This charming home is a duplex and the top floor of the house is occupied by your hosts, Tijana (Teeyanna) and Milos (Meelosh), their daughter Nita and son Filip, who live in a completely separate apartment.

The entire 1,000 sf main level, with the separate entrance, has been recently updated and offers a spacious and stylish living room, fashionable bedroom, cozy dining room, charming kitchen with the original wood cabinets, luxurious bathroom and a fabulous, private back yard that offers utter relaxation in the center of the city.

For your convenience we provide wi fi, flat screen HDTV with cable, DVD player and CD player/stereo system. A comfortable pull out sofa bed (with an air mattress) in the living room is provided to accommodate additional guests.

The bedroom is outfitted with quality furniture, tranquil queen sized bed and luxurious bedding. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking and baking needs. There is also a BBQ in the backyard. If additional, specialty items are needed just ask in advance. Pre-stocking the refrigerator before your arrival is also available.

Please ask us for activity recommendations.

The house will be thoroughly cleaned before you arrive. Full or partial cleaning service is available during your stay for an additional charge. We use only environmentally conscious cleaning products.

This apartment is centrally located in a quiet, historic neighborhood. Shopping and restaurant within walking distance and quick mass transit are big benefits of this urban oasis. The back yard is a perfect peaceful break in the middle of the city.

Very nice comfortable quiet apartment within walking distance of many cafes and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen is well stocked and easy to use. The bedroom is large with a very comfortable bed. The living room has large windows lending a great feeling to the space. The back yard is great for sitting and talking. It is a wonderful place to stay.

Comfy and welcoming

  • 4 of 5

Tijana and family are wonderful hosts, their property is dog friendly and nicely laid out.

There are towels for pups, and an awesome yard for them to run in.

- When wet, the wood porch is slick! It is noted in a sign on the back door.

The washer and dryer were gratefully and regularly used.

They have a dish washer! That works! That runs quietly! I am in awe, no dishes to wash daily. (In my many rental experienes, this is unheard of in a short term rental.)

The kitchen setup works well for cooking and reheating. (I might add a hand-held mixer and a few more sharp/steak type knives ... we shared the one while eating.)

The property lacks only: a mat at the back door (we tracked in so many fir needles) and a trash can in the kitchen/mud room area (half of our waste was in non-recyclable containers, unfortunately). The ability to recycle and compost were wonderful.

Parking was never an issue and the location is well placed for easy access throughout the Portland and Vancouver metroplexes.

We had a personal tragedy befall our family during our stay, since we could not get home, this was the second best place to mourn.

Highly recommended.

Great spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

The place makes a great first impression! Back yard was fantastic, twinkly lights and all. Great location - fantastic coffee (Saint Simon) close by - groceries, restaurants, everything! We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend - the kitchen was great for all our turkey dinner prep! Parking was a cinch too! We'd definitely stay here again!

Lovely home in historic neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I and our two dogs had a lovely stay in this well appointed and comfortable main floor suite. Irvington is a convenient and beautiful Portland neighborhood. The morning and evening dog walks allowed us to explore the fabulous heritage homes in this surprisingly quiet area, but if you do have dogs head out to Thousand Acres for the trails and river.

The hosts provide all the conveniences for a comfortable stay and Tijana was responsive prior to and during our visit. Street parking was always available and we loved walking to nearby restaurants (ie. Pocket Pub). I highly recommend this rental.

Clean and Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in this Irvington home. My sister and I met here for a weekend and we really enjoyed our stay. The property was clean and spacious, and parking was easily available. Tijana quickly responded to any questions we had during our stay. My sister forgot a necklace there, and she promptly mailed it to her. I would definitely stay here again.
