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.
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!
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 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 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.
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!
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!
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!
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 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!
This is the perfect place for a couple to stay when visiting Portland. The studio apartment is beautifully decorated and has everything you might need if you choose to cook and dine in. The large king size bed was especially comfortable. There is a well-positioned, large screen TV with Netflix that you can watch from the bed or from the dining table. Other features to note are the fast and reliable Internet connection, the powerful and hot shower, and the efficient air conditioning unit. Outside there is a wonderful private hot tub, outdoor table and chairs, and hammock. The setting is a romantic one. The owners, Debi and Rob, are remarkably helpful yet also allow you complete privacy. The location was perfect for us - just a short drive to downtown Portland plus lots of shopping nearby. The owners recommended that we check out nearby Barbur World Foods which we did and purchased dinner from their amazing selection of hot and cold takeout Middle Eastern food.
We were so happy to meet you! We don't get to meet all our guests, and really love it when that happens. It was a pleasure to have you here and are delighted that the internet connection, hot tub and kitchen extras were a good fit for you. Thanks so much for choosing our place for your stay in Portland!
We decided to honeymoon in Portland and my now husband came across this little gem. I was reluctant at first and preferred to stay in a hotel but I have to say, this was SO much better! It's completely separate from the main house and provides lots of privacy. Inside the house is decorated so cute and it feels very homey. Deb and her husband have literally thought of everything and provide toiletries, towels, the most comfy robes and even snacks. We were so close to everything including the city and got to end the day by soaking in the hot tub after long hikes. It was incredibly relaxing and the perfect little retreat. The next time we are in the area we will most definitely stay here. Do yourself a favor and book this place for your next trip. Thank you Deb and Rob!!
This property was PERFECT! SO clean, well equipped (had everything we needed), perfect size for a couple. The hot-tub was the perfect finish to a long day in the City & after hiking. The attention to detail by the owners was wonderful. They take pride in their property and it shows. Beautiful flowers at the door to greet us. Fresh coffee beans, grinder & coffee drip & much much more!!! We will definitely be back & we would most definitely recommend this place to all our Family & Friends! Thank you :)
We wanted to surprise our son for Christmas and knew he didn't have enough space for us so that is when I came upon this wonderful studio only 4.3 miles away! It was perfect for the two of us, and Debi was gracious enough to allow my kids to come over and use the hot tub! Very comfortable king-size bed, gigantic fluffy towels for the bathroom and hot tub, coffee beans, a french press, snacks, and fresh flowers rounded out our greeting when we arrived late on the evening of December 22. Had every amenity we were looking for, including the elusive fan (which I run to drown out "night noises") and a blow dryer, which I forgot to ask about ahead of time! Although located at a somewhat busy intersection, we didn't find the traffic noise obtrusive, and we were so close to everything for a quick commute to everywhere we needed to go in the greater Portland area with quick access to I-5. Thanks, Debi and Rob, for allowing us to rent your little oasis. I hope to be back sometime (although my son now tells me he's moving to the NE part of town in March)! You guys obviously take a lot of pride in your studio and it definitely shows in the little things...keep on doing what you're doing!
My wife and I travelled to Portland to get married and spent our wedding night at the Garden Oasis. This lovely little cottage is perfect! It's private, comfortable, super clean, and is totally complimented by the fantastic owners who were very friendly (they even left us a bottle of champagne!) We would definitely recommend this property and will stay here again. Book with confidence!
We had a great stay at Debi's place in Southwest Portland!!! The apartment was very clean and stocked with every kitchen utensil possible. Whole place was decorated very nice and the deck and private garden hot tub were fantastic! Back yard was huge and included a gas barbecue and pond. Small drive-way but was easy to access once you find it. Owners were friendly and great to work with, THANKS Debi and Rob!!! Tom & Justin
Tom and Justin, it was great to meet you and so fun to know that you used to live close by. We are also delighted that you took such great enjoyment in the hot tub. I'm assuming you were teasing about the 'small driveway' in your review, since we have parked more than 7 cars there at one time! You were great guests, and we would love to see you again.
From the start our experience was fabulous. When i arrived there were fresh flowers and and welcoming note from Deb. The inside was so much more than I could have imagined. Everything was perfect and very homely feeling. There was even a basket of snacks and a variety of teas to choose from. The hottub was a nice comfort after a day of hiking and exploring the beautiful scenery in the area. The outside garden oasis was gorgeous and a nice place to sit with hot tea in the morning. It was nice watching the roses bloom on the trees and just enjoy the peace and solitude that was provided in my stay. The experience was awesome and i hope to return in the future!
