About Laurie Davis

We are empty nesters that love the Pacific Northwest and love to travel, hike, garden, and cook. We have another home we list on VRBO. # 618425.

Laurie Davis purchased this house in 2015

Why Laurie Davis chose Vancouver

We purchased this property due to its location in downtown Vancouver as we wanted to be able to walk to restaurants, shops, the farmer's market, and the waterfront. We are minutes away from Portland, Or and all it offers.

What makes this house unique

This house has so much character as it was built in 1901. It starts on the cozy, inviting front porch. It has original fir wood floors, craftsman features with painted white trim, tons of windows, a gourmet kitchen, a claw foot soaking tub, and a fenced back yard for privacy.

Vacation home dream.

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for two families to vacation together. With the split floor plan everyone had their own space and we could use the main floor to hang out together. The location is walking distance to many coffee shops and restaurants. We had everything thing we needed to feel at home.

We didn't want to leave!

Wonderful home and pleasant owners

  • 5 of 5

This house was even better than the pictures! The kitchen was fully stocked, the beds were cozy, the feng shui of the home made it very relaxing, and it is walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. We would definitely return for another fun-filled stay. Thank you for sharing your home!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Great rental for three singles or three couples, not so great for 4 singles because of the bedroom arrangement. Someone is left sleeping on a hideabed which is not very comfortable. Elderly people might find the staircase somewhat troubling as you need to walk up or down to get to the bedrooms and toilets. All in all a great place to stay for relatively vigorous people.

Beautiful, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This house is not only beautiful, but comfortable and convenient. Great attention to detail. Perfect for our family to gather, cook, eat and enjoy each other's company. Great spaces for all! Short drive to airport, and walking distance to local shops. Owner highly accessible and responds very quickly to anything you may need. I would love to stay at this lovely house again!
