About Debbie Mills

We are originally from the UK & Canada, have traveled extensively in the US and Europe using vacation rentals. We have been coming to Portland for many years and love the city. It is a paradise for walking, cycling, eating and drinking, and you do not need a car! We have 2 places in prime locations, The Perch is one of them.

Debbie Mills purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Debbie Mills chose Oregon

The architects who converted this 100 year old house into 2 units did a great job of maintaining the old charm while adding modern amenities, we have recently upgraded the property again. It is a home from home in the absolute best area in Portland.

What makes this apartment unique

Walking distance to restaurants, bars, breweries, theaters, light rail, parks, the river, downtown & the Pearl district and the Timbers soccer stadium. There are lots of separate spaces to enjoy.

Excellent in every way.

  • 5 of 5

We had four in our group-one other couple. We had a lovely stay. It is so delightful, extremely comfortable and top notch clean. We had some meals out but for the most part, we wanted to enjoy the comfort of this great rental. The kitchen is stocked with everything that you would need. We walked everywhere from the location and couldn't have had a more perfect stay. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Excellent location and beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place in every way. Each bedroom beautifully decorated, new bathrooms, large and cozy living room. The kitchen has everything you need and the center island is a great gathering spot.

Deb is super responsive and helpful in every way. Highly recommend The Perch for your Portland visit.

Wonderful place - great location

  • 5 of 5

Great place to use as a base to visit Portland. We were there on a family visit and the kitchen/dining room was a wonderful location for the extended family to sit and visit. Well furnished. Very functional and useful kitchen.

It is on second level, so there are stairs. Only one parking permit - having a second car will be a major headache - but downtown Portland area is easy walking.
