About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Beautiful custom built, loft style apartment located in a Historic Portland Home (Emil Schact architect).

Our fully furnished 1 bedroom apt. is perfect for enoying all the city has to offer while giving you a peaceful enviormnet surrounded by custom built doors, reclaimed barn wood floors and enourmous windows that look out into green space.

Two flat screens, both w/dvd players (1 is blue ray) allows our guests the option of hanging out togehter or having some alone time.

You can sit outside on the covered front porch and have a glass of wine while barbecueing (gourmet food stores less the 5 minutes walking distance) while storing your outdoor gear in a private and secure storage area.

Your dog will love the opportunity to either hike up in Forest park or romp at the fully fenced dog park located 5 blocks away.

Walk or bike down to Powells (the largest bookstore in the world) the world class rose garden or if you are ambitious Voodoo doughnuts. Street parking is avialable, but public transportation is excellent and mere blocks away.

For the fans of our Mt. Hood VRBO rental (Camp Festivus, #313852) we are offering you our newest vision of the city we love. It's so nice, you might try to live here.

About The Owner

We moved from the bay area 11yrs ago and have not looked back

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

Why The Owner chose Portland

One day we went on a field trip with the kids class to the coast and played in the tide pools and later in the day were at the stream in the mountains after picking up excellent food in the city on our way up. Enough said.

What makes this apartment unique

You can enjoy as much city as you can handle or if you wish walk right up the road and be in Forest Park and completely isolated, fantastic.

Tastefully finished, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Nicely furnished apartment (private entry on lower level of older, well-maintained home in nice neighborhood) that is both off-the-beaten path yet close-in to downtown. Very cool plank floors, exposed concrete, and other urban-vibe finishes throughout. It is also just a few minute drive from Macleay Park, which connects to Forest Park (largest urban park in the country). We went running each day on incredible forested trails from various points of entry. We walked to Powells Books and other points downtown, but there are a number of high-end stores and good restaurants just a few minute walk from the apartment. Japanese Gardens and Rose Gardens are also a fairly short walk away. Owners were super helpful on the couple of occasions I needed assistance. Overall: a winner!

Beautiful Rustic Industrial Contemporary Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This happens to be my favorite place of all VRBOs. Very comfortable, very attractive finishes of stressed, salvaged wood and exposed concrete. Lots of light and pleasant outlooks through the windows. Thoughtful touches, elegant bathroom with two sinks, small private yard for the dog's morning potty, quiet neighborhood within blocks of shopping and restaurants on NW 23rd. Downsides are about 10 steps up without a handrail to the gate, and a fairly steep, brief downhill to the apartment. This is only an issue if one is physically challenged. Crossing the street as a pedestrian in this neighborhood feels like a threat to physical safety. The apartment is comfortable, has lots of storage spaces, beautiful lighting on dimmers, and plenty of electronics and videos for all.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your stay.....I actually just finished the fabrication for the handrail and it will be installed in a week! Sorry about that, I was totally overtaken with the holidays and was shooting for it to be done before winter hit. Yes being a pedestrian in Portland has become a challenge. We are having such huge growth and the addition of an army of Uber/Lyft drivers leaves you on the defensive. Hopefully this wont keep you away for a future stay but I am very glad you brought this to our attention. Thanks again for your stay. Denny
