Portland is the ONLY U.S. city to be ranked in the top 25 most livable cities in the world! Nestled in the trees, this close-in RESIDENTIAL, private, homey, and spacious studio apartment provides a great place to replenish. The 8 x 10 private balcony beckons you to sit outside surrounded by trees and overlooking our flower and vegetable garden as you listen to the water fountain, enjoy the hummingbirds in the fuchsias, and the distant sound of our neighbor's chickens or tree frogs. Our yard is enclosed by a cedar fence for added privacy.
A ceiling fan and heat pump/air conditioner keep you comfortable year round.
While we absolutely LOVE how sun drenched Purple House is, we have thermal panel drapes that block out light (or purple eye masks); just in case you want to sleep in- enjoying our pillow-top queen beds. We also have a double futon with a 3 inch memory foam topper for added comfort.
There is full laundry room with washer and dryer and an over-sized drying rack system are in a shared space, just steps away.
We have a cupboard full of games for all ages and a handcrafted Mancala game table. A bookshelf full of books, CDs, DVDs and even a few vinyl records to enjoy.
If you just want to use Purple House PDX as a rehearsal space, it has comfortably fit up to 18 big band musicians (and lots of "groupies"), for regular rehearsals.
It has also been the Portland base for The Rad Trads when they come in from New York to play at The Waterfront Blues Festival. There is a pearl drum set, various percussion and other instruments, music stands, a electric guitar with an amp, as well as an acoustic guitar. A full sound system, including mics and stands, may also be available to rent separately.
Purple House PDX is a separate, upstairs, studio apartment, with your own private entry and 24/7 access. There is a keyless entrance code, personalized for each guest for security and easy access.
There is parking for one guest car in the driveway, right next to the stairway up to the apartment. There is also a parking pad to the left of the driveway and there is ample on-street parking if you have more guests with cars.
Motion detection lights and dawn-dusk purple twinkle lights make sure that your entry is well-lit and safe, no matter what time you come home.
The laundry room and over-sized, becoming tamed yard, are shared. Make sure to give us notice BEFORE going into the back yard so we can make sure our dogs are put inside.
Whenever possible, we like to welcome each guest personally when you first arrive. However since the studio is in a totally separate apartment with a completely private entrance, you'll be able to come and go as you'd like. We're available to help you in person or by phone/text as much or as little as needed. We'd like you to think of us as your non-intrusive, but helpful neighbors and hosts that are invested in YOU as you explore your new home.
We have made dear friends from all over the world and enjoy sharing our love for Portland and the great Pacific NW with others. As schedules permit, we're also happy to visit a bit, share a cup of tea/coffee or even homemade Pinot Noir or home-brew; even play music together. However, we are totally invested in respecting your privacy; so, it's really your call.
Since we clearly cannot control where our house is located, please make sure that YOU want to be in a quiet RESIDENTIAL neighborhood. Almost every guest has rated us five stars for location since Purple House PDX has the best of both worlds. West Portland Park is a very friendly, safe and quiet Southwest RESIDENTIAL neighborhood. We're just 6 miles/10-15 min drive (depending on time of day), from downtown, yet close to nature all around. A short walk rewards you with a spectacular 360 view from Mt. Sylvania, parks, running trails and tracks. Tryon Creek Nature Park is also close.
We are a great home base to explore nearby villages (Multnomah Village is a nice walk away on Capital) and cities, since we're close to Beaverton, Tigard, Tualatin and Lake Oswego. Near Lewis & Clark College and Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU), Shriners Hospital and Doernbecher Children's Hospital. We're also just five blocks or so to Portland Community College, Sylvania. Washington Square, Bridgeport Plaza, restaurants, SW Community Center pool/gym, Jewish Community Center pool/gym, sports bars.
While cars are convenient, Portland has a really amazing public transportation system. The train (MAX) goes directly from the airport to downtown where you can conveniently catch a bus. Purple House PDX is one block away from Capitol Hwy. which is right off of I-5 Freeway and #44, a major bus line, that goes right through Multnomah Village, Hillsdale and is a quick ride to downtown. It also stops at Portland Community College. We're also minutes away from a transit park & ride that connects to other major bus, rail and transit lines.
While we love dogs and love it when we are able to go to a place and take our dogs, we decided to keep the apartment completely dog/pet free out of respect for people with allergies.
Our dogs are down in our separate house and are not even allowed in the shared laundry room. Both are rescue dogs; one is an older gal and the other is a new 85 lb. 5 y/o "galoot' of a black lab. No doubt you'll hear them at times when you're coming in and out.
IF you need a "dose" of a dog, we'd be happy to invite you along on their walks. PLEASE let us know BEFORE going into the fenced yards. We will make sure to bring them inside so you don't accidentally startle them.
Taking a day trip to the coast? We belong to Coronado Shores, which is between Lincoln City and Newport at the Oregon Coast. Ask us and we can give you a guest pass to use the clubhouse with pool during the summer. (Closed)
