Portland Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7)

This charming bungalow has everything you need for your stay in Portland. Built in 1929, it features 2 true bedrooms, stocked kitchen (with the basics), dining room, living room and bathroom. Laundry facilities are in the basement along with a desk, additional sitting area and futon. Only 2 blocks to a grocery store, bank, coffee shop and more, this house is part of a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. It is the ideal accommodation for the traveler who wants to be close to the action, but not stay in the middle of it.

I love this particular neighborhood because it is a self-contained neighborhood - everything you need is within a 10 block walking radius, yet it is only a 10 minute drive or 20 minute bike ride to downtown. There are many unique restaurants, ranging from casual dining to upscale and the neighborhood is full of mom and pop shops. The proximity to nature is also a bonus. Several times a week, I walk my dog through the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge and down to the river to play fetch and frolic on the sand. It's not unusual to see a bald eagle on the way and there is fabulous bird watching nearby.

For your convenience, there is wireless Internet at the house as well as an on-site computer for those of you who want to leave yours at home. Some ideas and activities for you to think about:

Summer activities: Sellwood pool, Oaks Bottom Amusement Park, Westmoreland Farmer's Market, Concerts in the Park, Movies in the Park, music festivals, and more!

Year Round Portland Activities: First Thursday in the Pearl, Last Thursday on Alberta, OMSI, Portland Art Museum, Portland Center State, Artist Repertory Theater, biking down the Springwater Trail, shopping on Hawthorne Street and Sellwood's Antique Row, brewer festivals, and lots more!

About The Owner

I moved to Portland in 2005 after living in San Francisco for nearly 10 years. I was drawn to Portland because it has the amenities of a big city, but feels like a small town. It has easy access to mountains as well as to beaches on the coast. (It is only about a 90 minute drive to either.)

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2005

Why The Owner chose Portland

I love this particular neighborhood because it is a self-contained neighborhood - everything you need is within a 10 block walking radius, yet it is only a 10 minute drive or 20 minute bike ride to downtown. There are many unique restaurants, ranging from casual dining to upscale and the neighborhood is full of mom and pop shops. The proximity to nature is also a bonus. Several times a week, I walk my dog through the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge and down to the river to play fetch and frolic on the sand. It's not unusual to see a bald eagle and there is fabulous bird watching nearby. This house was my primary residence for many years and in 2009, I started renting the house while I was out of town so that other people could enjoy it. Starting in 2014, I now rent the house full time - I truly enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to our wonderful neighborhood.

What makes this bungalow unique

When at the Westmoreland Vacation Home, you will appreciate the charm of yesteryear. I have done my best to restore and keep original features intact such as the picture moldings, glass doorknobs, hardwood floors, French doors, and fun kitchen features like tile work, a flour bin and cabinets and shelving originally built to cool pies and baked goods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were so glad we rented your house. It's not often that one finds a quiet neighborhood so close to urban amenities: grocery store, parks, both homey and upscale restaurants, shops, even a wildlife refuge (that scored points with my biologist husband) all within walking distance. Most days, we left our car parked in the driveway and easily walked anywhere we wanted to go. And with bus stops close by, it would have been a cinch to venture farther afield - to Powell's Books or the Pearl District, for instance - too.



Your house is charming; so tastefully renovated and full of character. We've probably stayed in a dozen rental homes, and yours by far had the best-equipped kitchen. I thought I'd have to borrow serving dishes for our Thanksgiving meal, but you had plenty. The beds were ultra comfortable. There was plenty of closet space and drawer space for our things. It was nice you had books available on exploring Portland, maps, and your own restaurant recommendations. We loved the last house we stayed in in Portland, but I think we enjoyed your home even more

We spent a wonderful month in this lovely home in the Sellwood/Moreland area!

  • 5 of 5
This location cannot be beat, with restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, a movie theater, a park, a library and so much more. We highly recommend Fat Albert's and Renee's Cafe for breakfast. We also enjoyed dinner at the Oaks Bottom Pub and Cha Cha Cha. It was a wonderful area to walk around and check out the architectural aspects of the homes. Our son and family live in Portland so we were able to spend some quality time with them and be there for our granddaughter's first birthday.

The bungalow is older, but beautifully restored in the original style. The rooms are painted with beautiful, soothing colors and the details such as pictures and decorations are perfectly suited for the house. The beds are wonderful, which is not always the case in a rental home. I have back problems and was nervous about a month in another bed but the mattress was perfect and I didn't have any problems with my back at all. Our daughter and two grandchildren came for a visit and our grandson had a ball in his "man cave" downstairs, complete with bunk beds, futon and a TV. The basement is large and friendly, with the one bedroom and another large area where the washer and dryer are and also a grouping of furniture. I could see spending time down there in the summer, where it would be nice and cool. There is a cute little backyard, with lawn and a patio. Unfortunately, it rained so much while we were there that we weren't able to take advantage of it. It would be perfect for the warmer months though. As with any older home, there are some quirks like sticking doors and creaking floors but it just all added to the charm of the place. Thank you Ilyse for being so responsive to any questions we had. We would rent your home again in a heartbeat!

Perfect family get away

  • 5 of 5
We spent a long weekend here and had the best time. I have 2 sons (3 years and 1 year) and it accommodated us perfectly. It was a great location - walking distance to anything we could have wanted. We ended up spending a lot more time here than we had planned, because we felt so comfortable right away.

nice place

  • 4 of 5
The house was nice, the bathroom lock was a little tricky. The garbage was also quite confusing, coming from a place that doesn't recycle anything. Also thought the cleaning fee was a bit much for how much we had to do ourselves. Also the prices were confusing compared to what was advertised. The house was in a great neighborhood though, great food and shops and Ilyse was really great to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review! I apologize that the vrbo.com automated fees were not calculating correctly. I am glad I use a separate contract prior to booking so that you were clear about costs prior to payment! I will also make sure that the instructions are clear for how to leave the house - it is standard for most rentals that linens are washed, trash taken out and dishes cleaned prior to checking out. When more bedrooms in the house are utilized, it is more work for the cleaning staff and my priority is that the house is meticulously clean for each new guest. When you stay next time, I am always available to help explain how something works or repair anything that is broken—so just give me a call or email and I will get right on it!

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful time in this house. The location is prime with restaurants, grocery store, post office, coffee shops, hardware store and a park all within walking distance and downtown Portland @ 10 minutes away. Ilyse couldn't have been more attentive and the neighborhood is charming. My son and family live nearby so it couldn't be better. I hope to go back!

Cozy Home. Perfect for our visit.

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed staying in this home. Great space for our group. Comfortable beds. My granddaughter loved the bunk bed down stairs. Very neat and clean. Everything we needed was there. We enjoyed the outdoor space in the back yard. Rosebushes were in full bloom. This home is just around the corner from the grocery store and many shops and resturants. We will try to stay here again on our next visit. Thanks Ilyse for a nice stay.

Charming Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect for our outings. The house is updated on the inside with warm and inviting colors. The house is furnished and stocked with everything you could need. We wish we had the time to stay for a week or more at this one location. Thanks for opening your home to us!

The Westmoreland/Sellwood neighborhood has become increasingly popular in the past few years - others have finally discovered our hideaway! We have great restaurants, shops, farmer's market and are only steps away from the river and the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge which is known for birdwatching.
