  • Perfect for several couples plus a baby

    "A group of us needed a place to stay for a family wedding. I wanted something quintessential Portland (big Victorian like, flowery yard, quirky). This was it! Big house. We had 3 couples, one single guy and a baby. There was still lots of room for everyone. We didn't even need the cool basement which would be perfect for kids, teens, another couple. The house had cool wood vintage touches with modern conveniences. Street parking was easy. Close to so many cool neighborhoods. You could walk or take cheap taxi to different areas (perfect for after the reception). The owner was available, responsive and made us feel very welcome. Definitely would recommend this place for multiple couples, big families. We really loved this place and are really glad we sought it out."

  • For a Fantastic Stay in Portland

    "First time Portland visitors, with dogs, and this house was fantastic. The location is walking distance to a park and to restaurants (go to Pok Pok!!) if you are willing to go a few miles. It is also only a 10 minute drive to everything we went to do from the urban areas, to quaint eating spots, to hiking Mt. Taber. The house itself is a good size and could accommodate a large party even though we were only 2 humans and 3 dogs. The yard is fully fenced with no holes for escapes and very private which is nice. We never heard noise from the shared wall with another unit even though we know someone was staying there. The house was incredibly clean. The furnishings, decor, and paint were all so interesting. The beds very comfortable (slept in both bedrooms just to try them out). I really want to know the paint color in the downstairs bathroom so I can steal it for my own house! Kitchen has all the supplies you could need (even the dishware is pretty), however not many fridge or pantry items (some VRBO places I have stayed have a ton of stuff people have left) so come prepared with food or be ready to shop if staying in. Loved that the downstairs bathroom had a clawfoot for soaking and the upstairs shower was a walk in with two heads. The place has upgrades like Nest for the thermostat and Roku on the tv (even though it was missing for our stay). Communication with the owner was quick and the rental paperwork was easy. A few reasons I have to take away a star (mostly personal preference, not actual issues): while the stairs are beautiful and different they were quite difficult for one of my small dogs (no backs to the stair steps and no banister) to go up (had to carry him up) and the other small dog kept looking like he wanted to jump off the side, the only upstairs bedroom window had no screen and the window itself is flush with the floor so having it open would have created a safety hazard for the dogs if open (dealt with this by putting something in front of it), and a faint pet smell (maybe cat?) in the front room likely form the rug (I'm ridiculously scent sensitive, but my bf said he never noticed it)."

Things to Do in Portland

Washington Park: Washington Park is one of the oldest in Portland and was purchased by the city in 1871. Cougar used to roam what is now the park, and thick brush and timber covered the land. Since then its been transformed into an outdoor play land for people of all ages. You'll find a number of attractions in the park, including a bronze statue of Sacajawea as well as the Lewis and Clark Memorial. At the center of Washington Way and Wright Avenue, you'll see the Oregon Holocaust Memorial featuring a stone bench near a cobblestone area that simulates a town square. Be sure to stop and see the wall of history panels that offer a brief look at the Holocaust and quotes from survivors. This historical site is also home to paved paths that are great for walking and jogging as well as a giant playground for children that includes a disabled access area.

Pittock Mansion: There's a story behind every house and the Pittock Mansion is no different. The structure was built in 1914 for the state's first and most influential families. It overlooks the city skyline and is a great place to learn about the history of Portland. Henry and Georgiana Pittock lived in the home during the 1900s and their work contributed to the growth of the city they called home. When you visit the mansion today it's full of family artifacts and a memorial to the Pittock family. Generations of the Pittock family lived in the home until 1958, and the home was opened to the public in 1965. Not only do you get a peek into the past of the Pittocks, but a look at how Portland became what it is today.

There's a sense of peace, harmony and tranquility in the garden - perfect if you're looking for a place to relax during your stay in Portland.
