Some of our trees are lit at night to extend our evenings. Sometimes you catch a glimpse of a doe and her fawns out in the woods.

About Jeanine

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

Why Jeanine chose Portland

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Serene oasis

  • 5 of 5

Serene oasis pretty much sums it up for this beautiful home in a suburb of Portland! In addition to an award-winning tropical garden with a hot tub and fire pit, lovely little forest critters and local birds to watch from the window every morning at the bird feeder outside, the inside of the home is essentially a spread from an upscale "home decor" magazine. With the large window views all around of greenery and northwest forest, this lovely home felt almost like our very own home in the Hawai'i rainforest! Extra bonuses were the quality linens in the bedroom and bath and the same high quality cooking utensils and appliances in the kitchen. We had a warm welcome from Paul and Jeanine upon our arrival, and just hope that they'll have us back again on our next visit...we won't want to stay anywhere else now!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious, comfortable, private and lovely. The jacuzzi is an extra bonus, the garden feels like a resort. The hosts were lovely and accommodated our late arrival.

Shaded oasis

  • 5 of 5

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.

Truly an Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

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!
