About the property

Our charming 1903 foursquare is the perfect getaway for families or work groups. Located in a convenient spot for drivers or folks using public transit - you can really sink into the real side of Portland here!

This lovely Portland home sits high on a corner lot absorbing light through its many original windows. Featuring a big, open kitchen, dining room table for six, comfortable living room, two bathrooms and one old clawfoot tub, king green latex bed, queen green latex bed and futon sofa sleeper. The yard has a ton of flowers much of the year. Come out and enjoy the yard with coffee in the Adirondack chairs on the deck or eat a meal at the outdoor dining table. You are welcome to pick a bouquet while you are here! There are trimmers and vases in the Hoosier cabinet. With room for the whole family - we are perfect for your long or short-term stay in Portland!

In addition to normal amenities, this house has a high chair, baby gates, toys, books, kids dishes, a pack n' play, and baby gates on the deck for safe outdoor play while the parents make meals within eyesight. Quiet, residential neighborhood located just off of Martin Luther King, Jr - we are close to Alberta and Mississippi neighborhoods and about 15 minutes by car from downtown or 7 minutes from the Oregon Convention Center! Walk just a few blocks to Nike's new bike rental program, Biketown! Our home is also just across the street from the Portland Playhouse and two blocks from the King neighborhood farmer's market. A perfect start to your weekend morning!


PLEASE NOTE- There is a second listing in the basement and, although you are staying in a private space with no shared spaces (except the yard), you are sharing the structure. Because of this we have quiet hours that we ask that guests respect (10 pm - 8 am). If you plan on having late gatherings or early morning disco parties on the main floor, this is probably not your space.

Guests will have access to the entire home except for the basement area. Sorry, no washer or dryer - check out Portland's best laundromat just minutes away - Spin! They have fast machines with card readers, textable features, free soap, snacks, and even beer/wine!

Older home, well-equipped with all you need, close to Alberta Arts district.

  • 4 of 5

Hospitable host, very clean home with cool updated kitchen. On a fairly busy street, so traffic noise is present. Steep stairs to upstairs bedrooms, all baby-proofed, but definitely a tripping hazard. Probably not suitable for older individuals or those with mobility issues. Very cozy master suite with gas fireplace and king bed. Back yard would be cool when the weather is good.

Comfortable, spacious two-bedroom in East Portland

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice place to call home during our recent visit to Portland. Spacious, attractive and welcoming. Good for two couples or a family. Beds were super comfortable. We found the listing to be quite accurate and reliable about what to expect. The owner and property manager were very friendly and easy to work with. It is close to great coffee haunts, shopping, awesome coop for groceries. We would definitely recommend this rental and hope to be able to stay again in the future. Great find!

Quintessential Portland

  • 4 of 5

Our favorite thing about visit Portland is its charm. This home is exactly that. Charming. The location is great, just a few blocks from groceries and Alberta street. It's a great location to just about anywhere in Portland. The house was clean and we had all the needed bedding and toiletries. I just wished we did this trip while the weather is nice and the days are long. It was a little cold in the house and we didn't feel safe leaving the space heater running during the night in the kids' room. Be sure to close the doors when showering as the steam sets off the fire alarm (the hosts are certainly attentive to safety in this home). Just wished we had more time.
