Portland Garden Studio for Couples
Portland, Oregon, United States 97219
Relax in a peaceful setting among a stand of old growth Douglas Fir trees, within the city limits of Portland, Oregon. Visually protected from the busy street, you enter into your own private garden space, an oasis of charm on 1/3 acre of private garden with mature landscaping. The garden area offers a hammock for napping. Your private hot tub is located right off your deck and is ready for you day or night.
Although the apartment is attached to the main house, your privacy is maintained. Rob's handcrafted 6+ ft tall fencing surrounds the area to complete your seclusion from the rest of the world. In addition, there are three unused rooms between your living space and ours. We will not hear you, and you will not hear us. You will have off street parking on your private driveway at your separate entrance. The interior of the Portland Garden Apartment offers rich warm colors, exposed beam ceiling, skylights, up-to-date electronics and a brand new kitchen area.
Relax in the evening on the king bed in your cozy room. Enjoy your personal hot tub. Sit under the trees with your morning coffee or dine al fresco. Wander down the path and relax in the hammock with a good book. Downtown Portland with its art, music, and great food is only minutes away. Head out for the day to explore the Oregon coast, or visit our award winning wine country. There are so many great Oregon adventures!
Come stay with us! It will be our pleasure and honor to welcome you to our home!

Loved the Hot Tub
Thank you for making this place so special. It exceeded all our expectations. We loved soaking in the hot tub, and the bed was extremely comfy and cozy. Everything was thoughtfully set up in a beautiful, homey and tasteful way; all we had to do was enjoy it. This is truly a gem and we hope to return.
You were great guests! We enjoy getting first-timers to Portland and look forward to seeing you again.
Thank you for opening your home to us! We had a fantastic mother-daughter weekend & it was nice to come back to a house every night that we could call home.
We are so delighted that you chose our place! We would love to see you again sometime.
Falling In Love
My husband and I have been married for 17 years, we love each other with everything we are! When we came on this trip I didn't expect to fall in love again .. but I did! As you know, relationships have their ups and downs, their devastating moments and their triumphant ones and sometimes we lose each other on our journey. You have created a beautiful space for many things. This space means many things to many people. For us it has meant the reconnection of hearts and has served as a reminder as to why we chose one another in the first place. Thank you for allowing us to peek into your world and take time out to rediscover one another!
Thank you so much! This is why we do what we do, and we so appreciate your sharing a portion of your journey with us!
Relaxing start to our vacation
What a beautiful place! Coming from hot and humid Oklahoma, where the trees are barely taller than you, we greatly enjoyed our time here! We needed a break from our day-to-day and received a very relaxing start to our vacation. Thank you for all the hospitality!
Calm, Green and Cozy
Even though we stayed for just 2 nights, I can only say this was absolutely wonderful. You are great hosts, and the place is lovely, calm, green and cozy. Thank you for your hospitality!
We had an amazing time in your garden paradise. Although we spent a majority of our time out and about this was a quiet, comforting and peaceful place to rest our heads. We greatly appreciate the cleanliness and hospitality you offered us. The basket was a very warm touch, unfortunately we were unable to partake in much because we are gluten free, but there were many great local spots found. Although we never officially met, we would like to t hank you and we would love to stay again if we return.
Thanks for staying with us! Our housekeeper was so pleased to hear your comments about the cleanliness (and so were we!). I'm taking your gluten free status to make sure that I add some gluten free snacks to the basket. Safe journey home!
Hot Tub Sublime!
Thank you very much for opening your garden apartment to me! I really enjoyed staying here. The garden was relaxing and the hot tub was sublime! I will definitely come back the next time I'm in Portand.
Tom and I had a lovely tie in Portland as well as staying here. Love the hot tub! Thank you for your hospitality. Our grandmother's birthday was a hit!
We were so happy you could stay so close to your grandmother and that you were comfortable. We hope to see you again sometime!
