After styling and art directing photo shoots for Rejuvenation Lighting and House Parts, finally being able to dial our own place was like playing in a sandbox. Joyfully styled bedrooms include queen, double and twin hide-a-bed in the study (that can be made into a queen). The kitchen is fully appointed with All-Clad, gas range, Cusinart, blender and microwave. And, should you decide you don't feel like walking next door for a cappuccino, we have at least three ways you can make your own coffee. Then sip on the back deck in a quiet backyard. We love the art we have collected over the years and left much of it in the house for you to enjoy during your stay.
There is a 52' HDTV, Wifi, Broadband, Apple TV, and Aperion home theater system.
Our house is registered with the City of Portland as an Accessory Short-Term Rental.
Our ASTR Permit number is 15-185134-000-00-HO.
We grew up in Oregon – Nicole in Roseburg, Don in Portland – and have been fortunate enough to watch Portland come into its own. A very European city. Family friendly, but urbane enough to keep us excited to live here and build a thriving design practice.
We love to travel. We love the people we meet when we do. Travel expands our minds and revives our souls.
Our goal is to provide an ideal home for you and yours to have a wonderful vacation experience. To that end, we have made a conscious decision to furnish our home with higher quality cookware, bedding and other lovely doodads that make a home a wonderful place to stay.
We hope this house becomes the home of many wonderful memories for years to come.
Property Manager / Owner purchased this house in 2004
We bought this house several years ago after we had purchased and renovated a small building next door for our design studio. We intended it to be a long-term rental, but Don liked it enough to move himself with his daughter.
Since then, Williams Avenue has just blossomed with restaurants, shops, bakeries, coffee, food carts, parks and more.
Now his daughter grown. This sweet house is an empty nest. Don is looking for a home outside the city. It's time to share it with those who want to experience Portland.
We love the place and have kept it pretty much the way it was while living there – including much of the art. It is homey, family friendly and smack dab in middle of several wonderful neighborhoods, all worth exploring.
I chose this location because it was close to my brother. It was also close to a LOT of amenities within walking distance. The home was the perfect size for our party of three, but also accommodating to more on the nights we opted to stay in and cook at home. Don, the home owner, was very nice and made sure we had all the supplies we needed there. We were able to wash clothes too, which helps out with my tendency to overpack. I hope to return to Portland again, and when I do, I'd stay here again! Thanks Home Away!
Enjoy baked goods and coffee at Phillipe's Bread, eat at Lincoln's, buy sustenance at New Market, cocktails at Box Social, beer at 5th Quadrant! All within walking distance from this charming, warm and inviting house. Great host who provides wonderful suggestions and readily available! Thanks, Don!
Returned to this house for our annual Holiday Ale Festival trip and despite how great the area was last year, it's even better this year. Don is a great host and is there if you need anything from him, we didn't take much more than a dinner recommendation but that recommendation was spot on. When looking around Portland for a 3 bedroom house in a good area with lots to do and easy access to downtown I just don't see a better value anywhere. Great house, very comfortable and well supplied. Love all the transit options and the many restaurants and taphouses.
This house was so perfect for our trip. It was a 10 minute Uber to our event, and the neighborhood was great, with the brewery nearby, and Phillipe's, and the grocery store, we didn't need to go elsewhere. Thank you to our wonderful hosts for allowing us to stay.
We so enjoyed our stay at the house on Williams Ave. It was comfortable and we could walk everywhere. It was close to all of the wedding events that we were in Portland for. Thanks so much Don for providing a great place to stay..
We had a pleasant experience staying in Don's place. He was easy to get in touch with and extra accommodating. It was in a great location. No problem with parking. Cozy and comfortable beds. We would definitely stay again.
The Mississippi/Boise Neighborhood is one of the most energetic neighborhoods in Portland. Two doors from our house you can enjoy one of the city's best new bakeries where Phillippe makes all his breads with only wild yeasts, and pastry chef Alissa Frice creates superb pastries and desserts that make us sigh and giggle with each bite. The bakery baristas were trained by Sterling Roasters.
Next door to Phillippe's is Lardo's newest location, where Chef Rick Gencerelli serves up killer pork sandwiches and salads and dozens of the region's best beers.
Two blocks away you will find our favorite restaurant on earth – Lincoln Restaurant (Jenn Louis was one of Food and Wine Magazine's ten best new chefs in the US in 2012). There are many lovely shops including Lark Press (lovely letterpress and Woodblock Chocolate), Ristretto Roasters and their single origin espresso, expert but friendly baristas and rotating art shows, Ink and Peat (singular florist and home shop), Hopworks and Lompoq brewpubs, Tasty 'n Sons, Chop Butchers and New Seasons, the area's locally owned sustainable grocers. Walk six blocks and you are in the heart of the Mississippi neighborhood with dozens of shops, restaurants, bars, food carts and more.
Williams Avenue is the most active bike commuting route in the United States. This can be particularly entertaining from two comfy porch chairs each June during Portland's Naked Bike Ride.
Next door, peak in the fifteen foot high window at The Felt Hat, a local design office to see what the latest bespoke installation they are creating, testing or playing with.
Living on Williams has been living in the heart of Portland culture. We love it here and hope you do as well.
