We are an active couple that loves everything Oregon! We hike to dozens of amazing waterfalls and parks, ski in the winter on Mt. Hood and Mt. Bachlor, take our boat out on the Willamette and Columbia rivers in the summer, visit interesting restaurants, wineries and breweries of Portland or the Willamette Valley and visit the beautiful Oregon coast, often!
Jeanine purchased this house in 2002
We love our location, nestled on a hillside on Bull Mountain that is located close to access downtown but far enough to feel like you are in the mountains. The forest behind us and mature trees in our yard offer privacy but still offers an expansive patio area to bask in the sun. During the winter you can sit in the hot tub and view the twinkling lights through the trees or watch the full moon rising. Our home is located in a newer but established neighborhood with wide streets and sidewalks. Perfect for a morning or evening walk. Or just down the street is Summerlake park where we take our evening walks. We have many fantastic parks for hiking. Forest Park is the largest in-city park Just a short drive we have easy access to the Nike world campus and the silicon forest, home of many well known high-tech companies.
Shuttles are available nearby to Mt. Hood ski areas in the winter and spring. We are literally, right down the street and around the corner from gourmet groceries and restaurants. New Seasons Market an fantastic grocery/deli is one of our favorite stops for a quick bite to eat. They even offer wine and beer tasting. An upscale shopping mall, is just a 10 minute drive, which includes Nordstroms and Macys. Just down the hill is Cinetopia, a plush, living room style theater with restaurant and wine bar.There's a new, amazing 'Big Al's sports center for family entertainment that includes a bowling alley. Several fitness centers, 24 hour fitness is a mile away, indoor aquatic center, 1 1/2 miles away. Tennis courts one mile, Bookstores, Starbucks and McMenamins brew pubs. Progress Ridge TownSquare is a two minute drive from our home. Everything you need is nearby. Summerlake is a great park in Tigard to take a morning or evening stroll.
This home was well equipped inside and out. The setting among the trees and beautiful landscaping is very restful and cool during the warmth of summer.
We would spend longer on our next visit.
Jeanine and Paul's Tropical Oasis was the perfect getaway for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary! The backyard was so beautiful with the hot tub and fire feature. Their home is perfectly located--about 20 minutes from downtown Portland, an hour from Multnomah Falls, an hour and a half from Mt. Hood, and an hour and a half from Cannon Beach. We found ourselves able to fit all of these destinations into our four night stay, and always looked forward to our evenings because we knew we had a relaxing place to come home to after days filled with adventuring.
The unit itself had everything you could possibly need to cook a nice meal. The washer and dryer were so convenient, along with all the other personal touches that made the place feel like a home. Jeanine and Paul respected our privacy, and our stay truly felt like we were in our own little world with how separate the unit is from the rest of the house. We would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend this place if you're staying in the Portland area!
......all the reviews are accurate. This property is 5 stars all around. And it won't matter if it rains or the sun blazes.......
This was my fourth time to stay at Jeanine and Paul's Unit and every time it's the same (Great). I hope I'll be able to stay here every time I'm in town, it's my favorite place. It really is like a Tropical Paradise. Thanks again Jeanine and Paul.
A true Oasis from which to explore Portland, wine country and surrounding area. A little slice of heaven! The lush greenery of the area surrounds this yard. Spacious, private, gorgeous, welcoming yard with hot tub, fire pit, water feature, beautifully lit at night. Unit is spotlessly clean, fresh and quiet, decorated in calm, soft colors, with dimmer switches and beautiful new surfaces, and appliances. Many windows looking out to yard add to the ambiance. A Gem! Owners are professional and kind, and respectful of your privacy. Excellent, prompt communication throughout. I look forward to returning!
This home was so awesome!!! I can not say enough good things about.. I absolutely enjoyed every minute, I stayed here for 1 month, the property is beautiful, it is like living in the forest. you will see deer, birds right outside your window, squirrels & chipmunks, I was in awe. It was hard to leave for the day, due to all the windows you are mesmerized by the beautiful forest like view, it really is an amazing place, Jeanine did such a fabulous job on the design and decoration of this apartment, not leaving anything out for your comfort.
The home is beautifully decorated, and spotless, very well maintained, although you are at the bottom level of owners home, you will certainly have your privacy. The paradise is all yours!
You will NEVER be bothered. If the jacuzzi needs to be checked, or the bird feeder needs refilling Jeanine will always call first before coming down. In fact you will most likely NEVER see the Jeanine or Paul. If privacy is what you are looking for.(although if you have any questions they are only a phone call away, or very close by to attend to your needs or questions) The location worked out so well for me, as my daughter & granddaughter lived close by. You are in a beautiful safe neighborhood, up on a hill with awesome shopping, and loads of eating places nearby. Freeways are close. Downtown Portland close, I do recommended a car, although I did see bus stops a couple blocks down the hill. Oh and did I tell you about the walking trails close by? I found just a couple blocks away a hidden walking trail, again your own little forest with trails. Oh yes and I can't forget to mention Summerlake Park a beautiful park just down the street, you can walk or drive, there are beautiful walking trail around a lake, 2 playgrounds for children, which is now my granddaughters favorite park. there is a bowling alley, Ceramic Cafe, Library, Coffee house, restaurants, there is so much close by I could go on & on....It really was a perfect location for me. I will definitely be back!!! Thank you Jeanine & Paul looking forward to returning soon....:)
