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.

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.
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.
Hello! This is a totally separate apartment with separate entrance in the back of the house. When you arrive you can access the keys to the apartment with the lockbox installed near the door to the unit. The combination will be provided after booking.
Please remove shoes inside the apartment.
Pets welcome! The pet fee is $10/day. Please wipe off paws on wet and rainy days to keep the apartment as clean as possible. And if you don't mind keep pets off furniture as much as possible. It is much appreciated!
Enjoy your stay and the neighborhood! Go out for a drink or icecream, watch a movie in or down the street at the Moreland Theatre, and have fun.
Just let me know if you need anything or have any questions.
Bathroom with dual vanities, tub and shower. Tile walls and floor. Very light, bright, and fresh
The place was a good size, conveniently located, and John was very responsive to our needs. We appreciated the many maps and guides of the surrounding area in the basement apartment. We were a little surprised, however, how easy it was to hear the family above us; this was not quite as private of an experience as we had expected. We could not only hear their every step, but we could also clearly hear every word of the conversation above us.
The apartment was nice and clean in a very friendly neighborhood. We were pleased with everything and John was always a text away. Thank you for letting us stay at your place.
We enjoyed this comfortable and very clean apartment in this charming neighborhood.
My husband and I rented this unit for the month of May. We were very comfy in the apartment, which was very close to the listing. The bed was VERY comfortable, the mini kitchen was just as described and adequate for our needs. John was very responsive and friendly, both during the booking process and during our stay. It was great having the use of the washer and drier during our stay!
The outside patio was a bit of a disappointment - umbrella old and ripped, chair cushions too dirty to sit on, fire pit rusted out, and planters full of weeds. John did supply annual flowers to plant in the planters, and removed the ripped umbrella during the last week of stay.
Otherwise, we loved the neighborhood and location, and would definitely rent again in this Sellwood area.
The Yukon Getaway was clean and comfortable. All of our needs were met. Thank you, John, for answering any questions we had so promptly.

About the Host, John
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.
