Property description

This amazing duplex is located in the heart of Portland's most unique neighborhoods. Alberta Arts District always has something unbelievable to look at (people riding bikes while juggling), amazing restaurants to eat at (home to Portland's culinary creativity), fun pubs to have a drink (locally brewed beers won't disappoint), and loads of independent stores to purchase gifts at (adorable dresses, funky jewelry, await you). The best part is the house is in the heart of the area. It's the location you hope to get when book a vacation rental. Walking distance to all on Alberta Street. 15 minutes by car from the airport, 10 minutes by car to the heart of the city. The bus stop is a block away and there is also free street parking around the house.

Our typical rental period is 5 night min, especially over the weekend and in high season (May - Sept & Holidays). We do accept shorter stays, as they work with the calendar so feel free to ask.

High Gear (the upper level of the duplex) has 4 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. An open living, dining, and kitchen area. The first floor houses 3 of the bedrooms. 2 with queen beds and the third with a bunk bed (double lower and twin above). The first floor also has a full bath with walk in shower. The second floor houses a fourth bedroom, loft area with futon and skylights, and a gorgeous full bathroom.

The kitchen is fully stocked from coffee grinder to microwave oven to blender. You will be able to cook up a feast and eat in comfort at the wood dining table adorned with beautiful dishes.

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 & more....You get discounts to all these wonderful places! So eat, drink and shop- all a stroll away and all at a discounted price!

The side yard boasts the coolest kids hive play structure, teeter tooter, picnic table and yard games. In the nice weather its a perfect spot to enjoy a meal or let the kids run free!

The house had been newly gutted and remodeled using sustainable and local materials, and has inspiring touches throughout the house. It promises to be one of the best vacation rentals in all of Portland.

For larger groups, this house can be rented along with vrbo/443441 (low gear the 3 bedroom/1.5 bathroom).

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • cleaning fee $115 + tax
  • 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!

Is simply perfect. The house sits in the heart of Alberta Street, Portland's most vibrant funky neighborhood. You can walk to a multitude of restaurants, bars, and stores. Inner NE Portland is centrally located so visiting other neighborhoods or going downtown is a few minutes drive. The house is 15 minutes from the airport. There is plenty of free parking on the street. The bus stop is 2 blocks from the house making public transport a breeze.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Portland, Portland, OR, USA:
The location couldn't be any better. It sits in the heart of Alberta Arts District and this Portland neighborhood encompasses all the amazing features that makes Portland- Portland. 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I think our rental has many unique areas- from a large side yard filled with interesting kids structures to corn hole which is a game that friends can play and enjoy for hours. Inside the house has bike themed interiors from hanging tricycle lights to handle bar coat racks. We wanted the house to be comfortable for guests, so details such as reading lights above the beds were put in every room. We hope you love your stay!
