Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautiful 1908 Craftsman home (Garden view unit) in the heart of one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Portland! You will never stay in a nicer garden view unit! This is urban living at it's finest. Beautiful high historic end homes, gorgeous tree lined boulevards, wonderful people, and extremely close to many wonderful restaurants and shopping. This is one of the best neighborhoods in Portland without a doubt. The wonderful and energetic neighborhoods of Sabin, Alameda, Eliot, King, Grant Park, Sullivan's Gulch and Lloyd Center all surround Historic Irvington, but she is the Grand Dame of them all!

Irvington Neighborhood is on the national register of historic places, and it is very central. You can get anywhere in Portland within 10 minutes. A car is not absolutely necessary, walk to the MAX (transportation system - 10 minutes) and the bus line is around the corner. You are a 5-10 minute walk from literally 20 restaurants! 5 minutes walking to Lloyd Center and 8 minute walk to the Rose Quarter. Downtown is a 7 minute drive or 9 minutes on the MAX.

Your basement unit is almost 500 square feet and has been completely restored. The sofa folds down to sleep a total of 4.

The vast majority of the vacation rentals in Portland operate illegally, but this house has the coveted 'Conditional Use' permit ( # 08-175885-000-00-LU)that the city requires in order to run a vacation rental for short term stays.

Our caretakers live onsite, tucked away in an apartment on the main level. Feel free to ask them for help at anytime.

This apartment is extremely well furnished, with everything you need to make your stay wonderful, giving you maximum comfort. Large windows ensure the unit is well lit, and a brand new hydroponic heating system ensures warmth on cold nights. Stainless steel appliances, travertine countertops, wireless internet, a 30' flat screen TV, DVD player and a Bose Stereo give you the luxuries that you have in your own home! Your own illuminated, private entrance on the side of the house guarantees you complete privacy.

The backyard is available for the guests of this unit. It comes complete with an herb garden(for your cooking pleasure) pergola and built in stainless steel BBQ and sink. Enjoy Portland's weather in complete privacy.

A raised herb and vegetable garden on the south side of the house is available to you.

You will get our personal recommendations for shopping, dining and activities and complimentary coffee and tea.

This is our part time home, and we absolutely love it. We guarantee you will feel the same. Come and be part of our family as you sample all that Irvington Neighborhood and Portland have to offer!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Portland

I have always loved the Pacific Northwest, though my daughter, family and my business are in Phoenix. Most of my maternal family is from this area, and many relatives still live near here.

My mother was born in Vancouver, WA and used to come down to the Lloyd Center to shop with her mother when she was very young. She has fond memories of this place. When she first saw this house and this neighborhood, she literally cried.

I have always had a great time here. I love the neighborhood. I love my neighbors and the general vibe that Portland has. I love the people, and even the weather(most of the time) I love the fact that you can go hiking or biking in the AM, and be back in time for lunch at a fabulous restaurant. I love that nothing looks the same, that everything is unique.

What makes this apartment unique

I guess I could go on and on, but I really like the urban lifestyle. You can walk anywhere from the Irvington Neighborhood. The gardens and yards are just unbelievable. There are tons of great restaurants and coffee shops everywhere you turn. Portland is such a great destination in every way, and I think Irvington neighborhood is the crown jewel of it all.

I have put tons of money and my heart and soul into this property, and I think and hope it shows. I hope you enjoy this house as much as I do.

Great basement apartment, cozy and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I to Portland for a girls weekend in early September. We stayed at the Irving house in the basement apartment and had a great time using public transportation, seeing the city and rent a car one day to travel to the beach as well. The location was perfect with plenty of little things around the house and a quick commute to downtown. The basement apartment was nicely equipped with everything that we needed during our stay, and Emma was wonderful and provided us with additional bus passes when we needed them. This room was perfect for my friends and I who are both petite women however a taller person may not be as comfortable in this space as they would in one of the available spaces upstairs. Overall I would definitely book this location again for another trip either with my friends or family without any hesitation and expect a delightful experience.

Irvington garden apartment👍👍

  • 5 of 5

I would give Irvington garden apartment 4.5 stars. Clean, comfortable. Walking distance to restaurants and Safeway grocery store (15 min walk). Convenient bus-line at the end of the block. Beautiful neighborhood and we felt safe. Apartment caregiver (Emma) was only a phone call away and easy to reach. All the comforts of home. No complaints and only 1 recommendation: attach the step carpets to the steps leading to the apartment. I would definitely stay here again if we come back to Portland. Owner Mark was easy to work with.👍👍

Low ceilings don't work for guests over 6 feet

  • 3 of 5

This is a cute, convenient apartment, but my husband is 6-foot-6 and repeatedly hit his head on the low-hanging ceiling in the bedroom. For the price, we expected a room where he could stand upright.

Great location and nice basement apartment

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was in a beautiful old neighborhood, and it was walking distance (30 minute walk, but I like to walk) to the convention center. It was also very convenient to the number 8 bus line, and this bus goes both downtown and to the tri-met station. This review would have been five stars except for the very unpleasant cat box smell in the basement. It was quickly remedied by opening all of the windows, but because the weather was hot, the windows were closed during the afternoon while I was out, and the smell would return.
