  • Allen S.

    "My wife and I visited Portland from Charlotte, NC to spend time with our grandson and family for his 1st birthday. What a delight it was to work with the owners in the use of their condo! It was a lovely setting and a simply appointed place where we were able to relax and enjoy our family. I would highly recommend this property, and especially working with the wonderful owners. It had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable and refreshing!"

  • Great for a working holiday

    "After a series of VRBO stays in Portland, this was our favourite. It's a charming and safe 2 blocks to the Willamette River bike path with secure bike storage and a pleasant walk to the merchants, cafes & great restaurants. The location is a pretty residential street and Tracey and Doug are extremely helpful hosts. The dog loved the wall to wall window view of the street below. The rooftop patio is a nice treat. Great spot."

  • Cute, quiet, cozy

    "This was our first time visiting Portland, I have to say staying here in this cute house and neighborhood made our experience more authentic and so nice. It was really great to have a cute place to come home to after a long busy day exploring all the awesome things Portland and the beautiful state of Oregon offer. Very VERY cute neighborhood, I highly recommend you stay in Sellwood if you're looking for a small town feel, lots of cute quaint shops, and whats awesome is that downtown Portland is a really close drive even though you feel like you're in a cute small town. Portland is awesome, just what we were hoping for we loved it. The house is in a very quiet location near the end of the street and you'll sometimes hear the faint sound of a train in the distance, really nice and calming. We had a rental car during our stay because we drove outside of Portland and all around, downtown Portland, Mount Hood Timberline Lodge, Columbia River Gorge, Astoria and the coast, Pittock Mansion, Nob Hill, Hawthorne, etc. Sellwood itself is very walkable, you could also bike everywhere if you wanted. Grocery store is really close and so cute, New Seasons grocery, great local foods etc. Only thing we had wished the house had was a fireplace and a little cozier more comfortable couch would have made it awesome, but overall really can't complain. Beautiful design, hardwood floors, art, furniture. Nice small touches of detail give it character. Oh and the sheets were soo soft and comfy, I slept so good, nice towels as well. We loved being in this cute house for our stay in Portland, made our experience really enjoyable. Thank you :)"

Smell the Roses and Enjoy the Parks by Portland Vacation Rentals

Even though Portland is Oregon's most populous city, it has as its claim to fame being America's most environmentally friendly city. Green space planning was implemented as far back as 1903 and since 1995, the city has been actively acquiring key natural areas to be used for the preservation of fish and wildlife and for recreational use by its residents. Portland has both the largest and smallest park in the U.S. Forest park is the largest wilderness area, covering more than 5,000 acres within city limits. The smallest is Mills End Park; it is a mere two feet in diameter.

The climate is perfectly suited to growing roses and Portland is also often referred to as the "City of Roses." There are several beautifully sculpted gardens in the city and one of the most famous is the International Rose Test Garden. Rows upon rows of magnificent blooms can be seen here and a stroll through the garden is very worthwhile. The Portland Japanese Garden is another great place to visit if you appreciate horticulture. The bridges, waterfalls and carefully cultured and sculpted gardens create a wonderfully serene environment.
