About the property

Located within walking distance to downtown Portland and convenient to the Pearl district, this romantic private suite is appointed with all of the luxuries found in a fine hotel. There is also a communal deck with mountain and river views available for your use when the weather permits.

A queen sized bed in the main bedroom sleeps two but there is also another blow-up queen sized bed in another room along with an electric pump and all the bedding needed.

About Vicki deVille

I am a native Portlander and also a property developer/interior designer. I lived in Hawaii for 29 years but have come back to Portland to spend time with aging parents and grandchildren. I have traveled extensively, spending time in more than 74 countries and know what to expect in a fine hotel.

Vicki deVille purchased this house in 2001

Why Vicki deVille chose Portland Heights

This home has a unique sense of character and the location is wonderful. It is an easy stroll to Downtown,, the Saturday Portland State farmers Market, NW 23rd Street and to the Pearl. A $5 taxi ride back up the hill makes it easy for those who don't want to walk back. There is also a bus stop right across the street.

What makes this house unique

This home was built in 1950 by Eric Ladd who re-used pieces of the historic Portland Hotel which was torn down that year and stood where Pioneer Place is now located. I purchased the White Stag Windows from the Rebuilding Center and added to Mr. Ladd's legacy by using them to define the suite you will be staying in.

Beautiful, private, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was like having a beautifully appointed apartment, all our own, in an ideal location. So much more home-like than a hotel. Vickie is a delight and her artistic skills are obvious in the decorating of the apartment.

Beautiful adventure overlooking downtown Portland

  • 5 of 5

Excellent quality VRBO. High end amenities including granite countertops and an amazing all tile bathroom with a rain shower attachment. We had drinks every night before venturing to dinner on a spacious covered and heated balcony overlooking the twinkling lights of the city. Absolutely a fabulous walk downhill to downtown ...then plan on ubering back. Our hostess Vicki was wonderful! We decided she was the hostess with the "most"est,". Thanks Vicki!!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and will stay again. It was a great experience the owner is very friendly and the extra's like the patio with view are all very nice! It is close enough to downtown that you can walk and catch a cab home at the end of the evening. I would definitely recommend this to any and all who are staying in Portland.
