Our apartment has everything you need to feel like you're home. Comfortable furnishings, a very well equipped kitchen, private patio and off-street parking, all in a beautiful, quiet, older neighborhood close to downtown.
The Raleigh Hills Hideaway is a daylight basement apartment located in our late 1940's ranch-style home. Raleigh Hills is located between Portland and Beaverton and nestled up to the Portland West Hills area. We live in a quiet, established neighborhood.
Park in the private driveway and enter via the large patio into a roomy kitchen/dining area with a large island workspace and washer/dryer. Pass into the living area featuring a futon couch (converts to full-size bed), flat-screen cable TV and gas fireplace. The 3-piece bathroom (sorry, no tub) is off this area. Beyond the living area is the bedroom with a queen size bed. The kitchen/dining is separated from the living and bedroom areas which are one combined space. The apartment is comfortably furnished and well appointed.
We are located within easy walking distance to a park (with a summer pool and tennis courts), shopping, restaurants and downtown is just a few short miles away. We are also convenient to the Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) and hospital.
There is bus service with the nearest stop about 1/2 mile away.
Guests have access to the whole apartment, outside patio and driveway. We live upstairs, which is not accessible to guests.
We like to meet our guests at check-in whenever possible. When a situation occurs that we cannot meet at check-in, we have a lock-box for the key and the code is provided shortly prior to arrival.
No check-in after 10pm
Check-out by noon
No smoking or vaping in apartment or patio area.
I love working on our home and garden with my husband, John. I also enjoy cheesemaking, metalsmithing, kayaking, motorcycling, traveling (Hawaii anyone?) and playing with our dog, Nico. We are members of the Misti Krewe of Nimbus, a local social club who host an annual Mardi Gras Ball and help spread the music and culture of New Orleans to the Northwest.
As a guest of ours, you choose the level of interaction. We will honor your privacy, but are more than happy to help if asked. We can provide you with restaurant recommendations, music venues, shopping areas, nice drives, etc.
