Our Portland garden apartment is a studio space dedicated to couples. You will be charmed by the enclosed personal garden area, mature landscaping and old growth 100 ft+ tall Doug Firs, complete with hammock and garden swing. The private hot tub is located between the camellia and andromeda trees just off the deck and offers views of the garden.

This is a romantic hideaway for lovers, honeymooners, travelers and visitors passing through to one of our beach homes...or for folks visiting the Portland area for any reason.

You have your own entrance, separate off-street parking on the circular drive and is completely private from the rest of the property.

With one fourth of an acre dedicated to the garden studio, you will find that you have lots of visual privacy in a large area to call your own. We offer rural surroundings in an urban setting on a fairly busy street. You will be visually private, but expect some traffic noise, especially during rush hours.

In creating our “Garden Apartment”, one of our goals was to recycle and re-purpose as much as possible. We had fun doing it and thought we’d share this list with our guests:

  • The masonry for the patio came from a Portland school when they updated
  • The rocks that surround the patio were buried in the gardens here from the ‘50s
  • The wood frames inside the wall niches came from old cedar barn wood

We try to not use any herbicides, and recycle just about everything that the recycling people will take.

NOTE: The driveway is monitored for security purposes.

Oregon has legalized recreational marijuana use, but it is not legal to use it in public. You are welcome to take advantage of the privacy of the yard/garden, but please do not use in the apartment. We want you to enjoy the space we have provided for you, relax, and have a good time!


Although the apartment is attached to the owners' home, the living spaces are separated by multiple rooms, and sound-proofed walls. Extra detail has gone into planning your privacy.
