Make your experience in Portland as unique as the city itself! Welcome to Shift Vacation Rentals, a totally remodeled vintage home in one of Portland’s most vibrant neighborhoods, the Alberta Arts District. Designed and created by Encircle Design & Build using reclaimed and local materials and loaded with luxurious touches including radiant floor heat, concrete counters, modern tiles and tons of natural light make this vacation rental a design haven.
The house is a duplex. The upper apartment, high gear, can also be rented for even larger groups, please see vrbo/444951. It’s the perfect home base for wedding parties, reunions, workshops, family getaways, business meetings, etc. Need more room? No worries we have two more rentals in the chic Mississippi District a 5 minute drive away, please look at :
Lower Unit- Low Gear:
3 bedrooms (2 with queen beds / 1 with two twin beds)
On-street parking. No reserved space.
Fully stocked kitchen
This is a modern, bright and airy garden-level unit with a large, open living, dining and kitchen area and all the amenities you need (from wifi to coffee grinder) to live, work, entertain and explore Portland.
When you arrive, a large patio with built-in benches, table and comfortable lounge chairs greet you. Inside, an open living room, dining room and kitchen make a perfect place to hang out with family and friends.
Three bedrooms allow for comfortable sleeping for 6 people. The first and second bedrooms have queen beds with comfortable mattresses and linens. The third bedroom has two twin beds which can be pushed together to form a queen bed if desired.
What sets this place apart from others?
This inner Northeast Portland neighborhood is one of the coolest parts of the city. Alberta Street itself is lined with galleries, boutiques, several of Portland’s top restaurants as well as dozens of casual cafés and nightspots. Eat and drink your way down the street from Peruvian to Italian to Southern, slurping locally crafted coffee, beer and ice cream. Walking distance to a movie theater, several live music venues, a farmer’s market (summer) an organic food co-op and a top-notch supermarket. Minutes from the airport and minutes to downtown make it the perfect home base for an amazing stay in Portland.
One major perk about renting this house is the coupons our lovely neighbors have shared for our guests. Frock Boutique, Tin Shed, Digs Inside and Out, Mimosa Studios, I Am Yoga Bikram Studio, The Wax Skin Spa, Crafty Wonderland and more....You get discounts to all these wonderful places! So eat, drink and shop- all a stroll away, and all at a discounted price!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Five-night stay notice: Generally, when a reservation request includes a weekend, we will require a five-night stay. A possible exception to this is when the dates fall between existing bookings or the requested dates are coming up soon. This five-night requirement will vary depending upon our calendar and booking load. Generally, when booking during low season well in advance or during high season (holidays and summer), we will most likely ask for five-nights minimum. If uncertain if this will apply to your request, please ask! We do not always have the five-night minimum requirement automatically set up in our calendars, which is why not all reservation requests will be accepted. We apologize for any inconvenience!

Why the Owner Chose Alberta, Portland, OR, USA:
During our travels we have stayed at many places and began taking note of what we did/or didn't like with our lodgings. Our goal in creating Shift Vacation Rentals is to put together our ideal rental in our ideal city. We hope you find the artistic, funkiness, ecologically mindedness of Portland in our rental. We partnered with many local businesses and artists in creating the home to give it a look and feel that you won't find elsewhere. A walk down Alberta Street is an experience you will adore.
