About Lisa Gillis

About us: Bill is an avid snowboarder, brew master of fine Belgium beers, loves the outdoors for backpacking, cycling and 'unrestricted' space and by 'day' he is a Psychologist working with a large Medical Corporation heading up their specialty division. Lisa is a lover of all things re: the home, baking, gardening, and construction/home remodeling. She is a breast cancer survivor, a Pilates and Aerobics instructor and by 'day' (evenings, weekends, 24/7!) is a realtor in Southern California. They live in Southern CA in a tiny cottage, that has a big yard with lots of animals and a vegetable garden where they grow organic foods to share and enjoy. They both went to UCLA which is where they met (on a blind date!) and fell in love and have been married 21 years. They have no children, but love being an uncle and aunt and have many friends with kids whom they adore. They feel blessed everyday and in many ways..

Lisa Gillis purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lisa Gillis chose Portland

We decided to buy at the Pearl when we took a trip to Portland in late 2004 and fell in love with it all..the people, the urban and eclectic mix of restaurants, art and music. We loved the waterfront view of this property in particular as you can walk right outside our unit and down a few steps to the path. There is so much to do and enjoy in Portland, and being that Bill is an avid 'brew master' himself, Portland most certainly is a wonderful place for us to be!

What makes this condo unique

Too many to list..walk to everything! restaurants, shops, Saturday Market, First Thursday..walk, bike, run. Visit the local Farmer's Market and be your own chef in the fully equipped kitchen. Or just do nothing at all and watch the river flow just outside your's just spectacular..

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay in this beautiful condo overlooking the water. Lots of amenities and right in the heart of the desirable Pearl District. Within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the train station. I loved it and will be staying there again

A happy experience

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in this apartment. I especially liked the view over the river from the front room & from the terrace. I spent a good deal of time on the terrace, enjoying meals & watching the boats on the river. (Friends who came to visit enjoyed the view, too!) Another attractive feature of the condo is that it is very conveniently located for those who like walking or jogging on the path along the waterfront (just steps away), & anyone who is reasonably fit can easily walk to downtown Portland.

I found the apartment generally comfortable & conveniently outfitted, furnishing everything that one could reasonably expect - & more. The kitchen was well-appointed (which was important to me, as I had guests over for some meals), & there were ample supplies of all sorts - cleaning supplies, bathroom items, dishes, a variety of spices, even scotch tape. The bed was comfortable, too.

Lisa, the owner, was wonderfully kind & patient & helpful at every stage. I am not young & this greatly contributed to my enjoying my stay.

Great location and amazing condo!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Portland for a month and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The condo is situated right on the water and a short walk along the riverfront to the Saturday markets. It is also a short walk over to Union Station and you're right in the Pearl District, where there are tons of great shops, restaurants, and breweries. The fire pit was a nice ammenity, which I used on a couple occasions. Everything is within walking distance from this condo and it is well stocked too. There is a corner market for any additional items you may need. I like running and it was really nice to walk out the front door and the riverfront path is right there! This place can't be beat.

A Wonderful Portland Trip

  • 5 of 5

My group of 3 had a great time at Lisa's condo in Portland. We were provided a queen air mattress at our request, and this will now be available for future guests (it's self-inflating and very comfortable!). The location is beautiful as it sits right by the river. We spent almost every late evening outside by the fire pit with a few beers. The location is great for walking almost anywhere in Northern Portland. We needed a car for a ski trip, so the free covered parking spot was very appreciated and very close to the condo. A couple of my local friends stopped by for a few drinks, and they were very impressed with the digs. I highly recommend staying here! Our hosts were very accessible via email, and all instructions were very minimal and straightforward.

Perfect for the Pearl

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Portland, and the condo location worked perfectly for us. We enjoyed using public transportation and had ready access for all the sights we had planned...and a few we hadn't. The water with tugs, barges and pleasure boats made for great viewing. Lisa and Bill were very helpful when we had a few questions. Between perfect weather, location and lots to do it was a memorable trip!

Beautiful & Cozy Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo is just as pictured & it was very clean. The bed is very comfortable to sleep on. We had a few relatives come by for dinner on our last nite here (we stayed 3 nites) & they all raved about the view & location right on the river. We walked to the Saturday Market (very nearby) as well as around the Pearl District & downtown. It was our first trip to Portland & we would definitely come again & stay here! Highly recommend. Thank you!

Wonderful Waterfront Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in your very well appointed apartment. We had everything we needed and more. It was fabulous to look out at the river and see people and boats and great fun to hear the trains on the Steel Bridge. A walk down the river pathway took us to the Saturday & Sunday market - a great place with many talented local artists. Walking 'inland' over the walkway and past the bus station took us into the Pearl District and Downtown. We did a food cart tour one day with Eat Adventures and that was great - not only giving us the opportunity to sample some great food but also a way to see different parts of the city. Since this was a road trip for us, it was so nice to have a parking spot and even better was the very easy access in and out of Portland. Thanks Lisa and Bill!!
