An inviting basement apartment located in the heart of the Sellwood neighborhood, with a home theater system, an assortment of musical instruments, and private entry. Walk to restaurants, cafes, shops, parks, bus, grocery store.
Sellwood Central Basement Suite is a separate private apartment below the main part of the house we live in. A private entrance with your own unique keypad entry code brings you into the spacious living room. The bedroom has a double bed and a bunkbed with two single mattresses - and more people can be accommodated with the queen hide-a-bed in the living room. The bathroom is off of the bedroom. The radiant floor heat, fairly high ceilings and abundant natural light are the source of its warm open feeling. And even on the hottest summer days, it stays fairly cool.
A projector shows Blu-ray/DVD movies on a 110" screen, and the surround sound completes the home theater experience as though you were at the movies. That same audio system can be used as an FM stereo - or you can plug your iPhone into it and play your own tunes. And if you can stream video on your laptop (using our wifi), you can hook this up to the home theater as well.
There are musical instruments (keyboard, drum set, plus more) that are there to be played.
Though there isn't a full kitchen, the refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, water dispenser and kitchenware will get you far.
Done exploring inside? Then it's time to explore outside! Within blocks, you have cafes, restaurants, food carts, a tea shop, grocery stores, a library, bookstore, parks, the Willamette River, antiques, boutiques... the walkscore website gives it a 92 out of 100! There's also a bus stop half a block away.
We have some bicycles you can borrow (and you can even rent more bicycles 10 blocks south at Bicycle Commuter). There's an amazing bike/pedestrian path along the river all the way into downtown Portland.
Your stay comes with wifi, shared use of the utility room with its laundry facilities, free parking, and much more. If we're around, come knock on our door and we'll help you figure out what's going on around town.
One bedroom apartment with home theater system (120" screen projector, surround sound), a variety of musical instruments (drum kit, keyboard, and more), mini-fridge, microwave, water dispenser, coffee maker, toaster oven, shared laundry room.
It depends how much interaction you're interested in. We try to be home to greet your and show you in. If you're up for more than that and we're available, great - otherwise, with your own entrance, you can be as autonomous as you want to be!
We moved here because we wanted to live where there was a lot to do within a few blocks, and we weren't a slave to our car. There are parks, cafes, restaurants, shops, grocery, bars, library, bus stop.... All within a few blocks! People are out and about when the weather is good (and even when it's not) - it's a friendly, vibrant neighborhood atmosphere.
We're a half block from Tri-Met's #70 bus stop! We're in a car2go home area - an awesome car share business model. And if you're so inclined, walking and biking will get you far here.

Beautiful home and neighborhood!! We were very comfortable in this cozy basement suite, and enjoyed jammin' out with the instruments! Dave and Silke were very nice and helpful, they provided great tips for our travel plans.
Dave and Silke were amazing. Very hospitable. Every detail was attended to and the space was very inviting and cool! I will stay here again!!
Dave and Silke were wonderful hosts, and we were so lucky that they were able to accommodate us on such short notice. It was just my sister and I that stayed there, so it was giant! You could easily sleep many more people.
We particularly liked that there was a keypad private door entry, so we could come and go as we pleased.
The location is fantastic - easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the park.
I would highly recommend this place! In fact, I've already recommended it to a number of friends and family.
For our first Airbnb and Portland experience the Sellwood house was the perfect place to stay. It was clean, comfortable, cozy, and had everything we needed. The neighborhood was also very cool, unique, and close to everything we wanted to see. Dave and Silke were great hosts and made us feel right at home. We'll definitely be back soon.
The Sellwood neighborhood is great. Dave and Silke are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed the opportunity to not only stay in their basement suite but to visit with them and share our "stories". The suite is very clean and comfortable. Our granddaughters loved the instruments and the swing!
Awesome, quirky little spot with tons of character. For the price, can't really beat it! Super clean and comes complete with a drum set, standing keyboard, and array of other instruments, and a real functioning disco ball (yes please). Hosts could not have been cooler or more laid-back. We threw this trip together at the very last minute and they were more than accommodating, easygoing, and communicative. We will definitely be back!
We had a great time staying at the Monnie's! The place is cozy, comfortable and full of little things that make you want to just stay inside (projector with full sound system set up and several DVD's, drum kits and board games). Dave and Silke are warm, friendly hosts and the neighbourhood is nice too!
Interiors are clean and spacious. We had fresh towels and all the body care products one might reasonable expect to use over a short stay.
Location-wise, this place is close to some nice restaurants/pubs - they're within walking distance so double bonus!
Dave and Silke went above and beyond to make sure we were accommodated. From the speed of their replies, to the small gestures they made us (recommendations, notes, smiles), to the openness of their home. They were in no way intrusive, and are genuine people. Their home was warm and welcoming, and the projection system was a blast (especially since our trip was partially snowed in)!
What a wonderful place to serve as a great landing point for first trip to Portland. The basement apartment is comfortable, warm (even in January!), and family friendly. Very thoughtfully laid out and clean. Thanks for a great visit!
