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 House in 2013

What makes this House unique
I love the utter Portland charm of this home. The front porch provides a place to read or people watch and the enclosed front courtyard is a great nest to visit or reflect.

A piece of paradise in Portland
A small group of resident physicians and I had a wonderful time living in Portland for a month. We were attending a course at OHSU and found the location of this rental to be perfect. We rode our bikes to the university each day (20mins bike ride 10 min tram ride), spent our afternoons checking out Hawthorne street vintage shops, and spent our weekends venturing to the coast, wine country or to Mount Hood. We couldn't have picked a more central location to explore all that Portland has to offer. The house is perfectly laid out for a group of adults to share. The main floor has a large open concept living room, dinning room and kitchen as well as two bedrooms and a bathroom. We found the kitchen well equipped with everything you would need to cook dinner each night. The house also has AC which was paramount as we experienced a week long heat wave. Our host Marc made the the check in and check out process seamless. He answered our questions promptly and recommended some great local restaurants. We all wish we could have extended our stay indefinitely. Thanks for creating such a wonderful space we hope to return soon!
This house was perfect for our stay in Portland over the holidays. The open fully stocked kitchen was fun to cook in and the openness of the house allowed us to have the whole family over in comfort and style. The house is in a great location so close to both Hawthorn and Belmont. It is nice to have a grocery right across the street.
Marc is fantastic to work with and the house has everything that you ever need. I hope I get the chance to stay again in the future.
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
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.
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.
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.
Close to Laurelhurst Park (jogging, ducks), groceries, great cafes, coffee shops, bars, Powell's Books, most bank branches, boutiques, cinema, theater, bakeries, easy transportation and people watching/meeting
