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 2014. We enjoy Yoga, the Outdoors, Gardening, Animals, Meditating and love to spend time with our two Aussie Shephards & our Friends.

If we are not traveling, we stay 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, an hour away from 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.

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.

Georgeous Garden

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend six weeks in this delightful home. Indeed, it felt like home – very cozy. The kitchen is a serious cooking kitchen and we enjoyed taking most of our meals outside in the gorgeous garden. The pictures don’t do justice to the garden! There were always several flowers blooming and the owners generously shared the many delicious fruits, herbs, vegetables and, of course, the freshly laid eggs. An added bonus is the short walk to the MAX transit line. We were able to explore Portland while staying in a gorgeous garden. We’re looking forward to our return visit.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The owners bent over backwards to make our stay more comfortable. We needed a place while we waited for our home to close escrow. It took 6 weeks, First night, oh no a pond, we have a Lab, they came by the next day and put up a fence how awesome is that. Only place that would welcome 2 big dogs and engaged them every time they came by. They have chickens, fresh eggs when they are laying, we had one breakfast, best tasting eggs this city girl has ever eaten. I would like to think we made some new friends. We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you so much for making our move to Oregon so much easier, Jackson and Sadie thank you too!

Alaska guests!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 11 days in this cute little house, which was a wonderful location for us, as our daughter & grandson lived 2 miles away. It is in a lovely, quiet, safe area, nice for walks, close to grocery stores & restaurants. We would have loved to see the garden in summer, as could tell how nice it would be. The house was cozy, clean & everything we needed for cooking was provided. We will try to stay again. The owners were very friendly & helpful.

My Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house was as expected based on description and pictures. It was just what I needed as I was in the area to visit family and with the house they could stop by and see me. The area was quite so resting was great and the gardens were nice to walk around.

The owners are great they friendly and made sure we knew where to find everything.

I would stay here again.

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.
