We have a very large house in the close-in Southeast area of Westmoreland/Sellwood. We originally created the separate"studio" unit eight years ago on our second floor in case either of our two sons wanted to live here while they went to college locally. Well, our oldest decided to go out of state, so we have now opted to share this space with visitors. Only one door connects the studio with the rest of the house and we lock it and block it off with two feet of insulation to give visitors privacy.
Second floor one bedroom with separate entrance, its own new full kitchen and bathroom, lots of windows, skylights, laundry, balcony, and sun room. Popular Westmoreland/Sellwood area. Lots of stores, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, a 1-screen movie theater, grocery store and a 1910 amusement park within walking distance. Reed College a short walk. County golf course four blocks away (although we do not have clubs). Relax in the sun room and look at the tree tops or walkers/runners as they go by. LED TV, blu-ray player and wireless internet.
19 Bus stops right across the street for a 20-minute ride downtown.
There is traffic on our street, but it dies down in the evening and there's very little at night.
There is at least one parking spot right in front of our house that is almost always open, so parking is not a problem. Also, access to the Springwater corridor, which is a great paved bike path is less than 1 mile from our house. You can take it downtown along the river (northwest) or out to Gresham (East). Look it up on the internet and you can find out more about it. We have a walkability score of 88 and a Street Smart Walk Score of 97!
In a pinch, we could accommodate a third person. Send us a note.
NEW - we now have bicycles available. They are not high-end bikes, but they'll get you around. If you want better ones, there is a bike store nearby that rents bikes.
We have cats but we've kept them out of the studio.

My father stayed here for a month to visit with his adult children and his grandchildren. He loved the place. It is impeccably clean, tastefully decorated with high end items, and generously and thoughtfully stocked. He has already asked Scott about wanting to stay there next February. I will definitely recommend this place to others visiting us from out of town.
The apartment was flawless, as was the customer service. I will be back, hopefully with spouse in tow for more time here.
Clean, bright apartment with a kitchen nearly as well stocked as my home. Sun room is a sweet retreat. This is more than a studio apartment.
Prospective guests should be aware that there is a flight of stairs that must be climbed to reach the accommodations. Probably mentioned in the listing somewhere.
Beautiful space - had a wonderful stay. Very well appointed - Scott thought of everything a traveler would need or want. House is in a nice, quiet neighborhood very close-in to downtown and convenient to all other points in Portland and beyond.
I didn't have a chance to meet Scott in person during my stay but he was very good about keeping in touch via email and text to make sure everything was okay.
Definitely would recommend this as an option if you're coming to Portland and would stay here again.
This is a great spot in the Sellwood neighborhood. Centrally located, you can walk every where. The apartment is as advertised, with full kitchen, washer/dryer, full bath and a comfortable bed. There is a great sun room/reading room and a cool back deck. Parking is in front of the house. Street noise off Bybee may require ear plugs, but with such a great location, this is a small issue. Scott was very helpful in pointing out many attributes in the apartment. This is a great place and a great value.
Spacious, private studio. Very clean and welcoming. Modern bathroom and well-stocked kitchen. Easy access to downtown as well as great neighborhood dining. Walkable neighborhood. Would definitely return here and recommend to friends.
Wonderful, private apartment in a great location. It's now our first choice for Portland visits.
We loved the apt and Scott was a very nice person and very
easy to talk to. It was close to places we needed to go and
found it very comfortable. We would stay again when in the
We stayed here for a second time and it was just as great as last time. These guys are the perfect hosts; they anticipate anything you might possibly need and provide it for you. We've been here in the warm days of summer and the chili days of late fall...the room is comfortable no matter the season. And you're within walking distance of lots of great shops, restaurants, and even a movie theatre. If you're coming to Portland, I highly recommend staying here.
The apartment was everything we could have hoped for - beautiful, comfortable, spotless, and stocked with every amenity you could imagine from food, to toiletries,to travel (email hidden)ere was a large DVD and CD collection and many books available to read. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen well appointed with everything you might need and it was located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. Scott has really thought of it all. We can't wait to come back!
The Airbnb pictures for Scott's studio do not do it justice. It's much larger than I expected, super clean, very well appointed, private and well stocked. Scott met us when we arrived, walked us through the studio and we didn't see him or anyone else again! The neighborhood is great and there are some fabulous shops and restaurants a few blocks away. We will definitely stay here again if we see ourselves back in Portland.
