About Sue and Bob Low
We live in a historic home in Laurelhurst, in Portland. Sue is a retired principal and Bob retired from the big aerospace company in Seattle (Boeing). Sue has a passion for decorating and gardening (is very creative and good at both), Bob is into art and also enjoys and appreciates creating and living in a tasteful environment. We both enjoy entertaining, hosting frequent social gatherings in our home in our English garden or just having friends over for a 'glass' of wine. We also have a house on the Oregon Coast that we love and enjoy sharing with family and friends and that is also available for short term rental. We stay constantly busy with our 'projects' spending time with the grandchildren, try to fit some time in for a little golf and getting away for a few days from time to time. As hosts we would be happy to invite our guests for a tour of our historic home, sit with us and enjoy a glass of wine in front of the inglenook fireplace or on the patio in the garden. If our guests prefer to left alone we are sensitive to that as well. Our goal is to provide a welcoming, comfortable, and tasteful environment for our guests, and possibly develop new friendships. As guests we appreciate friendly, but sensitive to our privacy, hosts that provides a clean, comfortable environment that makes us feel at home. We also appreciate hosts that provide recommendations and insight into places to visit and things to do. As to a life motto we both think that, Live, Love, Laugh and Learn is how we approach life.
Sue and Bob Low purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Sue and Bob Low chose Laurelhurst
We love unique older homes and are very proud of our historic home because it has been preserved over the years. The only room we needed to redo was the 1960's kitchen which we remodeled back to a period kitchen which was featured on the cover of Old House Journal! Our apt. is decorated in a 1950's-60's decor with authentic metal cabinets, Formica table and chairs and furnishings.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apt. has it's own private courtyard with access to our lovely English Gardens in the backyard. It has a very comfortable bed, a pantry and it's own washer/dryer. Guest Access Guests enter by going through the front iron gate to the front porch and then take the side gate to the side door in the courtyard. There is a lock box with a key to the apt. on the fence post if we are not home. Interaction with Guests We always try to greet our guests personally and give them a tour of the home and surroundings. Upon request, we are happy to provide our guests with suggestions for exciting places to visit, dine and/or play! We love meeting new friends! Laurelhurst is an historic old Portland neighborhood with beautiful homes, street trees and a huge park a few blocks away designed by the Olmsted's who designed Central Park in NYC. You will see how homes in Laurelhurst are each very different and unique from craftsmen with large porches to smaller bungalows with beautiful gardens. Public transportation is only a block away and great stores, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. We like to entertain and will sometimes have friends over for a barbeque, dinner party or even a small party. Guests are always welcome to join us. However, guests do have their own private courtyard with privacy, a place to eat outside and enjoy the lovely pots of flowers.

Central and comfortable apartment
Cozy well equipped basement apartment, exactly as described in listing; quiet leafy neighbourhood close to central Portland. Sue and Bob we’re away during our stay but called to be sure all was well after we arrived. The rental met our needs, and was comfortable to return to each evening.
Feel like a Portland Insider
Unique neighborhood living in a cozy safe setting. Bob and Susan were perfect! They gave some valuable tips about things we would have missed in Portland. I recommend this Vrbo.
Sue and Bob could not have been more gracious and the property both inside and out is immaculate! When our travel plans call for a stay in Portland we will defiantly be staying at Laurelhurst again!!
A picture perfect charming cottage
When we booked this wonderful place we thought we knew how beautiful the house & cottage were by pictures that we viewed. Once we arrived we were stunned. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but once you experience Sue & Bobs wonderful home you will be speechless. We had a great time staying there and would recommend it to anyone.
Charming Historic Home
The garden apartment in this historic home is located near the downtown. It was a perfect location for our stay in Portland. The 50's era furnishings and decorating of the apartment provided this Boomer generation couple a nostalgic discovery of things we remembered from our homes as we grew up. The location of the apartment is perfect for visiting all of the major attractions in Portland. We had a rental car but the apartment is located close to public transit for buses and trains. The train station is within walking distance and this offers a great option to dealing with Portland traffic. The owners, Bob and Sue, were available when we needed information or assistance. They had a lot of information on the area, restaurants and services in the folder in the unit. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this location.
It is a very nice house , so special. When we are in Portland we stay again. Very nice hostess, He showed us around the neighbourhood,so kind.
Close to public transportation, airport, great dining, many breweries, wine bars, boutiques and shops, a beautiful park and walkable Parks and neighborhoods.