Ashley it was a pleasure to have you here, too! I'm so glad you enjoyed the snacks we left for you and the flowers. It is honestly one of my greatest joys to browse the yard choosing blooms for our incoming guests. It's lovely to know that they are appreciated. Thanks again for choosing our place from among the many in the Portland area.
This was such a fantastic start to our vacation! It was so relaxing. We spent the rest of the trip wishing we were back there with the giant bed, hammock, and the hot tub! The hosts were super nice and suggested lots of interesting things, not only in Portland, but on the Oregon coast as well. Very helpful and one of the suggestions, the sea lion cave, turned out to be one of our favorites of the trip! I am still dreaming about falling asleep in the hammock. Beautiful garden as well. I wish I could take it all back to Oklahoma with me...
We loved having you here too! We frequently talk about our guests after they leave and in your case, we were wondering where you went and what you liked best about Oregon. We are fascinated by where our guests choose to visit and always want to suggest those places that will be most meaningful for them. Thanks for choosing OUR place among the many here, and we'll keep the hot tub clean and hammock fresh for your next visit!
The cottage was so private and, quiet. We used the hot tub every day, it was awesome!! Debi and her husband greeted us when we showed up and gave us a tour. They were helpful and kind. My daughter and I stayed here and we felt very safe and secure. We will be staying here again on our next trip to Portland! This place is highly recommended!!!!
The garden studio is a great place to stay! It is very private, yet only minutes away from dozens of restaurants, and has easy access to downtown and many area attractions. The apartment is modern and very clean, and the owners are very friendly and great to work with. Highly recomended!
Thank you Silas! It was a real pleasure to have you here and we enjoyed meeting you. We hope you have many happy years together and are glad that we were able to help facilitate a great honeymoon experience and a cherished memory.
This was our first stay in Portland. We stayed the week and this garden apartment was perfect for our needs. It had everything we needed, close to downtown, was very clean, comfortable, w/a lovely private garden, and the jacuzzi was delightful! Communication and response time with the owner was quick and easy and their online newsletter about the area with suggestions for restaurants and other things to do in Portland was very helpful. We cannot wait to return!
This was our first VRBO so we have no other stay to compare it to. Debi and Rob were very friendly and very competent in providing instructions and directions. The studio was as advertised with a nice private entrance and beautiful garden that the weather did not permit us to enjoy. The location was excellent for SW Portland/Tigard with easy freeway access in both directions. The cooking area worked out just right. If you like to spend some free time reading, the lighting was not sufficient; some lights directed downward at the couch would solve the problem. The bed was too soft for my taste and needs the head end raised in order to be level. Would we stay again? We would first inquire if my concerns above at been addressed and if so, yes.
As a busy business traveler, the last thing I want to do is stay in another hotel chain when I'm on vacation, which is why we prefer VRBO.. The private Garden Oasis was the perfect getaway for us, and the location was convenient to where we need to be for the long Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks for a lovely, private, quiet, relaxing retreat.
Thanks for choosing our place! We are sorry we didn't get a chance to meet you and look forward to that opportunity another time!
The rustic and comfortable studio "cottage" is the perfect private getaway for a romantic weekend. It's about 20 minutes south of Portland Downtown so it's not super convenient to run to and from if you have many activities planned, but it is great for a weekend in. It's close to many grocery stores and restaurants and has all the nessecities for making your own meals. The yard is nice, lots of trees and folliage. Sitting in the Hot Tub late at night was amazing. This really is a great place to stay.
Perfect for 2 people... the hottub is an amazing touch (we used it 2x/daily) and very well appointed. Perfect location... little slice of paradise! Deb and her husband are just the friendliest people... we can't wait to return! Thanks from Santa Cruz, CA -The Terlep's
This place is nestled right in a corner behind a spacious driveway and fenced in for privacy. The studio is quaint but very adequate wth the highlights being the outdoor hot tub and picturesque garden complete with walking path, hammock and patio furniture under a gazebo. Very comfortable and home-like vibe, awesome hosts and convenient to everything in Portland. I was literally never farther than a 25 minute drive to anything I wanted to do. Can't wait to revisit and stay here again!
We were delighted to have you stay in our Garden Studio! It's very important to Rob and I that our guests are comfortable. We want you to feel like you are welcome and hope the amenities we provide go a long way towards that. We love our tall old growth firs and that they are enjoyed by so many from all over the world. Enjoying the hot tub in the privacy of your own garden is a treat after a long day of sight seeing that we know is important to many. We would love to have you come again, and thanks so much for the great review!
