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

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.

This lovely private get-away is conveniently located to everything Portland has to offer. I will be happy to recommend reestaurants and other venues. The deck is gorgeous with heaters, up- lighting, chandeliers and a wonderful atmosphere. It can be used except during stormy weather when you would want to be downstairs snuggled up to the fireplace anyway!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

Although we were only at the historic suite one night it was more than we could have imagined! Vicki was so so sweet! She greeted us right as we showed up and gave us a quick tour of the property! She was even sweet enough to ship me my toothbrush that I forgot without any hesitation! She really went above and beyond!!! The design and atmosphere of this VRBO are one of a kind. I felt like I was sleeping in a Victorian castle. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was coffee for us in the morning. And I can't forget about the views. On the views. The deck was our favorite part about this place. It was so spacious and welcoming! And looking out at downtown Portland was picture perfect. Speaking of downtown, it was only a 7.50 uber drive to downtown, which was very nice! When (not if) we come back to Portland we will absolutely be returning to this VRBO! Thanks again for everything, Vicki! I can't recommend this place enough!!!!!!

This artist's studio is a classy and comfortable home away from home. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed so many things about this beautiful artist's studio apartment. Owner Vicki has combined historical treasures with modem finish carpentry and delightful touches to make this place a peaceful urban hideaway that we will return to whenever we come to Portland again.

Great view!

Vicki was so amazing! She was outside when pulled up and greeted us immediately and showed us around! She made us feel so welcome and it truly felt like we were at home. The apartment was clean and beautiful! It was prefect! We ate dinner on the deck and we could see Mount Saint Helens. It was stunning! We will be back next time we make it back to Portland!

A beautiful hideout in Portland!

This place is so wonderful! The house is beautiful with great views and a tree house feel. Vicki also had many toys and art supplies to keep my kids entertained and She replied promptly to all my questions. This place is a true gem, we hope to come again soon. Thank you so much for the stay!

Welcoming host, charming suite, great location

  • 5 of 5

Vicki was so kind to recommend local walks, restaurants, and sights. The suite has gorgeous architectural features and feels like a luxury tree house with its views. The quiet and picturesque neighbourhood was convenient to downtown but also a great place to escape the hustle and bustle.
