Beautiful 2 bed, 1 bath home in the heart of everything, sleeps 7
As an experienced and persnickety traveler myself, I designed this space with the goal of creating a place I would love to stay.
High ceilings and clean lines create a bright, airy atmosphere. The open-concept kitchen, dining and living areas have a modern/industrial look and every amenity you need to settle into your new home base and explore one of Portland’s most interesting neighborhoods.
Set the coffee maker to wake up to the smell of one of Portland’s famous roasts. The spacious king bedroom is fitted with luxury linens and plenty of extra space for a yoga mat or two. The bathroom is bright and clean, with original claw-foot tub/shower and extra-large towels. The second bedroom, off the kitchen, is a cozy hideaway for up to three kids (bunk bed is twin over full), another couple or a quiet office for mom or dad. Additional guests may sleep on the full sofabed in the living room. The house sleeps 1-5 adults or a family quite comfortably, making it perfect for a romantic getaway, family vacation, in-laws' visit, girls' weekend, or even a solo business traveler who wants to explore beyond downtown.
This is a free-standing, single family home with all living space, including laundry, on one level. There are approximately nine steps from the street to the front door. The lower three steps do not have a handrail, so if accessibility is an issue, this may not be the home for you.
There is one off-street parking space and plenty of on-street parking out front.
The house is located on a leafy, quiet side street just ½ block off NE Alberta Street on NE 8th Avenue.
Downtown Portland is 10 minutes by car or about 20 minutes by bus (#6 direct via MLK Blvd). Portland International Airport (PDX) is 15 minutes by car or 60 minutes via public transportation (MAX light rail/bus #6).
ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Alberta Arts is at the heart of Portland’s legendary indie business community. It’s a mile-long stretch of originality where you can buy a vintage skirt for $10 around the corner from a rare book shop that sells first editions for thousands. It’s where now-famous chefs became famous and where baristas get in shape for international competitions.
If you want to try all of the great restaurants, bars, cafés, food carts and coffeeshops of Alberta Arts, you’ll need to stay a month. But if you don’t have that long, don’t worry. We can give you a short list of musts. Here are a few highlights, for your Googling pleasure: Beast, Pine State Biscuits, Ciao Vito, Barista, Aviary, Salt & Straw Ice Cream, Pok Pok Noi (not technically on Alberta, but only a 13 minute walk).
Alberta Street is home to Last Thursday, a monthly street festival that closes the street for a few hours in the evening for gallery hopping, live music, people-watching, fire dancing, street art and performances of all kinds.
Every Sunday from early May through mid-November, a lively Portland Neighborhood Farmers Market takes place just two blocks away on the grounds of King Elementary School.
What makes this property even more perfectly located is its proximity to not just Alberta, but also the N. Williams and N. Mississippi business districts, home of even more great food, wine, beer and coffee, fashion and home goods. A short bike ride or a long-ish walk will take you to either of these pockets of goodness in a snap.
Needless to say, our goal is to help you fall as in love with Portland as we are. Let us know what we can do to make you feel comfortable and at home before and during your stay.

About Kurt Hettle
I was born and raised in the Midwest, and I have a Midwesterner's friendly, down-to-earth character. 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 absolutely perfect - close to downtown yet walking distance to not one but three thriving shopping/dining districts: Alberta, Williams & Mississippi.

Great house and location.
Lots of space, great design, very clean and comfortable. Great location.
Great location, lovely house
House has been beautifully renovated with industrial style decor that works well with the charming original features of the house like the crystal doorknobs and clawfoot tub. Perfect size and setup for my husband, me, and our 2 year old. We were happy that the house came with a pack n play as well as toddler friendly dishes and blocks in the closet. Short walk from coffee shops, restaurants, and bars. Kurt is friendly and quick to respond to emails and texts. This was our second stay at this house, and we'll definitely consider staying again.
Great place, Great Location!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! This house was perfect for us! Plenty of room, neat and clean. Neighborhood was convenient to food and shopping, but located on a quiet street with a driveway, which is always a plus in Portland. Kurt was very informative and quick to respond. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you!
Great house, great location!

Clean Comfortable Convenient
Cozy house in a great location
Lovely house with very nice furniture in a charming neighborhood
Although the backyard was not cleaned properly, we truly enjoyed our stay!
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.