In our correspondence with the owners they made it clear that their goal was to exceed our expectations. They were successful. We’ve stayed at many VRBOs and typically the places feel Spartan, minimal décor and virtually no consumables other than soap and shampoo. This place is tastefully decorated with several cute touches. Furthermore in addition to a welcome basket containing a large number of snack foods, they provided a lot of condiments and cooking ingredients so that you don’t need to buy a whole bottle of oil or ketchup just for a tablespoon or so. Just in case that wasn’t enough, they checked in with us to ensure there wasn’t anything else we needed. They also provided robes, umbrellas and even an ice chest for our use. The refrigerator was a full size unit with ample space for groceries. The bed was very comfortable. Large private driveway. Fully functional kitchen. Beautiful garden and huge trees.
We really enjoyed staying in this garden apartment. It was clean and tastefully decorated. The backyard was a true oasis. It is very private and landscaped beautifully. We enjoyed the private hot tub. The owner, Debi provided everything that we needed. She even brought us some fresh blueberries when we arrived. She is helpful but also very respectful of your privacy. She emailed us a list of recommendations for the coast once, she found out our travel plans. We hope to return in the future.
We spent a delightful few days around the solar eclipse at this cozy but large studio, and really enjoyed our stay. The place is well-appointed, has all the necessary stuff for a short stay, and Debi and Rob were very helpful and friendly. They provided some shopping and eating recommendations that were right on the money. Parking was easy, and access to the freeway and local stores was convenient. Most hot tubs in rentals have problems, but this one was perfect on many levels - convenient, clean and functional. The garden provided a pleasant and relaxing view from the patio. We had a late flight on our checkout day, and the hosts graciously allowed us to stay past the usual checkout time, which made for a very comfortable departure. We would definitely recommend this place to a single or couple that are looking for a relaxing stay on the outskirts of Portland.
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The studio was very clean and cozy with everything you need and more. Debi was very responsive and I liked that privacy was important to her. The fridge was huge and I made breakfast every morning. Garden is gorgeous! The hammock is sturdy thank goodness lol and the hot tub was the absolute highlight! After a long day exploring and hiking the hot tub was heaven. Thank you so much for an amazing stay.
We had a delightful visit over the holidays in the apartment, which is cozy and outfitted with just about everything you need for a comfortable stay. The king-size bed is extremely comfortable. The apartment and location fit our needs perfectly. We even had snow! Our one suggestion to our hosts is that since several of the lights were burned out or not working, particularly in the kitchen area, a more thorough check would have been appreciated. This apartment would also be perfect in the spring or summer. The private garden area is delightful and I can imagine that it would be quite a nice retreat with morning coffee or over a glass of wine in the evening! Thank you; we enjoyed our stay.
This is a well put together little oasis for a quiet get away. The hot tub, deck, and private garden are really lovely. The interior is full of nice hospitality touches. We enjoyed our stay here very much! The only thing to be aware of is that Debi hasn't figured out how to fit a washer and dryer in so pack accordingly.
Immaculate property including the hot tub. Private, comfortable. Debi and Rob quickly provided extra chairs for us to us when our son and daughter-in-love visited. Many long afternoons and evenings were spent talking and laughing. There was also a welcome basket of goodies to snack on if you didn’t have time to stop at the store yet. I slept terrifically on the comfy bed and loved waking up with light from the skylights. The skylight in the bathroom shower is like showering in sunshine...even for Portland. I would stay here every time I come to Portland if I could.
Thank you for the lovely review! It was a pleasure to have you here and we are delighted that you were comfortable. Rob is over-the-moon happy that you mentioned the skylight in the shower! When we installed it, we hoped it would be a hit with our guests. I'm stealing your phrase "like showering in sunshine" - we love it! Please come again and lets talk about Kansas.
We had a wonderful long weekend visiting old friends in Portland. This cute little “cottage “ was perfect for all we wanted to do. It was clean and the bed is comfortable. Everything we could possibly want was in there...except a Keurig. I know this is probably blasphemous to PNW people but even though I love French Press coffee, it was intimidating, just stopped at Starbucks in the morning. The hot tub, though we only used it about 20 min. Was very nice. Very private, which was nice. Would/May do it again in the future.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The property was clean, private and despite being close to the highway, it was quiet inside and outside. The hot tub was truly amazing, settled like a ground nest under the trees with easy access, clean and always ready for a plunge. The owners were available for every need (although we didn't have any!). If we are in this area in the future, we will book this quiet oasis again for sure! Also very close to good shopping, theatre and restaurants. Highly recommended!
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!

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.
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 Owl Forest Studio-Portland Urban Oasis
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.
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!
