Why Bella chose Northeast Portland

This home is located in an amazing location. It has lots of great amenities with-in and also in the immediate neighborhood. Walking distance to everything. Private washer/dryer. Free Street Parking. WIFI. It's easily accessible to the airport, to the culinary center that is it to drink Oregon's great beers, wine, coffee and even home made fruit soda. The grocery store and pharmacy and many businesses are a few short walking blocks away. Super convenient neighborhood to access public transportation or highways to take you downtown or out to the coast or to the Gorge, Wine Country, Hood River, or Multnomah Falls for the day.

Great Location, Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with two other adults to Portland for a long weekend to visit some friends near this neighborhood. This was the perfect place to stay. Everything -- from the rooms to the appliances -- was clean, cheery and convenient. As others have mentioned, there are multiple dining options, a grocery store and drug store within walking distance. It was so much better than staying in a hotel in another part of town. We had a great visit!

We loved this property!! It's in a great location-quiet neighborhood that is so close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Bella was so great to work with and property was perfect for us! We enjoyed Alberta street and everything the Arts district had to offer and it was easy to get to downtown from here as well. The condo was perfectly apportioned with all necessities we needed. We traveled with 2 teenage and one adult son and didn't feel cramped at all, we had plenty of space and so much to do! I would absolutely not hesitate to stay here again!!!

Went for a long weekend and stayed in the downstairs unit. It was exactly what we needed! The owner was quick to respond and helpful from the moment we booked until the moment I got my refund deposit back. We would definitely come back here again.

Exactly what we needed and expected

  • 5 of 5

We rented both upstairs and the downstairs units of this house for our family. Everyone in our group thought the house and the location was wonderful. The description and pictures were exactly what we got. The owner was quick to respond and helpful. A special treat was that the plum tree in the backyard was full of ripe fruit. We ate as much as we could handle, but there was hundreds more plums on the tree. We would definitely rent the units again.
