SELLWOODMANOR - EXQUISITE VICTORIAN RETREAT

Portland House Rental Photos and Description

1 bed/ 1 bath that sleeps up to 5

Come experience a lush landscape retreat at SellwoodManor; an adorable, ultra-clean victorian house located in the heart of the city featuring many original touches. With downtown & OHSU just 10 minutes away, you’ll find the location is ideal for exploring the best of Portland. This LiveLikeItsYours property is located in Sellwood which is one of Portland’s oldest and finest neighborhoods where you’ll find an abundance of shops, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, and trails to explore.

We’ve accentuated the best of this lady by adding touches of contemporary furnishings, antiques, repurposed pieces, many pieces of original artwork, high ceiling and lots of natural light.

Private and modern, this spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bath is airy and perfectly situated in a lush garden setting. The open, 900 square feet of living space offers plenty of storage for your personal belongings and includes a fully equipped kitchen with modern conveniences (dishwasher, garbage disposal, and vented gas range) . You’ll also have full use of the laundry center with washer, dryer, iron & board. As a bonus, we’ve arranged the house to sleep parties up to 6. In addition to a bedroom featuring a luxurious queen bed you’ll find two other sofa-beds (1 living room + 1 bonus room) to accommodate additional guests. The “sun room” is a wonderful place to relax and sleep offering a private space with full size sleeper sofa. We’ve stocked the property with the cook and entertainer in mind and the pantry includes, condiments, tea, oils and all the staples for guest use. Whether you’re going for a full Thanksgiving dinner, a cocktail part, or simple tapas; we have everything you need to entertain up to 10 and seating for 8 at the expandable dining table.

The bathroom is fresh, clean & modern with many original touches including a clawfoot and beautiful fixtures. We provide plenty luxury towels, soap & shampoo/conditioner.

Just an 8 minute drive to the downtown city center, SellwoodManor is located in the idilic Sellwood - Westmoreland neighborhood, on the inner SE side of Portland. This quiet idilic residential area offers a distinct proliferation of food, gorgeous flower gardens and canopied trees lined streets. Reed College is just a stones throw away as are some of the best walking and biking trails in Portland. If biking is your thing, you’ll find access to the Springwater trail (which takes you directly downtown within 10 minutes) is located literally a block from the house.

We offer free wi-fi, a full cable channel line up on a flat screen tv, ipod docking station, and linens fit for royalty. For those of you with little children, we offer a pack n play and highchair for your use.

During fair weather, (May 1st to mid/late October) guests are invited to relax in the backyard garden and barbecue, sip on a beverage or simply enjoy the lush wooded lot with shaded protection from the warmth of summer. A bistro table and full gas bbq grill are available for guest use.

You can rent bicycles at a great local shop just a few blocks away for sightseeing, a ride to parks, the waterfront, or to go shopping at a variety of interesting neighborhood shops.

If you'd like to head downtown, but don't want to drive, bus stops are located in every direction and are just a few blocks from the house and cottage.

We'll do our best to make your stay and your Portland activities as uncomplicated and pleasant as possible.

There is ample street parking. Want a trip through wine country (to the beach, to the mountains) but you are without a car? (website hidden) & Zipcar rentals are accessible within a few blocks and we offer LiveLikeItsYours properties in the best Oregon & Washington locations (Oregon Coast, Willamette Valley, Various options in Portland & Seattle).

Getting around: A bus stop is one block away. Downtown Portland is a ten minute drive, and we are a few minute drive to the OHSU tram. Reed College is only a 5 minute trip. Bike or run the gorgeous waterfront Springwater Corridor to downtown which takes just minutes.

Neighborhood Amenities, all within walking distance:

Seasonal rides at Oaks Park, the country’s oldest continuously active amusement park. Shopping and antiquing on 13th Street, also known as Antique Row. Four coffee shops and two tea shops, including our favorite coffee hangout - Either/Or.

This house is charming, clean, and well set up for a vacation to Portland. The pictures don't show all the attention to detail that David has put into his rental. Our kids got sick during our vacation and the house was cozy and inviting while they recuperated. Would definitely stay again.

We have put an exceptional amount of attention to detail into each of our properties. Look for other LiveLikeItsYours properties in Seattle, the Oregon Coast, Manhattan Beach, Oregon wine country and Portland.

