CHARMING GARDEN COURT JUST OFF HAWTHORNE!!

Portland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Charming Mediterranean garden court apartments in prime close-in SE Portland location. Your own 1920's flat in the city. This is one of the nicest garden courts in SE and is not your average rental.

The unit is a full sized 1 bedroom and an end unit that has been restored, remodeled, and updated with very high quality furniture and furnishings. It's all on one level so there is no noise from above and it has its own front and back door. The flat has the original hardwood floors, doors and millwork along with very nice light from new windows.

The courtyard out back and the garden setting up the front, along with the prime end location, gives it a feeling of a small cottage in the city and not at all like a condo, hotel, or inner building apartment.

The living room has a classic feel with chase lounge and soft leather chair facing a solid mocha bamboo bookshelf that houses a new LED TV, speakers, wi-fi, and a nice selection of books and art. There is nice light from windows that look out over a garden to the west and downtown.

The kitchen has been upgraded with paper-stone countertops, tin backsplash, new appliances, a composite sink, and a new Grohe faucet. Inside the cupboards and drawers you’ll find new Noritake dinnerware, OXO utensils, quality knives, sturdy water & wine glasses, Tupperware, cookie sheet, cutting board, French press, salad spinner and colander. For cooking there is a quality All-Clad pan set, spice rack, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar, etc.

From the back of the kitchen there's a convenient backdoor that leads onto a private enclosed porch with access out a screen door and down a few steps to the inner garden courtyard and across to the separate laundry room.

The bathroom is more original and cute and also works having been updated with a pedestal sink, new toilet, nice fixtures, and a tub.

The bedroom is cozy and quiet with the new windows onto the courtyard, pergola, & water feature. The queen bed fame is cherry made in southern Oregon along with a locally made latex & wool mattress and 400+ thread count cotton sheets.

Parking is on street but is usually no problem with spots often within 25-75' of the front door.

Minimum stay required can vary due to how the calendar is filled at the time. We do our best to accommodate short stays but it's not always possible.

I do have one other rental that is pet friendly but that flat does have a longer stay required as well as a pet deposit.

Payments accepted are credit card (via Paypal) or by personal check.

Please email with other questions :-) Thx for looking...

An excellent apartment for 2; everything you need is there. Many nice touches like the spice rack, coffee filters and more. Very quiet and a super location; park the car and take a walk you will be pleasantly surprised. Both Jim and Clare were easy to connect with and super to deal with. We will return for sure. Many thanks.

Excellent location and retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our dog and I stayed for 6 nights at the apartment. The complex is charming and well done. Furnishings are very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. There are so many great neighborhoods to just wander around and plenty of restaurants for terrific food. We really enjoyed the back courtyard. We brought dinners home to eat while relaxing in the quiet courtyard with a bottle of wine. We also used the BBQ a few times for some easy meals. Clare was great at showing us around the apartment and giving us plenty of ideas on places to go, activities to see and restaurants to try. We tried some different restaurants on this trip including the Kala Noodle and Grill and Nuestra Cocina - they were both excellent! We would be happy to return and spend some more time in this neighborhood and at Jim's apartment, hope we get the chance soon.

This is a fabulous apartment. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and welcoming. The street parking is free and convenient and meant we could bring our bikes with us, leave the car and cycle everywhere! Really can't wait to come back.

Perfect Location!!!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is a great place to stay. Catch the bus at the end of the block and you are in downtown Portland. Or stroll through the neighborhood and enjoy coffee and great bakeries. Just a block from a fantastic Safeway. Apartment is very clean and spacious for two people. Owner is extremely helpful. We were able to borrow very nice bikes to take advantage of the bike trails. We hope to stay here again in the future.

Great Location...Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time staying at one of Jim's beautifully and comfortably appointed units. We stayed in #1403 this time around and in #1407 last year. Both were super clean! #1407 is a garden unit and we just loved sitting out there with our coffee in the morning and sleeping at night to the tranquil sound of the courtyard water feature.

You can't beat the location. It's quiet, close to downtown and so many good restaurants in the area to mention. The closest were Jam (great breakfast) and Grand Central Bakery (amazing sandwiches), both recommended by Jim, who by the way always makes time to be sure you have everything you need. We can't wait til next year to go back. Thanks Jim!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here while visiting my brother who lives nearby. This place was very conveniently located to restaurants and grocery stores so you could easily get by without a car. Go to Ken's Artisan pizza, delicious. It is close to the bus line to get all over the city. There was a great farmers market stand around the corner too. It is a quiet neighborhood. If you do have a car parking can be difficult to find on the street if you return after 6PM. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need. The extensive spice rack was a nice bonus since we cooked most of our meals there. The outside courtyard is a nice place to sit and there is a BBQ grill to use. We stayed during a particularly hot weather week and it was comfortable, there is no air conditioning. Coming from Chicago we are used to hot and humid in the summer. The owner was prompt in answering all of our questions and very easy to work with. Check in and check out were easy. The SE section of Portland is a great place to walk around and explore and this is the place to stay if you want to do that.
