The best place I've stayed yet in Portland!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a WONDERFUL stay at this house. We are Portlanders who were living away for a couple of years, and were in search of a vacation rental over the holidays. We were greeted by the owners mother, who made us feel right at home - she even brought our children a little gift while she was out shopping one of the days! The house was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated in a classic Portland style. We have two children, and the downstairs area was just perfect for them with books and toys and a cute back bedroom. We were able to entertain friends in the main room comfortably, everything about our stay was great. I would HIGHLY recommend this vacation home!

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time being able to stay in this house. Definitely a doable house. We appreciated the kitchen items that were available to use. The manager even left us Coffee, OJ and Croissants! I Highly recommend staying in this house. The only down fall was that the two bedrooms upstairs on the main level were a bit snug but old houses are like that! Loved the location as well!

Great girlfriends getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The house provided us four adults with ideal accommodations for our girlfriends getaway. It had everything we needed for a relaxing long weekend. The house was easily accessible on foot and by car to many indpendently owned shops and restaurants that we wanted to explore. The house was clean and well equipped for our stay. The owners and host were both communicative and helpful. We highly recommend this home for a family or adult getaway.

Awesome, tidy, roomy, felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

So easy to get in and out and it felt just like home. Everything we needed was there, plus an added bonus of some croissants!!

There were 2 couples staying there and there was more than enough room for us. I would stay again. Also, neighborhood was nice and plenty to do within 10 minutes walking - parks, grocery stores and restaurants!
