  • Great vacation spot

    "Such a great location to explore Portland from! Exactly as described, the condo was within walking distance to everywhere you'd want to go within the city and easy access to the Max. Tony was great to deal with and provided a ton of information to help us get acclimated to the location. The hardest part was leaving on the last day"

  • The Perfect VRBO!

    "My husband and I loved this VRBO! It was decorated beautifully and supplied with everything we needed. The location is amazing with streetcar access right near by. The view of the river and downtown was lovely. We honestly hated to leave and I will definitely try to stay there again. The owner is easy to get ahold of and so very helpful in answering any questions and accommodating your needs. The concierge is friendly and helpful. So convenient to pick things up at a very well stocked little store right below…you'd be hard pressed to find a better place in the South Waterfront area as well as being so close to the downtown by streetcar (such fun to ride) to enjoy all Portland has to offer."

  • Nice condo in great location.

    "First of all, the owner, James, responded quickly to the booking request. Much appreciated. The condo is in probably the best part of Portland, with lots to see and do. Many grocery stores, restaurants, and museums within walking distance. The condo is clean, well kept, quiet, and comfortable. This is my go-to stop for visits to Portland. As to the trains nearby, we were out most of the day, but noise was not an issue. Train noise was no problem in the evening, never heard it. Thank you James."

  • A Perfect Home While in Portland

    "My husband and I were thrilled to be a part of our daughter and son-in-law's move into their new home during the Thanksgiving week. Having this great home just eight blocks away from their new house gave us our own space, yet made it easy to be part of their exciting move. The home is exceptional in every respect--furnishings, comfort, and care from Michelle, the owner. We hope to return to stay on our next trip to see the kids and grandkids!"

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. 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.
