This amazing duplex is located in the heart of Portland's most unique neighborhoods. Alberta Arts District always has something unbelievable to look at (people riding bikes while juggling), amazing restaurants to eat at (home to Portland's culinary creativity), fun pubs to have a drink (locally brewed beers won't disappoint), and loads of independent stores to purchase gifts at (adorable dresses, funky jewelry, await you). The best part is the house is in the heart of the area. It's the location you hope to get when book a vacation rental. Walking distance to all on Alberta Street. 15 minutes by car from the airport, 10 minutes by car to the heart of the city. The bus stop is a block away and there is also off street parking at the house.
High Gear (the upper level of the duplex) has 4 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. An open living, dining, and kitchen area. The first floor houses 3 of the bedrooms. 2 with queen beds and the third with a bunk bed (double lower and twin above). The first floor also has a full bath with walk in shower.

The kitchen is fully stocked from coffee grinder to microwave oven to blender. You will be able to cook up a feast and eat in comfort at the wood dining table adorned with beautiful dishes.
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, MashTun Brewery, I Am Yoga Bikram Studio, The Cheese Plate, The Wax Skin Spa, Crafty Wonderland & more....You get discounts to all these wonderful places! So eat, drink and shop- all a stroll away and all at a discounted price!
The side yard boasts the coolest kids hive play structure, teeter tooter, picnic table and yard games. In the nice weather its a perfect spot to enjoy a meal or let the kids run free!
The house had been newly gutted and remodeled using sustainable and local materials, and has inspiring touches throughout the house. It promises to be one of the best vacation rentals in all of Portland.
For larger groups, this house can be rented along with vrbo/443441 (low gear the 3 bedroom/1.5 bathroom). This configuration would sleep 15 people in beds.
We have a pack and play and high chair in the house, to make traveling a bit easier for those with kids. We also have some games and books. Outside there is a wonderful side yard with play structure, teeter tooter and plenty of room to run!...moreless

About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Alberta Arts District: The location couldn't be any better. It sits in the heart of Alberta Arts District and this Portland neighborhood encompasses all the amazing features that makes Portland- Portland. 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.
The Unique Benefits at this House: I think our rental has many unique areas- from a large side yard filled with interesting kids structures to corn hole which is a game that friends can play and enjoy for hours. Inside the house has bike themed interiors from hanging tricycle lights to handle bar coat racks. We wanted the house to be comfortable for guests, so details such as reading lights above the beds were put in every room. We hope you love your stay!