Elegant and Charming
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful elegant and charming VRBO! When we come this way again we will definitely be back. Happy Holidays! Happy New Year - from your very thankful guests
A Little Haven In Portland
Thank you so much for letting us rent your cute studio! It was absolutely perfect for the two of us and just a quick trip to our son's apartment. We were very comfortable here. So enjoyed the snacks and appreciated having coffee available that first "groggy" morning after a long day of travel the day before. The kids and hubby really enjoyed the hot tub, thanks for allowing them over to enjoy it. A little haven in Portland! Hopefully we will be back sooner than later! Hope your Christmas was great! Thank you for allowing us to bring our family together for Christmas 2015. We will cherish it!
Happy New Year! From Guest Log
What a lovely space! Thank you Deb & Rob for providing such a warm, comfortable space for us to ring in the New Year. We especially loved soaking in the hot tub and listening to the wind in the trees. Very grateful for a place to relax and rejuvenate so close to the fabulous metropolis of Portland. We will tell our friends and hopefully be back ourselves. All the best,
Weekend Respite - from Guest Log
Thank you so much for having us! This garden studio was perfect for a quick R & R weekend for us. Super convenient location. The snacks, robes & hot tub were a wonderful touch. We will be back for sure!
Charming - from Guest Log
Thank you so much for providing a wonderful retreat for us. It was exactly what we needed. The care and charm you put into this place shows everywhere! We will certainly be back next time we are in the area.Just a quick note. NomadPDX was an amazing place!! Their food was superb, one of the top 3 tasting menus we've ever had. Highly recommended!!
2 Steelhead on the Siletz! - from Guest Log
Debi & Rob -What a great place! As a long gone Portland native it was a real treat to find a Lloyd Jones CD in the stack. It took me back a few years to a time when Portland was a bit different. Enjoyed the stay and the privacy. I was in town to visit my 94 year old mother and it was nice to have this space to get away and have a bit of time to myself. Thanks!Two steelhead on the Siletz River and rain on the face in the hot tub were nice too!
Happy Valentine's Day! - from Guest Log
and Thank You for the perfect place to spend our wedding night. You were so kind to leave us champagne to celebrate - and we did! We will be back. This will always be a very special place for us. XO
Another Lovely Stay-From Guest Log
Thank you for yet another lovely stay in your Garden Apartment. Everything worked out perfectly and you'll see me again soon. It's wonderful to have a home away from home when I have to be in Portland.
We love that Candy choses to stay here when she is in Portland on her business trips. Finding friendship with our guests is one of our greatest joys!
Fantastic! From Guest Log
What a fantastic little place! It was perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our one year anniversary here! Thank you so much for the bottle of wine, it was delicious! We are really going to miss this lovely space and view. We winded down on the patio every night enjoying nature, the view of the sunset through the trees and the night sounds of the frogs! Thank you again so much!
Refreshed by Beauty
From Log Book: Thank you so much for offering me a home away from home while I was here. I am refreshed by Beautiry and it was lovely to have this beautiful oasis to come back to every evening while I was in school. Steve and I had a wonderful time here for our anniversary and loved exploring some of the Oregon beauty. I will definitely be back to visit my home away from home. Thank you so much!
Wow! Where do we begin?! This place has been an absolute delight! The oasis you offer in this apartment is beyond words. After a chaotic first half of 2015, this vacation was much needed and your apartment provided the perfect environment to relax, rest and enjoy the many pleasures Oregon has to offer. We will absolutely recommend your place in the future and hope to stay here again. Thank you for your kindness and hospitality.
From the Log Book: When I fly to Portland for work, I usually stay at a hotel. This experience was beyond compare! You guys are very gracious hosts, and your place is great to come 'home' to after a long day of work. This has been an awesome experience!
We didn't want to leave!
From the Log Book: Thank you for the absolutely perfect place for us to 'get away'! We ha a great visit to Portland and will be back! We loved how when we pulled up to the house we felt at home! Thank you for the wonderful accommodations, everything was fantastic. Can't wait to come back!
From Log Book: Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! The fresh flowers and beautiful garden could never be beat by a hotel stay!! We had everything we needed ... And then some This was one of our best rips - Portland is gorgeous and we did so much Definitely took it all in and plan to return. When we do, we will be in touch! Love the owls, too!
Lovely and Convenient
From Log Book: Every time we pulled into the driveway, we felt like we were 'home'. Lovely place, so convenient and so well appointed! Thanks so much!
