COZY 2BR SPECIAL RATE; WOODS, SW HILLS, CLOSE CITY/ZOO; PETS OK

Portland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Big Living/Dining Area, Deck, 2 BR's, ea. w/ Bath, laundry, Full Kitchen

CREATIVE RENTAL OPPORTUNITY IN SW HILLS

We are very sorry but, unfortunately, can no longer accept pets, (due to serious damage by previous renters' dogs).

Absolutely NON-SMOKING,

Priority given to rentals of 4 weeks or longer

Our three level, VERY LIVED IN, vintage home is in a safe, lovely, quiet, woodsy, hilly and well established SW Hills neighborhood. Guest quarters at the top level, are directly accessible from the driveway. You could also use a small office, with separate entrance on lower level, while renting for 4+ months.

TWO BEDROOMS, (one king with 'Sleep Number mattress' and a queen with TempurPedic mattress), TWO BATHS (stocked with shampoo, etc.,) DINING AREA/LIVING ROOM with fireplace, FULL KITCHEN, (pots, pans, spices,etc), small private deck, 1 car parking in driveway. Flatscreen TV's are in the master bedroom (32') and living room (50'). They are attached to BluRay/DVD players. Deck has a barbeque & privacy.

Also available

2nd living room with keyboard, exercise equipment, large library, CD music collection (mostly classical), games, MASSAGE CHAIR, futon, light boxes for gray days, all on the 2nd level. Laundry is on the main level.

When we are home, we stay in a small apartment on the 2nd level under the garage, and use the four offices on the bottom level. The apartment and the offices have separate entrances.

Our home is informal, most everything is 30+yrs old. Our many adult children describe it as 'unfashionable and for sure not modern, but it's happy, warm, comfortable, relaxed, private, and peaceful.'

EXCELLENT LOCATION:

5-10 min walk to the Arboretum with miles of beautiful trails, the Oregon Zoo, Children's Museum, World Forestry Center, the MAX (light rail with fast access to the city - 15 minutes to downtown),15 min. walk to Japanese Garden and Rose Garden.

IN ONE OF THE BEST SCHOOL DISTRICTS: CHAPMAN, WEST SYLVAN, LINCOLN

15 min DRIVE to OSHU, 20 min to LEWIS AND CLARK COLLEGE, 15 min to NIKE, 8-10 min to DOWNTOWN (with Pioneer Place mall, cinemas, restaurants, etc.), via Hwy 26 (or alternative routes for better access during rush hours). If you are interested, we'll send more pictures.

Would be ideal for an older couple/family coming from far away who would need nothing but their personal belongings, who love to WALK, and enjoy being close to NATURE and the CITY. A car is probably needed unless you love LONG walks.

We look forward to meeting you.

We are a happy, active, liberal, elderly Quaker couple who have raised many children….. (some homemade, some adopted, some foster and some who just never left), from many different cultures. We also spent many years taking care of our elders, raising litters of puppies and now, for the first time, are free to travel. Part of the year we live in our other home in Ajijic Mexico which is for rent during July, Aug. Sept and Oct.

We love to kayak, sail, hike, bike (we are the ones whom you may see speeding on our 3-wheel recumbent bikes on the many Portland bike paths), camp (for many years in an old VW camper and now in a Sprinter camper), folk dance. We enjoy concerts (esp. classical), thought-provoking movies, plays, reading, volunteering, (esp. when we are in Mexico), and spending time with our grown children, grand-children and friends.

We are very interested in other cultures, passionate about learning, growing and understanding others, esp those who are different from us. We are grateful that all of our kids have all turned out to be happy, productive, interesting people, each in their own way, making a difference in this complicated world of ours.

We are working to unclutter our home, simplify our lives, live in the moment and get to know even more people from different cultures.

In Nonnie's earlier life she worked at Phillips Academy, in Andover, Mass., at the Dept.of Social Services in Boston and at the Farm and Wilderness Camps, a Quaker camp in Vermont. She has been for the past 30yrs, a family coach with an office under our home.

Bruce spent time as a photographer in Vietnam, traveled widely and settled on the West Coast. After a career as a supervisor of underwriting for life and health carriers, he took up data processing and became a systems analyst. He is currently retired and working at various volunteer projects. He speaks French fluently and a little of many other languages.

Nonnie Wilson and Bruce Weersing purchased this apartment in 1983

It is in mature woods, close to the Arbo' with beautiful hiking trails, Zoo, Children's Museum, Light Rail (MAX), Rose gardens, Japanese garden, excellent school district, safe, lots of space, peaceful and quiet, and only 8 to 15 min. to downtown Portland, where there are concerts, movies, wonderful places to eat, plays, bike paths, rivers to kayak and sail, shop and lots of interesting people.

We chose this home because we had many kids at the time and the fact it was in the woods and yet close to downtown, parks and schools.

GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We went to Portland for my birthday, we wanted to stay somewhere close to the city but still homey. The place was 5 minutes from the city but it felt like we were in the woods. The place was very clean and the owners were very nice and helpful. I would highly recommend staying here.

GREAT HOME AND SEMI SECLUDED

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home nestled in hills west of Portland and just a hop, skip and walk from Arboretum, then on toward Zoo and Washington Park. 2 bedrooms and baths make it a great family friendly home. Kitchen is stocked with lots of herbs and enough cooking pots and pans for 2 kitchens!
Wifi and 2 tv's, deck fireplace with stocked wood and grill. All comforts available.
Only thing I would add is a general instruction sheet on how to use the DVD player as I was not able to play some of the great DVD's supplied.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place! It was perfect for us. The house was cozy and well supplied for all our needs. The best part was the location: Nestled in the forest on the side of the mountain and only 10 minutes from downtown. I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to spend some time in Portland.

Boutiques, micro-breweries and restaurants abound in the Pearl and 23rd Avenue districts, about 20 min. away by bus or 10 min. by car. The Hawthorne and Mississippi districts are twice as far away, offering many of the same attractions, in somewhat funkier or more Bohemian settings.
