About the property

Very private rooms with own entrance within walking distance to downtown.

Our property is located on a very quiet street in a safe neighborhood only a block below Washington Park where you will find the famous Rose Garden, Japanese Garden, Oregon zoo, Children’s museum and Hoyt Arboretum. Not to mention, the park itself is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature and live concerts in the summer. It is a couple of blocks to NW 23rd Avenue and five blocks to the Max light rail Blue and Red line (this line takes you directly to the Portland International Airport). You can catch a game at nearby Providence Park stadium or take a short stroll to the trendy Pearl district or downtown Portland.

When you are done exploring all the nearby sights. You will relax in your private room with private bathroom. You have your own entrance through the garage that is street level. Please note there is NO kitchen but cafes, bakeries, restaurants, delis and grocery stores are only a short walk from here. There is a mini refrigerator and freezer to store all the goodies you purchase. A microwave is available in your living room as well as a coffee maker, plates, cups and silverware.

In your bedroom, there is a queen sized bed, a coffee table and chairs. In your living room, you will find a comfortable futon where you can enjoy reading or lounging. There is also a TV and free WiFi high-speed internet.

Children are welcome but, please contact us if the total number of people is more than two so we can ensure your stay is comfortable. We also have a playpen for infants.

Do not hesitate to ask about anything that we have not mentioned above.

We would love to help make your visit to Portland a memorable one.

If you are looking for an affordable, clean, safe, simple and comfortable place to stay in an area that offers so much within a walking distance, this is it!

Why ARDMORE chose Portland

We only wanted buy a house within two blocks of where we are.

Because, it's located on a very quiet street in a safe and the most desirable neighborhood in Portland.

You can walk to evrywhere even downtown Portland is less than a mile walk and Washington Park is like our back yard. NW 23rd Avenue is also only 2 blocks away.

There are so many excellent restaurants, cafes, bakeries, delis and too many good things to mention around here.

We did not have a car and we did not need it because everything was walkable.

Cute Rental in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This rental is in a lovely neighborhood near a lot of great stuff in downtown Portland. The bedroom was spacious and had a lovely window seat, and one of the comfiest beds ever! It was very cold out when we stayed, and the floor heater wasn't great at heating up the bedroom, but there were extra blankets for us which made us comfortable. The bathroom was also nice, and we had everything we needed. Most of all, I really appreciated the attention to detail when it came to the instructions on how to get to the house from the airport, and get through the garage upon arrival. Also, they gave us a good list of recommendations on where to eat and explore, which is wonderful! They also responded right away whenever I contacted them with questions. The only other thing I would mention (which has been said in other reviews) is that if you aren't renting a car, like we didn't, then you have some very steep hills to climb to get to the house. The neighborhood gets steeper, and dragging our luggage up that wasn't ideal. Needless to say, we used uber a lot to avoid walking uphill in the cold again! Just know that it's much more than walking up a small hill. BUT it is well worth it, as long as you're prepared. This really was a perfect place to stay aside from that, and I would absolutely stay again!!

Comfortable retreat in great location

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my 5 nights at Ardmore very much. The apartment is quiet, spotless and very well appointed. It is reasonably close to the MAX, and in a neighbourhood with lots of great shops, restaurants and delis. Miyoko is most accommodating and I would certainly return.

Overall a great time

  • 5 of 5

The location was great close by to everything we wanted to visit. The place itself was exactly as described, very clean, quiet, and organized. Parking isn't too bad (always a spot, but parking permits are provided as well).

Would visit Portland and stay here again in the future.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

What a great place to use if you are looking to do a lot of exploring. Located in historic neighborhood and within walking distance of many other neighborhoods. Place was very clean and comfy. No kitchen but had frig and microwave with kitchen items for your convenience. Owners were very thorough in their directions and offered very helpful recommendations on places to eat and visit. Plan on staying again on our next visit to Portland !

It was good.

  • 4 of 5

The listing was not actually accurate : it stated :ground level", though in fact it is a basement, which did not really bother us. Amenities were exactly as described. It was clean and served our needs. WiFi did not work properly.

What pertains to customer service , we practically didn't have one. Everything was extremely impersonal: we never met the lady-owner (not that we were eager to mix with her!), but it would be nice, if at some point of your stay, you would be welcomed by the host. We had a problem with the garage opener, I was obliged to call the lady and was extremely offended/frustrated by her attitude. She talked to me as if I were a retarded child! Finally a male person came out (we just assumed he was the owner) and assisted with the problem. By the way, we came across him once more and he was really nice and amiable. I am surprised that there are so many reviews, praising her hospitality! One more detail: the location is great, very close to all the attractions, but if you have a mobility problem , you should consider that the house is on the top of a steep hill.

Everything we could hope for

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great price and free parking - all hard to beat. We were here for the Portland marathon weekend and everything was great. The only hiccup was that it took like a dozen+ tries to get into the unit initially. Either the batteries in the keypad are dying or there's some trick to it. Either way, thanks for a great rental!