Relaxing and Wonderful
From Log Book: Thank you so much for helping me coordinate the details for my stay in Portland. Debi thank you for being warm and nurturing. I truly appreciate our concern for me and making sure all my needs were met. The amenities and added homely touches made staying here relaxing and wonderful. Looking forward to returning and staying with you again! *close to Fred Meyer *Restaurants *Covenient for getting to and from downtown
From Log Book: We loved your charming studio. We felt so at home here. You have thought of every detail to make people comfortable. Your fresh flowers, treat basket and so many other things that we would not have had in a hotel room. The bed was very comfortable. It is a great location. We enjoyed going to so many places that brought back lots of memories from our 2 times living in Portland. We will certainly tell family and friends about your great studio. We have stayed in several VRBO rentals through the years from the 2 of us having 20 including our children and grandchildren and great grandson. None have been nicer. Thank you for the wonderful stay.
Feels Like Home
Great job on making this cute place feel like a home! The bed is literally the most comfortable bed I've every slept in. Loved having TV, snacks, tea and hot tub at the end of our long days in town. I will definitely be in touch when we visit again. Portland felt lie home, thanks for that.
The perfect retreat! The owners are incredibly nice to deal with and refunded my deposit quickly. The apartment was even cuter in person than onine. I made use of both the hot tub and the hammock and found this to be a wonderful oasis right outside the city. I will stay their again onmy next trip to Portland!
My wife and I came out and stay here for about 4 days and it couldn't have been any better. Debi was excellent checking in with us and making sure we had everything we needed. The apartment was set up perfectly, even with a welcoming note for us. Very impressed and somewhere we will definitely stay again when we come to Portland in the future. Thanks so much for the hospitality!
Thank you for choosing our little apartment for your home while you were in Portland. We feel we are an extension of the City and a representative of what the Pacific NW has to offer. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time here, and look forward to your return. Thanks again, and please DO come back!
Can't put in words how awesome this place is. The owners are sweet and caring. The rental property itself is a oasis of relaxation. There is a hammock, a garden, patio and table, and hot tub! Hot tub is clean and well kept. And the bed! The most comfortable bed and best night sleep. You will want to ask the owners for the specs. This place is perfect for the couple that is looking to visit Portland or Lake Oswega looking for a peaceful spot to relax, unwind, and enjoy.
Thanks so much for your great review! We LOVE it when our guests are able to take advantage of all that we offer here. Nothing makes us feel better than knowing that you were comfortable, and able to enjoy the hot tub and the hammock under the trees. You were great guests!
My mom, my daughter and I stayed here for the weekend while house hunting. It was so nice to have a hot tub to relax in at the end of the stressful days. We all slept hard, even my 1 year old. They had everything we needed for her including a high chair and play n pack. Debi and Rob brought over a slide and play tent for her which she loved. They are wonderful people. Location is amazing. Close freeway entrance, on bus line, close to costco, Winco and Walmart. Kitchen was well equipped. Yard was beautiful and hammock was relaxing. We enjoyed all the amenities. I highly recommend this rental and I will use in future if needed.
It was fun to have a child in the area again! And good for us too, in that we have some toys and children's equipment that we could share with you. We take such delight in our grandchildren, that it felt good knowing there was you and your young family nearby. We are so glad that you enjoyed the hammock under the trees, too!
My fiancé and I were very satisfied with our stay. The property and gardens were excellent and very private. I wish we had more time to chat with Debi and Rob but there is so much to do in the area that we were gone for most of the day...but they are very kind and easy to work with! The bed was very comfortable and we slept great. When we return to the area we would most definitely stay again...the small touches such as fresh flowers and hot tub added romance and we loved the owls as well. Thank you so much!
We are so glad that you were able to take advantage of so many sights and activities in the area. It always pleases us to know that our visitors are enjoying their stay and so much of what the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Thanks also for mentioning that you slept well. A comfortable bed is so important! We would be delighted to have you back!
