About the property

Large 3 bedroom, 2 bath in University Heights

This very large three bedroom, two bath home near the University of Portland is perfect for family gatherings or just as a comfortable home base while in Portland. The house features a formal dining room, living room, office that is laptop friendly, huge family room with cable TV, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, wrap around porch, BBQ, and a large yard with fruit trees and grape arbor. It is an old house with lots of charm and mix-matched style.

The home sleeps six. Bedroom #1 has a queen sized bed and 2 walk-in closets. Bedroom #2 also has a queen bed with a large walk-in closet. Bedroom three has a bunk bed (two twins) and a twin fold-out futon. The fold out futon is only comfortable for smaller children. The upstairs bathroom, shared by the three bedrooms, is very large and has a bathtub/shower combination. The downstairs bath is off of the family room and has a walk-in shower. There are games, toys, and books for small children. We also have two pack-n-play cribs for infants if needed. This home does not have air conditioning.

Guests have 24 hour access to the property via a key lock box.

The house is located in a beautiful residential neighborhood. There is plenty of street parking in front of the house. Columbia Park is two blocks away and has a playground, splash pad, swimming pool, and walking trails. The University of Portland campus is .6 miles away (about 10 blocks) and is a lovely walk along Willamette Blvd. which has a view of downtown Portland. The nearest grocery store is New Seasons and is one mile away at 6300 N Lombard Ave. Another large grocery store, Fred Meyer, is 1.3 miles from the house at 6850 N Lombard Ave.

Traveling north on N. Lombard St. just 2 miles will bring you to the quaint neighborhood of St. Johns with a variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs, and parks.

There are bee hives in a corner of the yard. Although, for the most part they keep to themselves, if you are severely allergic to bee stings we strongly recommend that you take appropriate measures, such as bringing an EpiPen with you. Please do not disturb the hives. They are being cared for by a qualified neighbor.

There is also a large orange, super friendly cat associated with the property. This cat is also cared for by a neighbor and there is no need to worry about him, but he is not allowed inside the house. His name is Frankie. He is great with kids and is very gentle. All he wants is pets.

The house met our needs.

Location to U of P was great! House was very clean and homey. Outside needed a lot of cleaning & maintenance. Met our needs for the weekend. Host was most helpful!

We loved the garden home! It was a fantastic location for visiting family near Univ of Portland and had everything we could want available. Very charming home and easy communication with the owner.

Fit our needs

  • 5 of 5

The rental house was great for our group of 6 (2 Adults & 4 teenage gymnasts). It is an older house, nothing fancy but comfortable. The two queen beds were comfortable. Two of the girls opted to stay on the couch in the living room verses in the bunk setup as they didn't find the bottom mattress on the floor comfortable (the pictures did accurately represent the set-up). The upstairs bathroom was quite large and allowed all 4 girls to get ready for their gymnastics meet at the same time. There were plenty of towels in stock. The kitchen is large and had all the cookware you need to prepare meals. There is a wood slab with a lip in the kitchen under the trash can. All of us tripped on it a few times. There was plenty of space to walk around it that may have been just us! There were a ton of blankets & pillows. Overall it was a good stay no problems or surprises!

Spacious home at a great price!

The owners were great to work with and the home was nicely decorated. We slept better than normal on a very comfy bed. Will definitely plan to come back.

Great place for a family gathering

  • 4 of 5

We were in Portland to visit our children who have moved out west and the grand garden home was a great place to congregate and hang out with our family. The house is large, spacious and very comfortable. The enormous couch in the TV room is awesome! The house is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.
