About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

The City of Portland has issued Permit #14-224495-000-00HO to The Brooklyn Cottage indicating it has been properly inspected and is a legal rental in Portland.

**Please note: this home allows a maximum for 4 adults and up to 2 children.

Starfish Vacation Rentals is pleased to offer this newly renovated bungalow for those seeking an urban adventure. Brooklyn Cottage is conveniently located near downtown Portland, multiple universities and colleges, numerous cultural and entertainment activities, top-notch restaurants, spas and gyms, and a number of major medical centers. It’s a warm, inviting abode that has been thoughtfully equipped to serve as your home away from home when visiting the beautiful City of Roses.

This private, tastefully decorated bungalow is tucked behind lush landscaping and the property’s main house. The two are separated by a peaceful courtyard that’s perfect for lounging with a good book or for enjoying a homemade meal you can prepare with the onsite gas grill and fully equipped, modern kitchen. That is if you aren’t too tempted by the many nearby Portland eateries.

Brooklyn Cottage has street parking and close access to public transportation. After a day exploring Portland, you’ll appreciate a good night’s sleep in the comfortable beds (one queen, one twin trundle bed), both of which are wrapped in high-quality linens. A queen-sized sofa sleeper in the family room provides an additional sleeping option, for a house total of five guests. The family room features several entertainment options—a cable-equipped HDTV, DVD player, high-speed broadband WiFi, and selection of board games. The bungalow’s nicely appointed bathroom will beckon with its full-sized, cast iron tub and tile shower enclosure; soft, fluffy towels; and eco-spa amenities. A convenient full-sized washer and dryer are also available in the home, along with an environmentally friendly heating and air-conditioning unit to keep you comfortable in all seasons.

Every detail about this premier property exudes the owners’ discriminating taste, attention to detail, and graceful hospitality. Whether it’s a family vacation or a romantic getaway, you are sure to have the experience of your dreams at the Brooklyn Cottage.

Reviewer Comments:

This was an exceedingly comfortable and satisfying rental experience in our first roadtrip as a family with a baby. The house was outstandingly well equipped with all of the conveniences of home and very well-located just a one-minute walk to the MAX Orange Line and with multiple bus-lines within 1-2 minutes of walking. We took advantage of businesses on the SE Milwaukie Ave corridor including foodcarts, shops, coffee, and a 24-hour supermarket, all walkable within 10 minutes, and even the Oaks Bottom natural area for a nice hike through an overgrown oak woodland abutting wetlands. It wasn't far from some of the more tourist-magnetic areas of SE Portland, and it was accessible to streets where you could beat rush hour traffic to areas in all directions except the gridlocked core. As a house behind a house, it is compact, but with a great floorplan and plenty of room in all rooms except the bathroom, which made up for its lack of size with great functionality and amenities. The kitchen was unusually large and usable for a house this size. Not only would I happily stay there again... Heck, I'd probably buy the place for $400k if it could be moved to the nearest empty lot even if it were on a drab corner. We met the owners who live in the front. They were very kind and offered extra things parents of babies might need (they had their own sweet baby), but we were well prepared. They were very friendly, but respected our privacy. When there was a small problem with the door lock system (battery refresh), they were there proactively before the problem even impacted us. In conclusion, I give this property the highest recommendation.

Reviewer Comments:

We could barely have been happier with our stay at the Brooklyn Cottage, so any of the suggestions below are very very nit-picky!! The home is beautiful, in nearly pristine condition (some minor scuffs on walls and scratches on furniture), well equipped kitchen, literally a PERFECT location (far enough from downtown to feel like a neighborhood yet super easy access by either car or MAX and SO PEACEFUL AND QUIET!), clean and comfortable with lots of space for a family of 3-4, and everything seems thoughtfully designed from the ample and well placed outlets to the labelling and instructions all over the home to the super soft comfy throws under the coffee table for cuddling on the couch. We also really appreciated that when we arrived the environmental controls were set at a comfortable temperature and we didn't touch them the entire trip. The artwork is interesting and ecclectic and not too much. I love the maps up in the kitchen as a sort of easy guest book. I love that when we arrived the ice trays in the freezer were full for use. The storage was ample for our things and suitcases so we didn't feel like we had to step over our suitcases to move around. We would absolutely 100% stay here again and hope to on future Portland trips! Here are our very nitpicky suggestions: 1) we spotted the pack-n-play in the utility closet but couldn't find a kid's step stool which would have been really useful for us 2) our picky toddler missed the red plastic spoon - you had a red plastic cup and bowl, but no spoon :) 3) the switch for the fan in the bathroom made an irritating screechy noise when the fan was on - this is the ONE thing that I think really needs to be looked at by the owners 4) the fake fruit on the kitchen table is too realistic! I didn't realize until the next morning they weren't real and had to make a quick trip to the store to pick up some food for a hungry toddler Thanks for a great stay! Pauline, Brian and Andrew

Couldn't be happier. The place was well appointed, everything we needed to stay, and cook. Games to keep our family entertained. A block from the MAX station to make it easy to get around.

Reviewer Comments:

Brooklyn Cottage was perfect for our group of four to stay in. We were visiting family, and the house was large enough for them to come over and play games and visit with us. The location is perfect - very close to downtown, freeways,easy access to the popular Hawthorne area and more. There is wildlife refuge less than half a mile away with a beautiful walking path. The house was very clean. The beds were comfy. We were there during a heat wave so thank you for the air conditioning! It was a quiet neighborhood.
