About the property

Completely private detached entire home. A modern design oasis nestled between forests of bamboo and pine yet steps to restaurant row on both Williams and Mississippi. This house has been carefully architected down to the last detail: light filled with over a dozen windows yet all of them private / sky view or bamboo views! completely secluded and spacious and airy with 20 foot ceilings and everything you'd need. Sip coffee on your enclosed bamboo lined patio, walk to Portland's best foodie restaurants and shops! Mere Steps to restaurant row on N Williams and Shaver and bustling bars shops restaurants on Mississippi. Full kitchen, new bath, genuine mid century furniture and (real) art by local artists and a location that can't be beat! You are in for a true Portland experience here! I have lots of tips and recommendations too, but only if you need them: It would be my pleasure to host you! (note, all of the photos of restaurants, shops and bars are all less than 5 min walk away!)

About The Owner

I'm a designer here in portland and live with my sweet husband Tom and our boy Felix. Tom and I are originally from Canada and proud to call Portland home. We love making, cooking and enjoying this super fun neighborhood!

Why The Owner chose North Portland

Well, it's hard to beat finding your own peaceful little house in the middle of all that Williams and Mississippi have to offer! Portland is just the right size, you're never more than a 5-10 min drive or bike ride from anything! And if you need anything during your stay, Tom and I are just steps away in the big house. We built this one you're looking at less than a year ago, it was a passion project for both of us, and are super excited to share it with people wanting to visit our wonderful city! All the windows have been strategically placed to ensure ultimate privacy with lush views of trees and greenery. There's plenty of free street parking out front also!

What makes this house unique

Quiet little sancutuary after a full day of exploring and eating some of the best food out there! Also has a nice little private patio out back with string lights, if you just want to kick it and stay in

Very Clean and beautifully furnished

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I loved the house. It had a wonderful location we were very close to everything we wanted to do. The bed was super comfortable as was the rest of the furnishings. Portland had amazing food. The people we met were really nice. Definitely would stay here again. I have stayed at many vacation rentals and this one is one of the top ones. Very worth the $.

A nice stay in portland

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very clean, comfortable, with modern decor. No microwave, but every other appliance. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental. It is also located in an area with plenty of restaurants and a nice grocery market.

Clean, comfortable Portland get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our time in this space. It's just perfect for two, had all the comforts of home. The proximity to things was great, and uber rides were cheap from this spot heading into areas like Pearl District. We would stay again, bed was comfy and property was quiet. A great relaxing place to recharge. We loved the retro touches too, and the cool art. Beautiful place.
