Oatfield is a popular town, so when looking for apartments to rent in Oatfield, you need to have a strategy. Pick out your most desirable properties and favorite amenities then make a list, taking into account how much you want to pay. Methodically work through it until you decide where you want to apply. Be prepared to come up with first month, last month, and security deposit and to have a limited number of deals to choose from. Duplexes for rent are also an option as they were a popular design when many of the houses were built.
North Clackamas: The part of town near the North Clackamas Park and Highway 224 has a fairly varied mix of retail space, single family homes, and rental apartments. With the junction of Highway 22, Interstate 205, Sunnyside Road, and SE 82nd Avenue close, it's a great place for people driving some distance to get to work.
Jennings Avenue: The southern sections of the community are close to where the Clackamas River empties into the Willamette River, right next to the communities of Gladstone and Jennings Lodge. It's an area with some nice older homes and mature landscaping.
Hill Road / Thiessen: Anchored by the through streets of SE Hill Road and SE Thiessen Road, both of which intersect with Oatfield Road, this neighborhood is distinguished by mostly low traffic residential streets with nice homes and established landscaping. It's a great place to begin your search for townhouses for rent.
Everything that the Portland metro area has to offer -- from some of the best food anywhere to professional sports and a hot music scene -- is just minutes away. Another plus to Oatfield is that there is plenty of shopping and good restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs close by, so you don't have to go anywhere if you don't want to! The Cascade Mountains are less than an hour away and the spectacular Oregon Coast less than three. If you think you have run out of places to explore, you aren't looking. Take to the beach at Clackamette Park, where the two rivers come together at the south end of Gladstone, or try Meldrum Bar Park on a hot summer day.
