About Conrad Rios

My wife and I purchased this home in 2012 and have spent the last 3 years slowly renovating and upgrading the property. All of the rooms were taken down to the studs, walls were relocated, the ceiling was lifted, closets were added, doors were moved, a bathroom was added, skylight was installed upstairs, a complete kitchen remodel, spa style bathroom complete with a chandelier upstairs, all new flooring, all new furnishings. Everything within this home is brand new.

The deck addition is the perfect location for an evening family BBQ or a relaxing cocktail.

Conrad Rios purchased this house in 2012

Why Conrad Rios chose Willamette Valley

We chose Forest Grove over other areas of Portland metro, due to the fact that it's out of the hustle and bustle, and offers a very small town feel within a short drive to the coast or to City Center in Portland.

Forest Grove is a friendly small town feel with live theater and arts and entertainment provided by Pacific University! We enjoy nature, hiking, golf and taking beautiful hikes through the forest. The convenience of having the rugged shoreline within an hour's drive is the icing on our cake!

Great home in old town Forest Grove

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days at this location while visiting my 90 year old uncle and cousins. The home is roomy with areas to play cards and games. Decor is farmhouse chic and interesting. It is an older home, but recently modernized and clean. We would stay here again.

Nice, clean home in quiet small-town neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

First VRBO rental so I don't speak from a lot of experience but this house was all we could have wanted for a quiet family get-away with my sister and elderly mother. Plenty of room and privacy, quiet and clean, close to downtown Forest Grove and to the roads leading to the coast, the local vineyards, and Portland, all of which we saw during our stay here.

Cozy Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious farmhouse was perfect for our trip. Home was very clean and provided everything we needed. The big free standing tub was a welcomed retreat at the end of a long day! Owner was great to work with. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this fabulous two story home. It was spacious, comfortable, beautifully decorated and peaceful. There was enough in Forest Grove to answer our needs and small enough so there was no traffic. We were 40 minutes away from Portland, and 60 minutes to Cannon Beach and Tillamook. The owners were easy to work with and quick to respond to my questions. One bedroom was a good size and the other two were huge. The upstairs is a suite with king size bed, game room/couch area and a full bath. We ate dinner at Bites the first night and enjoyed their food and ordered from Kama'aina for our Thanksgiving meal! Both places had attentive and kind workers/owners. We had absolutely no problems at the house and look forward to spending time there in the future!

Quiet neighborhood--great location!

  • 5 of 5

The outside temperature when we stayed in August was 103! The downstairs AC worked great and the upstairs AC kept that bedroom very comfortable. The home was clean and well furnished. It worked well for four adults. The living room and dining area were great for our family group. We didn't have any problems with the property or location while we were there. It was a nice place to stay.
