About the property

West Haven House is close to the City, yet very private, clean and comfortable.

West Haven House is on a private, 1/2 acre lot. It is easy to unwind here after a full day of the many activities offered in the Portland area. The location is the best of both worlds, with loads of privacy, yet only approximately a 10 minute drive to Portland's Pearl District.

The yard is full of large trees and there is grass in the front and on the side for the children to play. West Haven House is located in a lovely, quiet neighborhood.

The house itself is extremely comfortable and clean. The beds are brand new. The master bedroom has a large walk in closet and a spacious spa like bathroom. The soaking tub is the perfect place to relax. The second bedroom has a high end queen mattress. The third bedroom has two great quality mattresses. All of the bedrooms are upstairs and it feels like you are in a tree house with the view out to the yard! The bonus room has a queen bed and daybed with a trundle bed. There is also a second bathroom in the hall upstairs. Both bathrooms are upstairs. There is a hairdryer. All of the linens are new and good quality. The large bonus room has a television and lots of room for the children to spread out and have their own space. The house is very family friendly.

The washer/dryer are upstairs. The fully stocked kitchen is downstairs. The kitchen is open to the dining room, which leads into the very comfortable living room, with a 50 inch television and gas fireplace. The windows throughout the house look into the private yard with plenty of trees. You may even see deer wandering through the yard!

Cable and high speed wireless internet are provided. The house has central air, although it stays very cool in the summer with all of the trees. The house is within one mile of the MAX Light Rail, that takes you to the zoo, downtown, out to the airport, etc. Market of Choice, a beautiful brand new supermarket, is about 1.5 miles away. New Season's Market is also close, as well as Costco, a movie theater, many restaurants and shops.

West Haven House is the perfect place to peacefully unwind after a fun day in the City or up at the mountain.

WE DO NOT ALLOW EVENTS AT THIS HOUSE. The neighborhood is very quiet. We also do not allow smoking or pets. Parking available for maximum of 4 cars. Check in time is 3pm. Check out is 11am.

Why Margaret Tassia chose Portland

The West side of Portland provides easy access to the City while still allowing for some space and privacy. This area is also in close proximity to Nike, Intel, Genentech, Solar World, Columbia Sportwear and St. Vincent's Hospital.

Great place to stay in Portland.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding in Portland and this house was conveniently located near downtown where all the activities happened. We had 4 couples stay in this house and it was very comfortable. We have used VRBO for many rentals and this one was one of the best we ever had.

We loved staying here and highly recommend to families.

It was wonderful to have the whole family under the same roof and with so much room to spread out. The neighborhood is so peaceful and relaxing. The owner is very accommodating. The house is modern and very clean. Wish we would have stayed longer!!!

Great wedding party HQ!

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and a toddler here as our main HQ for my wedding at the Hoyt Arboretum (Washington Park). My wife and I visit Portland often and usually stay off of NW 23rd and walk everywhere, so having to drive into town was a bit of a change of pace, but the house was a perfect size for our wedding party and there was plenty of room for the girls' getting-ready. The house was a convenient drive to the Washington Park area, and only about 15 minutes to get into our usual stomping-grounds around NW 23rd. If you're renting a car, this is a great place and there's groceries and restaurants within short driving distance. Very nice quiet neighborhood also! The house was in great condition and we didn't have any issues during our stay.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

House is in a quiet neighborhood, barely heard a peep from anyone our entire stay. The walk to the light rail station is only about 15 minutes. During the walk you do take a trail through some trees/wooded area that is uphill - we needed our cell phone as a flashlight when the sun went down. We also took Uber XL's to/from downtown that ended up being $30-$40 each. Great place to stay and would stay here again! Margaret is very responsive and easy to communicate with.
