Why The Owner chose Portland

We own two homes in this area, so this is our 'extra house'. This is one of the original upscale neighborhoods in Portland established in the 1870's, always in high demand due its unique character and closeness to downtown.

What makes this house unique

Very close to all the action, music, theaters and restaurants in downtown Portland. Great walk to Council Crest Park with 360 degree view from the hilltop, lots of bike friendly paths. Near a great neighborhood market with Gourmet food, Wine (liquor) and deli.

Nice place with lots of room

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed this stay very much. It was a nice area with wonderful views. The only downside was that the bus was for commuters and so only ran in the morning and evening hours, but it was only a short walk (downhill) to the max. We used Lyft to get back up if we needed to.

Nice neighborhood & amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We found the house great with navigation. Parking was never an issue. The house itself was incredible, from the furniture, the decor, and everything in between. Such a fun old house in Portland that was very clean and accommodating. We loved our stay and enjoyed every minute! The owners were great to work with.

Funky, interesting location. An initial problem hooking up to internet, which was fixed in a timely manner. TMobile cell coverage inconsistent.

Accommodates whole family!

  • 4 of 5

It was enjoyable staying at this fun house. My whole family had a place to sleep. Very close to down town with plenty of street parking. Thanks! Water pressure was a little low upstairs but downstairs shower was a fine backup.

Good, but could be great!

  • 4 of 5

Dang you VRBO, for not letting me give something 3.5 stars, because that is what I want to give this property.

I wanted to like this place more than I actually did. The bones of the house, the layout of the house, and above all, the furniture and décor of the house were perfect, and perfect for each other.

There was plenty of space for our family to get away from each other after our first day spent cramped in the car.

This is an older house, and the longer you look, the more you can see signs of that age in some places. Or rather, as my wife said, the upgrading is very targeted. The kitchen is splendid and the den and sitting room were very nice...but, some corners and alcoves were...less pristine. Not a huge deal to us, but if you were spitting the pace with picky in-laws, they would point it out.

Continuing with negative to get that out of the way: Water pressure in the showers was NO good...and the cable...we got the Direct TV to work, but I could only get 2 channels to come in. Luckily, we brought our laptop and an HDMI cable, so, we had Netflix and Amazon need to plan ahead to that.

Final Negatives: If you are going to advertise having a full washer/dryer available, they probably shouldn't be full of sheets when someone goes to use them. someone else pointed out...this is not a house to rent if someone in your group has mobility issues. From the one street parking, it is about 20 stairs down to the house.

So...I mean, I know that sounds like a lot of negatives for 4 stars...but, on the other hand, compared to other houses in the area, you are getting a lot of Square Footage for the cost. We had two adults and three kids, and space was never an issue. There was also a HUGE amount of spare towels and pillows/blankets available. While it was good for 6 or so people, I'm not sure I would recommend the house for toddlers...there are some steep inside stairs and wood furniture.

The final thing that caused me to go with 4 stars over 3(think 3.5 in your head though) was that we had out security deposit refunded within 24 hours of checking, that was very nice, and prompt.
