About the Property

Townhouse; 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom; Steps Away From Alberta Street

If you are looking for an idyllic Portland experience in the eclectic, artsy, foodie Alberta Arts district, then this is the place for you. Be it a family vacation, executive stay, or accommodations while house hunting, this two-story townhouse is ideal for anyone who may be in need of comfortable home while staying in Portland. Located less than 6 miles from Portland International Airport, your neighborhood stay will find you within walking distance of what you may have read about, the infamous Alberta Street. There is MUCH to discover, enjoy, and experience!

This newer townhouse can sleep up to 4-5 guests (1-King, 1-Queen, plus sofa bed). It has 2 bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room, and an attached garage. The Master Suite includes a master bathroom, a walk-in closet, and its own HDTV with cable. Fast WiFi also available.

The location couldn’t be more ideal. You are a short walking distance to popular restaurants and bars, inviting coffee and tea shops, unique boutiques, food carts, art galleries, the Alberta Rose Theater (offering live performances of all sorts!), yoga studios, neighborhood parks, and even a small local gym if you desire a workout. Portland’s very own New Season’s Market is only a 10 minute walk away where you can shop for all of your grocery and deli needs (including a large organic selection). And if its ice cream you desire, you can’t leave Portland without making a stop at Salt & Straw, which offers some of the most unique and culinary flavor combinations you will ever experience. It is only 8 blocks away!

An added location bonus: Milo’s Place is situated steps away from a bus stop, which can take you downtown or to a place where you can connect to Portland’s efficient light rail system (called the MAX train). The MAX train can take you in all sorts of directions, including downtown, the airport, or the Washington Park/Oregon Zoo area. Other delightful Portland neighborhoods are easy to access by bicycle, public transportation, or car. Whatever works best for you!

This home is a great place to relax or entertain. The cozy themed bedrooms are decorated with Oregon/Portland artwork and photography to match the Portlandia (Master) and Oceanside themes. The kitchen is stocked with appliances, cooking equipment, coffee and tea. Wi-fi is also provided. Central A/C provided. A gas grill is in the garage if grilling is something you love to do. At the end of the day, whether you have been out and about, or stayed close to home, this is your home away from home.

*The quality of your stay is important to us. The kitchen appliances, dishes, pots and pans, and all house linens are of good quality. Hair dryers, an iron & ironing board are provided. You will arrive to a thoroughly cleaned house. We take providing you with a good experience very seriously and are happy to answer any questions.*

**PLEASE NOTE: This house is not a good choice for persons who experience difficulty climbing or descending stairs.**

Maximum number of guests is 5. Minimum stay is 3-4 nights (non-peak vs. peak season) and maximum stay is 29 nights.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I'm a Minnesota native, but have called Portland my home since 1998. My love for Portland, and Oregon as a whole, grows deeper with each passing year. Living in a location that is progressive, environmentally conscious, and accessible to so many outdoor activities that fit my lifestyle perfectly. I'm committed to ensuring YOUR Portland experience while staying at Milo's Place, will leave lasting, positive memories, and the desire for you to return again and again.

Why the Owner Chose Alberta Arts District, Portland, OR, USA:
Milo, the original and first owner of this townhouse, was my Dad. He moved to Portland (from Minneapolis, MN) in 2007 to be near me. Like me, he immediately fell in love with Portland and the Alberta Arts District. He walked the neighborhood, visited the shops, and both he and I frequented many of the outstanding restaurants on a regular basis. In the true and genuine Portland spirit, which makes it such an outstanding city, Milo was well respected and well loved by neighbors, merchants, and restaurant owners. And he loved and respected them right back. The warm, diverse, eclectic, and vibrant Alberta Arts neighborhood provided Milo (and continues to provide for me), an enriching lifestyle that nourishes the soul. The location, the energy, the neighborhood, and the people, in a word, are PERFECT! Milo's Place is my way of honoring his memory as well as providing visitors the opportunity to experience this lovely Alberta neighborhood, and Portland as a whole.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Location, location, location…walking distance to several outstanding ethnic restaurants and pubs, as Alberta Arts District is literally just around the corner! Plus an outstanding local grocery chain (New Seasons Market) and accessible public transportation nearby! In addition, when you prefer to relax at 'home', this modern townhouse offers a spacious, yet cozy open floor plan with a very user friendly kitchen. The back patio provides you with a serene place for your morning cup of coffee or your evening glass of wine. The 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms make it a very suitable place for a family stay or multiple guests.
