About Bells

Enjoying the best that Portland has to offer and sharing it with my children means we love the creativity that Alberta Street and the restaurants around the house have to offer. We love sharing our neighborhood with other families, too. Stella Taco and Back to Eden (Vegan/GF) are our go-to places to eat.

Bells purchased this house in 2007

Why Bells chose Portland

This home is located in an amazing location. It has lots of great amenities with-in and also in the immediate neighborhood. Walking distance to everything. Private washer/dryer. Free Street Parking. WIFI. It's easily accessible to the airport, to the culinary center that is it to drink Oregon's great beers, wine, coffee and even home made fruit soda. The grocery store and pharmacy and many businesses are a few short walking blocks away. Super convenient neighborhood to access public transportation or highways to take you downtown or out to the coast or to the Gorge, Wine Country, Hood River, or Multnomah Falls for the day.

What makes this house unique

This is a private 3 level townhome in a residential house setting. You can walk around and take in Portland or you can sit around and watch the decorative flora grow.

Nice home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire house (top unit and lower unit) providing us 5 bedrooms and 4 baths. The house had all the amenities you might need. On a clear day you can see Mt St Helens from the kitchen window! The location is walking distance to so many great restaurants, shops and bars in the Alberta neighborhood. Within a half block there's a couple of restaurants, yoga studio and vintage store and within three blocks a great grocery store, BBQ stand, pizza, liquor store and pub.

Great place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed with a group of friends in both levels, and we had a great experience. The house is comfortable and well appointed. Easy walk to all the restaurants and bars on Alberta Street. Bella is next door and was very attentive to anything we needed. Great location and all around good experience.

Nice place to stay and not to far from airport.

  • 4 of 5

I think the property was very nice and had everything you would expect. The owner was also very nice. The only thing is there are a lot of stairs so if you have any problems with stairs I would suggest you steer clear. Their is plenty of dinning within walking distance and is not to far from the freeway. Overall thought it was worth the money for a large family.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating our in laws 40th anniversary in Portland. Bella was an amazing host. Always available and ready to answer any questions. The house was in great condition and in a perfect location. Walking distance from Alberta district and so close to downtown. The house was so neat and had a great layout for our family of 7. Just awesome. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks you Bella!
