We feature a goldfish pond, a 2 Person outdoor jacuzzi and a fire-pit right outside our covered patio door! Inside you will find all the amenities of home: two cozy bedrooms, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, wi-fi and a fireplace.

About Andrea Trautwein

Dennis and I have created an oasis in which you will feel peaceful and relaxed. We are both Massage Therapists and everything here is created to make you feel comfortable and welcome. We both like to travel and want to be on the road a lot in 2017. We enjoy Yoga, the Outdoors, Gardening, Animals, Meditating and love to spend time with our friends and our two Aussie Shephards.

If we are not traveling, we stay either in our RV on the big driveway or in our Portland House. Our massage studio and office are in the remodeled garages and are accessed by separate entrances. We may use these spaces and the half-bath in the laundry room space as well. Of course we are very mindful and respectful of your privacy.

We are always happy to assist you if you have questions. You may even want to schedule a massage with us!

Andrea Trautwein purchased this house in 1995

Why Andrea Trautwein chose Coastal Oregon

Our House is a great place to stay as you are close to Portland, Mt. Hood and the amazing Columbia River Gorge and only an hour away from the beautiful Oregon Coast and the hidden Gems of the Oregon Wine Country.

What makes this house unique

Quiet and friendly. Great Neighborhood. Close to Light Rail Public Transit, which connects you to the Heart of Portland and the Portland International Airport. A place to relax and get away or a base from which to explore NW Oregon.

Dennis and I are Massage Therapists. I meet my massage clients in a separate massage room which is not part of your rental. The massage room shares one of the entrances to the house and we share the bathroom next to the Laundry room. When we are not on an exciting adventure somewhere in the World, we live on the property in our RV or in our Portland house. You can book a Massage with us or see one of the other massage therapists in town. My business hours are limited and won't interfere with your private enjoyment of our home.

Great location and accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Hillsboro Urban Garden Oasis was wonderful! The house was charming and very comfortable. We were able to walk to shops and restaurants on Main Street and also to the train station. This location was a close drive to wine country and taking the train into Portland an added bonus. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

Even good on a rainy day

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and adult daughter stayed a week. It was in October and rainy most of the week so we could not enjoy the absolutely lovely garden but we did very much enjoy the house. The hosts are a pleasure to deal with and very responsive. I can personally attest that Andrea is a terrific massage therapist. We all agreed that we would definitely consider staying there again when we next visit the area.

Cozy Hillsboro home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a very nice stay at this little gem of a house. Price was absolutely right, and we regret that we couldn't spend much time in the delightful back yard, but as we were visiting family in the area, we spend most of the time with them. But so nice to return to a very nice home. The owners are very hospitable, bed very comfortable. I would definitely stay in this VRBO home again.

Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I arrived early from the airport and the owner's were kind enough to meet us there and allow us to store our suitcases although they really weren't quite ready for us. The home is so very comfortable! We had our family including: Mother, brother and wife, niece and husband, sister and boyfriend plus the two of us and we were very happy and comfortable in the living room sharing a bottle of wine before we went out for dinner. The kitchen has EVERYTHING. The bed was comfortable and we appreciated being able to do laundry. And, I haven't even begun to rave about the back yard. We highly recommend this VRBO.
