The Space

Nestled off of one of Sellwood's best streets, this detached guest house features all of the comforts of home. Plenty of tree cover provides nice shade and privacy at the rear of a property.

You can get to nearly anything you need with a 5-10 minute walk.

Sellwood Pool - 1 block
Sellwood Park - 1 block
Bus Stops - 5 blocks
Springwater Trail head - 3 blocks
Oaks Park Amusement - 5 blocks
Sellwood Food Carts (Sushi, Mexican, Thai) - 5 blocks
Sellwood Library, Blue Kangaroo Coffee, Willamette River, New Seasons Market, yoga, bike shops, great Italian, Greek, Japanese and Mexican food a short walk away.

You get the picture - lots of good stuff! Sellwood is consistently named in Portland's "Best Neighborhood" lists for its walkability and character.

Cork floors in main, travertine in the bathroom. New IKEA dark brown cabinetry and countertops. New refrigerator, microwave and glass top stove. If you are in need any other cooking utensils that are not supplied, you are probably a chef that needs to speak with the hostess (and she can provide it for you!).

The "American Sleeper" couch converts into a bed. This is the most comfortable fold out bed in the market. It has a "platform design" (no metal bars). We swear by this bed as we purchased one for our own home several years ago and use it all summer when it is too hot upstairs. Try an internet search or read our guest comments if there are concerns. High thread count sheets and blankets are included.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower with IKEA cabinets, wall heater and travertine floors. We provide soap, shampoo and high quality towels.

A salvaged wood beam runs the top of the roof, allowing for a spacious loft feel. The windows are double paned and the walls/ceiling are fully insulated. There is an electric heater with a thermostat in the main area.

We have a wall mounted 40" Philips TV with DirectTV cable. Internet with WIFI access by Comcast. Clock radio with iPhone charger/connector. Good cell phone signal. Bus service 5 blocks away and a quick (mostly downhill) entrance to the Springwater Bike Trail. Summer renters: We provide a family pool pass for use of the Sellwood pool!

  • Gina and Andy's Guest House was indeed Cozy and comfortable. It made a great home base for exploring the Sellwood neighborhood and was an easy drive from the rest of Portland (good restaurants within walking distance). The Kitchen is full sized and very well equipped. We both felt the sleeper was comfortable. Gina and Andy were good hosts, asking if we needed anything, but allowed us our privacy. We had a very good overall experience and would definitely stay again. Thank you so much Gina and Andy.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Andy & Gina's cozy Sellwood Guest House. This is the perfect place for couples as it is a "mini-house" complete with kitchen & bath, all the luxuries of home.
    We ended up walking about 5 miles a day exploring the fabulous Sellwood-Moreland Neighborhood. We were close to our son who is attending Lewis & Clark so a great place for parents to rent for visits. Gina & Andy are very hospitable and go above and beyond!

  • We had a lovely week at Andy and Gina's. The house is close to lovely Sellwod Park and Oak Bottom. The studio is comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen is great. I can't wait to return!

  • This is such a delightful guest hose. It is very well furnished, great finishings. That pull out bed is the most comfortable pull out bed I've ever slept on! Delicious coffee, and love the access to street parking and restaurants/bars within walking distance. Gina/Andy were also very communicative and always offering help! Would definitely stay here again.

  • Cottage is fully equipped. Bed is just as advertised...A-1. Easy to be comfortable in this cute little find. Sofa as a sofa is comfy and kitchen, TV, kitchen table, bathroom are all equipped with things you would find at home...towels (nicer than ours), coffee maker (nicer than ours), shower (nicer than ours), you get the drift. The n'hood is wonderful because we walked everywhere and loved the bike path/trail for morning walks. Great food carts, cafe's, delicious dining. We loved the sounds coming from the pool at the Sellwood Park of the kids swimming late in the afternoon. If you don't like a child-friendly 'hood, this isn't for you. Gina and Andy were great hosts in that they wanted to please but gave us our space, even in their own backyard. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

  • Could not be happier with our stay. It was beautiful and in a great location. Gina and Andy are great hosts.

  • My husband and I had an excellent stay at the Kaplan's cute and cozy guest house! The neighborhood is really cute and we enjoyed renting bikes, very close by and eating at the local spots they recommended. Central Bakery was unbelievable! I'm just glad it's not 3 blocks from my house or I'd be in serious trouble!! I found the bed to be a bit hard for my 54 year old body that gets stiff easily, but if I were 20 or 30 it wouldn't have bothered me. Gina and Andy have done a great job decorating and remodeling and we had a great time there. I highly recommend this place! Thanks for letting us stay!

  • We had a great time at Gina and Andy's guest house. It was very comfortable and clean, with everything we needed to enjoy our stay.Their location is convenient for walking around Sellwood's parks and cute little shops. Plenty of places close by to eat or drink.
    Andy and Gina are very friendly and welcoming, making us feel like friends the moment we met.
    Sellwood is a very Beautiful place to visit, and their guest house and location was perfect.

About
We love Portland and our Sellwood neighborhood. We met at a party in 1993, started dating in 2000 and married in 2004. Gina moved into the house after the wedding and has endured many construction projects! When joined airbnb in 2012 and wondered "Why would people want to stay here?" We've rented to parents helping their kids move from college, grandparents visiting grandkids, foodies, ferry boat captains and others... It's been a lot of fun and really gratifying when people ask if they can move in permanently! Our work weeks are spent in high tech and healthcare. We are the parents of a Schipperke named Chava. She is very friendly and loves our visitors. Our favorite travel destination is Hawaii and anywhere our family lives. Season ticket holders to Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns soccer teams!
