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?
The location:
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!

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • Tax Rate 12.5%

Notes:

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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a husband and wife team who love to travel and love designing houses. Our passion for both led us to start of our business, Encircle Design and Build. We adore Portland and think it is, if not the, then one of the best cities in the USA. We are excited to share our home and neighborhood with you as it offers so much. In the house there is a list of recommendations of what to do and see in PDX!

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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The private sunken patio gives a perfect spot to drink coffee in the morning. Reclaimed materials bring a history and story to the house that make it really special. There is thoughtfulness with all of the details from the paint colors to the lighting all of the items were specifically chosen to make the house beautiful and different.
