  • Location location location!

    "This is our (spouse &me) second stay with Vladimir and it was just about perfect. I especially like the use of laundry facilities in both the places we have stayed. In February it was the property on westover. The studio was clean, linens fresh, and location a 10 minute walk from the streetcar and/or bus. And, this trip I really ventured ventured out more on the bus...felt like a real city girl!!!! In addition, my husband and I walked to a lot of the pearl area, voodoo donuts and experienced a lot of good food. I really recommend this place; if there is ever anything needed, Vladimir is Most cooperative And ready to help. Our next trip to pdx we will definitely stay with vlad's places."

  • Great weekend getaway

    "Thank you so much! We drove to Portland for a quick 2 night getaway from Vancouver, Canada. The cottage is located just a quick 10 min drive from the heart of DT. In addition, the neighborhoods that are close to the cottage SE Division etc.. have so much to explore, we only went into down a couple days. Best is they have bikes for you to use and explore the neighborhoods!! Great little loft rental- definitely willing to recommend + stay again. Only one small glitch by Homeaway when setting up our code for the lock box to get our key. We had 2 different people call for reservations and they used one ph# for the box but emailed us the wrong code. We arrived late (11pm) and had to fumble in the dark for 30 mins trying to figure out how to get in + call around and email to try to get access to property. We felt bad because it was late and didn't want to wake the neighbors. BUT the owners were amazing! They found out the issues we had and next day had a plate of brownies + cake with a sorry letter. Great care of their guest. Thank you."

  • Great spot for BB fans and Shopaholics who enjoy feeling a downtown city vibe

    "My daughter and I stayed here for the NCAA BB tournament. With the Moda Center only one stop away, the location was outstanding. For a Portland Trailblazers game, we even walked the bridge. We took the train from the airport; the directions late at night were a bit confusing. I recommend printing a walking route, especially if arriving after dark, to compliment what was provided. Access into the condo upon arrival is effectively orchestrated. The outdoor market on the waterfront on Saturday and Sunday was a "must" and a close walk! Voodoo Donuts and the magic of the Pearl District super close too. My husband and son joined us but we still felt the one bedroom offered enough room with the blow up mattress. Condo is super well stocked, comfortable and clean (though the couch could use some spot removal - tough in a rental unit). Nice balcony overlooking docks which are popular for local ducks. After seven nights, we got used to the trains. Bring ear plugs if night noise bothers you. Given Portland's warm weather, there is a high number of homeless towards Chinatown but the condo unit had active security ensuring access is provided to residents only. We drove to the outlet malls (45 minutes) and avoided the higher prices downtown. When we return to Portland, we will definitely try to stay here again. The unit would not get a "five star" rating from rich and famous evaluators but our overall experience was! Thank-you to the owners for offering this unit to tourists."

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.

Portland Japanese Garden: The Japanese Garden is comprised of 5.5 acres and five distinct garden styles. 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. The Flat Garden, Strolling Pond Garden, The Tea Garden and Sand and Stone Garden are influenced by Shinto, Buddhist and Taoist philosophies and composed of stone, water and plants.