Amazing Portland Sellwood location with easy access to top destinations. Pearl District, NW 23rd, Hawthorne, Alberta, Mississippi, Fremont, Division, and Clinton are all easily accessible. Easy walking access to some of the best grocery, theater, restaurants, bars, shopping, public transportation and gym options Portland has to offer.

Also, let me suggest a great new service (1 way rides & free parking) called www.car2go.com which is an awesome alternative to renting a car (for city use). Signing up gives you access to all the cities they service in the US.

Cute, quiet, cozy

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time visiting Portland, I have to say staying here in this cute house and neighborhood made our experience more authentic and so nice. It was really great to have a cute place to come home to after a long busy day exploring all the awesome things Portland and the beautiful state of Oregon offer. Very VERY cute neighborhood, I highly recommend you stay in Sellwood if you're looking for a small town feel, lots of cute quaint shops, and whats awesome is that downtown Portland is a really close drive even though you feel like you're in a cute small town. Portland is awesome, just what we were hoping for we loved it. The house is in a very quiet location near the end of the street and you'll sometimes hear the faint sound of a train in the distance, really nice and calming. We had a rental car during our stay because we drove outside of Portland and all around, downtown Portland, Mount Hood Timberline Lodge, Columbia River Gorge, Astoria and the coast, Pittock Mansion, Nob Hill, Hawthorne, etc. Sellwood itself is very walkable, you could also bike everywhere if you wanted. Grocery store is really close and so cute, New Seasons grocery, great local foods etc. Only thing we had wished the house had was a fireplace and a little cozier more comfortable couch would have made it awesome, but overall really can't complain. Beautiful design, hardwood floors, art, furniture. Nice small touches of detail give it character. Oh and the sheets were soo soft and comfy, I slept so good, nice towels as well. We loved being in this cute house for our stay in Portland, made our experience really enjoyable. Thank you :)

Owner's Response: I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at SellwoodManor & the NW in general. It's funny you mentioned a fireplace because we actually have one on site and ready to be installed in the coming weeks for this Winter. Note for future guests in mid December and beyond, the house will be even more cozy with the addition of the living room gas fireplace.

Fantastic place and location

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place. Super nice inside, with an excellent location that's walking distance to most things downtown (Seattle Center, Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square - although the latter is a bit far). If you can't walk it, there's excellent public transportation a couple blocks up the road. There are a number of interesting restaurants in the direct vicinity. I have used VRBO a few times in the past (Florida, Oregon, Paris), and this apartment is the best balance of price and amenities I've found. Great job.

A Very Nice and Convenient Stay!

  • 4 of 5
Fantastic location!! Just a couple of blocks to Seattle Center, Sculpture Garden and tons of local restaurants. The free Bus 99 takes you very quickly to the downtown hot spots. (The free OneBusAway app was handy on the iPhone!)

The amenities are great! We loved the kitchen and with small neighborhood markets on most nearby street corners, it was pretty nifty to grab a few groceries and heat up our coffee, snacks or meals as needed.

Although this loft is equipped to sleep 4, I think a party of 2 will find the sleeping arrangements more comfortable. We tossed the kids onto the upstairs bed while the hubs and I slept downstairs. The futon couch unfolds just fine and I would have most likely found it more comfortable to sleep upon if I used the mattress pad, but I didn't want to taxi the pad up and down the upstairs twice daily. That's just me.

The floor-to-ceiling windows provide plenty of natural light but don't diffuse the street noise. It was pretty easy to ignore the vehicle traffic sounds through most of the night but on occasions we'd be rumbled by a motorcycle or other loud vehicle passing through. We typically keep ear plugs in our travel gear but noticed a small inventory available in one of the bathroom drawers for guests to use if needed.

The basement garage is clean and well lit and the parking space can accommodate a small car easily.

The free WiFi was a great use and worked very well.

Kudos to Dave for great customer service! He was very accessible and answered my questions quickly.

15 minutes to Pike St, 2-minutes to the water. Food and entertainment everywhere. Public transportation is a block away which makes exploring Seattle extremely easy. Great location and extremely comfortable.

LOVE this loft!

  • 5 of 5
This loft had all the comforts of home, in addition to its location. Perfect place, walkable everywhere!! My husband, 6year old son, and I stayed here for a weekend. Tastefully modern, cool art work, just an amazing place to stay. I would highly recommend to family and friends if they ever took a trip up. We did have to stock up on our own tissue paper, but that was nothing!
