About the property

This 900+ sf private apartment has a large sitting area, bedroom, bathroom with shower and kitchenette. It is a daylight basement but the ceilings are higher than 8 feet and it feels very spacious while also being welcoming & cozy. I chose high quality furniture and provide 55" and 48" new LED TVs with full cable/DVR plus a pillow top memory foam mattress to ensure that the apartment provides a very comfortable stay. This is intended to be a quiet get away from the busy ness of inner Portland but it is only 10 minutes from downtown by car/7 blocks from a MAX station. The good sized backyard and porch are also open for you to sit outside if you like.

This private downstairs unit is larger than my other apartment, has ceilings higher than 8 feet and an egress window in the bedroom for extra light. I bought a good bedframe and a queen memory foam mattress with pillow top that the guests seem to love. High quality furniture and some plants and color also add charm. The sitting room is approximately 400 sf, the bedroom is close to 250 and there is a private kitchenette with washer and dryer in the unit as well, plus a full bathroom with shower.

The modern, very comfortable Danish memory foam couch and matching love seat will be great for watching TV with full cable including HBO, Showtime, OnDemand everything, etc. I also hung some of my art/photographs on the wall to liven the space up and added a vintage radio/record/TV unit in the apartment which is functional (except for the TV, which won't receive a signal), and lots of fun to play with.

Guests are welcome to sit in my backyard and enjoy the sun or the large porch, and the house is next to Sellwood in Ardenwald, which is a 10 minute drive from downtown or inner se, and only 7 blocks from the MAX public lightrail, which takes you downtown in approximately 20 minutes.

About The Owner

I am a lifelong Portland resident and purchased my first home almost two years ago. I am a bookseller and artist here in the city and know the SE particularly well, as I grew up on Division St. I purchased this home two years ago and spent months preparing it for rental. I take comfort and sleep very seriously so the furniture is quality comfort, there are 2 large TVs with all the cable channels plus Netflix, and there is a pillow top queen mattress in the bedroom. I am happy to answer any questions you have about the neighborhood or Portland as a whole, and I thank you for considering the apartment for your trip.

Why The Owner chose Ardenwald

I am born and raised in SE Portland and as inner SE changed I decided I wanted a little respite away from the busy-ness it has become. This home is a good mix of peaceful and close to the center of the city so I decided it was appropriate as my first home, then decided I would make areas of the home separate for short term rentals. The city of Portland made the process more difficult than I hoped but I am finally up and running and again thank you for considering the apartment for your stay.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a large apartment with ceilings taller than 8 feet so it feels expansive. The bedroom gets good light from the egress window and the microfiber couch and pillow top memory foam queen mattress are very comfortable. There are two 55" LED TVs with almost all the cable channels including HBO, Showtime and Netflix. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood on a semi-busy street which slows markedly at night. There is a park close by, and it is a 10-15 minute drive to inner SE or the center of downtown Portland. Also, I am 7 blocks from a MAX station if you want to take public transport, though the station is located down a sizable hill. There is also a kitchenette, with washer/dryer and over 800 SF to yourself with a private entrance. This is a peaceful location but close to the middle of Portland and the newly desirable bar and restaurant scene.
