About Ken Murray
I am the property owner, live on the premises and am a world traveler (photo from Brazil) and love to host fellow travelers.

Why Ken Murray chose Hayhurst
I bought this large property so I could live in this fine neighborhood and also rent to guests. The area is great for recreation, sightseeing and family visits.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Garden Apartment has great access to downtown Portland while enjoying the quiet of a pretty neighborhood. The gardens, decks, hot tub and barbecue are enjoyable much of the year. Access to 3 freeways and other major avenues make sightseeing easy. Hillsdale also has its own Farmers Market.

We selected this property based on its location near our adult children. The description of the property on the website was spot-on; very cozy, comfortable, and warm with all the amenities we needed to make it home away from home. Ken, our host, made us feel very welcome and gave us all the information we needed to get ourselves settled without a hitch. We will definitely be back and do recommend this to family and friends.
Pam, thanks for the great review. Thank you for staying and I do look forward to your return visit.

perfect holiday house
Our family completely enjoyed our stay at this place - we made full use of the hot tub and relaxed in the spacious yet cozy suite which the hosts so graciously allowed us to stay in. Ken welcomed us warmly and was generous with his kitchen pantry. The beds were comfortable and surroundings quiet. It had everything we needed for our short stay.
Angela, thank you for the nice review. I enjoyed meeting your family and do come to Portland and stay again.
Wonderful and relaxing!!
Love this sunny apartment! Has everything you need and the bathtub is to die for!!! Ken is wonderful and very helpful! I would stay here every time I came to Portland! Close to one of the best restaurants...Verde Cocina!
Thank you for the great review of the Garden Apartment. I am glad you enjoyed staying there and do come and stay again.
The mother-n-law space offered exactly what we were looking for a warm cozy getaway. First impression upon arrival is the rich woodsy smell in the air, the abounded redwoods in and around the neighborhood which is built into a hillside. Walking up to the property the pictures presented doesn't do justice to the care and love which is obvious to the naked eye. Fate has a funny away of setting the tone of experience, as we exit the car Ken (owner) just happen to be leaving and we were greed with a welcoming smile and enthusiastic smile. A quick overview of why not to parking in front of the mailbox and we were off to climbing a short but steep flight of stairs. Once we reached the top of stairs, your sense continue to be stimulated. The kitchen area provided a feeling of home, having a wall of windows, and beautiful knotty pine floors which tied into the open space of the seating and bedroom areas. Ample closet and chest draw space to unpack and store your stuff. There's access to a washer and dryer if needed. The bath area has dual sinks which is a nice touch (more lighting for washing your face and makeup is needed) the tube is large enough for two adults. Simply stated, property description was accused, clean and well maintained. A cozy vibe away from it all but, close enough (5/10 mins drive) to downtown. Almost afraid to recommend the property for fear of sharing the perfect "Getaway" - money well spent.
Thanks again Ken for the hospitality hospitality.
Thank you for the great review of the Garden Apartment. I strive to make the space homey and inviting. I will look at the lighting for make up and am glad all other aspects met or exceeded your expectations. Please do come again.
Great find in beautiful Multnomah
Initially I was hesitant to book this place, since there was only one review. But I emailed back and forth with Ken and decided to give it a try.
His place is even better than it appears in the pictures. The "studio" is huge! The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable and tasteful. The bathroom is huge. Although the jacuzzi jets did not work, there is a hot tub in the yard.
The neighborhhod is quiet and close to charming Multnomah Village. Ken is responsive and friendly and helpful. My only negative is that you can hear the sounds from downstairs and you can also smell the food cooking downstairs. But these negatives are completely manageable (i aired out the apartment quickly) and are overshadowed by the beauty and peace of the studio. No hesitations in renting again.
Elaine, thank you for the great review of the Garden Apartment. I am glad you appreciated the Apartment and plan to rent again. In the future, I will ask and remind any guest below to use the cooking fans especially when guests are in the upstairs Apartment. Sorry about the noise below, again I will remind any future guest. I look forward to seeing you again.

Home Away From Home.
For the price of a stay at an Extended Stay studio with a kitchen you can experience, truly, a 1000 sqft home away from home with all the quality amenities, like a hot tub, outdoor grill, a kitchen equipped with high end kitchenware and appliances and many surprises. In a quiet,naturesque neighborhood, this gem is close to everything that the Portland area has to offer. Although we live in a resort style, oceanfront condominium we had a hard time leaving Portland. It's natural beauty, life giving energy, and kind, friendly people tempts us to move to this area of the country. Do yourself a favor. Come stay at this home away from home. Our gracious host will leave the light on for you.
Thanks, Gabe for the nice review of the Garden Apartment. I am glad you enjoyed the Apartment and I enjoyed meeting you as well. Do come again to visit Portland and stay at the Garden Apartment.
