  • Perfect Getaway

    "Visited our family in Portland and rented this house for a week. The house was in a fantastic location (I was skeptical at first), within walking distance of tons of restaurants and small shopping stores. The porch was fantastic for enjoying the weather and all the foot-traffic... not many cars drive in this neighborhood. Was well suited to cater to pseudo-living, with Wifi, coffee pot, pots/pans/utensils, large fridge, etc... I my family really enjoyed the stay and, if we were to decide to do it again in the future, I'd likely try to use this house again."

  • Perfect Portland Stay!

    "This quintessential Portland house is located in a fantastic neighborhood. (I know because I lived in close-in Portland for six years.) The owners have clearly taken great care with the renovations. They have also gone above and beyond in making the house a wonderful stay for their guests. The place is absolutely spotless, and the bed and linens were great. Booking and check-in were super easy. We will definitely stay here again, and look forward to seeing the backyard garden in full bloom. Oh, and thanks for the bottle of wine!"

  • AMAZING CONDO IN IDEAL LOCATION!!!!!

    "I was very fortunate to find this amazing condo available to rent while I was in Portland for work. I was there for a little over two months and I can honestly say that it was hard to leave as I was traveling back home. The condo is very comfortable and has absolutely anything that a business/vacation traveler needs… and much more! The building is very quaint, and has a lot of character and is conveniently located right across the street from public transportation. The location could not have been better, as it is a few blocks away and walking distance from all the great bars and restaurants on 21st and 23rd, and also very close to grocery stores, coffee shops, gyms, the post office, multiple banks, and anything that one could ever need. I had the pleasure to meet some of the people living in the building and everyone is super friendly. I travel around the country for work quite a bit, and I can honestly say that this was one of my most enjoyable stays. Ellen was great to deal with. She is very responsive and answered my questions immediately. She was very flexible with me, as I had to postpone my departure time and just made my life a lot easier while I was there. This is THE place to stay when you are in Portland, and I will definitely be staying here again if I'm back in Portland."

  • Living large in the dream....

    "This is our second visit to Portland in a year....and we could think of no nicer place to stay than here at Sellwood. I am writing this review, from a very nice queen sized bed, looking out at the Columbia River. The accommodations are wonderful and hosts are very nice, Oregon style!"

Portland Travel Tips

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.
