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.
Other things to note
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)
