The house is a duplex. The upper apartment, high gear, can also be rented for even larger groups, please see vrbo/444951. It’s the perfect home base for wedding parties, reunions, workshops, family getaways, business meetings, etc.

What sets this place apart from others?
The location:
This inner Northeast Portland neighborhood is one of the coolest parts of the city. Alberta Street itself is lined with galleries, boutiques, several of Portland’s top restaurants as well as dozens of casual cafés and nightspots. Eat and drink your way down the street from Peruvian to Italian to Southern, slurping locally crafted coffee, beer and ice cream. Walking distance to a movie theater, several live music venues, a farmer’s market (summer) an organic food co-op and a top-notch supermarket. Minutes from the airport and minutes to downtown make it the perfect home base for an amazing stay in Portland.
One major perk about renting this house is the coupons our lovely neighbors have shared for our guests. Frock Boutique, Tin Shed, Garnish, Digs Inside and Out, Mimosa Studios, Bin 21, Cork Bottle Shop, Crafty Wonderland....You get discounts to all these wonderful places! So eat, drink and shop- all a stroll away and all at a discounted price!

              Car: Not Necessary

              Is simply perfect. The house sits in the heart of Alberta Street, Portland's most vibrant funky neighborhood. You can walk to a multitude of restaurants, bars, and stores. Inner NE Portland is centrally located so visiting other neighborhoods or going downtown is a few minutes drive. The house is 15 minutes from the airport. There is one parking spot off street and plenty of free parking on the street. The bus stop is 2 blocks from the house making public transport a breeze.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We are a husband and wife team who love to travel and love designing houses. Our passion for both led us to start of our business, Encircle Design and Build. We adore Portland and think it is, if not the, then one of the best cities in the USA. We are excited to share our home and neighborhood with you as it offers so much. In the house there is a list of recommendations of what to do and see in PDX!

              Why the Owner Chose Alberta Arts District:
              During our travels we have stayed at many places and began taking note of what we did/or didn't like with our lodgings. Our goal in creating Shift Vacation Rentals is to put together our ideal rental in our ideal city. We hope you find the artistic, funkiness, ecologically mindedness of Portland in our rental. We partnered with many local businesses and artists in creating the home to give it a look and feel that you won't find elsewhere. A walk down Alberta Street is an experience you will adore.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The private sunken patio gives a perfect spot to drink coffee in the morning. Reclaimed materials bring a history and story to the house that make it really special. There is thoughtfulness with all of the details from the paint colors to the lighting all of the items were specifically chosen to make the house beautiful and different.
