With a fully-equipped cook's kitchen and formal dining room that seats up to 6 people, guests can enjoy comfortable space in which to create and enjoy culinary delights crafted from Portland's gastronomic bounty.

Unique from most other Portland vacation rentals are the patio and yard space where guests can take full advantage of Portland's glorious spring, summer and fall. There's plenty of room for sun-seekers, barbecue aficionados and kids.

Other amenities include
• Private off-street parking for 2 cars

Car: Necessary

Our quiet neighborhood is flat - therefore walk-able and bike-able. Our home is just two blocks from the Going Street Bikeway, where cars take a backseat to bikes on this East/West bicycle thoroughfare. Adults and kids will enjoy Wilshire Park, just 1/2 bock away.

And for foodies who prefer doing their own cooking, New Season's grocery is just a 12 minute walk or a 4 minute bike ride away.

The happening Alberta Arts District, McMenamin's Kennedy School, and an emerging restaurant/bar district at 30th & Killingsworth nearby offer exciting eating and nightlife options as well as galleries and unique boutiques. Just west of the property, Beaumont Village offers a quieter option for shopping, dining (some great breakfast options!) and welcoming coffee shops. Old Salt Marketplace, one of Portland’s hottest new restaurants, is just down the street on 42nd Avenue.

In addition to bicycles provided, public bus service is just a few blocks away. Visitors can also access Car to Go, or private taxi service and 'sharing' economy taxi services. Light Rail serves downtown and the Airport, with the nearest station just a short cab or bus ride from our property.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Seeking warmer summers and a more exciting, diverse urban lifestyle, my wife and I recently relocated back to Portland from the Oregon Coast. I'm a 5th generation Portland native, and am now enjoying retirement. My wife, Susan, grew up on the coast, and got to know and love Portland while attending college here. She is a former newspaper owner and is now a business communications consultant; she works from our home. We love to travel, and together have enjoyed trips to Madagascar, Zanzibar (for our honeymoon!), South Africa, Spain, Italy, France, England, Morocco, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and most recently, Chile, where Susan's son is living. In our 10 years of togetherness we've frequented vacation rentals almost exclusively when we travel because we prefer that lodging experience over a hotel. We love to eat and Susan loves to cook; one of our favorite summer activities is bi-weekly visits to Portland's many farmers markets for locally- grown produce, cheeses and meats. We're also avid mushroom hunters. (No, not that kind!). Funghi foraging opportunities abound in the region, but our favorite season is fall, when we find and feast on chanterelles, hedgehogs, matsutaki, lobster and the occasional but generally elusive cauliflower mushroom. There's much to enjoy in and around Portland, and we're happy to share what we know with our guests!

Why the Owner Chose Beaumont - Wilshire, Portland, OR, USA:
When an aging neighbor made moving plans to be closer to family, he gave us the opportunity to purchase his home for future use by Susan's mother. The home was in need of some TLC, and we were up to the challenge. As Susan's mother isn't relocating here in the near future, we made the decision to transform the home into into a fun, feel-good vacation rental property in the interim. It was a natural outlet for our creativity - including that of Susan's very artistic Mom! Also, as frequent vacation rental guests and with a family that formerly owned a luxury boutique hotel, we wanted to use the knowledge of what we liked - and didn't - in vacation rentals around the world to create a welcoming, warm home for travelers to Portland and our neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This 900 sq. ft. home sits on a very large Portland lot, allowing for a great deal of outdoor space. With the home sitting far back on the lot, the front yard enjoys a great deal of sunshine. We like that because we are sun worshipers, and expect others are, too! A summer vegetable garden is in the works, and guests will be able to partake in the seasonal bounty. Inside, while a simple home, the efficient floor plan uses every ounce of space (no hallways!) making it seem much more open and airy. Natural light streams in washing over the colorful walls; my family refers to it as 'The Happy House.' A very pleasant surprise for us was the honey-toned hue of the original floors, revealed when we had them refinished. While we live just steps away, as our remodel and furnishing process was nearing completion, we found ourselves enjoying an end-of-day drink or lunch on the front patio with family and friends at THIS house instead of at our own home! In short, this house FEELS GOOD. We hope you think so, too.
