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. The home sleeps seven. Bedroom one has a queen sized bed and walk in closet. Bedroom two 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 upstairs bathroom, shared by the three bedrooms, is very large and has a bathtub/shower. The downstairs bath is off of the family room and has a walk-in shower.

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 and walking trails. The University of Portland campus is .6 miles away 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 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 Garden House is THE place for a unique experience. We weW

  • 5 of 5

We didn't meet Charissa & Miles but we felt we knew them through their attention to details and the way they created warmth and hospitality. They had everything we could have wanted without guessing where it was. Comfortable beds, a cooks

dream of a kitchen and good water pressure. If I had to guess Charissa is "Earth mother."

Lovely character home in great location

  • 5 of 5

Charissa's home is great - a charming house with all the amenities we needed; full kitchen, lots of beds, laundry, yard for the kids and large dining table. It's in a great location, only a short stroll to the bus stop, shops and cafes and a fantastic park and splash pad.

Charissa is an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Great for families!

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect respite for me and my family. My daughter loved having room to play, and was quite fond of the cat! It is a perfectly situated house; in a quiet neighborhood. We would love to stay here again!

Much like being at home

  • 5 of 5

Large, comfortable home outfitted with everything a person could possibly need. A mix of old and new, leaves little to be desired. Lots of room for a larger family or hosting a gathering. Most everything that matters has been updated and functions perfectly. If I visit Portland again, this home will be at the top of my list of places to stay.

Interesting home

  • 4 of 5

We recently had a 4 night stay at the Grand Garden Home in Portland with our 2 granddaughters (ages 15 & 21). We arrived after dark and had a little trouble getting in due to no working porch light. I had a small flashlight which saved the day. The house was very large and comfortable except for the kids bunk bed room. The top bunk was too close to the ceiling for either of our grandchildren. The bottom bunk is simply a mattress on the floor. It was comfortable enough, according to our granddaughter, but a little weird sleeping on the floor. The futon in the room was too small for her even though she is pretty small. The kitchen is well stocked. It was sad that the Keurig did not work. We had bought pods, but when we tried the brewer, it wouldn't work. We really enjoyed the games available and the porch swing. I must say that the highlight was the very friendly kitty that greeted us at the gate when we arrived and each morning at the front door. He was very sweet! All-in-all, a very comfortable home that we would stay in again.
