About Kurt Hettle
I was born and raised in the Midwest, but when I discovered the natural beauty and cultural openness of the Pacific Northwest, I knew I was truly home. A commercial photographer by trade and a lifelong traveler, I am constantly looking for inspiration in new spaces and places. I've lived in the Alberta Arts neighborhood for more than a decade, and I've enjoyed watching it become the mecca of food, drink, coffee, shopping and relaxing that it is today.
Kurt Hettle purchased this House in 2013
Why Kurt Hettle chose Alberta
The house is an interesting balance of old and new. I was drawn to its strong Victorian bones and quaint exterior, but it needed a lot of work. I took a year to reconfigure and renovate the inside to create the comfortable, modern living space you see today. I'm now proud to share this home with visitors from all over the world.
What makes this House unique
The location is ideal - close to downtown yet walking distance to not one, but three thriving shopping/dining districts: Alberta, Williams & Mississippi.

Great rental. Perfect location in the Alberta Arts district. Can't wait to come back!
Great location. Cute and comfortable!
This place was wonderful! It was great for a family. Lots of space. The kitchen had everything. We really enjoyed the location and it’s access to so many cute restaurants and shops. Would definitely stay here again.
Lovely home. Fun location
Really enjoyed this space. It was perfectly walkable to all the fun restaurants and shops in the Alberta district. The space was well set up and perfect for our family. We will definitely come back.
Portland - Music, Nature & History
Traveled to Portland from Chicago with my dad to see my son (his grandson) who was on a music tour of the west coast. Portland seemed the perfect place to catch up. Great location, the house was very comfortable, well appointed - everything we needed. Kurt was very helpful and a great host. Nice, quiet neighborhood; lots of restaurants, grocery. Would absolutely come back and stay at this location next time we are in town.
Fun house, Fun spot.
This is a great place to experience NE Portland. The house was perfect for our little family. Everything was just as promised and off street parking!
Third Time Rental In This Charming Portland Home
This is the 3rd time our family has rented this charming, typical Portland home. Inside however, it has been revamped into a modern, open space with excellent flow. Our family of 6 from out of town stays here with no problem. There is plenty of room then for the other 6 who live locally to come and have meals and together time. Two of its best features are the table out back where we have many family meals, even though when we have all 12 members we squish together and put two babies out to play in the nicely fenced in yard. The front entrance hall is great and holds our mound of shoes nicely. The laundry room is great coming from somebody who has rented many VRBO/Homeaway homes and AirB&Bs with questionable laundry facilites. There are currently air conditioners in the bedrooms and the fans in to livingroom/diningroom/kitchen space work well. The linens are exceptional in comparison to the above rentals with plenty of good quality sheets and towels. The owner is very responsive and a lot of fun to communicate with. The house is located in one of the most happening neighborhoods in Portland, with outstanding restaurants a short block away on Alberta going east or a quick drive or 10-15 minute walk to the very popular Williams or MIssissippi Avenues restaurants and coffee bars. New Seasons grocery store is a 5 minute drive for those of us who love organics off Freemont, or Safeway is a few blocks north on a main artery, MLK Avenue. Although we often go to the beach with the family to Seaside, sometimes we stay in Portland and when we do always come back here.
Home is perfectly located at the gateway to the Alberta Arts district, one of Portland's coolest neighborhoods full of great restaurants, bars, live music venues, boutiques, galleries, and other independent businesses. The home is also just a short bike ride or long-ish walk to two other thriving clusters of shopping and dining, located on N. Mississippi and N. Williams Streets.
