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:

We stayed here over 3 weeks to take care of medical treatment for our daughter. The location is perfect for either getting on the Max or for getting to SW Portland OHSU area. Depending on the time of day you can be across the Ross Island Bridge in just a few minutes (or a half hour if it is the wrong time of day) or in downtown Portland within 15 minutes on the Max. The house is small but nicely laid out and really comfortable. It is quiet and in a great neighborhood. The owners are really friendly. The Starfish Rental management company is superb -- they really took great care of us. Our only issue was the reliability of the wireless internet (we needed this for our work while we were there) which was a bit unreliable. However we talked to the owners and it got much better towards the end of our stay. The house is well stocked with everything you need to live a normal life. There are great places to eat within walking distance. It is even walking distance to the Aladdin Theater which and we saw a show there during our stay. I would absolutely recommend this place for a couple or small family (note that there is limited clothing storage in the kid's bedroom).

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed having you and your family stay during your extended time in Portland. Thank you for the glowing review. It sounds like you were able to take advantage of the great location of this rental - within a block of MAX, walking distance to some great restaurants and a brew pub, the theater, and close proximity to OHSU. We are so sorry about the issue with the internet. The router has been replaced now with a brand new one with a super strong connection. We hope you'll be back for a purely tourist visit next time!

Reviewer Comments:

We spent Thanksgiving week in this wonderfully arranged, well-supplied little cottage with my adult son, visiting with our #2 son who lives in Portland. It was especially appropriate for us after my husband fell and broke his arm. There was sleeping space for us to spread out and give him his own bed. He was content and safe to watch tv and nap, while my sons and I shopped and hiked and explored. We got him out for a friends' Thanksgiving about two blocks away. We didn't know that location when we booked the cottage! We, also, found our way to many wonderful restaurants and sites around Portland. I had read a review that noted that the cottage was near an industrial area, so it was much quieter than I expected. We loved walking in the neighborhood and we found our way to the Springwater Corridor along the River.

Reviewer Comments:

A little odd having the other house right next to you at first, but great location for exploring Portland. Saw the no parking situation online, but never had problems finding a spot out front. Only fills up during the day, and we were usually out for the day. Orange line is right there. Well stocked kitchen, laundry machines were nice. The only thing we missed at first and thought was odd was the no smoking of any kind on the property. With the constant rain we encountered, kind of a pain and seemingly unnecessary to walk the 100 feet down to the sidewalk in front of the house for a smoke of any kind. We could see no smoking in the house, understandable, but patio or the firepit area would be nice. Had a member of our party who had tendonitis and wanted to lay out while watching the only TV, but the pull out couch was broken. Notified admin, they were aware, said replacement was on way. The internet also went down once or twice while we were there, but pretty sure that was the service provider as resetting and unplugging the router did nothing. That's it! Overall, same price and much better digs that AirBnB. We would definitely stay here again. We were here on a film shoot, so it was crew staying at the house, but this place would be perfect for a family or couple(s) visiting Portland.
