About This Listing
This is a detached guest house in SW Portland. Located in the Vermont Hills area this is a free standing guest house on my beautiful property which is surrounded by gardens, trees and lots of privacy. With a beachy ambience and lush landscape, this guest house is a perfect stopping place for single person or a couple visiting or exploring Portland.
1-2 people (couple with a small child ok too). No pets allowed. Though we do travel frequently, the main house is usually occupied so you are sharing the property with others. The guest house is quiet as is the neighborhood which is residential. In the summer, there is plenty of space to be outside and you are welcome to the backyard and the patio area at any time. I am an avid gardener and you will often times see me outside planting vegetable in the summer and watering the many flowers and plants around. If we are traveling, there is a property manager that will greet you and help with anything during your stay. I am okay if you have a visitor(s) come see you but no big parties or soirees of any kind on the patio or the yard. This is a home environment, very peaceful and serene and I would like to have people come and stay who are respectful of that kind of atmosphere.
The amenities are as following:
A Queen bed
A sitting area with couch/coffee table that faces the tv (satellite included).
A small work/dining table (wireless internet included)
Small kitchenette area with stove top, sink, mini fridge, microwave, coffee/tea maker
Separate bathroom (newly remodeled) with tub and shower
There is ample room for clothing with a walk in closet and a small dresser.
Laundry available on site for free
ample parking on the property
We are located about 10-15 minutes from Downtown portland, about 10 min drive to OHSU (Oregon Health & Sciences University), very close to Multnomah Village which has some great places to eat and shop. Walking distance to Southwest Community Center (about 15 min walk) which has a gym, pool etc. There are several parks around as well. There are a few buses that run downtown (however walk to bus stop is 15-20 min).
Even though our host was out of town, she texted us frequently with up to date information that enabled us find her home easily and get settled in. She had a house sitter that welcomed us by name and answered any remaining questions that we had. The cottage was super clean, great view of the gardens, and a lovely grass area to enjoy the weather. The location of this studio home was within walking distance to family members which was important for us. This is a place we would enjoy staying at again!
The neighborhood was incredibly peaceful and quiet, but still very close to many key areas including downtown Portland and Beaverton. The house was exactly as expected: comfortable and with a view of the garden. Fresh flowers were put throughout the room to make us feel welcome. Renata was very quick to respond to questions during our stay and kept us updated if her schedule changed. All in all, we had a great stay!
This place is exactly as described....incredibly clean, cute and comfortable....and the garden is gorgeous and very peaceful. I hope to stay here again on my next trip to Portland. Parking was convenient and secure which was a big plus for this visit. I met Renata who was friendly and very (email hidden)e you next time!
Renata's quaint guesthouse felt like home! Not only was the surrounding garden beautiful, but the guesthouse itself was bright, pretty, and very comfortable. It's located in a quiet, charming neighborhood. We met Renata once in passing and she was sweet and kind. There's not one bad thing I can say about my experience. If you are looking for a completely private room with a gorgeous surrounding, I'd suggest you stay here, 100%.
Thank you Renata!!
Renata's guest house was the perfect little place equipped with anything you might need during your stay in Portland. The best part of our stay was enjoying our coffee in the morning outside in the beautiful garden. Her house by far is the most adorable on the block! The guest house was very clean and the check in check out process was very simple. Its in a great location about 5 minutes from the freeway and just far enough tucked in a peaceful neighborhood! Thanks for a wonderful stay in Portland! We will be back :)
Renata nous a permis un séjour agréable de 5 jours dans une maisonnette privée à l'arrière du garage, est disponible et soucieuse de nous aider pour les moindres problèmes. Bien qu'absente, elle a su faire appel à une personne extérieure et de confiance notamment pour apporter un petit aspirateur.
L'annonce est correcte mais quelques différences demeurent : les meubles sont agencés différemment, la photo principale est celle de la maison des hôtes et non celle où nous dormons, la table à manger est pliée et est difficilement utilisable dans la mesure où la TV et son décodeur y sont posés. La maisonnette ne semble pas être optimisée en terme d'agencement et d'isolation thermique. Cependant, le cadre est sympathique, calme et très floral en cette période de mai. La proximité avec les commerces, Multnomah Village et le centre de Portland a été appréciée.
A conseiller pour 2 personnes maximum.
About the Host, Renata
I am a creative fun people person. I have a home here in beautiful Portland Oregon and also a condo in West Hollywood CA and travel frequently between both places.
I've spent a lot of time gardening and truly cultivating a beautiful outdoor environment on my property. Each year brings new challenges and opportunities for me to learn more as I continue to plant new things.
