About Vladimir

I'm a local Realtor and I moved to Portland in 1993. We are a family of 4 and own several long and short term rentals in Portland.

We’ve lived in this neighborhood for 10+ years; we think it is the best neighborhood in Portland!

We’re in love with Portland and especially with Nob Hill (Alphabetical District). It has so many things to offer and is conveniently located to other famous neighborhoods (Pearl District, Downtown, etc.).

We enjoy living in Portland and hope our guests enjoy it as much as we do. We aim to provide a comfortable home while visiting the City of Roses, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any inquiries.

Vladimir purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Vladimir chose Portland

Foodies and shoppers haven! Among the nearby attractions are : the Zoo, the Rose, the Japanese, and the Chinese Gardens.

Public transportation within walking distance.

Terrific Location.....

  • 4 of 5

This lovely older building was in the perfect location and within easy walking distance to Washington Park, great grocery stores, Trader Joes and Nob Hill bars, restaurants and shops.

The owner, Vlad, was very easy to work with and entry into the apartment was just as he indicated. It had a nicely appointed living room with a good TV; the kitchen was a decent size and included a round table with three chairs. The bedroom and bathroom were of a vintage era and both were on the small side. The queen bed was comfortable but hard to get out of without waking your partner if you were the one sleeping on the inside.

There were plenty of clean towels but since we were staying a week an extra roll of toilet tissue and paper towels would have been appreciated.

All in all we loved our visit to Portland and our stay in this cozy apartment. We would certainly rent from Vlad again.

Great location in good neighborhood.

  • 3 of 5

Great location in Nob Hill, close to restaurants and shops. Short walk to public transit. Excellent price. However, bathroom was very dirty. Black mold on the ceiling from a leak in the 2nd floor, and shower curtain was gnasty. Also super loud upstairs, so be ready to get up early.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I enjoyed two nights at this place. The location is a block from the main street with lots of shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the comfortable bed and couch. The bathroom was small but clean except for what looked like mold on the shower curtain (but maybe something else, it was black). We didn't cook any meals because hello Portland, but the kitchen was a nice size and looked to be well stocked. We had no issus here and the place was quiet except for the stairs/walking from upstairs, but not really a big deal at all. Also, I locked my phone in the unit when checking out and Vladimir was prompt about getting back to me and helping me get back in to get my phone. He was actually in an appt and had someone else get back to me right away, so I appreciated that. We would definitely stay here again!

Good Location for Exploring Portland

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was in a perfect location for us because we love to walk. In 5-10 minutes we could be at Washington Park, variety of restaurants (all price levels), large or boutique stores, and groceries (Zupan's Market or Trader Joe's)

This is an old house that has been divided into multiple apartments. It's clean and functional, but interior features and furnishing are old and dowdy. There is plenty of floor space for two adults. The living room is fairly spacious. Bedroom, kitchen and bath are small. Bed is comfortable, but it's pushed against three walls, so person sleeping on the wall side has to climb over sleeper on the other side to get in or out. Manageable with some agility and with friendly negotiation before bedtime. Kitchen dishware and utensils are minimal - owner could provide some wine glasses. There is no dishwasher. Bathroom has a good shower, but floor mat and towels could be improved. There is lots of closet and shelf storage in the hallway for clothing and gear.

Interior lighting could use more wattage. It was sunny when we were there, but I imagine it would be a bit dark and dreary on cloudy/rainy day. There are plenty of windows, but some of the metal blinds are inoperable because the control wands are missing or broken.

Internet service is provided. Service went out two days in a row. Owner responded promptly to get service restored.

In general, we didn't notice any street noise, even though the house is near the curb at a fairly busy intersection. We slept well. We did hear people moving around on the floor above us because the wood floors are old and creaky.

Good clothes washer and dryer in the basement (and detergent) are very convenient.

The owner was responsive and communicated clearly and efficiently. We would stay here again if we return to Portland.

RECOMMENDED

Breakfast at Lovejoy Bakers

Happy Hour at Papa Haydn

Beer and good bar fare at Deschutes Brew Pub

Via Delizia for breakfast or happy hour

Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour is an entertaining introduction/overview of the city's layout, attractions, and local history.

Zupan's Market is a smaller, local version of Whole Foods, with locally sourced produce, etc.

OVERRATED

Bar at City Grill over-priced and food inedible

Best of Portland City Tour was tedious - more standing around than walking - with an annoying Chamber-of-Commerce tone

Really Nice Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I liked Vladimir's place because it's an excellent location. You're in the heart of Nob Hill; all you need is blocks away. There's Trader Joe's, restaurants, bakeries, natural stores and more. You can also easily walk to The Pearl district (about a 25-minute easy trip) for more interesting culture. It's also super easy to catch a bus to downtown or to walk.

I liked that the apartment has just enough of what you need and not too much else. It's clean and spare, and nicely functional. I also liked the keyless entry, as there is no need to meet with anyone to get in. If you like flying solo as I do, it's a great setup.

Thanks Vladimir for a great visit!

Nob Hill stay

  • 4 of 5

The property was very tidy and comfortable. As a 1 bedroom, the apt is very spacious. It is ideally situated in the Nob Hill district and is an easy walk east toward the river into other parts of town. We would definitely stay there again in the future.
