About the property

The perfect family home located in Portland's Southeast side with views of Mt. Hood. This light-filled large and airy home has bedrooms on 2 floors plus a fully finished basement with a family room, ping pong table, wet bar and additional fireplace.

Our home offers cozy living with plenty of space, with large rooms, great entertaining areas and a huge private backyard with family dining area that is perfect for backyard BBQs. The large kitchen and separate dining room are perfect for family gatherings, as is the big family room and rec room in the finished basement. There are two fire places, hardwood floors throughout, a large family room and two and a half bathrooms.

Tasteful decor, and a well-stocked linen closet and kitchen, central heat, Apple TV with Netflix, HBO and Hulu and high-speed WiFi make this home perfect for longer stays or family gatherings. We even have toys for kids and a Pak and Play. We try our best to make our home feel like your home away from home. We feature 100% cotton or linen 400+ thread count sheets and bedding throughout the house, as well as soft fluffy towels.

The house is located 1/2 a block from the entrance to Mt. Tabor Park, one of the best neighborhoods on Portland's east side. The park is great for running, hiking, biking, tennis and picnics. A short walk through the park lands you in Portland's Hawthorne District which is lined with shops and restaurants. Downtown Portland is an easy 10-minute drive. Public transportation is as close as a block away.

Mt. Tabor is one is one of the best neighborhoods in Portland. It surrounds the now extinct Mt. Tabor volcano, which is the only volcano within city limits in the U.S., and has long been extinct. The 'hill' is now a gorgeous city park with hiking and biking trails, family picnic areas, basketball and tennis courts, reservoirs and amazing views of Mt. Hood and downtown Portland.

While Mt. Tabor is quiet and residential, it sits in the middle of 4 of the most vibrant commercial neighborhoods in town - Montevilla/Stark, Hawthorne, Belmont and Division Street SE. You can easily walk to movie theaters, some of the best restaurants in town, plenty of shopping and really good coffee.

We love it here.

great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Portland and loved the house. It's super comfortable and clean. Bonus points for the Apple TV. We had a bit of rain and some warm sun. The house is in a great location and close to everywhere we wanted to go. The neighborhood was great, quiet at night, but a short hop to restaurants we wanted to try. Love the restaurant Coquine, which was in walking distance! Great coffee!

Really great family house in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Portland and J.J.'s house was a hit with the entire family. It's comfortable, well stocked, has great beds and bedding, etc. We walked through Mt. Tabor Park a few times and caught views of Mt. Hood. It was also easy to zip downtown, and it's close to many great restaurants. It rained a good portion of the time we were there, but the back yard was large and looked like it would be great on a sunny day. We cooked meals in the large kitchen, made a fire and played ping pong in the finished basement. Overall I would highly recommend!

Great, easy living home.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, as advertised, plenty of space, convenient location. Plenty to do and a very complete and helpful guide left for us. It was easy for us to get in and out and the home had all the amenities for making ourselves at home.

Portland is great and the house was a perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Portland was great. Even though we got snow halfway through our trip, it was still a great trip. We ate a lot of great food and were able to get around town easily with a combination of public transit and Uber. The house had a really good guide from the owner of restaurants and things to do. Everything we did in the guide was well worth it. Obviously, the owner loves her town! The house was perfect for our group. It's in a perfect location. We loved Mt. Tabor Park. It was easy to get around and central to some of our favorite neighborhoods and restaurants. In the summer I bet it is even easier as I could imagine taking a nice walk through the park to the Hawthorne area. The house was cozy even with the snow outside and we enjoyed a fire in the fireplace. Great experience overall. I highly recommend!
