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.

A perfect place for families with kids!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Grand Garden Home for 5 days with some friends of ours. There were two couples, with three kids among us. The Grand Garden Home was perfect! There were toys for the kids, cribs for those who needed it, a high chair, a nice big kitchen and den with a magnificent couch. The location in a very nice, quiet NE side neighborhood worked well for us. We couldn't have picked a better place for this trip!

Wonderful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed here for a few days while on our annual sisters' trip. The house is older but we felt very comfortable and the owners had all the amenities we could ever want. The location was perfect for our day trips around the Portland area (easy access to freeways) and the neighborhood was perfect for late afternoon walks. We really enjoyed "Frankie," the fluffy neighborhood cat! He was always there to greet us when we came back to the house. We would definitely stay here again!
