Kid Friendly West Hills Retreat w/ View, OHSU Tram
Description from the owner
Our home is VERY kid-friendly. We have a crib, a pack and play, a high chair, baby swing, bouncy chair, tons of toys and books for all ages and we are fully childproofed.
Welcome to SW Portland! This Kid-Friendly home has it all! We would love to be your family reunion headquarters (sleeps to 9-13 people) and we are just a mile from the heart of the city! Our home will make you feel perched amongst the trees with our hillside setting, and elevated, fenced yard overlooking a 100+ year old Douglas Firs forest.1 The living areas with oversized windows and special vaulted solarium is light and bright so on clear days you can see The Willamette River & Mt Hood!
If you have kids, this is the home for you! Aside from the bunk beds, crib, and pack and play, we also have a full array of toys for all ages. We have a baby cradle swing, a bouncy chair, and a ride on toy too! There is a fenced in covered patio/yard area for everyone to relax in the crisp Oregon air, and we are childproofed.
We are located in the center of the Terwilliger Parkway so there are miles of running along the most scenic running path in Portland. There is a child’s park is right around the corner, and we have a stroller to escort your bundle of joy to what seems like a private hillside play area. Our neighborhood is surrounded by an urban forest. A Marquam trailhead is just a block away where you can get lost in in the wonder of seeing a native old growth Hemlock stand (dates before Lewis and Clark), or follow the comforting sounds of Downy Woodpeckers, and Spotted Towhees.
Just a mile or so away are some of the best eats in town! We also have a fabulous local bakery, a centrally located between all of Portland’s Farmer's Markets, and lots of coffee shops to choose from. Check out Hillsdale’s epicurean food truck park for something special. Elephant’s Deli has freshly made, family sized meals such as the best meat loaf on the plant (truly), comfort food casseroles, hippie pizza, luscious biscuits, as well as decadent soups, and unique salads. Place their food in our dishes, and your relative will think you cooked it!
Our home has the living space effect going on, where the kids can watch TV while you wait on them hand and foot from the kitchen and still all see each other! This SW Hills home is all on one level- bedrooms to yard, so it is perfect for babies and kids. The kitchen is updated and has all the conveniences of your home! Can you smell the fresh, hot cookies? Mix up your perfect smoothie in a Kitchen Aid blender. Use the sizable pots to make pasta marinara for your exceptional, extended family “get together.”
You will have the use of the exterior area which has a panoramic views including the 1,000 sq ft patio gazebo, a gas barbecue and fire pit. Just imagine you can sip a gimlet as you lounge on the mahogany patio furniture while your hubby uses the shady gazebo to cook your Bar-B-Que. Ah yes, Portland summers are the best the US has to offer.
There is an Internet HD flat screen TV and a pullout sofa in the living room. Satellite TV with local channels for ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS for Portland, LA, and NYC! Also, HBO, ESPN, and Disney Channels. We have high speed Wi-Fi, so you can use your Netflix account (on the HD TV) or make Skype telephone calls.
The master bedroom has it's own bathroom, with a shower. The king sized bed has a comfy down comforter on it, just like at home!
The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and also a down comforter. There is a kid’s pullout mattress under the bed for your little one (crib/toddler sized).
The third bedroom has a full crib and a set of wooden bunk beds (both bunks with twin sized mattresses). There is a third twin mattress that pulls out under the bunk beds. This room is LOADED with toys, so your kids might have a hard time going home after your vacation (a good thing, they WON'T be bored)!
Aside from the sleeping arrangements in the three bedrooms, we also have a sleeper sofa two, queen-sized air mattresses, and a pack and play.
We are within walking distance of OHSU, so if you are helping the recovery of a patient with an extended stay at the hospital, this a calming, still location for your family to congregate, use one of our two fireplaces to make plans, settle your nerves, and take comfort with your loved ones.
Parking can be an issue close to the city center, but not here. We have ample free off street parking for six cars, no special permit needed.
NOTE: Below this home is another 1 bedroom/1 bath unit. If you have others coming into town at the same time, that also need lodging, consider that as an option. There is a queen bed in the bedroom and we have a pack & play and a high chair down there as well. Rates start at $150/night and go up.
We live in a very peaceful neighborhood and have quiet hours starting at 10 p.m. Please no loud parties, fraternities or bachelor parties.
