About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath

Enter through common foyer into a main level Old Portland Style home apartment. Step into the light-filled living room where you can watch TV, read or snuggle by the cozy gas fireplace. Next is the formal dining room at the heart of the house that leads into the kitchen equipped for breakfast bar snacking or preparing a full, sit-down feast ( groceries are two to ten minutes away on foot). The bedrooms are off the hall from the dining room and separated by the bathroom. One is a queen and the other a romantically appointed full. The entire place is comfortably elegant and tranquil to take in couched in a very lively part of Portland boasting some of the best eating and strolling districts. I love to meander the neighborhood in spring and summer to see what's coming up in peoples gardens and just look at the houses let alone all the shops and people. Fall and winter get wetter but are no less interesting. Laurelhurst Park is close by and excellent for picnics, jogs and watching ducks in the large pond. There's a lot down any spoke leading from the front porch of this home whether on foot, pedaling, by all the buses going every which way or car.

About Marc Weaver

I am one of the few native Oregonians still roaming, more elusive than Bigfoot these days. One time actor, waiter, teacher, mortician - I've come to realize I've always set the stage in one way or another for others to share an experience and this home is one more way to create such a space.

Marc Weaver purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Marc Weaver chose Portland

This house found me.

What makes this apartment unique

I love the utter Portland charm of this home. The front porch provides a place to read or people watch and the shared space of the enclosed front courtyard is a great nest to visit or reflect. There is a cozy one bedroom garret apartment on the upper floor from the foyer stairs should you have a larger party. Contact me for availability and additional cost.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent a few months in this charming flat and could not have had a better home away from home. Mark has thought of everything you could possibly need during your Portland stay and then generously provided it – including beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a well-stocked bath, and books and pamphlets about the area. The flat is situated in a beautifully landscaped residential neighborhood but conveniently located within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, grocery stores, a movie theater, and magnificent Laurelhurst Park. Finally, Mark is a very accommodating and responsive host. We look forward to returning to this flat during our next stay in Portland!

My New Home in Portland--I Wish

  • 5 of 5

Marc's home makes you feel as though you've lived here for a long time. The photos on the VRBO listing match what you see when you walk in. The home has plenty of room to prepare meals and eat at the long dining room table. He has supplied just about everything you could need to create them. Pots and pans in multiples, spices, oils, napkins, candles, hundreds of dishes and silverware, even TWO Bic candle lighters. He has thought of everything. The bathroom separates the two bedrooms, allowing for quiet. It has a large hot shower, with shampoo and conditioner in case you forgot some. The stairs to the upstairs rooms are near the front bedroom but only occasionally did I hear the other guests coming. The bed was comfortable, and felt relatively new. The porch and small enclosed patio area are meant for a cup of coffee, glass of wine or even an outdoor meal. Marc has maintained the home very well. Very very clean. I met a few neighbors as they were working in their yards on my walk to my daughters home.

Great restaurants nearby. Try the French food cart at Growlers. Get a bowl of French onion soup and a salad, bring it home. Then return the bowl the next day. Try a beer from the vendor selling over 50 beers. Or a smoked turkey leg. Chaing Mai for excellent Thai food. Chez Machin for soup and crepes. McMenamins @ the Bagdad Theatre for burgers. These are all within a two block radius--except Chaing Mai.

Fred Meyers is across the street. The parking lot has many trees, plus the trees at the house block the view. Never felt its presence. Not having a car, I used the buses and Uber. Easy payment set up with your phone for both. Rain prevented some plans, so we went to Powells on Hawthorne, Noun on Belmont. Or walked in it. Since my daughter has moved to Portland, I have stayed at 5 different VRBO locations. By far this home is number One. I would recommend this rental to friends and family. Marc left a few notes on the trash, the keyless entry way and the laundry. You won't need further instructions, as all has been taken care of. He provided his local number should you need it, which I didn't.

Oh he has an eclectic collection of artwork, which adds to the comfort. The front bedroom has an entire wall covered in reproductions of The Blue Boy, 1770, Dutch. (had to look it up) Yet I didn't notice them initially, as the door to the hallway opens in to partially cover it. Fun diversion.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Marc has thought of everything. The house is so well-equipped. Nothing is missing. Very comfortable, welcoming, tasteful. This was our second visit, and it feels like our Portland home away from home. We'll be back!

I felt like a celeb in this swankily appointed vintage home.

  • 5 of 5

The location is excellent, a micro-walk to Portlandia culture/shopping at its best on Hawthorne street. Also plenty of dining and drinking establishments just a stones throw away. This home was so cozy, gorgeous, fashionably decorated, carefully stocked, and cleaned, we didn't want to leave it. The fireplace was heaven itself during our rainy chilly stay.

Great experience in all respects

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Marc's two bedroom apartment for a month in September-October, 2015. We found the apartment to be spacious, clean and nicely (and creatively) decorated. The kitchen especially is excellent...large and very well-equipped. Each of the bedrooms is big enough to comfortably accommodate a couple.

The apartment's location couldn't be better: right across the way from a massive Fred Meyer supermarket, a short stroll to endless boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops on Hawthorne and Belmont, easy public transit access to pretty much anywhere in Portland.

Marc himself is great: friendly, helpful, responsive (Sorry again, Marc, for accidentally decapitating the little Dutch-girl figurine.)

Highly recommended...definitely would stay there again.

Marc has thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most comfortable and attractive places we've ever rented, and we're highly experienced travelers who have used VRBO often. The unit has great charm and character, and it's extremely well-equipped. We paid extra to rent the upstairs unit so we could have the house to ourselves. There's a lot of traffic in the neighborhood because of the Fred Meyer store catty-cornered to the property, but that's a minor issue. No traffic at all would make this place perfect.
