Cha Cha Mexican Restaurant, Sellwood Yoga Studio, Salons, Dry cleaners, the best sushi in Portland, and Oaks Bottom Brewery. Some of the best local food carts are also in the Sellwood neighborhood.

Sellwood/Moreland is one of the premier neighborhoods in Portland, and the Yukon Getaway is in the heart of it. Voted the best family neighborhood by Portland Monthly Magazine, Sellwood/Moreland has it all. Westmoreland Park is within easy walking distance, as well as the Springwater Cooridor, Sellwood Park, Oaks Park, and Oaks Bottom wildlife refuge. I'll gladly point you in the direction of all the wonderful activities this neighborhood has to offer. But if you'd rather discover the neighborhood on your own, that's fine too.

There is a lockbox with key to get into the unit, and once you're settled in, if you have questions about what is around the neighborhood to do or see, just let me know.

Pets are welcome! There is an additional fee of $5/day. Just consider the pet as one additional person the fee will automatically be added.

Portland is known for its public transportation. It has some of the best in the country. Two bus lines are within one block away. The 19 will take you directly downtown, and it only takes about 10 minutes. Cost is about $2. It's a great deal.

  • This apartment is great! I was visiting Portland with my mom and we both greatly enjoyed our stay in the Yukon Getaway. My mom slept in the main bedroom and she said it was very comfortable, while I slept on the futon, which was also very comfortable. This apartment was well equipped with everything that we needed and more and John was very easy to contact whenever we needed him. His suggestions about where to eat in the neighbourhood were also great - the Jade Teahouse was delicious!
    When we were planning our visit to Portland, we didn't realize what a great neighbourhood Sellwood would be. Just a block away is great cafe which we went to every morning called Renee's and just a few more blocks to the southwest were some great shops including a spice shop, a 1920s style market, a homesteading store, a New Seasons grocery story and a sock boutique!
    So, although it is very easy to get downtown from the Yukon Getaway, I would highly recommend wandering around the Sellwood neighbourhood too!
    Great apartment, great location! We hope to be back soon.

  • John was a great host even though I did not meet him. The place was well done, and the accommodations were very comfortable. The bathrobes were a nice touch. This place is within walking distance of tons of places to eat and drink. The only minor downside is that you can hear the neighbors upstairs quite clearly (and likely vice versa). Other than that, the place is quite a deal! It's also worth a mention that the shower pressure is amazing!

  • Nice, clean lil place in a great neighborhood. Blocks from great restaurants, coffee, local beer, grocery store, and more. Super helpful and responsive host.

  • Our host John was in touch with me any time I had a question. The place was exactly as it appeared in the photos, very neat and clean. Very comfy bed. Nice place to come back to after a long day. The only downside I can think of about the experience was that the entrance was at the back of the house and the noise from the people walking around and talking in the upstairs living space was bothersome. I don't know if that's just to be expected when you're in a basement area. Overall it was a nice stay.

  • I never got to meet John unfortunately because he was out of town, but he was readily accessible by phone and called back immediately. His daylight basement rental is in a great area of Portland. The house is beautiful and the walkways to the rental well lighted at night. The Yukon Street Getaway is lovely with smooth, modern decor. The bedding is super comfortable! Nice touch to have 2 sinks in the well equipped bath! Great and huge entertainment area, with a sweet little breakfast nook for 2. I lost my phone and camera and he responded and helped me immediately. Overall a great experience even for one night! Thank you and Aloha to you John, Nora & Malia

  • John was super accommodating! He allowed an early check in and last minute late check out which I felt totally bad for. Because I was traveling with others and they had to leave for Seattle the previous night, we were on the go a lot so couldn't help tidy up the place but he was super nice about it! We absolutely love the place! It's so cute, clean and convenient to everything. The futon and bed was comfy love the bathroom.
    I definitely recommend John for your stay!

    Thank you so much John for your patience and hospitality! Sorry again for the mess and last minute check out!

  • What a wonderful place to stay! Warm, comfortable, perfect location and loved the private entrance. It is just as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures. John was the best host. Responsive, friendly, very easy to work with. We would highly recommend his place and look forward to staying there again!

  • John was an excellent host, although we didn't meet him our communications with John via email were very impressive and he was always available if we had questions and was very accommodating. The apartment was exactly as listed and was clean and tidy and very light and comfortable, the location was very convenient and close to down town. The laundry room also came in handy. The Neighborhood was fantastic, great restaurants, cafes, beautiful houses in the neighborhood and friendly people.

  • John was an excellent host. His place was amazing. We really felt at home and treated in the apartment. John goes out of his way to communicate and make sure everything is taken care of and to your liking. I highly recommend him again.

  • The house was clean and comfy, and John was very easy to coordinate with. He checked in by phone (because he was not in Portland) to make sure we'd arrived and had everything we need. Easy stay!

I grew up in Portland and feel fortunate to live in such a fantastic city and neighborhood, and I'm excited to share it with you. I'm a very active person and I enjoy all the great activities Portland has to offer, including skiing, snowboarding, surfing, biking, running, you name it. I would love to make recommendations about what to do during your stay here. There are many things very close by. You won't be disappointed with the accommodations or the activities that are available to you. I've traveled to France, Germany, and Japan, and truly appreciate the diverse cultures around the world. I feel humbled when I travel because of all the warm and kind people I meet. I want your experience here in Portland to be great and I'll do what I can to help you enjoy your stay.