I can't think of a thing that would have made it better. The 5 star reviews from everyone says it all. You can lie on the comfy couch with a book and look out through the glass door into the garden and pines although my favorite view was in the hammock swaying away. You won't want for a thing.stores and services are nearby if needed but it feels miles away. If you want to go out for meals, our favorite find in Lake Oswego the next town south is petite Provence which is awesomely delicious.
We had a quick trip to Portland and this was the most perfect little oasis, nestled in the southwest corner of the wonderful city. It was sparking clean and had everything we could have needed. The hot tub was wonderful to relax in after a stressful day of house hunting. Wish we could have stayed longer!
I had an awesome time at OregonShearwater, the studio had everything and more than I needed, Debi and Rob were perfect host, and the are quiet and relaxing which was awesome :) Looking forward to be back.
We loved having you here! We don't always get a chance to meet our guests, and we both really enjoyed you being here and learning from you. Our first visitor from Greece!
We had very relaxing stay. This charming studio lacked for nothing. It is a very comfortable 400 sq. ft. We didn't use the bus line, but it stops right in front and is so convenient if you choose to use public transportation. Owners are very hospital. The place is immaculate. They have added a lot of special touches for your comfort. We have stayed at several VRBO sites and I would say this is amongst the best.
It is great that the bus stop is right at the end of our driveway, and Car2Go is located just up the hill at the Community College both excellent for getting around locally or into the City. We still recommend having a car, and we have more than ample parking. It was a real pleasure meeting you - you are a charming couple! - and we would love to hear from you again!
We had a wonderful stay at your place! It was so cozy and romantic. Thank you.
Everything we needed
Thank you for your beautiful studio. We had everything we needed and more. On our Portland adventures, we looked forward to returning to our luxurious bed and warm covers.
Exactly what we needed
Thank you so much for a lovely space to be in. After 3 days of ChocolateFest this was exactly what we needed to come "home" to. Thank you for the little touches of thoughtfulness - greatly appreciated! Hope you enjoy the truffles, see you again soon!
Review for Portland Garden Studio for Couples
Wonderful apartment. Every amenity has been thought of. Thank you for the flowers for my daughter's wedding. I slept well and enjoyed the lovely back yard.
What a wonderful space you created here. Perfectly appointed - you thought of everything people need and more! Thanks for the fresh flowrs, basket of treats and cozy robes! The hot tub is great after a long day. We will surely return and tell our friends and relatives about this great find! p.s. I really like the little animals with wire legs :)
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! The accommodations were wonderful. I loved all the fresh flowers & the goodies when we arrived. So thoughtful! Beautiful place!
Thank you so much for letting us stay here on our first night as a married couple! You have a wonderful place here and we loved the quaintness of the garden.
When my tennis friends asked me, "How's your rental?" I answered, "it's more like a swanky hotel room at the Ritz, or a B & B!" Your studio ranks among the most comfortable VRBO I've done, and I've done many All the little touches were swell: the bathrobes, the flowers, olive oil and spices in the cupboard, teabags... Had I been here more, were it not so warm in the afternoons, I wold have lounged more outside on the patio - or in the hot tub. Those are wonderful plusses for your studio, too. I could go on with praise. Suffice it to say your little studio vrbo is top-notch, A+, in all ways. Thanks for your efforts and kindness.
Had a wonderful evening at PDX romance - enjoyed the hot tub and even got a bottle of prosecco as a wedding gift! A beautiful garden outside that is nice to enjoy after a dip in the hot tub. We had a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed longer!
Cara, thank you for choosing the PDXromance for your wedding night! It's a special time in a couple's life, and we were honored to be a part of it. Best wishes to you and your new husband for a future filled with love and happiness!
Thanks for an awesome experience. Your studio is beautiful, and much more than we could have imagined. Having our own private garden and hot tub was incredible, and though we spent much of our time in the City, coming home to this was the perfect end to our day, each day. We're definitely planning to stay here agin in the future, and we'll recommend the space of all of our friends and family!
My husband and I had a wonderful experience at this rental! Debi made us feel very welcome. Apartment was beautiful and super clean. Great parking and privacy. Such nice little touches like coffee beans to grind and cold bottled water. Thank you!
We were so happy to have you and Joe here, Jana! We would love to have you come again on your next visit to Portland.
