What residents say about living here:

“Bayview Heights offers spacious one-bedroom apartments with ample closet space and a very efficient kitchen area. The building is very quiet at all times. and most apartments have wonderful views. My view is of downtown Portland and the bay. Most of the year I see spectacular sunsets from my window.”
 — L.P., Bayview Heights resident


 “I’ve been living in Bayview Heights for almost 15 years. The minute I set foot in this place, I just knew that [it] was for me. Sandra greeted me and really made me feel like this place was going to be a haven, and sure enough it has been! For many years, the original residents were all real friends. [W]e had become a very tight group of happy people living in the best place that anyone could have desired or hoped for. I can’t think of a better place to live peacefully and enjoy the blessings that go with growing old and feeble, but fully alive as well!”

— T., Bayview Heights resident
