Second stay - Still as good as ever

  • 5 of 5

The points I like about The Nest are;

1. The location in a leafy street of the Alphabet District (also known as Nob Hill and the NW district) a short walk to Trader Joes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, Powells Books, the Japanese Gardens and rose gardens.

2. The two bedrooms are pretty much equal in quality so no-one gets the short straw.

3. The layout provides plenty of sitting areas so you don't feel like you are on top of one another.

4. The furnishings are well-appointed and give you what you need without clutter. The sheets and towels are high quality. The kitchen knives are sharp.

5. My communications with Debbie (the host) have always been very pleasant.

Thanks again for a wonderful place to stay on our Portland vacation.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great fit for our needs during our Portland stay. The house had everything we needed. It was located justa few blocks from many restaurants and shopping that we were able to walk to, or a short uber ride to downtown, but is walkable if you had time. I would recommend this place to anyone, and would definitely rent this place again in our next trip back to Portland. I loved sitting in the sunroom during the morning and listening to the birds while drinking my morning coffee. The owners made sure you had everything you needed during you stay. Thank you!

The Nest is absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The Nest is the perfect location for a visit to Portland. Downtown is within walking distance for shopping, eating, and entertainment. There is easy access on and off the highway as well. The property is absolutely lovely-nice sunroom, big kitchen and dining room, nice master and bath. We used the laundry facilities which are right off the bedroom. The property was very nicely decorated and very clean. The beds were comfortable and sheets were soft. I would highly recommend this property.

exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

From the gorgeous property itself and it's excellent location to the nice details (bottle of wine and coffee beans waiting for us) I have nothing but great things to say about the house. Debbie even checked in to make sure we were happy after arrival. Looking forward to returning.
